Brancaster Staithe is the coastal village nestled between Brancaster and Burnham Deepdale which flow into one almost continuous settlement. The village boasts a picturesque fishing harbour with sailing club with sailing school, two lovely pubs, The White Horse with outside dining that looks over the Staithe and has a great seasonal menu. The Jolly sailors which boasts a national family pub award, they have an outside eating area, play area and serve delicious pizza as well as putting on music events as well as an Ale festival. Near the harbour is the National Trust Activity Centre, just off the coastline is the Scolt Head Island National Nature reserve as off shore 4 mile long sand bar that extends from Brancaster to Wells-next-the-Sea. You can take a boat trip with Branta Cruises to visit the island, also great for bird watching so take your binoculars. Be sure to pop to The Fish Shed for some lovely sea food and the famous Brancaster Mussels.

On the Door Step

Burnham Deepdale merges with Brancaster Staithe and has the Dalgate Market shops, cafe, great for breakfast, tourist information and bike hire. Annual Spring Market, 1940’s weekend and The charming Christmas Market are some of the events you can visit at Dalgate market

With the Norfolk coastline being one of the most diverse in the country many of the beaches have something different to offer. The Coastal Path makes for beautiful scenic walks to take in the sea air. There is some great wildlife form the many Nature reserves, Titchwell, The Lookout in Holkham Nature Reserve and Cley Marshes Visitors Centre to name a few. Some more unusual animal encounters might be the Llamas in Wells or the beautiful seal trips from Blakeney or Morston.

Our second stay in this property and as before everything was excellent. Great location, very quiet and well maintained. A modern well equipped property.

David, 7th of June 2024

We thought the house was wonderful, great location, field view and so quiet. It had everything we needed, spacious with lovely decor, a real home from home. Seeing munjac in the field, the Jolly Sailor for mussels and chips and walk up the side for a view of Brancaster Staithe. A seafood platter at the Whitehorse. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend, thank you.

The Brately's, 5th of March 2024

Your description on Allerdale House was excellent. It’s a beautiful house, in a great location for getting out and about exploring North Norfolk. There are lots of great places to visit and nice walks straight from the door. It has been furnished to a very high standard, with a lovely kitchen dinner and has been made to feel very homely. An added bonus that we were able to park our car in the cart shed. We loved it so much we have booked to return in March! Thank you! We may fit in a week before March, if the weather looks good! Thank you!

the platt's, 27th of December 2023

A fantastic 2 bedroomed house with plenty of room for a family of 4.
Decor was modern and the sofas, chairs and beds were all very comfortable.
The side door was useful for using when boots/shoes were muddy.
Garden looked lovely and would be lovely to use in the summer.

The King's, 27th of October 2023

The Miller's, 16th of October 2023

We loved our stay here! Sowerby cottages was recommended to us by a friend and we booked this place quite last minute after a holiday elsewhere fell through. Couldn’t fault it! Everything was done to a really high standard, we had all the facilities we needed, and the view from the garden was beautiful!

Beautiful home with stylish fittings and furniture throughout. Really good layout and high quality products BW it the fitments, furniture or ornaments/paintings. It felt a truly fantastic home from home.

The Signh's, 23rd of August 2023

One of the nicest holiday cottages we’ve stayed in. The house was very spacious, light and nicely furnished. We particularly enjoyed the garden and comfortable outdoor furniture. Long coastal walks at Blakeney and Burnham Overy Staithe.The Marshland Bar at the White Horse, Brancaster. Wonderful to watch the sun set there. Fantastic Sunday Lunch at the Blakeney Hotel Relaxing on the beaches at Brancaster and Old Hunstanton.

The Cowan's, 23rd of August 2023

Excellent house and situation.

