Pros - The house is very clean, interesting and with great character. The owner is friendly and helpful. Holt is pretty and a great location. Cons – As a tall person I banged my head on every doorframe! The stairs are difficult for young children or the old. Holt is expensive. However, I would stay there again if I had the chance.
Booked it with Judith and I may add what a lovely lady to deal with, so friendly and accommodating it makes a great difference, nothing was too much trouble.
The property itself is delightful, having en suites for each bedroom was a great help, our parents aren't that mobile but they managed the stairs fine just come down them back wards.
A great place for food was the Lighthouse Inn in Walcott around 20 miles away but beautiful food and the landlord and staff are fab.
Also, the car park around the back is £27.50 for a 7 day pass, well worth spending the money on this, you can also use it again in North Norfolk car parks if they are council run.
In Holt there are some delightful little boutiques which you will get unusual things and lots of antiquey kind of place.
We also visited Blakeney, Wells next the Sea, Cromer, and many more, very seaside places, not alot in some of them but so pretty and well worth a visit.
It goes without saying that there is the Folley Tea rooms which are absolutely delightful, extremely reasonable and a fabulous atmosphere - well worth a visit.
On that after very relaxing a lovely week at the Old Priory I will sign off, a must to visit and lovely Judith made it even more welocoming, thank you.
This holiday house is located right in the centre of town and Holt itself boasts butchers, fishmongers, green grocers as well as nice pubs and cafés. The stairs to the 2nd floor are treacherous so need to be taken slowly. The weakest room is the kitchen because there is no storage space but ultimately the place is spotless and a fabulous place to stay. I only mention the negatives to be totally upfront but really, I'm being picky. I'd definitely visit again and having the use of the Folly's garden at night was ace. Muckleburgh, Blakeney and seal safaris ect all make the area enjoyable and the house boasts so many bathrooms and amenities that it's the perfect spot for a family friendly holiday.
We have just visited holt for the first time and stayed at the paul pry
Lovely place very quaint with everything on the doorstep
During our stay we travelled around and visited many of the surrounding areas and can highly recommend sherringham
In holt there is a large fully stocked supermarket a five minute walk away but I had organised a home shopping delivery from Sainsbury's which was ideal as it saved wasting time as we were only there for five days
The property itself was lovely tastefully decorated with high quality fixtures and fittings
If I could be critical I would suggest making more of the dining room i.e. another television or radion as the main living room was quite compact and even though there were sufficient chairs you couldn't really relax as they were all compact and upright
The kitchen has limited storage but is sufficient for a short stay
The beds were very comfortable but noisy as they were traditional sprung frames but saying that we all slept well
I would definitely recommend the property for a short stay but I think a week plus would be a bit much
Great stay plenty of space for everyone.
Nice dining room so we all ate together and played games on the large table in there.
Right in centre of Holt so great for shops and restaurants.
Would definitely use this house again. WiFi good beds comfortable shower and bath all great.
Ideally appointed, cosy, comfortable, exceptionally clean accommodation. We did not want to leave and we all want to return again next year. Thank you!
We have just spent 3 nights in the Old Paul Pry. It is a wonderful Grade II Listed cottage right in the centre of Holt. The cottage is very tastefully furnished with 3 lovely bathrooms and a separate downstairs toilet. Although the cottage sleeps 8, the lounge is quite small so I would say that it would be more suitable for 6. The stairs are extremely steep too so it isn't suitable for the less mobile. My husband is 6'4" which was a bit of an issue with some of the low doorways and the beds (nothing he isn't used to!) You also have use of the Folly Tea Rooms garden which would be nice in the warmer months. I would definitely recommend staying here - in fact we are going back for another short break in April.
