Jenni’s Cottage enjoys a quiet position that belies the fact it is just a few steps from the sought after, bustling market town centre of Aylsham, which has lots of great places to shop, eat and drink. Aylsham itself was famed for its linen and canvas industry during the 14th century and then later on became renowned for its weaving of woollen and worstead cloths. Still standing proudly near to the market place is the flint-faced church of St Michael, a fine example of Gothic architecture of the Decorated style. Within its 14th-century tower there is a ring of ten bells, considered one of the finest rings in the county. The prominence of the town was due largely to its close proximity to the very large estates and grand country houses of Blickling, Felbrigg, Mannington and Wolterton, which are popular tourist attractions to this day and are easily accessible from Aylsham. Humphry Repton, the famous English landscape gardener, lived in a country estate at Sustead, and is now buried in the churchyard of St Michael’s church in Aylsham.
While little is known about the full history of Jenni’s Cottage, its size suggests that it was of some importance at the time it was built in the early 18th century. Its impossible not to fall in love with this pretty cottage which boasts a multi-fuel burner, a private courtyard garden and two shower rooms. Jenni’s Cottage has a warm, welcoming feel from the moment you step inside and it has been decorated and furnished thoughtfully by the owner to give it a light and airy feel.
Aylsham itself has lots to offer holidaymakers, including the Bure Valley Railway which winds through North Norfolk countryside, taking you to the gateway to the beautiful Broads, Wroxham. Here you can join an organised boat trip or even charter your own day launch and literally watch the world drift by. You can also be at the coast in under 20 minutes, so make time to visit Cromer with its wide sandy beach, Edwardian seafront and much photographed pier.
Head to Sheringham and enjoy Sheringham Park with over 1,000 acres to explore, and the famous North Norfolk Railways. All along this coastline you will find pretty seaside towns and villages with various coastal habitats including sand and shingle beaches, sand dunes, sand marshes and quays.
History buffs will be pleased to hear that the Blickling Estate is very close by and this former home of Anne Boleyn is well worth a visit as the estate is simply breathtaking. You should also visit Norwich, just 15 minutes away, and explore the splendid Norman castle and numerous museums and galleries. All in all, Jenni’s Cottage is the perfect retreat for those wishing to explore the area by day and then venture out to eat and drink in the evenings. And, once visited, this cottage is sure to become a favourite that you will return to time and time again. Beach 12 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 200 yards
