Why stay here ...

 

This year (2018) marks the 18th year in which we have been running our CL site at 'Rose Cottage', which has simply evolved by listening to members welcoming ideas and suggestions, many of whom have been returning for the past decade and beyond! This of course makes for wonderful friends and familiar faces.

We have our own children (long since flown the nest), and we have enjoyed a lifetime of family pets (three wonderful dogs and our beloved cat 'Bella') but suffice to say, that apart from a very short foray in the early days, our site has been 'Adult Only' and we do not accept dogs.

Rose Cottage sits at the edge of Holt (a vibrant Georgian Town of independent shops and facilities) and is just a half mile walk from the High Street, the majority of which is by way of a footpath. The town has numerous tea rooms, antique shops, and a rather good Budgens, which is owned by Bakers & Larners department store, which in itself has a wonderful food hall.

Geographically, Holt is only 3 miles from the coast, and very well placed for exploring the beautiful and undulating North Norfolk countryside! It's National Trust properties and Bird Reserves at Cley and Titchwell.

Our lawned site of approximately 1.5 acres, is firm, well drained and in an elevated situation with distant undulating views of fields and woodland. It is situated a good distance from the road and is undisturbed by passing traffic. We have our own adjoining 2 acre paddock which is retained as short grassland and provides a habitat for our sometime resident ‘Barn Owl’. We often have sightings of Buzzards, Red Kite, Hares and Deer.

It is often commented upon that our pitches are extremely generous, which are individually sectioned by low growing pine trees for added privacy. The pitches are also situated in a line to one side of the site which affords uninterrupted views without looking onto your neighbour. We have six pitches in total (which allows for alternate resting) however we do keep the grass short and kindly ask that you do not use a groundsheet. Two of our pitches are partially sloping (blocks supplied) although members have always advised that they are perfectly acceptable.

Our chemical emptying point (which has been commended over the years for its ease of use) is discreetly situated along with the refuse and recycling bins.

We also have a T.I.P (tourist information point) which is a small shed containing local information and tourist leaflets.

Finally, we would just like to say a big thank you for all your encouraging comments and also for the website reviews! It is most rewarding and much appreciated!

We look forward to welcoming both new and regular members to Rose Cottage.

Richard & Vanessa

The Delightful Rose Cottage

We have just returned from our 6th visit to the delightful Rose Cottage. Large grass pitches separated by small trees and bushes, far reaching views, a superb information shed, 2 easily accessed drinking water taps, waste disposal point, and recycling dustbins. As the ground is predominately flint base, this makes for excellent drainage so this CL is ideal for motor homers and caravaners alike. The location is also ideal for motorhomers who do not want to move their vans, As a 15 minute stroll down the lane takes you into the small Georgian Town of Holt. Holt has a variety of high class shops, restaurants, wine bars and tea rooms (a Sunday roast in The Feathers pub is a must) it also has 2 Fish & Chip shops. There is also a half hourly bus service to the lovely seaside resorts of Sheringham and Cromer (change at Sheringham to catch the Coastliner bus) the bus continues its journey onto the City of Norwich, there is also an hourly bus to Fakenham, (a boon on race meeting days). Rose Cottage is owned by Richard and Vanessa. two of the nicest owners you will meet on the CL circuit. As the CL is adults only, and no dogs, it is peace and tranquility to perfection.

Immediately booked again

This was our first visit and what a delight! We chose this site as respite prior to a hectic 2+ weeks at Seacroft with our 2 Grandkids. It was absolutely ideal for us with spacious, private, peaceful pitches and great views. It's a short walk into the delightful town of Holt or 5 minute drive to Cley with free parking at the Village Hall. Richard was a most gracious host - he even fixed a broken lounger for us! We've immediately booked again for next year. A gem!

Peace and quiet on a lovely cl

Just returned from 10 days stay at Rose Cottage. What a quiet and peaceful site it was. Good information room. Friendly welcome from Richard. Very easy 15 min. walk into Holt with a good range of shops. Good half hourly bus service from Holt to Fakenham, Sheringham, Cromer and Norwich. Also connection in Sheringham for the Coast hopper buses from Kings Lynn to North Walsham. Plenty of wildlife in surrounding fields. Ideal for motorhomers. We will definitely be back.
