Sallow Meadow is a large tranquil meadow with private fishing from the banks of the River Yare.

Nestled beside the River on the Norfolk Broads  it is home to a host of wildlife from flocks of wildfowl to the elusive Chinese water deer. The reed fringe is a particularly good habitat for small song birds. This is an area of remarkable natural beauty and protected from development by The Broads Authority, it offers owners both accessibility and solitude.

Fishing can be enjoyed from the private river bank.  The meadow is dotted with pockets of willow and two sides are flanked by thick areas of  mainly of willow and alder. All of this gives plenty of cover and ensures that the meadow has a high level of privacy. Dykes have been cleaned out and help drain the meadow and run around its boundaries.

At the southern end of the meadow a steep bank protects the meadow from the river and owners will have access to an area of private river bank for activities such as fishing and boating.

During the summer months it would be hard to find a better place to picnic or spend some time away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Because this is a special area it is protected as part of The Broads. This does give a new owner the satisfaction of knowing that they will be a guardian of part of our national heritage.

Camping /mooring a boat   You would be able to camp and moor a boat without consent for up to 28 days a year. Further information can be obtained from The Broads Authority. 

Boundary  The boundaries are: the centre of the dyke on the northern boundary, the near edge of the dyke on the eastern and southern boundaries and at the riverside the boundary is the edge of the river.

Access    From the gate by public highway a track suitable for vehicles runs all the way to Sallow Meadow.

Covenant  There is a covenant, click here to read, on the woodland designed to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of this and adjoining woodland.

Please note, none of these woods are suitable for residential development, other uses such as summer camping may well be suitable.
