Description

In a tranquil countryside setting, The Signal Box is a truly unique holiday experience. Formerly the main signal box at Wymondham station and dating back to 1900, the building was moved to its present location in 2000 and has been converted into a stunning holiday home by the current owners. The upper floor accommodation has windows on 3 sides, affording great views of the surrounding landscape, gardens and ponds, giving wonderful opportunities to spot the local wildlife whilst having breakfast. The Signal Box sits in the grounds of the owners' home with other attractive farm buildings nearby, giving a hint of the rural life of times past. Directly beside the local public footpath and with dogs accepted, walk into the countryside and leave all your cares behind for a tangible escape from reality! Shop: 2 miles Pub: 4 miles
