A very popular rural village, South Creake has a pretty village green through which the River Burn runs.

South Creake

The Ostrich pub has recently undergone a huge refurbishment and now provides not only an intimate village pub but also an outstanding restaurant. There is a homegrown fruit and vegetable stall, a children’s play area, tennis courts and fishing lakes.

The village has a vibrant community and the busy village hall is home to many events.

South Creake is about five miles from the village of Burnham Market which is located close to the mouth of the River Burn, believed to be the source of its name, the village has long been associated with naval hero Admiral Horatio Nelson, who lived at nearby Burnham Thorpe.

A refined elegance permeates every aspect of village life, from the traditional homewares found at Uttings, the locals ‘go-to’ for household essentials, to sampling tasty treats at the Tuscan Farm Shop, Humble Pie Deli or Gurneys Fish Shop – this is a place to savour the finer things. For amenities, Burnham Market Stores is well-stocked and The Post Office, Burnham Motors Garage - for mechanical needs - and the petrol station are all also very useful. Eating out is also a joy with award winning Socius serving a British-inspired tapas menu on the edge of Foundry Place, and NoTwenty9’s bar, restaurant and courtyard provides a relaxed spot to wine and dine on warm summer’s nights.

Fakenham and Wells-next-the-Sea both have primary and secondary schools.

South Creake is perfectly positioned for the beautiful north Norfolk coast.
