The historic market town of Aylsham is set on the river Bure and is a pretty area in which to rent a holiday cottage in Norfolk. Close to several main attractions of the county, the town itself is very attractive, with 18th century houses, historic and welcoming pubs, a 14th century church and quaint tea rooms, and it makes for a great base in which to rent a cottage to explore the rest of Norfolk.
Close to Aylsham is the Jacobean house and gardens of Blickling Hall, which is a stunning National Trust property to explore with friends and family. Other grand country houses such as Felbrigg and Mannington are also fairly close for day trips from the market town, so if you are interested in history and striking architecture, you won’t be short of places to see.
If you are wanting to discover a beach when on your break, then the sands of Cromer and Sheringham on the northern coast of Norfolk are no more than 30 minutes away by car. Cromer has a traditional pier with a theatre on the end of it – great for taking the kids to, and Sheringham is home to a museum with its collection of old lifeboats.
There are plenty of holiday cottages to choose from in Aylsham, depending on what kind of self-catering break you are looking for. With fully-equipped kitchens, comfortable living areas and cosy bedrooms, your cottage will feel like a home away from home.
If you are coming with your children, then you might want to opt for accommodation with a private garden or even a swimming pool, for that extra special touch. If you are visiting with your furry friend, then there are dog-friendly cottages available to rent, and if you are looking for a romantic break with your partner, you might want to opt for a cottage with character in a quiet part of the town, or one featuring a Jacuzzi bath.
Aylsham is a thriving town with a bustling town centre full of life, yet it is also close to the serene countryside too, great for going on a nearby walk.
