About Brancaster

A historic flint building with a colourful and bright interior, set alongside the Norfolk Coast Path.

Brancaster is a sprawling bunkhouse located in a Grade II listed flint dwelling situated in the stunning harbour of Brancaster Staithe. 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, including Scott Head Island and Holkham, are just a stone’s throw away. 

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

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
