About Jean Taylor
My husband and I moved here from London in the summer of 2008 having planned our early retirement for many years and we have not been disappointed. We wanted an old house in a rural location with enough grounds to build a holiday cottage, grow our own organic vegetables, have a few chickens and a small fishing lake. We wanted plenty of "projects" and we certainly have that. We worried about settling in to village life and if we would be accepted, but we needn't have worried. We joined in local activities, youd be surprised what goes on in villages and were welcomed very warmly. Our heating/cooker packed up christmas eve and some locals turned up with wood, chain saw and coal and told us it was a "Christmas Present" how is that for kindness, thats what life is about. We live the good life.
Jean Taylor purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Jean Taylor chose Thrandeston
We wanted a rural location to watch wild life and grow our own veg, also where I could do my walking and my husband golf which we love. As soon as we read about the village on-line we fell in love with it before coming here. It was like going back in time. The village pond, old church and village hall with the cute cottages around it. Even the first person I had to phone was so friendly. There are so many walks on the doorstep, horseriders going by, cyclists and even the ocassional motorist, and when walking the dog you get to know them all. We sell our free range eggs at verge and there are lots of other wares to buy. It is away from the maddening crowds, and after city life it is such a welcome contrast. Having Diss Railway Station means easy access directly to London and Norwich.
What makes this Cottage unique
We enjoy walks with the dog on our doorstep. Also we can walk to the local pub and go regularly for meals. We are convenient for Diss Town only 10 mins in car for all our groceries and theatre/shows/restaurants, and only 15 mins by train to Norwich and 1.1/2 hours to London. The roads are great and if need be can drive to London in under 2 hours, unusual to have long traffic jams. We offer 4.1/2 acres of grounds to walk around, chickens, ducks and their babies in summer to see, organic vegetable when in season, and pick your own fruit from our peach, apple, damson, goosberry, redberries etc trees. We have free range eggs, and home baked bread, maybe this year Ill make cider. There are 2 games rooms with table tennis, snooker, darts and golf clubs for 5 hole chipping green.
