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

Our fifth stay here, lovely open and spacious comfortable cottage enjoying the benefits of a truly sunny and delightful enclosed private garden..with a superb olive tree, probably one of largest in the UK , and a west facing decked terrace too , for evening sunshine and sunsets. Set on the coast road just yards from local shops and garage. Views over the adjacent marshes towards Brancaster Beach and Scolts Head Island. Private off street parking. Sadly sunshine was in very short supply this year, so the full benefits of this cottage weren't utilised much. Had to have heating on too in June! Most unusual.The cottage itself is a favourite of ours, ticking so many boxes, it feels very familiar now and love the location, bang in the middle of the wonderful north west Norfolk coastline.

David, 7th of June 2024

This is our 6th stay in Oak Cottage. It's a good place for exploring, both the immediate location and just a short drive from all our favourite places. It's well equipped, very comfortable beds and a lovely garden. We like an evening walk round the harbour and along the coast path to the White Horse sitting with a drink on the balcony with a glass of wine overlooking the marshes

The Eveleigh's, 20th of April 2024

Great cottage with a great space that works very well and well equipped. Everything you need for your stay. Great location to amenities and coastal paths.

The Whelan's, 4th of October 2023

We've returned to Oak Cottage many times. We really like it's location and layout. Its decor is simple and uncluttered which we prefer.
The fully enclosed garden is great for dogs and eating out in, during the summer. The log burner makes it very cosy in the winter. Everything that you need is close by in terms of eating out and shopping.
We'll be back soon.
