“Home from Home”
Reviewed 12 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Dragonfly cottage is perfectly situated within walking distance of all the shops and eating places in Holt. Spotless and comfortable we really felt as though it was home from home.
We were four adults and had plenty of space for all our "tackle".
Holt is ideally situated for visiting all the north Norfolk coastal towns as well as Sandringham and has the added attraction of the North Norfolk Steam Railway for a trip to Sheringham.
The cottage has all the facilities you could wish for and we highly recommend it.

“Comfortable and cosy cottage”
Reviewed 17 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Just like previous reviewers, we enjoyed our time immensely at Dragonfly Cottage. Holt is a lovely market town and the cottage is very conveniently located within easy walking distance of shops, pubs and restaurants. The allocated parking space is very nearby too.
The welcome pack of homemade cake, bread and milk was delicious and very much appreciated on a cold winter's day. The cottage is very well equipped and the central heating system proved to be very effective- with the gas fire making the cottage even cosier. The beds and bed linen are first rate too.
I will definitely return if I am in the area again. Highly recommended.

“Idyllic and perfectly located Norfolk cottage”
Reviewed 17 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Perfectly located close to the centre of Holt, which is small but with a good choice of places to eat and drink as well as shops. The beautiful beaches of the North Norfolk coast are less than 20 minutes away as well lots of attractions and historic villages.
Dragonfly cottage itself is spotlessly clean and surprisingly spacious. We had a wonderful welcome with fresh bread as well as a cake, which we thought was a lovely touch.
Very comfortable and cosy and definitely recommendable. Great communications from the owner with all the info needed upfront as well as being genuinely dog-friendly.
Thanks so much, we will definitely visit again

“A beautifully positioned and decorated cottage to relax in.”

person found this review helpful

We were a family of two adults, a teenager and a labradoodle and there was plenty of room for us in this lovely cottage. It is immaculately decorated and clean and very well equipped. The are some quirky things to the cottage which add to its character. It is very well situated for the town which has lovely restaurants, a pub and cafes, all within walking distance. It is well stocked with local maps and walks which we made use of. We can also recommend the local GP's surgery which we unfortunately had to make use of but the information on where it was was included within the cottage information. All correspondence with the owner worked very well. And finally, a thank you for the tea, coffee, milk and homemade bread and cake on arrival - a lovely touch. If you are considering this cottage we would definitely recommend booking it!

“Gorgeous & immaculate cottage”
Reviewed 19 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015
1
person found this review helpful

This cottage is absolutely gorgeous and a real home away from home. It is so tastefully decorated and the owners have thought about absolutely everything you could want or need from a picnic hamper, books & DVD's and lots of extra blankets. The cottage was IMMACULATE and an absolute pleasure to stay in. The information provided by the owners was invaluable about the surrounding area and any communication and enquiry was dealt with speedily. I have loved my stay here and will seriously be retuning here in the future
