Staying at Holly Lodge

Tucked behind a fruit orchard, Holly Lodge largely dates from the early 18th Century with parts of the buildings going back to the 13th Century. Guest are accommodated in the converted stable block, following apparently something of a tradition... it is said that the stables were once regularly used as a stopover for pilgrims making their way to the shrines at Little Walsingham.

Original features have been uncovered and retained such as flagstone floors, beams and an inglenook fireplace. These are complimented by dramatic decor and furniture intended to make a stay at Holly Lodge an extra special treat.

But we'd hate for the design and decor to get in the way. We try to keep Holly Lodge relaxed and unstuffy, combining its style with all the facilities and thoughtful touches we can to ensure a trouble-free, enjoyable visit. Our guest conservatory has comfy chairs, newspapers, local maps and free wireless internet connection so that you can plan your day, catch up with the world or check in with the office while you're away.
