The Catholic National Shrine’s main pilgrim accommodation, Elmham House, is situated in the heart of Walsingham on Friday Market Place. It is a stone’s throw away from the Abbey Grounds and 30 minute walk away from the Slipper Chapel Shrine. Our aim is to provide reasonably priced accommodation for those who wish to visit the Shrine, so it is not possible to book specific rooms, although preferences will be noted.

Breakfast options include continental and full English. There is also a bar. Bedrooms vary from standard singles, to twin-bedded and family rooms which all have electric heating and a hand-basin. Soap, towels and bedlinen are provided. Ensuite rooms are additionally equipped with showers, a TV and complimentary hot drink facilities.

The licensed restaurant serves a set menu (to be booked in advance). Medical and other diets can often be accommodated. Special occasions – birthdays, anniversaries etc – can be catered for on application in advance, and many groups come for a winter ‘Two-for-One” get-away and have a lovely Christmas meal too.
