My flat is at the top of a 1920s ex-local block in a quiet close. It's 15 minutes walk to the centre of Norwich, and has good access to UEA. There are some great local pubs and shops nearby and there's some shared outside space. The area leading to the close isn't the prettiest but it's characterful and friendly and I've always felt safe walking home at night. I live in the flat the rest of the time so my possessions will be here, although I make space when it's a longer let than a few days.
