It’s such a special place and usually Thornham is the first stopping off point with a visit to the Lifeboat Inn for coffee or lunch after the three hour drive from Oxfordshire, then a wander down to the sea from there past that stone barn, if you have been you will know the one where the boats are anchored in the waterways that are usually resting in muddy banks until the tide comes in again.
Depending on where I am staying in the area I often take the boat out from Blakney to visit the seals and love that they swim around the boat to check us out too !
Burnham Market and Holt Town are both refreshing places for their individual stylish shops rather than the chain style high streets of most towns.
My favourite place of all is Cley next the Sea a gorgeous village set back from the sea behind the salt marshes , it has a beautiful 18th century windmill that I stayed in years ago and woke to find November snow on the beach the following morning. The villages has a pottery studio named Made in Cley, a Smokehouse for delicious smoked fish etc, a superb delicatessen and most importantly the gorgeous Art Gallery called Pinkfoot. They specialise in British Modern Nature Art . So as you can imagine it means a lot emotionally for me to now have my work represented by this wonderful Gallery and to be one of ‘ The Pinkfoot Artists’.
The Coast Road Exhibition runs until the 31st August.
