Mash's Row is situated on the edge of the ancient market town of Aylsham, a short drive from Norwich, Cromer, the Broads and Norfolk's finest beaches. It is nestled by the river Bure and next to the Weaver's Way, a delight for walkers of all ages.

Recently launched as a holiday let, Mash's Row is a traditional brick and flint cottage built in 1845 by William and Elizabeth Mash for the workers at the mill which is still to be seen from the bridge near the cottage. The cottage has 2 gardens, the front one is spacious with apple trees and a pond, at the back there's a cosy cottage garden with a stream at the end and is a real wind down after a busy day exploring this wonderfully peaceful spot. A kingfisher is nesting in the river and was spotted on the 9th November 2014.

The East Anglia region

Norwich is an important historic City, once second only to London with a Norman Castle and its Anglican Cathedral spire dominating the skyline. It once boasted a pub for everyday and a church for every Sunday of the year and is still a wonderful place to stroll and shop with its own permanent covered daily market. The Broads need no introduction and The Sunday Times states that North Norfolk is a heritage coast and an area of outstanding natural beauty. A chain of nature reserves, many of them run by the National trust stretch from Holme to Blakeney. Lovely at all times of year there is always something to do in Norfolk.

Some lovely things to do:

Walking the Weavers Way from outside the cottage to Blickling Hall (1.5miles) and strolling the Lake and gardens

Taking the steam train from Alysham to Wroxham and a boat on the Broads

Breakfast at Mrs Potts Tea Shoppe in Aylsham

Boat trips from Blakeney to see the seals

Dinner at the Black Boys Hotel in Aylsham market square

Making sandcastles at Wells or Mundesley beach

Fish & Chips at Cromer pier

Taking in the stunning carpet of bluebells that transform Bluebell Wood in Spring

High tea overlooking the marshes of Blakeney

Having a sea view breakfast at the Overstrand cafe

Exploring the galleries and antique shops in Holt

Owl spotting at Blickling Lake

Sampling the crab and smoked fish at Cley and Saltash

Exploring the Norman castle in Norwich

Birdwatching at Cley marshes


Alysham is a bustling market town 11 miles north of Norwich on the A140 to Cromer perfectly situated so you can reach the most popular spots in 20-30 minutes drive.

It is a short walk up to the market square where all usual amenities are situated and with many independent shops to browse in.

There are plenty of cafes and a lovely restaurant in the Black Boys Hotel (which once entertained Samuel Pepys!) and an excellent Indian restaurant. There is also a Fish & Chip shop and Chinese take away.

Aylsham Antiques is a quaint olde world shop selling second hand furniture bric-a brac etc great for bargain hunters!

There are 2 small supermarkets in the town (Co-op and Budgens) and a larger Tescos for stocking up on the way into Aylsham from Norwich.

"Cosy, well-quipped cottage in a great location"

We really enjoyed our stay at Mash's Row. The cottage is very cosy with clean, nicely furnished rooms and it has a well-equipped kitchen. Our kids (7 and 3) loved the bunk beds and appreciated the selection of books and toys on offer. The garden looks like it would be lovely in the summer, though for our late October break we appreciated the ample bedding and toasty central heating more. The location is great: pretty, quiet (we never heard a peep from the neighbours) and well situated for the seaside or the attractions in and around Norwich. The only downsides: no dishwasher or bath, and the downstairs shower room is pretty small -- but for the money it's easy to forgive these shortcomings and we plan to stay again.

"Comfortable and uncomplicated setting in Aylsham"

A beatiful setting with lovely garden. In the cottage is everything you could need even a washing maschine. The owner is very friendly and uncomplicated. I would recommend the cottage and area to anyone.

"A great base in this traditional Norfolk Cottage"

Located in a tranquil area - as soon as we arrived we relaxed in the well equipped cottage. Having the beds made up, towels provided and bread, milk, tea and coffee was a nice touch. During our stay we visited: Sherringham - went crabbing off the rocks and had fish and chips on the beach, we even went in the sea. Mundesley - had a beer in the pub and walked along the beach. Wroxham - watched the boats and more fish and chips. During our stay we also visited the local pubs - very nice and had a bbq in the beautiful cottage garden. We would definitely stay here again.

"Superb!! Would definitely visit again!"

We had a fantastic week at this cottage. It was spotlessly clean and really well equipped. It was lovely arriving and already having bread, milk and household cleaning products in the cottage. Our children thought that it was great to have all the books, games and DVD's that were there. We enjoyed the lovely garden and splashing about in the stream at the end of the garden!We would really recommend anyone wishing to explore this part of Norfolk to stay here because it was so convenient for so many things - beach visits to Cromer, Mundesley and Sheringham, the narrow gauge railway in Aylsham, the stunning Blickley Hall, a boat cruise on the broads and so much more besides!
