You cannot fail to be impressed by Cranmer Hall Barn, located just south of South Creake, one of two properties let by the same owner, the other being Cranmer Hall Barn Orangery (1742 ) next door. Built in the early 1800's you enter via the double height barn doors and walk directly into a huge living space, which features a fantastic floor to ceiling Swedish wood burning stove, just what’s required on cooler days to keep cosy and warm. Luxury living abounds with a hand-made ‘Bryan Turner’ kitchen, bespoke marble bathrooms and some beautiful antique furniture mixed with contemporary touches that creates a truly unique space. The courtyard garden is a good spot for morning breakfast or an evening supper on warmer days and the quiet, rural location of the barn offers the perfect spot to unwind and relax after days out exploring this delightful corner of north Norfolk.

Cranmer is a small hamlet of a few buildings nestled in the north Norfolk countryside and ideal for exploring both the Royal Norfolk coast, west Norfolk and the glorious coastline to the north, much of which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is lovely walking and cycling country and the flat landscape readily lends itself to its exploration. Situated not far from the Georgian town of Burnham Market, spend some time here investigating the boutique shopping, galleries, café’s, pubs and restaurants that are collected around the village green and then drive on towards the coast and fabulous sandy beaches of Thornham and Brancaster to the west and Holkham and Wells-next-the-Sea to the east. Seek out sailing, seal trips and fish & chips whilst you are here, as well as the RSPB reserves at Snettisham and Titchwell. Historic houses in the area abound and many happy hours can be spent discovering the Royal Estate at Sandringham, Holkham Hall with its deer park or Houghton Hall with fabulous grounds and for soldiers’ young and old alike, visit the largest private collection of model soldiers in the world at the Soldier Museum here. Norfolk is well known as a foodie county and the area does not disappoint – there is a regular farmers market at Creake Abbey, just up the road, on the first Saturday of each month and a great deli and restaurant here year round. The White Horse at Brancaster is on the coast and you can on occasion see the famous local mussels landed here and the Duck Inn at Stanhoe has just received the Good Food Guide Award for 2017 as Local Restaurant of the Year for east England – book early!
