Outside and garden

The Retreat is fully detached.

It is set in its own half acre of garden, with large parking, and turning area.

The garden includes woodland with snowdrops, daffodils and bluebells in spring, and its own gravel garden.

The Retreat has a south and west facing aspect, and its own patio area, with table and chairs, which is a real sun trap.  East Anglia is the driest part of the country, so there are many opportunities to be outside even in the cooler months.

Surrounding area

It is a wildlife haven, with many small birds to be seen all year round. A colony of long tailed tits is always around the garden to admire at close range. To the east of The Retreat is open farm land, in which deer and buzzards are occasionally seen.

The situation is unique, giving both rural isolation in the beautiful Bure Valley area of North Norfolk. It is close to Itteringham, two miles from Blickling, five minutes from Aylsham, , and fifteen minutes from Holt and Reepham. It is within easy reach of the coast, and only a thirty minutes drive to the beautiful historic cathedral town of Norwich.
