  • Exclusive discount to a range of on-site amenities, and a welcome gift
Property code: OC-2339

Boasting trendy sumptuous interiors, enjoy glorious unspoilt views across the neighbouring fields and marshes from every window of this exceptionally renovated former agricultural building surrounded by the equally exceptional countryside of the Holkham Estate, just moments from the peaceful escape of the Norfolk coast.

After a long day exploring your surroundings, follow the warmth of the crackling wood burner into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining room, flooded with natural sunlight from the expanse of picture windows and boasting a muted neutral colour palette that perfectly blends into your natural surroundings. This endlessly social space invites you to enjoy the wonderful views whilst unwinding on the plush sofas, cooking up a storm with your delicious local produce and dining long into the evening seated around the rustic dining table. Enjoy even more glorious views from each of the four wonderfully presented en-suite bedrooms before retiring for a well-earned rest before tomorrow’s adventure. Dine alfresco on the patio listening to the trickling sounds of the water feature as children and four-legged friends let off some steam on the lawn.

Lying in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the surrounding Holkham Estate offers 25,000 acres of historic parkland and woodland to explore on foot, on two wheels (bike hire is available) or with four-legged friends, as well as the stunning Palladian country house of Holkham Hall 2 miles away at its centre. Enjoy a traditional bucket and spade adventure just over a mile away at the vibrant dune-backed, dog-friendly beach at Wells-next-the-Sea boasting colourful beach huts available to hire. Dive into the local history by weaving around the 18th-century buildings of Burnham Market (5 miles) to discover an array of independent shops, boutiques and award-winning restaurants serving the best local produce this area has to offer.

A very comfortable and well equipped property in an excellent location. Close enough to Wells to walk to restaurants and pubs and a short drive from Holkham Beach.

The View is even better than it looks in the photos. Having 4 large double bedrooms all with en-suites makes it perfect for multi generational get togethers. Kitchen well equipped for large group cooking and very dog friendly with the large enclosed garden. Perfect setting just a few minutes walk and youre in the grounds of the beautiful HolkhamRead more Estate . Holkham Hall Park run a short walk from the door. Would love to return one day as definitely one of the best holiday homes we have ever stayed in. Hide

Fantastic house and great location felt away from it all, yet only a short distance from the town. Great for celebrating as we were, with a wonderful open plan living space. Fabulous to sit and watch the wildlife.

Had some issues at the property, none resolved whilst there, lied to or not given correct information when Norfolk cottages fully aware before we arrived and poor communication back to me , well non existent apart from texts i could not reply to. 4 phone calls made and told me to complain after my 2500.00 holiday. Not good enough.

Have scored lower, for value for money as we Found it very strange - for the money paid that we had to strip our own beds in the morning! I have rented a lot of holiday homes & never had to do this!

It was exactly as described and almost faultless. The only reason for a slight downgrade was that we were expected to do quite a lot on departure which as it wasn't a cheap rental we felt was asking a bit much. Also the recycling bin was full on arrival which meant we couldn't add any of ours to it. But on the whole it was lovely and we would book Read moreagain Hide
