The amazing indoor swimming pool within one of the converted barns looks out onto open fields and is a delightful pool for all the family. We swam in the pool everyday, sometimes twice a day, most days having the pool to ourselves.
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 have just returned from a fabulous weeks cycling based at Cranmer Country Cottages in North Norfolk from which we cycled over 300 miles on the some of the best English lanes you could hope to find. As club cyclists who have enjoyed lots of Great Britain and Europe on a bike we think Norfolk is a real gem.
We had a lovely time at Cranmer. Customer service is amazing and we treasured the swimming pool and game rooms.
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.
We had a wonderful stay! Very comfortable and clean house, and fantastic play area right outside the back door. We really enjoyed the private use of the excellent swimming pool. The games room was also very welcome on rainy days.
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!
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
Thank you very much, we had a great time. We loved the cottage and the pool. When do you have vacancies in Sept 2021 please?
