“The Granary is a lovely, large, very comfotable converted barn in a beautiful North Norfol village, near the sea.”
Reviewed April 19, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

The Granary is large and stylish. It is very well equipped and ideal for extended families/groups. It sleeps twelve. It has a great Games Room which includes a snooker table, darts, board games and toys for younger family members. It is light and spacious and its delightful upstairs sun room provides peace and quiet for any member of the group wishing to have quiet time away from the hustle and bustle of the reception rooms and televisions downstairs. It is in a lovely traditional flint village within very easy reach of lovely beaches - the nearest can be visited on foot by those who enjoy walking. I strongly recommend the Granary. Personal touches such as decorations to celebrate my 60th birthday and a bottle of champagne waiting for us, made us feel very welcome. The owner is very friendly and helpful and we will be going back!

“Superb accommodation!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

I stayed at the Granary with my husband, our children and grandchildren - ten of us in all and there was room for more! The weather wasn't brilliant but there are plenty of games to play plus the space to play them. The kitchen is well equipped - everything needed to prepare a full family roast including a huge table to sit round. We would have loved to make use of the picnic area outside but the snow stopped us! One more thing... Amazingly comfy beds! Fiona was extremely helpful and welcoming - lovely touch of a couple of bottles of wine on arrival too!

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at the Granary. I am so glad to hear you had a great time, despite the weather. I am a great believer in a good night's sleep and hence replaced the mattresses last year and put deep toppers on them, which I think makes all the difference, so very pleased it was appreciated. Very Best Wishes Fiona

“5* in every way!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We stayed at the Granary 11 - 15th Feb 2013 and loved it! The Granary itself is just stunning accommodation. The booking process and information we received regarding our stay was excellent and we could not have asked for more. Our family group aged from 8 years to 82 years and I can honestly say everyone was catered for. Plenty of room so you never felt on top of each other. The kids and adults included loved the games room and the great selection of activities it offered. Every one was pleased with their accommodation with simple touches like comfortable beds, good towels and plenty of extra bedding just in case required. We hope to return to the Granary soon. Thanks again Fiona.
PS Top tip if you are townies like we were and struggled to light the fire buy some kindling and the problem will be solved!

“Brilliant place for a family celebration”
Reviewed January 15, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We've just spent a wonderful week at the granary celebrating a big birthday, myself with friends, sons, sisters and brother. It couldn't have been better. The house is so well thought out, loads of room for everyone in comfort. Lovely beds and bathrooms, well equipped kitchen with everything you need and a great big table for all to sit around eating and chatting. The games room was the hub of the house for us and where we spent most of the time There is a lovely pub with friendly locals a very short walk away and lots of good walks and beaches close by. Altogether an exceptional place for familty gatherings. We will definitely be returning soon.

“Fantastic House in a Lovely Location”
Reviewed January 9, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

This house is just perfect for large parties to stay. Well equipped and the games room was used by all especially when it was raining. Children loved the dressing up box. Very spacious house and the family bedroom is just great for parents with little ones. The local pub the foundry was cosy and food was delicious. Not far to travel into Cromer and there is a lovely Thai restaurant called Baan and the food was excellent.

If you have children there is a fantastic park called Dinosaur Adventure Park about 30 minutes drive which was brilliant.

Would definitely recommend this house to anyone.

Many thanks for your comments, I am delighted to hear that you all had a good time at this special time of year and that you also enjoyed The Foundry and the Thai restaurant. I am not sure whether you will remember 'space invaders' but we have just added this 1980's TV game to the hoard of games....it is not for the faint hearted!

“Fantastic,made our Christmas”
Reviewed January 7, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

3 families,including lots of children hired the cottage over Christmas 2012.
This is something we have done at other cottages over the years,but we were really impressed with the Granary.Xmas tree up and decorated on arrival,spotless,well equiped and the house nice and warm.Bedding ,towels and linen were of good quality.Very spacious house with areas of peace if needed.Dart board and snooker table came in very handy for the men.Nice area and pub was also good,so much so the men kept returning,when the kids were loud.
I would not recommend this cottage over Christmas as we want it again!!
Think the owners go that extra mile regarding spare bulbs,toilet rolls,soaps,docking station etc giving that little bit more.

Many thanks for reviewing our property, I am so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay and that you liked the tree, my 3 year old niece helped to decorate it! It isn't very often you will hear me say thanks for not recommending the Granary, but given the rationale behind your comments I must say thank you!

“A fantastic house for get togethers”
Reviewed November 27, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

As a group of friends who enjoy our weekends away, this was definitely one of the best houses we have stayed in. A lot of thought has gone into the house- the kitchen is fully equipped, lovely bedrooms with good quality bedding and nearly all have en suites. The games room was a big hit with the men and boys. The local pub was being redecorated, so we went to The Vernon Arms at Southrepps, lovely pub and gorgeous food. Fiona was so helpful with our booking arrangements. We will definitely book this house again, just lovely.
