  • This was our 3rd attempt to stay in no.8 - twice cancelled (due to covid) and third time luck - but we still really didn't expect such a warm welcome
    - smiling faces and the strains of a boogie piano as we crunched across the pebbles - heralding a lovely week in and around Holt.
    Thank you for making it possible. Happy days!

    the terrace,very quiet. Lovely to sit outside when the sun shines . Very convenient for all the shops in Holt. We tend not to use the car, but catch the coast bus, hopping on and off at all the coastal villages.We hope to be back soon.

  • Our second visit - we love this cottage! It is so relaxing and cosy. Everything you need to recharge your batteries. A wonderful break after lockdown in a beautiful town with fantastic amenities. Wonderful facilities provided by the owner with everything you could need thought of. Highly recommended. Will be booking again

  • Beautiful cottage in lovely town of Holt.
    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. 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.

  • Really good weather. Very Relaxing. Just what we need to recharge our batteries. Lovely touch with fresh flowers. Will be back again. Thanks for my Birthday song (on piano)!

    — Irene S., 14 Mar 2020
  • We have stayed several times and it never disappoints. 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. Lovely to be back again. Thank you for the tulips!
