Loke Cottage is a charming and spacious two bedroom period cottage, tucked away in the centre of Holt with parking and outside seating. This Grade II listed cottage forms part of the original workhouse buildings for Holt dating back to 1779 and is located within an easy stroll of everything the Georgian market town of Holt has to offer.
You enter the cottage into the sitting room, bathed in light from dual aspect windows and you are struck by the sense of space and the feeling of relaxed tranquility. There is a stripped wood floor and wood burning stove to cosy up around in the cooler months. Leading from here straight into the kitchen / diner, another well proportioned room with a lovely Chinese slate tiled floor, shaker style kitchen with oak worktops and appliances including washing machine and fridge / freezer. Nestled in the original fireplace is a gas range oven and there is space for a dining table & chairs.
The stairs lead off from the kitchen up to the hallway above with both bedrooms and family bathroom off. Both double bedrooms are a really good size and have windows out to the side of the property with plenty of space for a king size bed, bedside tables and bedroom furniture. The family bathroom features a bath with shower over, wash hand basin, loo and towel rail with a window out to the rear of the cottage. There is a useful double cupboard on the landing for storage.
Loke Cottage is approached via a shingled loke from the street, passed a row of pretty cottages that all formed the original workhouse.
There is a parking space next to the cottage with a small area to sit out in the sunshine with a bistro table and chairs.
There is a handy outside shed attached to the property.

Loke Cottage was launched to the holiday let market in 2020, so has had a slightly disrupted first two seasons. It has however been booked solidly thoughout the time that holiday guests have been able to visit North Norfolk. The cottage is currently marketed by English Country Cottages and the housekeeping is managed by a local cleaning company. The current owners are not taking further holiday bookings and the cottage can be available free of holiday guests from the end of August 2021.
Should you wish to carry on with holiday letting, the cottage could be available as a turn key (with all furniture and contents) by separate negotiation and ready to go.
