  • "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.

  • "Great cottage and very comfortable bed."

    Only niggle would be that the patio needs cleaning. Appreciate its winter but there is lots of moss and I slipped over when going outside. Need a new comments book also. Apart from that. Great location loved the town so much have booked again for Easter.

    Dear Andrew, Thank you for your lovely comments about your stay at Bridge Cottage and Aylsham. I'm so sorry to hear you slipped over, it has been so wet recently. Thank you for letting me know - will make sure to clean the patio. I forgot to take the new guest book but it will be there for next time! all best wishes, Melanie Property Owner

  • "We thought the cottage was lovely and very clean however we were disappointed in the “welcome pack”’which only contained 6 eggs, a cake, bottle of milk and some raspberries!"

    Parking was an issue but we expected that. However on Monday morning (departure day) we were woken up at 6.45pm by workman digging up right outside of cottage! Surely the owner or yourselves would have been made aware of this work and I think we should have been pre warned!! It was noisy and very disruptive with workman right outside drilling and when it came to packing up our car to return home there was absolutely no where for us to park as access to and from cottage was obscured and there were bollards and traffic lights outside! I appreciate work needs doing but I feel it’s Sykes responsibility to advise holiday tenants accordingly of this disruption!

    Dear Anne-Lise, Please accept my very sincere apologies about all the noise and inconvenience on the morning of your departure - this was a genuine mistake, the builders had been instructed not to start any work until after the departure time of 10am and we were not expecting the traffic lights etc.! The work was brick repairs to the front wall of the cottage and its neighbour. Sykes are not at fault and were not aware of the disruption, since we were not expecting to have any. The cottage was blocked out for booking for that week to ensure there was minimum disturbance to guests. Again, please accept my apologies - I'm so sorry we failed with the carefully made plans. I'm sorry you were disappointed with the welcome pack, there are no rules and we always like leave more than the recommended milk and a cake./biscuits and choose local products, such as the eggs and the locally grown raspberries. Apart from the above, I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay at Bridge Cottage. Property Owner

  • "Bridge cottage was clean comfortable and in a good location."

    A short walk into town with several restaurants and excellent bakery and butchers. A great walk off road to Blickling Hall. A bus into Norwich. Outside courtyard was lovely to enjoy a cuppa or glass of wine.

    Dear Elizabeth, Thank you so much for your feedback, I’m so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Bridge Cottage. All best wishes, Melanie Property Owner

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.
