As featured in The Telegraph in November 2018 in an article titled 'Self-Build. It can be fun to make a little go a long way'.
With its outer shades of white and light blue that evoke its nearby coastal setting, and with an interior blend of traditional and chic, the Old Print Shop captures perfectly the Norfolk coastal style. The town of Holt itself is renowned for its art and antique galleries, and for its Georgian charm, but even so, the Old Print Shop stands out for its freshness. This luxury self-catering property may be just the right size for a romantic getaway, but its magic lies in its deceptive spaciousness on the inside.
A gem amongst gems
Set just off the town’s High Street, the Old Print Shop immediately features a small shingled courtyard, where guests can share a glass of wine and watch the world go by. Inside, the sitting room combines with the dining room. There are two button-back Chesterfield sofas and a wood burner to set an even tenderer mood.
Separately, an angled kitchen gives the property just the right dose of quirkiness to make it feel like home. Cooking at home will be a pleasure anyhow, thanks to Holt and its food shops which offer the best of local produce. For those little treats, you might want to sneak in every now and then, however, after a day spent visiting the local art and antique galleries, and window shopping in the fashion boutiques, Holt’s charming pubs and restaurants are sure to leave you feeling even more like a welcome local.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
In true style, the Old Print Shop features a state-of-the-art walk-in wet room on the first floor. On the other side of the landing, and with an oval bath in the corner of the room, the king-size master suite will really make couples understand that the property was designed with them in mind. Further decorated with a feature wall, white-scrubbed floorboards, and Velux window, where better to reconnect as reality gently soaks away?
A starter pack of fuel for the wood burner is provided.

Lovely cottage, very clean and had everything we needed - we chose it for the decor and location.Emma Vincent - 10th June 2019
The Old Print Shop is a very lovely place to stay. Natasha and Joe have thought of everything - and more - to make this place special. And we were very appreciative of their flexibility when our travel plans changed slightly. Having not spent much time in North Norfolk previously, we absolutely fell in love with it.Holt is a charming town, and ideally placed to visit the wonderful villages, beaches and nature reserves nearby. We particularly enjoyed visiting Sheringham on the steam train - a real treat. The wide open beach at Holkham is delightful, and we spent a few hours twitching at Cley Marshes. The icing on the cake was the glorious weather we were lucky enough to have this Easter. A fantastic break :-) Mrs Marie Holding - 29th April 2019
This is a great little cottage, beautifully appointed with lots of little extras that show the owners have thought carefully about their guests. Only one request - a hook on the back of the bathroom door to hang dressing gowns on while showering.Jane Thornton - 14th March 2019
This is such a lovely property. The owners have put a lot of care and attention into designing this cottage and it is of an excellent standard. It is in a great location, a few minutes walk from the delightful shops of Holt and only about 10 minutes drive to Cley beach. A fabulous base.Mrs Amanda Williams - 17th January 2019
A first class property.Mr Oliver Barnes - 23rd October 2018

The owners really have thought of everything to make this a luxurious but welcoming cottage. Couldn’t ask for more.Mrs Liz Young - 1st October 2018
Just wanted to say thank you for the little gift you left in our welcome hamper for baby Young last week. It was so sweet and such a lovely touch and am sure bump when it arrives next month will love it. The welcome hamper sort of set the tone for the rest of our stay in your beautiful little cottage - you really have thought of everything and we felt so welcome there. Your cottage is also absolutely stunning and beautifully styled and it felt very luxurious - the perfect place for our babymoon! We thoroughly enjoyed exploring north Norfolk and will definitely be back. Thank you once again.Liz & Andrew - 29th September 2018
