Recently renovated and made available for holiday letting, Teal Cottage is a charming Georgian Grade II listed cottage sitting in the Norfolk market town of Holt close to the coast. With excellent amenities, guests have interesting shops to browse, restaurants, pubs and galleries on the doorstep, and the coast just a few miles away for lazy days on the beach or an invigorating walk to blow away the cob webs.
With an attractive courtyard with BBQ for alfresco dining and a log fire to cosy up in front of with a good movie, the cottage is perfect at any time of the year. It is within walking distance of Holt Country Park, offering lovely walks, cycle rides and places for a picnic. Holt also has a railway station where you can jump on the Poppy Line and take the steam train to the nearby vibrant town of Sheringham with its Blue Flag sandy beach.
Holkham with its golden sandy beach is another popular day trip out, as is Cromer, Well-next-the-Sea with its pretty little beach huts and Blakeney where you can take a boat trip to go seal spotting,
For those happy to travel a little further afield, head for the magical waterways of the Norfolk Broads, the bright lights of Norwich city centre or Great Yarmouth for some old fashioned seaside fun.
Whether you visit Holt in the summer when the town takes on a continental vibe with pretty colourful flower baskets outside the cafes beckoning you in, or when the town is twinkling with festive Christmas cheer, it is a fabulous choice for a weekend away or holiday at any time of the year.
