The recently converted barn will seat up to 18 guests for a sit down meal or up to 30 for a buffet style event and can be hired as an additional self-catering facility – please ask for details when you book your accommodation. The open studio space includes a dramatic low energy lighting system and under floor heating alongside a quality AV setup for showing films and delivering presentations. There is an independent galley kitchen as a base for caterers to use and two WCs, including one that is wheelchair user accessible. The Norfolk Country Venue is ground floor level and fully accessible. It has data projectors and a large screen TV for presentations. Set in the quiet Norfolk countryside surrounded by rolling farmland  close to the beautiful North Norfolk coast and cultural and retail hub of Norwich, The Norfolk Country Venue is ideally located for both business and leisure.

  • 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 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 have just returned from a great weekends stay at Cranmer Cottages. Garden House was brilliant, very spacious with high quality decor, and very clean. The large garden area to the rear of the cottages is great for kids to play, and the pool was lovely. We will definitely be booking again.

  • 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.
