The Cottage

The Cottage in Baconsthorpe is a real 'chocolate box' set in a peaceful village close to Holt. Utterly romantic and beautifully presented making it the perfect romantic bolthole, just a short drive from the North Norfolk coast.

The gorgeous semi - detached house has been styled beautifully to include a bespoke painted and fitted kitchen with marble flooring. The ground floor bathroom features a free standing double ended bath and marble tiled flooring with underfloor heating. Ascending the stairs you’ll find the pretty main bedroom with double bed, feature brick chimney and painted floor boards. The second bedroom with twin beds is ideal if you’re looking for a bit of extra space while the main bedroom can accommodate a travel cot for couples with a baby.

The Cottage is situated in Baconsthorpe, a village a few miles south-east of Holt and south of Sheringham. The pretty Georgian town of Holt is a maze of beautiful streets which draw visitors, including the Duchess of Cambridge, to this beautiful part of North Norfolk. With numerous independent shops, cafes and restaurants and art galleries, you can while away a day just meandering around the streets. This holiday at a glance

Attractions and nearby amenities

  • Not far away is Letheringsett Mill, the last watermill in Norfolk that still produces flour where you'll also find the ever-popular pub; The King's Head. A little further up the road is the renowned Back to the Garden farm shop and restaurant.
  • Around 30 minutes west is Holkham with its glorious wide sandy beach and pinewoods, not to mention the magnificent stately home Holkham Hall.
  • Blakeney is one of the jewels on the North Norfolk coast, a mecca for sailors, birders, artist and walkers. The harbour is picturesque and always bustling with children (and adults!) gillying for crabs. There are great places to eat and enjoy the local seafood and of course the famous Blakeney Hotel.
  • Blakeney Point is a 4 mile spit of sand dunes; wonderful for walking and wildlife watching as it is home to colonies of breeding Terns and many migrant birds pass through. Board a boat at Morston Quay to see the colony of about 500 harbour and grey seals.
  • Cromer, perched on the very edge of the north Norfolk coast, is famous for its tasty crabs, wide open beaches, traditional pier complete with a theatre providing seaside special variety shows; and is awash with small local independent shops.
  • Twenty minutes’ drive from The Cottage is Cley-Next-The-Sea, a very popular and charming coastal village. It is well appointed with a good pub/hotel, deli, pottery, gallery and the famous Cley Smokehouse.
