Enjoy the outdoors, with an enclosed garden to the front, and a wild garden with trees and seating to the rear. . <br />This single-storey, terrace cottage is located in Santon Downham, a long-standing Breckland Village mentioned in the Domesday Book, situated in the heart of Thetford Forest on the Suffolk/Norfolk border. Built as an estate village for Santon Downham Hall, the village lies on the Little Ouse river, an ideal holiday escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. With a large lawned garden to the front and a rear garden with many trees, shrubs and sitting-out areas, it is just a few yards from the river with views of the bridge built by the Canadian army during World War 1 and used in an episode of &lsquo;Dads Army&rsquo;. Feel free to bring canoes or kayaks, as there is garage storage available. There are many delightful walks to enjoy directly from the cottage and nearby Thetford Forest is ideal for walking and cycling with the Peddars Way footpath and National Cycle Route - also close by is Oxborough Hall (NT). The North Norfolk Coast, Norwich, Sandringham and the Norfolk Boards are less than one hour&rsquo;s drive. Thetford is 6 miles and Elevedon is about 8 miles. Also within easy driving distance are Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket with its famous racecourse, and Cambridge. Shop 100 yards, pub 2&frac12; miles, restaurant 3 miles. .
