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.

Another lovely break in Sea Wood this May for our annual meet-up with friends from the UK and Australia. The house is bright, spacious, well equipped and comfortable. The weather was good. We walked and explored the North Norfolk coast and had excellent food both in the pubs in the village and the surrounding area. Will be back next May.

The Hickeys , 22nd of May 2024

Lovely property in a great part of Norfolk, our family of 10 have now stayed here twice and we have already booked for next year .Very clean and well maintained, we would recommend this to anyone. It is such a large house with a very large garden which is very useful as we have 4 children who are in our party between 4 and 7 years old.

The Curtis's, 20th of May 2024

We had a wonderful stay at Sea Wood. 6 adults, 3 children and 2 dogs. Plenty of space for all of us. A super garden for the children and dogs. House is very well equipped. it was great to be able to walk to 2 pubs, a well stocked supermarket, a cafe for breakfast and access to the coastal path. Loved the huge beaches and the forest at Wells/Holkham An easy drive to Wells and Holkham. We were lucky enough to be there for the spring fair at Holkham and were able to try and buy local produce. We loved the beaches at Wells & Holkham but I think our favourite was Brancaster beach which was not as busy as the other two. If the tide is high road access might be difficult but it is walkable from the house (maybe not for young children though). We had a great meal at the Jolly Sailor and a lovely breakfast at Deepdale Cafe. We also visited Burnham Market and Hunstanton. The children also had a day trip to Bewilderwood which they loved. Where ever we went everyone was very friendly and helpful.

The Hollamby's, 17th of April 2024

A thoroughly enjoyable week over Easter with all the family. The house is in a great location opposite the White Horse and within easy reach of great beaches (weather could have been better!) The house is very well equipped. Thank you. Being with all the family over Easter. Walking on Holkham and Brancaster Beaches. Making bread and butter at Bircham Mill. Taking the grandchildren on the bus to the Sea Life Centre in Hunstanton.

The Watkin's, 11th of April 2024

A spacious family home which was perfect for our extended family of 10 and 3 dogs. A most enjoyable stay in a perfect location. The comfortable bedrooms with super king beds.

The family had a very enjoyable Christmas holiday at Sea Wood.

Cars may only be charged if there is an EV charging point fitted at the property.
