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, mussels and oysters are real local delicacies but a special mention goes to samphire which can only be found in Norfolk (and contains more iron than spinach!). Particularly recommendations include The Ship in Brancaster, The White Horse in Brancaster Staithe, Titchwell Manor, The Orange Tree in Thornham and The Duck in Stanhoe, all of which are with a 10 minute drive.
Brancaster also offers one of the UK’s most challenging links courses, the Royal West Norfolk. The adjacent beach features spectacular wildlife including seals, waders, skylarks and the odd passing hobby.

For the uninitiated, why not begin your sailing with some expert training with the local experts.
