Cranmer Country Cottages


Cranmer Country Cottages is a small privately owned and managed luxury holiday complex featuring an indoor heated swimming pool and tennis courts. On our main site we offer a cluster of eight 4 & 5 star cottages sleeping from 2 - 6. The properties are homely yet stylishly converted barns with a neighbouring dog friendly cottage annexe. The family friendly cottages are set within 170 acres of sweeping farmland and gardens just a few minutes' drive from many of the best beaches and sophisticated market towns of the North Norfolk coast.

Along with fabulous eco-credentials, cosy wood burners and luxurious touches, our 1- 3 bedroom cottages also benefit from shared use of the striking salt dosed indoor heated pool, tennis courts, games room, a toddlers play house, useful baby gear and pre-bookable services such as babysitting, meal delivery and massage/beauty therapy. The special combination of superb location, luxurious onsite facilities and fabulous grounds offers family self catering holidays with an opportunity to truly relax and unwind.

Each property has been designed with equal emphasis on style, luxury, comfort and sustainability. From the west facing sun terraces, guests can watch both the stunning sunsets, observe wildlife and oversee their children at play.

The converted cottages combine modern architectural design with the best of the original heritage building features. High vaulted ceilings and beautifully lit timber trusses are complemented by stylish contemporary colour schemes, modern kitchens and stylish, yet practical furnishings. The accommodation is all on one level making it ideal for less mobile adults, wheelchair users and young families. Cranmer Country Cottages provide an ideal base for exploring the Norfolk countryside by bike as cycle routes extend from the doorstep. Nature reserves and a wealth of visitor attractions are all within easy reach.

Cycle storage available. Indoor heated salt dosed swimming pool open all year. 2 all weather tennis courts. Games room. Outdoor play area with wendy house.
