We’ve had a nice review from Enjoy Norfolk, read it here


Cranmer Cottages have just received another award and this excellent review from the Green Business scheme :

“Cranmer Cottages a GOLD award winner for the GTBS has just posted figures which demonstrate a 10% saving in fuel use for the site. This is an absolute saving and doesn’t take into account increased occupancy and an expansion in the number of cottages. The site has wind turbines and heat pumps and this helps to demonstrate the significant benefits from adopting new proven technologies. It also demonstrates that even our GOLD award businesses can continue to make savings and reduce their carbon footprints. With good data collection all sites should demonstrate significant savings by adopting the green tourism business scheme. Saving 10% in 2010 is part of a UK campaign called 10:10 and we are pleased our businesses are able to demonstrate this in practice.”

Luxury Indoor Swimming Pool at Cranmer Country Cottages

We’ve been busy updating our website – we hope you are finding it easier to use hopefully the online availability and booking function is more user friendly!

Building works are progressing – we should have 3 newly refurbished barns open by August. The swimming pool is already benefitting from the recently installed solar panels. The new cottages should be virtually carbon neutral – watch this space for information on our green energy project.
