There’s something special about Brancaster beach. Everyone that goes there feels like it’s their own little secret getaway. For us as a family it’s wonderful. Firstly, we can get there and back in a day which is great for us landlocked Bedfordians. Secondly the beach is huge, massive in fact. When the tide is out you need to factor in a good 15 mins walk (with little kids) just to have a paddle. When the tide is in however, you’ve got one eye on the car park willing it not to flood.
There are no fairground rides, no arcade machines polluting the airwaves, just birdsong, the sound of the wind whipping over the sand dunes and the waves crashing. It really is the perfect escape. If you’ve been there yourself then you’ll understand just how special it is, and if you haven’t, get planning your trip, you can thank me later.
