We love to provide all our guests with as much information about the house and what to do. We have collected a great selection of what's on guides & tourist leaflets. We also provide a top tips guide to where to eat, where to go and places to see. We hope this is a great help to you. The info file also has lots of info about the house, which is also a great comfort. One thing to note - this house is a house which is purposely designed to cater for the holiday makers and is not where we live. Harvey Lane House is presented to the highest level possible and we are sure you will have an excellent stay.
Harvey Lane House was built in 1931 & is set in a leafy laned area of Thorpe St Andrew, Norwich - which is in an exclusive and highly sought after area of the city. The advantage of choosing to stay here is several fold - tranquillity and peace where 16 species of bird will greet you with their morning song, free parking for 3 cars for your whole stay (a real bonus), high end living with everything you need to cater for your stay, close to the city with only a short bus ride or walk and easy to escape to the surrounding Norfolk attractions which are as little as 30 minutes away (20 miles to the coast) - so you will have it all.
A beautifully and newly decorated/refurbished house built in 1931 and set in the peaceful and leafy suburb of Norwich, with stripped flooring, modern & period features and full gas central heating. Thorpe St Andrew, like the whole of Norwich is known for its safe and peaceful city living style. This place will be a great base to spend your stay (especially if you plan to go further afield to the Norfolk Broads or to see some of the best seaside resorts the UK can offer). Equally - this place will allow you sample the delights of one of the finest UK cities and is only a good walk of just over a mile into the city centre or a 10 minute bus ride.
There is room to park 3 cars for free (if planned well) at the front of the house and more space on the street if you have visitors.
There is 1 large master double bedroom with a sumptuous double antique french bed with a large wardrobe, 2 bed sides, large dressing mirror and a chest of draws. The second double room has a double bed (the option here is that we can change this room by adding an extra single put me up style bed or airbed so that 3 people (usualy children - please let us know on booking if this is what you need) and there is one smaller single bedroom with a single bed, large chest of drawers and a bedside table. All rooms have original stripped and varnished wooden pine floors. There is also a comfy double sofa bed option for the 7/8th guest in the living room for larger groups and families.
All fresh fluffy towels and cotton linens are provided and the house will be presented in pristine clean condition.
The living room has a large flat screen TV with a great selection of 60+ Sky channels, fast unlimited Sky broadband wifi and a DVD player for those moments where a good film is needed. This'll be a great place for you put your feet up whilst enjoying a well-deserved glass of your favourite tipple.
The large kitchen diner will cater for all your needs with a large dining table and a brand new kitchen with all the mod cons - this has become a favourite place to spend time for many of our guests - sharing a story, playing one of the many vintage board games provided (scrabble, Pictionary, monopoly, cards and more). The double French doors open onto a large courtyard area, which is decked with patio furniture and chairs for those warmer summer days.
All the basics like tea, coffee, salt/pepper/herbs oils etc etc are provided for your stay.
The separate utility room area has a washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, fridge and a freezer.
The bathroom has a separate large free-standing bath, separate double shower cubicle and is also newly refurbished (like the whole house) to a very high standard.
We are very confident that Harvey Lane House will deliver on all fronts as you enjoy and explore the splendours of Norwich and afar. Our previous lovely guests have written lots of reviews in the visitors book so it’s always nice to see how much they’ve enjoyed this wonderful house.
Situated in the leafy and relaxing suburbs of Thorpe St Andrew - a very popular area of Norwich city. 500 yrds up the road are a great selection of shops for your self catering needs. The bus route into the city is 50 yards from the house and the journey no more than 10 minutes. If you prefer to walk then there is a picturesque 30 minute walk into the city from the house. We are confident your stay will a relaxing one but one where you will be able to dip into all the action as and when you desire.
There is a great park only 2 minutes away and some great walks to nearby pubs and resaturants down on the river (which is only 5 or so minutes walk away). A great selection of foody pubs can be found only 10 minutes away and are found on the River Yare - The Rushcutters, The River Garden and Townhouse not to mention some great ale pubs - The Fat Cat Canary, The Jubilee and the amazing Coach and Horses pubs not too far away.
Norwich has a wealth of things to do and to see. Medieval Norwich is one of the most spectacular cities in the UK with it's 900+ year old Cathedral and castle, a wealth of beautiful buildings and cobbled streets not to mention the great museums and art houses.
Norwich gets voted one of the best shopping experiences in the UK time and time again - we are certain you will not be left disappointed. With huge areas of pedestrianisation, 2 large shopping malls, all the usual excellent high end shopping brands with a huge selection of independent shops.
We also have a huge selection of excellent local and national restaurants, great gastro pubs and a super night life with several cinemas, some excellent live theatres and live gig venues - these really is nothing left you will need.
We are confident our house will offer you value for money and will be an ideal base for you to explore the wonderful city of Norwich and to also quickly explore further afield - the nest of both worlds. Let's face it - who want to be stuck out in the middle of nowhere when you can be near to the action a city can offer but within 30 or so minutes from the coast and all it has to offer.
All the very best
