Location Overstrand is an attractive and increasingly popular seaside village on the North Norfolk coast, at the heart of Poppyland which in the latter part of the 19th century was catapulted into prominence and became known as the village of millionaires boasting many architectural gems including The Pleasance the former home of Lord and Lady Battersea, Overstrand Hall the former home of Baron and Lady Hillingdon and the Methodist church all designed by Sir Edwin Lutchins. Past visitors to the village include Winston Churchill, Jessie Boot the founder of Boots the Chemist, the Chivers (jam) family and Clement Scott writer for the Daily Telegraph.

Overstrand offers both coast and countryside walks and a good range of local amenities and facilities to include a convenience store/post office on the high street, alongside The White Horse pub, primary school, church, village hall and art centre. In addition there is an excellent garden centre with tea room with most impressive Sea Marge Hotel, beautiful sandy beaches and well known cliff top café. Regular bus services take you to North Walsham and Cromer and hourly to Norwich, Sheringham and Holt. 

Description Standing on a wooded plot extending to 1.53 acres (subject to survey), this substantial and imposing detached residence dates from the early 1900's very evident with its arts and crafts styling.

Having been owned by the current family for a number of years and run as an independent and private hotel, the Overstrand Court Hotel harks back to the heyday of the British seaside holiday, which can be seen in the old brochures and photographs within our brochure.

The property still retains much of its original charm, character and period features but requires a significant programme of modernisation and improvement to restore the property to its former glory.
