A small village hamlet which is one of seven Burnham villages named after the river Burn. This pretty little village is a walkers' paradise, placed on the edge of Norton Marsh which has a plethora of birds and wildlife making it an ideal quiet spot for bird watchers and those looking for a retreat. There are no shops, but there is a pretty round tower church and a little car park in Burnham Norton. Go on a superb 40 minute walk through the fields and marshes to the deserted Norton Beach.  During low tide the keen adventurers amongst you may wish to make your way across the waters to Scolt Head Island. The village is on many great little walking routes through The Burnhams, Wells, and Brancaster Coastal Path Walks. You can even leave the car and pop onto the Coastal Hopper bus that passes through the village.


The nearby larger village of Burnham Market is the stylish go to destination with a great selection of independent shops and boutiques ranging from lifestyle and clothing, as well as traditional butcher, hardware store 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. Nearby the village of Docking holds a farmers market on a Wednesday morning, supporting local food producers in the Village Hall. On the 4th Sunday of each month you can pick up supplies from the royal residence of Sandringham Hall as well as many local homemade produce and crafts at the Sandringham Visitors Centre. There are also farm shops in Thornham, Walsingham, Wiveton and Heacham.

Fantastic location to be able to walk from. Hosts are welcoming and the arrival treats were just what we needed.

The Close's, 26th of May 2023

Peaceful and quiet location and a warm welcome from the owner, with the very kind loan of a pair of wellies.Safe for dogs to stay once the drive gate was closed.Nearby wildlife in abundance.

The Barker's, 29th of March 2023

Lovely cozy cottage in perfect location. Really friendly owners who helped us out whenever they could.

Kate & Richard, 21st of October 2022

Very good accommodation, we were able to keep warm, and the cottage had all needed to ensure an excellent stay so late in the season. The surrounding Beaches were close and excellent for our small dog to enjoy. A lovely welcome by Nick the owner, who introduced himself by presenting us with a bottle of wine, very welcoming.

Thomas, 23rd of September 2022

Garden was excellent and the owners delightful. Bottle of fizz was a welcome treat! It gets a 4 for location, peacefulness, owner and the garden! A great dog-friendly cottage.

The Close's, 28th of May 2021

Norton Cottage had plenty of character (old), nice garden and wonderful location which we liked. 10 for the garden we would stay again!

The Pugh's, 16th of April 2021

We likes the cottage, location was very quiet. Comfortable all round and what we would expect from a traditional Norfolk Cottage. The wood burning stove was nice to have in the winter. The site details were up to date as were the pictures and was nice and clean. We wuld stay at Norton Cottage again!

The Stockbridges', 10th of December 2020

The cottage is very pretty, comfortably furnished and in a lovely position on the edge of the marshes. Wonderful walks from the doorstep. Close to Burnham Overy Staithe which is perfect for kayaking, paddle boarding and swimming. We had a very enjoyable week. We had a great time, thank you 😊

The Griffiths , 10th of July 2020

It was carefully chosen to meet our needs. We like most the location, the lay out. Ideal cottage for walkers, dog owners and bird watchers.

The Lamberts', 23rd of August 2019

Everything. the lovely, well equipped cottage, the large garden and its location, its closeness to nature. - We have stayed there for the fourth time now, so we knew what to expect. But that we always come back shows that the cottage is really lovely and well-equipped and we always enjoy our stay there. The owners are very friendly and helpful. we will certainly come back!

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.
