Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Ashwood Manor is believed to have been built around 1840 and has subsequently been altered and extended and was named "The Villa" in 1898. The property has been extensively renovated, refurbished and improved by the current vendors having formerly been used for a variety of uses including residential, hotel and hostel.

The house offers a tremendous opportunity with luxury holiday cottages and a superb swimming pool complex capable of producing a regular income with high repeat occupancy rates.

The main house has a splendid drawing room with feature fireplace, original coving, dado railing and wall panelling and where possible period features have been retained including parquet flooring. Improvement works to the house have included re-wiring, re-plumbing and new heating systems. There is a spacious well-fitted kitchen/breakfast room with Aga opening out onto a conservatory and recessed ceiling lighting has been used to some rooms adding to the natural light.

The luxury swimming pool complex is maintained at 31°C with an oil-fired boiler and filtration system together with ladies and gentlemen shower room and fitness room. There is also direct access to the garden.

To the south of the property are the mainly lawned gardens and grounds with a large pond and beyond fenced paddocks with stabling, manege area, field shelter and feed area.

Ashwood Manor Cottage and The Wing are currently let through English Country Cottages and further details are available from the Agent. These could be used as ancillary accommodation to the main house.

Ashwood Manor occupies a delightful south-facing position overlooking its own gardens, grounds and paddocks on the southern edge of the village of Pentney. The village of Narborough (1 mile) offers a range of local amenities including a convenience store, post office, school and church.

The market town of Swaffham (6 miles) provides an excellent range of shopping, schooling and leisure facilities and includes both private and public schools, local shops and a Waitrose store.
The ancient port of King's Lynn (8 miles) to the west has a more extensive range of facilities and there are links from both King's Lynn and Watlington to Cambridge and London Kings Cross (about 100 minutes).

This popular area of West Norfolk is predominantly made up of arable farmland and Ashwood Manor looks towards the River Nar and there are many local fly and coarse fishing opportunities available in the neighbouring village of Narborough.

There are numerous places of local interest including the gardens at Sandringham, RSPB Reserve, Snettisham, lavender fields at Heacham and seal watching from Hunstanton and Wells. The North Norfolk coastline offers a host of activities from water sports, walking, riding, golfing, sea life centre, country inns and fine dining.
