Capable of housing up to 48 guests, or 22 if you decide to opt for just half the property, Brancaster is the ideal place to celebrate a large family get together.

With the North Norfolk coast on your doorstep you can expect stunning views of the marshes and sea beyond. Of course this part of the country is famous for the number of rare birds that stop in on annual migrations and some of the UK’s best nature reserves are just a stone’s throw away. You’ll also be in the perfect location for activities such as sailing, walking, kites surfing and more. There are historic houses within driving distance and many stunning beaches along the coastline, including Brancaster Beach just a few miles down the road.

Inland, explore some of Norfolk’s beautiful flint villages and discover Norwich, the county’s most populated city, with its medieval architecture, beautiful cathedral, independent shops and countless pubs, cafes and restaurants.
