SELLERSINSIGHT 'This home has provided a real safe haven for our family with the children having so much freedom as the garden is fully enclosed and they spent many summers with all their friends over.'
'As the children grew up it was a fantastic benefit for us having three bathrooms with teenagers in the house, we all had our own space!'
'The home has a wealth of history and memories and many people in the village can tell you stories of the site. One gentleman from the village who lived here as a child has memories of zeppelins going over during the war, Roman coins were found on the land in the 1970s and many used to stop over here on the Walsingham Pilgrimage in the 11th Century.'
