Riverside House Ref: CED

Believed to be the oldest surviving house in its village (circa 1590), this spacious, detached, Grade II listed holiday property is beautifully positioned on the Upper Wensum an S.S.S.I. (with resident swans and mallards), yet only 5 miles from the attractive city of Norwich. It stands in secluded, mature lawned gardens, which are completely secure and benefits from sole use of an inter-connecting indoor heated swimming pool. With over 200 feet of private river frontage, two Canadian canoes and decked seating area with canopy cover this makes the perfect spot for visitors to dine and enjoy this idyllic setting, disturbed only by the sound of the occasional rowing boat of an angler. Lovingly restored by its owner, the house features a wealth of exposed beams and timber framing, a re-discovered inglenook fireplace and an original listed door. The sunny yellow kitchen has an enormous pine table for relaxed family meals, and the study is packed with information on the local area. Children will be delighted with their own, quite separate, series of rooms – a dining room with television leads to a games room, and up a staircase to a charming bedroom with beams and low sloping ceilings. Every comfort is thoughtfully provided to create a real home from home. Coarse fishing is freely available (in season) either from the riverbank or by boat, and in two local private carp lakes. From this restful, secluded spot, both the city amenities and the Norfolk Broads are easily reached. Wroxham, the ‘capital’ of Broadland is only 10 miles away, with day boat hire and cruises. Within 40 minutes by car are the delights of the North Norfolk coast: broad sandy beaches at Holkham, a bird and seal reserve at Blakeney, and seaside attractions at Wells. Four golf courses and a floodlit driving range can be found within 2 miles. Tennis, snooker and two pubs in village. Shops ½ mile.

Armswell House Ref: DQT

Surrounded by beautiful Dorset countryside, close to the Dorset Gap, this substantial 18th-century farmhouse stands a mile from the pretty hamlet of Plush with its delightful village inn. Retaining many original features, including ornamental fireplaces and splendid high ceilings, the property benefits from the addition of a games room and spa room in its cellar. With its own large, pretty walled garden, with lawned area and flower borders, it stands in the grounds of the owners’ 650-acre organic dairy farm; there are lovely walks from the doorstep amid the farmland.
The Dorset Gap is nearby, for walks amid stunning scenery, while sandy bays and nature reserves can be found along the World Heritage Coastline just 18 miles away. Dorchester (Thomas Hardy’s Casterbridge) is within driving distance for a wide range of attractions, including a lively weekly market, with the beautiful Maiden Castle sure to be a highlight. A trip to the charming town of Cerne Abbas, with its Tudor architecture, and the nearby Cerne Giant are also a must on any itinerary. There are good golf courses in the vicinity and a selection of excellent inns and restaurants within 7 miles, this truly is an ideal location to suit a variety of holiday needs. Shop 5 miles.
