Skylark Burnham Overy Staithe

Sleeps 8, from £940 to £1845 per week

Skylark is a spacious detached house quietly located within a couple of minutes walk from the sea in the highly sought after coastal village of Burnham Overy Staithe. Its owners have used their years of experience renting holiday cottages to produce their own ultimate second home, tastefully furnishing it in a coastal contemporary style and thoughtfully equipping it. This is an ideal holiday home for families and friends with a sociable kitchen/dining area and a light and airy sitting room with glass doors opening into the large lawned garden, with plenty of parking at the front for cars and boats. The spacious downstairs bedroom and absence of steps on the ground floor, makes Skylark a suitable place to stay for less able guests.

Guest Reviews

What a wonderful home from home Skylark has been for our family. Loads of room for everyone easy to walk to the pub and the beach. Perfect!

- 21/09/2018

We have stayed in many houses in Norfolk over the years and this is our favourite. Comfortable house, big and sunny garden and in Burnham Overy Staithe to boot.

- 17/08/2018

Four years now since our first stay at Skylark and its even better than we remembered. A very comfortable family home with all the amenities you need.
We’ve had another perfect holiday cycling to the beach and through the forest and around the Holkham Estate. Swimming in the sea, boating in the staithe and kiting in the dunes. The garage is particularly useful for storing bikes and sandy paraphernalia. Cant wait to come back!

- 10/08/2018

Skylark has surpassed our expectations. Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely comfortable well equipped house. We have erally enjoyed our week in Norfolk – such happy memories.

Third time of staying at Skylark. All the family together. The Grandchildren loved the large garden. Great weather so we could spend a lot of time on the beach and go biking etc. We also enjoyed the inside/outside aspect of the house. We will be back next year!

- 21/07/2017

Very priveleged to be the first guests at Skylark. A wonderful house and location.

Wishing everyone many happy holidays here in the future.

Ed, Clare, Amelia Freddie and Flo - 21/11/2014

A lovely house and fantastic garden. Everything is so homely and welcoming. The kitchen is so well equipped and the wood burner very efficient- lights and burns a treat.

The everhot is a pleasure to cook on and would consider one in the future.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and watching the geese flying home.
Would recommend the HERO for dinner- it is what a pub should be.

The only thing we could not get to work was the heating.

Garner Kate, Paul and Harry - 01/11/2014

What a lovely house. Thoroughly enjoyed our week in B.O.S. Very comfortable beds as well as great wi fi.

Would definitely stay again.

The Aldrich Family - 25/08/2014

We have had a wonderful time. Beautiful house, everything we needed and fantastic weather as well. Many thanks.

The King Family - 22/08/2014

As regular visitors to Norfolk, we have enjoyed this stay. Good sunny weather, nice and quiet location. Lovely to wake in the mornings to the sound of a cuckoo! Thank you.

Roberts Family - 10/05/2014

End of a great week, weather all good apart from final day. Lovely accommodation, very comfortable and quiet. Lots of long walks and good food!

Annie, Debbie & Bob - 02/05/2014

Absolutely gorgeous home - thank you very much for all your thought into the detail you have put into this house. We had an amazing week and will be back next year for sure!

The Morgans - 09/08/2013

What a wonderful home from home - you have thought of everything, even the sunshine! Amazing garden, with delicious raspberries and a perfect base for travelling to Brancaster and Wells. Love all the games and DVDs for the children. Love it! Here's to a lots of happy memories for you all!

Toby, Anna, Izzy, Tommy and Snoop - 19/07/2013

Lovely light and airy holiday house with comfortable beds and almost everything we needed to make this a great family holiday. Highlights included hiring kayaks and exploring various inlets at the dawn high tide, watching egrets, avocets and spoonbills, hiking to Holkham, wild water swimming and spotting nesting birds and lizards in the dunes, kites, beach combing and crabbing and endless sunshine all week!

The Smiths - 05/07/2013

A lovely house which had a warm and welcoming feel to it. The attention to detail and quality of everything was very much appreciated and made it feel a real home from home.

However would have liked a TV which was easier to operate or was it us! A socket to charge shavers would also have been helpful.

Neither of the above spoiled what has been a very pleasant but all to short stay.

andrew & sandra - 25/06/2013

Three generations of the March family met up from all corners - London, Cornwall and Sheffield. Enjoyed the ease of the house and teh lovely front garden which was great for Elfie (2 1/2) to run around to her hearts delight. We did the usual Norfolk activities, beach, biking, walking, crabbing etc. A very cosy holiday home. Thanks a lot.

March Family - 21/06/2013

Warm, welcoming, clean, light and airy. Very well equipped, lovely garden excellent location.

We felt relaxed and at "home" immediately. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely recommend your property to family and friends.

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.
