Set on the edge of a picturesque market town, this traditional 18th century Grade II listed cottage has been sensitively renovated to provide delightful holiday accommodation for up to four guests.

The bustling Georgian market town of Holt makes a wonderful base for enjoying this idyllic area. The stunning Norfolk coastline is just 4 miles away, and there are many wonderful rural walks to be discovered. Holt is home to a fantastic variety of independent shops, restaurants, pubs, historic buildings and art galleries, and the nearby Holt Country Park offers 100 acres of woodland. Local attractions include the ruins of Baconsthorpe Castle and Binham Priory, the Muckleburgh Military Collection and the watermill at Letheringsett. You can also take a trip on a steam train, or visit lovely coastal resorts including Wells-next-the-Sea and Cromer. Other places to visit include Blakeney National Nature Reserve, Pensthorpe Natural Park and the Cley Marshes Nature Reserve.

 

Originally part of the Holt Workhouse, this lovely 18th century Grade II listed building was renovated in 2010, making it a charming single-level holiday home ideal for a couple or a small family. On entering the property, a porch leads you through to the spacious, vaulted lounge/diner which retains original features including a brick chimney and a traditional wood burner. This light and welcoming room is an ideal space to relax in, complete with comfortable seating, TV, CD and iPod dock. You will also find a charming dining area which leads through to the attractively designed shaker-style kitchen, which is fully equipped with an oven, washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave and fridge/freezer. Exploring the cottage further you will find a cosy double bedroom and a snug single bedroom which also features a trundle bed for an additional guest.

The location is ideal for walking into Holt. The cottage is in need of a thorough clean/redecoration some objects were covered in dust and spiders .Some light bulbs are missing and some have blown with no spares to hand. I would advise taking own bath towels because those provided are old,small and rough.The kitchen equipment is inadequate, in partRead moreicular lacking a colander. Hide

Blackbird Cottage is a homely and characterful place to stay, and the pretty garden is not overlooked by the neighbours. Probably the best holiday home we have rented in North Norfolk.

Our second visit but disappointed this time. Lacking in cooking, eating and drinking essentials etc and needed attention to maintenance. Good off street parking if a little difficult for larger cars. Location is good and only a short walk from town centre. Quiet.

As an ageing couple with grown up children (who both visited us during the week) the location of this cottage was perfect, with an easy walk to the town and simple access to the coast. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable, and having wall-to-wall sunshine was a bonus!

Lovely cottage, probably one of the best we've stayed in. Very clean on arrival and very very comfortable for our weeks stay. Hone from home! Great location, very peaceful and within easy walking distance of shop and the village centre and a short drive to the coast. All in all brilliant and will in all likelihood return at some point.

What a wonderful place to stay! Black bird cottage was extremely comfortable and homely, so cosy. It didn't feel like a holiday let. Myself, hubby & 16 month old had a very relaxing week. The cottage is all one level, so great for small kids and all the cooking equipment, wifi etc was in good order.
