HOLT • Sleeps 5 • Dogs welcome
Mulberry Cottage is the perfect choice for a relaxing self-catering cottage break in the town of Holt in North Norfolk. This cute, little Georgian gem, with its eclectic mix of Mulberry wallpapers, stylish furnishings and contemporary touches, is quite simply a delight. With a comfortable mix of English country charm and modern style, this cottage is perfectly located to explore the pretty market town of Holt with its shops, cafes and galleries, and is just four miles from the beautiful North Norfolk coast with its fabulous wide open beaches and big skies.
Whether you are relaxing, celebrating, switching off, or re-charging the batteries, Mulberry Cottage is a fabulous choice if you are looking for a Norfolk hideaway within easy reach of shops, restaurants and beaches. Located on the edge of Holt town centre and only a few minutes’ walk to the popular Byfords cafe and deli (great for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or supper), you are also in easy walking distance of other eateries, pubs, boutiques, food emporiums and independent shops.
This Grade II Listed property is both quirky and charming in equal measure; with a petite yet very functional contemporary kitchen with modern lantern light, making it light and bright all year-round. Rest assured you will have all you need, when you’re not trying out the wonderful local pubs for lazy lunches and relaxed evening meals.
A cosy dining room with TV and two comfy chairs, allows the children to decamp to the other room, while you can enjoy the stylish sitting room with its two large sofas. On winter evenings snuggle up in front of the wood burning stove with a mug of tea and buttered crumpets and toast your toes!
On long summer days relax outside in the paved courtyard garden, make use of the BBQ and dine alfresco with a cheeky glass of wine (or two!)
Bedrooms and bathrooms
Accessed via a steep Norfolk winder staircase, all the bedrooms on the first floor have plenty of style and panache with their gorgeous Mulberry wallapers and pretty decorative touches.
With two doubles and one single, all the bedrooms have sufficient privacy if you are holidaying with friends or with the family.
Step down into the shower room offering double drench shower.
The surrounding countryside is your garden and the wide open beaches are your oyster!
Holt is a unique market town and has a well-preserved Georgian High Street with over 40 independent shops. Home to the famous Gresham’s private school, it has a summer festival and has royal connections; both the Duchess of Cornwall and Duchess of Cambridge have been spotted shopping in the high street shops.
The cottage is well placed for bird watching with the RSPB reserve at nearby Cley-next-the-Sea just a few miles drive away; great in the winter months if you want to escape from its all, but want to be in walking distance to shop, pubs and restaurants.
While on holiday, make sure you catch the Poppy Line steam train from Holt to Sheringham; visit Blakeney with its harbour and catch a boat from Morston to see the seals. Enjoy lunch or afternoon tea at the renowned Wiveton Cafe and don’t miss dinner at the Wiveton Bell.
The fantastic ‘Back to the Garden’ farm shop at Letheringsett is less than a five minute drive away where you can stock up on some fabulous local produce and drop in for a hearty breakfast and lunch too.
One car parking space is provided at the church opposite (please use the permit in the cottage). There is off-road parking outside the property although this is subject to parking restrictions.
The kitchen is well equipped with a gas range cooker, built in microwave/oven, integrated slim-line dishwasher, fridge with freezer compartment and washer/dryer.
Mulberry Cottage offers an enclosed courtyard garden. If you want to stretch your legs, Holt’s fabulous country park is just five minutes’ walk away.
Dogs are welcome.
Please note: the staircase at Mulberry cottage is very steep and narrow. The house also has some low doorways.
