South Lodge East dates back to 1847 and was designed by well-known architect, S. S. Teulon. The lodge has been restored and once again stands as sentinel, along with South Lodge West (ref:1940), to Holkham Hall on the Holkham Estate. This stylishly designed couple’s retreat offers a fabulous contrasting mix of traditional interiors with contemporary pops of colour. There’s a cosy living room for romantic evenings, with a wood burning stove to keep toes and paws warm after winter walks. The enclosed garden is the ideal spot for alfresco dining in the warmer months after long walks on the beach or cycling around the lake, with bike hire available on the Estate. This is a unique chance to stay on the Holkham Estate, so make it your love nest on the coast and explore the plentiful attractions nearby. Shop/Pub: 3 miles

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 lunch and dinner service,  whilst lunch can also be enjoyed at the Hall’s Courtyard Cafe or the Beach Cafe charming further afield in Wells-next-the-Sea. Wells-next-the-Sea is a lively 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.


Had a lovely stay, just a few maintenance issues which were quickly resolved.

Miss Tracey M,

Great location and well equipped. Could do with a better lamp (s) in sitting room. A fan for warmer days would be helpful given windows don’t open.

Mrs Beverley S,

Very happy with the cottage. Excellent in every way.

Mr Andrew F,

We had an amazing time in an exceptionally well located and equipped cottage. The welcome treats and Christina’s tree/wreath were added festive touches we enjoyed immensely. The close proximity to Holkham Hall, Wells and the beach made our stay enjoyable.

Mrs Paula D,

We have stayed on the Holkham Estate before however the company that previously managed the property had not cleaned or maintained it to the standard expected of a property on the estate. Norfolk cottages provided timely reminders accurate information, a beautifully presented property and a lovely welcome hamper. Thank you.

Mrs Beverley W,

Lovely location. Comfortable and clean accommodation.

Mrs Antoinette H,

Ms Julie H,

Kitchen equipment was limited, no measuring jug, and kitchen was very small. No wardrobes!

Mr Michael H,

Outside furniture was in a poor state. Need another arm chair in the lounge . TV aerial needed adjusting as some channels did not work
