Nestled in a prime position within the sought after village of Brancaster, this holiday property provides the perfect accommodation for discerning guests. At just ½ mile from beautiful Brancaster beach, Powells Yard is a light and airy property, and is very well positioned to explore all that the area has to offer. Standing detached, the property also has a spacious rear garden and an outdoor seating area. There is ample parking for guests with spaces for four cars on site and additional parking in the village by the church.
Nearby, visitors can find excellent bird watching and walking opportunities within National Trust marshes and along coastal pathways, along with a sailing club and a golf course. Also available from the harbour is water skiing, windsurfing and sailing, with courses available for all ages and ranges of abilities. Having worked up an appetite, foodies will be spoilt for choice, with restaurants and gastro pubs aplenty, many of which offer the catch of the day. The whole coastline is famous for its uncrowded sandy beaches, which offer sunbathing activities in high season and fabulous bracing walks year round. There are also a series of nature reserves on the doorstep, including RSPB managed Titchwell Marsh, with lagoons providing a home to nesting birds such as marsh harriers, bitterns and avocets. There are also boat trips available to Scolt Head from the pretty harbour at Brancaster Staithe.
There are many National Trust properties and stately homes to visit too, including Houghton Hall, Holkham Hall, a fine mansion close to Holkham Beach where Shakespeare In Love was filmed, and Sandringham Estate, which is open to the public when the Royals are not in residence. For more traditional seaside fun, head to Hunstanton with its beach, which really does seem to stretch for miles, trips out out to see the seals, a Sea Life Centre and fun fair. In the other direction, and in sharp contrast, lies the quaint quay resort of Wells-next-the-Sea with its artisan shops and tea rooms. The bustling town of Burnham Market is just 5 minutes away, with antique shops and boutiques aplenty. Beach ½ mile. Shop ¼ mile, pub 200 yards.
