Excellent cottage, clean and tidy in very good location Ian from Hereford (05 August 2017)
Lovely well equipped property. Very close to town & handy for north norfolk coast. Off road parking plus a nice little garden to sit out in. Only negative points were the shower wasn't great and the suite wasn't overly comfortable but that is just a matter of opinion. Overall the 3 of us plus chester the dog loved it & will return if we holiday in the area again. Mrs Newiss from York (29 July 2017)
Small, well equipped & clean. Good location. Friendly owners next door but total privacy Bernard from Glossop (15 July 2017)
Very welcoming owners and a comfortable cottage. Great location for north norfolk coast. Holt itself is a lovely little town. the cottage has a small garden which is a nice place to sit in good weather. June from London (27 May 2017)
Had everything we needed and the tea, coffee and biscuits supplied were very welcome. Rachel from Doncaster (27 December 2016)
Lovely clean, cosy cottage, owners very friendly, location couldn't be better. . holt is a lovely town, and plenty of places nearby to visit. Liz from Lancashire (15 October 2016)
Fantastic cottage with everything you could wish for. Private garden to sit in. The cottage is on a main road but bid not notice the noise after the 1st night. 5 min quick walk to town centre. Karen from Bicester (27 August 2016)
The cottage itself was pretty much what we expected. The back garden was beautiful and very secure. The front driveway is fully open onto a very busy road and therefor a bit scary getting dogs out of the boot without them running off. The driveway is also quite difficult to drive out of with a big car and if the owners car is in the way you have to back out onto a busy road but as a driver you are blind so I had to stand in the road and direct my husband out. The only other problem we had was being told after we got there that we couldn't leave the dogs in the cottage at all, so going shopping meant you had to leave them with somebody in the car with them and in hot weather even with doors and windows open it was still very hot. It also meant we couldn't go for a relaxing pub meal without them. Don't get me wrong I love my dogs but it is also nice to have a bit of a break too. We have stayed in cottages before and never been told we can't leave them in the cottage at all so it was a bit of a shock. These rules should be spelt out before you book. Sandra from Warrington (13 August 2016)
Nice place to stay,convenient for walking into holt and secure garden for people with dogs comfortable and cosy with friendly owners next door but not intrusive Confirmed Guest (23 July 2016)
Warm and cosy. Great location, 10 mins walk to centre of holt. Very dog friendly town and home. Enclosed garden, asked not to leave dog in house alone. We would love to stay there again. Louise from Norwich (04 June 2016)
Wonderful welcome from the owners, great holiday, great value definitely would visit again. Hazel from Boston (14 May 2016)
A lovly cottage,owners very friendly. The road its situated on is very busy Albert from Lowestoft (23 April 2016)
It was an ideal location for a few days and what we wanted to do. Jane from Canterbury (11 April 2016)
We had a lovely month in this cosy little cottage. the cottage is very well equipped including comfy beds and has a nice little garden overlooking open fields. the cottage is just a 5-8 minute walk from centre of holt where there are some very good restaurants and coffee shops. john and cynthia are very friendly and helpful and are on hand next door to answer any questions you may have. we can thoroughly recommend overland cottage. John from Marlow (29 February 2016)
Great location Confirmed Guest (07 November 2015)
Lovely cottage. we have stayed there before so looked forward to our return. close enough to holt to walk to. just right size for two of us and the dog. the bedroom is small, but the new bed is lovely and comfortable and easy to get out of, which shows that the owners care and listen to customers. main bedroom is in the back so is very quiet at night as the cottage is on a fairly busy road (though this goes quiet mid evening). really warm and comfortable and great to come home to after a long day walking the fabulous coast. we visited in october - loved it. could even sit out to look at the stars because of the covered area. great location for north norfolk coast if you are a birder. Christine from Liverpool (31 October 2015)
The owners were friendly and very accommodating. The accommodation, kitchen area and equipment was excellent, especially because we eat in. Double bedroom really cosy, and quite. Front bedroom plenty of room for one adult. . unfortunately road at the front little too busy for me, o k outside rush hour. . would go back. Dean from Leics (24 October 2015)
We had a lovely stay at the cottage and the owner was very nice and nothing was to much trouble Joan from London (17 October 2015)
Ideally situated for north norfolk. . cottage located in ideal spot, close by the georgian town of holt ,with easy access . . to ,beaches ,parks etc. . . would highly recommend this cottage. Peter from Aylesbury (03 October 2015)
A very nice clean cottage good outside space and good parking. Dave from Coventry (05 September 2015)
Very comfortable, clean and welcoming, helpful hosts. Janet from Rutland (29 August 2015)
