Village and Harbour

Brancaster Staithe is the coastal village nestled between Brancaster and Burnham Deepdale which flow into one almost continuous settlement. 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.

Guest reviews

Lovely comfortable property, clean, well furnished, ideally located and a perfect place to stay on the North Norfolk coast with so many lovely villages and beaches easily accessible.The owners have clearly put a great deal of thought and investment in the property and whatever we needed was there. It's much more a 'home' than just another holiday cottage and we appreciated that very much.We know the area having stayed a bit further inland previously - this time we deliberately chose the coast for the pretty towns and villages both along the coast and nearby - Wells, Blakeney, Cley, Holkham, Morston - Burnham Market and Holt. Enjoyed excellent meals out - particularly the Dun Cow at Salthouse and Lord Nelson (the original one which Lord Nelson frequented) at Burnham Thorpe. Our daughter and son in law joined us for a couple of days with their Sprocker who loved long beach walks at Wells and Brancaster - as well as the new boardwalk just outside the back gate. One of the best holiday properties we have ever stayed in - and we've stayed in a few! Thank you.

The Hulls, 10th of May 2024

Good proximity to coast path, the staithe and the crab hut. Pub close by, good shops at Burnham Deepdale. Excellent workshop at Driftwood glass learning glass cutting techniques, designing and making a glass coaster. We loved the layout of the cottage and would certainly consider booking it again. Views over the Staithe from the bedrooms were lovely.

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.
