South Lopham, nr. Diss
These holiday properties, standing 100 yards apart, offer a superb base for exploring the delights of Norfolk and Suffolk. Commanding sweeping views over pretty, undulating countryside, Piglet Barn (ref E4732) is a spacious, architect-designed conversion of a contemporary barn with its own private terrace and lawn. Kingfisher (ref E4992), converted from former cart-sheds and attached to the owners’ listed barn conversion, and named after the pond’s resident kingfisher, is a delightful character property with windows directly overlooking a large pond, and with its own private garden. These properties are set within the owner’s 2-acre grounds, just 5 miles from the attractive market town of Diss. Historic Bury St Edmunds and the medieval city of Norwich, with its cathedral, castle museum, galleries, cinemas, theatre and excellent shopping, are both within an easy drive, as is the quaint seaside town of Southwold on the Suffolk Heritage Coast. Cycling and walking enthusiasts will head for Thetford Forest, whilst bird watchers and nature lovers can explore the lovely Norfolk Broads, Lopham and Redgrave Fen and RSPB Minsmere.
