The Luxury Holiday Cottages at Cranmer in North Norfolk have been designed for large group accommodation with comfort and relaxation in mind.
Extended family groups can book communicating cottages Owl and Wagtail (sleep 8 & 1 travel cot), Swallow and Woodpecker (sleep 10 plus 2 travel cots) or Avocet & Garden House (Sleep 12 plus 2 travel cots) with room for grandparents in Coot Cottage next door. Communicating cottages afford big dining areas for the family to cook, sit and eat together and bedrooms within easy listening reach of sleeping babies. We provide high chairs and travel cots and can provide a baby bath for the wet room style bathrooms. The swimming pool is just a quick nip across the courtyard from Swallow, Tern, Wagtail and Owl.
The Eco Barn maybe booked together with Coot (sleeping 3) suitable as a bolthole for grandparents, throughout the year – sleeping a maximum of 12 + 3.
During peak season (school holidays except Christmas & New Year) we do not book out the cottages to large groups unless the whole site is booked to the large party. Group bookings are limited to the communicating properties only sleeping 8, 10 & 12 (+ 3 if Coot Cottage is booked with the Eco barn).
Out of peak periods we are happy to accept larger bookings (2 pairs of communicating cottages) for weekend breaks and midweek breaks.
Our holiday cottages can be booked together for extended family groups for seasonal get- togethers, or individually for families of 2,4,5 6 or 8 members. We charge per property booked with a minimum 2/3 night stay and for 7 nights only during peak season.

The living areas in our large group cottages are spacious and well equipped. Warm, bright colours are mixed with neutral painted brick work and the original roof beams are accentuated with innovative lighting. Garden House cottage has a kitchen designed for catering with gas/electric range cooker and American-style fridge freezer. Furnishings are family friendly, combining contemporary styling with practical comfort. Large glazed doors to the rear garden terraces let in plenty of natural daylight and provide wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. An excellent place to sit and watch the sun go down under our big Norfolk skies.
The group holiday cottages are all on one level with no dangerous stairs; spacious open plan living areas mean that little ones are within view even when preparing meals. Styling is contemporary, simple and practical; from sofas with removable covers to the collection of cheerful art gallery posters on the walls.
Outside the group holiday cottages there is a large, safe fenced play paddock visible from all cottages (except Coot). The 2 acre grassed area includes outdoor activity equipment and a timber playhouse with plenty of space for running about, flying kites and kicking balls – a great place for making new friends. The cottages each have private terraces for family barbeques. Woodpecker & Avocet have their own fenced garden with a view over the paddock. Garden House has a private walled courtyard leading from the living/kitchen area and is ideal for al fresco dining.
For a true taste of country living both Swallow and Owl Cottages have oil fired Rayburn cookers in addition to their auto ignite gas cookers. Although all of the cottages have independent efficient central heating systems, Wagtail and Swallow Cottages have additional wood burning stoves for cosy winter short breaks or chillsome early spring weekends. Heating in the new cottages is underfloor and is supplied via a ground source heat pump powered by the wind turbine and solar energy.
Fridge freezers, microwaves and dishwashers are available in all 8 cottages along with a dvd player (a selection of DVDs can be found in the games room, books games, music systems and a comprehensive information folder in case guests run out of ideas for things to do.
Bicycles and pushchairs can be stored in the lockable bike store close to the cottages. End cottage has its own lockable bicycle shed.
