Weybourne Village North Norfolk
Weybourne is a fishing resort situated in the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village straddles the A149 coast road and is three miles west of Sheringham and close to the historic market town of Holt. The village population is less than 600 and consists largely of local Norfolk residents, retirees and visitors who come to enjoy delightful old brick and flint cottage rentals, camping or caravanning, or to enjoy a Hotel or Bed & Breakfast holiday.
Weybourne is mentioned in the Domesday book and in that survey it is called Wabrunna. There are remains of an old Augustinian priory founded around 1200 AD on the site of a simpler Saxon church. Since this village is a designated conservation area, there are many fine examples of Norfolk brick and flint cottages to see dating from the 17th century, through to modern replicas.
The village is surrounded by well-ordered arable fields, woodland and heathland. The area is excellent for walking, enjoying the countryside and coast. There are opportunities to see wildlife, sea-fishing on Weybourne Beach and bird-watching are very popular.
