Former Ale House nestled in the center of Holt. Decorated in a beautiful vintage shabby chic style.

The property has been skillfully converted into a delightful and charming holiday home. The current owners have spent many hours carefully restoring and refurbishing this Grade 2 listed house, ensuring that original beams, and features such as fireplaces are retained, whilst also adding a contemporary touch to allow for extremely comfortable living.

Decorated in a beautiful vintage shabby chic style. The Old Paul Pry dates from 1715, and was named after a well known local solicitor, famed for leaving his umbrella behind so that he could return ! The property has been skillfully converted into a delightful and charming holiday home. The current owners have spent many hours carefully restoring and refurbishing this Grade 2 listed house, ensuring that original beams, and features such as fireplaces are retained, whilst also adding a contemporary touch to allow for extremely comfortable living. The two double bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, and the two twin rooms share a shower room. There are many cafes and restaurants and shops on the doorstep, all just a few steps away, but should you wish to cook, then there is a fully equipped kitchen, with electric oven and a hob, fridge, freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, and tumble dryer. There is also a downstairs cloakroom and wc. The comfortable lounge has a wood burner, and a flat screen TV/DVD/CD player. WiFi is also available Dining room comfortably seats eight people. Ideally situated in the heart of the popular and bustling Georgian Town of Holt, the property is a superb base for exploring the North Norfolk coast and all it has to offer. Guests will benefit from having the exclusive use of the delightful enclosed courtyard gardens of the Folly Tea room, between the hours of 20.00 and 08.00, and a reserved table in a quiet sunny corner of the garden during opening hours. The Old Paul Pry is very versatile, and can be used by couples or families or groups. It has 3 floors, with the two upper floors housing the bedrooms. These are reached by Norfolk Winder staircases - as is typical for a Norfolk Grade 2 listed house of its age. The staircases are carpeted and have hand rails, but are also quite steep, so may not be entirely suitable for guests with mobility problems. There is no parking directly at the property, but there is car park just behind it, and the owners will pay for one car parked here for the duration of the holiday. ( Albert St Car Park) A superb base in North Norfolk for both summer and winter holidays. We offer short breaks of 3 or 4 nights, as well as weekly lets. Changeover days are either Monday or Friday so that we can accommodate Long weekends, ( Friday to Monday) or midweek breaks ( Monday to Friday) or full weeks (commencing on either Monday or Friday). In the off- peak season we can sometimes offer some flexibility with changeover days so please do ask if you have particular requirements Bed Linen is included, as are towels and tea towels Please bring your own beach towels More
