Description

A charming self-catering cottage in a rural spot near Diss. The ultimate family holiday home with garden and parking, close to the Norfolk Broads.

The Cottage is great… completely refurbished to offer stylish contemporary interiors on the Suffolk/Norfolk border. Accommodation is over two floors with three bedrooms and spacious reception rooms for sociable living, perfect for a celebration with family or friends. The sitting room has exposed wooden beams, soft seating and a cosy wood burning stove, a relaxing retreat during the cooler months. In contrast, the garden room is perfect on warm summer days, with doors out onto the patio for alfresco living. Children will love the ‘den’, furnished with bean bags and sofa, a place of their own to chill out and watch TV or play games…(there’s Netflix too if you have an account!).

This dog friendly holiday home ticks all the boxes for style and location - get out and about and explore this beautiful area… walk (or drive) into Diss, around 2.5 miles, home to independent shops, cafes and restaurants and well worth a visit. Don’t miss the Mere and gardens - very picturesque. There’s a train station in Diss with connections to London and a good option for visiting Norwich, (20 minutes) a shoppers paradise! Children will love Banham Zoo and the Bressingham Steam Museum and Gardens are also worth a visit. Take a stroll along Thornham Walks with its buggy friendly paths… dogs on leads are welcome too!. 

The Cottage within easy reach of Yaxley Hall and Abbey Hall, perfect for accommodating wedding guests.

Coast at Southwold 27 miles, Diss 2.5 miles, Bungay and the Broads 16 miles, Norwich 21 miles, Bury St Edmunds 24 miles.

Why we love this property… a tardis like cottage in the countryside, a luxurious dog friendly bolthole with Diss on the doorstep and an awesome kid’s den!
