Yew Cottage is approached through a five bar gate leading to a long private driveway which in turn leads to an extensive gravelled parking area with space for numerous vehicles and well suited to the secure and easy storage of either a boat or a caravan. This area leads to the Garage/Workshop 23' x 7’7” with power, light and double doors and there is an adjacent Carport 14’10" x 8’10" that could easily be adapted to form a second garage. The front garden is private and well enclosed but also offers views out overt the neighbouring open fields. Gated access leads to:
The generous and private south facing rear garden is extremely private with some mature screening and is dominated by the stunning views out over the adjacent open countryside. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with established borders, vegetable garden, south facing patio and an attractive timber summer house that enjoys an elevated position overlooking the house, gardens and the fields beyond.
Yew Cottage has the benefit of mooring rights in the basin at the nearby Gay Staithe which is located just off Lime Kiln Dyke and this in turn leads to Barton Broad and then out onto the River Ant and beyond onto the rest of the Norfolk Broads network. The mooring is suitable for two small boats or dinghies.
