This Arts and Craft style house was also home to the Countess of Yarborough and her husband John Maunsell Richardson (nicknamed Cat Richardson), in his day the best gentleman National Hunt jockey in England having won every major steeplechase race twice including the Grand National in 1873 and 1874.
Overstrand is a pretty coastal fishing village close to the town of Cromer, made famous by Clement Scott the London Drama and Literary critic in Victorian times who named it Poppyland. From his published articles in the Daily Telegraph came a constant flow of London's most famous acting community to visit and stay in Overstrand. The village is populated with large, interesting houses from that time.
