This cottage is located in the market town of Aylsham, an attractive town of cobbled streets and narrow alleys offering an interesting array of shops and a twice-weekly market. To the north of the town, the resort of Cromer is a perfect example of the quintessential English seaside town with a sandy beach, a pier with traditional entertainment, and an excellent range of independent cafes, restaurants, and bistros many of which allow diners to enjoy fresh local seafood. Alternatively, visitors may like to try their hand at catching their own crabs off the pier, a fun activity for all ages. To the south of the cottage, meanwhile, the city of Norwich is just 12 miles away, whilst the peaceful waters of the Norfolk Broads can be reached with ease by car.
