Houghton Holiday Cottages

Houghton is a small rural village renowned for being home to Houghton Hall which is one of England's finest Palladian country houses. It was built by Great Britain‘s first Prime Minister, Sir Robert Walpole and was passed to the Cholmondeley family through marriage at the end of the eighteenth century.

Houghton Hall was built in the 1720s and has a unique history and interior, making it a wonderful place to visit with its award winning five acre garden, the contemporary sculpture park, the model soldier museum, playground and restaurant.

The Water House Houghton

The Water House | Front

Sleeps 4, from £490 to £925 per week

The Water House is a unique single storey listed building, dating back to the 1720s, situated in a peaceful part of the Houghton Estate, with unrivalled views across the famous deer park. It has been tastefully renovated and refurbished to provide an idyllic rural retreat for up to 4 guests with spacious living areas and 2 beautifully presented comfortable bedrooms, each with their own bath/shower room. There is a lovely sheltered courtyard garden which houses the remains of the old treadmill and a large, fenced lawned garden which backs directly onto the deer park with a herd of over 600 white fallow deer and small groups of other rare species from around the world. Guests staying here have the advantage of a free pass to the beautiful Palladian Houghton Hall with its award winning gardens, contemporary sculpture park, model soldier museum, playground and restaurant (during open season and excluding events/exhibitions). Approached by a quiet country lane, this cottage really has to be the ultimate hideaway, yet it's only 10 miles to the Georgian village of Burnham Market and under 20 minutes drive to the glorious North Norfolk coast.
