We spent four nights at Shire Cottage. Perfect from the moment we walked in. Stylish but comfortably furnished and very well equipped - I can't think of anything else we might have needed. Very comfy beds and good quality bedding, clean and a really great location right in the middle of town with parking. Thanks

The Bryans (Hertfordshire)
5 days in Holt

We found Shire Cottage to be a perfect place to stay for a few days break. It is spotlessly clean and furnished with high quality items (the multi-function oven kept my husband entertained for 30 minutes!) that made the break feel special - we felt at home straight away. Holt is delightful and friendly having everything on your doorstep made a perfect contrast to our normal village life. Definitely recommend.

Thank you for a fantastic stay in your beautiful cottage. It was perfectly well stocked and elegant throughout in a great and central location. We will be back.

Pros: Shire cottage is in a great location and on site parking is a real bonus. Well equipped kitchen with very comfortable beds and clear instructions - and many TVs. Good broadband. Clearly refurbished to a high specification some time ago. Cons: Now looking a little tired with dirty and scratched paint. The seating area outside now consists of dead plants in pots, rubbish bins, wheel barrow and other 'stuff'...a shame as a little effort would put this right. The lack of a standing shower makes life difficult but you are warned in advance. TVs only work on a couple of channels. Overall a little expensive for the current state but with a little work a good value for money cottage in a lovely town.

Perfect cottage in a perfect spot!

Lovely few days stay with our 2 girls - 3 and 18 months. Byfords was great for eating with the little ones. Very family friendly and we had great weather for flying a kite at Cromer and Holkham. Lovely few days made even better by the great accommodation!

Both the central location and the quality of the interior make this cottage an out-standing choice for a short break or holiday. We have just returned from a one week family holiday (we have two boys 12 & 9 years old) and loved the whole experience. The cottage is right opposite famous Bywords deli/restaurant, ideal for morning coffee's and fresh bread etc. Parking on its own drive make you the envy of others. The main double bed is very comfortable, as is the leather sofa in the lounge. The oven and hob took a while to work out, but the kitchen is superb with high quality utensils. Difficult not to get the wooden floor wet when taking a bath/ hand held shower, but its all part of its traditional charm. Holt itself is a delight with a wide range of independent quality shops from food to clothing. We would highly recommend this cottage.

Our second stay at Shire Cottage...

We love the central position, restaurants and shopping facilities, literally on the doorstep. Parking for car a real bonus. Cottage always very clean and welcoming, especially liked the Christmas additions. Great T.V. package and Cottage very well equipped with everything we needed for another most enjoyable stay. We combined our trip with a visit to The Thursford Christmas Spectacular, only a 15 minute car journey to get there, we thoroughly enjoyed the show, really magical and only 15 minutes back to Cottage. The family run Holt Fish Bar, just around the corner is excellent value for money. We have tried most of the restaurants/cafes in Holt and all are most satisfactory, can especially recommend Byfords.
