About Caroline

I am a mother of 3 children, aged 15, 14 and 13 and live in Rutland.

Caroline purchased this house in 2005

Why Caroline chose Brancaster

The Hermitage is a much loved family home where we have had many happy times with friends and family. It is fun in the summer and cosy and warm in the winter. An old fashioned English seaside holiday cottage!

What makes this house unique

The Hermitage is within walking or cycling distance to the beach so the whole family can enjoy time together or wander home at their leisure. We love the local pubs and are spoilt by having the lovely Georgian town of Burnham Market a short drive away. Our bedrooms offer views of Brancaster marsh on one side and pretty red Norfolk roofs on the other.

A fantastic house to stay in. Many thanks.

Perfect clean tidy warm

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of birdwatching friends.

The property is perfectly placed with a lovely pub at the end of the road for breakfast and dinner.

And the marshes very close by was great.

Thank you so much for perfect weekend.

Looking forward to coming back next year.

Lovely house and fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

We all loved this house and it suited our party of 6 adults and 2 children. Very spacious and comfortable.

We loved the Christmas decorations!

Our only negative would be the kitchen. It needs a little TLC. The drawers practically fall out.

Thank you for a lovely stay.

Owner's Response: Dear Katie Thank you very much for taking the time to write your review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your family Christmas at The Hermitage. We would love a brand new kitchen - if only funds were to permit!!! In the meantime we have tried to ensure that the existing kitchen is clean and well equipped with new appliances (I have replaced the kettle you mentioned with a new one to match the Smeg toaster.) We host many families with young children and dogs and we have always felt with our own family that, although old fashioned, the kitchen is practical and somewhat cosy with its bright red AGA! Thank you for your thoughts on the drawers, you're right they could cause a problem and I will see if I can improve the mechanism. Best wishes and thank you again for choosing The Hermitage for your Christmas holiday. Caroline

Relaxing atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay this weekend at the Hermitage house in Brancaster. Warm and cosy with plenty of space. The enclosed garden was ideal for our friendly old terriers. I even managed a meal in the aga ,it's been a good few years since I cooked in one but loved it.

Close to the beach ,some great wildlife and not forgetting a short walk away from the Ship with great food and beer.

Owner's Response: Dear Nicki Thank you very much for taking the time to write your kind review - I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at The Hermitage. The house is indeed cosy in the winter months, and we would love it if you could perhaps return in the Spring or Summer to see the house, the village and the surrounding beach and countryside in the sunshine!! Meantime, best wishes and thank you again. Caroline

Lovely property, spacious yet cosy.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing break and really enjoyed staying at The Hermitage. The accommodation was well presented and we all found the house very welcoming.

Excellent super and breakfast at The Ship hotel in Brancaster just a few steps up the road.

We saw the seals on the beach and blew the cobwebs away walking to Brancaster Staithe on the boardwalk footpath through the salt marsh.

We'd all definitely like to return.

Perfect location in a beautiful house.

  • 5 of 5

We were in Norfolk to walk so with the Coastal Path in one direction and the bus stop near by Brancaster was perfect. We loved the house and will visit again if possible.

Warm cozy and close to the beach

Lovely large house, very comfortable and very dog friendly with a perfect walled garden. The Ship has good food, and is a perfect base for visiting the Norfolk coast

Car: recommended

Situated in the picturesque village of Brancaster on Norfolk's Royal Coast, part of the Norfolk's 93 mile coastline, this area boasts glorious countryside; stunning wide, sandy beaches stretching as far as the eye can see; pretty villages along the coast and inland; pubs, restaurants, boutique hotels and exclusive shops. Heaven for children, adults and especially dogs there is something for all the family. Explore Holkham Beach with its miles of windswept sands backed by scented pine forests where the young Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret would holiday in peace. Walk along to Wells-next-the-Sea and take in the coloured beach huts which mark the transition from beach to pine forest, then soak up the atmosphere of this old fashioned seaside town where family chandleries sit next to boutique hotels. Then along to Cromer and the excitement of its pier and the Pavilion Theatre. And if your stay permits there are always the beaches of West Runton, Sheringham, Mundesley, Holme and at the end of the day a visit to Sunny Hunny, or Hunstanton, New and Old, a lovely seaside town with something for all the family.
