Dolphin Cottage

If you dream of escaping to the coast and enjoy such pleasures as swimming, sailing, good food and walking, then this rather cute Scandi-inspired modern beach cottage is sure to deliver with its flint and pebble exterior and enviable location in the sought-after village of Brancaster Staithe, just a pebble’s throw from the saltmarsh and coastal path.

This little coastal gem is the perfect cosy retreat to relax with the family, although couples will also appreciate its location, which is just a minutes' walk from the renowned White Horse hotel/restaurant, considered of one of the finest places to eat along the coast, where views from the sun terrace and conservatory restaurant are simply spectacular. Head to the hotel's rear terrace for breakfast or enjoy a sundowner with tapas as the sun sets to the west.

Dolphin Cottage has its own private access to the marsh and is just a short boat ride to the stunningly beautiful and remote Scolt Head Island, which you can visit by taking a boat trip from Brancaster Staithe with a local company, Branta Cruises who are just a few doors down from the cottage.

Styled with the sea in mind, the cottage features painted floorboards and tasteful seaside inspired furnishings. Downstairs you will find a sunny sitting room with comfy sofas and an open fire for cosy evenings in; a dining room and a small modern and well-equipped kitchen with a door that literally leads you right down to the coastal path, plus there's a large bathroom with feature roll-top bath. Upstairs you'll find three bedrooms; a double, twin and a smaller room with a bunk beds, so perfect for children or three couples. Unusually for Brancaster Staithe there is off-road parking for one car to the rear of the cottage. A small south-facing front garden with bench allows you to enjoy the sunshine all day, while there is also a bench at the end of the private footpath which leads down to the waters edge.
