Burnham Market holiday cottages
Why go on holiday to Burnham Market?
A quintessential Norfolk village, Burnham Market is located in the north of Norfolk, England, close to the sea yet not quite on the coast itself. Over recent years, it has become an incredibly popular destination for relaxing breaks away from the bustle of seaside tourism – and yet it is just a mile inland from some of Norfolk’s best beaches.
Whilst it is unclear whether it is named after the River Burn or the area’s historic amber trade, what is certain is that it remains a thriving market village, in recent years attracting second-home owners from London, keen to explore its natural beauty and relaxing atmosphere. This has earned it the nickname Chelsea-on-sea, named after the district in the capital city.
Things to do on holiday in Burnham Market
The surrounding area features wonderful historic buildings such as the Palladian Houghton Hall or Holkham Hall and Estate, a large stately home with grounds as well as the ruins of Creake Abbey.
Visitors can walk around the local area of Burnham Market, explore nearby Deepdale Marsh, or further afield along the coast, visit the Scolt Head Island National Nature Reserve.
Nearby Holkham, Wells and Holt are well worth a visit. For families, Holkham Hall features a woodland play area and Walsingham has a fun filled treasure trail. Or why not try seal spotting in Blakeney?
There are so many nearby beaches, it can be tough deciding which one to go to. Some of the best include Wells-By-The-Sea (6 miles away), Brancaster (2 miles) and the huge expanse of Holkham (just 1 mile). Whichever you chose, you are sure to have a great day out.
And if, after a hard day of exploring, you fancy relaxing over a coffee or locally brewed beer, then try the ever popular and upmarket pub and restaurant, the Hoste Arms.
There are also plenty of great places to eat in the local area: the Victoria Inn in Holkham and the Season Seafood & Grill in Wells are great dinner choices, while North Street Bistro offers great lunch and brunch options.
