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 enjoyed our two week break at The Old Barn. Plenty of room to spread out. We liked the separation of the kitchen, dining room and lounge. we really enjoyed our stay and the two couples who joined us, at separate times, were also very impressed. Same again next year? was their parting comments.

The Monkcom's, 24th of November 2023

Fantastic coastal walks, friendly local characterful pub, warm spacious comfortable cottage in a good location. Husband enjoyed the log burner! We all really enjoyed the cottage- one of the best we have stayed in. Comfortable beds and sofas, well equipped, tastefully furnished and uncluttered but homely.

The Fletche's, 11th of November 2023

This is our fifth year staying in the Old Barn. We love it. Such a lovely spacious house. Enclosed safe garden. Well equipped. We love the garden room too. In nice weather eating round the table in the garden is a real treat.

The digges', 18th of October 2023

We used Old Barn as the venue for a belated Ruby Wedding celebration as it was a convenient location for family members arriving from Sussex, Nottingham and North Yorkshire.The house provided plenty of space for six adults and two children plus a dog. It was very well equipped especially the kitchen. We also appreciated the stair gates having a two year old as part of our group. The house and garden appeared well cared for as well as being clean and tidy. Plenty of parking for three cars. We enjoyed some lovely family time together sharing meals in the spacious dining room. We also took the opportunity to take the children to the beach and all went on a Seal Watching trip from Morston Quay. Also enjoyed a great walk along the huge beach from Holkham to Wells next the Sea and back through the pine dunes. Discovered the lovely Deli at Thornham for Tea and Scones. A really beautiful house ideally located on the North Norfolk Coast. Will have happy memories of our long weekend in the Old Barn!

Kingston Family, 4th of September 2020

More than comfortable with excellent facilities and space. Better than Expected, the inside and outside space was more than expected. Lovely property. Sowerbys and the owner were more than helpful.

Linda, 23rd of August 2019

Even bigger and better than we had expected! So much space for the children to run around in and separate spaces for the adults. My children were staying at Old Barn with their families and found it had everything they could want.

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.
