Treat your partner or spouse to an enchanting stay within the grounds of a grand, Palladian, Norfolk mansion house. This exquisite retreat nestles within a folly on the celebrated Holkham Estate. Offering one-bedroom, studio-style accommodation, the single-storey abode welcomes two guests plus their four-legged friends. With a wood burner to warm yourselves beside after autumn and winter walks and a lawned garden for summer relaxation, it makes a perfect bolthole for anyone seeking, serenity, seclusion and somewhere truly unique to stay.

Tear yourselves away from your picturesque, verdant surroundings and enter to discover airy, elegant accommodation. The main room is a lounge/kitchen/diner/bedroom, where you can light the wood burner, go for an evening walk then return to snuggle up in front of your favourite TV programme together before laying your heads on your pillows for a sumptuous night’s sleep in your king-size bed. There is an en-suite shower room next to the bedroom area. Take your morning coffee out into the sunshine of the lawned garden and relax out here too on balmy Norfolk evenings. There is parking for one car at this cottage.

Make forays into Burnham Market, 5.5 miles away, to dine out in gastro pubs, stock up on local produce and soak up the atmosphere of the fashionable village.

The cottage was in a perfect location and we were delighted with our choice. The goody bag was a nice touch but we would have preferred basics like milk, bread and butter as there are no shops in the immediate surroundings and frustrating if you arrive late. One loo roll (poor quality) was not enough for 3 nights. We had to wash our dishes outsideRead more as the shower and loo areas are tiny and this isn't clearly explained on your website. The mattress cover was stained and needs replacing. Communication was good getting to the cottage and it was easy to access when we arrived. Hide

Bigger door mat when you come in would be handy to try and capture most of whats on your shoes as you enter, as this just ends up all around the bed area after day or two.

The cottage was very well appointed and the description of the facilities (including the lack of sink) was accurate. Actually, the description undersold it slightly, as it didn't make clear that the cottage has wifi. The standard of furnishings was excellent and the property manager was very helpful. The welcome hamper, with its range of local prodRead moreucts, was a lovely touch. It's a beautiful location, in a remote corner of the Holkham site. It actually felt like a luxury hotel room, transplanted into a woodland setting. We will definitely return to try another of the properties at Holkham. Hide
