An area of outstanding natural beauty – beaches, birds, boats and more!
Salthouse is an historic village on the North Norfolk coast. It is well positioned for exploring all the many delights that North Norfolk has to offer. The village overlooks the edge of the salt marshes and is next to Cley Nature Reserve. The Georgian market town of Holt is 4 miles, Blakeney 2 miles and Sheringham 5 miles. The coffee man at Salthouse beach – don’t miss him!
Salthouse Church is impressive, a real gem, please do visit and support it. It is also the hub of the annual Contemporary Arts Festival. Read more about Salthouse Church and the history of Salthouse village.
No visit to Salthouse would be complete without a visit to Cookie’s! Cookies Crab Shop has been selling quality shellfish for over 3 generations and is a stone’s throw from Corner Cottage.
More than just a shellfish shop, Cookie’s also offers platters, salads, sandwiches plus hot and cold drinks – all which may be taken away or eaten inside or eaten in the garden overlooking the salt marshes. Cookie’s is open most days of the year except Christmas day! From 9am to 7pm, 7 days a week for most of the year. From 10am to 4pm, 7 days a week in the winter. However, on some cold, wet winter weekdays when it seems like there is nobody around for miles, they may close earlier than this – it is best to pop in or phone ahead on days like this to avoid disappointment.

The Old Post Office shop is next door to Corner Cottage. Good stocks of Norfolk produce, including Salthouse beef, bacon and more. June also sells milk, bread, butter, eggs, and much more.
There is also a fantastic pub, the Dun Cow, and a fish and chip van visits the village on Friday nights.
