The Holkham Estate is in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and home to Holkham Hall, which sits proudly at the centre of the Estate with far-reaching views over the 25,000-acres of historic parkland and woodland. One of the region’s finest and most recognisable Palladian country houses and the ancestral home of the Coke family for more than 400 years. The grounds are ideal for cycling and feature many themed walks and trails, with bike hire available close to the courtyard, restaurant and gift shop. You can even take to the water on the lake during the warmer months of the year. Just outside the walls of Holkham Park is Lady Anne’s Drive which leads down to the wide-sweeping sands and big skies of the dog friendly beach, bordered by pine woods. You will also find yourself spoilt for choice when looking to eat out. The Victoria Inn in the Holkham village serves fantastic local, seasonal cuisine from dawn to dusk, whilst lunch can also be enjoyed at the Hall’s Courtyard Cafe, The Lookout or the Beach Cafe slightly further afield in Wells-next-the-Sea. Wells-next-the-Sea is a charming coastal town with its iconic beach huts and picturesque harbour where you can enjoy fresh shellfish or the catch of the day. Other delights nearby are Burnham Market and its sister villages, Brancaster, Cley-next-the-Sea and the town of Holt to name just a few.

What a fantastic spot for exploring North Norfolk Coast. We loved staying in this beautiful lodge, it's so relaxing and surrounded by so much wildlife - we saw Roe Deer, Muntjac and loads of hares! It's deceptively so spacious for 2 people & the snug cinema was a nice surprise too! We also loved all the goodies in the Welcome Hamper. Some highlights for us have been: Hiring bikes and cycling around the estate, Walks from Holkham Beach! - 13th July 2020
Perfect - Thank you Jane and Kim - 19th March 2020
Birthday and Valentine treat! We were led here but an owl along the tree lined drive, who serenaded us every night. Survived storm Dennis, although it did get loud at times out there! Very relaxing weekend, very romantic setting, just beautiful. Thank youPaul and Sarah Dixon - 17th February 2020
Our third stay here! As fantastic and peaceful as ever! A paradise location! The Homburger Party - 27th January 2020
What a stay! Loved the peace and quiet, loved the fire, loved the hamper of goodies on arrival! A great weekend!! - 28th October 2019
We got married at Holkham Hall and then checked into Palmers Lodge for a few days of relaxation. We couldn't have picked a better place to start our married life - loved everything about it, from the comfy sofa and log burner to the board games and wildlife outside the window. Our dog was absolutely in his element too! Thank you for a wonderful stay that we will never forget.The K Party - 13th October 2019
Just to say that we loved staying at Palmers Lodge and were sorry to have to leave. Above all it was such a pleasure to be staying in an interesting property in such a wonderful setting - we have had a lot going on at home and staying there provided us with just the peace and tranquillity that we needed. Also, so importantly, the bed was really comfortable, the sofa was comfy with lots of lovely rugs and there was a good level of heating and sufficient hot water.Ms Bronwith - 23rd May 2019
