LOCATION AND LIFESTYLE This extraordinary development is more than just a collection of outstanding properties - the location offers an incredible combination of city, suburb and countryside benefits which are hard to match anywhere in Norfolk and beyond.

Within walking distance is the village centre with a host of useful amenities. Places to eat and drink such as the bustling popular pubs and the nearby bistro; an array of shops including post office and a butchers; useful healthcare facilities, family parks and walks.

And indeed one of those walkways is famous throughout the county. 'Marriott's Way' is a meandering route than cuts through the very heart of Norfolk, from Norwich to Aylsham. Named after William Marriott, a former Chief Railway Engineer, this beautiful and charming 26 mile footpath, bridleway and cycle path is right on your doorstep. Open all year round, Marriott's Way is famed for the wealth of wildlife you will enjoy on your travels.

And those who seek travels further afield will be delighted to discover that again Drayton is perfectly located. Norwich International Airport is just over a 3 mile drive whilst Stansted is less than 90 miles away. Norwich main line Railway Station is less than six miles away, and now thanks to the recently opened NDR road link which links east and west sides of the city it is a breeze to reach. Those commuting by car to Cambridge or London will find the A11 just 7 miles away whilst the A47 is less than 4 miles to reach. There are also regular buses through Drayton village itself - perfect for accessing the centre of Norwich.

The medieval city of Norwich is renowned as a shopping paradise with a vast offering of high street brands, boutiques and the infamous open air market. The city is also regarded as a great entertainer with pubs galore, restaurants and cafes at every turn, museums, ghost walks, cinemas, sports venues, night clubs and the wonderful Theatre Royal amongst many other attractions.

But for many seeking homes in Norfolk it is the draw of the countryside and coast which is the icing on the cake - and our beautiful 'county of big skies' delivers in spades. The coastline is more than 130 kilometres of stunning scenery including award winning beaches, many of which are only half an hour to an hour away by car. Towns and villages such as Cromer, Sheringham, Wells-Next-The-Sea, Hunstanton, Brancaster and Holkham amongst so many others provide the perfect getaways. And you'll never get bored of exploring the Norfolk Broads, with over 200 kilometres of navigable rivers and lakes to enjoy.

The Lodge at Drayton will open the door to a lifestyle which can be anything you wish to make it.

THE DEVELOPER The Lodge is brought to you by Hidden Talents Development, the name behind some of Norfolk's most iconic hospitality brands such as 'Byfords' of Holt and 'The Pigs' at Edgefield. They also completed the successful residential development at 'The Dial House' in Reepham, a collection of six Georgian conversions and eleven new build homes. The Lodge will mirror the same attention to detail and provide an exclusive way of life you would expect from this exceptional brand.
