The village is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and overlooks the salt marshes next to the Norfolk Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre.
Clustered around the village green are pretty cottages, The Dun Cow pub with a large front garden that looks directly over the salt marsh, Cookies Crab Shop offering platters of seafood, salads, sandwiches and ice cream.
East of the village, past the village pond, is Mac's Plaice where you can buy Fish & Chips during the summer months.
The magnificent church of Salthouse holds regular art exhibitions and concerts throughout the year.
The Old Post Office is now a store selling great local produce including beef from the cattle grazed on the marsh and a variety of provisions. You can also get a great cuppa and some homemade cake after a day out on the reserve.
The beach is mainly pebble and shingle, but unlike other parts of the Norfolk coast, the tide does not go out very far. Parking is easy and it is perfect for a picnic.
