Find cottages in HoltVisit Holt

Holt is a beautiful Georgian market town on the North Norfolk coast; an area of outstanding natural beauty with some of the cleanest beaches in the UK. This lovely village lies very close to the coast with Sheringham and Cromer a short distance to the east and the beautiful north Norfolk coast stretching away to the west.

The town, which can easily be explored on foot, is located on wooded high ground, and its name is believed to come from the Anglo-Saxon word for woodland. Most of the original medieval town was destroyed in a fire in 1708, and all but the church was rebuilt in Georgian style, the dominant style of the day. The Norman church was repaired and retained.

Visit the Holt War Memorial and the pineapple-topped obelisk and take a stroll around the country Park, Holt Hall and Estate, Holt Lowes or Spout Hills. Holt Country Park, situated a short walk from the town, is a beautiful native broadleaf and Scots Pine woodland, which supports a variety of flora and fauna. Holt Lowes, an area of heathland to the south of Holt, is also an important wildlife area. The 'Poppy Line' of the preserved North Norfolk Railway has a terminus just outside the town.

There are numerous antique shops in the town. Holt Summer festival, a week-long arts festival, runs in July. The town centre is beautifully decorated and lit up during Christmas, and the lights are believed to be the best in the country.

The nearby coast has many beautiful beaches. Morston and Blakeney are closest, with the larger resorts of Cromer and Sheringham a slightly further drive along the coast. Birdwatching, walking, driving along the scenic coast road and sampling the local seafood are among the activities available along the coast.

Check out Holt holiday cottages for great accommodation in the area, and see for yourself what this beautiful area of Norfolk is all about.

"A perfect rural retreat - rustic, comfortable homes surrounded by woodland and nature reserves..."

Tucked away on the edge of the historic Georgian market town of Holt, situated just a few miles inland from the North Norfolk Coast with its wealth of sandy beaches, RSPB nature and bird reserves, these converted holiday barns (refs CWT and CXC) make perfect retreats for discerning larger family groups, and offer spacious and comfortable accommodation boasting beamed interiors, wood-burning stove, limestone floors, en-suite bathroom facilities to most bedrooms and well-equipped farmhouse kitchens with granite work surfaces.
Situated within landscaped grounds with an unfenced natural wildlife pond, they are within walking distance of Holt market place, with its many very attractive buildings and the back streets leading to courtyards with their cafés and plenty of shops to enjoy. The town is served by a unique horse drawn coach service known as ‘The Holt Flyer’ connecting the railway station to the town, which is about three quarters of a mile away, at Kelling. The North Norfolk Railway (the Poppy Line) runs along the Norfolk coast onto Sheringham. Holt Lowes is within a few minutes’ drive or 30 minutes’ walk away and has been recognised as an outstanding site for wildlife. It is designated as an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and as an SAC (Special Area of Conservation). Holt Country Park, covering more than 200 acres of woodland and heathland is a similar distance away. It is made up of woodland dominated with Scots pine and native broadleaves and is home to abundant wildlife goldcrests, greater spotted woodpeckers, emperor dragonflies and deer. Excellent walking and cycling can be enjoyed from the doorstep and the property is ideally placed for bird watching with RSPB nature and bird reserves. The North Norfolk Coastal Path offers excellent walking and rambling opportunities. One of the routes is designed for ease of use by the less mobile or for families with pushchairs. Interesting features within the park include a totem pole, carved stile, play area and viewing tower. There are many stately homes in the area which merit a visit. These include Holkham Hall (an 18th-century country house located adjacent to the village of Holkham, constructed in the Palladian style) and Houghton Hall (residence of Great Britain’s first Prime Minister, Sir Robert Walpole) with magnificent interiors. There are also NT properties Blickling Hall and Felbrigg Hall as well as Sheringham Park, Walsingham Shrine and Priory ruins which offer interesting day trips. A half hour’s drive away is the city of Norwich with excellent shopping, restaurants, cathedral, castle, theatre, cinema, pubs, cafés and weekly markets and the famous Norfolk Broads.
