One of Norfolk's finest market towns
A strong sense of community thrives among the proud residents and local businesses of Holt, and many of the latter champion the local ‘Love Holt’ initiative which waves the flag for the independent shops that add vibrancy to the Georgian town centre. Throughout the year, there are plenty of local events including a summer Holt Festival and 1940s Weekend, which takes over the town and ‘Poppy Line’ heritage railway that runs between here and Sheringham.
With a traditional butcher, fishmonger and greengrocer, the town even has its own department store and food hall, Bakers and Larners, a local landmark which has been run by the same family since 1770.
The town and its surrounding yards house a collection of chic boutiques and luxe lifestyle stores to explore and fill your home and wardrobe with beautiful things – linger and choose your favourite locally made fragrance at Norfolk Natural Living.
Life moves at a leisurely pace in Holt, and there are plenty of places to idle over a coffee or bite to eat. Believed to be the oldest house in town, Byfords deli and café is a central landmark and fabulous place to stop and watch the world go by. There’s no need to hurry home – relax and enjoy country life! On the edge of town is the eponymous Gresham’s school.
While there is an abundance of Georgian property, particularly in the streets surrounding the town centre, venture a little further and you will find leafy roads with stylish, detached 1930s family homes, plus well-designed contemporary houses that blend seamlessly with their country setting. And, should you need to spread your wings a little wider, head to the heathland of Holt Country Park or Spout Hills and reconnect with nature.
If you are looking for the perfect spot to enjoy country life, Holt is one of Norfolk’s finest market towns with easy reach to the coast and city and if this sounds like your kind of place, let us help you to find your next property.
