The stunning beaches at Brancaster, Holme-next-the-sea and Old Hunstanton are all within easy reach. The pretty harbour village of Brancaster Staithe is approximately two miles away, where you will find locally caught fish and shellfish at The Fish Shed, a supermarket, café, petrol station, retail outlets, seasonal pop-up shops and two pubs serving good food. The bustling Georgian village of Burnham Market is about three miles away.
Brancaster is known for its simply stunning beach. It stretches for miles backed by gentle sand dunes and the famous links golf course of The Royal West Norfolk Golf Club. Seals bask on the creek edges and children can safely paddle in the tidal lagoons. The tide goes out a long way revealing the shipwreck of the S S Vina (beware of strong tides and do not venture out!) The sand is perfect for sandcastles and picnics. Kite surfers provide exciting entertainment on windy days. Parking is a few yards from the beach and anyone who walks that little bit further will be rewarded with their own private stretch of sand! The Ship public house has recently been reopened under Chris Couborough The Flying Kiwi Chef to great reviews. Traditional icecream and lollies can be had from the booth on the beach! Wildlife along the coast is abundant and accessible, Marsh Harriers wheel overhead along with Avocets, Oyster Catchers and Terns. A trip would not be complete without tasting the famous mussels, in season when there is an 'R' in the month.
