A flexible events venue with a green twist

The Green Room was the final barn to be fully refurbished at Cranmer and opened in October 2012. The aim of this room was to offer a fully functional events venue that’s available to local businesses to book and use for meetings and events whilst also being an intimate venue to host yoga classes, showcase holistic therapies and exhibit local artwork and photography displays.

In addition to this, the Green Room is also available for our cottage residents to use, to hold celebrations and parties. It’s even a great private dining area which can be utilised when large group bookings can’t all fit in one cottage dining area and they need some extra space.

This flexible venue combines traditional and contemporary features and can accommodate up to 25 people. It’s equipped with state of the art technology including a large flat screen TV, AV equipment & WIFI internet connection. Specialist lighting has also been installed to offer ambience lighting to suit any occasion.

The venue is self-contained with toilet facilities and a small galley kitchen and all facilities are situated on the ground floor making it wheelchair accessible.

As part of our Green Tourism Gold Award and to support our green ethics, the venue is eco-friendly and powered from our on-site wind turbine and solar panels. In addition to this, we offer recycling facilities, supply recycled pens, pencils and paper, ensure that any unused water is used to water our plantsand only serve fairtrade tea and coffee.

If you’d like to learn more about using the Green Room to host an event, class or party, we’d be delighted to discuss your requirements and organise a venue viewing. Contact us by calling 01328 823135 or drop us an email to bookings@norfolk-luxury-cottages.co.uk

A busy winter at Cranmer

Now that February is here and the nights are beginning to get lighter, it feels like we’re beginning to emerge from the depths of winter and look forward to spring.
We love the early signs of spring cropping up around Cranmer, the odd snowdrop scattered around the grounds, buds beginning to appear on trees and signs of daffodils beginning to emerge from the ground give us a sure sign that the warmer weather isn't too far away.

Whilst we look forward to the coming months, we can also look back and say that we've had a rather busy winter. November saw us launch The Green Room, which is our purpose build events and meetings room. It’s been designed to cater for business hire during the week as is also available for cottage residents to hire to hold family celebrations or use as a private dining room when the cottage space just isn't enough.

We've also had an influx of visitors to the cottages over the winter period. Christmas is always a busy period for us because North Norfolk comes alive over this festive period, but it's also been a very busy January too.

To make the New Year rather eventful, the inclement weather hit us in January covering Norfolk with a good covering of snow. It certainly made the North Norfolk countryside look picture perfect.

In addition to all of this activity, we've also been busy refurbishing some of our cottages. Swallow’s kitchen and Woodpecker’s bathroom and former bunk room are currently undergoing new transformations and we’ll be unveiling the new look very soon.
Looking ahead into February, half term is looming along with Pancake Day and Valentine’s Day too! There are lots of half term activities taking place throughout North Norfolk and it’s not too late to book a break with us.
