Description   Water Deer Wood is a fantastic example of unspoilt wet-woodland with great wildlife value and access to a secluded inlet off the river Yare. Its peaceful setting, on the banks of the river, belies its convenient proximity to Norwich, which can be reached within fifteen minutes.

It offers a unique opportunity to own your own piece of the Broads and has a small picturesque stretch of south-facing river frontage, as well as having access from Ferry Lane.

Water Deer Wood has been named after the Chinese Water Deer which frequent the wood.  The Broads is a national park details can be seen HERE.

Fishing and Boating   This is a perfect location for keeping canoes for exploring the river, mooring of anything larger would require permission from the Broads Authority. For those keen on fishing the riverbank is a perfect spot. River Yare fishing details can be seen HERE

The river Yare is tidal and highs and lows can be seen HERE

When viewing please take care, and wear wellies. There is a path through the wood to the river's edge and the inlet.

Access   There is a right of way from the metal gate into the wood, with a right to park.

Please note:  the canoes are not included in the sale
