Guests staying in our holiday cottages have access to our private indoor swimming pool; perfect for a relaxing swim after a fun packed day, keeping fit whist on holiday or teaching toddlers to swim in a calm and peaceful environment.

The wide shallow steeps and hand rail provide easy access to the water for nervous swimmers and people who are less mobile.

Swimming with babies and toddlers
The luxury indoor heated pool at Cranmer is the perfect place to encourage babies and toddlers over 12 months into swimming. The water temperature is 29 degrees increasing to 30 degrees with solar gain. To prevent accidents in the pool we just ask that you use the neoprene happy nappy system that can be purchased from Amazon or Splashabout.

Please note that the pool is heated to 29 – 30 degrees maximum and is not heated to 32 degrees as an infant training pool dosed with chlorine might be. Babies and infants must wear neoprene swimming costumes and double nappies to prevent leakage. The pool is salt dosed which is not suitable for very young babies’ ingestion. The pool is designed for recreational swimming it is not a leisure pool – it is a great place for children to build their confidence and learn to swim. If you have concerns about the temperature please download this information from Rospa.

Please download and carefully read our Swimming Pool Safety Rules before you use the pool.  These terms form part of your booking terms for Cranmer Country cottages and were emailed to you as part of your booking confirmation. We will provide you with a key fob for entry to the pool. We will make a charge of £20.00 if the fob is lost.

  • The cottage was immaculate and the on site facilities including the swimming pool, games room and the vast outdoor space were an added bonus. The surrounding area was beautiful and we managed to see so much of Norfolk in such a short space of time. The owners were extremely helpful and ensured we had everything we needed.Barbara

  • Lovely pool with jet stream, great child’s activity room, fantastic tennis court and even a safe kids outdoor play area. Great home from home accommodation.

  • We had a wonderful stay! Very comfortable and clean house, and fantastic play area right outside the back door. We really enjoyed the private use of the excellent swimming pool. The games room was also very welcome on rainy days.

  • The facilities were fantastic; a large swimming pool, an expansive lawn to run around on and the owners had thought of everything a family might need whilst self catering on holiday.

  • The amazing indoor swimming pool within one of the converted barns looks out onto open fields and is a delightful pool for all the family. We swam in the pool everyday, sometimes twice a day, most days having the pool to ourselves.

  • We loved our stay here with our sons and friends. The accommodation worked perfectly for us all. The games room and pool were a fab addition and meant you had options on site rather than going out. We would book again in the future

  • Spotless, well appointed, great facilities. Our little boy loved the huge garden to play in. Highly recommended we’ll be back.

  • Lynne and John are superb hosts and the cottages are well designed and thoughtfully equipped. Due to Covid a few things had to be different from usual but they went above and beyond to ensure everyone got a safe holiday and a turn in the pool!

  • We had a lovely time at Cranmer. Customer service is amazing and we treasured the swimming pool and game rooms.

  • Thank you very much, we had a great time. We loved the cottage and the pool. When do you have vacancies in Sept 2021 please?

  • Swimming pool was fabulous , games room brilliant and were greeted on a very wet dark night with a very happy and smiling host. Truly recommend this farm to stay at , close to Wells next to sea , Holkham Hall and other coastal areas. We will definitely be returning.

  • We have just returned from a fabulous weeks cycling based at Cranmer Country Cottages in North Norfolk from which we cycled over 300 miles on the some of the best English lanes you could hope to find. As club cyclists who have enjoyed lots of Great Britain and Europe on a bike we think Norfolk is a real gem.

  • The two cottages were booked as a surprise for my 60th birthday, and what a surprise. I could not have hoped for a more fantastic celebration. We all enjoyed a brisk walk in Wells-next-the Sea, lunch in a local pub followed by a swim in the great pool here. The cottages are so well equipped, everything has been well thought out. I would recommend the cottages to any group wanting something special! Very relaxing time had by all.

  • We very much enjoyed our stay in the lovely warm surroundings of Woodpecker Cottage. Heated pool absolute bliss for early morning swims with the added bonus of splendid views of extensive countryside through those huge windows. Thanks for a wonderful stay, we will be back soon.

  • First Class Accommodation – highly recommended. We have stayed in 3 properties and would not hesitate in recommended them. We take our 2 small children (under 4) and often take my mother-in-law (for babysitting) and we particularly like in heated, indoor, salt water pool and huge fenced off play area which each property backs onto. Compared with other accommodation we have staying in, these are the best by a long shot.
