We had a wonderful stay at the cottage, which is very well equipped and comfortable. Although the weather was snowy and frosty, we still had nice hikes along the coast. We would love to see it in the spring . Many thanks for letting us stay.
Thornham is a small coastal village 4 miles from Hunstanton and about 10 miles from Wells. There is a village shop, pubs and restaurants all within easy walking distance. The attractive and very popular harbour has a small car park and this area is a must for bird watchers and walkers alike. you can reach the sand dunes and soft beach from here which is about a mile's walk.
Only two miles inland from the coast at Brancaster Staithe is the very select village of BURNHAM MARKET
(Chelsea-on-Sea) where there are many excellent quality shops surrounding the picturesque village green, together with its restaurants, pubs and elegant houses.
The exclusive villages of BRANCASTER, BRANCASTER STAITHE
and BURNHAM OVERY STAITHE
are all within easy reach by car, being only a few minutes drive away. Most have their own pubs, churches and village store/Post Office and properties in the brochure are not far from each of these. Most public houses in the area have their own special ales especially the centuries old smugglers inn, the Lifeboat at Thornham, which has a great selection of real ales. The whole area along this stretch of coast is famous for its scenic beauty and superb views over the local harbours and saltings and are a must for holidaymaker and bird watcher alike. There is also a vast selection of local produce including seafood. Holkham Hall is not far away and there is a very good choice of bird observatories and nature reserves within easy motoring or even biking distance.
Along the coast at HOLME
, the ancient Peddars Way route starts, taking a straight course to Thetford which is still accessible, and well worth a visit for exploring the local countryside. The beach is quiet with a large expanse of sand, backed by dunes. This is where Seahenge was discovered; the 4,000 year old timbers were removed under a considerable amount of protest but it can now be seen in King’s Lynn museum.
