The village of Weybourne straddles the A149 coastal road, three miles north east of Holt, a Georgian market town popular for its boutiques and cafes. Known for its steep shingle beach and surrounded by heathland and open countryside, Weybourne is the ideal place for walkers, artists and wildlife lovers. There are a number of local facilities including a small supermarket, restaurant and hotel as well as the unique Muckleburgh Collection (one of the UK’s finest military collections) making it popular with residents and visitors alike.
Property types vary from generously sized two-to-three-bedroom bungalows and Victorian semi’s to modernised eye-catching cottages. There is also a good choice of fine substantial family homes, some just a short distance from the beach.
What you’ll get for your money
In Weybourne, the price of an average three-bedroom bungalow starts from around £350,000. Smaller two-bedroom cottages, often favoured as holiday residences, start from around £260,000, whilst modernised, larger 3-to-4-bedroom homes achieve in excess of £395,000. Close proximity to the beach commands a premium as you would expect. Rental property is scarce in Weybourne, as it is in many of the coastal villages, but you could expect to achieve more than £1,000 per calendar month for a typical 3-bedroom family home.
What else can you expect from Weybourne?
For a small village, Weybourne is steeped in history, with stories of smuggling, the ruins of an Augustinian priory and its nationally important secretive camp during World War II. The former military camp is now the site of the Muckleburgh visitor attraction. North Norfolk’s Poppyline steam railway is another of Weybourne’s charms, running through the village between Holt and Sheringham where a direct service to Norwich can be boarded, offering links to London. The nostalgic line hosts a number of annual events such as the well attended 1940s weekend where Weybourne station opens up the NAAFI to serve the hungry passengers their wartime rations. Other leisure pursuits to be enjoyed locally include horse riding, bowls, sea fishing and golf.
