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)!

The house was amazing even better than it looked in the pictures( to be honest I wanted to move in) it is in a perfect location very quiet and private. It is a lovely walk to an amazing beach which Tilly our cockapoo loved, the local pub was great very accommodating and dog friendly. The food was spot on we went back a second time. We enjoyed a day out along the coast road stopping off at some beautiful places along the way.
I would highly recommend Rosa Cottage and will most definitely be going back again later this year it is done to such a high standard with everything you need to enjoy your stay.
Thank you very much for our stay 😊
Rosa cottage in January
This excellent house is situated in a wonderful location for birdwatching, beaches and a bevy of good food stops.
Comfortable, clean, well equipped and warm Rosa is a fabulous property for friends and families, and dogs.
Loads of hot water for the three bathrooms and comfortable beds make for a very relaxing return after walking the coast in search of birds or walking the dog. The outside taps, hot and cold, make sorting out mucky pups so easy. Then cook at home or go out to the many excellent pubs, walk to the Ship Hotel in Brancaster or breakfast at the Thornham deli. The extension is brilliant for tall people, no low beam head banging cottage this. We, 6 adults, and two dogs had a fabulous time. Thank you.
Thank you so much for your kind words, we’re delighted to hear that you had such an enjoyable stay at Rosa. It’s good to know that our doggy shower is getting used, we find it really handy for our own sandy feet in the summer! Hopefully you will return to Rosa soon.
