Discover Holt

Holt is a historic Georgian town with an upmarket feel.  There are lots of boutique shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants on your doorstep and a short drive to some of the best beaches in North Norfolk.  

A bustling little market town, boasting some beautiful properties and the famous Gresham's School with its own Theatre, frequent markets with fresh produce, hand made goods and local art - Holt really is the perfect base.

Holt is at it's most beautiful at Christmas, when the whole town is covered in fairy lights, and the window displays are very special.  A visit to nearby Thursford for the Christmas Spectacular should also be high on your list for a festive visit.

There are a couple of places that have to be visited whilst in Holt; Byfords and Bakers and Larners food hall.


To many, Byfords marks the very centre of Holt.  A beautiful place to eat at any time of day, transforming from cosy breakfast/coffee spot during the day to cosy, romantic dinner spot in the evening.

If you're in a rush, the take away (you can now click and collect!!) and deli is perfect for packing up for a picnic or a no fuss dinner at home.
