Whilst we do our very best to deter and remove them before your stay, the Triumphal Arch, like many old rural properties, occasionally has an issue with cluster flies. There are estate vehicles & bikes that do use the archway for access to areas of the Estate. Please see upcoming Estate Events here. 

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 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.


Everything was great. Lovely property in a lovely convenient location.

Mr Christopher O,

Thoroughly beautiful place, stairs unusual but taken with care

Mrs Helen C,

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.

Mrs M,

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

Mr S,
