    “Beautiful cottage, clean and well equipped.”

    Loved the welcome pack,especially the locally made goodies. A nice walk to Blickling Hall. Would recommend the butchers and bakers in the town. Hope to come back soon.

The property

Bridge Cottage, a traditional red-brick former mill worker’s cottage in charming Aylsham, a pretty market town in the heart of the Norfolk countryside. Mixing both characterful and contemporary features throughout, Bridge Cottage offers a well-positioned base, nestled near a hub of amenities, attractions and a short car/bus journey from the Norfolk Coast AONB. With roadside parking nearby, unload your belongings before settling in to your welcoming new home. Be greeted into the charming sitting room with beams overhead and an original fireplace, encompassing a lovely gas stove, perfect for lighting on those cooler evenings. Venture into the fully-equipped kitchen/diner, flooded with natural light through the rear French doors, where you can prepare meals to be enjoyed indoors, or alfresco in the enclosed garden; dotted with pretty blooms, to make use of your outdoor space. Head upstairs to catch some rest from either the king-size or double bedroom, awakening to explore this delightful part of Norfolk. It’s an easy stroll to the thriving Market Place, with a wealth of independent shops, bakery, tea rooms, pubs, cocktail bar, supermarkets and a monthly farmer's market; all the necessities can be found in the town itself. National Trust properties are close by, where you can enjoy a tour of the house & grounds of magnificent Blickling Hall, or head to Felbrigg Hall, Gardens & Estate, whilst outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the abundance of walking and cycling opportunities from the door and across the area of the nearby Norfolk Broads. With Cromer's seafront only a 20-minute journey away, be sure to stop off at Cromer Pier, the Amazona Zoo and Cromer Museum, perfect for all of the family to enjoy, finishing off a day trip with fish & chips or Cromer crab. Catch the narrow-gauge steam train from Aylsham to Wroxham and combine it with a boat trip on the Broads, or for a day of history, shopping and character, head into Norwich to explore the colourful Market, the Castle Museum, Norwich Cathedral and the many independent shops of The Lanes. With all of this available, book Bridge Cottage for your next Norfolk escape.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
