Located two minutes stroll from Aylsham’s Market Place, Tinsmith’s House is accessed via a pair of large barn doors opening from the street into an inner courtyard, the B&B is accessed via the ground floor arranged around a single multi-purpose room that encompasses living room, dining area and kitchen with a separate dining room where we serve breakfast that opens onto a charming garden. Both double bedrooms are on the first floor.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION: Set between Norwich, the villages and beaches of the North Norfolk coast and the tranquility of the Norfolk Broads, Tinsmith’s really is the ideal spot for your stay in North Norfolk.
AUTHENTIC COMFORT & TRANQUILITY: Well-appointed, comfortable bedrooms are designed with carefully chosen hand-made furnishings, where possible in keeping with Tinsmith’s as a workshop, it is an unusual and pleasing building of historic interest, set within a conservation area.
STYLISH ROOMS: Both rooms are furnished with an eclectic mixture of re-purposed, antique and contemporary furniture. Each room has been thoughtfully decorated in natural colours and hung with contemporary art of the non-threatening variety. The smaller bedroom has its own en-suite shower room, whilst the larger bedroom has exclusive access to its own luxurious bathroom across the landing. There is free WiFi available, bottled mineral water as well as tea and coffee making facilities. Freshly laundered good quality cotton towels and bed linen is provided.
GOURMET BREAKFAST: We serve top quality ingredients from our local butcher, fishmongers and bakery as well as fruit and vegetable traders. We provide full English or vegetarian breakfast options, served along with fresh tea and coffee. The vegetarian options change with the season and are based upon a frittata or a tortilla. If you have special dietary needs please do let us know 3 days in advance before your arrival so we can ensure we have adequate substitutes in place.
TINSMITH’S HISTORY: Before becoming a bed and breakfast Tinsmith’s House was originally a metal-workshop manufacturing metal animal feeders. Tinsmith’s early structure dates from the late eighteenth century, a timber framed building spanning a gap in a row of terraced houses and workman’s cottages. Underneath its wooden cladding, the building has been extensively re-fashioned, following the original floor-plan. Tinsmith’s retains its workshop feel with the addition of flagstone floors, underfloor heating, double glazing, modern insulation and open-plan living, that have coalesced to make it a uniquely designed, contemporary dwelling with a comfortable and authentic approach to B&B.
ABOUT DUSTY AND CLEO: Our ridiculously friendly Labradoodle dogs are very welcoming to visitors (apart from other dogs), so I am afraid we can’t accommodate pets along with our guests. Dusty and her daughter Cleo are not allowed in any of the guest bedrooms and sleep downstairs, though this doesn’t stop them plotting to gain access!
