Staying at
York Cottage

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 sits on the Norfolk Coast Path and is made up of two villages, Brancaster Staithe and Brancaster.

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.

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.
