We were attracted to the development because it offered us the peace of mind of being able to leave the apartment without having to worry about security. We have just come back from a holiday knowing that whilst we were away we could lock up and leave knowing our home was completely safe and secure.

Living in Harleston

Harleston itself has been voted Norfolk's town of the year on several occasions and it’s not hard to see why. Aside from its enviable location, it packs a punch when it comes to enjoying a vibrant community feel and a long history. To discover the local history pop to the tiny but informative Harleston museum.

There are a wide variety of places to relax and enjoy something to eat or drink in the town too. Try the Wortwell Bell or the Red Lion for traditional pub food; Momiji Japanese restaurant or the Taste of the Raj offer popular Asian fare, while the Parlour Tea Rooms in the Cornucopia antiques market provides a quirky spot for a cuppa.

Historic Harleston is in the heart of the gorgeous unspoilt wildlife haven of Waveney Valley and is situated near to the banks of the River Waveney, so you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to picturesque walking or cycling routes.
