There is a single bedroom which has a 3ft single bed. Then we have a 3rd bedroom which is a double bedroom with king zip and link beds which leads into a en-suite bathroom with a shower, WC and hand basin.

Swallow communicates with Woodpecker (sleeps 5) between the hallways for extended family get-togethers or friends’ reunions. Together the two cottages can sleep 10 including children plus two travel cots.

The facilities were fantastic; a large swimming pool, an expansive lawn to run around on and the owners had thought of everything a family might need whilst self catering on holiday.
We loved our stay here with our sons and friends. The accommodation worked perfectly for us all. The games room and pool were a fab addition and meant you had options on site rather than going out. We would book again in the future
Very good arrangements for a family group holiday. Excellent that the swimming pool,was kept in operation with a very well organized schedule.
We stayed here over the New Year - The accommodation was beautiful, very homely, comfortable, all the amenities you need. The onsite facilities were brilliant for the kids. We were sad to leave, and will definitely be booking to come back.
Another great Christmas in Tern, Swallow and Woodpecker Cottages. All very welcoming, warm and comfortable - everything we could need. Our Christmas dinner cooked in the Rayburn. All fantastic yet again!
We enjoyed a multi generational holiday in Swallow cottage during August 2021. The property was very clean and stylishly furnished. The information received prior to our holiday was extensive and helpful in making plans and helped us feel as though the holiday had started a few days early.
We stayed in Swallow which forms part of a row of barn conversions looking out onto a large open field in the beautiful Norfolk countryside close to the North Norfolk Coast. Swallow a self-catering cottage with three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and open plan living all on one floor is spacious, with modern farm house features and very comfortable furniture.
Thanks for a fantastic holiday. We have all really enjoyed Norfolk, Swallow cottage and the facilities at Cranmer. You really have thought of everything a family may need on holiday which is wonderful (and very very impressive!!)
The two cottages were booked as a surprise for my 60th birthday, and what a surprise. I could not have hoped for a more fantastic celebration. We all enjoyed a brisk walk in Wells-next-the Sea, lunch in a local pub followed by a swim in the great pool here. The cottages are so well equipped, everything has been well thought out. I would recommend the cottages to any group wanting something special! Very relaxing time had by all.
