  • “Friendly welcome from the owners.”
    Friendly welcome from the owners. Next door, but don't bother you at all... just a neighbourly wave. A beautiful base for so many local places to visit. So quiet and peaceful.

The property

Watton 2 miles.

This wonderful first floor conversion is situated in delightful surroundings, in the village of Carbrooke, in the heart of the picturesque Breckland countryside, two miles from the market town of Watton.

An ideal base for exploring the counties of both Norfolk and Suffolk, this delightful property has been built to an excellent standard creating a comfortable home with character features and views over open countryside.

Access to this superb apartment is via your own door leading you upstairs to the first floor, from where you enter into an open plan living area with its well-equipped kitchen, dining area and sitting area.

There are two good-sized double bedrooms with far reaching views and both share a family bathroom.

Outside you can enjoy a morning coffee whilst sat by the summerhouse that overlooks the beautiful pond, or just relax with a book in this quiet, tranquil location.

For guests who enjoy activities and the great outdoors the area is fantastic for walking and cycling.

There are excellent rural roads for the road cyclist linking beautiful villages, and there’s brilliant single tracks, outdoor activities and events in Thetford Forest.

Golfers can also play a round of golf at the nearby Richmond Park course, or at the popular Feltwell or Thetford courses.

Just two miles away is the small market town of Watton, offering a thriving Wednesday market, as well as a selection of independent shops, pubs, cafes, restaurants, takeaways and two supermarkets.

Within a short drive you can visit the National Trust property, Oxburgh Hall and the English Heritage site of Castle Acre, believed to date back to 1090 and known to be one of the largest, best preserved monastic sites in England.

This is the perfect base for couples and families with a choice of attractions to suit all tastes.

About the location

WATTON

Swaffham 10 miles; Thetford 15 miles; Norwich 23 miles.

The well-served market town of Watton is in the district of Breckland, just less than 25 miles from Norwich. Perfectly positioned for access to the whole of Norfolk and North Suffolk, this town is thought to be where the 'Babes in the Wood' were abandoned in Wayland Wood. You will see on the town sign that there are two babes, and a hare jumping over the barrel reflecting the town name; wat being the local dialect word for hare, and ton for barrel. There is a traditional market held every Wednesday morning with produce including freshly caught fish, and there are two supermarkets and a number of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs to enjoy. Within reach is the popular Thetford Forest Park, a number of golf courses, other market towns and not forgetting the cathedral city of Norwich. A convenient base for your Norfolk adventure.
