WONDERFUL FOR BIRD WATCHERS, SAILORS, WRITERS OR JUST FOR CHILLING OUT!

The very select village of BURNHAM MARKET (Chelsea-on-Sea) is only two miles inland from the coast at Brancaster Staithe. There are many excellent quality shops surrounding the picturesque village green, together with its restaurants, pubs and elegant houses.

The exclusive villages THORNHAM, BRANCASTER, BRANCASTER STAITHE and BURNHAM OVERY STAITHE are all within easy reach by car, being only a few minutes drive away. Most have their own pubs, village store. Most public houses in the area have their own special ales especially the centuries old smugglers inn, the Lifeboat at Thornham, which has a great selection of real ales. The whole area along this stretch of coast is famous for its scenic beauty and superb views over the local harbours and saltings and are a must for holiday maker and bird watcher alike. There is also a vast selection of local produce including seafood. Holkham Hall is not far away and there is a very good choice of bird observatories and nature reserves within easy motoring or even biking distance.


Along the coast at HOLME, the ancient Peddars Way route starts, taking a straight course to Thetford which is still accessible, and well worth a visit for exploring the local countryside. The beach is quiet with a large expanse of sand, backed by dunes. This is where Seahenge was discovered; the 4,000 year old timbers were removed under a considerable amount of protest but it can now be seen in King’s Lynn museum.
