Guest Reviews

Avocet Cottage was Clean, comfortable and well equipped. Well placed for exploring North Norfolk. Lovely walks from the cottage, two pubs in the village and a great Nisa just down the road.

Smith Party - 21/07/2019

Dog friendly and central location to coast walks Warm and ccomfortable cottage, well located for walks along the Norfolk coast

Phillips - 24/03/2019

We started here for 7 days and stayed for 28! Waiting for our new house to exchange and complete, we couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. Very warm and cosy, enclosed safe courtyard for our dog. The kitchen is well equipped. We have explored North Norfolk and particularly love Holkham and Wells. We will be back!!

Susie, Phil and Finnebar the cockapoo - 24/01/2019

Lovely cottage. We stay somewhere on the north coast of Norfolk for this week every year and this is a particularly good place to stay. Out and about birdwatching every day despite the weather. Ale at the White Horse - highly recommended. Generally had a lovely few days!

Julia and Tim Cook - 07/12/2018

A lovely stay in a gorgeous little cottage, lots of fabulous walks and wonderful meals in both the White Horse and teh Orange Tree. A super lunch at Back to the Garden in Holt. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Julie and Stuart - 30/09/2018

A wonderful short break for the end of the the summer. Amazing weather - long walk to Burnham Market and a day on the beach. Lots of chat and many laughs. A lovely little cottage and great location. The Fish Shed is incredible and the little NISA store very well stocked. Sad to leave.

Simon, Rosie, Kate, Harrya nd Jack - 03/09/2018

We had an excellent week, weather hot! Lovely location. The White Horse serves lovely meals. Everything was great!

Pat and Steve Finch - 03/08/2018

Our second time in Avocet Cottage and another excellent stay. Weather sadly didn't cooperate - cloudy and windy all week. Really good food at The Ship Inn, Brancaster. Holkham beach still by far the best for dogs. Thanks for a lovely cottage to stay in and enjoy this part of Norfolk.

Jill, Gary and Finnley - 13/07/2018

Compact cottage, with good access to buses, the coastal path and grocery shops. We have enjoyed good weather and many delightful walks.

Brancaster Staithe

Location

A bustling village with an attractive harbour which is just to the east of Brancaster (staithe means wharf, or landing stage). There is a well-supported sailing club here and in the summer at high tide there is always a crowd of people and boats jostling to get onto the water. The sea still gives a living to many in the area though and Brancaster Staithe is famed for its mussels, which may be bought locally at The Fish Shed along the coast road. 

Just off the coast of Brancaster  Staithe, Scolt Head Island is a four mile long sand bar housing a National Nature Reserve well-known for terns, oystercatchers, and ringed plovers. You can take a boat trip with Branta Cruises to visit the island.

The village is a picturesque one, with typical flint walling on many cottages, and popular with second home owners and holiday makers. There is good beer and food available throughout the day at the Jolly Sailor's pub, or for more of a treat with stunning views and delicious food there is The White Horse overlooking the marshes which has just been voted the county's eatery for 2018 in the National Pub and Bar awards.

Next to Brancaster Staithe is Burnham Deepdale which has a Norman church, a visitors centre and a good selection of shops, including a small supermarket, Fat Face and Gone Crabbing.  After a brisk walk on the beach or an invigorating sail there's nothing better than a trip to the ever popular Deepdale Café, renowned for its hearty English breakfasts.
