It's only a short walk to the village playing fields with a childrens' playground and a tennis court, and a stream which is home to a huge family of ducks. There are also some fantastic country and coastal walks to enjoy nearby.



The attractive village of South Creake (twinned with North Creake) has a lovely village green at its heart with the river Burn that runs through. When visiting the village, you will see the much-loved resident ducks crossing the road from the houses for a swim on the river. There is a lovely leafy recreation ground, park and village hall making it the hub of the village. You will often see local produce such as cakes and homegrown vegetables for sale from the small way-side stalls in the village and there is a thriving plant nursery and cafe. There is a welcoming community spirt in the village, making it a perfect place to unwind and take in the Norfolk air.

The Ostrich Inn, dating from the 1800s, has been refurbished to a high standard and now serves delicious locally sourced food in attractive surroundings.


On the hill above the village can be found the remnants of Bloodgate Hill fort, an Iron Age fortification that is the largest hill fort in Norfolk. It probably dates back around 300 years before the Romans. Roman coins and pottery have been found in the surrounding farmlands of the village.


Well worth a visit is Creake Abbey just outside of the village of North Creake with a lovely speciality shops. There is also an award-winning farmers' market on the last Saturday of each month. Close to Fakenham is the Pensthorpe Nature Reserve making for a lovely day out with walks around the lakes, gardens and also great fun for all the family with splendid children’s indoor and outdoor play areas. With the vast sandy beaches of the North Norfolk Coast just a short journey away at Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham, this village is a great base from which to explore North Norfolk.

Guest reviews

Holly House is a very well equipped holiday home with a very pleasant, well kept garden. It is on a secluded road, which made it a peaceful spot for a break. It was warm and welcoming when we arrived. The beds were extremely comfortable and the sitting rooms were cosy. The layout of the kitchen and dining area, with views to the lovely garden was my favourite spot in the house. Comfortable beds and warm house to come back to after bracing walks in the Norfolk coast and countryside.

The Turner-Wall's, 8th of May 2024

We love staying in Holly House, where it's warm, comfortable and peaceful and has everything we need. We walk the coast, get blown about by the weather, and it's always great to be on those huge sandy beaches with that big sky.

Please say a big big thank you to Roger the gardener and Bobbie the housekeeper for their friendliness and kindness.“.

Trish & Lilley, 27th of October 2023

Lovely, lovely cottage. The owner has covered all bases thus making Holly House easy. Easy to relax, to operate the various bits and pieces, easy to find the many things you need on holiday. All catered for. And so comfortable with delightful, enclosed garden for dog and human. Plus a great location. Loved walking the playing fields with dog. Close to all ‘places you want to see’. Definitely be back, Trish & Lilley x

“Home from home. We loved our stay. Superbly, comfortably equipped. We have so enjoyed a well wanted relaxing break. Thank you! A lovely sisters week away.”

Moira & Amanda, 9th of September 2023

Holly House more than lived up to our expectations. We particularly liked the spacious well equipped kitchen/dinner. The bedrooms were super comfy and we appreciated the modern bathrooms with great showers. We were blessed with hot weather and all (including our dogs!) enjoyed being out in the garden which is prettier and bigger than we expected. We enjoyed visiting the beaches at Holkham and Brancaster, walking with our dogs along the coastal paths and excellent meals including dinner at the Ostrich in South Creake.

The Robert's, 13th of July 2023

Thank you so much for our stay in your lovely home. We’ve had the best time. We love Norfolk. Thanks!!! for the lovely cake.

Better than Expected - You can't tell until you're in a property how it feels and smells. Holly House is warm and comfortable and feels good! The kitchen is well equipped which is great because we like to cook. The heating was easy to adjust too!

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.
