Bircham Holiday Cottages

The village of Bircham lies on the border of the Sandringham Estate, about 7 miles from the north Norfolk coast and comprises of three parishes:- Great Bircham, Bircham Tofts and Bircham Newton. Great Bircham has an excellent village shop with a deli and a cafe, a church, St Mary's and the Kings Head Hotel with award winning restaurant. There is also a fully restored windmill, considered to be the only working windmill in this part of the county, where visitors can climb five floors up to the fan stage and on windy days, can see the sails and milling machinery turning and admire the view. The mill also has a bakery (delicious bread!), tea room, gift shop, small childrens' farm and cycle hire centre. Bircham Newton has a small, private trout fishing lake and the Church of All Saints, one of the smallest in the county, with no porch, few windows and Victorian box pews. Nelson's daughter Horatia married Philip Ward, who was the rector and brought up a large family at Church Farm. Bircham Tofts is recorded in the Domesday book as Stoftstan, referring to its stony soil and merged with Bircham Newton in 1719. The closest train station is at King's Lynn providing direct rail links to Cambridge and London.Bircham windmill
