Food & Drink
Take the hassle out of arriving somewhere new with a hungry family to feed by pre-ordering all you need for dinner, breakfast, barbeque or even a picnic hamper. We work with a number of excellent local suppliers who use the best of Norfolk ingredients and who can deliver food orders to our door ready for your arrival or for you to pick up during your stay.
Alternatively if you have booked your self catering holiday with us for the freedom and space it offers but have no intention of cooking take a look at our local Norfolk catering suppliers list.

Cranmer Country Cottages have teamed up with Chef Keith McDowell of Manor Cottage Catering to help cater for your stay with us. Whether it is for a celebratory party, a private dinner or just because you’re on holiday and well, why should you cook? Keith has over twenty years in the industry and has been working in Norfolk for the past five. His time in Norfolk has helped him to build an extensive knowledge of what is available locally from the land, sea and air.
Catering for a crowd
with Susi's Home Cooked Meals at Norfolk Luxury Cottages
If you are a family group of 6 or more and would like someone else to come in and do the cooking during your stay then our chef Susi comes highly recommended by former guests. Susi offers simple home cooked food and generous portions using fresh locally sourced ingredients. Susi's home cooking catering services will deliver your food ready for reheating at a time which suits you. Alternatively for an extra charge Susi will cook and serve your meal with all of the trimmings in your cottage and clear up afterwards! (This works well when communicating properties Avocet & Garden House are booked together)
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. Myra Quick - October 2013
Susi can also offer a freezer stocking menu - just email her to discuss your requirements.
