The historic town of Eye has been described by a national newspaper as one of the top 100 Glories of Secret Britain. It is blessed with an array of shops and businesses enabling residents to be essentially self sufficient. With schools, both Nursery, Primary and High, a Health Centre and varied social and recreational opportunities, all age groups are catered for. The town includes an historic mix of architecture and interesting buildings especially when one considers the impressive properties towards the fine, historic Church. With a tower of 101 feet, the renowned Nicklaus Pevsner in The Buildings of England (Suffolk) describes it as "one of the wonders of Suffolk". Orchard Close can be driven too from Lowgate Street or walked to by the road or indeed by crossing the Town Moors from Magdalen Street. The property faces west so enjoys a sunny aspect. It is a proverbial stone's throw from town centre facilities as well as the open countryside and footpaths across fields. The excellent shops include for example the friendly 'institution' The Handyman Stores, two butchers, bakers, a fine deli, two supermarkets and chemist, complementing those found at neighbouring Diss (approximately 5 miles). Diss is fortunate in being able to offer amongst other things an 18 Hole Golf Course and importantly a well used commuter rail service which runs between the Cathedral City of Norwich to the north and London's Liverpool Street Station.
