This beautiful, quaint cottage is perfect for one or two visitors, and is situated right in the town centre of Holt. It is a short walk to the shops including pretty boutiques and cafes and restaurants, and is also right by Budgens supermarket. Close by are lovely unspoilt beaches, so beach and countryside walks aplenty around here! Parts of Norfolk feel like you’re stepping back in time. Due to the circumstances that unfolded while I was staying here, I spent my time indoors at the cottage, and it was so cosy and pretty. There are plenty of books, dvds, piano sheet music and a lovely piano to play, and I also loved cooking whilst here. Highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a Norfolk getaway, and I plan to return in future! Anne (the owner) was really friendly and helpful, and very quick to get back to my enquiries about booking.
We have stayed at 8 Carpenter's several times, usually at colder times of the year, and it never disappoints. Although anything that you might need in a town, such as cafes, pubs, restaurants and a supermarket, are on your doorstep it is completely quiet and very comfortable and warm. Great to come back to after a 'bracing' Norfolk day (the bird reserve at Cley is barely 10 minutes drive away).
The cottage is a real home from home for us, very well equipped and obviously caringly maintained by the owner.
Very well equipped -even has a piano! -. Excellent heating, which was certainly needed in February. Right in the centre of Holt close to all shops, restaurants. A lovely stay
This cottage is situated in Holt, just minutes form the shops, pubs and restaurants. It is hidden away from the main road, but within walking distance of all local amenities. It provided the perfect base for exploring the North Norfolk coast and also the local sights a little inland. The cottage is cosy and warm and has everything you need for a short break away. The inbuilt wine cooler is a nice touch, as was the welcoming bucks fizz and cake. The piano was in tune and perfect for two musicians to unwind and relax. The cottage was spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you need.
