Perfect relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Our second time at this fantastic house. The annexe works brilliantly if you are two families, or, in our case, with relatives. Everyone then gathers around the pool or in the front courtyard. So much inside and outside space to relax in, whatever the weather (and this year it was brilliant). A very welcoming and easy house to be in. Also lots of nearby lanes and villages to walk, run, cycle to. And then of course the beautiful North Norfolk countryside and coast. A winning combination.

A comfortable and attractive home that worked well for 2 adults, 4 teenagers and a large-ish dog

  • 5 of 5

A lot of thought has gone into the guest experience and the house is well equipped without being too full of the owners’ own stuff (which can in other properties make you feel like you are trespassing in someone else’s house). I really appreciated the local walking maps. We would all be happy to stay in this property again.

Lovely Norfolk Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Old Stables is a very comfortable cottage in a pretty, small village (Little Thornage) but conveniently close to Holt and the north Norfolk coast. It is perfect for two families, with two bedrooms in the main cottage and two more in an annexe across a courtyard, which has benches and a BBQ and is enclosed and safe for dogs (and young children). The pool area/garden is on the other side of the annexe and looked lovely for the summer. The house is well equipped, is nice and warm with an AGA in the kitchen, the two main bedrooms are spacious and there is a large and comfortable upstairs living room with a fireplace.

We went on many and varied walks with our dogs - beach, woodland, country parks - and played golf on three beautiful links courses, all within 20 to 40 minutes' drive. There are many good pubs/restaurants nearby, including one that is 10 minutes' walk away, and excellent farm shops, fishmonger's etc in and around Holt.

There was a tea tray waiting for us on our arrival and a bottle of prosecco in the fridge. The owners were very helpful and friendly when we had to contact them about a couple of small things.

Our party consisted of four adults, three teenagers and three dogs and we all had a great time.

A fantastic place to stay

We had a very enjoyable week here and made full use of the fantastic pool. The accommodation is spacious and well equipped and in a good location to explore the coast. We loved it here and hope very much to return.

Lovely, comfortable and well equipped holiday cottage in beautiful surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week at The Old Stables. With three generations of family there was something for everyone to enjoy. We were fortunate to have great weather and all made good use of the private swimming pool, though, as it is heated we would have used it whatever the weather. The cottage itself was really comfortable and had everything you could possibly need for a holiday stay and the layout with separate two bedroom annex worked well for our family. We especially liked the large kitchen, dining and lounge area where we could all comfortably spend time together. The cottage is surrounded with lovely countryside and is a great base from which to explore the lovely coast and villages of North Norfolk.

The North Norfolk steam railway which runs between Holt and Sheringham is a delight. There are gorgeous walks on the coast. Fantastic cafes and delis, the area is foodie heaven, Kids will love crabbing from the quayside at Blakeney and Wells and playing in the ford over the Glaven river some 300 yards from the cottage.
