Thornham is a popular village to visit all year round, with walkers, artists, bird watchers, cyclists and families attracted to the peace and tranquillity of this part of Norfolk. Located within the Norfolk coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Thornham is a quaint village with many charming flint dwellings. A wide stretch of marshes rich in wildlife separates Thornham from the sea and there is a small harbour, accessible to boats at high tide, which provides a perfect place for a spot of crabbing.
The village has three quality restaurants all within walking distance of North View. In addition, Thornham Deli and Drove Orchards on the outskirts of Thornham both have retail and specialist food outlets.
A pleasant walk from North View along the sea wall will bring you to a boardwalk and Thornham beach. Close by is a Norfolk Wildlife Trust visitors centre and The Norfolk Ornithologist Association, Holme reserve. The popular Titchwell RSPB reserve lies half a mile to the east of North View and attracts many migrant bird species.
