About our home
Beautiful Norfolk cottage in the village of Aylmerton, Hollybrook cottage has a 5-star Gold tourist board grading. We originally built this for a family member but due to a change in circumstances we now holiday let this cottage. If you would like to see more about it please go to Poppyland Holiday cottages web site.
The location is great for those who would like a quite spot but also be close to beaches and all the local attractions. The village has a good local pub serving good food, The National trust Felbrigg hall with its lovely gardens, woodland and lake side walks is at the end of our road (we walk through here every week, it is lovely). The towns of Cromer, Sheringham and Holt are all close by.
North Norfolk has lots of attractions to visit and is a very popular tourist area. We also live in the village and look after Hollybrook cottage ourselves so everything is always well maintained and clean ready for guests arrival.
We would rather swap with other second/holiday homes as we are not good at looking after pets etc. Hollybrook is a lovely cottage with a cottage garden and BBQ for the summer and a wood burning stove to relax in front of in the winter months.

The kitchen/diner is large, excellently equipped and attractively furnished in an almost new England style with hand-painted sage green woodwork, black granite worktops and pammented floor. Cooking is adequately catered for by the expansive modern range with its gargantuan oven space and full overhead extractor. A hefty American-style fridge freezer is also provided together with the convenience of a spacious dishwasher. Access to the pretty cottage garden to the rear, with its patio set & BBQ, is also through the kitchen.
Also leading off from the entrance hall is the downstairs shower room & toilet. Again, attractively decorated in the same style and colours as the kitchen this features a roomy shower cabinet & WC.
Upstairs boasts warm, all wool carpets throughout the three good sized bedrooms and the landing, together with cottage style sealed unit double-glazed windows. The smallest of the bedrooms has a comfortable, plump single bed and is decorated in a modern but homely fashion whilst the Master bedroom is attractively fitted out with a King-size bed, double wardrobe and chrome light fittings.
The third bedroom is a spacious and welcoming twin (where the two single beds can be pushed together to form a cosy double) with an elegant mix of a Victorian fireplace with Edwardian style wardrobe, dresser and bedside tables. The owners have also thoughtfully provided a comfy armchair in case guests feel the need to just sit and enjoy the peace for a little while. The window of this room affords a view straight down the village’s sleepy main street.
Finally the large upstairs modern bathroom again mirrors the maritime New England style with hand painted light sage green woodwork and is flooded with light thanks to the two skylights. As well as an upstairs WC the room has both a beautiful standalone bath and an exceptionally large shower enclosure – giving lucky guests the perfect choice between a long, luxurious soak or the invigorating warm spray of the power shower!
