The Ironmongers, Aylsham
Overlooking the ancient Aylsham market square and drenched in history, The Ironmongers offers unique boutique accommodation. As you step into this old Elizabethan townhouse, there’s a real sense of history that floats through the air. Taking on many guises throughout its lifetime, such as a tailors, wine merchants and, of course, an ironmongers, this is an iconic building packed with personality. But what makes The Ironmongers even more unique is the collision of boutique design and period features, which just works wonderfully.
Each of the eight bedrooms at The Ironmongers cleverly blends old with new in an extraordinary fashion. Imagine chunky timber beams, sash windows and 17th-century wattle and daub walls mingling with a four-poster bed and ultra-luxurious bathrooms. Adding to their charm, the rooms’ names have been inspired by market trades from times gone by, such as Haberdashery, Florists and Cobblers.
