About The Grove, Cromer

Whether you’re planning an adventure-packed family holiday or an indulgent romantic getaway, The Grove in Cromer, Norfolk has it all - a stunning Georgian Hotel suitable for families and 6 beautiful self-catering cottages - great for small or extended families. 

With a range of en-suite bedrooms in the beautiful Georgian house and newly created contemporary Orchard Rooms overlooking landscaped gardens, as well as six self-catering cottages in the adjacent barn conversions, there is something for everyone wanting to explore the beautiful coastline of North Norfolk.

The Grove has an award winning 2 AA Rosette restaurant serving breakfast, Sunday lunch and dinner using seasonally inspired and locally sourced food.

Family run and family friendly, The Grove offers a wealth of facilities for you to enjoy during your stay, including a heated indoor swimming pool, table tennis table, 4 acres of garden featuring our children’s play area, tree house and its very own private path through beautiful woodland to Cromer beach.

Just a short walk from the town centre and within easy reach of the stunning villages along the coast, The Grove is a perfect base to explore the delights of North Norfolk.

The Cottages

The Grove offers a collection of six beautiful and homely self-catering cottages. The Holiday Cottages in Cromer sleep between two and six people. Five of which are dog friendly and all of them are child friendly.

Each cottage is fully heated and furnished to the highest standard, offering a well equipped kitchen, exclusive dining facilities and a cosy lounge area. A digital television and complimentary WiFi are available for your entertainment, along with a telephone. Large cosy beds, crisp linens and fresh towels can be found in each of the rooms and cots and highchairs are available upon request.

Guests in the cottages are welcome to take full advantage of the on-site facilities here at The Grove, including the heated indoor pool and children’s facilities, as well as delightful woodland with a secluded walk down to the award winning Cromer beach.

Best Bits

Two of the family rooms in the hotel are within baby monitor range – ideal if you want to have a meal in the restaurant without needing to find a babysitter.

There’s plenty of space in the grounds for roaming around, climbing trees or kicking balls. 

The large pool is heated and indoors so can be enjoyed all year round, and by all guests.

It’s just a five-minute walk from here to the beach – easy enough that even young children can manage it.

Top TIps

Bring your wellies, especially as you have to head through woods to get to the beach. 

Cromer’s beach is great throughout the year, whether rock pooling at low tide, collecting stones and shells, or searching for fossils. 

Head to the beach for the morning’s high tide and you can watch the crab boats come in – the fishermen are always keen to show off their catch. 


Self-catering facilities are provided for the cottages. 

The hotel restaurant serves light bites in the early evening and then a full dinner service after that. Afternoon tea is also served here, plus Sunday lunches. Private dining is available. 


The spacious indoor pool means you can enjoy a swim whatever the weather. Grown ups can head to the Massage Hut for some proper relaxation. 

Kids will love exploring the grounds, where they’ll discover a tree house and a trampoline. And of course the beach is only a short, and very pleasant, walk away through woodland.

Tips from the Owners

North Norfolk is absolutely beautiful and there are so many wonderful beaches to discover – not least Cromer’s which is just a short walk away. 

There’s plenty of National Trust properties to explore nearby, including Fellbrigg Hall, which has buggy-friendly paths to explore through the estate.

Amazona Zoo in Cromer offers the chance to learn all about South America, as well as to get up close to animals like jaguars and tapirs.

For some good old-fashioned seaside fun, be sure to visit Cromer Pier.

Budding paleontologists will love ROARR! Dinosaur Adventure, complete with a splash zone for hot days.
