The 16th Century Lifeboat Inn is a real Norfolk treasure in its stunning location on the coast (even the car park has a breathtaking view out onto Holme Dunes).
A traditional coastal hotel, The Lifeboat is situated in Thornham village, minutes from the stunning sandy beaches of north Norfolk.
Recently refurbished, The Lifeboat Inn has a welcoming, history-soaked bar with crackling fires and a selection of real ales, lounge with comfy sofas, unpretentious and relaxed restaurant and the popular conservatory featuring an ancient 200 year old vine (that we once heard thrives on Abbot Ale). The Lifeboat’s restaurant serves seasonal changing menus that represent the very best of British food. If you are looking for a unique setting for a group gathering, celebration or party, the charming courtyard with two cedar wood pavilions offers one of the best al fresco dining experiences on the Norfolk coast.
You will also find 13 extremely comfortable and inviting bedrooms to snuggle up after a day spent exploring the area. Each of the inn’s 13 bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms, some with separate showers and free standing baths and The White Company toiletries. All the bedrooms have king size beds, smart TVs, DAB radios, tea and coffee making facilities and homemade biscuits. Some of the rooms offer stunning views over the marshes and Thornham Harbour to the sea (including the famous Coal Barn – said to be England’s ‘most photographed building’).
The Lifeboat is situated near Hunstanton, Brancaster and Holkham beaches, the RSPB bird reserve in Titchwell and on the doorstep of the royal estate at Sandringham.
This atmospheric coastal hideaway is a homely haven for every guest, two-or four legged. It’s a place where wellies, walking-boots and the well-heeled sit comfortably side by side.
The Lifeboat has free wi-fi and free parking.
