Sowerbys are absolutely delighted to offer an exemplary cottage on the quiet St James Green/Orchard Lane in Castle Acre. Castle Acre is one of West Norfolk's most desirable villages and cottages of this quality are rarely available. First hand viewing is absolutely essential to gain a full appreciation of the opportunity presented here. This period cottage has a herbaceous cottage garden to the front, a lavender lined path leading to the front door which gives access to a sitting room with solid wood flooring, a kitchen/breakfast room with recently fitted kitchen and integrated appliances. Furthermore, there is a dining room/garden room and decked courtyard garden. To the first floor there are two bedrooms and a family bathroom. There is an en-block garage to the rear providing secure parking or further storage if required. The property is offered with no upward chain.  

CASTLE ACRE Castle Acre is a picturesque village about four miles from the market town of Swaffham and is well known for its 13th century priory and castle ruins. There are interesting narrow streets which focus around the village green where a tearoom, a toy shop and pub/restaurant can be found. At the centre is a fine church and further out a grocery shop. Castle Acre is the mid-point on Peddars Way, the old roman road built to speed soldiers from the south to control the rebellious Iceni. The River Nar flows through fields surrounding the village and these offer an ideal area for country walks. In 2009 a new school was built catering for ages up to year six.
