The Village of Weybourne in Norfolk

Weybourne Norfolk Holidays

A visitors guide to the coastal village of Weybourne located on the North Norfolk Coast. For those approaching Weybourne from Holt the view from the top of the hill looking down onto this Norfolk village is one of the loveliest vistas in Norfolk. 

The village of Weybourne is surrounded by well ordered arable fields and heathland and is a good area for those wishing to explore North Norfolk whilst staying in a quiet village location.

Weybourne beach is a pebble beach frequented by anglers who make the most of the deep waters here for which Weybourne has been famous for since the days of the Spanish Armarda. For those wishing to paddle or swim the sandier beaches of Sheringham are just 3 miles down the coast.

Up the hill in the village is the North Norfolk Steam Railway which links Weybourne with Sheringham and the inland Georgian town of Holt.  On the outskirts of the village is The 'Muckleburgh Collection' with its  working tanks and other military exhibits. The collection is one of Britainís largest privately owned collections of working military vehicles and equipment

The village benefits from a good friendly inn The Ship, the Maltings Hotel and restaurant and a village shop and tea room where you can get basic food supplies for your holiday vacation.

At nearby Upper Sheringham is Sheringham Park a magnificent combination of natural landscape and human design. Designed by Humphrey Repton in the 19th centuryfor Abbot Upcher, who sadly died before the park was completed.  However, his descendants filled the woods opposite the house with hundreds of rhododendrons and azaleas that flower spectacularly each spring. Now managed by the National Trust.

North Norfolk is a birdwatchers paradise and a prime site for twitching. There are nearby sanctuaries at Holme, Titchwell, Scolt Head, Blakeney and Cley. 

Weybourne is pronouced Webbon, and is derived from an old English word meaning felon's stream.

  Try the Baron Art shop, just down the road at Kelling where you can combine afternoon tea with looking at books and works of art.

A priory stood here in the 12th century, some of its ruins still survive in the grounds of the 15th century church of All Saints.
