Bungay Property and Houses for Sale and to Rent


Bungay Local Area Guide

If you are considering buying or renting a property in Bungay, you are choosing one of the most attractive locations in the Waveney Valley. With its wealth of historic sites and beautiful views over the distant water meadows that are often flooded in the Winter months, the town really has a distinctive character.

Only 20 miles from Norwich, one of England’s finest cities, and a mere 15 miles from the beautiful coastal town of Southwold, Bungay is well placed for most, whether it be business or leisure. The town and surrounding areas attract a host of visitors in the holiday season with the entrance to the Norfolk Broads a few miles away. Patrons explore the old Norman Castle, the Roman Well and the Saxon Church, and there are a number of watering holes and chic restaurants in the town center for when the legs get weary.

The local residents enjoy a number of sports clubs, specifically the local football club with its new pavilion and hosts of the cricket team and tennis club. Big emphasis on the younger residents is always on display, with numerous under 16 boys and girls football teams regularly in action. There is the Black Dog running club who organize the annual Bungay Marathon attracting runners from afar, and the well supported bowls club at the other end of town. Bungay & Waveney Valley Golf club lies to the outskirts of the town and is a challenging par 69 with both tree lined fairways and open heathland holes. Established in 1889, the course has the added advantage of being playable year round due to the natural sandy soil and excellent drainage. It also has a wonderful clubhouse available for private functions.

For those who prefer a little more culture, The Fisher Theatre on Broad Street has gone from strength to strength in recent years, thanks to the effort of Jason Collins the Theatre Director and his superb staff. Run these days as a charitable organization, the Fisher is one of the oldest provincial theatres in the country and was brought back to its original use in 2006 when it was re-opened. It is difficult now to imagine life in the area without the vibrant Fisher theatre. It’s at the heart of the community, providing an unusually broad programme of arts events, and has won a number of awards. The high-tech design features impress audience and performers alike, and yet the Georgian heritage is preserved and cherished.
