Balance a trip to the pub with a long walk
The north Norfolk coast is renowned for its beautiful coast line, but just inland, in the picturesque village of Thornham is a hidden gem; The Lifeboat Inn. Open since the 16th Century, The Lifeboat Inn has recently been revamped by Marco Pierre-White who has ensured that the food matches the beautiful surroundings.
While Mussels and Fish and Chips remain on their menu year round, go regularly to see how the menu changes with the season. With a main course from £12, it isn't the cheapest but The Lifeboat Inn, with its hand carved pillars, a modern conservatory, and a roaring fire is equally matched by its stunning surrounding.
A five mile drive and you reach Brancaster Staithe.
However, at Brancaster Staithe there is something for everyone. Upon reaching the end of the board-walk are the dunes that mark the edge of Brancaster beach. Brancaster beach is a stunning beach with miles of golden sand; perfect for a brisk winter walk or a summer sunbathe.
