We absolutely loved The Keep, it is beautifully done and incredibly well equipped, I can't think of anything we could need that wasn't provided. We loved the owls in the trees in the grounds too! Holt is lovely and we would love to return at some point.Everything was just perfect, real luxury, we felt quite spoiled and my children would like to move in!

The Willsher family stayed at The Grove Holt . Three generations stayed in four cottages which is just how we imagined and hoped The Grove Holt would be best used.

"I think you have the place spot on and we cannot think of anything you could do to improve The Grove Holt. All in all a fabulous place and up there amongst the best we have ever stayed in - anywhere in the UK or abroad.

We will definitely be back and hopefully you will give your first few guests some priority booking !! "

Mr & Mrs Thompson stayed in The Bailey

Probably the best self catering cottage we have every stayed in, both for style and practicality.

Mr & Mrs Cloughley stayed in The Bailey

We had a wonderful short break recently at the Grove in Holt.

Holt itself has a great small market town atmosphere and the Grove is just a short walk from the town centre. It is also a really good base for all the coastal towns such as Wells and Hunstanton.

The Grove is a beautiful building and the ground floor apartment we stayed in was called The Bailey - it was decorated in a cool coastal feel really calm and relaxing and beautifully accessorised. The high ceilings and big windows let in loads of light and looked out onto the pretty, secure and well maintained grounds.

The accommodation was beautifully appointed, absolutely spotless and very well equipped.

We felt very pampered.

The Grove is new, and I imagine will quickly become hugely popular - we'd love to keep it a secret, but know it would be such a great holiday base for couples and families, that we have to let you know about it.

You wont be disappointed.

Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Wendy and Les Cloughley (and Mini Schnauzer Bert)

Mr & Mrs Pailing, Northamptonshire stayed in The Bailey

We recently stayed in the Bailey at The Grove Holt and were pleasantly surprised to find great attention to detail. What a beautiful place and setting. Very private, clean, cosy and everything you could need in a holiday let. A real home from home. Fantastic real log fire and fully equipped with top quality items throughout the house.

I would highly recommend you staying here and there is so much to do around the area and Holt is a lovely friendly place. Try the Kings Head (dog friendly) for a warm welcome and friendly drink, they also do food. The Taste of India was outstanding and some of the best Indian food we have tasted, especially for a takeaway (restaurant available too). I am sure you will enjoy it as much as we did. We look forward to coming back and would highly recommend.

Ms Doherty, stayed in The Castle

The photographs belie the quality and atmosphere of The Grove. I recently stayed in the Castle with family and friends and would highly recommend a stay. The Regency property has been sensitively restored, main

Why The Owner chose Holt

The Grove Holt is only a short 10 minute walk from the Georgian town centre of Holt, 4 miles from coastal Blakeney with a full range of shops, galleries cafes and pubs, with ease of access to all North Norfolk has to offer. Holt steam railway is 5 minutes walk and takes you along the coast to Sheringham's sandy beaches.

There is always so much to do in the area and all the pubs are child friendly so eating out is easy and there are many places to choose from.

What makes this cottage unique

The Grove Holt is set in 3 acres of gardens and woodlands.

The tranquillity and spaciousness of the gardens belies the fact that the cottages are so close to a busy town centre with every amenity including many exclusive shopping experiences and interesting galleries.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the Tower and would recommend this as an ideal base from which to explore Norfolk. The property is situated in quiet grounds in which we found instantly relaxing. The accommodation is clean, spacious and well-equipped with everything you could possibly need. Upon our arrival we were delighted to find a thoughtful welcome pack from the owner. We also enjoyed a meal at the owner's restaurant in Holt. We hope to visit again soon.
