Since 1650, a place to meet friends and family, celebrate in style and stay for a break

A warm welcome to Holt and The Feathers Hotel which takes pride of place in the town centre.

Holt is an elegant Georgian town, situated only 3 miles from the glorious North Norfolk coast and is renowned for its charming shops, antiques and art galleries.

Holt’s location also makes it an ideal base for exploring the spectacular coastline and the nearby heathland is a haven for birdwatching.

Felbrigg Hall, the Blickling Estate, Holkham Hall and the Sandringham Estate are all within a short distance and we are only 21 miles from the fine city of Norwich.


A brief history

The Feathers Hotel has been an important part of Holt since it was established on the site of the old cattle market in 1650.

During the 19th century the ‘Regulator’ coach used to depart from the Hotel three times a week for the fourteen hour journey to London.

Around that time, the first Landlord, Mr Cubitt Cooke, was visited by an author named Peter Bull. So impressed was he that he wrote a poem (which hangs in the Bar) which ended:

“In fact it’s a place to which your heart tethers, so good luck to the Host of the jolly old Feathers”

Indeed we are proud of hosting the good people of Norfolk and weary travellers for nearly 150 years and we look forward to welcoming you to The Feathers Hotel, Holt.

The Feathers under the first Landlord, Mr Cubitt Cooke
