The house is perfectly equipped for keeping adults and children alike entertained come rain or shine.

Quick guide to your location

The villages of Brancaster and Brancaster Staithe are in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the North Norfolk coast. With a glorious beach and thriving fishing and sailing communities, Brancaster is perfect for a coastal holiday. Brancaster beach is one of Norfolk’s glorious beaches, with miles of unspoilt golden sand, as far as the eye can see, and also has the added advantage of being incredibly child friendly and dog friendly too. The Royal West Norfolk Golf Club is located in Brancaster with its fine links course and Burnham Market is about 4 miles away with its wide range of interesting shops, boutiques and restaurants. There are plenty of pubs in and around Brancaster, so you'll never be short of somewhere to visit after your day at the beach.
