If you dream of escaping to the coast and enjoy such pleasures as swimming, sailing, good food and walking, then this rather cute Scandi-inspired modern beach cottage is sure to deliver with its flint and pebble exterior and enviable location in the sought-after village of Brancaster Staithe, just a pebble’s throw from the saltmarsh and coastal path.
This little coastal gem is the perfect cosy retreat to relax with the family, although couples will also appreciate its location, which is just a minutes' walk from the renowned White Horse hotel/restaurant, considered of one of the finest places to eat along the coast, where views from the sun terrace and conservatory restaurant are simply spectacular. Head to the hotel's rear terrace for breakfast or enjoy a sundowner with tapas as the sun sets to the west.
