  • The Eco Barn was a lovely place to stay we were pleasantly surprised the Garden House and Avocet were actually connected not just 2 buildings next to each other which was great for our stay. Plenty to keep the children entertained and over all very comfy place to stay. Only a short drive from wells next the sea for a day trip out too. Highly recommend for somewhere to stay in Norfolk.

  • Came across this hidden gem by accident and would like to keep it our secret ! However so pleased they are doing well. A lot of care and detail has gone into the renovation of these barns including a fab swimming pool and an essential games room for kids.

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

  • Just wanted to let you know we’ve left this morning – thanks for such a lovely stay it was fab.

  • Thank you very much. It was our second stay with you guys and was very enjoyable. Couldn’t have asked for more. looking forward to staying with you guys again in the future.

  • I can’t think of another five-star self-catering accommodation in the UK that is as green as Cranmer

  • There is so much more on offer. Quiet lanes linking pretty villages with duck ponds and great pubs, watch out for the wild life on the way, brown hares and barn owls don’t seem very shy as they go about their business.

  • 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.
