The jewel in Norfolk’s crown has to be its stunning coastline, all 90 miles of it. While big-hitters Wells and Holkham often top best beaches lists, there are plenty more coastal villages offering the perfect combination of expansive sands, epic skies and friendly locals.
Within these villages lie an abundance of unique and charming homes, perfect for offering a slice of the sought-after coastal lifestyle. But opportunities to get your hands on one of these homes are rare.
Here at Sowerbys, we have the pick of the bunch, so we thought we’d showcase the very best. From sensational sea views and bold architecture to characterful chocolate box cottages, our coastline really does have it all.
This is an exquisite 17th century Norfolk flint cottage located just a mile from the coast in the prized village of Wiveton. Being within walking distance of Blakeney and Cley means beaches and nature reserves are right on your doorstep – it’s the perfect romantic getaway. Find out more here.
We love this spacious period cottage with views over the north Norfolk coast. While it retains character features such as open fireplaces, the fittings are bang up to date. With the location just a short walk to Blakeney Quay and the coastal path, there’s no excuse for not getting out and exploring this area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Find out more here.
Coastal homes often boast a dash of luxury, but this one has it in spades. It cleverly blends beachside charm with contemporary, state of the art interiors and sympathetic brink and flint elevations. But what really sets this property apart is the location; perched between rolling, open countryside and the Blakeney coast, it offers the best of Norfolk’s scenery. Find out more here.
Charming chocolate box cottages are synonymous with the Norfolk coast, and this one doesn’t disappoint. Finished with a high end, elegant interior, the quintessential cottage still exudes character and charm. It may be tucked away from the bustle of the beaches, but it offers the ultimate retreat from which to explore the coastline at your own pace. Find out more here.
Opportunities to acquire a home like this don’t come around very often. With a seafront position, the landmark building is arguably the most unique coastal property in Norfolk. It commands breath taking views over the Victorian Pier and out to sea and has recently undergone an extensive renovation project. Who wouldn’t want to live just steps from the beach?

Show stopper is a bit of an understatement for this property. This new home sits in the heart of Blakeney and offers sea views from the second floor. Coupling open plan living with cosy snugs and a top end specification, this is true coastal luxury. Be sure to get out of the house and immersed in the coastal splendour of Blakeney’s narrow streets, hidden alleys and gastronomic hotspots. Find out more here.
This spacious and impressive residence boasts expansive sea views and occupies an enviable position on the Coast Road. Originally built in the 1930s, it has been remodelled and extended to create a beautiful, versatile family home. But the real draw is that location; Trimingham beach has rugged scenery, big skies and endless coastal walks, and is a short distance from Cromer and Sheringham. Find out more here.
"I just wanted to say that we have recently purchased a house via Sowerbys and wanted to comment on the excellent customer service received from Alison Carter. Alison was extremely accommodating from day one; as we live in Hertfordshire and wanted to make only one day trip to view a number of houses initially. After the initial offer was accepted Alison went above and beyond to make sure that exchange happened, liaising between the Vendors, Vendors Solicitors and ourselves. As with all these things something always goes wrong but because of her involvement we believe it was as pain free as possible. Once completion had taken place she helped with meter readings and our keys and an interior designer we have arranged. I know Estate Agents often get bad press and often good news or praise is overlooked or not given so I wanted to say how much we appreciate all Alisonâ€™s efforts."
