Overstrand is located east of Cromer, with the beach lying just past the Royal Cromer Golf Club. The village is genteel, featuring three significant buildings by Sir Edwin Lutyens – The Pleasaunce, Overstrand Hall and the Methodist Church. Affectionately known as “the village of millionnaires”, there is also rich geology here, laid out at low tide on the beach, varying from ancient flints to fossilised forest tree stumps. The beach is usually sandy and is backed by impressive cliffs. It’s a safe swimming and visitor destination, with the charming village a stone’s throw from the beach.
