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!

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.

The Sherrif's, 10th of January 2023

Lovely comfortable cottage in a fantastic position. Ideal to walk to Brancaster beach. Not far from Wells and Holkham which we like to visit. Went to Blakeney for the first time this year and had a lovely walk around the quayside. We would definitely recommend The Two Magpies Deli in Blakeney, the Deli in Wells and Thornham all lovely for drinks and food. We had an amazing fish platter at the Crab House in Wells, definitely recommend eating here but you need to book.

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.
