Possibly one of the prettiest villages in North Norfolk, this Georgian village is within easy access to the North Norfolk Coast, still with a quaint feel, with many trendy shops. The village retains a ‘step back in time’ feel with leafy green trees and picturesque village green. Burnham Market has a traditional post office, book shop and hardware shop as well as beautiful boutiques and lifestyle shops, from the butchers and baker to fine dining and deli’s. There’s a superb fishmonger Gurneys with locally caught seafood including Brancaster mussels and Cromer crab - be sure to try the amazing fresh fishcakes. It’s a lovely village to visit to peruse the shops or even for a bite to eat in one of the restaurants. There are a lot of eateries to choose from… The Hoste for fine dining or afternoon tea, No Twenty9, The Nelson, award-winning Socius, Burnham Tearoom, or Tilly’s Cafe, there’s something to suit every taste. There is also a children’s play park, hard tennis courts and two parish churches one at each end of the village. If in need of a little pampering why not book a treatment or two at The Hoste Beauty Spa.There is also a dog groomer so you can have the best pampered pooch in the village.


With a scenic ride to the coast, you can enjoy lazy days on the beaches of Brancaster or Wells. Alternatively pull on your walking boots and investigate diverse coastal path walks, taking in all the birds and wildlife. Leave the car behind and pop on the Coastal Hopper bus and do a tour from Wells and The Burnhams to Norfolk's west coast. Don't forget to visit Holkham which not only has a superb beach, but majestic Holkham Hall which is well worth a visit: hire a boat on the lake, hop on a bike to explore the woodlands, test your bravery on the rope course, play in the woodland play park, take in the breathtaking rooms and art in the main house or simply enjoy tea and cake in the courtyard cafe. If big houses are your thing there are many others to visit with Houghton Hall and its fantastic sculpture collection, the house and grounds of Royal Sandringham to name a few! Get on the water, there are many activities from kite and windsurfing in Hunstanton, sailing in Brancaster Staithe, seal and boat trips from Brancaster and Wells, or take a beautiful trip on The Coastal Exploration Company and learn about the wildlife, trading and smuggling in the salt marshes or along the coast.

This is a lovely, clean, well equipped bungalow in a quiet cul de sac, and not far from the shops. We really enjoyed our time here. Watching the geese fly over the property every day.

The Childerly's, 4th of October 2023

A comfortable, spacious and well presented bungalow.Very conveniently located at end of village and central for the north Norfolk coast.The gift bag (especially the wine) was much appreciated. Our visit to Walsingham Shrine and Abbey grounds was very interesting. Wells next the Sea is a lovely village with many shops and cafes.The Sea henge exhibition in Kings Lynn is well worth visiting.

The Horne's, 24th of August 2023

Spacious and well equipped holiday house. Useful outbuilding for extra storage. Plenty of space in the kitchen to store groceries and a large American style fridge freezer. Lovely garden with furniture. 5 minute walk to a convenience store and a bit longer to Burnham Market for more shops. A good playground close by with a football field.Very comprehensive information about the house - easy to understand and photos to help. Also, written respectfully, valuing the guests. Good location to visit the beach and other places of interest within 20 mins drive.

Lovely, clean, very comfortable bungalow. Everything you need is there, could even make Christmas dinner if wanted to, plenty of utensils pots and pans etc. lovely garden for dogs. Close to all the best beaches. Our dogs loved it.

The Bennet's, 23rd of August 2023

Lovely bungalow in a quiet location but within easy walking distance of Burnham Market. An easy lay out, perfect for our needs as grandparents of a 1 year old and a small dog in tow. Gorgeous baby room for Wilf and room for his travel cot which we hired from Sowerbys. We enjoyed playing cards and games in the conservatory. The garden was lovely too for breakfast and very private. Relaxing place to come home to after a grand day out. We shall book again. We know this area very well so it was great to visit our favourite beaches, Brancaster, Wells and Holkham. The dog has never gone back so fit …she loves running after a ball on the beach. Baby Wilf enjoyed his days out too. Our son-in-law has never visited the county of Norfolk before and thought it was amazing.

the Chandler's, 8th of August 2023

A great stay in a lovely cottage, thank you.

The Watt's, 11th of May 2023

Beds really comfortable and the welcome hamper a nice touch will definitely be back

The Josephs, 5th of May 2023

Very practical home.
Good instructions and clean throughout.

The Smiths, 5th of May 2023

A very comfortable, well-equipped and clean property in a very convenient location - we would definitely use it again if/when we return to North Norfolk. With three generations, including baby of 9 months, and two dogs we tested it thoroughly and really appreciated the thought that had gone into planning and maintaining it so well. We had everything we needed and it was great to be able to let the dogs outside and know that they were safe. Hiring a beach hut at Wells😃, great fun! Walking at Brancaster beach and on Sandringham Estate. First time using Sowerbys. Very impressed by the service provided - helpful and friendly. Thank you also for letting us know about Happy Huts!.

