Attractions near your Holt cottage
Hop aboard the 'Poppy Line', affectionate name for the
North Norfolk Railway, and travel by steam through glorious
countryside to the delightful seaside town of Sheringham.
Enjoy a guided tour and watch flour being milled at Letheringsett
Mill. View tanks and other military vehicles at the Muckleburgh
Collection. Drive to Felbrigg Hall, a stunning National Trust
estate a little further afield but well worth a visit. Or enjoy a
day amid nature at the Holt Country Park, where you'll find
flora, fauna and wildlife, along with nature trails, picnic tables
and a play area. And if your holiday falls during July/August,
remember the summer festival.
At the end of the day, curl up in your Holt holiday cottage or
head into town for a mouth-watering supper in a pub or restaurant -
there's a fantastic selection to choose from.
