Aylsham Area

holkham 1 bay

Our Norfolk holiday windmill is situated on the outskirts of the historic market town of Aylsham. The town is the centre of a rural community of scattered farms and villages set in beautiful rolling countryside.  Only 10 miles from the city of Norwich, Wroxham and the Broads, and the coast at Cromer, it is the ideal base from which to explore North Norfolk, Broadland and the miles of beautiful sandy beaches.

Aylsham is home to the Bure Valley steam railway (www.bvrw.co.uk)  which runs 10 miles to Wroxham. It is also close to the National Trust properties Blickling Hall,  Felbrigg Hall and Sheringham Park. There are good shopping facilities in Aylsham, also pubs, restaurants and take aways. The nearest pub is a 7 minute walk away.

The mill is only 100 yards from Marriott’s Way cycle trail. Weavers’ Way, and the Norfolk Coast path are both nearby, plus of course many marked local walks. There are numerous Nature Reserves in North Norfolk which are a haven for birdwatchers.
