I would recommend this place but with some reservations. The plus points are definitely the location and the garden. The small town of Holt is delightful and this property is within easy walking distance of the town centre if you are at all mobile. The garden is enclosed and very well maintained. The interior of the house is obviously someone's pride and joy, but it was not to our taste. There were numerous ornaments and bits of china in display cases all over the place. There was a random mixture of pictures on the walls and a preponderance of cherubs, oddly mixed with more modern features -quite a few with do not touch/use signs, or with screws in the display cabinets, presumably to stop guests stealing their prized assets (not much chance of that in our case!!). The picture with the waterfall sound effects in the bedroom was "interesting". There seems little point in leaving a whole collection of china dinner service with do not use labels. (The whole dining room had a bit of a Miss Havisham feel about it- if you know your Dickens) Take it away and put in some useful dishwasher proof cheap stuff that is clean and usable! Unless the cookware has been replaced I recommend you take your own (at least a wok or frying pan) as the stuff left was not great. There are several hundreds of DVDs and televisions all over the place so if you go in the winter or you like films then you will love it. We were there last summer and I have only just got round to reviewing so it might be that they have changed some of this stuff already, or that someone new has taken over, so check other reviews too. The hot tub was a good feature.
