About 8 Carpenters Cottages

8 Carpenters Cottages is ideally placed in the heart of the Georgian market town of Holt, tucked away in a private position in a pretty courtyard setting. Sleeping two guests in a double bedroom, the cottage offers the best of all worlds, being within strolling distance of great cafes, pubs, independent shops and Holt Country Park, yet peaceful and relaxing sitting behind a 'secret' cottage garden gate.

Dating back to the 1800's, this attractive cottage is cosy and welcoming with plenty of character. From the oak beams and wooden floors to the outdoor sitting area for a G&T, you are sure to fall in love with 8 Carpenters Cottages.

Start your day by strolling into Holt (just two minutes on foot) and having a cooked breakfast at Byfords (a real treat!) or picking up local ingredients at Bakers & Larners food hall to enjoy in the cottage courtyard listening to the sound of blackbirds as you plan your days adventures. With such a great array of amenities on the doorstep, including Holt Country Park, you may well park the car when you arrive and not get back in it until it is time to head home. Holt is also home to the Poppy Line Steam train where you can hop on and take a nostalgic scenic trip to Sheringham for some sea air.

Holt is a great base for exploring the many attractions of Norfolk. Blakeney National Nature Reserve with its famous seal and bird colonies is only five miles away, as is Cley Marshes - another must for wildlife enthusiasts. Cromer, Sheringham and Wells-next-the-Sea are also within easy driving distance for those wanting a day by the sea. Other attractions to add to your holiday itinerary are Sandringham Estate, Felbrigg Hall, Blickling Estate and Holkham Hall with its magnificent estate in a coastal setting.

Whatever the time of year, a holiday in Norfolk is sure to leave you relaxed and invigorated.
