Binham has long been one of the most 'sought after' North Norfolk villages in which to own property. It is very pretty and benefits from being just 5 miles inland from Wells-next-the-Sea and 7 miles from the lovely Georgian market town of Holt.
The village boasts a great pub, The Chequers Inn, a super village shop, petrol garage and is of course home to the famous ruins of Binham Priory, founded in 1091 by Peter des Valoines, a nephew of William the Conqueror.
Binham is also home to Abbey Farm Dairy who sell their absolutely delicious Raw Milk and other farm shop produce from The Little Dairy Shop situated next to the ruins.
There are also great pubs in the nearby villages of Warham, Wighton, Langham and Walsingham.
