Property code: NCC11

This charming, light and cosy cottage is ideally situated in a tranquil spot close to the heart of a thriving Georgian market town, making it a perfect base for exploring the Norfolk countryside.

A lovingly updated traditional cottage, this property offers a comfortable and stylish place for four guests to enjoy a break in the attractive Norfolk town of Holt. On the ground floor the lounge is a beautifully light-filled space, whilst the kitchen/diner is another generously-sized room with a good range of equipment. Outside a garden path leads from the house to a sunny patio area which is ideal for al fresco dining during the summer months.

Situated within 0.5 miles of Holt town centre, this property is perfectly situated for popping into town for a browse around the shops and a bite to eat in one of the numerous independent restaurants which can be found on the town’s elegant Georgian streets. A mile from the property’s front door, meanwhile, the handsome steam trains of the North Norfolk Railway Company run north to the coastal village of Weybourne and onto the seaside town of Sheraton 6 miles away: a delightful day out.

Holt enjoys a fantastic location in rural North Norfolk, surrounded by pretty villages and flat countryside which is perfect for walking and cycling, and yet only 4 miles from the coast. Head 10 miles east to the traditional seaside resort of Cromer and enjoy a day on the sandy beach, lunching at one of the seafood restaurants, perhaps ending the day with a show at the end-of-pier theatre. Or maybe you’d prefer a day at the unspoilt beach at Holkham Bay (16 miles): a vast stretch of sandy which is surely one of the most beautiful in the country.

Very nice cottage just a 10 minute walk to the town. Spotlessly clean and nicely presented. We really enjoyed our stay.

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
