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.


This is a well equipped, characterful property, perfect for large gatherings of family/friends. We were a multigenerational family and found the property layout worked well for us along with the amazing grounds. The owner was responsive to communication from us which we appreciated and the information provided in the property for guests was considered and useful. I’m sure future guests will love it.

Mrs W,

We booked this property for my dads 60th birthday and it did not disappoint. The location is perfect for a family getaway, the house itself caters above and beyond there were 12 in total including 3 children and we had plenty of space to entertain as well as room to chill out when needed, the tennis court, outdoor space and hot tub kept everyone busy throughout our stay, overall I would highly recommend.

Mrs E,

The Granary exceeded our expectations above and beyond. As a family who has experienced a lot of loss recently, we were desperate to all get together and celebrate something. For my dad's 60th, we all stayed here for a long weekend and it could not have been better. The owner of the property had thought of everything, providing cake and prosecco for our celebrations, as well as their housekeeping team creating a warm, welcoming and exceptionally clean home that we are very grateful for in current times. If you are looking for a place to stay to relax altogether, then this property is perfect for that - as well as being celebration-friendly, with lots of space for communal fun and of course the hot tub! We were so lucky with the weather, but the property is equipped for both ends of the spectrum, and we cannot wait to return. The Granary will become an annual tradition for us now, for sure. Thank you so much to the owner and also to Norfolk Cottages for bringing this property into our family's lives!

Miss B,

A beautiful house with amazing surroundings, house was beautifully decorated and beds were so comfortable. Hottub was a hit every night and gorgeous walks of the countryside. Would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of going here x

Miss W,

Brilliant house. Very well set up. Hot tub and tennis court welcome addition. Nice and Peaceful, would love to go back.

Mrs A,

The property was stunning and had been fantastically renovated, decorated and furnished.

Mr C,

We celebrated a 30th birthday party here. The place is amazing. Whilst it is very big, it still felt very homely. The grounds are very well maintained as well. Pond looks great, which compared to some other cottages we have stayed at, cannot be taken for granted. the private courtyard to sit in is also very cool. highly recommend.

Mr M,
