Sea Lavender House is part of the exclusive Powell's Yard development, which has been imaginatively constructed in a barn style, using local chalk and flint. This is a beautifully presented luxurious holiday home which has been tastefully furnished to an extremely high standard to comfortably accommodate 6 people within its 3 lovely bedrooms. There is a wonderful feeling of space throughout with a stunning kitchen/breakfast room with a high vaulted ceiling with white-washed beams, and a wonderful light and airy spacious living room; both rooms with glazed doors opening onto the garden. The fully enclosed south-west facing garden is safe and perfect for children, or for enjoying a quiet meal alfresco on the terrace. It is quietly located off the coast road within a short walk from the gorgeous sandy Brancaster beach, the acclaimed Royal West Norfolk golf club and the excellent Ship Hotel. Just a few minutes drive away is the charming Georgian village of Burnham Market or for keen ornithologists there's the nearby RSPB reserve at Titchwell.

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.

Village

A superb Norfolk coastal village, if you are looking for a great beach holiday with activities such as scenic walking, sailing, wildlife and great sea food, Brancaster is the perfect place!

You can try the famous Brancaster Mussels and excellent sea food from many of the restaurants and kiosks: The Ship Inn is in the heart of the village and offers excellent dining. In neighbouring Brancaster Staithe The White Horse with spectacular views of the Staithe. The Fish Shed is well worth a visit, not only for fish but many other local delicacies too!

Brancaster Staithe Merges with Burnham Deepdale where you will find Dalegate market with a range of shops, excellent cafe, tourist information and bike hire. Burnham Market is just a short drive south a lovely leafy, trendy and quintessential Norfolk village, with boutique and independent shops, galleries and lovely range of eateries.

There are many wonderful beaches and villages to explore along the coastline, from Wells, iconic for the colourful beach huts to the unspoilt nature reserves of Titchwell, Holme and Snettisham.

History

A petrified forest can be seen at low tide (west of the golf club) remains of vegetation that looks a bit like black rubber.  You may also spot an old shipwreck on the beach, the remains of SS Vina which was used by the RAF for target practice before the Normandy landing.

To the east of the village is the grass covered mounds of the National Trust Branodunum Roman settlement, which is an old Saxon Shore fort, first used to protect shipping and trade on the coast


Brancaster is conveniently located along the Coastliner bus route, and has a small village shop selling grocery basics and newspapers.

The Goughs, 8th of April 2024

Our second stay in this lovely house - luxurious quiet space. 2 visits to Holkham Hall - half term activity good but rather soggy. Excellent cafe which we would recommend. RSPB Titchwell is a favourite and thankfully we had a dry afternoon - curlew spotted.Semi-dry walk to Holkham Beach before heavy rain and sleet.Visited Norfolk Lavender for the first time in years - very good farm shop.Thankful for the log burner after a cold wet day!Enjoyed pizzas etc in the warm Yurt at Thornham. Also Eric's for fish and chips - Halloumi fries appreciated by our younger member!

The Siriwardena's, 21st of June 2023

The spacious downstairs, parking, multiple bathrooms/toilets, garden and patio space all worked well for us. Location was good. Walk to the sea was further than I'd imagined but the pub and village shop were both good. Good selection of books to read and Netflix subscription was useful for keeping the toddler entertained in the early mornings.

The Jevon's, 19th of June 2023

Very comfortable house , very well equipped and plenty of space! We will definitely return. The highlights of our stay was the amount of space on offer also the lovely sunny private garden.

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.
