The centre of Aldborough village is within a 5-10 minute walk from Chestnut Barn where you can find our fantastic local pub - The Cricketers on the Green - which serves terrific locally sourced food and has a 5 star rating on Trip Advisor, a shop with Post Office and children’s play area which are all located around the traditional village green where cricket is often played during the summer months.  Many more pubs and restaurants are in the local area and we are more than happy to share our recommendations.
