The property

This superb property dates back to the 16th and 17th centuries, surrounded by quaint, historic towns and packed full of original features, ideal for a family looking for a rural retreat on the border of Norfolk and Suffolk.

As you enter the property, you come to a small hallway with lovely tiling, leading off to different rooms.

Head to the right and enter the dining room, where you will be welcomed by the woodburning stove and character features including exposed brickwork, dark wooden beams and wooden doors.

From here, step into the well-equipped, stylish kitchen which boasts a large Belfast-style sink, a beautiful tiled floor, exposed brickwork, wooden worktops, light units and utility area, where you can cook up a delicious treat for your loved ones to enjoy.

Off the kitchen, the small garden room is a beautiful, quiet space where you can enjoy a moment just to yourself.

Back on the opposite side of the hallway, on the left is the sitting room, complete with seating, a TV with DVD player, good WiFi service and another cosy woodburner, this space is great for relaxing at the end of the day as you sit and chat with your loved ones or watch a film as you wind down at the end of the day.

Upstairs there are three spacious bedrooms, one twin, one double, and one king-size double, a great setup for a family and all of which boast fantastic views of the surrounding area.

Here, you will also find the shared bathroom, which has plenty of natural light and features a good set of facilities including a separate shower cubicle and corner bath.

At the back of the house, a small porch leads out into a large, fully enclosed wall country garden, boasting its own wattle and daub hobbit house and even an air raid shelter, making this an amazing space that children will love playing and exploring in.

Garden House is situated in a super location within easy travelling distance to local attractions including the beautiful Tudor house, Oxburgh Hall, as well as many historic towns and quaint country villages.

For a little more adventure, head to Thetford Forest, just 9 miles away, and enjoy a range of activities including the treetop adventures at Go Ape, mountain biking and plenty of walking trails to explore.

Lynford Hall is a must see, with a stunning natural lake, perfect for bird-watching much like the other surrounding RSPB reserves at Hockwold and Lakenheath.

If you do decide to explore Lakenheath, be sure to check out the incredible RAF aircraft, offering plenty of plane watching fun for the whole family.

Garden House is a beautiful home, perfect for a family looking to spend time exploring the rural and historic villages on the Norfolk/Suffolk border.

About the location


Swaffham 10.5 miles, Thetford 13 miles, Ely 26 miles, Bury St. Edmunds 25 miles

Surrounded by farmland and nestled in beautiful Norfolk countryside, lies the idyllic village of Northwold. The village lies close to the border of Norfolk and Suffolk, making it perfect for exploring and making the most of all that East Anglia has to offer. The church of St Andrew, dating back to the early 13th century, is in the village centre. Northwold lies in an area of Norfolk known as the “Brecks”, which has a unique landscape of beautiful Scots Pine forest, heathlands, wetlands, chalk streams and pingo ponds. Explore nearby Thetford Forest, Grimes Graves (the only Neolithic flint mine open to visitors in Britain), or visit the National Trust’s Oxburgh Hall or Gooderstone Water Gardens (both 6 miles). Venture slightly further afield to the historic towns of Ely, Bury St Edmunds or King’s Lynn for stunning architecture and a superb variety of shops, bars and restaurants. Visitors can also make a day trip to the North Norfolk Coast which is just an hour away. Northwold is a great base for exploring Norfolk, all year round.
