Boasting stunning decor and spacious rooms, this former pub is the perfect home from home for memorable get together with friends or family.

As its name suggests, Dry Lion is a former village pub which dates back to Georgian times. After extensive and sympathetic refurbishment, it's now a stylish and presentable family home - and soon to be your home away from home. Many original features have been retained to create a spacious, comfortable holiday let year-round. With five bedrooms, plus a spacious sitting room and a dining room with seating for ten, it's a unique find that offers the perfect spot for a group holiday, either with friends or the whole family.

This property is ideally situated in the village of Brancaster and is perfect for beach days, sailing trips, and even golf. Its location is also great for sightseeing, with the coastal path running past the village providing ample opportunity for exploring.

Why not head to King's Lynn (25 miles) and discover the history, shopping, and entertainment the town offers? Wander down cobbled lanes to the harbour, or perhaps even take in a guided tour. No visit to the area is complete without a trip to Burnham Market, though. Just 5 miles from Brancaster, you'll find the hub of trendy shops and eateries that make the town infamous.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

  • Bed linen and towels included
  • Wi-Fi included
  • Pub and village shop within 1 mile

Only 1 mile from the beach, it'll be hard to resist sunny days or blustery walks on the sand. Pack a blanket, flask and bucket and spade and revive old-fashioned family fun. As you stroll barefoot along the beach, keep your eyes peeled for the wreck of the SS Vina, a military ship used by the RAF as target practice before the Normandy landings, which accidentally sank in 1944! To refuel, the village pub is 1.5 miles away and in winter there is a great Christmas market. For more fresh air, pick up the Norfolk Coast Path or to head into town, drive 7 miles to Hunstanton.

Delightful rooms downstairs, particularly the living room. Good kitchen leading directly to dining area. Upstairs there is one good double bedroom, and an acceptable twin bedded room. Apart from that, the three other bedrooms are tiny and crammed with bunk beds. - For youth only!

Close to marshes .. lovely location. Good size house and nice spacious living areas downstairs. Visitors need to bring own toilet paper, dishwasher tabs, basic cleaning equipment, logs for wood burner, as just a very small supply provided.

The Dry Lion is in a good location for the beach, although the road directly outside is noisy. The stairs are VERY steep, so perhaps not suitable for those folks less steady on their feet. The cottage is very well equipped for those wanting to cook or BBQ, and the bedrooms are well furnished and comfortable. The lounge and dining room are great spaRead moreces for hanging out with friends and family. The garden was perfect for our dog to mooch about and sunbathe in. We had a lovely stay here. Hide

Nice character cottage in village setting. Excellent pub/restaurant within 300 metres. Very well fitted out in terms of crockery, glasses, pots/pans etc. Parking to rear and side. Log burner in living room very cosy. Good weekend.

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
