“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.

“Fantastic house for a large family”
Reviewed November 6, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

There were 6 adults and 4 children in our family group, children ranging from 8 months to 15 years. Everyone of us thoroughly loved the house and all the space. Bedrooms were perfect, lots of bathrooms! sun lounge a lovely area and the rooms downstairs were so spacious. The property was immaculate and contained everything you could think of for domestic use and the games collection was massive. As you are a car ride away from most things in an evening, the variety of games for family entertainment were very welcome. The area along the cost is picturesque and was very autumnal at the time of year that we visited.

Thank you for reviewing your stay at the Granary. I am glad your family enjoyed the Games Room. We try to cater for all ages. I am also glad you enjoyed the sunroom, I love the view and 'feel' in that room too. We recently invested in nice deep mattress toppers for the single beds too, including the bunks, for that added bit of luxury. Thanks again, Fiona

“Spacious, well equipped property, ideal for large family gathering.”
Reviewed October 13, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Three generations of our family had an excellent weeks stay at The Granary. The property is extremely spacious with good sized rooms and a large dining area. The games room was a big hit and all the bedrooms were comfortable with good bathroom facilities. The local pub provided good 'pubby' food and there was a midweek quiz. It is very popular so booking is recommended. Easy walk to Overstrand and lots of good local walks, our favourite was from Sherringham Hall taking in the coastal path. Overall an excellent base for large groups wishing to explore this part of Norfolk.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at The Granary. I am delighted to hear that you all enjoyed your stay and that you also had a good time at The Foundry. We have been receiving really good feedback about the food there, which is good news for us and great for our guests. We recently purchased nice deep mattress toppers for the single beds too, so the 'comfy' beds will hopefully be even more comfortable. Thanks again

person found this review helpful

Our extended family (now 4 married couples and 6 children) thoroughly enjoyed staying at The Granary in August in 2010 and 2012. Fiona is very helpful and efficient in confirming bookings and answering any questions. The property is not only exactly as described but also immaculate on arrival, thanks to excellent local 'housekeeping'. Whilst washing has usually dried quickly on the rotary line in August, the availability of a tumble drier would be a very welcome 'fall back'. Overstrand Beach is only 1.5 miles walk away via a very quiet lane with suberb views from the top of the hill.

Glad to hear your second stay was as good as your first. I will pass on your complements to Jo & Jez from VW Property Services, I would be lost without them and Jo is 7 months pregnant and still whizzing round! Thank you for your kind comments, it is always nice to hear when we get things right. I will see if we can find room for a tumble drier.
