  • "A fantastic cottage with everything you could need."

    Good quality beds and bedding, towels etc. Close to shops, pubs, tearooms. A lovely area to walk around and as a base for exploring Norfolk. Mary

  • "Ted's Place is a very pleasant cottage in peaceful surroundings."

    Very clean and homely, though we found that the lounge was quite dark, which meant that we needed to have the lights on if we wanted to read. Nice spacious kitchen/dining area with good facilities. Bedding and towels were very good quality. Bathroom lovely, spacious, beautiful bath, excellent shower. Only a short walk to the centre of town, with its excellent range of independent shops and two well stocked supermarkets. Would highly recommend the farmers markets for fish, cheeses, meat and breads. Short drive to beautiful Blickling Hall. Would recommend a trip on the Bure Valley steam train. We enjoyed our stay at the cottage very much.

  • "A very comfortable and homely cottage which was exceptionally well equipped and cleaned to a high standard."

    It was a lovely base to explore the surrounding countryside and well located for beach visits and walks. Beautiful garden which unfortunately we didn't use much due to unsettled weather during our stay. Sarah, the property owner was easily contactable,very friendly and promptly responded to our messages. Would thoroughly recommend this property. However care needed when parking on the narrow street outside property to avoid prominent doorsteps. Better to park in next road.

    Only thing to be aware of is that parking is limited in Town Lane and this property in common with most in this lane, doesn't have off-road parking. That said we found a space on the road every day!

  • "We had a fantastic stay at Ted’s Place."

    The hosts were so welcoming and it really felt like they went above and beyond. The welcome Prosecco was a lovely touch and the communication from the hosts over text was great throughout. The cottage itself is really lovely- lots of character with the beams and a lovely bright kitchen with dining table. The sitting room at the front of the house is quite dark during the day but this didn’t bother us as we were out and about, and once the lights were on in the evening it was really cosy. Bathroom is big with a bath and separate shower cubicle that has strong pressure. Overall it was a great base to explore Norfolk and would definitely recommend

  • "Stayed here for 1 week 31st July 2020."

    The cottage is well managed with everything you could need in a home from home, and was immaculately clean and Sarah is managing the covid situation very effectively. The cottage is spacious and decorated to a high standard. The facilities are excellent. The cottage is set down a very quiet one way street, which means you hardly ever hear any traffic as it is not a through route. Parking can be easily found either in the culdesac at the end of the road or at the top of the street, and it's only a walk of 1-2 minutes to the cottage, but you can easily pull up to unload at load on arrival/departure. The garden is mature and a great space to enjoy. The neighbors are really friendly and happily recommended beaches to visit. Aylsham is a fantastic place to stay to relax and unwind whilst still being within easy access of local stores and pubs. The Black Boys Hotel offers fab pub grub and worth a visit, as is the clothing store Amika. Aylsham is 20 minutes drive from Cromer, Sheringham and Mundesley beaches which are all worth a visit. The North Norfolk Steam train line is a great day out and managing the covid situation by allocating cabins to just your party, which worked really well. We are happy to highly recommend Ted's Place and Aylsham and we would definitely stay here again.

  • "We had a fantastic week at Ted's Place in Aylsham - a very comfortable stay for 5 of us (me, my wife, our 6yo son and my wife's parents)."

    The house is a real home-from-home and has everything you need for a self-catering break, including a large garden where we sat and relaxed on the first evening after a 4-hour journey from London in bank holiday traffic (and enjoyed the complimentary bottle of wine that was waiting for us in the fridge!) The only minor niggles, which have already been mentioned by other guests, are the parking and access to the property. The house is located down a narrow one-way lane (blink and you'll miss it when coming into Aylsham for the first time - even if you've researched it on Google streetview beforehand) and parking outside/near the house is first-come, first-served, but if you don't get parked right outside you can usually find somewhere within a minute's walk. However, this was to be expected for the location and was communicated to us by Sarah ahead of time. As other reviewers have mentioned, the house is in an ideal location for exploring Norfolk. We visited Cromer a couple of times, which only took about 15 minutes to get to in the car. The Bure Valley railway that goes to Wroxham (for boat trips on the Broads) is a short walk through the town and we also visited Bewilderwood (again, about 15mins by car) which is a fantastic day out for little ones. Aylsham itself has plenty of cake shops and bakeries and we ate dinner in the Black Boys hotel/pub a couple of times, which was excellent (and the hearty breakfast we had there on our last morning set us all up for the journey home). When we return to Norfolk for another family holiday in the near future we will definitely use Ted's Place again.

  • "What a fantastic property."

    Our every need was catered for - not only was the cottage well stocked with essentials, but the quality of all appliances, furnishings and supplies was top notch. The garden was particularly tranquil and the kids loved it, as well as the great selection of toys, games and books. The location was close to the village shops but also very quiet, and although there was no parking directly outside the property, we were able to pull up outside to load/unload and park a minute's walk away. We really enjoyed our week's holiday and were fortunate that the weather allowed us to visit the amazing beaches at Wells, Cromer and Brancaster - just remember to check tide times!

  • "This is a delightful cottage and we really enjoyed our stay."

    The owner had been staying there during the week previous to our visit and Ted's Place definitely has the feeling of being cherished as somebody's home. The neighbours were friendly and helpful too. The step up from the road to the front door was quite a stride but this wasn't a problem as we used the back door instead which was on the level. I would suggest that visitors bring a torch as the small alley to the back door was very dark at night. Also, if you have parked the car down the lane you will see better as you walk back to the property with the aid of a good torch. Those pitch black night skies in Norfolk are a revelation for stargazers! Aylsham is a super town and well situated for visiting all that North Norfolk has to offer.
