‘We have been advertising in The Spectator for many years, and the number of enquiries – and bookings – which derive year after year from our ads is highly satisfactory. We do very little advertising in any other magazine or newspaper, and given our success with The Spectator, I feel that we really don’t need to do so!’

NELSON HOUSE, HOLT, NORTH NORFOLK. Grade II listed property of significant historical interest, in the centre of the beautiful Georgian market town, Holt. 1,500 sq ft of accommodation arranged over 3 floors, it was used until recently by a Chartered Surveyor and Auctioneer. Planning permission has been granted for conversion into a 3 bedroom townhouse, as it had been previously. Named after Admiral Nelson, whose uncle owned it – Nelson reputedly stayed there as a boy during his journeys around Norfolk. The property may require some modernisation but much of its charm lies in its original layout and features. It has been many years since the property was last on the market and it’s anticipated there will be considerable interest, in acquiring such an iconic and well known building in Norfolk.
