Outside there's a fully enclosed courtyard garden which is a real sun-trap and the advantage of private off-street parking for three cars.

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.

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

Guest reviews

Very comfortable house in great location. Day on Brancaster beach - what more could a 6 yr old grandson want - jumping waves/flying kite and grandpa burying his legs in the sand. A very comfortable house - great views. Loved access to park and local shop. Everything we needed for a happy week in Norfolk.

The Mackman's, 7th of August 2023

This is a lovely house. Very quiet and private and a lovely sized driveway. Great attention to detail. Not your average rental. No expense has been spared to make this house comfortable. For me it was the bed and bedding that made our stay so comfortable. Luxury bed and luxury bedding. I even took note of the labels so I could order myself some when I got home. Couldn't fault this property.

It was great to walk out to the coastal path and Brancaster beach!

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.
