Hollyhedge Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
This charming detached cottage dates from the 17th Century and is set in the quiet village of Briston, just four miles from Holt. Offering cosy, comfortable and well-appointed accommodation, this property boasts a sitting room with low ceiling, exposed beams and open fireplace, as well as three bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen and a ground floor bathroom. The established garden at to the rear of the cottage is ideal for relaxing, and offers two sitting areas in addition to a summer house. There are numerous amenities close by and the surrounding area is packed with fun activities for the whole family.

Situated in North Norfolk and with an excellent local store, village post office, good bakery and superb butcher's shop is the village of Briston. This vibrant little town is also home to two pubs, a playing field and a large village green and is located in a wonderfully central position making it a good base from which to explore the surrounding area. With the historic Georgian market town of Holt close by offering tempting tea-rooms and enjoyable shops, and Blakeney coastal nature reserve with its fantastic bird spotting opportunities just a 15 minute drive away, this wonderful village is within easy reach of all the region's main attractions. Visitors can also enjoy seal spotting boat trips around the coast, a day exploring some of the many historic towns in the area or a day at the seaside resort of Sheringham, making this a fun and varied spot for a holiday.

Picturesque rolling Fens, unspoilt beaches, and pretty waterways – East Anglia is a dream holiday destination. Norfolk offers beaches, saltmarshes and quaint villages whilst equally as charming are the coast and countryside of Suffolk.

Hollyhedge Cottage provided us with the perfect country escape. A beautifully maintained cottage with everything we needed and more. The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in and the open fire created a lovely relaxed atmosphere to spend time as a family. We will definitely be returning!

A beautiful cottage in a lovely village. The open fire, oak beams and higgledy-piggledy layout are just great and what you expect to get from a little English cottage. Reminded me of the cottage from the film 'The Holiday'

The cottage was in a central position for Thursford, Sherringham and Cromer. The garden was fully-enclosed if you have a dog and the wooden beams, the rope to pull you up the steep curved stairs and the large wood burner all added to the feel and comfort of the cottage.

We loved the cottage. It was a home-from-home and we felt very comfortable there. It was also a little bit quirky, which suits us.The beaches we visited were fantastic.

A good central location for touring north Norfolk. A very good range of local facilities within the village itself. A truly enclosed/escape proof garden for our Border Terrier. A very cosy cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and our first visit to Norfolk.

The cottage was cute, cosy, comfortable and clean! The kitchen was very well equipped, the standard of the tolls was excellent. The facilities within the village were excellent, everyone was very friendly. We enjoyed the use of the garden and summerhouse, the plants were well tended. Great cottage - great time!

It was the most beautiful place with everything you could want; we especially liked the log fire. Near to everything from shops to the sea. Holt was amazing and only 15mins away. Can't wait to go back again!

Very cosy cottage. We had great weather, but can see it would also be a wonderful place to stay in the winter.

Loved the character of the cottage. Wooden beams and inglenook fireplace. It was ideal to spend New Years Eve there with friends. The furniture was very comfortable. Good location for taking the dog for walks and a Pub nearby for refreshments after all that exercise.

We stayed a week here in June, an absolutely wonderful cottage everything you need. The garden made it for me, and Briston was a lovely village too, we will come again.
April 2015
A really great English cottage - almost out of an American film. The original cottage is one room downstairs and two up, with kitchen, bathroom and downstairs cabin sized bedroom attached as extensions at some stage. Excellently equipped. The really good things: downstairs bedroom by bathroom for elderly relative who couldn't do stairs; great sun trap garden and summer house; awesome fireplace;really good central North Norfolk location; good Pub 43 paces down the road. The quirky things: Parking off road a challenge for a big car like ours, ancient staircase a challenge for the unsteady, especially after the pub;second bedroom is found via first bedroom The irritating things: electric storage heaters ( I hate them); only one load of logs so had to buy more;no wifi and no O2 signal (other mobile signals ok ish) Dog loved lying in front of fire after a great run on the beach every day.. Try the village store/butcher/baker ....awesome

Furnishings and appliances were of an exceptionally high standard. Key collection was very straight forward. It was a warm and cosy cottage which surpassed our expectations

The cottage was excellent and without doubt one of the best we have stayed in. We particularly liked the summerhouse but the accommodation, overall, was superb. Everything possible was provided and there is nothing, whatsoever, that we could complain about. The location is also first class for exploring the north Norfolk coast. Wells, Holkham (Hall and Bay), Blakeney, Holt, Sheringham and Cromer are all in easy reach.

If you are looking for a real character cottage this is for you.From the wooden beams in the living room to the enormous fireplace it really was an absolute treat to stay here this week.Enclosed well maintained garden,fantastic if you have pets.There wasnt anything more we could have asked for .Hollyhedge cottage is well located for you to discover the beauty that lies within Norfolk. Wroxham Broads def worth a visit and Sheringham Park. Definitely give the Hunnybell restaurant a visit (5 mins) by car.Great atmosphere,location and desserts were to die for! :) Only 1 thing I would say is if anyone has trouble climbing stairs then the single room on ground floor is more suited.Other than that we didn't want to leave!
