Albert's Cottage is over 200 years old and sits beside the village pond. The cottage is cosy, with beams, well furnished and has a wood burning stove.

In the warmer months what could be better than a BBQ in the garden in the evening.
But with the benefit of the wood burning stove to make chilly winter nights cosy, we remain open throughout the year. Close the curtains and cuddle up by the woodburning fire to read a book, watch a film or T.V. or even play a game.

Two bedrooms - one with four poster and one twin.
The bathroom is downstairs and has a bath with shower.
The kitchen is well equipped with most appliances (Sorry no dishwasher.)
There is a television in the lounge and both bedrooms.
Has C.D. player, freeview, fridge/freezer, microwave and small washing machine.

Ashill is in the heart of Norfolk and in Breckland, just six miles from the historic market town of Swaffham; now famed for the filming of Stephen Fry's 'Kingdom'.

There are many local attractions including National Trust properties (Oxborough Hall, is just 7 miles away). The coastal area of North Norfolk, Wells and Blakeney are within 35 miles and Sandringham, home to the Queen, is little more than half an hours drive.

We have much information on places to go and things to see.

Norwich, a must for shoppers.
The Mid Norfolk Railway at Dereham.
Thetford Forest, Britain's largest lowland pine forest.
Gressenhall Rural Life Museum, a brilliant day out to learn about how Norfolk people used to live.

Snetterton Racing Circuit which hosts British Super Bikes and Touring car championship races amongst other exciting events.
Pleasurewood Hills Theme Park, a must for children!
Lenwade Dinosaur Park, another childrens' favourite.
