Thornage is in north Norfolk, situated just south west of the picturesque town of Holt and roughly 6 miles from the coastal villages of Blakeney and Cley next the Sea. Surrounding the village are water meadows and areas of woodland and a maze of intriguing quiet lanes waiting to be discovered. The nearby Georgian market town of Holt is renowned for its attractive street frontages and for its wide and eclectic range of independent shops. As well as Bakers and Larners – an exceptional privately owned department store, there are boutiques, cafes and bars, doctors’ surgery, dentist, bank and post office. Holt is also home to Gresham’s pre-prep, prep and senior schools, founded in 1555. Access to the coast is only 6 miles to the north at the old ports of Cley and, a little further along, Blakeney. These are Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) with one of the best bird reserves in Europe and a wide variety of other leisure pursuits available such as sailing, seal watching, golf and walking along the Norfolk Coast path. There are saltmarshes, long sandy beaches at low tides, creeks and the quintessential north Norfolk wide, open skies.
