THE TRIUMPHAL ARCH, HOLKHAM

De­signed by the great Palladian ar­chi­tect Wil­liam Kent, of Holkham Hall and Rayn­ham Hall fame, this re­ally is an ex­tra­or­di­nary-look­ing and rather ro­man­tic place to stay. The 18th cen­tury arch has ac­com­mo­dated mem­bers of the Coke fam­ily, farm work­ers and shep­herds over the years be­fore be­ing lav­ishly con­verted into a unique hol­i­day home. The top of the arch is the heart of the build­ing, with the bed­room and sit­ting area giv­ing fan­tas­tic views across the es­tate, but you’ll need to be ag­ile enough to ne­go­ti­ate a stone spi­ral stair­case to get to it. You can also bring the dogs along! www.bare­footre­treats.co.uk 01485 512245
