The Hares 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

First Class. The Hares was an exceptional property, spacious and airy and comfortable. Would definitely visit again. Local area lovely, not too far from the beach, local shops and pubs in abundance.

Highly recommended. We have stayed in Brancaster at other Norfolk Hideaways properties but never at this particular bungalow. We are somewhat limited to which accommodation we can choose due to having a dog but this was superb. The property was very clean and spacious. Kitchen very well equipped should you wish to stay in and cook, beds comfortable and good sized seating in the living room. The garden was a very good size and fully enclosed for ease of mind when dog mooching about. The area was extremely quiet and close to the main north Norfolk road. Brancaster Staithe a mile further on with small shop and Hunstanton only around 15 minutes drive for bigger supermarket. Absolutely loved it here and will definitely stay again.

Comfortable accommodation in great location. The Hares is situated in a very quiet cul-de-sac with parking available on the driveway. The accommodation is spacious and well laid out, with a large enclosed garden at the back, great for dogs! The bungalow contained all we needed for an enjoyable stay, and it was lovely to be able to leave the car and walk to the marshes/beach/pub. Would definitely use again.

A very pleasant house with a large garden for sunbathing and fun with the dogs; we worried a bit about the light coloured carpeting with 2 lively dogs. enjoyed the visit and will book again.
