Wow! What a beautiful home. We've had the most wonderful stay here at Skippers, it is clean, spacious and perfectly decorated. The garden in this lovely July weather has been the best sanctuary after a day of exploring. BBQ, glass of wine on the sun-lounger whilst the little ones run around the tree = perfection! We've totally fallen head over heels with the area and will 100% be back, thank you!


We had a wonderful stay here with our 3 children and we've enjoyed Brancaster beach everyday, what a fantastic location your house is!

We have had a wonderful time staying at 'Skippers'. Such a beautiful, well thought out house in a stunning location. We wish we could package it up and take it home with us! Wonderful trips to local beaches, Holkham Hall and Burnham Market. Thank you for having us and we hope to return again for another fantastic holiday.


We have had a wonderful stay in your beautiful home - thank you so much! The house is beautifully appointed with everything we needed readily to hand and in immaculate condition. We lucked out with amazing sunny days and enjoyed trips to Holkham, Burnham Market, Thornham, sunset over Hunstanton cliffs and of course halcyon evenings on our beloved Brancaster beach. We certainly hope to return in he not-too-distant future!


What a most fantastic house and garden, we have all enjoyed our stay-cation in such a brilliant part of the country. Having enjoyed all of the local pubs and restaurants, and what a pleasure to have the Beach at Brancaster on your doorstep. Fantastic days out had by all. Thank you for sharing your home! Five stars all the way, no-one wants to go home. Definitely recommend to family and friends


We absolutely loved it here! The house is so comfortable and furnished and the garden is such a sun trap. We also enjoyed walking Brancaster beach every morning and playing tennis at the playing field near the village hall. Luckily took our bikes with us, so we were able to cycle around beautiful Holkham and the lovely village of Thornham too. Overall, we thought it was fantastic!


Tennis, beaches, golf and pubs - a dream line-up!! Thank you so much for housing us in such a wonderful house, 5 stars!


Had such a lovely mini-break with my sister-in-law. Perfect weather, perfect company!


What a joy to have a change of scene after such a gritty pandemic winter. And what a change of scene - Norfolk skies, Brancaster Beach (happy dogs), catching up with local family, fabulous seafood and a very comfortable stay in this lovely house - Thank you!


Loved it here, thankyou for making our stay so welcome and cannot wait for our next visit. Very happy here, home from home.
