Ash Cottage

Brancaster, Norfolk, UK
Sleeps 6 | Bedrooms 3 | Bathrooms 3 | Maximum 2 Dogs
Follow the coastal road along North Norfolk's water's edge and you'll stumble upon a chalk-fronted paradise. A moment of blissful charm that sits close enough to the sea that you can smell the ocean air waft through the windows as you wake up ready for another day of spontaneous adventures. A beach picnic or a pub lunch, oysters to start or mussels for your main, grilled sardines as the sunsets or a night pub hopping on the coastal path - each day comes with another chance to explore before heading back to Ash Cottage to relax, recharge and reset.
Key Features


With three stylish, spacious bedrooms everyone can enjoy their own private space to relax in, or alternatively, bring your family and friends together in the open plan living space and enjoy some quality time together over a delicious home cooked meal or by enjoying a good family board game – friendly competition is advised at all times! With underfloor heating downstairs, your toes will be kept toasty in the winter, and with sunshine streaming through the bi-fold doors in the summer, this house really is perfect all year round.


Ash Cottage has been beautifully designed and decorated using a palette of blues, whites and creams to match the coastal theme throughout – the thick cream carpet is even representative of the lovely soft sand found on Brancaster Beach!


To the front of the property there is a small open garden with a low perimeter wall.

At the rear of the property there is an enclosed south-facing garden that also runs around the side of the house. This garden is laid to lawn which is bordered with pretty lavender plants and shrubs. There is also a patio area with an al fresco dining set ? perfect for enjoying those long warm summer evenings!

There are two off-road parking spaces located at rear of the property which are accessed by the driveway to the side of the house. Ash Cottage parking is in the right-hand side of the car port.

The cottage is well located in this ever-popular village. You are within walking distance to The Ship Inn pub/restaurant and can also walk or drive to the beautiful, expansive sandy beach! You are also just a short drive from the villages of Brancaster Staithe or Thornham where you will find fabulous restaurants and eateries, shops, harbours and plenty of coastal entertainment!

Staying at
Ash Cottage

Quick guide to your location

A key destination for any visit to the North Norfolk coast, the Brancasters offer a wide range of activities and opportunities for all ages. Both villages have been formed around the ‘coast road’ (A149) and can easily be explored by walking the pathways that link the two together. You will find excellent places to eat, offering locally caught produce from the harbour at Brancaster Staithe.
