Location The attractive village of Worstead lies some 3 miles south of North Walsham, 5 miles north of Wroxham and 13 miles north of Norwich. The village is served by Worstead railway station on the bittern line and within the village there is a nursery and primary school with excellent further amenities at nearby North Walsham with both a mix of independent and national retailers, to include Sainsburys, Lidl and Waitrose supermarkets, alongside a popular weekly market and a monthly farmers market in the centre of the town. There is schooling for all ages up to the sixth form at Paston college, as well as doctors, dentist, optician, library, bank and building societies.

There are two local fitness centres both with swimming pools and a state of the art cinema and arts centre. Nearby Bacton Woods and the Weavers Way provide opportunities for both walking and mountain biking.

The village of Worstead became very prosperous from the 12th century when weavers from Flanders arrived in the area. They had been encouraged to settle in Norfolk by King Edward II of England who had married a Flemish princess. Worstead cloth derives its name from this weaving heritage and whilst this is no longer manufactured in the village, and the last weaver John Cubbitt died in 1882 at the age of 91, weaving and spinning demonstrations are part of the annual Worstead Festival on the last weekend in July. 

Description The cottage stands on the very outskirts of Worstead, just half a mile from the A149. Most likely a farm workers cottage when originally constructed in 1849, the property occupies a most attractive location with delightful views over meadows to the rear, surrounded by a belt of trees.

As will be seen from both our photographs and floor plan, this property has been considerably improved by the present owner and viewing from the road provides no indication of the accommodation on offer. At the rear of the house is a bright and airy sitting room extending to over 19' with multi-fuel stove and bi-fold doors giving access to the rear garden. This room is open plan to an attractively fitted kitchen which includes a range of Siemens appliances. The original sitting room at the front of the property would make an ideal dining room or occasional third bedroom. The ground floor accommodation also includes a particularly spacious bathroom off the reception hall.

Independent access to both first floor double bedrooms can be obtained independently and both also have the use of an attractively fitted family shower room. The master bedroom has a real wow factor being some 21' long with south facing velux windows, an apex roof line and countryside views.

If you are looking for something a little different in the countryside, with the opportunity to add a few finishing touches, then this property should be high on your viewing list.
