History

A petrified forest can be seen at low tide (west of the golf club) remains of vegetation that looks a bit like black rubber.  You may also spot an old shipwreck on the beach, the remains of SS Vina which was used by the RAF for target practice before the Normandy landing.

To the east of the village is the grass covered mounds of the National Trust Branodunum Roman settlement, which is an old Saxon Shore fort, first used to protect shipping and trade on the coast

Lovely and well equipped flat with great coastal views and location.Despite freezing January conditions the flat was very cosy and it was lovely to see deer grazing on the frosty communal garden each morning.The flat has a light and airy interior and as well as access to a communal garden it is within easy walking distance to Brancaster beach and the coastal path making it an ideal base for any season. Close location to walks along the beaches and coastal path.Winter wildlife.Bright winter sun days.

Electric Vehicle charging

Cars may only be charged if there is an EV charging point fitted at the property.
