Description

A traditional shooting lodge on a farm just 1.5 miles from Beccles with wonderful spaces for entertaining and dining both inside and out.

BECCLES 1.5 miles (2.5 km), LOWESTOFT 9 miles (15 km), SOUTHWOLD 13.5 miles (21 km), NORWICH 18 miles (29 km)

Converted from old farm barns to a shooting lodge, the property offers all the accoutrements a country gentleman or lady might require including an en-suite shower or bathroom for every bedroom, a well stocked bar, a dedicated snooker room and a grand dining room, the table coming from Ham House.

Guests can arrange the occasional catered meal or a fully catered weekend with their breakfast ready for them when they come downstairs in the morning. And with Team GB achieving Gold in the 2012 London Olympics shooting you might like to try your hand at Clay Shooting - minimum 8 guns.

On the Norfolk/Suffolk border just a mile and a half from Beccles and within half an hour of Norwich, there are many activities available close by including coarse and trout fishing, boat rides on the Broads, clay pigeon shooting and of course trips to the coast at Southwold and Lowestoft.

The southerly Broads are just a mile from the house. Now a National Park, the Norfolk Broads stretch from Beccles to Wroxham and Potter Heigham in the north, with around fifty shallow lakes and some 190 kilometres of waterways and some excellent cycle routes and footpaths both beside the water and across the beautiful Norfolk countryside.

Clay Shooting - exclusive training and game days can be arranged on the farm for groups of 8 - 16 with a barbecue and drinks included if you wish.

The city of Norwich, with its stone castle, medieval buildings and narrow cobbled streets, should not be missed. As well as great shops, restaurants and pubs, Norwich is a centre for the arts.
