Thornham Sail


A one way sail from Wells Next the Sea, west to Thornham. This involves a sail across the Wells sand banks and then along the coast through Holkham Bay, Scolt Head Island then into the notorious smugglers creeks that lead into Thornham harbour. We depart at the start of the tide and use the entire tide to reach Thornham. Once safely moored up we enjoy a hot drink and one of Norfolk’s best locally sourced meals, which could include local artisan sourdough, Norfolk cheeses, locally made pies and more.

4-5 hours, followed by a short walk to our Land Rover, then we drive you back to Wells, which takes about 30 mins.

Boat Options:
Our 30’ open wooden lug rigged whelker, which can take a maximum of 8 people.

£975 including a taxi to return you to the start point.

We work with local food producers to provide some of the best of Norfolk’s sustainable food. Breakfast is typically bacon and eggs with tea or locally ground coffee or a vegetarian option such as halloumi cheese, mushrooms and tomatoes and for lunch we serve a light picnic or if it is cold, soup. We also serve homemade cake which could vary from flapjack to lemon drizzle cake to chocolate cake. 

No experience is required, we are super flexible, so you can either drive the boat and handle the sails or just sit back and relax!
