Self-catering holiday accommodation in Brancaster
Life in Brancaster centres around its thriving harbour and the maritime community that has built up here. Mussels are a local speciality so ensure you have a taste during an evening meal out. Dig up sand on Brancaster Beach to create a moat and allow lapping waves to surround your sandcastle. Try your hand at sea kayaking, sailing or flying kites, and spot the remains of an old shipwreck when the tide is out. This shoreline is part of the Brancaster Estate which encompasses beach, Brancaster Staithe Harbour and the site of a Branodunum Roman Fort built during the 3rd century.
Find the perfect holiday cottage for a break by the Norfolk coast. The family-friendly stretch of sand backs onto a golf club where you can play surrounded by stunning seaside panorama. The Norfolk Coast Path runs through town from which you can take in stunning views of the saltmarsh and Scolt Head Island. A ferry can take you from the harbour out to explore this island during summer months. Either side of Brancaster sit the popular villages of Hunstanton and Wells-Next-the-Sea, which you can reach via the magnificent Holkham Hall. With plenty of self-catering accommodation scattered throughout the area, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
