The village is some 15 km south-west of the town of Downham Market, 30 km south of the town of King's Lynn and 70 km west of the city of Norwich. The county boundary with Cambridgeshire is adjacent, and the city of Cambridge lies 40 km to the south.[1]

The civil parish has an area of 20.73 km² and in the 2001 census had a population of 528 in 217 households. For the purposes of local government, the parish falls within the district of King's Lynn and West Norfolk.[2]

In the 14th century, Welney was called Wellenhe, meaning "a river called Welle" (the old name of the Old Croft River).

Welney is situated on the Ouse Washes, an internationally important area of wildlife conservation. WWT Welney is a nature reserve in the care of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust. Nearby, there are also the RSPB Ouse Washes, a reserve managed by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.
