A grade 2 listed house in small market town ideally situated for exploring Norfolk/Suffolk. The lovely broads and coastal towns such as Southwold are easily accessed and the vibrant city of Norwich is 18 miles away. Harleston has an active community and has many small independent shops as well as a supermarket and bus transport to Beccles, Bungay, Diss, Norwich and the coast. My home is next door to a delightful cafe which opens from 10 to 3pm and serves lunchtime meals.

The space
In the Conservation area of Harleston, the house is over 400 years old retaining many original features but completely up to date for the 21st century. There are stairs up to the bedroom and en suite with a door which keeps it private.

Harleston is a town with many listed buildings, mine being one of them. It is thriving and a very friendly place. 'Harleston Future' is a good link if you would like to see the many activities that occur. We have regular excellent Amateur and Youth performances held at the secondary school. The is a leisure centre and in the school there is a swimming pool which the public can use at certain times and an excellent recreation ground which hosts many of the town 'get together' activities on bank holidays. We have the option of several restaurants and hotels that serve food. Regular informative walks are available that some of our knowledgable residents run giving the history and unique qualities of the yards and ancient coach inns in the town. We have several fishing and/or sailing lakes close by and many lovely walks some close to the River Waveney.

I am a long retired teacher, I live alone and have opened a large double bedroom with en suite bathroom with shower over for Airbnb visitors on a part time basis. The bedroom is at the back of the house overlooking the courtyard garden and is extremely quiet. Plenty of bird song is heard and I enjoy watching and feeding them. I enjoy meeting people. I sing in two groups, play the ukulele, do pilates once per week and swim twice per week and own and care for an elderly horse that I bred 27 years ago. She is kept in a livery yard 4 miles away. I love caring for her and she loves the fact that I do. I don't ride often and don't travel far when I do. The days of showing her are long past! I have a courtyard garden which is overlooked by the bedroom and bathroom and if not in use by myself I would be happy for visitors to sit out there. Very peaceful!
