There are a number of schools in the area to suit all ages, a range of amenities including a post office, bus station and train station, both of which run regular services to Norwich.

The Clyffe house originally dates back and was built by a railway contractor in the 19th century in the year of 1848, formally classed as a 'villa in the Victorian Elizabethan style. Positioned on just over 5 acres of land overlooking picturesque country and seaside views. The elaborately gabled house was of Suffolk brick and Caen stone which is still in place today. The property was first sold in 1860 and then sold for the second time shortly after in 1869, where the Coleman's (mustard) family took ownership into their hands and opened a very key part in Corton's history. During 1874 the property was re-named 'The Clyffe' after undergoing some enlargement where a large North service wing and tower was added. Over the next 20 years The Coleman's family become in acquisition of more land, eventually owning most of the village. The whole of the Colman estate in Corton was sold off over the years, by 1917 contents of the house had to be sold and the house was partially demolished, since then the property and surrounding land had been taken into new ownership and kept within the family until this current day.
