Romantic holiday flat for two with fabulous view towards the sea in Burnham Overy Staithe

Overy StaitheWe had a week’s holiday on the North Norfolk coast and stayed at Mays Way flat which we rented through Norfolk Hideaways. We had a great time. The flat is extremely well furnished and tucked away in the attic space above a big garage so unlike many flats you do not have to worry about making too much noise and disturbing the people underneath.
The main attraction of this flat is the fully extending Dormer window with a view overlooking the creek, it is not easy to find a holiday letting with any sort of view out to sea in Overy Staithe but this one is pretty good. We took our binoculars and spent many happy hours just looking at the view.

The apartment was situated in the Fishers estate and Harry and Jo who own it were the ideal hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Sunbeds were available when the sun was out and even complimentary kayaks and life jackets if you fancied a paddle on the creek.

The owners also have other apartments here; there is Fishers Lodge, a two bedroom apartment in an extension adjoining the garage that has a connecting door to Mays Way flat so that you can rent both at the same time if required. Both apartments have completely separate access so privacy is always ensured.
Anchors, another apartment that adjoins Fishers  the main house, sleeps four and once again is superbly furnished.

Overy Staithe is a quiet village, it has only one pub and no shops and in many ways to visit here is like going back in time. The locals are extremely friendly and many gather with glasses of wine and sit on the benches in the evening overlooking the Creek.

Wells next the sea is not too far away and has an extremely good seafood restaurant called “The Crab House”, We used the Coast Hopper bus service which runs once an hour so that we could enjoy a couple of drinks as well as some delightful seafood.

To reach the beach you need to walk across the Creek using the coastal path, this route attracts many twitchers and has some magnificent views but it is a one and half miles walk which takes about half an hour but once you arrive on the beautiful almost deserted enormous sandy beach you will find it’s worth the walk

Should you decide to stay in any of these accomodations and have contacted Norfolk Hideaways mention Dot and Dave, we may get a free plate of cockles next time we visit.
