The pretty river­side vil­lage of Coltishall, com­monly re­ferred to as ‘The Gate­way to the Nor­folk Broads’, is one of the most pop­u­lar lo­ca­tions for buy­ers look­ing to move or stay within the Broads Na­tional Park.

For over two cen­turies Coltishall was a thriv­ing commercial cen­tre for the malt­ing in­dus­try and an im­por­tant stop­ping point on the Ayl­sham to Great Yar­mouth route along the River Bure, which is re­flected through­out the vil­lage with some mag­nif­i­cent build­ings. In its day Coltishall had its own ship build­ing yard where many of the river’s wher­ries were built.

Dur­ing the late 19th cen­tury the vil­lage also had four black­smiths, along­side shoe­mak­ers, thatch­ers, bas­ket mak­ers, wheel­wrights, malt shovel mak­ers and har­ness­mak­ers. Nine pub­lic houses, a cottage hos­pi­tal, four churches and even a vol­un­teer fire brigade served the bustling com­mu­nity where a cat­tle mar­ket was held once a week beside the then rail­way sta­tion.

Set­tings such as the iconic river­side com­mon with its fashionabl­e eater­ies, often play host to those wish­ing to re­lax and un­wind by the water’s edge and to watch the wildlife and pass­ing boats as they pass.

Less than 30 min­utes from Nor­wich city cen­tre or the renowned north Nor­folk coast­line, Coltishall is an idyl­lic place to es­cape to the coun­try.

Sto­bart & Hur­rell are also very proud fans of Broad­land’s fastest grow­ing fe­male foot­ball club – The Bure Val­ley Wild­cats.

If you are think­ing of mak­ing a move, or know some­one who is, Sto­bart & Hur­rell would love to hear from you.

An ex­am­ple of the type of prop­er­ties avail­able in Coltishall in­cludes The Mal­lards – A three­storey water­side home with a bal­cony over­look­ing its own staithe, jetty and moor­ing, sold for £375,000
