Village

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.

History

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.

Guest reviews

We enjoyed our visit, cottage very well equipped, clean and well presented. Ideal for our German Shepherd with field opposite! Cleanliness, Quality of furnishings and excellent kitchen appliances and tableware.

The Steer's, 5th of July 2024

We found Greystones an excellent property, probably the best we have rented in 41 years of holidays in N Norfolk. Beautifully presented and so well equipped. 3 generations had a great week despite mixed weather. The beach is a pleasant walk the house is a delight to return to. The peace and quiet, the comfortable beds, cooking and eating in the lovely space, the magnificent views, the wildlife and birdwatching from the house, garden and hides.

The Brewster's, 4th of June 2024

Excellent house we all had a lovely stay.

The Lawrence's, 23rd of May 2024

Second visit to this wonderful house. All our needs catered for. Had a lovely time. Hope to visit again. Blessed with good weather. Loved sitting in the garden watching the wildlife. A local told us where to find 2 bird hides close by where we spotted many birds. Wonderful walks as well.

The Belson's, 22nd of May 2024

We had a lovely relaxing holiday as an extended family spending quality time together. The house was lovely, comfortable and welcoming [as was the Welcome Pack!]. It is very well appointed with equipment, bedding, towels, etc. The heating system was efficient and we had constant hot water, bearing in mind 8 adults! The location is great, easy to walk to beach and the Piece Park across the road is superb for the dogs. Just a pity our stay coincided with the closure of The White Horse!

The Tindall's, 9th of May 2024

Great rental with lots of comfy lounge space, wonderful kitchen diner and good sized bedrooms/bathrooms. Very well fitted out with everything you could need. It was like a home from home. Good location on north Norfolk coast with all its beaches and entertainment. We love this part of England and have had many lovely holidays here. This was the best holiday home we’ve rented! Great accommodation and social space for celebrating my 70th with my family. Well set up for dogs too. We’ll definitely be back. Lovely personal welcome note and basket. Much appreciated. Thank you for being able to use your lovely property.

6 adults, 2 teenagers and a baby - we all had a great time here. The property is excellent and has all you could want for a good self catering holiday. We had the added bonus of wall to wall sunshine so all meals were out on the patio with the beautiful views. The bird life is impressive, we were fascinated by the owl that made regular early evening swoops across the field at the end of the garden. A delightful property in a superb location.
