Perched 43m above sea level on a hill with views of the sea, bordered by farm fields and long established woodland, criss-crossed by “Quiet Lanes” and well trodden footpaths, basking in the fresh sea air from the North Norfolk coast, Knapton is a little piece of heaven tucked away in an designated area of outstanding beauty.
We’re just three miles from the market town of North Walsham with it’s railway station and shops, eight miles from the seaside resort of Cromer with it’s pier, theatre and famous crab industry and twenty miles from Norwich.
And our sleepy little village is just a mile or two from the gorgeous sandy beaches at Mundesley, Trimingham, Overstrand, Bacton and Walcott…
The tall proud cliffs add to the stunning views for walkers and beach combers alike.
But to stay safe, everyone should respect the cliffs and not try to climb them as this part of the coast has recently experienced some dramatic cliff slides
A farming community, our farmers contribute in lots of ways to our village life
