Norfolk is one of England’s most blessed counties which represent a number of different styles of country living all in the same boundary. Norfolk enjoys some of Britain’s best coastlines, dotted with picturesque villages and little hamlets. It also, of course, hosts the famous Norfolk Broads, an expansive area of wetlands, some of which is denoted SSSI (site of special scientific interest)and all of which offers unique scenery and some extremely original places to live.
Then there are the inland villages, full of pictorial Norfolk country cottages next to village greens. Another of the county’s most appealing assets is the English inn or country pub, which is just round the corner. Norfolk, home to one of the best-loved regional breweries in the UK, enjoys a large quantity of inns and pubs. With its white plastered walls and low slung ceilings ribbed with original oak beams, the place looks stunning. When you transplant the family to the county you really are buying a way of life that’s been lost in most parts of the country.
Norfolk country cottages, like the county itself, represent a wide diversity of lifestyles and places. Coastal cottages boast sun-bleached decks that look out over the sea. Restored village post offices now harbour families rather than the mail but their quaint nooks and crannies still remind you of the bustling trade that would have moved through them 50 years ago. Larger properties, restored farm houses, coast houses and country manors all command sweeping prospects of green and pleasant land.
The city dweller looking to change the pace of life could do a lot worse than moving to Norfolk, which in addition to having a large variety of properties on offer, is also well connected with come major cities, both near and far. Norwich offers shopping, entertainment and employment close at hand. Moreover, rail and road links with London and the centre of the country make it possible for the cottage dweller to commute to work.
Since Norfolk covers huge area, there’s a choice of Norfolk country cottages in a larger number of villages than you might find in comparable parts of the country. The difference has a welcome effect on the local area that is sadly lacking from other such places in the UK. In Norfolk, it is possible to relocate from the city without upsetting the balance of the local community and without finding that the village you have moved to is only full of second homers or relocated city dwellers.
In other words, Norfolk does a better job of retaining its character despite changing demographics for the overall area.
