Norfolk Broads Island For Sale

Post by Miles » April 26th, 2019, 7:33 pm

Here, you can buy a private island on the River Bure for £300,000. The island contains two thatched cottages, with enough mooring for 50 canoes, pedalos and rowing boats.
Could make a wonderful drive in take away for boaters.

Think it was the Telegraph I saw it in, however, I have been told that there was/is a board at the location
Not sure if that helps?
Coltishall Common is the location but I believe that is owned by the University Of Cambridge believe it or not.

After Henry VIII much of the former Monastery lands in Norfolk Was handed over to Cambridge University to support them particularly Kings college which was supported Henrys VI, VII,VIII.
Kings College were collectiing fees / dues / Tithes from houses, till comparitively recently and still own much land let out to farmers. This is probably a hang over from that.

I had a good look at this today as I was magnet fishing.
First the water or moat surrounding the property is ankle height depth.
Second the 'thatched cottages' are in fact boat bit storage sheds.
My only conclusion and this is quite simply one man's opinion is that it would be a great set up for canoe hire but value wise I would be say is probably around £20,000.
