Guest reviews

A great house for a family break. We had a wonderful time. We would definitely book this property again. Comfortable, spacious, quiet location. We had a great stay. A very lovely house to relax in. The property was comfortable and met all our needs. It was easy to keep clean and tidy. Great to have a covered porch area for all the shoes and boots particularly as the weather was not great. A wonderful house for a family get together and we would definitely book it again.

The Horrell's, 4th of June 2024

Market Lane House is ideal for multi generational holidays. Great having a seperate room for the children and a lovely comfortable lounge for the grownups. The garden was safe for dogs and children alike. Perfect location for a walk to the beach or coastal path. The village shop was a huge hit for morning papers milk bread etc. Would definitely stay here again. We enjoyed the location/position of the house being set back off the main road it was lovely and peaceful. The village shop was very useful and well stocked. My grandchildren loved the fact they could go to the park on their own ( an adult did supervise crossing the road ! ) The main thing was we were able to walk to the beach and only needed to take one car loaded with picnic, paddle boards, surf boards and all the required beach paraphernalia. The beach car park is now £10 per day ! Very easy access to the coastal path to.

The Deacan's, 11th of April 2024

Market Lane house is just lovely in every way, a pleasure to stay as always.

The Sutton's, 12th of January 2024

A lovely big house in a very good location. Brancaster is a fabulous place to spend a holiday, and the house was very comfortable and well equipped. We were a large party and there was ample room for us all! We had come away with the family (of three generations) to spend some quality time together to celebrate my birthday and New Year’s Eve.. It was lovely to be able to do this, with our grandchildren and dogs included and spend time walking on the beautiful beaches and then playing games in the warmth of the house in the lovely cosy comfortable sitting room.

The Dennis's, 11th of January 2024

We stayed at Market Lane House, Brancaster over Christmas and it was a lovely treat. To have a dog friendly large cottage with an enclosed garden and so close to the beach was perfect. To be expected it was a bit creaky and draughty in places, and we had no fire wood, but otherwise we had everything we needed. We even arrived to a fully decorated Christmas tree. Thank you! Location, enclosed garden, Christmas tree, welcome pack, clear instructions, well decorated and stocked with comfortable furniture.

The Felstead, 5th of January 2024

Lovely house in a great setting away from the main road in Brancaster. The house is well equipped and very comfortable , with the addition of Wi-Fi and even Sky tv, which was brilliant for entertainment for our 4 grandsons ages ranging from 2 to 7. All the family loved their stay. It was great to be able to close the gate and the property be secure for the children and the dog.

The Maxfield's, 28th of October 2023

We all had a lovely holiday at Market Lane House. We had everything we needed. We all had plenty of room to move about and the lounge was well equipped for us all to be together. The bedrooms were very light and airy and the beds very comfy. Also the kitchen was the same. The garden was a good size for our little 2 year old and dogs to run around in.

The North's, 16th of August 2023

Good sized homely house in a lovely village within walking distance of the beach

The Longs, 28th of April 2023

This is a beautiful house, very private and in a perfect location. Great position for exploring the area. Very homely and comfortable for a family holiday. Brancaster beach is a perfect place for a dog walk and blow the cobwebs off. White horse in Brancaster Staithe was a great find for a quality fishy lunch on the veranda.

The house is great. Down a quiet road. School children opposite but that didn't bother us. nice big garden. Close to a good pub. close to the beach, comfortable beds and living quarters. Loved all the various paintings too.
