Beach

Brancaster has a beautiful far reaching golden sandy beach, ideal all year-round destination. Brilliant for sunny beach days with all the family, dogs too! There is a handy kiosk shop for refreshments and all-important beach games, kites and bucket and spades and a convenient large car-park just 50m from the beach. Brancaster Golf club is also beachside, if you walk left from the golf club there is an inlet where you can often see a seal or two basking in the sunshine. Be careful to check the tide tables for access to the beach as the beach road can get flooded at high tide.

Guest reviews

Spacious house for family gathering for special occasions. We had an excellent stay over Christmas with plenty of room for 9 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs. Incredible kitchen and open plan dining and sitting area well equipped. Particularly enjoyed the sitting room with wood burning fire with plenty of wood provided. Nice snug for children to watch tv. Experience couldn't have been better!
