Burnham Market cottages
Burnham Market is known locally as Little Chelsea and it is easy to see why. This charming picture perfect North Norfolk Georgian village is where elegant houses and flint cottages are all clustered around a delightful village green. With a selection of galleries, boutiques, a posh hat shop, excellent restaurants & pubs it is understandable why the village attracts so many visitors each year, including many famous faces.
There are seven Burnham’s in total, with Burnham Market being the most prosperous – Burnham Thorpe which is further inland was Nelson’s birthplace and you can visit “Nelson’s Local” The Lord Nelson pub serves good food, real ales and the pubs speciality which is a herb & spice-infused brandy called Nelson’s blood in a friendly & relaxed atmosphere.
There are many sailing opportunities in the area at Brancaster, Blakeney and Burnham Overy Staithe along with delightful walks around the coast, we would recommend the short walk out to the beach from Burnham Overy Staithe, you head along the sea wall that starts at the end of the road by the harbour, to the dunes then head left past a point known as Gun Hill, keep going past Gun Hill and you’ll end up on the same beach that extends round to Holkham Gap.
You will find Holkham just three miles away from Burnham Market – a fantastic family day out with the award winning sandy beach, plus Holkham Estate with its woodland deer park, children’s adventure play area and impressive hall to explore.
