Shared indoor heated swimming pool
In the heart of rural Norfolk, adjacent to the owners’ delightfully situated Georgian farmhouse, is a courtyard conversion of 18th century flint and brick stables, which now provides comfortable, well equipped single-storey holiday cottages (refs 25522 and 26577) with shared indoor heated pool and spa (private sessions available on a rota basis). The quiet country lanes are ideal for walking, cycling, bird watching and alpaca spotting. In the evenings, the area is ideal for amateur astronomers and lovers of fantastic sunsets. Cranworth is situated between Thetford and Norwich, and well placed for all that the county has to offer. Fishing and golf are nearby, as is the opportunity to enjoy a bygone journey by train at Dereham. For beach lovers, a visit to the glorious sands of Holkham Bay is a must. Combine a historic trip with some shopping by visiting the city of Norwich, with its array of interesting shops, galleries and restaurants, or enjoy the colours and aromas of Norfolk Lavender and see Sandringham House at the same time. The Norfolk Broads are about 40 minutes away, and both the Norfolk and Suffolk coasts are less than an hour’s drive through some of the most beautiful countryside of East Anglia. Also available by private arrangement with the owner are courses on needle felting, wet felting and an introduction course in alpacas. Shop and pub 3 miles, restaurant 7 miles.
