Really quiet beach in winter for dog walking. In fact you almost have the place to yourself! Parking next to beach and really reasonable as well as clean toilets. If you want to avoid the crowds on the more popular beaches on the north Norfolk...More

What's more to like...bracing air, brilliant sunshine and blue sky. Beautiful beach which is big enough to accommodate lots of people and you can take the dog. We had mixed age range of kids and there is something for everyone.

Brancaster Bay is a lovely place to spend the afternoon, mostly dog friendly. It’s not as pleasant as Wells or Holkham Bay but still lovely. There are toilets and a drink / food kiosk.

I would say most definitely not ! It would almost certainly be frowned upon. (who wants smelly smoke next to them anyway)

Sorry I do not know & did not see anyone riding during our visit. Looking at the size of the beach I can not see why it would not be OK. There is a golf club at the entrance to the beach perhaps the y could help?
