Holiday Rental House
Home to possibly Britain's first luxury and carbon neutral cottages, Home Farm Cranmer is a beautiful cluster of eight homely but stylishly converted barns and luxury eco-cottages set on 170 acres of sweeping farmland and gardens just a few minutes' drive from many of the best beaches and sophisticated market towns of the North Norfolk coast. Along with fabulous eco-credentials, cosy wood burners and luxurious touches, these 1- 6 bedroom cottages also benefit from shared use of a striking indoor heated pool, a toddlers play house, useful baby gear and pre-bookable services such as babysitting, meal delivery and massage/beauty therapy, that combine to provide a level of relaxation that can prove elusive on a holiday with toddlers.

Along with fabulous eco-credentials, cosy wood burners and luxurious touches, these 1- 6 bedroom cottages also benefit from shared use of a striking indoor heated pool, a toddlers play house, useful baby gear and pre-bookable services such as babysitting, meal delivery and massage/beauty therapy, that combine to provide a level of relaxation that can prove elusive on a holiday with toddlers. Avocet Cottage is one of three new (Aug 2009) architect-designed eco cottages, which are said to be Britain's first carbon-neutral luxury holiday accommodation. Each has been designed with equal emphasis on style, luxury, comfort and sustainability. From their elegantly furnished sun terraces, guests can watch both the stunning sunsets and the small wind turbine generating their electricity. Meanwhile, the luxurious tiled floors inside the cottages benefit from geothermal (earth-warmed) heating, whilst solar panels provide their hot water. Although small amounts of gas and heating oil are used, they are offset by surplus electricity from the turbine which is sold to the National Grid - bringing the net carbon emissions for the three cottages down to zero. Like all the converted cottages at Cranmer, Avocet combines modern architectural design with the best of the original features, the high vaulted ceilings and beautifully lit timber trusses are complemented by stylish contemporary colour schemes, modern kitchens and stylish, yet practical furnishings - testament to the Johnsons' backgrounds both in design and parenting! The cottage is set on one level making it ideal for both less mobile adults, including wheelchair users, or toddlers, although it may be worth noting that the tiled floors can be slippery when wearing just socks. Avocet sleeps six in 3 bedrooms (1xdbl, 1xtwin/dbl & 1xtwin with 2x2'6' beds) but can interconnect with Garden House, to create a large, 6-bedroom cottage with spacious communal lounge and dining table for 12.More
