In addition, the accommodation also includes a reception hall, sitting room, dining room, fitted kitchen with walk-in larder, utility room, study and downstairs shower room, whilst on the first floor are five bedrooms including a dressing room and en-suite bathroom to the master bedroom.

FAKENHAM Fakenham has been voted the 7th best place to live in Britain by Country Life magazine. It's a market town in central Norfolk - halfway between King's Lynn and Norwich. It has a Thursday market that dates back to 1250 and a Farmers Market on the last Saturday of each month with great locally grown organic produce with real mud on it! There's also a Tesco and a range of shops in Miller's Walk. It's often called the Gateway to the North Norfolk Coast as it's well positioned for the coast and other local attractions like Pensthorpe Waterfowl Park and Fakenham Racecourse. Further away, but easy to get to, are Holkham Hall, Sandringham and the Thursford Collection of steam engines and funfair rides with its wonderful Christmas Spectacular Show - the largest of its kind in England - run by the brilliant John Cushing. There's also the quirky and unique Museum of Gas and Local History! There are plenty of pubs and restaurants as well! There's also the Gallows Sports Centre with golf, squash, tennis, archery, rifle shooting and bowls. Rail access is via King's Lynn (20 miles) or Norwich (25 miles). Norwich International Airport is rapidly becoming a major feeder airport for worldwide travel via Schiphol.
