A characterful terraced cottage offering period-style accommodation for six guests with some unusual original features, located in the Norfolk market town of Aylsham.

Close to the heart of Aylsham you'll find a true gem: the Half Moon Inn. A former 16th century inn and bakehouse, it's been lovingly restored and renovated to retain many original features, including the bread oven and feature beams throughout. Fittings and furnishings stylishly blend new with old to give a true country cottage feel, while being spacious enough for a family or group of six. For larger groups though, rent the property alongside Harvest Moon and Moonbeam, which together will house 12-14 guests.


Aylsham is a unique Norfolk town, with its market place owned by the National Trust. Two weekly markets are held here, which draw in locals and visitors alike, while there are plenty of shops, pubs and tea rooms for you to explore.


The city of Norwich is just 14 miles south, where you can sightsee by day and enjoy the many restaurants and bars at night. For days out with the children though, head to one of the area's breathtaking beaches; Cromer is 12 miles north and is a hit with families looking for a traditional seaside escape. Explore museums, make sandcastles on the beach, or even try surfing in the North Sea waters.

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
