I had booked Swallow’s Nest for my whole family of five adults and four children aged from 12 - 7. We were delighted with the spacious accommodation as we were able to choose which living area to relax in. The children enjoyed the outdoor play space and the pool. Kitchens are generally well equipped although some extra serving dishes would have been useful. The cottages were warm, I imagine very cosy in colder months. However we were all too hot during most nights, the duvets are quite thick for summer nights. The owners have clearly considered the importance of managing the requirements o...more
Came across this hidden gem by accident and would like to keep it our secret ! However so pleased they are doing well. A lot of care and detail has gone into the renovation of these barns including a fab swimming pool and an essential games room for kids. Wonderful hospitality from Zoe on arrival - nothing was too much trouble for her. She’s a complete asset to the barns. We hired two cottages to sleep our 18 th birthday party guests and the barns more than lived up to our expectations. Would use again and highly recommend you to try it out for yourselves. Thank you to all concerned.
We had a great time at Cranmer for a weeks family escape. The facilities were great for kids and the cottage was extremely comfortable with plenty of room for all of us.
A comfortable well furnished Cottage that enabled us to be close to family staying in a larger cottage but allowing us safety management of Covid 19 risks. A very enjoyable stay. The addition of a filter on the cold water supply would be useful in removing sediment which is not good in your tea !!
It was our fourth stay at Cranmer Cottages. We had another fantastic stay. The cottage had been painted and a few new soft furnishings had been added which made us feel that the cottages are well cared for. We are always telling our friends to go to Cranmer and would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of going.
We stayed in Owl this time after staying in other cottages previously. It was the usual lovely feel with all the amenities we needed, and an aga! Spacious and tidy with the HUGE garden to play in was great for your kids. Extra access to the pool was great as was the games room (remember to bring 50p coins haha). Of course things are different during the current covid context but Lynne, John and Nikki still made it feel like a holiday with smart ways to keep safe while still enjoying our time there. It was another lovely break and we shall be back again soon.
We had a lovely time, the cottage was well equipped, cosy and comfortable. The hosts were very helpful with anything we needed.
We really enjoyed our stay in Avocet and it provided a perfect setting for our 3 year old grandson, with plenty of safe space to run around, including swings and a slide. However, the only drawbacks were the lack of personnel on hand to greet us when we arrived at the appropriate time, bearing in mind the lack of signal for mobile phone use. Cranmer Cottages are very well appointed and quite luxurious and visitors would definitely expect and benefit from some shower gels and shampoos provided, as in other similarly upmarket cottages. We really enjoyed our stay there and found the staff to be...more
We have stayed at Cranmer every year for 10 years and have stayed in most of the cottages. Lynne and John are superb hosts and the cottages are well designed and thoughtfully equipped. Due to Covid a few things had to be different from usual but they went above and beyond to ensure everyone got a safe holiday and a turn in the pool! Woodpecker is a smaller cottage but well equipped and comfortable with a handy extra bedroom. The water pressure and temperature was excellent so important after a rainy day at the beach. We ate in this year far more than usual and found the kitchen and appliance...more
Ideal environment for family holiday. Very safe for children who had lots of space to play in. Lots to do locally.
I visited Cranmer with my wife, daughter, parents and 2 dogs. The accommodation is excellent and location is also great. There were a few issues with the pool during our stay which meant we couldn’t use the pool as much as we would have liked, but when we could it was fantastic.
Lovely, peaceful location and great property. Excellent service given the challenging circumstances with COVID-19. The pool was an added bonus and the timetable worked well allowing us to have the facility to ourselves.
