Guest Reviews

Excellent cottage - so close to the sea and lovely welcome pack when we got there. Everything was clean and comfortable and the shower was great - something that is not always so.

Baker party - 16/07/2018

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all with reference to our stay last week at Duffields. After a very long 5.5hrs journey up from Surrey on the friday eve Duffields was a vey welcoming sight! The house was beautiful, clean, well equipped and very comfortable and great location. The information you sent on the area was most useful. We all had a wonderful time exploring Norfolk and would highly recommend you to family and friends. Our sheltie dog Skye is 2 inches shorter from all the walks!! Many thanks

Gates Party - 21/10/2016

Just to say how much my family enjoyed their stay at Duffields. The location was ideal and the house was tastefully furnished and the little extra's, especially toys, wind breaker, barbecue and flowers gave the family a great holiday.

We have rented several properties from Sowerbys, but this house and garden we give full marks 10 out of 10.

Brancaster

Location

Brancaster is renowned for its wide expanse of sandy beach and has the advantage of being one of the few places along this stretch of the North Norfolk coastline that you can park the car less than 50m from the beach. This makes it a popular choice for families and as one of the driest parts of the UK it makes it an excellent choice for a traditional English seaside holiday.

Throughout the year the beach is used by dog walkers, kite-surfers and bird-watchers, and in warmer climes by paddlers, swimmers and basking seals.

For those needing more intellectual stimulus, at very low tides the remains of a petrified forest can be seen here. Brancaster was the site of the Roman fort of Branodonum, built to guard against raids by Frankish and Saxon pirates, although some local legends claim it was to counter Druids living nearby. All that is left of the fort now are a few ditches to the east of the village, and some Roman bricks in various cottages and outhouses. More recent history may be seen in St Mary's church, a Saxon building with a characteristic round tower nearly a thousand years old. The church has some beautiful medieval stained glass, and a fifteenth century bell cast in Kings Lynn.

For the more energetic the National Trust runs Brancaster's Activity Centre, offering sailing, orienteering and kayaking for children and parents, and just outside there is the Royal North West Norfolk Golf Club which is one of the best courses in the area.

The local pub The Ship has an excellent reputation as an award winning quality restaurant.

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