    About this property

    • The Property
      Cranmer Hall Barn and self-contained wing, known as the Orangery, is an exceptional conversion completed to a high standard, in a private setting approached via a long drive with views out over adjoining farmland.

      The property was skillfully and sympathetically converted by the current owners in 2014, with great attention to detail throughout. Each living area has a bespoke handmade kitchen and the bathrooms are of the highest quality with extensive use of marble. The internal joinery is also of very high quality with many of the doors of hardwood with fielded panels.

      As it is currently configured the main house, The Barn, has substantial accommodation of about 2,500 square feet and the Orangery has an additional 1,500 plus square feet and can be used as secondary accommodation, guest accommodation or holiday use and is linked to the main house by a oak and glazing hall.

      The property, approached by its own drive and entirely separate, is situated within the historic curtilage of Grade II listed Cranmer Hall.

      Outside
      The house is approached via a curving gravelled drive bounded by a fine old red brock wall, the drive leads around to the south of the house where the Orangery is situated and then continues to an entrance into a large gravelled courtyard situated to the north and east. This leads to the entrance of the Barn where there is a further gravelled area immediately to the north. The gardens and grounds have been carefully landscaped and planted and have beautifully enhanced the setting of the property. Situated to the south, running the full length of the Orangery there is a stone paved terrace edged in lavender and this overlooks an area of lawned garden and orchard separated from the surrounding fields by a mixed deciduous hedge. There is a wrought iron pergola trained with climbing shrubs against the south facing wall and there are fine views over the surrounding fields to woodland beyond. In all about 0.5 of an acre.

    What is not immediately apparent is the privacy the barn enjoys, set at the end of a long drive and opening out to farmland. With it being an easy drive to the Burnhams, it provides an escape from busy coastal towns and villages yet the convenience of enjoying all they have to offer.

    Local information

    • Situation
    • Cranmer Hall Barn and Orangery are situated a short distance to the south of the village of South Creake, an exceptionally pretty North Norfolk village of traditional brick, flint and Norfolk pantile houses. The property lies about six miles to the south of Burnham Market, regarded as a central location along the North Norfolk coast and with village green surrounded by 18th century houses. It has an extensive range of shops, restaurants including the renowned Hoste Arms. The market village included a wine merchant, famous fish shop, book shop, doctor's surgery, primary school, post office, as well as a butcher's and delicatessen. The town of Holt, the home of Gresham's public school, is 17 miles. Burnham Market itself is only three miles from the sea which can be accessed from nearby Burnham Overy Staithe or Brancaster Staithe (three miles from Burnham Market) and nearby Holkham, all of which form part of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are delightful beach and sand dune walks, particularly in the vast sandy expanse of Holkham Bay. There are many leisure pursuits along the Norfolk coast including golf at Brancaster, riding, sailing, walking, bird watching with a number of reserves in the area including Cley-next-the-Sea, Blakeney Point and Scolt Head.
    • There are mainline railway stations to the southwest at King's Lynn and Downham Market with regular trains to King's Cross.
