A pretty village which is a hidden gem located on the North Norfolk Heritage Coast. Holme has an expansive flat sandy beach, ideal for beach games and sand castles during low tide.

In Autumn Holme Dunes is a great area to spot migrating birds from the NWT Nature reserve with a number of hides and trails.


Holme is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is also where the 50-mile Roman Peddars Way walking route meets the North Norfolk Coastal Path. The village is also on the coastal hopper bus route for those of you that wish to travel the coast line. In the centre of the village is the traditional White Horse pub which has a splendid garden with play area to enjoy a bite to eat on a fine day.


As well as various military remains from the Second World War that can be glimpsed from the Nature Reserve, the beach is famous for the 1998 discovery of a hidden Bronze Age timber circle known as ‘Sea Henge’. Now on view at Kings Lynn Museum.


Old Hunstanton is the neighbouring village and the Golf club course boarders onto Holme. Old Hunstanton has some great eateries, lighthouse and fabulous walks along the unspoilt beaches. Hunstanton has its iconic striped cliffs, many amusements, Sea-life centre, leisure pool and traditional promenade. There is also a horse riding stables close by too!

Guest reviews

We stayed in May 2024. The location is amazing - very quiet and feels very secluded, but near the beach. The house is lovely, with plenty of storage space. We knew the wrap-around garden was not enclosed before we went, but it would not take too much to make the garden secure, so the toddlers/dogs could not go wandering down the lane. The rooms were very nicely decorated, beds and sofas were really comfortable, and it was well equipped with everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. The welcome basket was another lovely surprise - thank you :o) : I have been holidaying in Norfolk for around 15 years, visiting about 3 time each year, and I didn't realise that Sowerby's had a holiday cottage rental business; I usually use Norfolk Hideaways or Barefoot Retreats. I was really impressed with this house, the interior, the facilities and the location. I will definitely be a returning customer to Sowerbys Holiday Cottages.

The Eaton-Jones, 27th of May 2024

This is a lovely house the photo is a true likeness and it is decorated really nice and very cosy, although it is dog friendly it is open plan and as dogs are not allowed upstairs or on sofas it is difficult to contain them in the kitchen area when there are no doors. We absolutely loved the homeliness of this cottage. The small walk to the huge expanse of beautiful beach was fantastic.

The Court's, 29th of December 2023

The cottage is in a great location walking distance from the beach and is spacious and well maintained We had a great time. Walks on the beach with our two dogs and golf at Hunstanton.

The Howard's, 24th of August 2023

The perfect location just minutes from the beautiful beach and the abundance of birdlife in the area. With the cottage being on a no-through road it was extremely peaceful as does not suffer from noisy traffic.

The Barrow's, 4th of February 2023

Great well equipped and very comfortable house in a very good location. We loved hearing the sea from the house and being able to walk around the nature reserve close by.

The Turner's, 14th of May 2021

Beamish was very peaceful surrounded by birds and animals. We liked that beamish is away from hustle and bustle, close to sea, marsh and walks. Very comfortable, clean and well cared for with everything we needed. Tiled throughout downstairs so good for dogs! Warm, nice and light.

Higgin Party, 25th of September 2020

The kitchen was extremely well stocked of everything we could need on our trip and the lovely welcome basket was a nice added touch. The garden had so many visitors that we spent a lot of time first thing in the morning "watching" out of the window.
We like Beamish for the location to the reserve and the beach.

All Sowerbys holiday cottages are supplied with bed linen and towels and the cost of heating is included in the rental price.

Electric Vehicle charging

Cars may only be charged if there is an EV charging point fitted at the property. The cost of electricity is NOT included in the rental price and Sowerbys Holiday Cottages must be notified if the charger is used and an additional surcharge will be made. Due to insurance purposes, guests must never charge their car using a standard outdoor plug or an extension cable linking to a domestic plug. This is not permitted because of fire regulations regarding wiring, earthing rods and voltage restrictions; it poses a serious fire risk to standard 13 amp sockets and there is a real danger that the body of the vehicle could become live.
