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

Guest reviews

Little Ash is a very clean, well equipped and welcoming cottage, one of the best we've stayed in. Its in a great location too. We would love to stay again one day. Spending time on the wonderful beaches, visiting Titchwell and fish and chips at Erics.

The Walter's, 1st of November 2023

Lovely cottage, plenty of room. It was clean and comfortable. It was well equipped with hand soap, toilet rolls (for the first time in all the cottages I have been to, I didn’t have to buy toilet rolls - just great). Had plenty of dishwasher tablets for the whole week. Left mine in the car. Tea and coffee there for our use. Not having to drive, on the coastal bus route. Visted Old Hunstanton found a nice little cafe on the beach almost as well as a fairly large craft shop. Which I love. Having a meal in The Ship Hotel. Great service.

The Bedinfield's, 19th of October 2023

Little Ash has thought of everything and more . Very clean and welcoming and ideal for beach , walking and buses . Loved the Coal Shed too . Enjoyed our week there and would recommend staying here. Will hopefully be back again next year. Kirby Family Close to all amenities in Brancaster and able to catch very reliable coastal hopper buses

The Kirby Party, 7th of October 2022

Enjoyed our second visit to this lovely cottage. Very quiet even though it is on the main road. Furnished and presented well. We really like the proximity to the coast and the standard to which the cottage is furnished. The off road parking is also appreciated. The property has a good atmosphere and has been refurbished to a good standard.

The Gages, 23rd of September 2022

At Little Ash the location is great, the kitchen is lovely and there is plenty of space. The wine and food items waiting for us was a nice touch. It was a lovely cottage and we would like to say thanks. Thanks for another fabulous 2 weeks.

The Gaunt's, 30th of July 2021

Great holiday property. Very well equipped, spacious, clean, comfortable and pretty.

The Curry's, 16th of July 2021

We liked the space - enough for 5 of us and we also liked the homely style and seems to be a home that the owners enjoyed too.

The Coote Family, 9th of July 2021

We loved the cottage and particularly the downstairs kitchen living area and downstairs cloakroom. Very conveniently located to access the post office and shop and in walking distance of the Ship Inn and the beach.

The Genders Party, 17th of May 2021

We liked the location of Little Ash and the cottage had everything! It was also a very clean property, we would stay again!

The Wetton, 30th of April 2021

The photos did this lovely cottage justice. Very cosy. Everything at Little Ash was spick and span. There was no garden as such but the driveway and patio were fine. Really enjoyed out break in the cottage. It is only just over an hour from our home but in these times it was fantastic

The Kates', 2nd of October 2020

Little Ash was cosy, comfortable & warm. A lovely large kitchen. Great location for walking to the beach. 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.
