Holkham Holiday Cottages

Holkham can be found along the coast road between Wells-next-the-Sea and Burnham Overy Staithe and is very much dominated by the magnificent stately home there, Holkham Hall. This is one of the principal Palladian houses of England and it sits in an attractive park with a herd of fallow deer (much like Houghton Hall near King’s Lynn). The estate also has numerous monuments, a lake and its own church; both the hall and the park are open to the public. Kett have a number of Holkham holiday cottages suitable as a base to explore the surrounding area.

As well as the grand house, our Holkham holiday cottages allow you to explore its famous beach, most notably featured in last scene of the film ‘Shakespeare in Love’ where Gwyneth Paltrow is seen walking along the sand on her own towards the pine trees. Opposite The Victoria Hotel (named for Queen Victoria) is Lady Anne’s drive which crosses the salt marshes, to reach the beach which is fringed by pine woods and sand dunes. You could quite easily spend an entire day of your holiday here. The marshes are known for their population of pink-footed geese and the area has been designated as a National Nature Reserve.
