We stayed here over the New Year - the team were excellent at communicating when we could check in, and providing lots of information around the manuals, pool timetable and check in. The accommodation was beautiful, very homely, comfortable, all the amenities you need. The onsite facilities of a games room, swimming pool and large (secure) field out the back were brilliant for the kids to play on (as well as the play equipment). The swimming pool was huge, clean, and it is a novelty to have it to yourselves. The location is brilliant too, only 10-15 mins from Wells and Holkham. We were sad to ...more
I don’t have anything but positive feedback. The cottages were welcoming and all bedroom a good size.
We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Cranmer Cottages. We stayed for 4 nights in Wagtail cottage and certainly wished we had booked for longer. The cottage was immaculate and the on site facilities including the swimming pool, games room and the vast outdoor space were an added bonus. The surrounding area was beautiful and we managed to see so much of Norfolk in such a short space of time. The owners were extremely helpful and ensured we had everything we needed. I couldn’t recommend the place highly enough and will treasure my cranmer cottage jute bag that was gifted full of local provisi...more
We had a great time during our stay in Coot cottage. The cottage living area was cosy but beautifully presented and the welcome goodies were lovely. There were other lovely touches like being given pumpkins to carve and Halloween sweets for the kids. The on-site facilities are great - the swimming pool is lovely, we played tennis and table tennis, the kids played on the swings and climbing frame and with the toys in the games room, it was all lots of fun! We found the location to be great as well, there are so many things to do locally and some stunning coast and seals to enjoy. We didn...more
I booked both Woodpecker & Swallow for a much delayed family celebration. Please refer to my comments on my review of Woodpecker, which apply equally to Swallow.
Cottage lovely, conviently located, pool lovely but a bit shallow.. Max depth 1.2m... Excellent table tennis table... And great for plane spotting US special forces particularly visible...
This was our third holiday running at Cranmer & it was just as good as ever. The weather wasn’t brilliant but we had the super pool. Such a good idea having a rota. The only little criticism I have is the pillows are hard. Two soft ones per double bed would be so good. Thank you to all of you.
For our family group, with ages varying from 9 to 82, the 2 cottages we rented (Woodpecker and Avocet) worked very well. There was plenty of space for the younger members to run around outside, play tennis and table tennis while 'at home' as well as swim. The main room was spacious and comfortable and the kitchen area well-equipped. However, I have never been in a smaller double en suite which, while providing all that was necessary, meant that i and my husband could not move around the room at the same time! The location of the cottages was very peaceful and in reasonable reach of most pl...more
Ideal environment for family holiday. Very safe for children who had lots of space to play in. Lots to do locally.
An attractively designed barn conversion style holiday cottage in a convenient location for the coast. Some equipment had seen better days and the bathroom extractor wasn't working. Master bedroom was dusty/ fluffy as noticed when cleaning on leaving. Outside patio and garden relaxing and the children's field equipment was enjoyed,as were the tennis courts and pool. The games room was a little cramped and needed a good clean.
We throughly enjoyed the cottage and facilities. We didn’t need for anything as it was all provided.
Very enjoyable 6 night break in a converted Victorian farm in a rural setting but within easy travel of the large range of attractions and activities Norfolk has to offer. Garden House is the only new build on the property and is well appointed and easily accommodated 4 adults and two small children. The facilities are excellent, including washing machine, dishwasher, fridge freezer, large barbecue and outdoor seating area. Plenty of safe space for children to play. On site is a delightful swimming pool although use was inevitably restricted by Covid rules. Very helpful staff also on site. Loc...more
