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

Had a lovely stay at Samphire Cottage in Brancaster Straithe. The cottage was so comfortable, very clean and very well equipped. The cottage is in an ideal location for travelling around the Norfolk coast. We will be back. Location of the cottage was great, with two lovely pubs to visit for dinner. Possible improvements: Everything was provided. Owners had really thought through what was needed in the cottage to make a very comfortable stay.

The Bink's, 23rd of May 2024

Beautifully appointed cottage. Comfy and warm. We had a lovely week and will be in touch to book 2025. Handy for Holkham Woods/beach as well as other dog friendly places locally. Samphire Cottage is beautifully situated between The Jolly Sailors and The White Horse pubs, which are both dog friendly. Lots of birdwatching too. I cannot praise this cottage enough. This is our 4th or 5th stay and we are never disappointed.

the Macmillan's, 12th of February 2024

We have spent yet another wonderful week in Samphire Cottage. Always a pleasure to return to this wonderfully equipped, cosy cottage which is so convenient for all the walks around. Also convenient for The Jolly Sailors and The White Horse! We are back in February 2024. Please convey our very best wishes to the owners who have so obviously spent time and effort in making Samphire Cottage such a beautiful place to stay.

The Macmillan's, 3rd of November 2023

Spotlessly clean cottage with everything we needed for a lovely stay in Samphire Cottage. The cottage is extremely well equipped, warm and very comfortable. The garden is secure and well maintained, including a hose and sink for hosing down dirty dog and boots. We would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to our family and friends. Thank you for the wine, milk and delicious biscuits. Looking forward to our November stay.
Good weather for the time of year and we managed to get out every day for some great walks and birdwatching. Holkham Beach and Woods, Wells Woods, Titchwell RSPB and Holme Next the Sea being our favourites. The White Horse Bar was excellent for food and The Jolly Sailors do a great pizza. We love Norfolk.

Just beautiful!!!!

Fabulous cottage - recently refurbished to a high standard and I wouldn't change anything! All rooms were really lovely and a visit in the summer would mean you could use the lovely garden too. Lovely to be able to light the fire as we were there in December - really cosy.

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.
