Close to beautiful woodlands and the charm of central Norwich - Norwich home swap

Welcome to our warm and peaceful home. We are very fond of natural colours and a sense of space. Rachael was inspired by some Japanese design after living in Japan for a year. The house is very light although this can be hard to capture in all the photos and we have a south-facing garden. We hope there is a sense of hygge in our home as this would reflect the way we try to live.

We live in a friendly close where the neighbours are kind and supportive but do not interfere. It is quiet and has small shops nearby for essentials.

We have pet chickens so you are welcome to help yourself to their eggs and tend to them but if you would rather not feed/ water and shut them up at night then a neighbour can be requested to do this (or they can go and stay with their Nanny!) We have a recent addition of a beehive this year but the bees pretty much manage themselves and do not interfere with anything :)

Next year we plan to install a pergola, nature pond, vegetable patch and rear driveway which will offer off-street parking through rear gates.

We are very house proud but not obsessively and are are open to having pets stay too.

About the location

We are just 10 minutes by car, 15 minutes by bike or 30 mins by bus from central Norwich. We often walk in via the gorgeous Mousehold Heath woodland which takes about 45 minutes and is very enjoyable. Mousehold Heath is a 184 acre area made up of heathland, woodland and recreational open space. Norwich is said to have a church for every week of the year and a pub for every day of the year! Norwich enjoys a wealth of cultural events and has a vast array of amazing restaurants and cafes. There are many independent shops and various shopping areas. Further afield, the north Norfolk coast can be reached in about 40 minutes and Cambridge and London in under 2 hours.
