The Village of Southrepps in Norfolk

Southrepps Norfolk Holidays

A visitor guide to the inland village of Southrepps, located in North Norfolk, just under three miles from the Norfolk Coast. The tower of Southrepps church punctuates the landscape in this part of Norfolk, which is mostly made up of field upon field of green and gold arable crops. A mix of thatched and brick and flint houses decorate this tiny village.

The village is split in two by a large tract of farmland, at the top end of the village there are two village shops and a local village inn.  On the outskirts is a nature reserve of 12.5 hectares with designated way marked walks of two miles and another of four miles.

The Paston Way a long distance footpath of 15.25 miles also runs through this area.

Another tall church tower is the one at the seaside resort of Cromer just five miles from Southrepps.  Here the church of St. Peter and St. Paul measures 160 feet and used to serve as a lighthouse for coastal shipping. Cromer is famous for its  succulent crab and you can still watch the fishermen bring their catches ashore. 

In the summer months the Pavilion Theatre on Cromer Pier hosts the famous Seaside Special, as well as other events. The Royal Cromer Golf Club, set high on the cliffs above the town, has an eighteen hole course with panoramic sea views.
