Nørholm is a manor and agricultural property (1,850 decare) in Grimstadmarker, Norwaymarker, that was bought by Knut Hamsun, the Nobel Prize winning author, in 1918, and has since been owned by the Hamsun family. It is currently owned by Victoria Hamsun, the granddaughter of the author. The Nobel Prize made it possible for Knut Hamsun to expand the property significantly, and to live a life as farmer, much like the protagonist of his novel Growth of the Soil which earned him the Nobel Prize in Literature.

The manor historically belonged to noble (often Danishmarker) families, and its name is partially influenced by Danish.

The current main building is from 1830, but was expanded by Hamsun in a neoclassical style. He also built several roads on the property.

The property is managed by Victoria Hamsun in cooperation with the Nørholm Foundation (Stiftelsen Nørholm).
