Blackhorse Cottage is positioned centrally in the beautiful North Norfolk village of Brancaster Staithe in the heart of a Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Once a busy port for sailing ships carrying coal and grain for what was said to be the largest malt house in England, a thriving fishing industry still exists with the harbour being a popular location for pleasure craft. The famed Norfolk Coastal Path runs past the rear of the Cottage garden providing beautiful walks with breathtaking views of the Harbour and Scolt Head Island.and is a short stroll to either the Whitehorse or Jolly Sailors Pubs.
The Harbour and Sailing Club are a short walk and can be reached by the Coastal Path or the High Street. Located opposite is the Village Hall which regularly hosts art and photographic exhibitions and has 2 hard tennis courts which can be hired for a small fee.
There are 2 pubs within a short stroll of Blackhorse Cottage. The White Horse and the Jolly Sailors are both fantastic establishments serving local produce and a wide selection of beers, ales and wines.