A great little cottage in a great location. The only thing is that the shower cubicle is rather small and the water is not very powerful, so hair washing takes a bit of time for those with long hair. Other than that I would recommend this cottage Confirmed Guest (22 August 2015)
Good welcome when we arrived. Owners were next door, so available and helpful but not at all intrusive. Lovely weather all week so a good location from which to make the most of travelling around the area. Kumud from Leeds (08 August 2015)
We had the most perfect time and will be back. Sarah from Burton On Trent (25 July 2015)
A very comfortable, well equipped cottage. The owners are very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The location is perfect for the facilities in holt and also for walking, bird watching etc on the north norfolk coast. June from London (06 June 2015)
Accommodation was nowhere near as spacious as appeared in photographs. Double bed against one wall in the narrow double bedroom which proved difficult in getting in and out for the person near the wall and only approx. 14inches of space on the other side; personally feel double bedroom is not be suitable for older people like ourselves. Very claustrophobic. Low-level windows in bedrooms without restrictors which could prove hazardous for small children. On main road to norwich and opposite police/fire station so getting on or off the driveway could be potentially hazardous at times. Joan from Northamptonshire (02 May 2015)
Parking difficult but good for us and dogs Bernard from Cyffylliog Ruthin N.Wales (07 March 2015)
The perfect place for a base for a trip to north norfolk. so many walks nearby and so much to see Jean from Bury St Edmunds (11 December 2014)
Although this cottage was quite comfortable I feel that the double bed which can only be. Accessed from one side and unfortunately has a kick board with raised bits on it makes it. Difficult for the not so nimble to get in and out of if the bathroom is required in the middle. Of the night, the bathroom had obviously been cleaned with the door open as there was a . pile of hair behind it and dirty splash marks on it. Andrea from Billericay (14 November 2014)
Excellent holiday retreat, very friendly owners. Great to be able to bring our two dogs with us with plenty of local walks and close to beach destinations. Roger from Lincolnshire (04 October 2014)
A real home from home feel to this lovely cottage. The owners were fantastic and very helpful. Fabulous location for walking into town and for getting about by car to local places of interest. Carole from Tibshelf (20 September 2014)
Great location both for holt and the north norfolk coast. Cottage good value for money and has lovely enclosed garden. Owners very friendly and helpful. June from London (07 June 2014)
The cottage is very nicely situated for the beautiful village of holt. It was very clean with lots if towels and extra laundry. There was a welcome pack and the owners are very welcoming and friendly. However the pictures are deceptive and the cottage and garden really are on the very small side - for us too small with 2 small children. This property is ideal for couples and dogs only really. Steven from Cambridge (12 April 2014)
This was our second visit to holt, although we stayed 5 miles out of town before. Overland cottage was first class, and very convenient for "bimbling" around holt itself. The location was very good for revisiting some of our favourite norfolk haunts. we would certainly stay at overland cottage with no hesitation whatsoever. Alice from Chester-Le-Street Co. Durham (08 March 2014)
Generally very good but we were disappointed with the power of the shower. the room with the double bed in did not leave enough room to get out of in the middle of the night. Garry from Bere Regis (25 January 2014)
If small is cosy...it was cosy. . David from Nottingham (19 October 2013)
Bedrooms were only single rooms. The double bed was against the wall making things tight to get in and out of bed. it was also not very comfortable. James from Newmarket (05 October 2013)
Although the place is small its well equiped for short break. no need to bring anything since its all provided. it would have been nicer if there was a larger screen tv in the lounge place a small tv upstairs able to play dvd's etc. all in all the accommodation is located within a short walk to the town centre Moore from Bexley, Kent (27 Jul 2013)
In walkable distance of holt and the country park. small private garden. Very friendly and helpful owners. Ideal location for the north norfolk coast and nt properties. Pauline from Mold (20 Jul 2013)
Great location, friendly owners, well enclosed garden for the dog or children Carol from Bransley (29 Jun 2013)
Close to holt centre and holt has very good range of shops. Julia from Sleaford (08 Jun 2013)
Very comfortable cottage, mr and mrs overland were very welcoming and helpful. Christine from Benfleet (25 May 2013)

All of the above! Peter from Stafford (10 November 2012)

Lovely & central. Although the owners lived in the adjoining property they were unobtrusive, but were there if needed. We have been holidaying with your company for at least 12 years & this was one of the best places we have stayed. Loved the welcoming tea/coffee!! Customer 68 (March 2006)
