Situation
The village of Norton lies in unspoilt countryside famous for fruit orchards and market gardening. The village contains a village hall, a parish church and public house with many lovely local walks to
choose from. The village lies close to the Blossom Trail named after the many fruit orchards laden with spring blossom. The village has an eclectic mix of architectural styles, some of which date back to the sixteenth century with black and white timbers and thatched roofs. Part of the village forms a conservation area. There is a good choice
of farm shops in the locality which sell local produce. Nearby historic Evesham (3 miles) is centred around the River Avon with a delightful riverside park and picturesque Abbey with shops
catering for day to day requirements including an M&S food outlet and a Tesco store. The larger centres of Worcester, Cheltenham and Stratford-upon-Avon provide a wider range of shopping and
cultural facilities. Birmingham is 28 miles away and offers an excellent selection of stylish stores and restaurants. A farmers' market is held in Evesham's historic Market Square on the fourth
Friday of every month. Evesham is home to many annual events including a fishing contest, a hot-air balloon festival, a regatta and a river festival which features illuminated boats. The Regal Cinema is a restored art deco building which hosts mainstream and arthouse films as well as a broad range of events including lectures and live performances. Founded in 1863, Evesham Rowing Club on the banks of the Avon welcomes social members as well as sports members. Nearby Bretforton holds an asparagus festival at the end of every May in the courtyard of the National Trust owned Fleece

- The garden lying directly to the front of the property is bisected by a shrubbery and an archway of roses providing access to a lawn
containing ornamental trees.

barns and a stone paved terrace which provides an attractive area for outside summer dining.
