Shire Cottage is a luxury holiday cottage in Holt, North Norfolk. Its prime town centre location opposite the renowned Byfords of Holt makes Shire Cottage the ideal place to stay and explore this popular Georgian town and the beautiful North Norfolk coast.
This period property has been refurbished to a high standard; it is excellently equipped with all essentials and plenty of little luxuries too.
If you’re searching for the perfect cottage for a family holiday or romantic escape to North Norfolk, look no further. Shire Cottage sleeps 4 in style, with Norfolk’s finest shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants on the doorstep and Norfolk’s beautiful coastline just a few miles down the road.
I grew up in Norfolk, studied at Loughborough University, and today run a boutique optician business in Holt, close to the North Norfolk coast.
I have been managing Shire Cottage as a holiday rental property for 10 years, and I am always delighted to share our home with guests.

My Mum purchased Shire Cottage a decade ago, and she really couldn't have chosen a better location - it is in the most perfect spot in the middle of Holt and the view of beautiful Byfords (opposite) never gets boring. It's so convenient to be able to walk over the road to the deli or any number of other great little shops.
I love the interior, which I designed myself, sourcing furnishings in local shops and antiques stores wherever possible. I really enjoy staying somewhere that is clutter-free! The kitchen is my favourite kitchen ever - we designed it down to the last millimetre to make the best use of space and did tonnes of research to find the best appliances. The galley style means that everything is close at hand, whilst the hand-built painted cupboards and hidden appliances keep everything looking neat and tidy.
"Just outstanding - in location, comfort and style" - December 2014
"We have been coming to the cottage for a few years, it is always warm and welcoming, this year was no exception, little Christmas lights and decorations met us as we entered. Everything you might need has been thought of. It is a 5 star self catering cottage. The beds are comfortable with a lovely view of the delightful town of Holt. The kitchen is well equipped with good quality utensils.We can't wait until next year!" - December 2014
"We loved our stay in Shire Cottage. It's right in the middle of Holt, so shops, pubs and restaurants are all in close walking distance. The cottage has been refurbished to a very high standard and has absolutely everything you need. Truly excellent" - October 2014
We loved our weekend in Shire Cottage. The décor was stunning and everything provided was of excellent quality. The kitchen was well stocked (I have never seen such a fancy oven!) and the toiletries left for us was a lovely touch. The house is beautifully laid out and I took away lots of fab ideas for my own cottage in London! The location, being right in the heart of Holt, was great, and we frequented the Byfords across the road both mornings for yummy coffees and croissants.
Our only negatives (and they are minor) is the beds in the second room were a bit short for two adults; they seem to be more suited for children I think. Also having a shower over the bath made it a bit tricky to wash in the morning without splashing the whole bathroom! But if you like baths; its fabulous. Saying that, we managed fine and it didn't detract from the enjoyment of the stay. We would definitely recommend it.
