About Us

Make Holt 

Skillfully curated work by quality makers from Norfolk and nearby.

Our home is 'The Shirehall', a Georgian, Grade II listed, former courthouse in the centre of the market town of Holt. We have peeled back the layers on the inside of the building to create a unique and welcoming space, with a tactile mixture of soft red brick, flint, stone, and ancient wood contrasted with clean, contemporary display areas.

An inspiring place for makers to sell their work to you, the discerning customer who appreciates the highest quality handmade goods for your home. We are passionate about celebrating the skills of our makers, selected for their diverse creative skills. All the work we sell comes from within a 100 mile radius of our front door, mostly from Norfolk.

At Make Holt we offer them a unique opportunity to connect with customers through our retail space, offering them the chance to tell the story of their work in store and online.

Lovingly restored by local craftsmen, these three self-catering apartments, with their own private entrance, offer a tactile mixture of soft red brick, flint, stone, and ancient wood contrasted with modern features.

Interior design is by Aviva Leigh, owner of Make Holt, using carefully selected pieces from local makers. Many of these items will also be available to purchase from Make Holt during your stay.
