The Batt Party - 29/06/2019

Just wanted to say that Brincliffe is a credit to its owners, it looks lovely from the pictures on the website but when you actually see it for real they don't do it justice!

It's immaculately clean, uncluttered, cosy, and we are thoroughly enjoying our stay, lucky to have another week to go before we go home!

I'm sure we will definitely be back again

Very well equipped. Had everything we needed. For us the location was great

The Spooner party - 24/08/2018

10 out of 10 for cleanliness and the gardening. The location of the property is excellent- right next to the dunes with a bench to watch the sunsets. Down the end of the houses so nice and quiet. It had lots of little touches that were well thought out, an outside tap, a fenced off area for the dog, a dog gate so that you could leave the door open, a lovely welcome basket full of goodies. Comfy beds. Felt welcoming and relaxing, not notices everywhere telling you what you shouldn't be doing! Absolutely nothing negative to say. Brincliffe is a wonderful welcoming place and we loved our stay here. Thanks so much to the owners and to Sowerbys.

Rachael Ward - 27/07/2018

Better than Expected. Much thought, on arrival welcome pack, towels for all. toilet rolls. washing up liquid so very happy and impressed with the thoughtfulness from all involved. It was very comfortable & welcoming & very close to the sea and beach, it was all a truly wonderful experience and one I would love to repeat again, hopefully next year

The Musson family - 15/06/2018

This property is warm, welcoming and well equipped.
It has everything yu need for the week, including dishwasher tabs and cleaning cloths.
The position is ideal for the dog as there are excellent walks from the door.
Despite the appalling weather our stay was comfortable and warm.
I was glad of the books to have a read.
We love this property!

Quinn Party - 16/03/2018

Having been here several times now, everything was to the same high standard as usual.
Difficult to rate the garden! It is a natural garden, part of the sand dune, which has been fenced off to provide a safe enclosed space for children and pets.
It is absolutely perfect.
I wouldn't use the property without that space.
The owners ensure that everything is provided for their guests and Brincliffe is a credit to them.

Belgin Party - 16/02/2018

Brilliant Venue

McCulley Party - 09/02/2018

As per the last 4 stays at Brincliffe, one word BRILLIANT. Kate really knows how to treat her guests so they feel it is home from home and the provisions are outstanding.
If only all accommodation was kept to this very high standard.

The Lawmans - 28/11/2017

Exceptional level of cleanliness and fabulous welcome pack including flowers and treats for my dog.
Brincliffe is the perfect hideaway.
Beach location but secluded and quiet.

The location of the cottage could not have been better - so close to the beach. The cottage felt homely and cosy and also had a good supply of stuff you might need for the beach. We did not expect to arrive to find milk, wine and other goods - a lovely surprise!

Hall party - 11/08/2017

We had a great time in this property, it is so convenient for the beach and was great for the dogs as is so dog friendly. Also it was great to have the samll outside area which was fully enclosed so the dogs were secure.

The beach house is a credit to the owners. So Quaint.
The flowers, cake, wine and dog treats which were left on arrival was such a lovely touch.
Thank you so much.

Thje Wright family and doggies - 26/04/2017

This is our first time here but it will not be our last. With being a dog owner this holiday home and it's location to the beach is perfect. I'd really suggest walking around the pond/river/stream (?)
There's wonderful wildlife to see. It's peaceful, relaxing and really quite beautiful.

Sometime next Year?

Thank you for a lovely stay in your beach house. You have created the perfect beachside retreat. We have xplored Norfolk's many beautiful beaches and sampled the menus of the local pubs. We recommend The Lifeboat at Thornham.

Matt, Kim and Oscar - 21/10/2016

We love your beach house. You've obviously enjoyed decorating this fantastic space and we appreciated all the cute details.
The welcome tray and the beautiful flowers are a lovely touch - we felt welcomed and wanted.
The weather has been very kind and we can walk over the dunes to the sea! A paradise!
A lovely spot and a lovely house!!

Linda, Alex and Edie - 30/09/2016

We've had a really wonderful week here at Brincliffe, our second stay and it was even better than our first.
One of the best points is being able to go for long walks along the beach without having to drive anywhere!
We can thoroughly recommend the Heacham Fish Bar just round the corner from Tesco. Really good cod and haddock, you won't be disappointed.
We really don't want to go home.... we'll have one last walk along the beach and river!

Jean and Anne - 23/09/2016

Hasd a lovely week here with the dogs. Very clean and welcoming, especially the welcome pack, the dogs loved their biscuits, many thanks from them :)
Excellent facilities providing everything you could need. Lovely quiet beach made a lovely anniversary week away.

Perfect and tasteful beach house in a fantastic location. We have done loads of walking, cycling, swimming, kayaking and the weather has been superb.
A great location for an active family holiday.
The house exceeded our expectations and we recommend it wholeheartedly.

Clare, Ian, Issy and Ginny - 01/09/2016

ASTOUNDED!! If only we'd known about this place before the kids arrived :)
We could have halved our packing with this well appointed and stocked beach house. GREAT location not only for the beach but also for exploring a little of Norfolk.
We have all thoroughly enjoyed it.

A wonderful peaceful find! So comfortable and everything supplied to make a lovely vacation. So welcoming and lovely flowers that added that little extra touch. Thank you for allowing us to share your lovely beach house.

Bev and Paul - 27/05/2016



Heacham is a large village located on the West Norfolk coast and home to two sandy beaches originally called North and South beach.Heacham has historic ties to Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, a native of this village on 5 April 1614 at a church in Jamestown, Virginia! The Church of St Mary the Virgin is the oldest surviving building in the village. It dates from 1230 and is Norman  in style. In the cupola on the tower hangs a bell dating from about 1100, making it the oldest in East Anglia, and the seventh oldest in the country.  The beaches at Heacham are on the east banks of The Wash. They are among the few beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land. A perfect spot for a romantic glass of wine! There is a wide selection of shops and pubs and the delightful Heacham Manor Hotel with its 18 hole golf course. Also in Heacham is Caley Mill which is an early 19th century water mill and now the site of Norfolk Lavender which has all the known varieties of lavender and is open to the public. For the smaller people in your party, take a trip to Farmer Fred's Adventure Play Barn with it's 3D farm themed adventure fun!!  The village has three pubs, The West Norfolk, The Fox & Hounds and The Bushel & Strike.
