A charming, 200-year old, rose-fronted cottage in a quiet terrace adjoining woodlands in the historic and welcoming market town of Harleston.

Offering quality, well-equipped accommodation, this delightful property boasts sloping floors and walls, original beams, an inglenook fireplace with woodburner in the cosy sitting room and a queen-size bedroom with views over the countryside.

Wander down the lovely, mature garden, rich in birdlife, to discover a second, secret garden with a babbling brook.
