Looking for a gastro break in North Norfolk in a fabulous characterful conversion in the heart of one of the best villages along the coast? Then look no further than The Chapel Thornham where you can literally park up and walk to every restaurant, pub and cafe to enjoy breakfast, lunch or supper in this ever-popular village with its sandy beach and coastal walks.
This beautifully converted chapel is now a very stylish holiday home and it has been sumptuously furnished throughout. With a large open plan living area with double height ceiling, sitting room and kitchen/dining area, you will love the light and social opportunities this property provides. When the nights are cooler, you will adore lighting the wood burning stove and warming your toes after a long walk on the marsh or beach.
Located right next to the church and the village green, you really couldn't get more central than the Chapel and this popular holiday let has attracted many repeat visitors over the years.
With so much local produce on your doorstep, make sure you head to Thorrnham Deli where you can stock up on freshly made sandwiches, cake and coffee and pack a picnic before heading out for the day to the beach. Or while away an afternoon picking apples and soft fruit at Drove Orchards, before returning to to cook up a treat in the well-equipped kitchen.
After a busy day exploring, head up the statement staircase to bed and slip into a deep slumber in any one of the stylish bedrooms. On the first floor you will also find a good sized bathroom and there is a wet room with WC downstairs allowing plenty of privacy for a group of friends or indeed a family wanting to escape for a short break, or longer stay on the stunning North Norfolk coast.

Thornham is picturesque and vibrant old smuggling village set right on the North Norfolk Coast. Wide expanses of salt marsh separate the village from the sea and it is a paradise for walkers and birdwatchers.
There are several great places to eat including Thornham Deli, selling all manner of local produce, cakes, specialities and great coffee (and breakfast and lunch too!), The Lifeboat Inn, an old smuggling haunt complete with heavy beams and roaring fires is great for relaxed dining whilst The Orange Tree is a great gastro pub. Head to The Chequers and enjoy a variety of dishes and great pizzas and pasta. You will love adore Drove Orchards at the end of the village, which started as a farm shop and pick-your-own-fruit farm, but which has now evolved into so much more! Now boasting a fresh fish bar, Gurney's, Eric's fish and chips (such a cool place) and Eric's pizza restaurant which is housed in a yurt. This village offers so much!
The beach, reached by a walk past the harbour and over the sea defence and across the salt marshes is stunning and you will be rewarded by peace and quiet whatever time of year you are visiting. Outside of the village you will find other spectacular beaches; Old Hunstanton; Holme-next-the-Sea; Titchwell and Brancaster and a few miles further don't miss walking on one of the best beaches in the UK at Holkham Estate, where you can also explore the hall and its vast deer parkland.
At Wells-next-the-Sea adults and children alike will love crabbing on the quay or visit the seals at nearby Morston or Blakeney. HM The Queen's Sandringham Estate is close by as is the Titchwell RSPB Reserve, or head to Holme Dunes nature reserve run by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust to explore the wildlife that frequent this beautiful coastline.
