Property details

Lifeboat Cottage is a picturesque 18th century flint cottage situated in a quiet side road in the heart of Brancaster, within twenty minutes walk to the beach.

In a former life it was the games room to the pub (now closed), and the cottage has recently undergone a refurbishment which includes a bespoke kitchen, new carpets downstairs and redecoration. The house is thoughtfully furnished with some period furniture, original artworks and pretty extra touches making it a very comfortable place to stay.

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

An ideal location for great walking and wildlife watching. While the cottage is small it has everything you'll need for your stay and the beds are really comfortable. Would recommend it!

We had a lovely stay at Lifeboat Cottage. It was cosy and had everything you could possibly need, in fact "home from home". Close to the beach with lots of interesting places to visit and a good choice of restaurants which are not too far away. Would not hesitate to recommend.

Great place to walk to the beach and coastal footpath. Cottage has everything you need with a really sweet little seating area outside which is a real sun trap.

Been to Norfolk before many times but never stayed in Brancaster - hope to come here again before long. Lovely spot, comfortable cottage and very clean! Very convenient for coast and beaches.

Just returned from an extremely memorable week staying in Brancaster and that was in part due to Lifeboat Cottage! The accommodation was very comfortable and well equipped and a perfect base to walk The Norfolk Coastal Path. Thank you so much, my spirit is still out on those marshes!!
