Stylish and sleek, contemporary and yet timeless, this luxury self-catering retreat is an unexpected find, tucked away in the North Norfolk hamlet of Cranmer. Located just a few miles south of the Royal Norfolk Coast, and originally built in the late-1800s, the Orangery features full-length windows through which friends and families will discover the finer meaning of tranquillity.
Where flowers grow
It used to be that an orangery was a room or building in which orange and other fruit trees were protected and allowed to grow. Surely, even a short stay at the Cranmer Hall Barn Orangery will have the same effect on you. Standing within the same grounds as the Cranmer Hall Barn, the Orangery is decorated with elegant chandeliers, an antique Spanish dining table, and Georgian chairs, all awash with natural light within a neat and airy open-plan sitting room and dining room. This juxtaposition of new and old imbues the property with stylish confidence and doesn’t compromise an ounce on comfort. Featuring a floor-to-ceiling Swedish wood burning stove and plush leather sofas, there is nowhere comfier to curl up with a good book and a cup of tea while the rain scratches softly at the windows.
The Orangery also features a fully-equipped, hand-built “Kestrel” kitchen, so that guests can throw together feasts and easy meals. Whether you gather around the table in the dining room or choose to dine al fresco on the patio, those moments you spend together will feel all the heartier for the rich views of the surrounding countryside.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
The king-size master suite in the Orangery features a handsome mahogany sleigh bed and an en-suite bathroom. Not to be outdone, the single room offers a single mahogany sleigh bed with the possibility of a truckle bed available for an extra fee and by request on booking. This room is set off the main living space and is used for extra seating when not in use as a bedroom. Guests staying in the single room have the convenience of a separate shower room with WC.
Due to the quality of the antiques in the property we regret we cannot accept children. A starter fuel pack for the wood burner is provided. We will require a £250 security deposit, payable two weeks prior to the start of your holiday. Mobile phone reception is variable.
Special Note: Cranmer Hall Barn Orangery can be booked with Cranmer Hall Barn which sleeps four. This arrangement is ideal for extended parties who wish to holiday together but retain their own space.

Clean and comfortable - finished to a very high standard. Lovely terrace on which to eat, read and watch the wildlife.Ms Victoria Berkson - 6th June 2019
For anyone who values peace and quiet, this is the place. We have enjoyed elsewhere in North Norfolk with Norfolk Cottages but this was the best!Mr Brian Ekers - 11th April 2019
Cranmer Hall Barn Orangery was the best place we have ever stayed in Norfolk. Wonderful location, surrounded by wildlife and countryside, and beautiful warm and spacious living spaces. We're looking forward to returning as soon as possible!Mrs Helen Richards - 8th March 2019
We absolutely loved the Orangery. It felt like we were at home from the moment we stepped through the door. We will definitely return.Mr David Harvey - 15th October 2018
Our holiday coincided with the coldest February week for five years, however The Orangery proved a wonderful, warm retreat. Having taken all necessary provisions with us, it wasn’t a problem to be snowed in for three days and gave us the perfect opportunity to relax and appreciate the expansive landscape and wide variety of wildlife. Spending our days inside was a real pleasure in such well-furnished surroundings and we can appreciate how amazing it would be to stay there in the summer, with the doors wide open. Norfolk Country Cottages were extremely helpful when we needed to stay an additional night for the snow to clear and the roads to become safe to drive home and were quick to respond to all our enquiries. Mrs Paula Duffield - 6th March 2018
Really enjoyed the property and its location.Paul Sales - 23rd October 2017
This property was everything the website showed it to be. The standard was excellent, and the location was perfect. I spoke to the owner on the morning of our departure, and pointed out the only flaw we found was the lack of storage in the bedroom, but this already in hand. Ms Sue Wilcox - 10th July 2017
