After a 15 year gap in staying in Holt, it was marvellous to return to Norfolk and revisit all the places we grew up in over the years 1980 to 2003. Owl Cottage has been a lovely cottage to stay in and we appreciate all the excellent amenities provided. The Blackhams - 14th April 2018

We stayed at this same property about 35 years ago when it was Flint Cottage so this was a bit of a nostalgia trip. We were not disappointed! It has now doubled in size but it is just as warm and cosy as we remember it. Its proximity to the town centre is a bonus - we eat in Holt most evenings. The cottage itself is very well presented and superbly equipped. Thank you.Mr Robert Wallis - 2nd October 2017
