New Homes in Norfolk
From days out with the kids at Holkham Bay, to exploring the famous Broads and The Wash, the outdoor life beckons in this part of the UK. If that sounds like it fits the bill, scroll down to see our developments in Norfolk below.
Living in Norfolk
If you want to live in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK where stunning natural landscapes go hand in hand with city living and a good stock of pleasant towns waiting for you to call them home, Norfolk could be the perfect place for you. And thanks to initiatives such as the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme, buying a new home in Norfolk could be a lot more affordable than you thought.
Things to see and do in Norfolk
Whether you’re going for long walks or bike rides along the 80-mile Norfolk Coast Path or exploring the vast Norfolk Broads with its many waterways displaying the true peace and tranquillity of the English countryside, this is a wonderful area to live in for spending time outdoors. From Holkham National Nature Reserve and Pensthorpe Natural Park to Blakeney National Nature Reserve and the Wash, the open scenery in East Anglia takes some beating.
Then there are the beaches, with sunny days out on the sandy stretches of Holkham Bay, Sea Palling Beach and Brancaster Beach great for the whole family. Stroll around Norwich’s pedestrianised city centre, and don’t miss Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure nearby or Great Yarmouth’s Pleasure Beach if you have kids.
Good schools are just as important for your children as fun days out, and Norfolk has many different ones for you to choose between. Trowse Primary is rated as outstanding by Ofsted and one of the best options in the county for younger kids, while Charles Darwin Primary is another of the city’s top choices and Bure Valley School is a good option in the Aylsham area.
Children in that particular town can continue their education at Aylsham High School, which is good according to Ofsted. Back in Norwich, Notre Dame High School is outstanding, along with Sir Isaac Newton Sixth Form Free School.
Transport links in Norfolk
Norfolk’s peaceful character isn’t disturbed by the presence of any motorways, meaning you can use a network of A roads to get around the county if you have a car. Norwich is the epicentre of the region, with roads such as the A146, A140, A47 and A11 all heading to the city. Buses, trains and park and ride services are also available, with trains from Norwich to Ipswich, for example, taking 40 minutes. It’s two hours if you want to get to London.
The Norfolk property market
The local economy in Norfolk has performed well in recent years, leading to a surge in property prices across the county. This is a great time to invest in a new home in the region, with some wonderful properties available in a range of places.
Perhaps you’d like a contemporary 3 bedroom house in Horsford just to the north of Norwich, or a large 5 bed family home in Poringland to the south. Or maybe you’re after a more rural setting in a town like Aylsham just 10 miles from the coast.
Wherever you have your heart set on, don’t miss offers like our Part Exchange scheme to keep your heart rate down when it comes to the stress levels involved with selling your existing home. With this, we could act as your guaranteed buyer, taking you out of any chains while also removing your estate agent fees too.
Help to Buy Norfolk
In Norfolk you can take advantage of Help to Buy East of England if you are a first time buyer. Take a look at the Help to Buy East of England page to find out how the scheme works and how it can help you move.