The Sheriff's, 13th of July 2023

A fabulous week in a really lovely property. It was very well equipped with everything we needed, spacious and in a very quiet location. We particularly liked the neutral decor and the artwork. The clock in the dining area is amazing. Easy access and undercover parking were much appreciated. The weather was outstanding and we were able to enjoy all our favourite haunts and nature reserves. After a long day out it was lovely to return to a gorgeous home in the evening. Best property we have stayed in during our 20 odd years of holidaying in Norfolk.

The Eccle's, 29th of June 2023

Lovely modern house with every convenience.Great for two couples with own facilities.Lovely garden, with sun most of the day. Able to relax on the garden furniture and there is a BBQ for guests use. Being close to Titchwell and other bird reserves.Walking along the marshes to The White Horse, where we enjoyed a meal and saw a beautiful sunset.Not far from National Trust properties. We had a great day out at Blickling, calling in at Holt and a drink outside in the sunshine at The Three Swallows at Cley.Holt is also a great place to shop ladies fashion!Allerdale House is a great base to visit anywhere along the beautiful north Norfolk coast.

The Everett's, 21st of June 2023

Allerdale House is a modern, very well equipped, clean and comfortable property. It is located in a quiet cul-de-sac in Brancaster Staithe and is a perfect location for access to the North Norfolk coast, small enclosed garden has views across agricultural land to the rear. A large car port and space outside the house provides room for two vehicles. The harbour at Brancaster Staithe is a few minutes walk away and The Jolly Sailors and White Horse pubs are within easy walking distance. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Allerdale House. We would certainly return and highly recommend it.
We used Allerdale House as a base for birdwatching. We are regular visitors to North Norfolk and our highlight is always the beautiful landscape of this part of the world and the birds that inhabit it. A lovely place to stay. The owners are very lucky to have such a great place in an excellent location.

Very comfortable house in a good, quiet location with only a short drive to beaches, shops, pubs etc.House is modern and has all the features you require. Comfortably accommodates 4.Nice outdoor seating. Comfortable stay in the house.

The Matthew's, 18th of April 2023

Another enjoyable stay at Allerdale House which was perfect for four adults and 11 week old grand daughter. Our son was able to work from home. Weather was good and enabled us all to get out and about. Great to come back to a spacious warm base with everything we needed. Nissa handy and well stocked, used Jolly Sailor for pizzas.

The Scott's, 7th of March 2023

First stay at allerdale house and I have to say what a lovely house it is so well equipped and in a great position will be back. We were both surprised by the size and lay out of the house and had great weather so used the garden nearly every day.

The Jamesons, 30th of September 2022

Really good location - walked to Brancaster Beach and walked to The Ship, The White Horse and The Jolly Sailors. Was really nice not to have to use the car every day

The Steggall's, 24th of June 2022

It was even better in real life than in the photos! Location was excellent too - very close to the harbour. We loved our stay in Allerdale House - it was beautifully presented with everything we needed, an amazing garden that was a real sun trap, and in a fantastic location in beautiful Brancaster Staithe. We didn’t want to leave!

The Hunt Family, 18th of April 2022

We thought it would be lovely but it was amazing! We liked everything, especially the smashing garden furniture and the TVs in the Bedrooms.The best & finest equipped holiday rental we’ve been to. Felt very lucky to stay in this exceptionally well built and beautifully furnished home. The Prosecco and crisps was a very nice touch. We dropped our bikes off before 4pm and met the wonderful housekeeper Alexia who was more than happy for us to leave the bikes behind the gate, a very nice lady! Really hope we’ll be able to visit again, thank you.

The Hooks and The Almey's, 15th of April 2022

A very lovely house! Beautiful decoration. We also loved the side access when coming in from the beach. We hope to be back!!

The Ryder's, 12th of April 2021

At Allerdale House the 2 en-suite was really good, also the garden outside seating was was excellent. The kitchen also very well equipped. We probably will come back, but in the summertime. In winter a wood burner would be a must.

The Sowter Family, 11th of October 2020

Allerdale House was even newer and better equipped than we expected. A spacious, modern and comfortable holiday home with a good location. The view over fields to rear was a bonus!
