Thorpeness village is different from any other holiday resort, being the creation of Glencairn Stuart Ogilvie and is still unspoilt since it was built in the 1920’s. Ogilvie’s idea was to create the ideal holiday village “for people who want to experience life as it was when England was Merrie England”. Absolutely English, English in her beauty, English in her devotion to traditional healthy open air pleasures.
