SITUATION Plumstead Green is a small hamlet made up of just a few individual period homes situated within the village of Plumstead. The village and civil parish of Plumstead is approximately 8 miles from the North Norfolk Coast and 4 miles from the Georgian market town of Holt with its wide range of shops. The village has a parish church and was mentioned in the Domesday book where its name is recorded as Plumestead. The nearest pub is The Pigs at Edgefield, a gastro pub offering a varied menu. Holt is one of the most attractive small towns in Norfolk in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The town existed before the Norman invasion but was destroyed by fire in 1708. It had to be rebuilt and we're very lucky that the timing meant that the Georgian style was used. The main street is lined with colour-washed Georgian buildings, many of architectural importance. There are tea and coffee shops, lots of antique and curio shops, food shops and delicatessens, banks, independent shops and, of course, historic Gresham's School founded in 1555. The delightful seaside towns of Sheringham and Cromer are a short distance away, and the Cathedral city of Norwich just over 20 miles away.
