With a garden and a tennis court, Sankence lodge features free WiFi and is situated in Aylsham, 4.4 km from Blickling Hall. This is a lovely place to stay: the rooms were very comfortable and breakfast was excellent. Jenny was so helpful with suggestions for where to visit. An ideal location for our stay. We will certainly stay here when we are next in the area, and we cannot recommend it too highly.
Tinsmiths House is situated in Aylsham, 2.4 km from Blickling Hall. Some units include a seating area for your convenience. Some rooms feature views of the garden or town. The whole stay was fantastic from start to finish: I've stayed in quite a few B&Bs over the years and never had quite such welcoming and attentive hosts. The property is decorated beautifully; the breakfasts, made using really high-quality ingredients, were delicious; and I loved the peace & quiet of the location. A dead cert for a return visit!
A compact pretty little town, easy to walk around. Aylsham is a reasonable base for exploring the area around that part of Norfolk. The pubs were not that interesting and if you wanted real ale, you had to drive somewhere else. You also need to drive somewhere else for interesting walking with good views
Didn't really have a chance to make a proper judgement as just staying in Aylsham for one night but thought surrounding areas were beautiful. We went to the coast and enjoyed the beaches. Disappointed with the food and service in one of the local pubs where we'd reserved a table but there were other restaurants which we intend to try next time we come.
Visited North Norfolk for many years except last year. Aylsham retains a lot of its character as a market town. My late mother in law was in the Land Army and often drank at the pub in the square. It's also we'll located for East Ruston Gardens and the Broads.
Aylsham has a really good feel about it! I was there for family reasons, and I found it relaxing, interesting and a lovely place to be. As my mobility is somewhat limited, I did not find it too hard to get around without transport, and found the Church, Heritage Centre and Market Place easily accessible especially as they were all in close proximity.
The facilities provided for my dog were absolutely first class. When she left, she thought she ought to take the bed with her it was so comfortable. They also provided treats which would have been more welcome had she been allowed to have many but . . . she is on a very strict diet. It was a truly dog friendly hotel and I would certainly go back if in that neck of the woods.
Aylsham is a lovely Norfolk market town. The old compliments the new with housing currently being constructed in the area. We were visiting family and friends to celebrate a special occasion and they all live in Aylsham so our accommodation was well placed. We had a lovely Sunday lunch in The Black Boys pub in the market square and an evening meal in The Plough which is just outside of Aylsham. Both were very good with a wide choice of food. The staff at both establishments were very efficient and friendly. Five of our party were staying in The Plough and one of them said it was the most comfortable bed he had even slept in. The accommodation at The Black Boys looks really good so hopefully when we go back again next year for a wedding we will be able to book in there. The worst part - having to travel back to Bristol on the M25, it is what nightmares are made of.

Jen (and Bumble the Border terrier) were so very welcoming and made our stay a lovely experience. An attractive and comfortable bedroom, friendly chatter and excellent breakfasts have left a memorable impression on us. We would definitely return here to stay when next visiting in Norfolk.

The hosts were extremely welcoming and helpful, and made us feel very comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious. The house is lovely - decorated beautifully. It is very well situated - a few minutes walk from the centre of Aylsham.
