Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Occupying an outstanding rural position, the property is found upon a small private lane tucked away in a secluded situation towards the outskirts of East Harling. Surrounded by the idyllic rural countryside, the cottage is nestled within the heart of established woodland giving an idyllic and tranquil setting with beautiful views. East Harling has, over the years, proved to have been a popular and sought after village offering a beautiful assortment of many historic and period properties, whilst retaining a strong and active local community by way of having a good niche infrastructure with schooling, doctors surgery, public houses, fine church, convenience store and post office. The historic market town of Diss is found within easy reach lying eleven miles to the east and offering a more extensive and diverse range of amenities and facilities along with a mainline railway station having regular/direct services to London Liverpool Street and Norwich.
