The Old Butcher's Shop holiday home details

The Old Butcher’s Shop is a stylish luxury cottage, brimming with country charm. Being only a 10 minute drive to the beautiful beach at Brancaster, it offers a relaxing retreat whatever time of year you choose to visit.

The house provides a very sociable space for all to enjoy with a large sitting area with open fire, a large eat-in kitchen, separate dining room and four beautifully appointed bedrooms. The master double bedroom boasts an en-suite with shower room and there are three other bedrooms; a double bedroom upstairs and two twins on the ground floor, where you'll also find a large family bathroom with separate shower. To the rear of the house is a delightful walled garden with outdoor dining area, lawn and access to the games room with a table tennis table.

Sitting in the pretty village of Docking, this beautiful home away from home is perfectly located for country and coastal exploration. You can look forward to days spent at the local nature reserves, stately homes and gardens, including HM The Queen’s country residence at Sandringham or maybe spending the day on the various sandy beaches which make this coastline so endearing. Also close by is the uber-chic Burnham Market, with its fabulous restaurants, galleries and antique shops.

  • Just a mile down the road (or a 40 minute walk along the coast path) from Brancaster Beach, discover Brancaster Staithe Harbour with its sailing facilities and fabulous fresh fish stalls, plus two very different pub/restaurants; family-friendly The Jolly Sailors or the more sophisticated White Horse which boasts fine views over the marsh towards Scolt Head Island.
  • Trendy Burnham Market is only a short drive away too, where you'll find some wonderful independent shops and restaurants.
  • Head to nearby Stanhoe to enjoy a fabulous meal at The Duck Inn (the Sunday roasts are particularly good) or drive a little further afield to discover Holkham Hall and beach, Wells-next-the-Sea and Holt.
  • Docking is great for cycling and the National Cycle Route No.1 passes through the village.
  • For the more adventurous, head to Hunstanton and enjoy the watersports on offer, or on a windy day, nothing is better than flying a kite on Brancaster beach.
  • With the whole of the North Norfolk coast in easy reach you can easily get to Cromer, where you will be rewarded with one of the best end of pier shows, excellent fish and chips and a fabulous drive through some of the prettiest of villages in East Anglia.
