About the neighbourhood
The farm is situated in the heart of Norfolk, near the pretty and vibrant market town of Aylsham. The Norfolk broads are around a 15 minute drive-away and a range of beaches can be reached within 30-40 minutes. The historic city of Norwich is also only a 30 minute drive away.
Getting around
We have fitted an electric car charging point at North Farm for the convenience of those guests with either a fully electric or hybrid car. Whilst many users of the cottages do come in their cars as they are situated in an extremely rural location, if you would like to come by bike and so reduce their carbon footprint, we would encourage you. We are around 4 miles from the nearest station at North Walsham. The North Walsham train departs from Norwich and generally has room for bicycles without the need to book in advance. If you do choose to come by train, we can organise a taxi to collect you from the station. Groceries can be delivered to the cottages from all the major supermarkets via online ordering.
