Suaeda Cottage

Burnham Overy Staithe, Norfolk

Comfortable, traditional cottage on beautiful North Norfolk coast. Villages to explore, wildlife, sandy beaches, sea air and long walks...


3 beds


2 bedrooms


Sleeps 4


A pretty tree-lined path leads from the coast road to two Victorian cottages, one of which is Suaeda. Park the car 30m away… and you’re at the cottage in a trice, all peaceful and private. At the front is a lovely cobbled yard with a tamarisk tree, enclosed by a sturdy gate. At the back: a beautiful, secluded walled garden where you can hear the gulls and watch the geese overhead – do remember your binoculars. The hall has space for coats, beach gear, wellies and games, and the sitting room is charming and quirky, with 1960s armchairs, an open fireplace (coals provided), Venetian glass lights and lots of good art. A passage leads to the dining room and kitchen, well-kept and pleasingly old-fashioned. Bedrooms and loft room are upstairs. You’ll love it all: the old sash windows, the book-laden shelves, the winding staircases, the family antiques. What’s more, you’re a minute’s walk from the harbour, Brancaster Bay and the Burnhams are rich for exploring, and if cooks fancy a night off the Hero is opposite, for very good pub food.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Victoria Selwyn

  • Suaeda Cottage is 100 yards' walk from the water, 50 yards from the Hero bar/restaurant and even closer to the Coasthopper bus stops to Kings Lynn one way, Cromer and Sheringham the other.
  • There are plenty of local walks, starting with the one along the Bank (sea wall) to the beach. In rough weather, gaze out to sea from the converted attic or light the open fire in the cosy downstairs sitting-room (not the only heating!)
  • Apart from the Hero just over the road, we recommend the Nelson in Burnham Thorpe - or of course Sawday's pubs The White Horse and the Jolly Sailors in Brancaster.
  • Fashionable Burnham Market (2 miles) has a great fish shop and Wells-next-the-sea (5 miles) has a full range of food shops and a bank. Fakenham's Thursday morning market includes a flea-market and auctions. There's a great fish and chip shop too.
  • The North Norfolk coast is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Overy Staithe itself is fantastic for birdwatching, and Cley, Thornham and Titchwell are easily reached by bus. And at dusk, you can watch bats swooping over the lawn.
  • Places to visit include nature reserves like Cley Marshes, stately homes, historic sites such as Walsingham, Castle Acre, Castle Rising and Kings Lynn, or fun stuff like the Wells-Walsingham Steam Railway, Cromer Pier or Hunstanton Sealife.
