The formal south facing gardens extend to approximately three and a half acres, laid mainly to lawn with a variety of mature trees, shrubs and flowering borders. A raised terrace offers stunning views of the grounds and out over the Waveney Valley beyond. The grounds offer peace and privacy and are a haven for an abundance of local birdlife and wildlife. Nestled in the grounds is a summer house/lodge which could be returned to its former glory and to provide a charming retreat.

An unadopted roadway separates the formal gardens from the marshland and the private mooring dyke which extends to over 600ft providing huge capacity for the mooring of multiple boats. As you continue to the end of the dyke a picturesque clearing offers an extremely tranquil setting to enjoy the unspoilt and panoramic river views.

There is access from here to the entire Norfolk Broads network and, via Lowestoft, out to sea.