The Miller's, 24th of April 2023

Harpers was an ideal property for us. The bungalow is very clean, roomy and the garden secure for our two dogs. We had a lovely welcome bag of goodies. Lots of little extras like tissues, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel were appreciated, thank you. Lots of jigsaws, dvds' games and books in the bungalow. Kitchen is well equipped. Sofas and bed very comfortable. Ideally located for easy access to the coast and just a five minute walk into the Main Street. We are looking forward to coming again. Visiting nearby coastal villages and beaches. Lots of walking along the Coastal Path with the dogs.
Loved this property and we will return. We prefer Friday change overs to get a full weekend away but to stay here we will compromise.

The Harper's, 28th of March 2023

As always , a wonderful week on the North Norfolk Coast.Harpers is in an ideal location . It is spotlessly clean , well maintained and well equipped. No issues at all. Highlights were tea and cake at the Thornham Deli after a walk .

The Smith's, 13th of March 2023

A lovely, cosy home for us to relax in after chilly walks along the coastal path. We loved the conservatory for breakfast and appreciate how well the whole house is equipped.

The Mepsted's, 13th of December 2022

A very comfortable and impeccably clean place to stay, and so ideally situated in Burnham Market. It is my second visit to Harpers and find it excellent. Thank you very much for the generous welcome hamper! Very roomy and well stocked with everything that could be needed. Good to have space for parking in the drive, and a private garden. The bed was so lovely and comfortable. I will love to stay at Harpers again.

Brenda, 17th of October 2022

We loved our stay at Harpers Cottage. The cottage itself is lovely and the pictures don’t do it justice. Nicely decorated, clean and a well equipped kitchen. Perfectly placed to explore the local beaches and forests with the dogs. We will certainly be back again. Loved being so close to the beautiful dog friendly beaches. Holkham and Wells Beaches are lovely and we had a great time strolling along the beach and playing in the dunes (the dogs!)

Claire & Iris, 3rd of October 2022

We were very pleased with the property. The location was perfect quiet but only a few minutes walk to the centre of the village. The cottage was very well equipped with everything you could need. Weather was far better than expected. Thank you.

The Gulliver's, 18th of September 2021

The house was very clean and had a very well equipped kitchen and the beds were extremely comfortable - these are always key things when you are away from home!The location was perfect being quiet but within easy walking distance to the village - we had two young people in our party and it was really easy for them to wander about.

Merilyn , 21st of February 2020

Harpers is open plan this enabled our toddler grandsons to wander around to their hearts content which we liked. Also the kitchen was very well-equipped. Nice location within walking distance to village. All in all this was an ideal holiday let for a family with young children.

Pascual Party, 25th of October 2019

Love Harpers! Its was Better than Expected. 10 out of 10 for cleanliness and 10 out of 10 for the garden. The cleanliness, the facilities, its situation to town, the quietness, everything!

faulks, 18th of July 2019

Like it's peaceful location and general welcoming atmosphere, we have stayed here before and would again!

Mrs Fisher, 25th of May 2019

Very well equipped, good instruction books, very easy to stay in. We rent cottages in the UK at least once a month, I can honestly say that no one has ever given the level of service offered by Sowerbys, previously I've had to deal with agents who quite frankly went to the non-existent British Rail school of custome service, everyone here went the extra mile, thank you

Jenny Jenkinson, 28th of January 2019

Clean, comfortable, quiet location.

The Jefferys, 18th of November 2018

George Party, 10th of November 2017

Third stay at Harpers. We will return next year

The Jeffreys, 21st of July 2017

Loved the location, handy for shops but still quiet and peaceful. Perfectly set out and equipped. Lots of different wildlife too, which I enjoy - birds, butterflies, etc. The trees and shrubs at the back of the garden were a favourite.

We have booked the same property again for May because we had such a good time.

Great location and well equipped. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend to others and would like to return ourselves!

A beautifully equipped, bright and sunny and easy to run holiday home. We (the grandparents and dog) stayed at Harpers whilst the rest of the family lived in another rental nearby - a perfect arrangement!

The Henshilwoods, 8th of May 2015

Buckle, February 2015: "Warm, convenient for village and coast, thoughtfully kitted out accommodation"

Harrison, November 2014: "Convenient position to village. For us it is 'home from home'. We like everything

Buckle, 27th of February 2015

The standard and amount of fittings and equipment was far higher than experienced in other properties. The garden was completely enclosed for our cocker spaniel.

Fisher, 14th of October 2014

The bungalow was very well equipped and the information concerning appliances etc, was incredibly informative and easy to understand. Parking was a delight and the bungalow only a stones throw from the village. We loved it and would certainly return.

Mr & Mrs Morley, 19th of September 2014

Conservatory obviously a great asset.

Jackson, 12th of September 2014

Equipment within the bungalow and information supplied was the BEST I have ever experienced

Moverley, 23rd of May 2014

We found the bungalow very comfortable and ideally situated especially with the off road parking. Having two bathrooms and the conservatory makes it ideal.

The Kentons, 28th of March 2014

Clean, unfussy and modern/contemporary yet homely.

Very well equipped and had everything you could need.

Good quality and a lovely holiday home.

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.
