Happisburgh in Norfolk

Self Catering in Happisburgh Norfolk

The coastal resort of Happisburgh (pronounced Haisbro) is located on the East Coast of Norfolk. The village as in days past is dominated by two features: its red and white candy striped lighthouse and the commanding tower of its church both open to the public.

Miles of unspoilt beaches stretch all the way along this part of the coast. Happisburgh though has seen more than its fair share of coastal erosion over the years with large chunks of cliffs regularly falling into the sea and this has led to the way down to beach from the village is now via a set of steep steal tower steps.  

Alternatively a mile to the south of Happisburgh is 'Cart Gap' with its own car park, where there is easy access to the beach.

The village has Post Office / shop and a friendly pub where it is said that Arthur Conan Doyle stayed and dreamt up the plot for his Sherlock Holmes story 'The Dancing Men' published in 1903.
