Property code: KT137

A stylish and thoughtfully updated period cottage for four guests, situated in the beautiful Georgian town of Holt, situated only 4 miles from the local beach at Weybourne.

This pretty cottage enjoys a fantastic location in one of Norfolk’s much-loved market towns, Holt. Known for its classic Georgian architecture and its interesting array of independent stores and artisan shops, Holt is an excellent base for exploring the beaches, towns, and countryside of North Norfolk. To add another layer of vintage authenticity to the town, there is even a steam train line, the North Norfolk Railway, which runs from Holt to the seaside town of Sheringham via the coastal village of Weybourne, offering an interesting and relaxing day out. Weybourne is also home to the nearest beach, lying just 4 miles north of the property, whilst the sandy beach and pier at Cromer are located an easy 10 mile drive away.

From the outside this delightful cottage appears like any other well-maintained traditional terrace, however, once inside guests are able to see just how much care and attention the owners have put into sympathetically updating the property to create a beautiful retreat which is both stylish and light-filled. The first room that guests come to is the open-plan lounge/diner, a lovely room with well-chosen furnishings, a feature fireplace, and a TV/DVD. Beyond the lounge area, the dining area is the perfect place to enjoy leisurely meals and comfortably seats four guests. The kitchen, at the rear of the property, is just as well-finished as the rest of the house and offers a good range of equipment including an oven, hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, and washing machine. Just off from the kitchen there is a convenient cloakroom with WC. Doors from the lounge/diner open onto a hidden staircase,  steep cottage style stairs which leads up to the bedrooms. The master bedroom is a charming double room benefitting from an en-suite shower and WC. The second bedroom, meanwhile, is a gorgeous twin room, off from which two steps lead down to a second en-suite shower room with a corner shower and WC.

To the rear of the property, there is an attractive garden which can be accessed from the kitchen and which offers a shingled path leading to a tranquil patio area with garden furniture. To the front of the property the driveway has space to park one car.

Lovely, comfortable, clean and well equipped cottage for self catering. Perfect location for touring North Norfolk and only 10-15 minute walk to Holt to enjoy the many cafes, pubs and unique shops.

We stayed over Christmas. Arrived to find a Christmas Tree with lights turned on and the dining table laid out. Lovely welcome. Very comfortable furnishings and plenty of kitchen appliances.

The cottage was very comfortable, especially the beds, and within walking distance of Holt which is a lovely town with many individual shops and cafes. It is also within easy reach of the coast and several National Trust properties and a trip on the steam train to Sheringham is recommended. All in all a great cottage for a holiday in North Norfolk.

Location good holt is a good base for north Norfolk , the cottage itself could do with a bit of tlc we walked in and we were greeted with paint flaking off the front door and quite a few cobwebs and needed a really good clean .

We had a lovely week at Plum Tree cottage. Holt is an excellent location for exploring the North Norfolk coast, with its wonderful beaches and walks. The garden at the cottage is delightful and an added bonus. However - as my husband has mobility problems, we feel that this property should carry a recommendation that, because of the very steep staiRead morers, it is not suitable for those with a mobility problem.

Plum Tree cottage is well located in a quiet road but within easy walking distance to the centre of Holt with its many individual shops and eating places.
