A regal retreat worthy of grand group celebrations, charmingly located in a North Norfolk town where time stands still.

An imposing, Grade II listed, Regency-style haven in the Georgian town of Holt, The Castle is an idyllic setting for those with something special to celebrate.

Stylishly renovated, and with its parapet, mock turrets, and huge Gothic windows, The Castle makes a breathtaking visual statement. As you approach the gravelled driveway, you're sure to feel like the lord or lady of the manor.

As you step inside, you'll be greeted by a hallway that features a curved, sweeping staircase, with a floor-to-ceiling window that showcases the gardens. What an entrance!

Sleeping up to eight guests, there's plenty of space for everyone to relax in. The high-end Shaker-style kitchen and dining area is large enough for everybody to catch up in sociable comfort, with a long dining table that sleeps up to sixteen (ideal if you've got friends renting the neighbouring properties).

Meanwhile, the opulent lounge, with its open fireplace and feature windows, is the ideal room for everybody to retire to with coffee, after a hearty banquet. On summer evenings you could head for the large sun terrace instead, beautifully raised to overlook the green grounds.

There are four bedrooms to choose from; one twin room on the ground floor, and a second twin upstairs, along with two double rooms. And with three bath or shower rooms too, there will be no awkward morning queues.

Oh, and those aforementioned green grounds? There are two whole acres for you to enjoy, complete with a shared tennis court, and relaxing seating areas soothingly bordered by mature greenery.

If you prefer exploring the local area, the bustling Georgian town centre is within walking distance, filled with flint stone buildings, delightful hidden yards, and rows of independent shops and galleries to browse through.

Try the Holt Owl Trail if you're interested in Georgian architecture - specifically designed for you to wander through the town in a loop, learning all about the history of its buildings, monuments, and streets on your way.

You could also hop on the North Norfolk Steam Railway for a nostalgic journey through time, or head to the 100-acre Holt Country Park for an energising shot of nature.  

With the coast only a few miles away too, it's hard to imagine a more wondrous - or more stately - location for your special break than The Castle.
