A Rural Country Retreat in North Norfolk
Cranmer Country Cottages is a good central base for experiencing Norfolk’s wide open spaces with bracing walks, cycling on local quiet lanes, bird watching on the wild Norfolk marshes and sampling some of the best local Norfolk pubs and restaurants.
As well hitting the nearby beaches, don’t miss out on the many other beauty spots to be found in the local Norfolk countryside.
Cranmer Country Cottages lies on the border between North and West Norfolk and within easy reach of 280 sq miles of land designated an Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. More than 96% of Norfolk is rural and much of the countryside is set aside for agriculture, woodland, forestry or just left open. That is why there just seems to be so much space and it is easy to escape the crowds even in the height of summer.
We help sustain the wonderful natural Norfolk landscape via our commitment to save energy, preserve the environment and help fight climate change. Our recently converted 5 star ‘eco barns’ use energy only from carbon neutral sources.
On your bike
The Norfolk countryside is perfect for cycling although you may find that it’s not as flat as you first thought. We have a safe storage barn for bikes and a drying space for wet weather gear. We provide a selection of route maps. If you don’t want to bring your own bike, cycle hire is available locally.
Experience nature’s environmental gym. Discover Norfolk from a different perspective and unwind with therapeutic marsh, beach or pinewoods walks. We have the Holkham estate close by offering a number of walking routes to suit all ages and abilities. Walkers can explore the numerous nature reserves or SSIs mentioned.
Plenty to keep the children entertained and over all very comfy place to stay. Only a short drive from wells next the sea for a day trip out too. Highly recommend for somewhere to stay in Norfolk.
Another excellent stay at Cranmer that even Covid could not spoil!
We have just been here for three nights but so wish we were able to stay a week! Thank you so much and we wish you every success with this venture which is truly excellent
If you are looking for a luxury, family stay in North Norfolk, this is it. If you are looking for a luxury, ecologically aware family stay this is it too. A fabulous holiday with a green conscience, if you will......
I can't think of another five-star self-catering accommodation in the UK that is as green as Cranmer
A wonderful week with plenty of memories - and amazingly enough, no rain, even some sunshine. Completely sold on Norfolk and this place - have no doubts we will be back.
We booked Garden House, Avocet & Woodpecker for a surprise birthday party for my son. It was such a brilliant weekend and I would like to thank you for recommending Susi; she was marvellous and the food was perfect. Hope to return to Cranmer Cottages in the near future and would thoroughly recommend them to everyone.
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.
Probably the coldest week in the last 12 months; ice, snow and very cold! Nevertheless we had a good time. It was always lovely to return to the warm welcoming cottage. We experimented by cooking with the Rayburn - great fun and good results. Try it!
