Titchwell is most well known for the RSPB nature reserve, an important habitat of tidal lagoons and saltwater marshlands, making it a twitchers paradise. Beyond there is an amazing quiet sandy beach with low dunes and a vast expanse of golden sands. Often pretty deserted you can see the sand extending for what seems like miles. The walk to the beach through the nature reserve is teeming with wildlife and you cannot help but feel immersed in the landscape.


The RSPB Nature reserve has a Visitors Centre, three bird hides, a sea watching platform, car park and cafe. Also home to two superb restaurants: Titchwell Manor for fine dining in style along the coastal road and Briarfields with stunning coastal views providing the best seasonal produce for a great dining experience. At the heart of the village is an obelisk cross which was a marker point for pilgrims and travellers. The village church St Mary’s dates from the 11th century and features a round tower (one of Norfolk’s 124 round towers) with small lead steeple. With the Coastal Hopper bus passing through the village, you can take a beautiful walk along the coastal path and when your legs are weary make your way back by bus.


The site of the nature reserve was a former chalk pit, which is believed to first be used by the Romans. The area then became a bit of a rubbish dump and after outcry from the public Norfolk County Council cleared the site and planted trees and shrubs creating a mini reserve.


Titchwell village is a superb location nestled between the coastal villages of Brancaster with its family friendly beach and the popular Thornham village which enjoys lovely eateries, deli and the Drove Orchard farm shop with its independent shops on site. Further along the coast is Brancaster Staithe where you can hear the clink of boat masts a pleasant sound for any keen sailors. There is a sailing school and also two great pubs to relax in after a day on the coast. If you like a spot of perusing the shops then pop into Burnham Market where you can find homestyle and fashion shops as well as other little independents bakers, butchers and delis.

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.
