Nestled below Kelling Heath with a beautiful pebble beach, Weybourne is a magical location for a holiday in Norfolk. This ancient village lies on the county’s north coast, a few miles west of Sheringham. On your way to your holiday cottage in Weybourne, you’ll probably pass the area’s best-known landmark, a disused windmill on the edge of the village, which was built in 1850. You’ll also notice a magnificent 15th century church with the ruins of an Augustinian priory in its grounds, and an old watermill on Beach Road. In the heart of Weybourne, pretty streets are lined with distinctive brick and flint cottages and family-run businesses, including BunTeas Tearoom, which is the place to go for a slice of homemade cake and pot of tea. Pop into Weybourne Stores for all your essentials and a variety of local produce. There’s a friendly pub, the Ship Inn, with a lovely garden, Norfolk ales, more than 75 gins and seafood landed at Weybourne Beach. The smoked fish from the renowned Cley Smokehouse is particularly popular.
Seaford Holiday Cottage is a family friendly Visit England 5 Star rated holiday rental on the North Norfolk Coast. Within walking distance of the beach, Seaford sleeps six in three bedrooms. The Master bedroom is en suite and there is also a family bathroom with Whirlpool bath and shower over.

Below the village, the rugged pebble bay is an atmospheric spot for picnicking, fishing or a bracing dip in the sea. Due to the steep shoreline, the beach was a notorious landing for smugglers, who hauled over-proof gin and tobacco ashore. The fields, woods and heathland surrounding Weybourne holiday cottages are crisscrossed by picturesque paths, where you can walk for miles without seeing another soul and spot rare birds in the hedgerows. The North Norfolk Railway – or Poppy Line – runs through Weybourne on its way from Sheringham to Holt, with breathtaking views of the surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Self-catering holidays in Weybourne are a stone’s throw from many of Norfolk’s prettiest towns and fishing villages. A few miles east, Cromer and Sheringham are famous for their fresh seafood and annual crab and lobster festival.
