The Lifeboat House 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 ice cream 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

Tovely comfortable, well equipped house. Furnished appropriately for a holiday let, good configuration of beds in each bedroom. Nice having three bathrooms. Excellent location, 3 min walk to a great pub, 15 min walk to beautiful beach. We were 3 generations in one house and it worked beautifully.

We know the Norfolk Coast really well and wanted to find the perfect place to celebrate my parents Wedding Anniversary - and we certainly found it here at Lifeboat House. The attention to detail is amazing, the decor and furniture is stunning and the house is equipped with everything you need. We enjoyed fantastic dog walks along Brancaster beach , enjoyed a delicious meal at The Ship and experienced the wonders of Burnham Market. An absolutely amazing weekend spent in your fabulous house. Thank you.

We had a fabulous time at Lifeboat House - really well set out for our young children and it felt like being in our own home. Fabulous location - opposite the park and shop - it was a perfect house for our holiday and the weather was incredible!
