Stylish Private Apartment In Peaceful Setting

Overview

Property

Updated: 02-Dec-2016
Apartment in Norwich, England - Peaceful Private Location, Two Miles From Norwich City Centr

The Annexe adjoins the owner's home in an extremely quiet location within Thorpe St Andrew, a splendid leafy suburb just one mile from Norwich city centre. This stylish first floor apartment offers an inviting sitting room with dining area and French doors to a small south-facing balcony, perfect for a relaxing morning coffee overlooking mature private gardens and a wooded dell. This apartment also has a compact well-equipped fitted kitchen and a bedroom with en-suite and brand new (2015) luxury pocket spring king size bed. Outside, there is a lawned garden which is an ideal spot in which to relax with a book or dine alfresco with a glass of wine on a warm summer’s evening. Just a short walk from The Annexe is a choice of excellent pubs located on the banks of the River Wensum, where you can sit and watch the passing boats from the riverside. The Annexe is superb for couples and those seeking to holiday in a haven of peace and tranquillity, but central to all that Norwich and Norfolk can offer. Norwich has many places of interest, including museums, galleries, cathedrals, good shopping and a wide choice of eateries. Within easy travelling from this Norwich cottage apartment are the attractive Norfolk Broads, and all of Norfolk's beautiful coastline. A welcoming Norwich cottage apartment for a relaxing city or country break.

About the Owner

We are fortunate to live in such a wonderful stylish area of Norwich, close to the river, pubs and cafe, but far enough away to be secluded and peaceful. We know the area is a fantastic base for holiday makers and this is why we have created The Annexe.

Comments directly from historic Trip Advisor Ratings on The Annexe -



“Five Star - Great Stay, Lovely clean, comfortable, well appointed apartment with balcony overlooking beautiful garden. Few minutes walk downhill to river. Several pubs with plenty of riverside seating. Also handy for Norwich, the coast and the Broads. Short drive from local supermarkets. Pleasant helpful owners. Would thoroughly recommend.”

“Five Star - Great!! The Annex exceeded our expectations. The apartment was immaculately clean, with modern, up-to-date appliances. The sofa in the living room was exceedingly comfortable and of excellent quality leather. We were treated to being the first visitors to enoy the brand new carpet that was laid the day before! The bedroom facilities were also very good with a full-size wardrobe and a very comfortable double bed suite. The gardens viewed from our first floor balcony are beautiful and just as immaculately cared for as the apartment. Our hosts were extremely helpful in giving directions and making sure we had everything we needed. We truly loved the city of Norwich with its old-world buildings, and in particular the daily fresh produce market. Watching the houseboats and children feed the swans on the river at the hamlet of Thorpe St Andrews which is the actual location of The Annexe, was fun.”

August 2014



“Blissfully quiet but not remote. Easy access by bus to city centre. Lovely, light-filled living room/dining area, kitchen and balcony. Owner's stunning gardens next to woodland.”

A delightful accommodation to support any choice of holiday style.

  • 5 of 5

The 'Annexe' is a modern accommodation with all essential requirements, It is very quiet, private, and comfortable. The balcony is ideal for a summers evening tea or tipple overlooking a pretty garden, parking is off road and quite secluded. The owners are charming and ever helpful should you need them. At the bottom of South View road there is a good selection of restaurants either left or right and a nearby Sainsburys for self catering. From here Norwich and the beautiful county of Norfolk is at your leisure, enjoy!

The apartment is first class and is in a great location a five minute walk to the riverside and sit and watch the world go by.

A choice of pubs along the river were all good.

A very warm welcome from the owners was made to feel it was home from home

Excellent Accommodation in Norwich

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good holiday in Norwich staying at this apartment. We found it warm and comfortable and equipped to a very high standard.

The location was also good since there were several places nearby to eat out and also a Sainsburys quite near if you wanted to eat in.

We used the bus to get into Norwich and the car to explore further out into Norfolk where we found plenty of places of interest.

We would certainly recommend this property and would stay again in the future if we come back to explore more of Norfolk.

Peace and tranqui[ity

  • 5 of 5

This property was exceptionally clean and well maintained. It was well equipped.The location was good, but definitely further than a mile from the City Centre as stated on the heading, we felt it was more like 2.5 miles (on AA route planner we have just found it to be 2 miles to the train station, which was at the start of the city, so 2.5 miles is more accurate to the centre). A little disappointing as this did limit the frequency we walked into Norwich particularly in an evening. Despite this small inaccuracy (which we trust will be reviewed), we would most definitely still recommend this property to our family and friends. We have 2 or 3 friends already interested in visiting this property. We loved the peaceful and tranquil setting, in a lovely safe, leafy area and appreciated the owner's entrusting their property into our hands for a week. Thank you Rachel and your family.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your response - it's lovely to know you enjoyed staying at The Annexe so much and that you have recommended us. I will amend the details concerning the distance to the city centre as based on the easiest route it probably is nearer 2.5 miles and it would probably be a bit difficult for us to explain the shortcuts that we use when we walk in.
