Bay View

LL: "Burnham Mkt (nr)  overlooks Branchester Bay."

JRS "We drove along the coast road from Branchester to beyond Burnham Market on July 24. 2005. There were many buildings similar to this but we did not spot any with the extension and the rounded windows."

Jan Tarrant comments:

"Think it could be "made up". As some of the cottage notes show the very early models show scant resemblance to the "real" building.

We have found "similar houses" to Bayview....... in this area ... plain flint cottages with the curved brick work over the window.

Boat Yard, The * LL: "Sitting beside the River Yare, the boat house's reed thatched roof with decorative ridge together with the 17th century cottage's pantile roof is typical of East Anglia."

Jan Tarrant/Claire Scott info:

It is believed this no longer exists but is based on an old picture.

Potter Heigham

We visited Potter Heigham on July 24 , 2005 and spent 30+ mins driving around but could not find the building.

Jan Tarrant provided more info in the form of reference to "Timpson's England" by John Timpson (upon the cover of which is a photo of the building) it stands " a few hundred yards downstream from the bridge, among more mundane bungalows that line the bank"

According to the BBC site, the building is "The Dutch Tutch" and it's downstream of Potter Heigham bridge because it was too big to go under the bridge.

(jrs note: I didn't find this on a visit.

I now think it's on a road south of

Topshill Road -- 0.5 miles from Topshill  the road

being 1000yards from the A149)

"BE AT one with nature at Sweetbriar Cottage, in Thorpe Market, on the edge of a woodland reserve and deer park at Gunton Estate, known in its day as one of the great Victorian Norfolk sporting estates.

The Grade II cottage retains much of its 1830s character, including leaded-light windows, back-to-back arched-brick fireplaces and exposed beams.

A flexible layout of sitting and family rooms, a kitchen/ breakfast room, study/third bedroom and bathroom is on the ground floor. Planning consent has been granted to convert an attached workshop into two further rooms and a bathroom. Upstairs has two bedrooms. The secluded 2.5-acre gardens contain an orchard, studio and summerhouse. Allow three hours for trains from nearby Cromer to London.

Buyers with Pounds 365,000 to spend should call joint agents Bedfords (01328 730500) or Strutt Parker (01603 617431)."
