The Meadows is set back from the road with a large shingled drive providing ample off-street parking for several cars in the front drive. There is a five-bar gate to ensure that the gardens are fully enclosed.

The generously sized enclosed gardens surround the property, with a paved terrace with garden furniture and gas barbecue at the back and the remainder mainly lawned, providing plenty of space for children to run around. The back garden is fenced to offer privacy from the bordering small paddock with stables, where occasionally ponies may be found.

It is only a short walk to the coastal path leading to the unspoilt sandy beach. There is also an excellent local pub (The White Horse) within a few minutes walk.


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 had a really lovely stay - the Bungalow was warm & cosy, spacious and comfortable - our second stay here. Beds, bedding & sheets all luxurious , a real Joy to be back there! On arrival we were greeted by a warm, cosy environment, complete with Christmas tree, chocolates for all, a bag of logs for the wood burner and large tray for the turkey - thank goodness as we had Forgotten! Comfy sofas, plenty of space for the grandsons, especially the conservatory where they could do their drawing & make Lego! Our first Christmas away from home, and one of the best!

The Doyle, 5th of January 2024

A comfortable spacious bungalow in a very quiet location. We had a very relaxing week and enjoyed stunning walks without once using our car. Thank you. Stunning walks from the doorstep, viewing geese from the garden, excellent pub close by, comfortable bed.

The Owen's, 19th of October 2023

Overall a very nice stay thank you. The cottage is well kept and was clean on arrival. A good location near the Holme reserve and beaches. Also close to the Bus stop!

The Mankelow's, 19th of October 2023

Lovely open living and kitchen space, opening out onto the garden. Just right for our family meet up. Vert well equipped kitchen. Made some good meals and baked a birthday cake. Frequently saw Red Kites flying over the garden. Lovely public field directly opposite the gate, with benches and picnic tables.
Generally the whole house was clean and very comfortable with nice quality bedding. Would love to return. Stay highlights, Wildlife and beach.

The Hall's, 22nd of August 2023

A family home in the middle of a small village, close to the pub and a lovely walk to the beach.
Well equipped, with a great garden big enough for a game of rounders.
Plenty of places to visit on a wet afternoon with the Grandchildren.

The Comper's, 4th of August 2023

Proximity to coastal path and other visitor attractions. Peaceful location. Bright, spacious, homely, well equipped and nicely presented property.

The Robertson's, 20th of April 2023

We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely spacious bungalow. It is very well equipped to a high standard , warm with comfortable beds and good quality bed linen and towels. The garden is a good size and there is plenty of parking space. Lots of space in the bungalow, information available and games or books to read during bad weather. It is only a short distance to the White Horse pub where we were made welcome and served a good variety of meals. The beach is also close by and a handy green space opposite either for a quick walk or sit on the seats available. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the location too. A big thank you and hope to return again health permitting.

The Holder's, 6th of April 2023

The Meadows was a great base for our family holiday in Norfolk. A short walk to the beach, nature reserve & the pub, with the added bonus of access to the Coastliner bus service, if we didn't want to drive. Plenty of room for our party of 6 to spread out & have their own space. Well appointed with pretty much everything required for a relaxing time.
Sunset on Holme beach. Walking to the Norfolk Wildlife Trust cafe along the coast. Sunday lunch at The Lidge in Old Hunstanton. Breakfast at The Parlour in Binham. Walking from Cley to Blakeney. Days out at BeWILDerwood in Hoveton & Holkham Hall tree walk & zipwire

The Shearmans, 31st of March 2023

A wonderful place to stay, well equipped, very nicely decorated, and bathrooms with decent sized sinks and lighting. Towels were big and fluffy, also lots of well lit mirrors. Lots of space in the entrance hall with plenty of hooks for coats. The garden and driveway were large and not overlooked. We loved our short break here and would be happy to return. We had a fantastic weekend all together which we don’t get to do very often, and everyone enjoyed staying in this wonderful house. We loved staying here and would love to return in warmer weather so we can enjoy the garden!

The Ashworth's, 15th of March 2023

We have now stayed at The Meadows twice and will certainly book again. As mentioned previously the property is clean and comfortable in an excellent location and provides good value. It's in a good location very near to a good pub serving meals. Good quality mattresses and bedding. Well equipped kitchen and plenty of comfortable seating areas. Ample safe on site parking a plus point

The Wells Family, 8th of October 2021

Spaciousness of the house but also the garden, everywhere was very safe for our 1 yr old granddaughter. Lovely thick, soft, fluffy white towels. Very happy with the location and the cottage, weather changeable, but overall a wonderful family holiday after freedom from lockdown.

Lorraine, 23rd of July 2021

The Meadows is light, spacious and airy in a good location. A lovely place for a holiday in a quiet village. Only a short walk to the beach and coastal path. Very handy having a good pub serving food just round the corner.

The Turner Family, 25th of June 2021

At The Meadows we like the accessible parking. Good location. Very quiet. Good quality mattresses and bedding. Very well equipped. We had a very comfortable stay at Meadows and have already booked again this year.

The Wells', 21st of May 2021

The privacy and a peaceful location at The Meadows we liked as we have at home. The property was perfect for us as we too live in a spacious bungalow. The Meadows is a very well maintained holiday home.

The Norman Family, 23rd of April 2021

Loved it! - It felt larger than expected from the photos and proximity to the beach was great. it was beautifully spotless. We liked The Meadows for - The large open plan living/kitchen/dining space, with windows all the way around making it so light and airy. We would stay again!

The Kemp's, 27th of December 2019

We like the size and layout of The Meadows. A lovely property we all enjoyed our stay, plenty of space for six people and would definitely use again.

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.
