Happisburgh

Happisburgh (pronounced Haze-bruh) is a lovely seaside village on the Norfolk coast. Although parts of the village close to the sea have suffered from coastal erosion, it is a charming destination for holidaymakers to this part of North Norfolk.

Visitors can still see many of the village’s ancient thatched flint cottages and historic buildings and perhaps the best way to do this is by following the 1.75 mile Happisburgh Village Trail. Starting from the car park at the end of Beach Road, you can discover the ancient buildings and landmarks that have played a part in the history of the village. For those who have worked up a thirst, the trail ends conveniently at the pub.

Happisburgh lighthouse, a traditional red and white striped structure, was built in 1790 and is East Anglia’s oldest working lighthouse. It is now independently operated by a charitable trust and is well worth visiting on one of the open days that are held throughout the summer. The 15th century St Mary’s church is another destination that should not be missed. From the church tower, visitors can enjoy spectacular views of the countryside and coast. Those who climb the 133 steps on a clear day will be rewarded by views extending as far as 16.5 miles to the cathedral spire in Norwich. It is said that 30 churches can be seen from the tower of St Mary’s.

There are some lovely walks in the area around Happisburgh, both rural and coastal. The beach is an attraction for people of all ages, and in 2010, it became a nationally important archaeological site when excavations uncovered flint tools that are more than 800,000 years old, providing evidence of the earliest human occupation in the UK.

Happisburgh is a great base for exploring the coast and Norfolk Broads to the south. To discover this unspoilt seaside village, search for cottages in Happisburgh today.
