About Violet Cottage

Violet Cottage is a classic Norfolk holiday cottage made from local brick and flint, sympathetically restored and extended to sleep four people in two very comfortable bedrooms. The owners live locally and manage every changeover to ensure the highest standards are maintained and that every guest, whether on two legs or four, immediately feels welcome. It's at the exclusive Old Dairy in Kelling, three miles from Holt and a stroll from a popular tea room and gallery. The cottage is also within walking distance (approximately 15-minutes) of the shingle beach at Kelling via off-road paths and 'The Quog', a small area of marsh and lakes where cows graze with good birdwatching. It's a fantastic holiday home for couples and families with older children (12 years and over), including those with dogs. The village is surrounded by gorgeous countryside and is within easy reach of the beautiful North Norfolk coast and beaches like Weybourne and Salthouse.

Kelling is a wonderful base for exploring the gorgeous Norfolk coast and countryside. It's perfect for people who enjoy peace and privacy - the views from the cottage garden are idyllic - yet being so close to Holt means that every amenity you need is within a short drive, leisurely cycle, or an appetite-building walk. Holt is a pretty Georgian market town stuffed with fantastic places to eat, antique shops to browse, and a lovely 13th-Century church, as well as all of the essential amenities you'd expect from an established town. Follow the Holt Owl Trail to Holt Country Park - a favourite spot with locals and visitors for its 100 acres of woodland trails, picnic spots and playground.

There is so much to see and do when you stay at Violet Cottage that you'll struggle to fit everything into one stay. Salthouse is a peaceful shingle beach backed by marshes and a heath that forms part of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve. It's a popular choice for birdwatchers, though anyone will appreciate the spectacular views from the coastal footpath. Weybourne is another picturesque shingle beach on Norfolk's Deep History Coast. It is next to Sheringham Park and has a station on the famous North Norfolk Railway Line that runs between Holt and Sheringham. Sheringham is a family-friendly sandy beach with Blue Flag status. Hire a beach hut and spend the day enjoying its seaside charms. Further afield, Cromer, Blakeney, and Wells-Next-the-Sea are also perfect for setting up your deckchair. If you can't resist a day in the city, then Norwich's medieval buildings, sights, and attractions are under an hour away.

Violet Cottage is as pretty as its name implies. The owner has created a beautiful space where you can relax and enjoy the magic of North Norfolk.

Accommodation Comprises:

Violet Cottage is one of eight private cottages on the exclusive Old Dairy Farm estate. It is built in the traditional Norfolk style, with the customary red pan-tiled roof and characteristic flint walls. Accommodation is over two levels.


  • An open-plan layout and a chic timeless decor make the main living area feel very spacious and welcoming. Fitted cupboards, a classic electric range cooker and a traditional ceramic butler's sink, make the kitchen, with its scrubbed pine dining table, somewhere you'll love cooking and spending time together. The owners have equipped the kitchen with loads of useful extras like a breadmaker, slow cooker, dishwasher, and a Nespresso coffee machine. After meals, relax in the sitting area, looking out onto the garden or through the skylights to the stars.
  • Alternatively, relax after supper in the Snug, a wonderfully cosy place with L-shape sofa where you can snuggle up and watch a movie on the Smart TV with Netflix, iPlayer etc and a DVD player.
  • Shower away the salt and sand in the downstairs shower room, featuring complimentary Faith in Nature toiletries. There's a shower, heated towel rail for cold weather, a WC and a handbasin.


  • Master bedroom with a double bed, bedside tables and reading lamps.
  • Twin bedroom with two full-sized single beds separated by a nightstand with reading lights. All beds are made up for the arrival of guests with quality bed linens and comfortable throws and blankets.
  • Family bathroom with a shower over the bath, WC and a handbasin.

Outside: Bi-fold doors open the sitting room up onto the patio letting the outside flood in, where there is a table and chairs for four people. There is also a pretty cottage garden with extra seating amongst the flowers. The cottage has allocated parking for one car, with extra parking available.

Additional Information: Utilities, WiFi, bed linen and bath towels are included. Guests to provide beach towels if they are required. Guests over the age of 12 years only.
