Stretching across 2,000 acres of parkland, farmland and woodland, the beautiful Thornham Estate is located in the valley of the River Dove in rural north Suffolk. Thornham has a long and rich history and has belonged to the Henniker-Major family for over 250 years. The family continue to live at Thornham Hall and take a keen interest in the running of the Estate. Today, in addition to the farm, a number of other enterprises operate on the Thornham Estate. These include over 12 miles of well-established and popular permissive walks, known as Thornham Walks, a cafe, a restaurant, a Walled Garden, some fishing lakes, a bed and breakfast, some holiday properties and a campsite.There are also several longer-term rental properties available at Thornham Hall and in the Red House Yard complex.

Please note that the Thornham Estate and Walks annual closure day is Tuesday 5th March 2019. All permissive footpaths, car parks and the play area will be closed on this day. We will reopen as normal on Wednesday 6th March.
