From the cosy upstairs sitting room of Carpenter's Cottage you can look out over the small harbour of Brancaster Staithe and over mud flats and salt marshes in an area that is a haven for wildlife and small boats.

This former two-storey carpenter's workshop, set back from the road by a small, safely enclosed courtyard, also takes in views of Scolt Head Island, and offers very comfortable 'bijou' accommodation for two.

Writes Bryn Frank in The Good Holiday Cottage Guide: 'From Carpenters and close-by Vista Cottage, in the same ownership, you can almost reach out and touch one of the most beautiful coastlines in Britain. You can walk down to the marshes and join the Norfolk Coastal Path or (with your wellies on!) make your way indirectly towards the water'.

Like Vista Cottage, in the same ownership, Carpenters is within walking distance of local amenities, has off-road parking and has been restored in a traditional fashion, taking advantage of the original features. The cottage is warm and well equipped. There is a window seat, and an open fire that makes a delightful focal point on an autumn or winter evening.
