About The Pig House

The Pig House wouldn't look out of place in your favourite home or architecture magazine. Apart from its location on a former farm, there is nothing agricultural about this self-catering holiday home in North Norfolk. It is one of six well-planned and beautifully completed holiday cottages on the estate in Briningham, a few miles from Holt and within easy reach of the spectacular beaches of the North Norfolk coast. The spacious conversion sleeps eight people in four impressive bedrooms with two folding beds to increase this to ten people.

The North Norfolk Coast ANOB is always in style, attracting holidaymakers of all ages in all seasons. Briningham is a quiet village convenient for the coast but far enough away that you don't have to tolerate summer day-trippers if you'd prefer. Holkham's sandy shore stretches for two miles between Wells and Overy Staithe Beach, with ample space for solitude. Cromer has a Victorian pier, seaside amusements, traditional amenities like chip shops, and a beach shack selling fresh crab and lobster rolls. Families will enjoy Brancaster as it is big enough to be exciting for children but not so large that they have to walk too far.

Norfolk is widely regarded as one of the best places in England for birdwatching. Bird watchers love it for the number and diversity of migrating and breeding birds, especially geese, who fill the skies and take refuge in places like RSPB Titchwell Marsh and Snettisham, Holkham, Brancaster Staithe, and Blakeney Point. Blakeney is home to the biggest colony of grey seals in England. A seal-watching boat trip from Morston Quay is the safest way to enjoy the site of seal pups in winter without disturbing their peace.

Shopping for groceries is a pleasure in Holt. The pretty Georgian market town has a great choice of independent shops and places to eat and drink. Alternatively visit the markets in Aylsham, Fakenham and Reepham. You're less than half an hour from Norwich if the mood for serious shopping and sightseeing strikes. Dozens of local attractions include beWILDerwood and the Dinosaur Adventure Park for kids, Sandringham Estate for wannabe-royalty, Norfolk Lavender, the Muckleburgh Military Collection, Pensthorpe Natural Park, and the Poppy Line heritage steam trains.
