A spot on the Norfolk coast has been named one of the UK's best beaches.

The Telegraph has included Brancaster in its list of the 20 best beaches in the country.

The Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is known for its dune-backed sandy beach.

Brancaster was praised for not being "hugely touristy" with few facilities, making it never feel overcrowded.

Visitors can collect shells, fly kites, build sandcastles or walk their dogs, all without disturbing others on the beach.

There is parking available on Beach Road but it is also accessible by the Coasthopper bus or the Norfolk Coast Path.

Brancaster was recently named one of the most relaxing spots to live in Norfolk by estate agent Savills.

The only other beach in East Anglia included on the list is Walberswick in Suffolk.
