The Stables is a wonderful mid-19th Century brick and flint cottage in a classic setting, overlooking the village green and cricket pitch, with a pub just a few strides away. There is also a good village shop & post office and a children's play area on the far side of the green, making the property perfect for a couples or family holiday. Completely refurbished, the owners have created a gorgeous retreat with character and comfort in mind. One of the delights of the cottage, is the garden, which is a sun trap and has a summer house and a small arbour seat, just the spot to read that book you've been meaning to catch up on. Mainly on one level, with one or two internal steps here and there, comfortable beds, cosy sofas and a lovely open plan dining/kitchen space are waiting to welcome you in. There is a wood burner in the living room and in the summer, sit on the front bench and watch the local teams put willow bat to ball. A true escape, a stay at The Stables brings you tranquil village life, with the hubbub of the coast and the sandy beaches of Cromer and Overstrand less than 20 minutes away.

Aldborough is a gem to discover. The approach from any direction is through high­ hedged country lanes that shelter the route in. As you come to the centre, you will see a huge village green nestled under big Norfolk skies; it is a captivating sight. There is an excellent children's play area, a good village pub that does take away meals and an eclectic village shop & post office for everyday needs. The area is great for cycling and walking, the Weavers Way passes through the village and the coast at Cromer, with its iconic Pier and sandy Blue Flag beach, is less than a 20-minute drive away. There is golf, the Amazona Zoo and a surf school here too, if you want to learn a new skill. The National Trust houses and parks at Felbrigg and Blickling are a fun day out, and the lovely Georgian town of Holt with its numerous independent shops, great food hall, cafe culture, antique shops and art galleries is a spot not to miss. It is also the gateway to the north Norfolk coastline much of which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are some pretty, coastal villages to discover. Cley-next-the-Sea with its famous windmill, Blakeney with its marshes, quayside and seal trips and the charm of Wells-next-the-Sea are just a few you should visit during your stay in this idyllic part of Norfolk.


We have just spent two weeks in The Stables and what a fantastic property it is! Furnished to an exceptionally high standard with everything you could possible need for a holiday. The location is stunning overlooking the village green and cricket pitch, and only a short journey to the coast or broads. The village is very quiet with a lovely local shop and pub.

Mrs W,

Extremely well equipped cottage in a good location with good facilities and services nearby. ideal for local cycling and walking, and coast and National trust properties not far away.

Mrs E,

Superb cottage beautifully presented and very, very well equipped! Close to a huge variety of local interest to suit all ages.

Mrs B,

Well appointed cottage containing everything that you would want for a week’s stay and more. In fact, we’ve never stayed in such a well stocked cottage. The gift of a welcome pack of milk, orange juice, cake and Prosecco was a pleasant surprise. Everything was comfortable and spotless. The local pub was nearby, very welcoming with friendly staff and locals, serving excellent pub grub and real ale. We’d happily recommend this accommodation to anyone.

Mrs A,

The Stables is such a gorgeous cottage! The owners have thought of absolutely everything you could need. A real home from home.

Mrs D,

This place was great. It had been renovated recently and it was clear that the owners had thought carefully about what anyone staying there would appreciate. There were loads of nice touches (milk in the fridge, loads of mugs for tea - and good quality ones, toys for kids, all the kitchen items you'd need). The property location is great - overlooking the green and near the shop and pub. The house itself had plenty of room for two adults and kids - if we'd been there in summer we'd have used the garden / summer house a lot more. I was please we bumped into the owner when we left to thank them in person.

Mr G,
