A stylish cottage offering reverse level accommodation for four guests, located in the coastal village of Brancaster Staithe, just as short walk from the village’s historic harbour.

Located in the pretty coastal village of Brancaster Staithe, this cottage enjoys an excellent location on the North Norfolk coast, within 10 miles of some of the region’s best loved beaches in Holkham, Hunstanton, and Wells-next-the-Sea. Although small the village is well-appointed and has everything that guests will need to have an enjoyable holiday, including a fantastic shop specialising in fresh local seafood which will no doubt be of great interest to keen cooks. For those who prefer to eat out there are two pubs in the village, both serving food. A short walk away the village harbour is a lovely place to enjoy a wander around and also offers a choice of boat trips taking visitors around the coast and out to the picturesque Scolt Head Island, home to an abundance of wildlife.

The reverse-level layout of this cottage means that on arrival, the first rooms that guests will come to are two bedrooms and a shower room offering a shower and WC. The first bedroom is a pleasant double room, whilst the second bedroom is a delightful twin room. Stairs lead from the hallway up to the first floor where the main living area is situated. This gorgeous open-plan space is a wonderfully light-filled room comprising a lounge/kitchen/diner, with the lounge area overlooking the front aspect of the property. There are two leather sofas to relax on, perhaps whilst enjoying a film on the TV/DVD or getting lost in a good book in front of the cosy wood burner. To the opposite end of the room, the kitchen/diner looks out over the marshes which lie behind the property and has double doors opening onto a Juliet balcony allowing guests to take in the fresh sea air. The dining table seats four diners, whilst the kitchen area is well-equipped with an oven, hob, microwave fridge, dishwasher, and washing machine. In the corner of the room a door leads through to the second shower room, which again offers a shower and WC.

To the rear of the property there is a small patio area with garden furniture provided, allowing guests to enjoy sundowners in the evening. There is direct access from here to the surrounding marshes, allowing guests to head out for leisurely walks, which will be of particular interest to those with an interest in wildlife and photography. There is off-road parking for one car on the driveway, with further roadside parking available just outside the cottage.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20 for up to 7 nights, £40 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20 for every week or part week thereafter.

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

We were all more than happy with everything about the cottage. This is our second visit (I was the first to comment in the visitors book). The views from the kitchen are incredible, and the layout is really well thought out. We like to self cater, and we all found everything we needed. (well, with the exception of a freezer for the ice cubes for ouRead morer gin, luckily the garage shop sells it in bags). The location, right on the Staithe is fabulous for walking. We are already planning to return. Hide

Thompsons cottage is situated on the salt marshes of Brancaster Staithe with stunning views of the tides , bird life and local shellfish catchers. A perfect location for relaxation and getting back to nature. The cottage is built in the traditional style typical to Norfolk, red brick and pebbles and stone, there are two bedrooms downstairs, two shoRead morewer rooms and and open plan living room/kitchen diner with log burner upstairs, something my husband loved to fire up in the evenings!

Beautiful cottage with a wonderful view & lovely pub next door!

Great location, views, and walks from the door. We were disappointed by the lack of equipment provided (no towels, hairdryer, freezer) given the price and what we've come to expect in self-catering properties.
