About Erika Daw

My husband and I have our own business based in Saffron Walden and Peterborough. We bought Glaven Cottage just over a year ago as we love the North Norfolk Coast and wanted a base from which to enjoy the coastline with our two small children (age 4 and 7). We have tried to me, the cottage a 'home from home' with everything you will need for the perfect beach holiday.

Erika Daw purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Erika Daw chose North Norfolk & Coast

We fell in love with Glaven Cottage due to its location; a quiet courtyard of 6 houses but in the heart of the gorgeous town of Holt. It is only a few minutes walk from the lovely independent shops, restaurants, pubs, supermarket and Byfords (for warm croissants baked each morning, really good coffee and wifi). Only a few minutes drive away are the stunning quays of Blakeney and Morston (home of the seal trips and crabbing) and the wonderful beaches of Wells, Holkham, Sheringham and Cromer. Holt Country Park has fantastic walks and the children highly recommend the playground at Holkham. The whole area is a haven for fantastic restaurants serving fresh local produce.

What makes this cottage unique

Only 2-3 minutes walk from Holt town centre with off street parking.

Only 10 minutes drive to fantastic beaches and marsh walks.

Recently renovated in country cottage/coastal style.

South facing patio for sunny days and log burner for cosy evenings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Spent a lovely week at Glaven Cottage. Great central location in Holt. Easy driving to local beaches. Very comfortable and cosy house with everything that you would need. Beach hut available to hire at Wells through Doodle Pots just down the road. The seal trips from Morston are a must. Try the lovely Deli Byfords and Kings head for a good pub in walking distance. Very relaxing week - thank you.

Beautiful cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Glaven cottage, Holt in September 2016 with two friends. The cottage was spotlessly clean and welcoming with everything that we required. Short car journeys to the coast, Wells-Next-the-sea, Sherringham, Holkham and Cromer. Also you can get a steam train from Holt to Sherringham. The cottage is located in the village and we were therefore able to walk to the local restaurants each evening. The Kings Head, The Feathers and Byfords. All very good. Erika was very helpful and provided lots of information. There is a very narrow spiral staircase, so may not be suitable for very elderly. I would recommend this cottage and will stay again when visiting the area.

Lovely homely cottage, great location

  • 4 of 5

Family of 4, lovely big kitchen / dining room with space for kids to play. Nice to have access from this to gravelled seating area. Kitchen well equipped. Useful equipment for beach. Beware the stairs are steep so we had a light on in case our two year old wandered out his room in the night. Good storage space in bedrooms .

Very handy for lovely Holt town and a short drive to the beach. We enjoyed going to wells and west Runton beach and blakeney harbour . Looked like there were many other places to explore that we didn't have time for. Very much enjoyed our stay thank you .

Great spot and lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for us. Holt and all it has to offer are just on the doorstep. The cottage is spotlessly clean, nicely decorated and had everything we needed. The owners have clearly taken great care to make sure guests feel welcome and enjoy their stay - which we very much did.

The cottage was lovely & clean with nice decor & furnishings, we had everything we needed including a washing machine, iron & ironing board, beach gear & a good shower with endless hot water.

Thank you.

Great little cottage in Holt!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week away in Glaven Cottage in Holt! it was a great base for visiting the area & also a very comfy cottage if you just wanted to stay put. Easy & quick walk to the town centre which was lovely, nice to not have to keep using the car & apart from the weather which we were very unlucky with we really enjoyed our week!
