Our Covid-19 Promise for all new bookings. 

A beautifully presented period cottage situated in the picturesque village of Holme-next-the-Sea and within a few minutes walk of the beautiful North Norfolk Heritage Coast. The cottage has been modernised and renovated making it a real gem in this sought-after village.

Scalp Cottage (just in case you are wondering, a scalp is a beach sand formation!) is a single-storey chalet situated just minutes from the beach and saltmarsh at Holme-next-the-Sea. Hidden away off the private road leading to Holme Dunes Nature Reserve.
Scalp Cottage is one of three similar properties at the end of an un-made driveway. It has three bedrooms, two with double beds and one single (with trundle bed beneath), a family bathroom, sitting room with dining area and separate kitchen. This means the cottage can offer very flexible accommodation for both couples and families. Should you require the 'sleeping six' option, please request on booking.

The property welcomes dogs and the garden to the rear is completely enclosed and secure, so both children and dogs can play safely. This is a perfect spot for bird watching and relaxing in the peace and quiet.

Additional Information
Two well behaved dogs are welcome (small additional charge).
