Woodpeckers is the end cottage of a row of four former dwellings for the wood yard workers in a conservation area. The cottage is set back from the main A149, separated by a large private car park. The Brancaster village Hall (PE31 8AA) is near by, which incorporates the village DELI shop and Post Office in addition to the extensive Bar 71 facilities with a guest Wi-Fi hub. The adjacent large village recreation field, includes a well equipped children's play area and a fee paying hard tennis court..
The Titchwell RSPB reserve is just over a mile away, and the Nationally acclaimed Brancaster beach is within reasonable walking distance. The Norfolk Coastal path along the edge of the marshes is currently closed to allow essential maintenance work to the board walk surface, and leads to the popular Brancaster Staithe Sailing Club.
The Ship Hotel is only five minutes walk from the cottage, in addition to good food it also has a Wi-Fi hub for guests.
The Lynx Coastliner Bus service from King's Lynn and Hunstanton passes the cottage regularly throughout the day with two bus stops very nearby for Burnham Market, Holkham beach and Wells-next- the- sea. The Sanders Coasthopper Bus service connects at Wells-next-the-sea for onward travel to Blakeney, Cley-next-Sea, Sheringham and Cromer. Sandringham can be reached by bus using a Lynx Coastliner bus service from Hunstanton towards King's Lynn. Houghton Hall is only a car ride away as are also several National Trust properties including Blickling Hall, Felbrig and Oxboro Hall.
Brancaster beach which is managed by the National Trust is a vast expanse of sand at low tide, with access next to the Royal West Norfolk Golf Club. The extensive car park close to the beach with a car parking ticket machine, is at the end of the Beach Road from Brancaster village. This road does flood with sea water on very high tides and care should be exercised. Access is also by a wide hard footpath along the top of the sea bank bordering the Beach Road. Extensive views of the marshes on both sides of the footpath make this a popular walk for both holiday visitors and bird watchers.
