Grandeur abounds despite the petiteness of your base. A true folly, savour its delights, large and small. Cosy up inside. Step straight out for wondrous walks. This is you time exemplified.

Bijou bolthole

Rarely is a country estate complete without its folly. This one is all yours. Exquisitely apt, its tip-top renovation retains a focus on enjoyment and escape. All you need to curl up and be cosy, to snuggle up and sleep, to stretch your legs and take in the air. It’s all here. But let there be no work here. No effort shall be called for. When it’s time to dine, it’s time to be served - elsewhere, off site, most teasingly in the nearby Victoria Inn or Wells Beach Cafe. Make use of the toaster, kettle and fridge if you really must!

However long you choose to stay, or return for, your Grade II listed gatehouse is unlike any other. Gloriously grand high ceilings and decorative plasterwork encase a bijou studio apartment. All on one level on the ground floor you’ll discover an open plan layout centred around an achingly large fireplace. The wood burning stove is suitably nurtured by deep seated, comfortable armchairs. Their wool blankets just there should you need them. Let the fire roar through the coolest of evenings. Let the deep stone walls keep you cool in the hottest of summer nights.

A rather opulent king size bed sits stately waiting for you to plunge into its proudly plumped linens. Crisp white sheets at the ready. An en suite shower room kick starts your day or soothes you into a quiet evening in.

It may take you some 15 minutes to walk from your haven at Palmers Folly to the centre of the Estate and Holkham Hall, but bring pooch along to enjoy the setting. Another 15 minutes beyond will steer you through the Holkham village and on to the beach. This pet friendly cottage makes for a wonderful base for a revitalising Norfolk walking holiday (just please keep man’s best friends on leads through the Holkham Hall grounds). The Estate alone provides many exploring options incorporating woodland and access to the golden sands.

Bedroom and bathroom

Palmers Folly sleeps two in a studio style open plan space including a sumptuous king size bed. There’s an en suite shower room and separate loo.


We can only echo previous comments - a wonderful break and a privilege to stay on the Holkham Estate.

Previous Customer,

Unique accommodation fit for the setting! We were very grateful for the 'goody bag' which was both varied and of the best quality. The discounts available in local restaurants, beach cafes and shops were also much appreciated. Some improvements to make the stay exceptional? A sink in the main room and underfloor heating in the toilet!

The Stevenson Party,

Perfect! Lovely to get away from Brexit, wifi and feel yourself in a idyllic peaceful place - stay outside and real life is around you and step further and 4G appears so you can reconnect to the distant world. Enjoyed the park when everyone has left. Reconnected with my wife through the house and facilities - Perfect weekend!
