With comfortable and spacious accommodation for up to five people, this charming, 17th Century property blends modern convenience and traditional features to create a warm and friendly atmosphere.

This charming detached cottage dates from the 17th Century and is set in the quiet village of Briston, just four miles from Holt. Offering cosy, comfortable and well-appointed accommodation, this property boasts a sitting room with low ceiling, exposed beams and open fireplace, as well as three bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen and a ground floor bathroom. The established garden at to the rear of the cottage is ideal for relaxing, and offers two sitting areas in addition to a summer house. There are numerous amenities close by and the surrounding area is packed with fun activities for the whole family.


The cottage was in a central position for Thursford, Sherringham and Cromer. The garden was fully-enclosed if you have a dog and the wooden beams, the rope to pull you up the steep curved stairs and the large wood burner all added to the feel and comfort of the cottage.
Mr Banks

The cottage was excellent and without doubt one of the best we have stayed in. We particularly liked the summerhouse but the accommodation, overall, was superb. Everything possible was provided and there is nothing, whatsoever, that we could complain about. The location is also first class for exploring the north Norfolk coast. Wells, Holkham (Hall and Bay), Blakeney, Holt, Sheringham and Cromer are all in easy reach.
Mr Fosker

A really great English cottage - almost out of an American film. The original cottage is one room downstairs and two up, with kitchen, bathroom and downstairs cabin sized bedroom attached as extensions at some stage. Excellently equipped. The really good things: downstairs bedroom by bathroom for elderly relative who couldn't do stairs; great sun trap garden and summer house; awesome fireplace;really good central North Norfolk location; good Pub 43 paces down the road. The quirky things: Parking off road a challenge for a big car like ours, ancient staircase a challenge for the unsteady, especially after the pub;second bedroom is found via first bedroom The irritating things: electric storage heaters ( I hate them); only one load of logs so had to buy more;no wifi and no O2 signal (other mobile signals ok ish) Dog loved lying in front of fire after a great run on the beach every day.. Try the village store/butcher/baker ....awesome

Hollyhedge Cottage provided us with the perfect country escape. A beautifully maintained cottage with everything we needed and more. The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in and the open fire created a lovely relaxed atmosphere to spend time as a family. We will definitely be returning!

The cottage was quaint in a small quiet village. It had a lovely atmosphere which was what we were looking for.
