8. Comfortable and welcoming Burnham Cottage (from USD 138)

It may be a little tiny for others, but there’s a lot to like on Burnham Cottage. For three people, this is one of the better options out there due in part to its amenities. The whole place oozes with understated elegance, and there’s nothing to not like inside. At the end of the day, there is nothing more relaxing than falling into a refreshing slumber. Thankfully, the place has two bedrooms for the night. Conversations are livelier with people close to you, and there is no better place to hold discussions than in the living area or back patio. Your favorite dog is welcome, too, so you can really have a blast in Holkham.
