SITUATION

This location indisputably lives up to its status as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Between Burnham Overy Staithe and the sea, the river spreads out into a tapestry of tidal creeks that flow through saltmarshes and finally out to sea between a gap in the sand dunes known as Burnham Harbour. The beach is a good mile's walk from the village and, therefore, totally unspoilt and peaceful with vast expanses of golden sands and big, open blue skies. Today, the village is better known as a popular recreational sailing centre with its own sailing club, The Hero public house and restaurant, village hall and childrens’ play area, and offers a wonderful ‘Swallows and Amazons’ lifestyle for all ages.

A ferry service from the village takes you to Scolt Head Island (tides and weather permitting) which is run by English Nature where you can while away a few hours picnicking, relaxing and enjoying the vast array of flora and fauna on this idyllic offshore 4 mile long barrier island.

Burnham Market is just under 2 miles to the south and is widely regarded as one of the finest villages in Norfolk, the village offers a charming and eclectic range of independent shops, including a fish monger, butcher, delicatessen, wine merchant and post office and also benefits from doctor and dentist surgeries, a primary school, tennis courts, garage, a parish church and several coffee shops. With the Hoste Arms and other well-established hotels and restaurants sitting comfortably alongside exciting, new venues such as Socius and No. Twenty9, this a lively hub right on your doorstep.
