Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How many people can stay at the same time?
A: There are four separate bedrooms each with a King-size bed, and 2 King size good quality sofa beds downstairs in the dining and sitting rooms, accommodating 12 people in total. Also available 2 single, high quality, Jay-Be J Beds, which can be put into any room. There is a travel cot for babies.

The house is very large, and we had parties of over 12 people staying on a number of occasions without problems.

On occasion our guests bring larger parties with them, who stay outside in the garden in tents. This is normally also ok with us, but please ask when booking.

As of July 2013, you can additionally book Lawns Spa Apartment, which can sleep additional 4 people. The apartment has a separate entrance and is completely independent from the main house, yet very close, so can be used by a single party.


Q: Can I bring a dog?
A: We welcome well behaved dogs, but please let us know at the time of booking that you are bringing one. Our dog charge is £25 on top of your booking fee, charged at the time of the booking.


Q: Is the house haunted?
A: No, but, if you are into that sort of thing, we can borrow a ghost from the neighbouring estate... (just kidding)


Q:  Do you provide firewood?
A: There are two working fireplaces downstairs: one in the sitting room and one in the dining room.  We do not provide fuel, and you are advised to buy your own wood/coal, which is easily obtainable from the supermarket in town. The fires best work with a mixture of coal and wood.


Q:  Where is the house?
A: The house is one of the biggest in central Holt, with almost 2 acre garden. Please see aerial picture here. Our guests often cite the location of the house as one of the top benefits of The Lawns, as one can feel like staying in the country, but leaving the doorstep you are immediately in town, which is the jewel of the North Norfolk coast.


Q:  What other attractions are there in the area?
A: Please see Activities for a short guide to what is available in Holt and the surrounding area. We have sampled most of what is there on offer in the area, so do ask us if you want some advice on local attractions.


Q:  Is linen provided?
A: Sheets made of Egyptian cotton are provided free of charge, as are towels and tea-towels.


Q:  Is there a highchair?
A: Yes, there is. There is also a travel cot .


Q:  Do you do mid-week bookings?
A: We will consider each request individually, however during the peak season mid-week bookings are unlikely to be accepted.


Q:  How many cars can we park?
A: There is enough space in the front of the house for 5-6 guest cars.


Q:  What is there in terms of cooking utensils?
A: There is good quality set suitable for cooking almost any dish. We are constantly adding to the collection, so if you tell us what is missing (within reason, of course), we will try to provide it as soon as possible.

There is enough china/cutlery in the house to cater for larger parties of up to 12 -15 people. Please ask us when booking.


Q:  Can you provide a catering service?
A: There are a number of top quality catering arrangements that can be made available on request. Please ask for further details when booking.
