The Engine House forms part of a fabulous converted water mill outside the village of Burnham Overy Staithe. The original chimney forms the centrepiece to the house and now houses a log burner. The double height open plan kitchen, dining and reception room is beautifully light and there are lovely views out of the rear windows onto the river, National Trust land and Burnham Norton church in the distance. The exposed timbers throughout are original to the house and were reclaimed from an old ship. The Engine House provides spacious living accommodation for four people and is a super base from which to explore the North Norfolk coast. It is situated midway between Burnham Market and Burnham Overy Staithe and for those who enjoy walking, it is possible to walk to either village.

Burnham Overy Staithe is home to Overy Staithe Sailing Club. There is a comprehensive chandlery on the quayside. The creek is spectacular in all weathers and the walk along the sea bank to the beach is very special. Overy beach is deserted and wildlife is abundant. Miles of sand backed by high sand dunes make it a desolate but incredible place. In season terns nest here on the beach and are protected by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust. The Hero pub and restaurant is a couple of minutes walk from the quayside and provides hearty and wholesome food. The Norfolk Coast path runs through Overy Staithe. The black windmill is a true North Norfolk landmark and dominates the skyline for miles. This is owned by the National Trust.
