Outside and garden
The Retreat is fully detached.
It is set in its own half acre of garden, with large parking, and turning area.
The garden includes woodland, replete with snowdrops, daffodils and bluebells in spring, to old apple trees, full of blossom in spring, and fruit in autumn. It has its very own gravel garden.
The Retreat has a south and west facing aspect, and its own patio area, with table and chairs. It is a veritable sun trap, where it is possible to eat outside not only in the summer, but all year, as it catches the warmth from the spring and autumn sun. East Anglia is the driest part of the country, so there are many opportunities to be outside even in the cooler months.
It is a wildlife haven, with many small birds to be seen all year round. A colony of long tailed tits is always around the garden to admire at close range. To the east of The Retreat is open farm land, in which deer and buzzards are occasionally seen.
The situation is unique, giving both rural isolation in the beautiful Bure Valley area of North Norfolk. It is close to Itteringham, two miles from Blickling, five minutes from Aylsham and fifteen minutes from Holt and Reepham. It is within easy reach of the coast, and only a thirty minutes drive to the beautiful historic cathedral town of Norwich.6
