The local area guide to living in Holt

The attractive market town of Holt is handily located on the A148, right on the edge of the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This historic town was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, but most of medieval Holt was lost in the fire of 1708, which destroyed the majority of the town in a matter of hours.

However, the destruction led to Holt being rebuilt in the fine Georgian style that is still visible today, making this a charming and beautiful town to live and work in. The town has an excellent selection of small, artisan shops hidden away in picturesque yards and alleyways, and holds an impressive festival of music and the arts every summer.

Holt is surrounded by some stunning countryside, including Holt Country Park, Holt Lowes and Spout Hills, making it the perfect place to live for those who love outdoor pursuits and nature. The coast is within very easy reach, with the pleasant seaside towns of Wells-next-the Sea and Sheringham being short drives to the east and west respectively.

In the 2011 census, Holt had 3,810 residents compared to 3,550 in 2001.
