Myself and husband stayed with my two children there other halves and three grandchildren. We also had my mum and dad sister and brother inlaw. The house was plenty big enough for us all, the games room was a big hit, also the children aged 2 loved the dressing up box. The house was imaculate. We enjoyed walking around Cromer and loved the fish and chip supper from Mary Janes. We had a belated christmas dinner on Sunday with ample seating for everyone. Will certainly use it again.

“Superb Home for family gathering/celebrations”
Reviewed March 13, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

All the family - young & old - greeted their entrance into the house with oohs/aaahs/wows - great start! So warm. welcoming and cosy - in spite of being very roomy enough
to accommodate a large group - it felt so homely. Big kitchen/diner to seat 12 - superb lounge of 30 ft with big comfy sofas and chairs to seat all - woodburning stove all set and with logs to use - sadly we did not! Fun in the games room had by all as well - what a bonus - bedrooms were all very nicely decorated and really comfortable as well. Just loved this house. Very lovely gesture for our arrival for my husband's 70th - banners/cava/ballons/cake and a birthday card - super surprise for all of us. HIghly recommed this as a place to stay for a gathering - only downside - we had to leave after 3 days! Good local pub within short walking distance - lovely food and not expensive. Go stay you will love it!

Thank you for the lovely review. i am so glad you all had a good time and that, as seasoned travellers, the Granary met your expectations. I am pleased to hear the beds were comfortable as I think it so important to have a comfy bed and had replaced 2 mattresses before your stay and have replaced another 2 afterwards. The Foundary Arms will be delighted to hear their good reputation is spreading far and wide too. Thanks again Fiona
PS Glad to see you sorted out problem with your computer, it must be catching, mine has become a nightmare of late too!

“Amazing house for a break in Norfolk”
Reviewed January 7, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

I could not have asked for any more from this house, it is very spacious and comfortable and had all mod cons which made for a very pleasant stay. The location is perfect for peace and quiet, but still within walking distance of the wonderful seaside town Cromer. Highly recommended.

“An absolutely fab place to be!”
Reviewed January 6, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

12 of us stayed here over New Year and were delighted with the spaciousness and facilities.
We ranged from 3 to 73 and there was something for everyone. The games room was very popular with it's large snooker/pool table, darts board, selection of games and books and dressing up box (even I managed to wear some of it!). The rooms were delightfully furnished and bedrooms included real fluffy towels! A large kitchen diner with a good sized cooker meant that we could easily cook for and seat all 12 of us.
Northrepps is delightful and the pub was a 'must' for us most days, due to the staff being sooo friendly and the food very good. Beware of the giant sized portions!
It was very easy to walk via footpath to Overstrand and the Cliff Top Cafe.This was yet another downfall to my ever increasing weight! Will definately have this house in my 'must do again' notes

Thank you for your great comments about The Granary. I am so glad that you appreciated the fluffy towels, we do try make sure that we meet guests expectations of a 5 star property. In fact we have just replaced all the duvets with anti-allergy all season ones and new egyptian cotton white bed linen too and we continue to add to the dressing up box. The snooker cues are also periodically replaced, so if you didn't win last time, maybe you'll have better luck with the new ones, if we see you again, which we very much hope we do. Best Wishes Fiona

“Superb accomodation in a beautiful part of the country.”
Reviewed September 27, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We stayed in The Granary with 8 adults and 7 children, the barn was huge and big enough that we weren't tripping over each other. The kitchen with the large table was the hub of the house and a great place for everyone to sit together. The games room with the darts and pool table was a real hit and great for evening entertainment. The dressing up box and toys for the children were fab. Little touches like towels and tissues laid out on the beds was lovely, Superb accomodation within easy reach of some beautiful coastal towns. We'll definately go back again!

Belated thanks for your positive comments about The Granary and apologies for not responding earlier, I have only just realised that a response was possible. Thank you for taking the trouble to provide such a glowing review and for your comments about the 'little touches'. We are so lucky as we have a wonderful housekeeper who is a great believer in the little details. She recently suggested we provide new bunk beds with larger mattresses and a DVD library. Needless to say these will be in place ready for our next guests and of course for you should you come again. Thanks Fiona

“Excellent accommodation, highly recommended!”
Reviewed September 2, 2011 for a stay in February 2011

This is the first time we have stayed at the Granary and we had an absolutely wonderful time. We found it to be very spacious yet very comfortable and absolutely immaculate. The Granary is set in a beautiful village and the nearby beaches are superb. As a group (4 generations of family) it was lovely to have such a roomy well stocked kitchen, with no juggling pots and pans or bodies! The younger generation enjoyed spending time in the games room whilst the older generation enjoyed many evenings with a glass of wine in front of the wood burner. Our holiday was enjoyed by all, and we are looking forward to returning later in the year.
