Orchard Croft is our new development in the historic market town of Diss on the south Norfolk borders. Set within beautiful countryside, the town offers an extensive range of day-to-day amenities and facilities with the benefit of a mainline train station which has regular, direct services to London, Liverpool Street and Norwich.
With a market hosted at the town’s centre for well over 500 years, Diss has every right to call itself a market town. And it’s certainly picturesque. Living in Diss means you’ll be in the heart of the beautiful Waveney Valley and be able to enjoy walks around the Mere, one of the deepest natural inland lakes in the country. Covering over 6 acres, the Mere was once believed to be the crater of an extinct volcano, and is the perfect place to enjoy a Sunday afternoon stroll or a picnic on a summer’s day.
You can also enjoy a stroll through the town centre, embarking on a journey through its old courtyards and winding streets. Discover centuries of history with excellent examples of Tudor, Georgian and Edwardian architecture and the stunning Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin. Sitting slightly above the town, the church can be seen from miles around and has stood on its current site since 1290.
With the hustle and bustle of daily life becoming ever more stressful, Diss is now proud to be part of the Cittaslow, or ‘Slow City’ project. Undertaking a pledge to embark upon a continuous process of self-improvement, Cittaslow is a growing international network of towns where quality of life is important.
