We were disappointed upon arrival. The property is listed as quirky and old fashioned. That in itself is not a problem and we enjoyed that fact. However, the photographs belie the lack of maintenance and poor state of repair overall. As a house, it must have once been a very pleasant place to live. However, the gardens needed a good weeding and tidRead morey up and the house itself a thorough repair and redecoration. Hide

The house is a beautiful 1930's house set in wrap around gardens providing privacy and great access to local pubs etc. While for some it may seem dated, for us this added to the charm of the place and it does feel you are staying in a period house, we really enjoyed it.

Bure house is a magnificent house on a large plot in an tremendous location but is just unloved. We loved the 1930/40 decor but it is in DESPERATE need of a deep clean, repair and paint. Areas are in a state of collapse and mouldy. The kitchen contents are basic and worn. The mats throughout the property are threadbare. The garden is overgrown, lawRead morens uncut and unkept and fencing down. Paving slabs loose and broken. The fence is not secure. It is just not a 3 star but could be made into 5! Hide

Location is excellent and car parking, the grassed areas are lovely sun traps. There's a nice character about the house, but it needs a serous update.

From the moment we stepped inside we felt the warmth and cosiness of this characterful house. It was like stepping back in time. We loved it, just our kind of house because so often rented properties have been stripped of all character. I would add that it might not however be to everyone's taste if you hanker after all 'mod cons', furniture and fiRead morettings. Hide

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
