The search for the perfect South Norfolk village is on! Introducing Ellingham on the South Norfolk and North Suffolk border.
South Norfolk is a wonderful place to live. With its distinctively charming countryside, delightful villages and endlessly appealing market towns, the county offers a unique lifestyle that’s increasingly in demand among homebuyers.
One of the real hidden gems of the county is the delightful village of Ellingham, located in the middle of a beautiful rural spot between Beccles and Bungay, two of the county’s best-loved market towns, each a centre for local life and culture.
Ellingham is getting a lot of attention from homebuyers due to its perfect combination of seclusion and convenience. Those who love the peace and quiet of the country will love the beautiful surroundings and the endlessly appealing walks along the banks of the River Waveney, which passes the village to the south. Walkers will also love the Angles Way, which links Beccles and Bungay and offers an unbeatable dog walking route with the promise of a coffee and cake at the end.
But as well as offering quiet and seclusion, Ellingham is also surprisingly well served by its local facilities. Equine enthusiasts will love both the plentiful stabling and the Crossways equine supply store, while those looking for a new family home will appreciate the local school and the close proximity to the sporting facilities and shops of Beccles and Bungay.
Ellingham is home to a delightful rural primary school, Ellingham VC Primary. This beautiful traditional schoolhouse was originally built in 1865 and still retains many of its original features. The buildings were refurbished in 1999 to add modern facilities, including a separate outdoor education area for each classroom.
The village is surrounded by some of the region’s most exciting eateries and relaxing, traditional pubs. From the Artichoke on the Old Yarmouth Road to the Olive Tree in nearby Kirby Row, to the delicious Thai food prepared at Kit’s Kitchen, there are plenty of places to eat, relax, and spend quality time with loved ones.
