Cottage in Brancaster, Norfolk - Walking distance to Pub, Restaurant, Beach, Golf Course, Child & Dog Friendly
About Carolyn Overton
We purchased Rosa Cottage in November 2004. After 13 years of happy guests, 526 bookings and lots of repeat visitors who return year after year we decided that Rosa was ready for a makeover which was carried out over the winter of 2017/18. We now have a home with the real "wow" factor (Our first guests words, not ours)!

Why Carolyn Overton chose Brancaster
For those who know Brancaster you will know why we have chosen this seaside village as your weekend or holiday retreat, for those who don't it's time you found out! Rosa Cottage in Brancaster is peaceful and private but not isolated and is the perfect holiday home for couples or families. It sleeps eight comfortably. We invite you to share it with us. If, like us, you enjoy a lovely beach, great walking, fine dining, good pub lunches and attractive villages you will enjoy visiting our Norfolk home. If you enjoy sailing and golf it is all on your doorstep. Not to mention a little shopping trip just up the road to the delightful village of Burnham Market.

We had a fantastic weekend at this property, the location is ideal and the facilities are great. Lovely weekend break in a beautiful property.
Modern and welcoming!
Three generations had a very peaceful break in a lovely area of Norfolk. The house had everything to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable with local walks and easy access to many other well known places just a short drive away.
Lovely short break
We were very impressed with the high standard of this stunning property. Spotlessly clean with everything we needed for our stay. It’s located at the end of a very quiet road and overlooks fields. Brancaster is in a lovely part of North Norfolk with the attraction of miles of sandy beaches. We can recommend The Jolly Sailors pub for meals, the Brancaster mussels were very tasty.
We would certainly recommend Rosa Cottage as a great place to stay.
Thank you for giving us such a great review and we're delighted that you enjoyed your stay.
Hopefully you will return again in the future.

Amazing house with everything you need for all the family within a superb location.
Superb house, beautifully decorated with a great feel and comfortable throughout for families. We had 8 of us staying and it was the perfect house and location for us to go for walks to the beach, into Brancaster. Also travelled to Thornham, Burnham Market, Wells on Sea to name but a few. Everything is accessible within 20 minutes. The owner was lovely and communicative from start to finish, offering excellent advice, directions and instructions. We will be back 100% with friends and family in the future.
Thank you so much for a great review, it means so much to us that our guests enjoy their stay. We look forward to welcoming you all back at Rosa in the future. Carolyn & Steve Overton
