Greystones is a newly renovated, beautifully presented coastal three-storey house with stunning open views across the marshes and out to sea. This superb period Norfolk flint and brick family second home has been imaginatively extended and renovated, with works completed in May 2016 including a fabulous light and spacious new kitchen cleverly designed to enjoy the lovely views, a contemporary downstairs shower room, new utility room and a newly landscaped private garden. It is ideally located in a quiet lane in the heart of Holme-next-the-Sea, backing onto the marshes, within a short walk of the coastal path and Holme's gorgeous unspoilt sandy beach and the nature reserve. This is a lovely house for two families and friends, with five good-sized lovely comfortable bedrooms (two on the second floor and three on the first floor) and four bath/shower rooms, with the advantage of underfloor and central heating, making this a luxurious and comfortable "home from home" from which to enjoy the beauty of North Norfolk throughout the year.

What a gorgeous house - so well equipped, comfy beds and a beautiful position. We had wonderful weather - this is a firm favourite and we will be back! Thank you
Love the improvements 5th year booking Greystones roll on 2017 holiday. Thank you
We had a great week in a lovely house in a fantastic area. Will definitely come again
Thank you very much indeed for a marvellous time. Your house is superbly (and really comfortably) equipped. We were re-visiting old haunts from our childhood (40-50 years ago) when we came to Norfolk as children (some of us) We realised that a week was nothing like long enough - there was so much to do - Sandringham carriage driving, Holkham Hall, the Beaches, Wells-next-the-sea, Kings Lynn - and much more - so much to do. Thank you again for the lovely week
A wonderful house that has accommodated our family so well, ages ranged from 9 months to 77 years!
Wonderful holiday in such a stunning location, worked wonderfully well for us all. Really gorgeous cottage - beautifully decorated and so very well equipped, everything we needed and more was here and all those attentions to detail really are appreciated. village beach great and excellent walks right here. Thank you for all the thought and care that has gone into the house.

Kate and Nathan - 16/09/2013
Beautiful house/location. Excellently furnished - very tasteful and fully equipped. 10 mins walk to beach. Wonderful family holiday, thank you.
Mason Family - 16/08/2013
Despite it being the coldest, snowiest Easter we can remember, we all (ages 6 weeks to 65) had a wonderful time. This was mainly due to this lovely house which has been so thoughtfully furnished and provisioned. The wood burning stove is a bonus, and after exhilarating walks on the shore, it was a joy to return home. We hope to stay here again, thank you.
Jones Family - 16/03/2013
Great house, spotlessly clean. A lot of thought has gone into making this house very comfortable. Thank you, we had a lovely cosy annual get together.
Colemans - 16/02/2013
A lovely house in a lovely setting. Christmas was spent watching the Barn Owls hunt in the fields behind and the occasional glimpse of a Marsh Harrier. A perfect spot for a family gathering.

Holme is also famous for being the site of Sea Henge, a 4,500 thousand 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 different 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.
