East Anglian inn collection Chestnut Group has announced its recent acquisition of a new Norfolk property, the Globe Inn in Wells-next-the-Sea.
On the north Norfolk coast, the award-winning restaurant and inn overlooks a leafy Georgian square.
There are 19 en-suite bedrooms, offering a choice of accommodation ranging from a quirky single to self-catering suites.
Philip Turner, who founded Chestnut in 2012, commented: “We are really excited to welcome the Globe Inn, located in Wells-next-the-Sea, into the Chestnut Collection.
“Having been looking to extend our East Anglian footprint into Norfolk for the past two years, we were extremely pleased to discover The Globe Inn, with its great location, successful business and talented team all sharing our vision and values to champion the best of the region.
“Personally, I’ve always enjoy visiting the area, which is fast becoming a go-to destination with its impressive long sandy beaches and pine wood nature reserve, buzzing community and close proximity to historic Holkham.”
Meanwhile the inn’s owners Stephen and Antonia Bournes commented: “Having enjoyed owning and running The Globe Inn for the last six and half years, it has been a real delight to get to know and become a part of the Wells community.
“The decision to hand the ownership over to Chestnut is a natural one, we look forward to working closely with them in the transition period to ensure the best outcome for our loyal team, visitors and guests.”
