BRANCASTER STAITHE Located approximately halfway between Hunstanton and Wells-next-the-Sea on the North Norfolk Coast, Brancaster Staithe is a small coastal village, centred around the harbour, with its thriving fishing community and ideal for the sailing enthusiast. Scolt Head Island is a Nature Conservation Area, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and being only a boat trip away, depending on the tide. The island has a large breeding colony of Sandwich Terns and in winter there can be 50,000 pink-footed geese roosting on the island. Brancaster Staithe is connected to Burnham Deepdale and between the two, they have a variety of shops including a supermarket/petrol station, café, fresh fish shop, sailing school, tourist information centre and two pubs, The Jolly Sailors, and The White Horse, which is an award winning gastro pub with superb coastal views. Brancaster is justly famous for its mussels. There are many local walks around the village including Barrow Common with views over the coastline or the Norfolk Coastal Path, which runs the length of the village, along the marshes.
