  • Mr Tesseyman

    “Found the owners to be friendly and helpful.”

    Inside is clean and well maintained. Outside the Garden is shared with the communal entrance and if your lucky you may get a visit from one of the local mole's who like to pop up in the garden Great location for walking, with or without dogs Local amenities are not to far and within easy access Overall enjoyed our mini break and would like to return to explore the surrounding area further. Thanks.

Botany Bay Farm Barns

Aylsham 3 miles. These two superb converted barns offer spacious accommodation, rich in character, set in the owners’ grounds, in a semi-rural location close to the pretty market town of Aylsham. The cottages are ideal for anyone wishing to discover the Norfolk countryside as they have the advantage of being centrally positioned for the coast, city and the world-famous Norfolk Broads. The barns are finished to a high standard with many original features such as exposed beams, brickwork and woodburning stoves, perfect for friends, families and romantic breaks away. Locally in the well-serviced market town of Aylsham you will find a good selection of shops, regular markets and weekly auctions. From the properties you can access Marsham and Cawston heaths where an abundance of paths and woodland walks span this beautiful heathland area, a Site of Special Scientific Interest which attracts a variety of wildlife including deer, wild ponies, badgers and barn owls, as well as some endangered species such as Nightjars and the Blue Studded Butterfly. The barns are only ten minutes’ drive from two stunning National Trust properties, Blickling Hall and Felbrigg Hall, and within an hour you can be at Holkham, Sandringham and the popular town of Holt. Two wonderful family holiday cottages for a country break, any time of the year.
