Cartshed Cottages

Sharrington, Holt, Norfolk

Coastal design 

It's the English seaside - but not as we know it. These utterly sophisticated cottages for two and four, set in the grounds of a Jacobean manor house, offer designer exclusivity with a relaxing, coastal vibe. Tranquil, private and close to oyster shacks, boutiques and vast beaches, you won't want to go home. 


Situated in the tiny, tranquil hamlet of Sharrington on the north Norfolk coast, just a few miles away from bustling Burnham Market, otherwise known as 'Chelsea-on-sea', the four cottages are ideally located for sun, sea, sand and... shellfish! Half a mile from an award-winning deli, just three miles away from the pretty Georgian market town of Holt and 12 miles from the famous nature reserve and beach of Holkham  - you'll be perfectly placed to delve into all Norfolk has to offer.

Bring your swimmers because the beaches in this area are beautiful; for large expanses of sand, unspoiled and away from the crowds, try Holkham and also Brancaster. There are some lovely walks with great views along marshes or cliff tops, such as those at Weybourne and Overstrand. Wildlife lovers will appreciate a trip to Blakeney Point, a national nature reserve near the village of Blakeney, just five miles away from the property. Be sure to take a boat trip out to see the seals there.

With National Trust properties Holkham Hall, Blickling and Felbrigg Halls among others, or art galleries in Holt and Burnham Market, there's ample culture here. And the food? Oh, the food! The area is bursting with wonderful places to eat delicious local produce of the finest quality. From shellfish eateries and gourmet pubs to picking your own samphire and strawberries, you will want to eat and eat! The owners of the property, Steve and Katie  - who live at nearby Sharrington Hall - are more than happy to recommend places to try in the local area, or of course, you can stock up with goodies and cook in your cottage. To get to the property, it's an approx 125 mile drive from London. The nearest airport is Norwich and the nearest train station is Sheringham, which is on a line that stops at Norwich. 

About The Owners

Katie and Steve are ex Londoners with advertising and design backgrounds who fell in love with the area and then moved to save the dying wreck that was Sharrington Hall.

  • All cottages work extremely well for couples and they have special couple rates.
  • After a day walking, a cosy evening is guaranteed with logs supplied in the cottage for burning in the stove.  
  • Steve and Katie are extremely helpful and charming. They greet you on arrival and make sure that you are happy with everything. They're also full of local knowledge about sightseeing, gastro pubs, gardens to visit, etc.
  • The setting of the cottages and the simple but beautiful gardens are just gorgeous!
  • You can easily hire all cottages and organize a big get together.
  • The decoration of the cottages is beautiful; immaculate, stylish and homely with interesting touches like pebbles covering the walls of the walk-in showers and reindeer skins as rugs. And we really like Seal's roll top bath in the bedroom.
  • Other thoughtful touches include hot water bottles for those cooler nights and wine waiting on arrival. 

  • There are four cottages; the biggest is Shell Cottage with two en-suite double bedrooms. Sky Cottage is also a spacious two bed, two bathroom cottage, Samphire Cottage is a smaller two bed cottage and the Seal Cottage, a romantic getaway, sleeps two.
  • Each cottage has it's own personality and design, with highlights including some four poster beds, cast iron roll top baths, huge walk-in showers, hand-built kitchens and large inglenook fireplaces with log burning stoves (logs included).
  • The rustic chic interiors are a mix of vintage and contemporary furniture, with a subtle Farrow & Ball colour scheme and design touches such as shell mirrors or driftwood lanterns.
  • Newly renovated, the cottages have new plumbing, central heating, hand-built, fully equipped kitchens with large range cookers and luxury bathrooms.
  • All cottages offer Freeview TV, iPod/iPhone docks and WiFi.
  • Shared access to washing machine, ironing facilities and extra fridge/freezer space.
  • There's wine on arrival and Ren toiletries in the bathrooms.
  • No children under 10 are accepted - the cottages are better suited to romantic breaks, small groups of friends or families with older kids. Fido is welcome at Sky cottage only, at an extra charge.
