Gillies is an award winning detached coastal house designed by a local architect, situated in a prime position in Burnham Overy Staithe with stunning marsh, creek and sea views.

Upstairs is perfect for three couples with three lovely en-suite bedrooms, with a further two twin bedrooms and a shower room on the ground floor. There is a large enclosed garden with ample car and boat parking and access to the harbour for sailing or a 30 minute walk along the coastal path out to the beautiful unspoilt sandy beach. Gillies is unrivalled for bird-watching with many rare species seen from the house. Within 4 minutes walking distance is The Hero gastro pub.

Guest Reviews

Better than Expected A lot of space, extremely well equipped and larger garden than expected. 10 out of 10 for cleanliness We loved the space and lay-out, location and personal details.

Pelly - 07/06/2018

Generally very nice property, well maintained and very comfortable. Well-equipped kitchen, good bathrooms, plenty of hot water, views of creek, location. Would stay again.

The Scaddings - 11/05/2018

Gillies is a fantastic property for a large family, everyone can have space.

Thorp Party - 22/12/2017

Just to confirm that we have now vacated "Gillies" after a wonderful stay, the house was lovely & set within a fantastic location.

The Bedini's - 20/03/2017

Burnham Overy Staithe

Location

A pretty coastal village with a busy harbour which used to be predominantly a fishing village, but is now a very popular place for sailors, walkers and bird-watchers, with the area being designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. There is an excellent local gastro-pub called The Hero which re-opened after extensive refurbishment and has quickly gained a great reputation.

During the summer there is a ferry out to the nature reserve of Scolt Head Island, a bird and seal sanctuary. For the more energetic it takes about 30 minutes to walk along the coastal footpath across the marshes out to the vast expanse of sandy beach which is quite often deserted. The large black Burnham Overy windmill dominates the skyline for miles around and on the outskirts of village there is a fine collection of 18th century mill-buildings next to the river Burn.
