Burnham Overy Staithe is a small coastal village in one of the most attractive areas of the North Norfolk Coast, close to Burnham Market. Sailors, walkers and birdwatchers all enjoy this area immensely. The coast here is a series of creeks and salt marshes often with paths through to the sandy beaches beyond. Most of the coast is protected by the National Trust and other nature trusts, being in the heart of the designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that covers much of the North Norfolk Coast. The coast path runs through the 10,130 acre Holkham National Nature Reserve with magnificent views inland to Holkham Park. A little fact is that Lord Nelson was born at nearby Burnham Thorpe and is remembered in numerous pub names in the area!
