Property Description

The Property

Daisy Cottage is a charming two bedroom semi-detached period cottage, boasting both a great sized garden and private parking.  The cottage is tucked away from the hustle bustle of Holt, yet only a short stroll from the town centre shops and cafes.  Inside the cottage offers cosy but generously proportioned accommodation including a sitting room, kitchen, dining conservatory, two double bedrooms and a lovely family bathroom.  Outside is a charming garden which wraps around the cottage and even incorporates an outbuilding and a private parking space.

Currently the cottage is a super successful holiday let but would equally lend itself to being a permanent home or your private second home in North Norfolk.

Daisy Cottage is accessed through the conservatory which is currently a bright and airy dining space.  The kitchen is just to the right of the entrance to the main cottage has a window out to the rear garden and has been recently upgraded with new cupboard doors and integrated dishwasher, washing machine and under counter fridge. 

The sitting room is well proportioned and has dual aspect windows and an electric wood burning effect fire.

The traditional cottage staircase leads up from the sitting room to a small landing.  Off this are the two double bedrooms, one to the front and one to the rear of the cottage.  Both are good sized and currently arranged as a double and twin room.  

The family bathroom is particularly well appointed with free-standing claw foot bath, separate shower enclosure, WC and wash hand basin.


Daisy Cottage boasts two of the most sought after things with any central Holt cottage - both a good sized garden and private parking.

The parking space is within the double gates to the property, so particularly private and there is scope to create additional parking if desired.

The garden is principally to the rear of the cottage but does wrap around the property.  It is a charming garden with an outbuilding and lawn and mature hedging making a lovely private space to enjoy the warm sunny days of the summer.
