Brancaster has a beautiful far reaching golden sandy beach, ideal all year-round destination. Brilliant for sunny beach days with all the family, dogs too! There is a handy kiosk shop for refreshments and all-important beach games, kites and bucket and spades and a convenient large car-park just 50m from the beach. Brancaster Golf club is also beachside, if you walk left from the golf club there is an inlet where you can often see a seal or two basking in the sunshine. Be careful to check the tide tables for access to the beach as the beach road can get flooded at high tide.


A superb Norfolk coastal village, if you are looking for a great beach holiday with activities such as scenic walking, sailing, wildlife and great sea food, Brancaster is the perfect place!

Set on the Norfolk Coastal Path and made up of two villages Brancaster and Brancaster Staithe. You can try the famous Brancaster Mussels and excellent sea food from many of the restaurants and kiosks: The Ship Inn is in the heart of the village and offers excellent dining. In neighbouring Brancaster Staithe The White Horse with spectacular views of the Staithe. The Fish Shed is well worth a visit, not only for fish but many other local delicacies too! For the young at heart Brancaster has a village playground, sports and playing fields for tennis netball and football, located behind The 71 Club Village Hall, bar and shop.


Neighbouring Brancaster Staithe with its harbour, a great sailing school, National Trust Activity Centre, The White Horse and The Jolly Sailors, awarded the nation’s best family pub and serve fantastic pizza! Brancaster Staithe Merges with Burnham Deepdale where you will find Dalegate market with a range of shops, excellent cafe, tourist information and bike hire. Burnham Market is just a short drive south a lovely leafy, trendy and quintessential Norfolk village, with boutique and independent shops, galleries and lovely range of eateries.

There are many wonderful beaches and villages to explore along the coastline, from Wells, iconic for the colourful beach huts to the unspoilt nature reserves of Titchwell, Holme and Snettisham.


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

Brancaster is conveniently located along the Coastliner bus route, and has a small village shop selling grocery basics and newspapers.

Guest reviews

Guestbook review: Brancaster House is a wonderful, well equipped and well located house. The range of rooms with bathroom facilities is amazing. The garden & parking space is perfect. I spent a long time trying to find 'the perfect cottage' with all our needs & this house was ideal. Walkable distance to the beach, the lovely Ship pub over the road and with a local store in short walking distance with a playground & playing field. Not too far from the Burnham Deepdale stores if further supplies are needed. The house is lovely - interesting pictures on the walls, plenty of room & storage, games cupboard and a lovely note left for us for ideas to do. Brancaster beach as ever is wonderful - the kiosk supplying a wide range of food, drink, ice cream & beach supplies is brilliant. The Ship across the road is lovely for food. Not to far for Holkham either with its fabulous beach & Hall.

The McEnery's, 15th of September 2023

Pleasant spacious house with reassuringly solid furniture. My grandson said, “This place has everything we need; a playground, the beach and a shop.” I enjoyed the buses and dinner at the Ship. The people who sell eggs in the village were lovely. Flying kites.

, 6th of September 2023

Lovely comfortable house for 4 adults and 2 children.Great location. Well equipped for our family. We enjoyed the house and garden and would consider visiting again. Lovely beach easy walking for us and car park next to the beach good if you have a lot of stuff to take. Pensthorpe nature reserve easy car drive and well worth a visit. Most of the time spent on the beach.

The Goodsell's, 22nd of August 2023

We've stayed here many times before and it never disappoints. Holkham and The Ship as well as the seals and views on Brancaster beach.

The Woodward Family, 21st of October 2022

Great location, nice kitchen and dining area. Great location for beach, park and village stores. Kitchen and dining area was a great space to gather and eat.

The Halls, 30th of September 2022

On the whole the weather was sunny and dry, a little bit chilly when windy. We visited the beaches and had lots of lovely walks during our stay. Grandma and Grandad took advantage of the brilliant coastliner 36 bus service. I got to relive my childhood by reading most of the " biggles" book!

Trinnaman Family , 27th of May 2022

We loved the location of the house, the accommodation was perfect for our needs. Plenty of room and lots of nice touches around the house. Nice big table for all of us to sit comfortably around & plenty of crockery and glasses etc. We had a very nice nice stay and enjoyed all the pretty beaches and walks.

The experience was well thought out. E.g. log fire and DVDs/board games for rainy weather. BBQ and nice seating for nice weather. Brancaster House was full of light. It was warm (didnt need heating on, but would have done in my own house in same weather conditions). Decor was lovely. We would stay again!

All Sowerbys holiday cottages are supplied with bed linen and towels and the cost of heating is included in the rental price.

Electric Vehicle charging

Cars may only be charged if there is an EV charging point fitted at the property. The cost of electricity is NOT included in the rental price and Sowerbys Holiday Cottages must be notified if the charger is used and an additional surcharge will be made. Due to insurance purposes, guests must never charge their car using a standard outdoor plug or an extension cable linking to a domestic plug. This is not permitted because of fire regulations regarding wiring, earthing rods and voltage restrictions; it poses a serious fire risk to standard 13 amp sockets and there is a real danger that the body of the vehicle could become live.
