• How to Plan Your Group Get-Together

As we live on site, we are around most of the time to host and manage our group bookings. We do have some stipulations for large cottage group bookings as we are predominantly a family-friendly holiday accommodation provider, it is also our home and we want everyone to have an enjoyable relaxing time, whilst staying. 

Our holiday accommodation is divided into 2 main areas with shared courtyards at the front and private gardens at the back of the properties.  The pool is located between the 2 areas at the centre of the site. Group bookings are strictly limited to one of these two areas off the pool to help ensure everyone enjoys their stay with us. Click Here for site plan.

Area 1: Owls Roost, Tern & Swallows Nest sleeps: 8 – 22

Area 2: Swallows Nest, the Eco Barn & Coot sleeps: 10 – 24

During peak season (school holidays except Christmas & New Year) we do not book cottages for very large groups ie: over 6 properties or over 24 guests, unless the whole site is booked by special arrangement. Group bookings are limited to the communicating and adjacent properties only – sleeping groups of 8, 10, 12, 15 or 16 see chart below.

Out of peak periods when there is more room to spread out, we are happy to accept larger bookings for weekend 3 – 4 night short-breaks and midweek breaks.

  • We wanted somewhere with excellent facilities within reasonable driving/cycling distance of North Norfolk Coast for a party of 10 with age ranges from 75 down to 4. Cranmer delivered on this very well with the swimming pool, games room, tennis courts and playing field and plenty of light/space indoors for cooking, eating, sleeping and relaxing and opportunities for the three small groups within the family to join or remain separate as circumstances required.

  • 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.

  • We enjoyed a multi generational holiday in Swallow cottage during August 2021. The property was very clean and stylishly furnished. The information received prior to our holiday was extensive and helpful in making plans and helped us feel as though the holiday had started a few days early.

  • 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.

  • Very good arrangements for a family group holiday. Excellent that the swimming pool,was kept in operation with a very well organized schedule.

  • 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.

  • 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.
