North Creake is an attractive village about three miles South of the beautiful village of Burnham Market and located North of the market town of Fakenham. The welcoming Jolly Farmers traditional pub lies in the centre of the village. North Creake is perfectly positioned for the North Norfolk coast with its long sandy beaches, walks and wildlife.
The River Burn runs through the village, flowing onwards to Burnham Overy Town and Burnham Overy-Staithe. At one time this was a major waterway for trade but in latter centuries the river has silted up and no longer has the capacity to allow passage from the sea.
On the perimeter of the village there lies the ruins of Creake Abbey, a 12th century Augustine Abbey that was once a local powerhouse, holding much wealth and influence. Now under the stewardship of National Heritage, a visit to present day Creake Abbey could include flower shows, theatrical events, craft shops and an excellent farmers market. Wonderful walks through the countryside can start from the abbey grounds with much of the local farmland having byways to explore.
North Creake is only a short journey away from Burnham Market, Holkham, Wells-next-the-Sea and Brancaster and is your quintessential Norfolk village.
