Crammed full of original features and combining traditional style with modern convenience, this superb property offers comfortable accommodation for up to six people.

This 17th Century mid-terrace cottage is well situated in the large village of Briston, just four miles from the market town of Holt. Full of character, this property offers exposed oak beams, a fantastic inglenook fireplace in the sitting room and two en-suite bedrooms, providing a great base for anyone looking to explore this lovely area. The accommodation has been renovated to an exceptionally high standard to provide guests with a comfortable, cosy home from home. The village itself provides a good range of local amenities, whilst the Georgian town of Holt is close by for all your holiday essentials.


Fred's Cottage was lovely, I particularly liked the layout of it with a good kitchen and lounge etc. Particularly liked that there were en suites for both bedrooms. It was local to pubs and shops with easy access to green space to walk the dog, I found it very relaxing.
Mr Collins

The cottage is gorgeous, cosy and central to many places of interest. Cleanliness was excellent and there were good friendly neighbours. We would book again.
Mrs Smith

Liked everything, it was very comfortable and relaxing. It was very well furnished especially with the 2 en suites and toilet & shower downstairs. I would definitely book it again.
Mrs King

A lovely, warm, comfortable cottage. The perfect place for a relaxing holiday.
Mrs Darby

This was our second visit to Fred's Cottage, and we enjoyed it just as much as the first. It has a very peaceful atmosphere and is also very comfortable. We felt very relaxed the moment we stepped inside, and again we took advantage of several meals at the pub opposite. The village of Briston is also very pleasant with good shopping facilities. We hope to return sometime.
Mrs Winslow
