Driftwood Cottage holiday cottage location

Surrounding local area

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.

Guest reviews

Long winter weekend. We stayed at Driftwood Cottage for a long weekend in February. The Cottage is well appointed and well placed to walk to Brancaster beach and the The Ship hotel, with driveway parking a huge bonus as you can pull up outside the property on arrival. We loved the open plan layout downstairs making it a sociable space whilst you cook etc. Be aware however that both bedrooms are very cosy with little room to do more than side step round the end of the bed, which may not suit the less mobile or children. The petrol station in nearby Burnham Deepdale provided a decent sized store to pick up essentials.

Brand new newbuild cottage in an ideal location.

We were blessed with exceptional weather for mid October, but even apart from that Driftwood Cottage was ideally located on the main road in Brancaster to walk to the local superb beach, 2 minutes from The Jolly Sailor with excellent food, the post office in the 71 Club opposite, Nisa store at Burnham Deepdale less than 10 minutes drive for essentials, and short drives in either direction to north Norfolk coast local beauty spots on the A149. Driftwood Cottage was spotless, modern, warm and comfortably furnished - nothing not to like!

Our stay at Driftwood Cottage was fantastic. The cottage was well equipped and had everything and more for our stay. The garden was perfect to relax in after a day out. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It is in a perfect location, less than a mile to Bancaster beach. Brancaster beach is perfect, easily accessible and great for families as only a very short walk from the car park. We will definitely stay again and recommend it.

Smart, modern, clean and functional space. Enough room for a family of four. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the cottage.
