Location - Tollgate Cottage looks towards Eye Park with Eye Town Hall visible in the distance. Further along Clint Road two Georgian gatehouses mark the drive to the grand house along which a footpath leads directly to Eye, coming out on Cranley Road at the bottom of the hill. The town facilities can typically be walked to in under half an hour. The cottage itself has fields across the road in front, to the side and behind. The farmland behind is now down to grass for free range egg producing hens to wander around from their farm building within. Historic Eye is blessed with an array of shops and businesses enabling residents to be essentially self sufficient. With schools, both Nursery, Primary and High, a Health Centre and varied social and recreational opportunities, all age groups are catered for. The town includes an impressive mix of architecture and interesting buildings especially when one considers the impressive properties towards the fine, historic Church. With a tower of 101 feet, the renowned Nicklaus Pevsner in The Buildings of England (Suffolk) describes it as "one of the wonders of Suffolk". From the property one can walk across the fields directly to town and enjoy superb views. The excellent shops include for example the friendly 'institution' The Handyman Stores, two butchers, bakers, a fine deli, two supermarkets and chemist and many others complementing those found at neighbouring Diss (approximately 5 miles). Diss is fortunate in being able to offer amongst other things an 18 Hole Golf Course and importantly a well used commuter rail service which runs between the Cathedral City of Norwich to the north and London's Liverpool Street Station.
