The Holkham Estate is in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and home to Holkham Hall, which sits proudly at the centre of the Estate with far-reaching views over the 25,000-acres of historic parkland and woodland. One of the region’s finest and most recognisable Palladian country houses and the ancestral home of the Coke family for more than 400 years. The grounds are ideal for cycling and feature many themed walks and trails, with bike hire available close to the courtyard, restaurant and gift shop. You can even take to the water on the lake during the warmer months of the year. Just outside the walls of Holkham Park is Lady Anne’s Drive which leads down to the wide-sweeping sands and big skies of the dog friendly beach, bordered by pine woods. You will also find yourself spoilt for choice when looking to eat out. The Victoria Inn in the Holkham village serves fantastic local, seasonal cuisine from dawn to dusk, whilst lunch can also be enjoyed at the Hall’s Courtyard Cafe, The Lookout or the Beach Cafe slightly further afield in Wells-next-the-Sea. Wells-next-the-Sea is a charming coastal town with its iconic beach huts and picturesque harbour where you can enjoy fresh shellfish or the catch of the day. Other delights nearby are Burnham Market and its sister villages, Brancaster, Cley-next-the-Sea and the town of Holt to name just a few.


Unique location which provides a secluded and peaceful respite from the outside world, whilst providing easy access to the magical Holkham estate and neighbouring coastline, countryside and villages.

Mr G,

Perfect for a couple for a long weekend. Location on the Holkham estate is stunning, and being January we were able to enjoy the roosting of the geese.

Ms C,

Unique hideaway with luxurious style. All amenities were top notch and the surroundings of trees, wildlife and a sense of ‘in the middle of nowhere’ were bonuses. The welcome hamper is a very nice touch.

Mrs B,

Arrived as Miss Mullard and Mr Glover, departed as Mr & Mrs Glover. Got married on Friday at St Withburga's Church + then had the weekend to recover + soak it all in. Lovely to be hidden in the woods with all the wildlife. Thank you.

Mr Robert G,

A lovely way to spend our Silver Anniversary weekend! ... Wow!! What an amazing setting - to be able to stay on the Holkham Estate is fabulous and in such a quirky 'tardis like' building which used to be the gatekeepers accommodation years ago is truly unique. So peaceful, tranquil and comfortable. We loved the little hamper full of local produce, lovely bread, scones and jam were a great touch, also thank you for the Prosecco....

Past Customer,

Another idyllic stay (Palmers Folly last year) here in Holkham. We loved the peace and tranquility of the woods once again and the delightfully quirky lodge. We look forward to returning!

Past Customer,

Palmers Lodge looked beautiful on the website, and when we arrived it did not disappoint. We were delighted with so many lovely things, a fantastic welcome pack, washing up liquid, cloths etc. A bottle of prosecco. Holkham & surrounding villages were really busy but the retreat to Palmers lodge was so tranquil & peaceful & exactly what my husband & I had hoped for, a place to destress after a really busy 6 months at work without a holiday. Definitely recommend & the surrounding pubs, restaurants, take aways & ice cream parlours are outstanding. We will definitely be booking again

Mrs C,

Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay. The lodge is comfortable and the photos didn't do it justice! It's a magical place!

Previous Customer,

To be able to stay in the grounds of the Holkham Estate is special - especially after lockdown! We love the location of the lodge. we hope to be back!

Mr Paul F,
