Bedrooms and Bathrooms
1 Carpenters Cottage offers two comfortable, stylish bedrooms on its first floor, both of which having been lovingly created to give guests the best possible rest after a busy day on the beach (or shopping and enjoying the local eateries, whatever takes your fancy!). They are accessed by using the wide, straight staircase and anyone with mobility concerns can be reassured that the staircase has no turns with rails to provide assistance.
Bedroom 1 has a comfy king-sized bed, ample storage and is characterised by the prominent wooden beams and Victorian styled furniture.
Bedroom 2 is a twin arrangement that has two full sized single beds and replicates the style and feel of the double. Both rooms are fresh and airy with plenty of natural light in the day, while being cosy and intimate in the evening.
On the 1st floor landing you also access the luxury master bathroom, here you’ll find a sanctuary of calm and relaxation where a good soak will never feel more appealing in the calm tones of the bathroom and its stylish decor. The Victorian styled roll top bath just begs for a nice glass of wine and a book!
On the ground floor, you have the added benefit of a shower room that is situated just next to the utility room. This is so convenient if you’ve just come off the beach and the children need a good scrubbing down.
Living Space and Kitchen
The lounge is a stylish and comfortable space towards the rear of the property in which relaxation cannot be avoided, even by the most pressured of parents or after the longest of drives.

Holt is situated close to Norfolk’s prestigious North coast. An old market town that has found renewed life, it revels in the popularity that comes from its proximity to places like Blakeney and Cley-next-Sea. Almost all of its buildings were burnt down in 1808 when a fire broke out and obliterated the town. The rebuild has resulted in a rather handsome Georgian centre. One of the oldest surviving buildings though is Gresham’s School; Norfolk’s most prestigious public school dating from 1555.
Holt is a cosmopolitan town, with elegant colour-washed houses and narrow lanes running off the high street. With numerous independent shops, there are some pretty courtyards too; Old Stable Yard, Lee’s Yard, Chapel Yard, Feather’s Yard and Apple Yard. As well as some fabulous bakers, fishmongers, butchers a fish and chip shop and newsagents, there are a large number of clothes shops, galleries, food emporiums and kitchen shops and a plethora of cafes and tea rooms for you to enjoy, Byfords deserves special mention!
Drive out of the town and you will come across lovely villages such as Wiveton with its renowned pub, The Wiveton Bell. Don’t forget to also visit the Wiveton Caf? between Blakeney and Cley-next-the-Sea and Picnic Fayre; a delightful deli in the village of Cley. Cley is also great for a day out and be sure to visit the RSPB nature reserve. Drive a little further east along the coast road and you will come across Salthouse with a great pub, The Dun Cow and the quirky Cookies; a famous fish shed which serves wonderful fish dishes overlooking the marsh. Additionally, the Kings Head in Letheringsett just a 3 minute drive away.
Nearby Weybourne is also a visit. A pretty village with a windmill, it sits on the coast road just west of Sheringham. Weybourne’s North Norfolk Railway station lies a mile from the village.
Be sure to also take a trip to see the Seals at Blakeney!
