It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

And to get into the festive spirit, why not head to the Christmas Farmers Market that’s taking place at Creake Abbey on Saturday 1st December between 9.30am – 1.00pm.

With over 55 local producers under one roof, you can stock up on your Christmas goodies or pick out some gifts for friends and families. We’re delighted to have Godwick Turkeys exhibiting and they will be taking orders during the market.

The family friendly market will also have an exclusive appearance from St Nicolas at 11am who will have a sackful of yummy treats for the children who are attending.

In addition to all of the yummy produce that will be available, there will be 3 different plant nurseries plus floral producer Royal Roots, all of which will be supplying a range of seasonal bulbs, wreaths and of course, Christmas Trees!

Full details of the farmers market can be found at www.creakeabbey.co.uk

Please also be aware that we still have availability to stay in our cottages before and after Christmas and we are currently offering 2 night deals. For more details call 01328 823135 or email bookings@norfolk-luxury-cottages.co.uk

The Green Room is officially open!

When we were deciding on how we could use our last remaining redundant farm building, we felt that we could fill a huge gap in the North Norfolk market by offering a high quality, environmentally friendly meeting and events venue. After months of planning, preparation and building work, we were delighted to officially open The Green Room on Wednesday 14th November. 

The venue was officially opened by David Cobham (pictured), a UK wildlife film maker and vice president of the Hawk and Old Trust, who cut the ribbon in front of over 30 local businesses. 

Walsingham Farm Shops provided an array of a range of local produce supplied for guests to sample and also kindly donated a Christmas hamper which was raffled off in a prize draw. 

During the opening, guests also had the opportunity to test their archery skills courtesy of the Fakenham Bowman, learn the art of clay pigeon shooting from Claybusters and also take a tour of Cranmer’s holiday cottages and surrounding grounds. 

The Green Room has been created to offer state of the art meeting facilities within a quiet rural setting. It is ideal for small group meetings, training events and team building days. This purpose build venue accommodates up to 25 people, offers delegates ground floor access, galley kitchen and toilets. Audio-visual presentation equipment includes a 60”TV screen with cinema sound, LAN and Wi-Fi internet access and themed lighting. 

The venue is also available to hire for cottage residents to hold social gatherings and is also an ideal setting to for local artists and photographers to display their work. We are currently exhibiting a range of local wildlife and landscape photography taken by Stephen Mole, Bill Pound, Martin Hayward-Smith & Roger Savell.

We have already received a lot of interest and enquiries to hire The Green Room and are pleased to have bookings in place already. 

Thanks to everyone who has been involved with the development and launch of The Green Room, your input and support has helped us create and launch a new project which is already proving to be a success.
