About your hosts

Hello & welcome. We moved from London to north Norfolk nearly 25 years ago.  We were already sailing at beautiful Burnham Overy Staithe on the North Norfolk Coast and John’s connections with the area went back over several generations.  We loved the area so much as weekenders that we decided to escape city life and move here permanently. We have been welcoming guests to holiday cottages in this special corner of north Norfolk since 2000. Over the years we have developed the former dairy farm barns into a thriving & sustainable family friendly accommodation business. It makes everything worthwhile to hear the distant laughter of children at play in the gardens on a summers evening as parents relax and little ones make new friends. No wonder many of our guests return again and again.

We look forward to welcoming you to Cranmer!

What We Love About Norfolk….

Big skies, unspoilt coast and open countryside, cycling & walking. We have a shared passion for boating and swimming in the sea; Norfolk really comes alive for us from April once the sailing season begins.  Swimming through the creeks at Burnham Overy Staithe with the tide is great for the soul and sense of wellbeing. We also love to explore the wide-open sandy beaches, tidal creeks and sultry marshland walks in the winter months. We were not birdwatchers before we settled here but with all of our hedgerow and tree planting, we are continuing to notice a myriad of new visitors to the fields and gardens.

Located in rural Farmland in working countryside

At home Farm Cranmer we offer the opportunity for a luxury farm stay in an unspoilt tranquil rural location close to North Norfolk’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
