Pinewoods Holiday Park is proud to be part of the Holkham Estate. Owned by the Coke family, the spectacular Holkham Hall and its extensive grounds remain a traditional working country estate and a major part of the local community but have also become an attraction in their own right.
The hall and its gardens are open to the public and also include the café in the park and the gift shop. The grounds are a regular venue for special events from small children’s plays to the bi-annual Holkham Country Fair and large open-air concerts.
Along with Holkham beach, the hall and the estate also feature in many films and television programs, such as Shakespeare in Love, starring Gwyneth Paltrow and The Duchess, starring Keira Knightley and Ralph Fiennes.
The estate also runs the famous Victoria Inn in Holkham village, an extensive refurbishment involving local craftsmen and designers has been carried out and the Victoria re-opened in early May 2013 and has been transformed into an independent English inn offering great food, stylish accommodation and friendly service. The Adnams wine shop is in Holkham village close to other specialist stores.
Holkham employs many local people on the estate and in its associated businesses. There are also many tenants of the Holkham Estate that run successful businesses.
