Weybourne is a pretty, old, brick and flint fishing village situated in the North Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is three miles from Sheringham and close to the Georgian market town of Holt. Surrounded by fields, woodland and heathland, the area is excellent for walking and enjoying the coast and the countryside. There are opportunities for bird watching, to see wildlife and to go sea-fishing off Weybourne beach. The village is well known for the Muckleburgh Military Collection and the Edwardian train station, which is a stopping point for Poppyline steam trains that run between Sheringham and Holt throughout the year. In the village is the ever popular Ship Inn serving excellent food using local produce and the very well stocked village shop. The Coasthopper bus service runs through the village all year round traveling between Kings Lynn and Cromer.
Just a few miles away is the popular North Norfolk town of Holt with its art and antiques galleries, independent boutiques and gift shops and grocery stores selling locally produce. There are many cafes, pubs and restaurants serving great food. Holt Country Park is worth visiting if you enjoy walking.
Less than 5 miles away along the coast is Cley. A pretty brick and flint village with its own windmill, art gallery, pottery, a fantastic deli, bakery and tea room. Just outside the village is the Norfolk Wildlife Trust visitor centre and Cley Marshes where you can sit in the cafe and enjoy the views across the marshes or birdwatch.
A little further along the coast is Blakeney with its great pubs, cafes, restaurants and shops. The walk from Blakeney to Cley along the coast path is recommended. Just before Blakeney you will find Wiveton Hall with its cafe and shop selling strawberries and other local produce. Heading along the coast, and less than 20 minutes drive from Weybourne is Morston and the Michelin starred Morston Hall hotel and restaurant. Seal trips to Blakeney Point leave from Morston.
Heading along the coast in the other direction is Sheringham. There is plenty to do in Sheringham including Splash tropical indoor pool with water slides and a wave machine. Sheringham has its own carnivals and festivals all year round including the famous Crab and Lobster Festival and Sheringham Carnival. It also has a large traditional market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Further along the coast from Sheringham is the traditional seaside town of Cromer. It has an award winning pier, beautiful sandy beaches with rockpools, cliffs and many independent places to eat in the town. There is an excellent museum telling the maritime history of the town and an impressive church where you can climb up the tower for great views. A visit to Amazona Zoo is recommended.
The National Trust properties at Sheringham Park, Felbrigg Hall and Blicking Hall are a short drive away and recommended.
