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.

Beach Walking, especially on Brancaster Beach where we saw seals.

An excellent cottage, very well equipped with everything you might need. Furnishing we’re just right. The cottage was very comfortable. Kitchen equipment was perfect. Nice outside space. Love north Norfolk, Perfect for access to all places which we love to visit. Burnham market has lots of local amenities- eating at The Hoste & The Lord Nelson. Coffee at No. 29 & Deli. Would definitely book again. Great location, great accommodation. Perfect space for family & dogs.

The Butt's, 8th of August 2023

This is a beautiful house, very well equipped and just a short walk from the village. The fish and chip shop and the shop in the garage next door are an added bonus. The house was very clean and the beds comfortable, would come back.The weather was quite good so there was lots of beach days. We know the area very well so we visited old haunts. The Easter egg hunt from the little train from Wells to Walsingham was exciting for the children.

The Ekin's, 20th of April 2023

Shopping in Holt (Barkers and Larners) and Burnham Market. The hat shop is a must! Lunch with friends at The Lord Nelson in Burnham Thorpe. Walking in the Pine woods followed by lunch at The Victoria.
Very well positioned for the town. The shop at the jet petrol station was very useful . Everything you needed was in the property. Loved the urns!! Great having Netflix’s

The Burt's, 2nd of March 2023

The house was so welcoming and warm - love the decor. It was lovely to have some Christmas decorations up. We felt at home as soon as we arrived. There was everything we needed especially in the kitchen. A wonderful week

The Haigh's, 29th of December 2022

Great clean homely warm cottage with everything you could require. Central location. Great stay thank you

The Goddard's, 14th of October 2022

Warm and comfortable cottage, exceptionally well equipped. All the bits and pieces you need but which are so often missing from holiday properties, such as scissors.and matches. Good supplies of loo roll, spare bin bags and cleaning materials. Burnham Market is a lovely village , and was not overly crowded, which I understand it can be in high summer. Brancaster Beach is amazing and in season a visit to Drove Orchards at Thornham is a must to experience the wonderful range of British apple varieties for sale.

The Swire's, 7th of October 2022

Another enjoyable stay at La Mouette and we hope it won't be the last.

The Payne's, 23rd of September 2022

We loved it. The cottage is even more beautiful than on the photos. Beautifully decorated, well maintained and equipped to the highest standard. It was just perfect. We felt like at home and we will definitely come back. Actually I can’t wait to be back.

The Gebalas', 23rd of December 2019

Gebala Party, 23rd of December 2019

Loved the decoration and lay out... very tasteful, comfortable place to stay and well equipped especially the lovely kitchen. Loved our stay. - we would happily stay again

Janet, 3rd of June 2019

We've stayed in this cottage about seven times so you must be getting things right ! Having constant hot water in a holiday cottage is a big plus. We hope to be back. As an aside, we were happy to see, and eat at, No Twenty 9. Competition for the Hoste can only be a good thing

The Paynes, 6th of October 2018

Very spacious and well appointed. Great location and quiet yet convenient for town.

The Dyments, 20th of July 2018

We just love staying at this property and this was our third time of staying here. Easy to park , dog friendly situated in the lovely Burnham Market . The house is very comfortable and feels like home from home.

The Humphries, 25th of June 2018

Another lovely stay at this gorgeous cottage

Kurau Party, 30th of March 2018

This cottage gives us room to move and has everything we needed.
Possibly the fifth time (lost count) we've stayed here which should speak for itself.
It is very handy for the village and parking is easy.

Photos can not do this property justice, it was bigger and prettier.

A lovely stay in a lovely home.

La Mouette was especially well and thoughtfully equipped, it was very clean and the garden was lovely.

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.
