“Fabulous House”
Reviewed October 7, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed here with a group of friends as part of our annual girly get together. We have rented many houses over the past few years and this one was by far the most spectacular. Not only was it very tastefully renovated, we loved the internal flintstone walls!, but it has a very homely feel to it and felt comfortable from the moment we walked in.

All the bedrooms are a good size, even the attic rooms, where I ended up sleeping, were really cosy and all the beds really comfortable. I loved the little en-site bathrooms tucked into the eaves of each of the attic rooms.

The kitchen is well equiped, and fantastic for socialising whilst cooking as has a huge dining room table at one end. The living room is enourmous, and we all made full use of the games room next door as well. There is even a dressing up box in the games room. This house has lots of space so even if there is a lot of you there is always somewhwere to disappear to. The little upstairs mini lounge is great for sitting reading on the chaise lounge. The local pub, The Foundry, does good food and is very friendly, so you can always disappear round there as well.

The house is only a couple of miles from Cromer so is really well located. It also has good wifi which for us was inportant as non of had phone reception in the house. This is great if you want to be cut-off from the world of course, but for those of us with families/partners at home the wifi was perfect for staying in touch. You can get phone reception down the end of the drive though!

I would definately highly recommend this beautiful house for either families or a group of friends.

“Fantastic house & location”
Reviewed July 31, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Fabulous large clean house in a great village location. Booking & dealing with the detail was very easy. Plenty of information on the house, surrounding area and other helpful pieces of information were issued without request making the booking process really easy.
The friendly village pub was a winner, serving great food and plenty of local ales too.
The nearest sandy beach we found was located in Overstrand.

We would absolutely recommend you book & utilise this property NOW

Many thanks for both reviewing and recommending the Granary. I am so glad you enjoyed the location too, we spent 2 years looking for a property that ticked all the boxes, so it is good to know it is appreciated. Good to hear all is well at the Foundry too. They have a great knack of making our guests feel like locals. It isn't everywhere where you can drop a credit card in the loos and still get it back....but this is one.

“The whole family were happy”
Reviewed July 16, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We came as a group of 11, ages from 8 to 83. The oldest remarked how comfortable and clean it was, enjoyed the garden. The youngest, I have been told, didn't want to leave. Thanks for being the perfect place for an extended family break.

“Beautiful, spacious and well-equipped in a lovely location”
Reviewed May 6, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

This was our second visit yet the granary still had the 'wow factor' for us! Lots of space for the whole family (3 generations) - we loved all sitting around the table together, the kitchen is very well- equipped, as is the rest of the house. The games room was popular with the children and adults alike and the living room is very spacious, we would like to return again in colder weather and use the wood burner! The bedrooms are beautifully furnished with lovely individual features in each one. ( the new bunk beds were great!), and the beds were very comfortable. The sun room is a great place to escape and relax, there is enough space there to enjoy quality time all together and also to retreat and relax quietly. Location is lovely too! Thank you, we had a wonderful time!

Thank you for reviewing your stay at the Granary. I am so glad your stay, second time around, was as good as the first. Every year we make improvements, some are not so evident and other are more obvious, like new kitchen and walk in shower and new sofas. We love it when our guests return. I am glad you enjoyed the comfy beds, as many of these are new too! Hope to see you all again some time and thanks again.

“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
