The East Anglia region

The famous Broads, the wild and wonder-filled beaches, the huge skies: Norfolk is a remote and inspiring corner of England, just a couple of hours from London. This flat-as-a-pancake county is filled with historical houses and wild countryside, and criss-crossed with waterways. It also has perhaps the most fascinating, breathtaking and romantic coastline in the country.


Thornham itself has 4 excellent pubs / restaurants that are all bar one are within easy walking distance of The Gables. These are:

The Lifeboat Inn, Thornham - The Lifeboat Inn on the North Norfolk Coast has been trading since the 16th Century it has recently been taken over by the famous television chef Marco Pierre-White. The Inn's original character has been carefully preserved throughout. This wonderful country pub contains several unique areas such as our very popular AA rossetted restaurant, the friendly and welcoming lounge with a lovely open fireplace, the bright and warming conservatory and our traditional, history soaked bar.

The Orange Tree, Thornham - The Orange Tree is a contemporary dining pub, located in the centre of Thornham. It has recently been listed in the top 20 of all dining pubs in the UK by Eat Out Magazine, and is now recognised as one of the best places to eat in North Norfolk. The food is all from locally sourced produce and served in an al fresco dining area or alternatively in large garden area. There is also a children's playground, perfect for warm summer afternoons and evenings.

The Coach House, Thornham - This is the sister pub to The Lifeboat Inn which is just a short 5 minute walk away on route to the village. The Old Coach House is a country pub with a mediterranean style. It offers 2 bar areas with tables and sofas, a lounge and a Pizza Pie restaurant. Outside is a large patio area offering extensive seating in a delightful south facing sun trap where you can sit and enjoy watching the world go by. There is also a rear patio area with garden furniture, patio heaters and table umbrellas. There is also a children's play area.

The Yurt, Drove Orchards, Thornham - This is a truly uniquie and new concept based in round semi-permanent tent with coned roof that provides a warm welcoming environment. The food is simple and locally sourced and reasonably priced.

Outside of Thornham we would also recommend:

The Hoste Arms, Burnham Market - The Hoste Arms is a 17th Century Coaching Inn situated on the village green in the village of Burnham Market or 'Chelsea-Next-the-Sea' as it is commonly known these days. The Hoste offers a fine dining experience along with the traditional pub element and areas to relax and enjoy afternoon tea.

The White Horse, Brancaster Staithe - The White Horse is situated on the marshland at Brancaster Staithe, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty and the restaurant offer outstanding views over the Marshes. There is an extensive menu of local cuisine with seafood specialities and seasonal shellfish.


North Norfolk is famous for its long, white sandy beaches such as those at Holkham, Wells and Brancaster - the setting for pop videos, movies and lots of happy family days out. The wide beaches are washed by safe shallow waters and are perfect for sunbathers, swimmers and those looking for plenty of space to play.

The beach and surrounding marshes at Thornham provide a beautiful area for walking and forms part of the Norfolk Coast Path. Many well known spots can be located on route to the beach from the marshes along the 'bank' including the famous Thornham Stumps and Boat House.

Further along the coast, Mundesley is a 'Blue Flag' beach where children can paddle safely in tidal pools and the pebbly beach at Sheringham has also won a Blue Flag award for its cleanliness.

As you drive along the North Norfolk coast road you are bound to discover your own favourite beach.

Hunstanton and its Beach is famous for its striped cliffs and is otherwise known as Sunny Hunny. The beach and cliffs face west which means they capture the sunshine and are the perfect spots for viewing some spectacular sunsets.

The shallow beach runs for two miles along the coast to Brancaster and the tide can go out a mile, allowing rock pools to appear around the groynes.
