A thatched period home set in six acres has come up for rent in the Norfolk Broads village of Ranworth.

The five-bedroom property, which could also include an adjoining self-contained annexe, is available to let unfurnished for £2,500 per month.

Starkings & Watson, letting the home, say it would be ideal for nature-lovers, as it offers "the most amazing surroundings", with over six acres of managed gardens, including an arboretum, and views over Ranworth Broad. 

The property is approached by a sweeping tree-lined drive and full of character, with internal accommodation centred around a reception hall, which leads on to three formal reception rooms.
