Spacious, welcoming and bursting with original features tastefully combined with homely modern touches, this historic building is a gem of a property in the delightful market town of Aylsham, Norfolk. Just 10 miles from Cromer, it is ideally located for exploring both the wonderful coastline and peaceful Norfolk Broads.
The large property sleeps up to 11 guests across five comfortable bedrooms, each one with its own style and charming features, with space for an additional trundle bed to accommodate an extra guest if required.
Characterful oak beams, exposed brickwork and sloped ceilings create a haven for sleep, while a combination of large double beds, twin beds and a family room offer flexible solutions for an inter-generational holiday or getaway with friends. Two of the bedrooms are en-suite and the others share a beautifully appointed family bathroom with free-standing Victorian bath and separate shower cubicle. The bedrooms are split between the first floor and the second floor, with the ground floor housing the beautifully decorated communal areas.
The kitchen invites you to cook up delicious dishes, with an elegant Aga for winter use as well as an electric oven, hob and everything you’ll need to cater for your party. White-washed walls and an authentic stone floor create a welcoming feel, an atmosphere which is reflected throughout the rest of the ground floor. Enjoy relaxed breakfasts in the morning room in front of the feature fireplace and for evening meals all together, the historic panelled dining room with wooden floor is a comfortable setting, warmed by the wood burner in cooler months. Let the dishwasher take care of the dishes and head to the living room which is a stylish space with open fire, wooden floor and a 54” Freeview TV with DVD player, perfect for cosy evenings in. On warm summer evenings the secluded courtyard invites you to spend time relaxing under the stars.
The lower ground floor is accessed via a steep staircase and offers yet more in the way of entertainment, housing a games room with table tennis, darts, table football and a snooker table. Children will enjoy having their own space down here, while the games are sure to bring out the competitive streak in big kids too!
Outside, the property features an enclosed private lawned garden, perfect for children to let off some steam, while the adults fire up the BBQ in the secluded courtyard adjacent to the kitchen.
