This location indisputably lives up to its status as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Between Burnham Overy Staithe and the sea, the river spreads out into a tapestry of tidal creeks that flow through saltmarshes and finally out to sea between a gap in the sand dunes known as Burnham Harbour. This offers a wonderful ''Swallows and Amazons' lifestyle for all ages, from motor boating, sailing, kayaking, or swimming to picnics on wonderful sandy beaches in the summer months and fabulous coastal walks all year round. The beach is a good mile's walk from the village and, therefore, totally unspoilt and peaceful with vast expanses of golden sands. Today, the village is a popular recreational sailing centre with its own sailing club, The Hero public house and restaurant, village hall and children's' play area. A ferry service from the village takes you to Scolt Head Island (tides and weather permitting) which is run by English Nature where you can while away a few hours picnicking, relaxing and enjoying the vast array of flora and fauna on this idyllic offshore 4-mile-long barrier island. Burnham Market is just under 2 miles to the south and is widely regarded as one of the finest villages in Norfolk, the village offers a charming and eclectic range of independent shops, including a fish monger, butcher, delicatessen, wine merchant and post office and also benefits from doctor and dentist surgeries, a primary school, tennis courts, garage, a parish church and several coffee shops. With the Hoste Arms and other well-established hotels and restaurants sitting comfortably alongside exciting, new venues such as Socius and No. Twenty9, this a lively hub right on your doorstep. __________ DESCRIPTION Sitting on the coastal side of the A149 and benefitting from land that runs down to the sea wall and coastal views, the land currently has two existing adjacent properties, The Hollies is a 3-bedroom semidetached cottage on the east side of the plot, Furusato sits more centrally to the plot, this property is considerably bigger and we believe it to be uninhabitable. Both properties benefit from their own access driveways. The village development boundary is located approximately halfway down the site, and the properties benefit from coastal views. __________ LOCAL AUTHORITY Kings Lynn and West Norfolk Band E __________ SERVICES Mains electricity, water and drainage, oil fired central heating __________ DIRECTIONS From Wells-next-the-Sea take the A149 past Holkham and into Burnham Overy Staithe, the properties can be found at the beginning of the village on your right hand side opposite Glebe Lane. __________ DATE DETAILS PRODUCED 29th September 2021 __________ IMPORTANT NOTICE 1.
