Wymondham is a charming market town in the county of Norfolk, just 9.5 miles from Norwich. A pretty mix of traditional houses and rural countryside, the town enjoys an enviable location right near the city of Norwich and the stunning coastline. It’s a gorgeous place to retire to, which is why Ortus Homes have chosen Wymondham as the latest location for their luxury living development.
The Ortus Homes development is currently set to feature 19 two-bedroom ground floor bunglaows, 8 two-bedroom chalets and 3 three-bedroom chalets, which will all be equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and decorated in an elegant contemporary style. You’ll be able to make yourself at home in these luxury properties from the award-winning builders Ortus Homes, with spacious bedrooms, fully fitted kitchens and bathrooms and added security features such as intruder alarms, camera entry systems and fire detection equipment.
The proposed Wymondham development is close to all the town’s amenities, including a Waitrose food store and café right next door. You’ll also be within walking distance to the lovely Ketts Park and Recreation Centre, located just over the road. The Wymondham town centre is 0.9 miles from the complex, where you can find independent shops, restaurants, library, post office, banks and pharmacies. There are also two doctors surgeries in town and the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital is a short drive away.
Key dates for your diary
Construction start date, sales release and first occupation are still to be confirmed and are subject to planning permission.
Wymondham has been described by The Guardian as a ‘fabulous place… with a bohemian, eccentric edge’… and this picturesque market town is certainly that and more. Wymondham is a historic town, believed to date back as early as the 2nd century. Many of the medieval buildings were destroyed in the Great Fire of 1615 but have since been lovingly restored and rebuilt. From the town centre, you can see the ruins of the famous Wymondham Abbey, founded in 1107, and the green fields of the nearby Tiffey Valley.
Today, Wymondham has managed to retain its old-world rural charm, with the centre of town built around the 17th century Market Cross. Enjoy fine shopping, traditional English pubs and gorgeous Tudor architecture. Other local attractions include the Wymondham Heritage Museum, Becket’s Chapel and Wymondham Arts Centre. The town also has several popular markets – there is a weekly market on Fridays as well as the renowned Wymondham Farmers Market on the third Saturday of every month.
If you’d like to get out and about, the Wymondham train station (which is an attraction in itself and has even appeared in several films and TV shows) runs a direct service to Norwich every 15 minutes. From the proposed Ortus Homes development, it will be just a short drive to reach the Broads, a beautiful network of rivers and lakes and a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
