Local Area Information

Weybourne is a village situated in the North Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village straddles the A149 coast road and is three miles west of Sheringham and close to the historic market town of Holt. The village population is less than 600 and consists largely of local Norfolk residents, retirees and visitors who come to enjoy delightful old brick and flint cottage rentals, camping or caravanning, or to enjoy a hotel holiday.

Weybourne is mentioned in the Domesday book. There are remains of an old Augustinian priory founded around 1200 AD on the site of a simpler Saxon church. Since this village is a designated conservation area, there are many fine examples of Norfolk brick and flint cottages to see dating from the 17th century, through to modern replicas.

The village is surrounded by arable fields, woodland and heathland. The area is excellent for walking, enjoying the countryside and coast. There are opportunities to see wildlife, sea-fishing on Weybourne Beach and bird-watching are very popular.

The village has it's own website, www.weybourne.net

Best Beaches

Sheringham beach - this beach is shallow with lots of rocks and good for crabbing. Check the tides as it virtually disapears at high tide

Wells beach - one of the best loved beaches in the country, at low tide a huge expanse of sandy family friendly beach and at high tide transformed into a working harbour

Holkham beach -  perhaps the most spectacular beach in Norfolk, a vast open beach backed by pine forests

West Runton beach - this beach is a 10 minute drive away with sand and shingle and large sandstone cliffs
