About Jayne Ransom
We are Jayne and Rob Ransom and we have been coming to the North Norfolk coast all our married life and Jayne pretty well all her life. We bought Broadwater Cottage as our holiday home over 15 years ago and both we and our family have spent many holidays enjoying the wonderful Norfolk Coast.
Jayne Ransom purchased this Cottage in 1996
Why Jayne Ransom chose Holme-next-the-Sea
When we were looking to buy, we explored the coastal villages and Holme ticked all our boxes: Quiet but accessible, retaining its own character and a short walk to the beach with a good family-friendly village pub. The cottage has allowed us to enjoy the traditional seaside holiday with the kids on the beach when they were younger and now that they are grown up long dog walks both inland and on the coast. We love the area because of its variety, soft rolling hills, spectacular beaches and wild dunes. In days gone by we would sail from Brancaster Staithe but now we potter in our little boat out to Scolt Head, hoping to see the seals.
What makes this Cottage unique
The south facing garden is wonderful for a summer barbecue and our summerhouse and conservatory offers the feeling of being outdoors on less favourable days. The woodburner makes winter cosy and is something we enjoy when we return from a stroll across the marsh to the dunes or a visit to the hides on the village reserves. Nearby Hunstanton offers all the features of a traditional holiday resort whilst it is a short drive to an excellent selection of pubs and restaurants should we fancy a change from the White Horse. We keep the cottage as a home from home and so things like shrimping nets, crab hook, kiddie paddling pool, a couple of bikes, sunloungers, and the odd bucket and spade are all available.

We are sadly just about to leave this lovely holiday home, great location, a real home from home.
Four adults, our 3 month old little granddaughter and our dog, just perfect!
Five Star Property
An amazing village location close to the coast .The house itself is superbly equipped and extremely homely.the garden was wonderfully secure for the dog and had sun all day long.Lots of space and outdoor seating .
Great location - but in need of some tlc
Very attractive property in good location, all the rooms were clean and tidy - but it looked unloved. Double glazing is blown in several places, bathroom fittings don't always work, chairs in the conservatory are unstable, sitting room furniture needs more cushions for comfort. A “Welcome Pack” of perhaps tea/coffee/bread/(butter) milk would have been nice, as is provided as a gesture in most rental holiday properties, particularly for those who have travelled long distances. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our stay.
We enjoyed the local pub food at the White Horse, the lovely parish field for walking the dog and the Chinese take-away in Hunstanton - other pubs (eg. The Orange Tree) we thought overpriced for the quality. The beaches all around are beautiful - Brancaster beach is much more accessible than Holme beach (which is a very long walk even from the car park). Burnham Market, Heacham Lavender farm and Holkham Hall were lovely places to visit. Wells, not so great.
Lovely cottage in perfect location, ideal for family.
This is a lovely cottage in an excellent location and is perfect for families, couples or groups. It is well equipped and homely and has a lovely garden which catches the sun most of the day. The beautiful Holme beach is an easy walk away and it is a short drive to many others. The White Horse pub is directly over the road and has a nice garden with play area for kids. It serves good value unpretentious pub food. This part of the coast line is a haven for nature lovers with beaches that go on for miles and numerous bird watching opportunities. Our 5 year old is now an avid bird watcher!! We cant recommend the cottage and location enough.
Fabulous cottage in perfect location. Lovely local walks, good food at pub across the road and will serve as a take away if you take your own plates.
Great cottage, clean, plenty of space,gardens are great and secure for the dogs.
Location perfect for us with 2 dogs. Close to the beach and the White Horse pub and restaurant
Will go again.

Holme is approximately 2 hours drive from Stansted airport. King's Lynn railway station is a 30 minute bus journey away. The Coast Hopper bus service runs from King's Lynn all year round and serves all coastal villages from Hunstanton to Cromer along the main road. The Holme bus stop is 5 minutes walk from the cottage.

There are two bird reserves in the village with the Holme Dunes area of Special Scientific Interest accessible across the nearby Redwell Marsh. Holme Dunes are well known for birdwatching and famous as the location of Seahenge, a prehistoric wooden henge that was exposed on the beach some years ago, subsequently removed for scientific study and relocated the Lynn museum.
The whole of the coast has undergone a transformation over the past few years with an exceptional selection of places to eat and drink, from traditional pubs to top-end restaurants. We provide a guide to eating and drinking and other attractions in the cottage.
All the usual facilities, shops, supermarkets, banks are available in Hunstanton with more limited facilities at Burnham Deepdale and Burnham Market. The latter is a pretty Georgian market town inland from the coast with a number of speciality shops and is well worth a visit.
