About this property

Curated from traditional Norfolk brick and flint, this exquisite hideaway is tucked away in a peaceful rural location overlooking incredible Holkham Estate farmland, and is a very short drive from the popular maritime town of Wells-next-the-Sea. With an air of tranquillity throughout, Holkham Skies has been beautifully designed to offer modern comforts in a quintessentially Norfolk setting.

Previously a farmworkers cottage, this stunning semi-detached property is perfect for guests seeking to experience the epitome of idyllic country living near to Norfolk's magnificent coastline. Boasting uninterrupted panoramic views across the Holkham Estate to the front and rear, Holkham Skies has been expertly styled with nature inspired décor featuring treasured curiosities. With an inviting sitting area providing a charming wood burning stove in front of a sumptuous sofa, guests can curl up with a good book after an exciting day spent exploring. Seating for up to five guests is available around a stylish dining table which offers views across the countryside. A high-end galley kitchen is equipped with all the essentials, ready for any keen chefs to make the most of the delicious local produce North Norfolk has to offer.

Upstairs, a spacious master bedroom hosts a comfortable super-king size bed and vintage rocking chair. Enjoy a quiet moment of relaxation on a morning and simply take in the beautiful landscape. A second smaller bedroom features a double lower bunk bed with single bunk bed above. Ascend the traditional Norfolk winder staircase to the book nook - a quaint snug reading room. Please be aware, head height in this small area is restricted. As is usual for Norfolk properties of this age, the bathroom is located on the ground floor. With contemporary tiling, the French-style tub bath features a luxurious rain shower over.

Outside there is an ample lawned garden. Being fully-enclosed, this is a safe space for supervised children and dogs to play. Circumvented by lavender, natural hedges and verdant landscape, the garden provides a spectacular backdrop for al fresco dining gathered around the outdoor table. Relax with a carafe of wine and soak up the colourful sunsets over the Holkham Estate. Relax for longer and gaze up at the uninterrupted stars of the night sky. Total tranquillity. A convenient outbuilding provides plenty of storage for paddleboards and bicycles. Parking for up to three cars is offered at the front of the cottage. With no passing traffic, except the occasional tractor, guests can revel in the sound of bird song.

Holkham Skies is well located with the Real Ale Shop, Walsingham Farm Shop, Holkham Hall, and Wells-next-the-Sea only a short drive, or cycle, away. Set in the pretty hamlet of Branthill, surrounded by farmland, this beautiful part of North Norfolk is brimming with countryside to explore, whilst being within easy reach of sandy beaches.

Holkham Skies is also available to book for two guests, with bedroom two closed off: Holkham Skies(2).

    The perfect place to get ready and relax after our wedding day. This bit of the country is so dear in our hearts, so it was lovely to stay in such a lovely little bit of it here in this cosy cottage. Thank you.

    What a truly beautiful cottage and surroundings. We've thoroughly enjoyed our four day stay. It is so tranquil with open farmland all around. We're so pleased we found it and hope to return.
