Overstrand is an attractive village on the North Norfolk coast, which features a steep ramp that leads down to a sandy beach, great for beach games or a swim. Take one of our favourite walks along the beach to Cromer and then return as the tide is coming in on the path along the cliff top, passing the lighthouse on the way. The village has a variety of shops and pubs, is close to Cromer with its award winning Pier, cinema and other facilities. The area is great for exploring the north and east coast beaches, walking the cliff path, various inland cycle routes and walks, and for visiting the nearby historic houses of Felbrigg and Blickling Hall both run by the National Trust. Overstrand is an oasis of calm in a busy world but the delights of Cromer and Norwich are only a short drive away if you are in need of some retail therapy.


Very nice place to stay.

Miss Rosie Hewitt,

We enjoyed a lovely stay at Secret Sands even though it has been zero degrees most days! The owner has thought of everything - very homely!

Sophie &Luke,

Beautiful flat in a lovely village. We enjoyed the Cliff Top Cafe and the pub plus the walk to Cromer and back. The Red Lion Hotel bar is very welcoming and the Cliftonville Hotel serves a lovely meal.

Mr & Mrs Norris,

Superbly equipped with all you could wish for. Furnishings are of very high quality and the apartment is very spacious. WiFi is excellent. Very good showerwith plenty of hot water

Mr David Playford,

We had a lovely stay here and the weather was excellent all week. We certainly managed to use our National Trust card frequently in this area! Thank you for the welcome pack - great to showcase local produce. Flat had everything we needed and was very comfortable.

Mr & Mrs Playford,

A lovely flat, very comfortable. Overstrand is a good base for seeing North Norfolk by bus and road. Thank you for the welcome pack, very nice. Good food and drink at the local hostelries.

Mr & Mrs Mann,

We have enjoyed our visit to Overstrand in your very comfortable accommodation and appreciated the welcome pack. Nicely situated for eating out close by. The Sea Marge is very good.

Very relaxing, just what was needed. Great house and felt like home.

Mr & Mrs Pattison,

We had a delightful stay in Overstrand, peppered with day trips in the vicinity. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful flat.

The Milner Party,

We've had the most amazing holiday in Overstrand, our first but certainly not our last! What a beautiful village and the lovely sandy beach right on our doorstep. Fresh crab and lobster at the Crab Pot Shed was a massive bonus. Secret Sands is tastefully done but, but is also very homely. Like previous comments, so many thoughtful touches. All in all, we've had a lovely, relaxing stay - it's a shame to leave! Many thanks for sharing your holiday home!

Carla & Simon,

Great flat in a wonderful location. Owners have added so many thoughtful touches. Very comfortable place to stay - we have had a lovely few days!

The Stein Party,

A lovely flat in a prime location, such a pity that the weather where has been so poor while the rest of the country has been enjoying a heat wave. It's been a long time since we've visited Overstrand so have returned to old favourites such as Blickling and Felbrigg, and also enjoyed Sandringham for the first time.

Mr & Mrs Hofmann,

First guests! Wonderful weather for a great week revisiting Norfolk after a long time. Flat very well-suited - comfortable and has everything you need. Well situated for a peaceful stay. Enjoyed visiting beach (so near), fresh crab, Cromer and further afield. Felbrigg Hall well worth a visit and Wells-next-the-Sea. All in all a lovely week. Welcome hamper the best stocked of any rental we've had. Many thanks for arranging to et TV reception/tuning sorted out. Owner very approachable and helpful.

Mr & Mrs Lees,
