Aylsham Self-Catering Holiday Cottages

A popular, unspoilt market town within north Norfolk

Check Availability

Aylsham is a beautifully traditional North Norfolk market town located on the River Bure, just 10 miles from the North Norfolk coast such as Cromer and Sheringham, 7 miles to The Norfolk Broads and 12 miles to Norwich city centre. It is a town which is increasingly becoming known for its food, independent shopping and beautiful tearooms. Enjoy traditional market days where you can source local produce and gifts from artisans, explore its historic buildings and 14th-century church and unwind in the local surroundings which make Aylsham unique, easily accessible via Marriotts Way (which is a 26-mile footpath, bridleway and cycle route which passes through Aysham).

Perfect for: Those looking to navigate both rural Norfolk, Norfolk coast and The Norfolk Broads. A great location to stay if you’re looking for a varied holiday.

Don’t miss: Blickling Hall. Blicking Hall is an incredible stately home just a mile outside of Aylsham and was once home to Anne Boleyn. A day trip to view the home, the gardens and the long walks around the estate is a must. Bring a picnic and make a day out of it.

Our favourite places: Aylsham is home to both Redwings Horse Sanctuary and The Bure Valley Railways which are both popular day trips for residents and tourists alike. Hop aboard Norfolk’s longest narrow gauge steam railway, an 18-mile return run between Aylsham and Wroxham. Great for all ages.

Events: A top tip for events around Aylsham is to keep an eye on what Blickling Hall are offering as they run regular and seasonal events throughout the year. We are big fans of their summer gig performances.

We’re always adding new properties to our holiday home portfolio, take a look at our latest Aylsham holiday homes, The Granary and The Cow Barn, and book your next stay with us today.
