Aslacton is a small, south Norfolk, rural hamlet set in lush countryside and farmland. Peaceful and quiet and a world away from the everyday rush of life, it offers lovely walking and cycling country under the huge skies Norfolk is so famous for. The bustling market town of Diss is 20 minutes away and offers golf, fishing lakes and swimming. If some of your party are coming by train there is also a mainline station in the town. If you want to fly free as a bird take yourself off to Tibenham Gliding Club for a trial flight or lesson, only half a mile away but another world away in terms of an experience! The city of Norwich is a half hour drive for culture, cafes, fine dining and retail therapy – make a day of it and go to the cinema before coming home. The charming town of Bungay on the Norfolk/Suffolk borders is worth a visit with the Earsham Street end of the town showcasing good delicatessens, antique haunts and a great café with a pretty garden to eat out in when the weather allows. The Broads are less than 45 minutes away and make another lovely day out with over 125 miles of waterway networks to explore and if the coast beckons you can be there in an hour – the beaches on the east coast are sandy, spectacular and often underpopulated even in the summer.

Reviews

The property was exceptional, comfortable, spacious and to a very high standard. We were a party of 10 and all loved it. The outside area was beautiful, we enjoyed the walks, tennis, hot tub and sitting by the pond. The isolation and peacefulness was wonderful. Miss Lydia Tubero - 1st November 2018
