The north Nor­folk coast is de­servedly pop­u­lar and nowhere has at­tracted more top-end house-hunters than Burn­ham Mar­ket, aka Chelsea-on-Sea. The vil­lage is 37 miles north west of Nor­wich and three miles from beau­ti­ful Holkham Bay. A vil­lage green, ringed by Ge­or­gian houses, plus pukka shops and restau­rants, cre­ate a stylish am­bi­ence, and prices to match. On of­fer: two-bed­room, brick-and-flint bun­ga­low with con­ser­va­tory for £269,950 with Sower­bys (01328 730340).

There are tempt­ing op­tions on the Lon­don side of Nor­wich, too. Diss (pic­tured right), 25 miles south-west of the city, is an old mar­ket town on the edge of a lake, with pe­riod prop­er­ties on wind­ing streets. There is a fast train to Lon­don, putting Diss within com­mut­ing range, just. On of­fer: three­bed­room mod­ern house with large bal­cony and ex­ten­sive views over Diss Mere, £350,000 with Richard Green (01379 644822). Bec­cles, 17 miles south-east of Nor­wich, is ac­tu­ally in Suf­folk, but is so close to the Broads that it feels like part of Nor­folk. It is on the River Waveney, which makes it a mag­net for boat-own­ers. Mel­low red-brick Ge­or­gian houses give the town a time­less charm. The shops are good, too. On of­fer: three-bed­room, red-brick pe­riod cot­tage near the town cen­tre, £175,000 with Howards (0845 389 0401).
