Our luxury cottage cluster offers flexible accommodation and space for the whole family to spread out, relax and enjoy the festive holidays together.

Cottages can be booked together to feel like a larger house – with private spaces to retreat to if all the excitement gets too much.

Our holiday cottages provide a comfortable and well-equipped home away from home stay. Whether you are planning a family Christmas cook-in, hiring a local catering service or wish to leave it all to a special local restaurant the choice is yours.

Several of our properties have wood burning stoves for extra cosiness, and all have individually controlled central heating & hot water systems.

Wake up in the peaceful north Norfolk countryside – We cannot promise snow but there’s plenty of safe outdoor space at the rear of our properties for children to play, once the excitement of unwrapping presents has ceased.

To add to all the festive “hygge” our heated indoor pool is open for a plunge or some serious lengths, and the tennis courts provide an opportunity to burn off some energy and create a sense of well-being as a positive start to the New year.

Our Cottages

Our cottages sleep from two to twelve and larger groups can be accommodated by special arrangement.  We have 3 pairs of communicating properties offering flexible accommodation – especially useful once little ones have gone to bed.

There is ample space in several of our larger open plan living and dining areas for everyone to gather and dine together.

Our Site

The converted former farm barns are all on one level. The properties are conveniently arranged around 3 courtyards, and fall into natural groups of 2-3 properties accommodating between 8 – 14 guests.

Our pet friendly End cottage sleeps up to 8 guests and is located within 2 minutes just off the main site.

There is ample off-road parking onsite in 2 car parking areas.

Cottages can be booked together for extended family groups for seasonal get- togethers, or individually for families of 2,4,5 6 or 8 members.

Our location - Christmas and New Year at Cranmer

Enjoy a traditional festive family walk at the coast to work up an appetite whilst the turkey cooks!  -

Our farm is located in North West Norfolk within easy reach of the pinewoods and vast sandy beaches of Holkham Bay and Wells-next-the-sea. We are just off the north Norfolk coastal road bordering the area recently dubbed as the Royal Norfolk Coast, with the Sandringham Estate and Houghton Hall a short drive away.

For the energetic members of your family take part in the famous North Norfolk Boxing Day Dip at Cromer Pier. http://nnbr.co.uk/events/boxing-day-dip/  The traditional sea dips are held every year to raise money for local charities and also include a Christmas Day dip at Hunstanton – just bring suitable gear and check the dates and times before you set off.

For shoppers and theatre goers Norwich is within an easy 1 hour drive. The villages and towns of Holt, Burnham Market and Wells-next-the-Sea offer an array of independent shops, art galleries, cafes and restaurants.

For a nostalgic Christmas experience with little ones there is Santa’s magical journey http://www.thursford.com/santas-magical-journey.aspx  for something a little more low key there are the “not to be missed” North Norfolk Railway Santa Specials http://www.nnrailway.co.uk/page.php?pid=6

If the weather is not too great there is plenty to keep family members amused onsite between the celebrations; our pool is open on Christmas morning and the games room is open all day for a game of table tennis or pool.  The tennis courts are also available during daylight hours. 

Need to know

Noise

We live onsite in the farmhouse we offer family friendly accommodation and we are not a party venue.  We ask all of our guests to consider their neighbours and us by keeping noise in their cottages & shared areas within reasonable levels and especially after 10.00pm in the evening.

Numbers

All guests must have an allocated bed within the advertised sleep numbers. All users of our pool and facilities must be staying onsite with us.

Larger groups ie: more than 14 guests are accommodated by special arrangement only, out of peak holiday season.
