Burnham Overy Town is an attractive unspoilt small hamlet, situated next to its sister village Burnham Overy Staithe, only a mile from the largest of The Burnham’s, Burnham Market. The main feature of the village is not just the great location on the stunning North Norfolk Coast, but also the lovely St Clement's Church with its unusual central tower, one of only 14 mediaeval churches in the country with this layout. The church sits proudly on the hill overlooking the river Burn.


The original village of all the seven sisters known as The Burnhams. The village name means 'over the water', meaning it was across the river from the other Burnhams. The church was begun in the Norman period and was granted to the canons of Walsingham Priory in the early 12th century. Burnham Overy was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086.


The nearby larger village of Burnham Market is the stylish go to destination with many small independent and boutique shops from lifestyle and clothing to traditional butcher and bakers to delis and galleries. There are also some great eateries and bars to cater for all tastes.

For family fun the beaches of Brancaster and Wells are superb. The North Norfolk Coast has a lot of wildlife and nature reserves including Cley, Holme, Titchwell and Snetttisham. The grand estates of Holkham, Houghton and Sandringham make wonderful days out for all to enjoy. The Norfolk Coast and country has many local farm shops and farmers markets. Creake Abbey in North Creake is just 3 miles from Burnham Market and has a range of homemade produce, meats and vegetables in two barns along with a farmers market held on the first Saturday of each month. There are nearby farm shops in Thornham, Walsingham, Wiveton and Heacham.

The Ratcliff's, 14th of August 2020

The barn was so much bigger than expected and in a lovely location.
The balcony was sun trap for breakfast.
We loved the space, character & location - in the country but within easy walking distance of Burnham Market. It felt so homely.
We all absolutely loved it - one of the best places we have stayed.

All Sowerbys holiday cottages are supplied with bed linen and towels and the cost of heating is included in the rental price.

Electric Vehicle charging

Cars may only be charged if there is an EV charging point fitted at the property. The cost of electricity is NOT included in the rental price and Sowerbys Holiday Cottages must be notified if the charger is used and an additional surcharge will be made. Due to insurance purposes, guests must never charge their car using a standard outdoor plug or an extension cable linking to a domestic plug. This is not permitted because of fire regulations regarding wiring, earthing rods and voltage restrictions; it poses a serious fire risk to standard 13 amp sockets and there is a real danger that the body of the vehicle could become live.
