West End water mill is located in Burnham Overy Staithe, arguably one of the most desirable locations on the North Norfolk coast. The creek is spectacular in all weathers and the walk along the sea bank to the beach is very special. Overy beach is deserted and wildlife is abundant with miles of sand backed by high sand dunes making it a desolate but incredible place. In season terns nest here on the beach and are protected by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust. The Hero pub and restaurant is a couple of minutes walk from the quay side and provides hearty and wholesome food. The Norfolk Coast path runs through Overy Staithe and The Black Windmill owned by the National Trust is a true North Norfolk landmark dominating the skyline for miles.

Agents Note 
The property is held under a 99-year repairing lease commencing May 1993. A ground rent of £260 is payable along with an annual service charge, calculated on a floor area basis for all the properties to include buildings insurance. The owners have been paying a service charge in the region of £700-£1000 per annum in recent years which includes the use and maintenance of communal gardens along the river banks. Works in recent years have included repointing to the Mill. A condition of the lease is that externally the building must continue to appear as a water mill. This means no washing may be hung out and no modifications/extensions to the structure.

Constructed of a traditional redbrick and pantile roof the original structure dates back to 1790 and was in operation until 1939 when production ceased and the mill was acquired by the National Trust. The National Trust took West End Water Mill through an ingenious renovation program in 1992 along with support from renowned architect Kit Martin CBE restoring it to its former historical glory.

In recent years the property has been run as a successful holiday let business with many guests making repeat visits and leaving glowing feedback about their stay.
