Hall Farm Barn lies within an idyllic and tranquil location close to the River Bure. It overlooks open fields and Lammas church.
“The River Bure is the longest of the Norfolk Broads Rivers. The Bure rises near Aylsham which was the original head of navigation. Nowadays, the head of navigation is 10 miles downstream at Coltishall Bridge. After Aylsham Lock and Burgh Bridge, the River Bure passes through Buxton Lamas, Coltishall, Belaugh, Wroxham, Horning, past St. Benets Abbey, Acle, Stokesby, along the northern border of the Halvergate Marshes, through Runham and Great Yarmouth where it meets Breydon Water and flows into the sea at Gorleston.” (source: Tour Norfolk)
Buxton is our main village with a general store and 2 pubs, but there is a wider range of shops in the market town of Aylsham (3 miles).
“Aylsham is an attractive market town, situated beside the upper reaches of the River Bure. Aylsham has an unspoilt market place, surrounded by 18th century houses, reflecting the towns prosperity from the cloth trade during that period.
The 15th century church of St. Michael dominates views of Aylsham and it is claimed it was built by John O’Gaunt (who is also pictured on the town sign).
Aylsham is the Northern terminus of the Bure Valley Railway that runs to Wroxham. Aylsham has plenty facilities including interesting shops, pubs and tea-rooms. Nearby Blickling Hall is a magnificent Jacobean house, garden and park, famed for its long gallery, fine tapestries, paintings and rare books. Blickling Hall is also home to the ghost of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII’s second queen.” (source: Tour Norfolk)
