Property Details

Step inside The Cranny and you've found your perfect holiday cottage. This pretty property is all on one level, and has a fantastic location in the centre of the village - yet only five minutes walk from the beach. The cottage has been completely renovated and refurbished throughout by the current owners, to provide a high standard of accommodation.

The front door opens into the entrance hall, which leads through to a living room on the right with comfortable sofas and a smart TV. The round dining table has seating for five people, or you can dine al fresco in the wonderful private garden. The cottage has an unusual layout, with one bathroom leading off the living room which has a shower over the bath, WC and a washbasin. The well equipped kitchen is also accessed from the living room, and has an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine, slimline dishwasher and microwave.

In the other half of this quirky double roundhouse you'll find two beautifully furnished bedrooms. The master bedroom has a comfortable king size bed and smart TV, as well as an en-suite wet room with a shower, WC and a washbasin. Bedroom two can sleep up to three people with a double bunk bed which has a standard double size bed below, and a 3' wide single bed on top.

Outside The Cranny is set within it's own cottage style garden - a private oasis in the middle of the village. It also has a shed which guests are welcome to use for storing bikes. There's off road parking for 1-2 cars, and the cottage also has wifi. 1 small/medium dog welcome for a small charge of £15.

  • I have recently stayed at The Cranny with a group of my friends and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was spotless and very clean which made our stay even better. We were able to cook in some nights as it also provides a well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed a complimentary bottle of Prosecco from the owners in the evening with an amazing entertainment system on the TV. Very short walk away from the beach and the local pub which is a stone throw away from the cranny serves lovely food. Will definitely recommend staying here if you want a get away in the UK.

  • We have just come back from a weekend away at the Cranny and we want to go back already! It was in a really good location, very close to the beach and a local restaurant/pub. The Cranny provides everything we needed and it was decorated really nicely and was very clean! Also, there was a smart TV which came in very handy for the evenings in. We were very impressed at the added touch of the owners leaving us a bottle of wine out! Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

  • We had a lovely time. The cottage was perfect and spotlessly clean. Our friends own a cottage in the village so we were really close which was great. Winterton is a lovely place to stay especially the walks along the beach and all those seals and seal pups.

  • Ideal base for seal watching and catching up with our family in Norfolk. Recommend Dunes Cafe for breakfast and Hermanus for carvery/veggie version Sunday lunch. Thank you!

  • What a gem of a cottage! Tastefully furnished & decorated with everything you could need & a lovely enclosed garden in a quiet location.
    A nearby pub accepts dogs & does a good range of vegetarian meals, not to mention that the staff are absolutely lovely. The beach is a 10 minute walk away. Highly recommend.

  • I took my Mum to Norfolk to visit some old neighbours and we stayed here for the weekend. It is in a perfect location so close to the beach and the local Pub! The cottage itself is lovely with two good sized bedrooms (one ensuite) and a generous kitchen and living room with plenty of outside space. All mod cons are there yet it is full of character, we had a lovely time and didn't want to leave! Thoroughly recommended.
