Overstrand is an odd name for a village and visitors to this delightful north Norfolk village often ask if it means anything. Overstrand has its roots in the old Saxon tongue (and from there, in the even older Nordic) – where ‘strand’ was the word for the part of the beach left exposed after the tide had gone out.
Therefore the name ‘Overstrand’ seems to indicate that the place was up or above the strand – i.e. the place overlooking the beach at low tide.
Overstrand can trace its origins back to pre-Norman invasion times and it’s mentioned in the Domesday Book.
Its heyday was during the late Victorian to Edwardian period when the village became a popular holiday destination for many of the great and the good of their day. As a result, even today the village carries an air of gentility and quiet style which visitors find very appealing.
The village of Overstrand is located in the centre of an official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The breathtaking views and idyllic country scenes can be found all around Overstrand.
Being situated in north Norfolk, Overstrand is only 2 miles from the ever-popular seaside town of Cromer, with its expansive beaches, shops, cafes and restaurants.
