The Cottage was beautifully converted in 2005 and with its wonderful internal features won the Mayors Special Award in the same year. With lovely views across the marshes towards the sea, the perfect hideaway throughout the year for anyone interested in walking, bird-watching or simply wanting to escape.

This pretty village is located within the North Norfolk Heritage Coast and is renowned for being the Northern end of the 50 mile long Roman Peddars Way that starts near Thetford. At Holme the Peddars Way path meets with the Norfolk Coastal Path which goes all the way along the coast to Cromer.

Holme-next-the-Sea is also famous for being the site of Sea Henge, a 4500 year old Bronze Age tree circle discovered on the beach. There is a fabulous stretch of open sandy beach backed by sand dunes and the Nature Reserve where there are a number of hides and many varieties of birds have been spotted.

There is a good local pub, The White Horse, serving good local food and ales. Hunstanton golf course, a renowned links course, runs into Holme and there are riding stables nearby too.
