The Old Smithy Holme-next-the-sea

Sleeps 2, from £645 to £1040 per week

Old Smithy is a luxurious conversion of a traditional blacksmiths, imaginatively refurbished to five star boutique hotel standards, with many original features and new contemporary features like a glass floor panel, resulting in undoubtedly one of the best cottages for two in the North Norfolk area. This gorgeous quirky cottage is ideally situated in a peaceful location on the edge of Holme marshes and close to the Peddars Way with lovely views across the marshes towards the sea, with its own private bird hide in the garden, making it the perfect hideaway throughout the year for anyone interested in bird-watching, walking or simply wanting to escape. Outside there is a lovely covered front terrace and an attractive enclosed rear garden, within easy walking distance of an old smugglers pub, The White Horse and the coast.

The owners have a beach hut at Old Hunstanton which can be rented for £225 (no daily rate), the availability is from Saturday morning to Thursday afternoon. Please note that this is bookable on a first come first served basis as they have three further properties that are able to take advantage of the beach hut.

Guest Reviews

We had a lovely restful stay at The Old Smithy.
It was peaceful and comfortable with everything we needed , in a good village location.

Jennings Party - 29/09/2017

Holme-next-the-sea

Location

This pretty village is located within the North Norfolk Heritage Coast and is renowned for being the northern end of the 50 mile long Roman Peddars Way that starts near Thetford. At Holme the Peddars Way path meets with the Norfolk Coastal Path which goes all the way along the coast to Cromer.
Holme is also famous for being the site of Sea Henge, a 4,500 thousand year old Bronze Age tree circle discovered on the beach. There is a fabulous stretch of open sandy beach backed by sand dunes and the Nature Reserve where there are a number of hides and many different varieties of birds have been spotted.
There is a good local pub, The White Horse, serving good local food and ales. Hunstanton golf course, a renowned links course, runs into Holme and there are riding stables nearby too.
