Located five miles east of Hunstanton and just two miles from Brancaster on the A149 this lovely little village stretches along the coast road with its pretty flint and chalk houses.
Titchwell is home to the 420 acre RSPB nature and bird reserve, an area of salt and freshwater marsh that stretches out to the sea and towards Brancaster. Home to thousands of birds it has a visitor centre, shop and café. Enjoy the guided walks or family events all year round with its nature trails and hides. The best thing is there is no cost to enter the reserve on foot. Open all year, it is a must to appreciate how special North Norfolk is and how wildlife is such an intrinsic part of this coastline.
The reserve offers a good chance of seeing bearded tits, avocets and bitterns among its many breeding species, including pink-footed geese, plovers and harriers in winter.
Walk through the reserve via the boardwalk to the beach, or access the beac via a right of way from the village. If you’re lucky you might just see the seals basking in Titchwell Creek just on the edge of Brancaster beach.
Titchwell boasts two hotels with restaurants and bars; Titchwell Manor and Briarfields.
Titchwell Manor is a fabulous boutique hotel with fantastic views from its lounge and bar area, where you can enjoy delicious food and afternoon tea. Offering award-winning dining in the informal Eating Rooms, it also has a sea view terrace and wonderful conservatory where you can enjoy fine dining. With 3 AA Rosettes it was recently named the county’s Best Restaurant and Pub for Dining.
Briarfields offers an extensive menu of locally sourced seafood and has a sun deck overlooking the marsh and sea beyond.
Titchwell offers easy access to the whole North Norfolk coast with its miles of sandy beaches, footpaths, fabulous pubs, restaurants, eateries, local ales, boutiques, galleries and delightful independent shops. Stop on the road and buy fresh crab from the local fishermen or take a boat out from Brancaster Staithe.
