About The TowerA special and luxurious escape with a roof terrace and lots of original features on the Blickling estate.
A holiday at The Tower really is something special. Formerly the Earl of Buckinghamshire’s race stand, this luxurious accommodation now boasts a roof terrace and your very own Rapunzel tower. In keeping with its fine period style, original features such as the large arched windows and quirky spiralling staircase are complimented by an elegant décor.
Set on the Blickling parklands, views stretch across rolling fields, woodlands and out towards the coast. There are walking and cycling trails to explore and local ales to be sampled in the estate’s country pub, The Buckinghamshire Arms.
Beyond the estate walls, the sandy beaches and cliff top paths of the Norfolk coast are within 20 minute drive. Blakeney National Nature Reserve is 20 miles away. The Georgian market town of Aylsham can be reached within a 30 minute walk or five minute drive.
