A visit to Holkham will exceed all expectations. We are a place of rich and diverse landscapes. Think parkland alive with deer and mighty oaks, a walled garden bursting with blooms and heritage, a nature reserve thrumming with wildlife, farmland abundant in wildflowers and hedgerows, and an expansive beach backed by sand dunes and pine forests.

We are a place of people – from farmers to historians, gardeners to housekeepers, conservationists to the friendly faces that greet you throughout your stay. And Holkham is a place with a rich history and an iconic stately home, yet a place with a pioneering heart and progressive vision. We hope you decide to visit us and become part of our story.
