3 Bedroom Detached House Under Offer
Many people struggle to visualise potential, but when the current owners of Oakside first saw this area they saw an opportunity.
Originally this was a disused chicken farm but our clients saw the chance to create a superb business venture that would give people the time to enjoy the setting as much as they did.
They set about creating three holiday lets and a caravan site with five pitches to enable visitors from the UK and worldwide to enjoy a rural stay in Norfolk.
They have loved meeting people and hearing all the diverse tales they have had to tell. The setting has enabled them to relax watching the wildlife in the opposite fields including deer, hare and a vast array of birds including red kites.
In their 22 year ownership they have transformed the property and effectively rebuilt the principal house which now offers light and spacious accommodation with an excellent open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room.
They also demolished the chicken sheds and built a superb workshop and there is a one bedroom holiday lodge and a pair of two bedroom holiday cottages.
The caravan site, with electric hook-ups, is at the far end of the property with open views over the fields.
When they have spare time they walk along the country lanes to the church and take the walks around the Reedham Ferry.
Having run and loved the business for nearly quarter of a century, the vendors have decided it is time to retire and let someone continue what they started and put their own mark on Oakside.
HADDISCOE The village of Haddiscoe offers primary school, church, active village hall and a local public house.

To the south is the bustling market town of Beccles where again many day to day shops can be found, as well as a supermarket and a railway station. To the north is the Cathedral city of Norwich which has a beautiful heritage, vibrant night-life, sophisticated shopping and mouth-watering restaurants.
This ancient city has been home to writers, radicals and fiercely independent spirits for over a thousand years, and today continues in its legacy as an enclave of culture and creativity. It's perfectly preserved medieval streets are home to a thriving community of small businesses, a vibrant food scene and an established arts culture. It is also a gateway to a county that continues to inspire people with its unspoilt landscapes, open spaces and big skies.
Named as one of the best places to live in 2021, Norwich lies approximately 20 miles from the coast at the confluence of the River Yare and the River Wensum, the latter still bending its way through the heart of the city. In the 11th Century, Norwich was the second largest city in the country, and today is still the UK's most complete medieval city. Strolling through the historic cobbled streets of Elm Hill, whatever the season, the Tudor architecture retains its character and beauty. Laced with merchant's houses, thatching, individual homes, speciality shops and small cafes, you'll be led toward the 1,000-year-old Norwich Cathedral.
To the north of the city the University of East Anglia is a remarkable example of brutalist architecture, and the campus is also home to the Sainsbury centre, a permanent collection of modern and ethnographic art, gifted by the Sainsbury family.
