We had a very relaxing few days at the cottage, it has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Loved the iPod docks. We hadn’t been to Norfolk before so enjoyed exploring Cromer, Sheringham and Wells and all the beautiful villages along the coast road. We hope to come back in the summer for a gin & tonic in the cute courtyard. - January 2016
Aylsham and nearby
It’s an easy stroll to the market place of Aylsham, with all amenities including independent shops and supermarkets, tea rooms and gastro pub, not forgetting the jolly monthly farmer’s market complete with jazz band.
Aylsham is an attractive, thriving and historic market town situated in the Bure Valley in the heart of the Norfolk countryside, yet only a few miles from the coast at Cromer. Home to the Bure Valley Steam Railway and only a couple of miles from the National Trust’s ‘jewel in the crown’, Blickling Hall, a magnificent Jacobean house, garden and parkland, with events throughout the year.
Marriott's Way is a super off-road cycle and walking path, which follows the old railway line on the edge of the town.
This is an ideal base for your holiday, perfectly situated to explore hidden Norfolk villages, shop in the nearby fashionable Georgian town of Holt, hire a boat on the Norfolk Broads, eat fish & chips on Cromer Pier or take a seal trip from Morston along the Norfolk coast.
