Overstrand, Cromer, Norfolk
Sleeps 8 in 4 Bedrooms
Nestled up on the North Norfolk coast just 2 miles from Cromer, you’ll find the pretty cliff-top village of Overstrand. The village once had a modest fishing industry and a few fishing boats are still based here. Just a 4-minute walk from our holiday cottage 2B Harbord Road, you’ll find the wonderfully long stretch of Overstrand beach backed with pretty beach huts. The sand is soft making it perfect for a spot of sandcastle building.
Overstrand village boasts a couple of eateries, both within easy walking distance of our holiday accommodation. The White Horse is a lively pub in the centre of the village and prides itself on local produce. With beautiful gardens and a fantastic children’s play area to keep the little ones occupied while you take a moment to sit back and relax.
The Cliff Top Cafe is another good choice for delicious food, with the added bonus of being able to enjoy fantastic views over the sea.
In the centre of the village, we are lucky to have a convenience store, Central Overstrand Stores with all the usual supplies plus it incorporates a post office too.
