Wonderful hosts a great location, a home from home.Ms R King - 16th October 2017
This was one of the best self catering properties we have ever stayed in. The facilities were supreme and we wanted for nothing. The bed was very comfortable and the owners very helpful indeed. Thank you - this was a superb holiday. Mr Kenneth Pimbley - 2nd October 2017
Very well appointed property in a good location. The owners met us with homemade bread, cake and jam - all of which were superb and very welcome. As our holiday was rather wet the fantastic indoor heated pool was perfect for the family. Highly recommended.Mr Nigel Hackett - 18th September 2017
The Holkham, Roughton was an excellent holiday house for a large group. The property had sufficient space for the three families to spread out and have some individual time whilst ample dining and living area space to also all sit down together. The standard of service from the owners was the best we had encountered - freshly baked bread, homemade jam, tea/coffee etc, milk and wine. A lovely touch on our arrival. The pool was excellent and meant that even in bad weather we could happily occupy the children in a safe environment. We would wholeheartedly recommend The Holkham and the complex as a whole. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Mrs H Frankland - 18th August 2017

Excellent accommodation - What a find, well equipped, clean and very spacious. All of the family have thoroughly enjoyed our stay over this festive period. The swimming pool was much bigger than we thought it would be and the children wanted to be in it all of the time. Would definitely recommend & hopefully we will revisit. Exceptional.The Smith Family - 1st January 2016
I like this converted barn because it is very spacious. I wish this place was my house. Me and my sister especially like your swimming pool. My whole family enjoyed this place so much. Hopefully we can stay again. Great.Ella (aged 10) - 1st January 2016
