A picturesque fishing and sailing harbour with multiple winding tidal creeks and salt marshes stretching from the harbour side and leading to sand dunes: the biggest known as Gun Hill. From Burnham Overy Staithe you can take a scenic walk to Gun Hill which takes about half an hour. In the summer there is lovely wildlife to be spotted including wading birds and beautiful butterflies. A gap in the dunes, locally known as Burnham Harbour, opens up and there are miles of golden sandy beaches stretching out towards Holkham and Wells to be admired. During the summer there is a ferry out to the nature reserve of Scolt Head Island which is a lovely trip for bird watchers and seal spotters.


An area of outstanding natural beauty, the village is a large hamlet and a great destination for your stay. The views across the harbour are lovely whatever time of year you decide to visit. There is a great little gastro pub in the centre of the village called The Hero (in honour of Admiral Lord Nelson) which has a great menu of tasty dishes. Also, in the centre of the village there is a large playing field with hard tennis courts and basketball area and a children’s playground. Just outside the village is the noticeable landmark of the stunning six-storey Burnham Overy Windmill and neighbouring watermill, although neither are open to the public, they stand proud on the edge of the village, a beautiful sight when the sun catches the sails against Norfolk's big blue skies. In June Burnham Overy Staithe hosts the popular Norfolk Superhero Challenge, a quadraphonic event where teams of 2 work together to swim, kayak, cycle and run across the beaches and through the creeks. A lovely charity event to spectate. To pop to one of the other coastal villages you can catch the Coasthopper Bus which runs along the coast through many of the delightful villages and seaside towns - a great green way to explore the coast and without the worry of where to park!


Part of Burnham Overy was the original port for The Burnhams and set on the river Burn. Trading ships once reached the village by the river until the end of the Middle Ages when the river silted up and along with it the commercial trade. Until the end of the First World War the trading ships used the Staithe. This made a distinction between the two villages Burnham Overy Town and Burnham Overy Staithe that exist a mile apart from one another today. The most notable resident of Burnham Overy Staithe is Richard Woodget who resided at one of our cottages Flagstaff East/West and was the captain of the Cutty Sark. Horatio, Admiral Lord Nelson according to letters learned to row and sail a dinghy at Burnham Overy Staithe at the age of 10 just two years before joining the Navy.


A great central location on the north Norfolk Coast right on the coastal path ideal for popping on your walking books and walking for about 30 minutes to reach the glorious wide open beach. If you are looking for family days out there are the beaches of Wells and Brancaster where you can park nearby and reach the beaches within a few steps.

We had an enjoyable stay at Pangur's Piece. The house, on arrival, was warm and welcoming.Kitchen was well equipped and beds comfortable.The garden was a bonus when the sun shone.Property thoroughly recommended. Hearing a cuckoo early one morning. Walking around the staithe.

The Grainger 's, 27th of May 2024

A wonderful property, spotless, well appointed and very well looked after. One incredibly minor point, it's quite easy for a dog to get into gardens either side, but that is as much our issue than the property. Other than that, just perfect in every way. Thanks for having us!

The Finch's, 11th of April 2024

We love Pangur’s Piece and have stayed there many times. Walking down to the creek and walking to Holkham beach.

The Hill's, 19th of February 2024

This was the perfect place for our Christmas stay, thank you! We had our toddler with us and she loved having the freedom to walk around downstairs. A lovely, well equipped kitchen to cook in and such a cosy lounge to get the fire going and settle down for a relaxing evening. We didn’t get to the games but we did notice them in the cupboard. The cottage is in a fantastic location, we made it to the beach four days in a row and also had a lovely meal at The Hero on Christmas Eve. Thank you so much for the Christmas decorating, it added such a special touch.

The Taylor Patel's, 8th of January 2024

best house ever, we all love it. and love Burnham OveryStaithe as well. nothing better for a family holiday with the big skies and countless walks and places to visit.

The Illingworth's, 20th of October 2023

Wonderful stay at a beautiful place.
We chose Pangur's for our annual family holiday, as we liked the look of the separate living spaces. It was perfect for us!
The doggies loved the garden and the location, so close to the harbour and walks along the bund.
It was very well equipped and has a lovely charm that makes it so cosy.
Can't wait to come back next year!

The Gilman's, 22nd of September 2023

As a family of four we thoroughly enjoyed staying at Pangur's Piece and didn't want to leave. It is such a well-designed and decorated, spacious and comfortable house - it was ideal for us! We enjoyed close proximity to the playing fields, the creake, The Hero pub, Holkham beach and love this part of North Norfolk. Easy access to the Holkham beach to swim in the sea and playing fields. It was easy for children to regularly play football, basketball and tennis.

The Higginson's, 24th of August 2023

It was better than we expected. It was roomy and had an excellent garden. I knew the position was fabulous anyway. Everything was comfortable, the lounge cosy with lovely thick curtains to keep out the sea winds and the bedrooms comfy too! The kitchen was pretty well equipped and a great communal space. The dogs appreciated the lobby space. It had a very homely feel -easy to holiday in. A great week in a lovely cottage, thank you.

Better than Expected - New sofas and additional interior touches were lovely. We like the lovely open plan kitchen and dining room and the real fire.
We love our stays at Pangurs, especially as it is dog friendly. We have spent ten wonderful Christmas’s there and will hopefully look forward to many more.

A charming cottage that is tastefully decorated with comfortable furniture. Plenty of space downstairs to accommodate dogs and they approved of the underfloor heating! The cottage is well positioned for a walk out on the coastal path to a beautiful beach. The coastal bus stop and Hero pub also a very short walk away. Parking outside the cottage was always possible.

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.
