Things to see and do around 8 Carpenters Cottage, Holt: Visit Spout Hills/Spout Common Spout Hills, just yards off Georgian Holt's bustling High Street, is a special place of streams, ponds, marsh orchids and mint. Comprising of 14 acres of registered common land, maintained by Holt Town Council and an enthusiastic band of volunteers, the area consists of varying habitats and a spring which sprouts out of a gravel hill. ' HOLT Country Park is about a 10 minute walk from the cottage. Holt Country Park is situated on the edge of the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is a Green Flag award winner. When you walk in to the tranquil woodland, dominated with Scots pines and native broadleaves, it's easy to understand why. With the change in seasons come changes in the wonderful displays of flowers that you can find, from orchids in the summer to snowdrops in the winter. Holt Country Park is home to many varieties of butterflies who share their airspace with dragonflies and damselflies. The rich ground flora supports an abundant display of wildlife including goldcrests, greater spotted woodpeckers and deer. Lots of events and activities take place throughout the year at Holt Country Park Holt is an ideal location for Wildlife and Bird Watchers - Blakeney National Nature Reserve - 6 miles. Blakeney Point, within Blakeney National Nature Reserve, is a four-mile-long sand and shingle spit. Sand dunes have formed over hundreds of years on the shingle ridge and form a rare habitat valuable for unusual plants, insects, birds and seals. NWT Cley Marshes Nature Reserve The NWT Cley Marshes comprises 400 acres with reclaimed marshes, lagoons, pools, hides, board walks, walks along risen banks and the shingle beach at Cley, and a state of the art visitor centre with spectacular views over the marshes towards the sea. Arrive at the visitor centre and you'll be greeted by very friendly staff who will answer any questions you may have. If you want to visit the hides, you do need to pay, but if you want to just take a walk along the board walks, or up to the beach, then that's free. Don't forget your binoculars though, as you will definitely need binoculars for bird watching! It's worth going into the visitor centre just for the view across the marshes. It is stunning coastal landscape that you won't get anywhere else in the UK. Lovely at all times of year there is always something to do in Norfolk: How about .... Crabbing at Blakeney Eating Fresh Crabs at Cookies Crab Shop, Salthouse Birdwatching at Cley Marshes Breakfast at Byfords Cafe, Holt Steam train from Holt to Sheringham (Poppy Line) Making sand castles at Wells on Sea Fresh Fish and Chips at Alberts in Holt Walking on Spouts Hill, Holt Watching a seal bobbing along the shoreline at Cley Walking through Sheringham Park in May and admiring the Rhododendrons More
