The property's location on Common Lane puts it at the heart of the historic village of Brockdish and means that it is no more than 50 yds from the bus stop, the Village Hall and Brockdish Common, a wooded area of natural beauty which leads down to the River Waveney (that marks the Suffolk-Norfolk border), and only 100 yds from the Old King's Arms public house. Over the years the village has proved to be a popular and sought after location offering an attractive assortment of many period properties. It retains a strong and active local community with the benefit of a well regarded public house, fine church and regular transport links to Diss and Harleston. A more extensive range of facilities can be found within the market town of Diss lying 7 miles to the west of Brockdish with the benefit of a mainline railway station with regular/direct services to London Liverpool Street and Norwich. Additionally, Harleston is some 3 1/2 miles to the east offering a good range of day to day amenities and facilities.
