Snettisham village is located near the west coast of Norfolk, about 5 miles south of the seaside resort of Hunstanton, 9 miles north of the town of King´s Lynn and 45 miles north-west of the city of Norwich.
Snettisham RSPB reserve, on the coast of The Wash, 2 miles to the west of Snettisham village, is a nature reserve in the care of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. It consists of bird lagoons and bird observation hides, including a rotary hide.
The Snettisham coast around the reserve is often said to be "where Norfolk stares at Lincolnshire". This is because, unlike much of Norfolk´s coast where the sea stretches to the horizon, Snettisham looks across the square-mouthed estuary of The Wash at the county of Lincolnshire, only 15 miles away.
The River Ingol runs to the south of the village upon which stands the previously unused Snettisham Watermill. Snettisham Watermill is a beautiful Grade II listed watermill and granary built in AD1800 in the local carr stone. It has been lovingly restored by the owner and is has now been turned in to self catering holiday accommodation.
St. Mary´s Church in the village has a 14th-century, 172-foot (52 m) high spire.
