New homes in Downham Market, offering a great lifestyle in Norfolk.
If you’re looking for a new home in northwest Norfolk, The Willows at Downham Market offers a range of stunning one, two, three, four and five-bedroom homes.
Set on the outskirts of the town, The Willows enjoys easy access to both the town centre and scenic open countryside. Downham Market has been a focal point for rural Norfolk for centuries, and the picturesque Market Square keeps the tradition going with its thriving open-air markets on Fridays and Saturdays. The history of this charming town is balanced with handy amenities, with shops, schools and essential services providing everything you could need for day-to-day life.
With the added benefit of main roads providing travel across the region, Downham Market could be your ideal place to call home, whether you’re a first-time buyer, a family seeking more space or downsizing.
Downham Market sits right next to the A10. It’s one of the county’s main routes, bypassing the town rather than taking traffic through it. It’s the link between King’s Lynn on the coast, all the way down to Greater London and the M25. King’s Lynn is 11 miles away. Cambridge is 35 miles down the A10. Peterborough is also within commuting distance. There’s a local train station too, with services to London Kings Cross taking less than 2 hours.
Downham Market has a good range of local shops, pubs, restaurants, and takeaways, in Market Square, High Street, and Bridge Street. A Tesco Superstore, Morrisons, and The Bridge Street Surgery are each just over a mile from The Willows. The Alive Downham Leisure Centre is also just over a mile from The Willows. Hillcrest Academy and Nelson Academy are the two primary schools, and for secondary education, Downham Market Academy also has a sixth form.
The River Great Ouse is the town’s natural landmark – with lovely riverside walks along its banks. The Memorial Park is just down the road, and the green space of the Willows Nature Reserve is near the river. It’s really easy to head for the north Norfolk coast from here – a treat of long sandy beaches and pretty seaside villages. 30 minutes inland, on the Norfolk-Suffolk border, the vast Thetford Forest is one big adventure.
