Hopkins Homes - Beach Vale, NR27
Christened Poppyland by 19th Century writer Clement Scott, and more recently referred to as the village of millionaires, Overstrand is a popular seaside resort on the north Norfolk coast.
Its visitors are drawn to its lovely sandy beach and revitalising countryside walks, while its locals enjoy a fine choice of amenities and a wonderful community spirit. Amongst the facilities in Overstrand are a general store, post office, the White Horse pub and a childrens play area; moments from your front door is an eco-conscious garden centre with its own café.
You will find a wide range of community groups in which to get involved if you wish, from a gardening club to the Womens Institute, bowling to quilting. In addition, a varied schedule of village events marks special occasions throughout the year.
Within walking distance of Beach Vale is the village primary school, The Belfry; older children are catered for at Cromer Academy, which is five minutes drive away. Cromer also offers a further selection of convenient amenities such as a GP surgery, hospital and dental practice, plus several banks and supermarkets.
Of course, as a well loved traditional seaside town, Cromer is brimming with attractions such as the Royal Cromer Golf Club, its striking lighthouse and its traditional pier which hosts top-class entertainment all year round. The town is also home to the Regal Movieplex which shows blockbusters as well as independent and arthouse films.
Overstrand is part of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and so there are plenty of options for getting out and about in the fresh air. Amongst these is a hilly four-mile walk between the village and neighbouring Northrepps.
