SALTHOUSE

Salthouse

 

The small village of Salthouse nestles between a high ridge above and the salt marshes on the beach side.  In times gone by there was Salt Pans and would have been large piles of salt which would have been transported around the country.

The village is very quiet and where you can enjoy views over the marshes.  The area is renowned for its bird watchers and both common and rare birds can be seen.

The beach has a large pebble bank and is the only protection from the High Tides.

The Dun Cow pub overlooks the marshes and is a great place to stop and enjoy the view. 

Some of the land around the beach  is managed by the National Trust and is mostly marshland but it does give great views back towards the village.

Gramborough Hill is an archaeological site where a Roman settlement existed around the 3rd century and many Roman artifacts have been found.
