Situated in rural Norfolk, ten miles from the Sandringham Estate, Ashwood Manor is set by the River Nar and offers both space and comfort, with several sporting activities on offer, and plenty of room to relax amid beautiful surroundings. Adjoining the owners’ home, both properties are located in extensive grounds with gardens, a lake, and an indoor heated swimming pool with sauna. Further facilities include an exercise room, children’s adventure playground and games room.
Ashwood Manor has been renovated and offers comfortable, well furnished rooms, ideal for large parties. There is a spacious sitting room with lovely views over the lake and countryside, separate dining room, and attractive kitchen leading to a conservatory, as well as five bedrooms, one with a king-size four-poster. Ashwood Wing offers smaller but equally comfortable holiday accommodation for a group with fewer people. Guests at both properties have their own enclosed garden and access to the owners’ 7 acres of paddocks; the lake is close to the house but is fenced for safety. Fly-fishing and coarse fishing is available all year round at Narborough trout and coarse lakes ½-mile away. Lake at house available for fun fishing.
The local area offers wonderful woodland/river walks, and the superb gardens and park at Sandringham can be visited when the Royal Family is away. Good places to visit include Castle Rising and Castle Acre. The coast is only 15 miles and is a haven for bird-watchers, with the nearest RSPB reserve at Snettisham, which also has a beautiful church and Park Farm. The long sweep of sandy beach runs from here to Hunstanton and beyond, from where the Norfolk coast path begins. Medieval Kings Lynn, with its handsome waterfront, shops, inns and restaurants is just 8 miles. Swaffham market town, 6 miles. Shop ¾ mile.
