  • A unique 18th-century Grade I-listed hideaway surrounded by nature
  • Explore the impressive grounds of Holkham Estate and long stretches of sandy coastline
  • An elegant and romantic retreat with an open fire and roll-top bath

Property code: OC-1941

Step into the shoes of nobility when you stay at this luxurious, three-storey retreat within the estate of a grand stately home. Originally an elegant gatehouse to impressive Holkham Hall, the romantic, one-bedroom abode now offers sumptuous, stylish accommodation for a couple eager to escape on a romantic break. Providing beautiful views across the immaculate, parkland grounds, the eye-catching, dog-friendly holiday home includes features such as a stone, spiral staircase, an open fire and a lawned garden, ensuring you and your loved one experience a North Norfolk stay to remember.

Enter to pull off your walking boots before making a cup of tea to enjoy with one of the local treats in your welcome hamper. Prepare meals in the kitchen/diner too when you choose to eat in rather than at a nearby pub or restaurant. There is also a WC downstairs. Follow the steep, narrow, spiral staircase up to the shower room and another WC, and then on up to the open-plan lounge/bedroom. On autumn and winter days you can settle down in front of a good film on TV; soak in hot bubbles in the freestanding bath before spending the night in the beautiful, four-poster king-size bed. Wake up to glorious views out across the parkland from your position at the top of the arched gatehouse. Have coffee out in your private garden in the morning or a glass of fizz as the sun sets.

Enjoy a 3.5-mile walk through the picturesque parkland to the wide, open expanse of Holkham Beach. Visit the hall too while you are here and hire bikes to follow other routes. The Georgian village of Burnham Market, with its independent shops and eateries centred around an elegant green is just 3 miles from your impressive holiday home.

A stunning setting which feels really special. The spiral staircase is a significant climb up/down and so not for those with impaired mobility. The main room itself is very beautiful.

Significantly overpriced and rendered barely habitable by the biblical fly infestation which should not be understated. Even in December the property was constantly covered in dead flies on all surfaces even in the bath and shower, this was a major issue for us in an otherwise quirky place to stay. Park and locality beautiful for walks and cycle riRead moredes and Hall staff very friendly and helpful Hide

This is a very interesting and surprisingly spacious property ideal for a quirky getaway on the beautiful Holkham Estate. Its a stunning location if you want to walk and explore the surrounding coast and countryside, Its worth taking note regarding the spiral stone staircase which is steep and wouldnt be ideal if youre less mobile, (or if youre dogRead more isnt agile) also we did experience the cluster fly issue which wasnt pleasant but was addressed by Norfolk Cottages for us satisfactory Hide

Triumphal Arch was wonderful, amazing views and a beautiful little fire upstairs made it very cosy. We walked and walked through the magnificent Holkham estate and felt very special.

The property was amazing, a very comfortable stylish retreat for a few days. The glorious views of the estate, and the walks around Holkham Hall were superb. The stairs were a challenge, but well worth the effort and everything was there for our comfort, logs for the fire and a welcoming hamper of goodies. Excellent
