The Tack House
Holkham Estate, North Norfolk
Unique opportunity to stay on the beautiful Holkham estate on the North Norfolk coast in a 200-year-old stylishly refurbished Georgian farm manager’s house. Enjoy an idyllic setting, with amazing views.
Grade II listed, The Tack House is a very special Norfolk hideaway located just a ten-minute walk away from the South Gates, parkland and Long Avenue that sweeps down to glorious Holkham Hall.
Refurbished in 2018, a great deal of consideration has gone into ensuring this spacious period country house has retained an essence of grandeur and elegance. The addition of a stylish mix of contemporary and antique furniture along with an eclectic selection of artworks from the art dealer owner’s private collection enhance The Tack House’s individual character.
You will find it to be a rather smart, but casual, easy and unfussy house that is comfortable and well-equipped, with rooms that are airy and bright.
On the ground floor you’ll discover a generous-sized farmhouse kitchen with both oil and electric Aga option, a lovely sitting room with log burner and windows overlooking the garden and a cosy snug enjoying views across the fields – an ideal spot for curling up with a book.
On the first floor are three bedrooms (super king, king/twin and single), all with extra comfy beds and lovely linen, and two bathrooms. The magnificent private master suite runs the width of the house and has a separate seating area, dressing room and large adjoining bathroom.
Outside the enclosed and private courtyard garden has a covered seating area, a fire pit and a full-sized table tennis table to keep you entertained.
The Tack House is a very much a ‘grown-up’ property but well-behaved children and dogs are very welcome to stay.
