Holme-next-Sea and Thornham Beach(10 minute drive) is a quiet beach and a favourite with locals who love the Norfolk coast. There’s a smooth, flat sandy beach, rolling sand dunes and a village pub. Nearby you’ll find a wildfowl reserve and a nudist beach: the place has something for everyone!
If you want a much more secluded beach day then take the turning down a sandy track on the right hand side just before the beach. You will have to pay for a daily membership to the Holme Wildlife Trust but you can then drive for over a mile down to the Wildlife Centre and walk through the reserve forest to access the beach much further down- the golden sands will often be practically deserted. The Wild Life trust has a small cafe, loo and sells ice creams! The Lifeboat Inn is also just a few steps from the harbour at Thornham and around the corner you will find our sister hotel Anna’s House.
