About The Dial House (formerly Brancaster Activity Centre)A historic flint building with a colourful and bright interior sleeping up to 22, this is an ideal place to celebrate a large family get together.
With the tidal harbour of Brancaster Staithe and 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, cycling and more. There are historic houses within driving distance and many soft sandy 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.
