Group Bookings & Covid-19 (Current restrictions @ 16 August 2020)

Under the current Government Guidelines group bookings cannot be accepted for more than 2 households sharing adjacent accommodation or multiple properties on site, if it is intended that the group will socialise together in the properties or outside in the gardens.

If you book with us and then find that a member of your group comes from an area subject to Local lockdown you may have to cancel part of your booking. A family/group/bubble living at the same address in a local lockdown area can take up the booking for a single household only. A family/group in a single household/bubble must not socialise or mix with any other guests or staff onsite.  Access to the shared pool and communal play area will be closed to visitors from a lockdown area under these circumstances.

We must receive full address details for all guests staying onsite at the time of booking. We will not be able to confirm a booking without this information.

We will not allow access to our properties if the above guidelines are not adhered to.

It is critical that we, as a responsible business follow these guidelines to keep everyone safe.

We are accepting forward bookings which will be covered by Master Cancel if it becomes necessary for the group stay to be cancelled for any reason.

  • 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.
