Sidestrand is a small village to the east of the popular coastal resort of Cromer and is perfectly located for a holiday at the coast. Venture into neighbouring Overstrand for a super day at the beach, and with a cliff top cafe within walking distance you won't have far to go for your ice creams or a spot of lunch. For an evening meal there is The White Horse pub in Overstrand serving locally sourced food and drink. For a more traditional visit to the seaside make your way along the cliff path into Cromer and admire the stunning scenery as you go.  Cromer is a popular Victorian town with a wealth of local history, shops and amenities including golf course and tennis courts.  For keen walkers there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy a stroll in the countryside or the North Norfolk Coastal Path which runs from Hunstanton to Great Yarmouth.
