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.

Lovely view, great location. Highlights the view and going to the beach.

The Abraham 's, 29th of April 2024

Loved returning to Cobblestones after a long gap! There's lots of space in the house (with garden space too) and the main bedroom and views from the terrace are wonderful. Main bedroom and terrace were a highlight of the house itself, and we also really enjoyed the location: (very) nearby pubs - especially the Jolly Sailors and the White Horse. The Fish Shed and Burnham Deepdale shops and cafe were also great, and the proximity of the cottage to the coast path.

The Kent's, 17th of April 2024

Great location and very comfortable Fishermans cottage, easy access to the marsh and coastal paths.

The Crewe's, 11th of August 2023

Over the last few years we have stayed at the property multiple times with the previous owners, this was our second stay with the current owners. The outside staircase to the roof terrace meant we used the space which probably has one of the best views in North Norfolk.

The Grice's, 29th of June 2023

Great house warmed up really quickly as the weather was chilly Great views and outdoor space.

The Cooke's, 27th of June 2023

Lovely cottage with a great position for walking the coastal paths.We love the decking area with views over the marshes.

The Howard's, 18th of April 2023

A delightful stay with a great sense of space and comfort. We enjoyed the stunning view from the main bedroom and deck. Walking in the area, comfort, a happy dog and wonderful fresh fish.

The Key Family, 21st of October 2022

Our second visit as this is the house we have most liked after staying at several other properties near by. The view from the veranda was beautiful will never tire of it. The toilet needed fixing and Sowerbys where there that day, brilliant

The Abraham's, 10th of October 2022

The Andrews Family, 6th of August 2021

Cobblestones Brancaster Staithe was Better than Expected - Ideal location for exploring the Norfolk Coastal Path, plus wonderful views from the bedroom. We liked the cottage so much that we have already booked to stay there again in April 2021

John & Claire, 2nd of October 2020

We likes the cottage, location and views. Comfortable and well equipped with nice sofa and comfortable main bedroom. The weather was nice and that allowed us to make best use of the location and facilities.

Andrew, 18th of September 2020

Fantastic. The owners have thought of everything, it is very tastefully decorated and equipped. Lovely bed and linen to ensure a good nights sleep. Fantastic views from the balcony. Excellent value for money
We really loved this property and had a great relaxing stay. We would very much like to return, hopefully early 2020. Thank you to Sowerby's and the owners for a very relaxing holiday in their exquisite home.
