What can guests enjoy when staying in the Aylsham area?
The historic town of Aylsham is remarkably well placed to discover different areas and aspects of Norfolk. 10 miles from the city of Norwich, with its lovely lanes, museums, castle, cathedral and plenty more. 10 miles from the coast at Cromer, the traditional seaside town. A little further the delights of the North coast, at Blakeney and Wells, and the iconic Holkham beach. The Norfolk Broads are about 40 mins away, with so much to see and do from canoeing, day boating, or birdwatching at one of the many reserves. National Trusts' Blickling and Felbrigg Halls are very close to Aylsham. Walking and cycling is a pleasure on our 'quiet lanes' or the off road Marriott's and weavers' Way trails.
Where can guests enjoy food and drink?
Aylsham itself has several lovely cafes for lunches and teas.
Evening meals can be enjoyed in the central market square at the Black Boys Hotel, or the Gate of India. There are also fish and chips, chinese and kebab takeaways.
There are several good hotels and pubs veryclose to Aylsham, the Plough Inn, the Marsham Arms and the Forge to name a few and many of the surrounding villages have excellent pubs too. Norwich has many excellent eateries of course.
