Beldings Cottage


The Tower Windmill, Burnham Overy Staithe

Beldings Cottage is a refurbished and extended Norfolk cottage which was originally part of the Holkham estate, dating back to the late 1700s. An extension has created a garden room, a kitchen/breakfast room and a third upstairs bedroom. It has an enclosed patio garden with a shingled drive area, and is under a mile away from Burnham Market and the coast at Burnham Overy Staithe – both of which can be reached on foot.
