The Lifeboat Inn

About

The Lifeboat Inn is a coastal hotel, restaurant and bar in a fabulous location, serving real ales, home-cooked food and offering a relaxing ‘get away from it all’. It is situated on the North Norfolk coast in a sleepy village location, on the edge of marshes.

Recently refurbished the inn has a welcoming bar with crackling fires, lounge with comfy sofas, unpretentious and relaxed restaurant and the popular conservatory featuring a 200 year old vine which leads to the peaceful, sun-trapped courtyards.

The Lifeboat Inn also has 13 extremely comfortable and inviting bedrooms to snuggle up after a day spent exploring the area.

Four-legged guests are welcome!
Don't forget your four-legged family members when you visit The Lifeboat Inn. The inn has a number of dog-friendly rooms, dog blankets and bowl with treats in room on arrival, they also serve a delicious sausage for breakfast to all the guests with paws. There are plenty of stick-throwing opportunities and lots of places to walk your furry friends right on The Lifeboat’s doorstep.
