On the top floor you’ll find a large bedroom with two double beds, a wall of built-in wardrobes and a new separate WC. Equally perfect for a family of four who wish to sleep in the same room or for when the children want to jump in together! Comfy beds and crisp linens will ensure you’ll all enjoy a relaxing night’s sleep.
There is a downstairs cloakroom on the ground floor.
On a sunny summer’s morning, enjoy breakfast on the terrace or in the spacious and well-equipped kitchen/breakfast room with the French doors open. Or spill out into the the pretty south-facing garden and read the newspapers, before planning your days excursions. On returning from a fun day on the beach, cook-up a BBQ and chill out with a glass of wine!
The cottage is well located in this ever-popular village. Walk or drive to the beach, buy fresh seafood from the Fish Shed on the hard at Brancaster Staithe where you will also find Brancaster’s natural harbour, fabulous sailing facilities and tennis courts or head to Thornham where you’ll find the coolest deli, pubs and restaurant.
The whole family can enjoy a spot of ‘gillying’ or crabbing, as it is more commonly known at Brancaster Staithe or nearby Thornham or a little further afield at Wells-next-the-Sea. There is also plenty of fun to be had at the Victorian seaside town of Hunstanton, with its watersports centre, sea life centre, pitch and putt, crazy golf course, swimming pool, amusements and fun fair.
Don’t forget to find out more about Brancaster’s history which dates back to Roman times!
After a good old fashioned day at the beach, enjoy a lively family BBQ before watching the sun go down on your perfect day.
There is plenty to do in the winter months too, with bird watching and walking right on your doorstep. The cottage is located close to the coastal path, but if you’re not feeling that energetic, there are plenty of places to eat and dine locally and to enjoy and discover.
The Ship serves up great food in its bar and restaurant which is just a short stroll away and The White Horse and Jolly Sailors in Brancaster Staithe provide excellent food and ales too. The award-winning Titchwell Manor in the next village is well worth a visit and offers fine dining in its beautiful conservatory and bar menu too.
The RSPB reserve at Titchwell is an absolute must for children and adults alike. A little further along the coast, the chic Georgian village of Burnham Market, with its beautiful independent shops, galleries, cafes and pubs is perfect for a spot of retail therapy. The Hoste Beauty Spa is worth a visit if you desire a little pampering while on holiday.
