“Ideally situated, lovely cottage”
Reviewed 26 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

A really cosy, warm (we stayed in February), very well equipped and welcoming cottage. We live in the country so it was a great treat to have Holt on the doorstep for shops and to pop out for an early(ish) coffee and decide what to do for the day.
For us It is in an ideal spot for birdwatching, walking and cycling and making the most of North Norfolk. We definitely would like to go again (just hope that all these good reviews leave some weeks free!)

“Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed 29 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

In an ideal location for all the amenities of the town, the cottage was extremely warm and cosy. All the facilities in the cottage were excellent, especially the roomy walk-in shower and the lovely comfortable bed. We look forward to a return visit.

“Beautiful cottage”
Reviewed 28 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This the ideal place to stay for visiting the North Norfolk coast. It is in the centre of Holt but in a very private location.
The cottage is tastefully furnished, with everything you could need to make it a home from home.
It also has a super comfy bed with electric blanket for any chilly nights.
Would love to stay again.

“Secluded yet Central”
Reviewed 4 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Carpenters Cottages is a peaceful oasis in the middle of quite a bustling little town. You can sit in its secluded private courtyard, away from the hurly-burly of the town, and still be within a minute's walk of the local supermarket. The cottage itself is a characterful old building, fully equipped with everything you are likely to need for a comfortable stay - including wi-fi.
An added bonus for me was the piano (with a small library of sheet music), so I was able to brush up my Chopin! Holt is a nice little market town, with plenty of visitor attractions in the vicinity.

“Ideal cottage for touring North Norfolk”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Perfectly situated in the heart of Holt but incredibly secluded if that makes sense! Everything you would need for a stay is included in the cottage and the linen and towels were 1st class. Perhaps the only moan would be a larger TV is needed but that's being petty really, as we spent most of the day touring the coast and on long walks. All shops, pubs and restaurants are within a very short walk and all seemed to be of a very high quality. Worth a visit is Holkham Hall and the beach walks there are superb, also a throw back in time is Wells-next-the-Sea, never seems to have aged.

Thank you very much for your kind review. I am pleased you loved the location, were comfy and had all you needed for your stay in the cottage. I have made a note of your comment about having a larger TV and will be looking at doing this shortly. Visiting Holkham Hall and Wells-next-to-the-Sea are very much a favourite with my guests. I do hope that you can stay again at 8 Carpenters Cottages. Have a lovely Summer. Kind regards Anne
