The property

This welcoming wooden detached bungalow is situated on the owners' delightful estate and working livestock farm, just a few minutes’ walk from the village centre of East Harling.

This lovely, well-presented property appeals to a couple or small family with access to many of Norfolk’s most popular attractions, including Thetford Forest, the city of Norfolk and the wonderful Norfolk Broads.

In a peaceful, tranquil spot, you enter this charming bungalow into a hallway with a storage cupboard to the right where the washing machine is located and then to the living areas, which consist of a kitchen/diner and a separate sitting room.

The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need and is a place where you can rustle up an evening meal before everyone gathers around the dining table to discuss the day’s events.

After dinner, relax in the pleasant sitting room, where on cooler evenings you can light the woodburner and let your cares drift away, or on sunny days open the French doors in the kitchen that lead onto a patio area and lawned garden, where alfresco dining can be enjoyed.

On-site there’s a picnic area with thatched gazebo, set next to the River Thet, which runs through the grounds, plus there’s also a one acre fishing lake available for guests to use, and the remains of Old Harling Hall, once belonging to Henry the 7th’s chancellor can be seen on the estate.

You also have free shared use of the hot tub and pool table.

The South Norfolk village of East Harling has a 15th century church, market square and a range of amenities, including a shop, Post Office and two pubs.

Within reach are many places of interest, including market towns, forest walks, and further afield Norwich, the Norfolk Broads and the coast.

An excellent base for whatever you wish to see and do in the area.
