The Old pump House cottage sleeps up to 2. Sympathetically converted from domestic buildings The Old Pump House is accessed via 13 steps into a Victorian brick courtyard. The property retains parts of the original pump mechanism in the lounge/dining area. The high ceilings, the inglenook fireplace in the bedroom and country furniture all combine to provide a relaxed 'lived in' comfortable atmosphere you will love. The cottage is attractively furnished to a high standard, truly a home from home, designed so that your holiday is the ultimate get away from it all.
The Old Pump House boosts a well equipped kitchen and an integral spacious lounge with a TV & DVD- a curtain hugs the door for cosiness on winter nights. Although the kitchen is fully equipped, if you’d rather take a break from the cooking, there is a great selection of country pubs/restaurants a short drive away, fancy a night in with your pouch, why not let us prepare a meal for you and serve it in your cottage.
Walking through into the large bedroom, you can't fail to be impressed by the way the room is displayed- described as "pure theatre". Add the large en-suite wet room and this is a delightful hideaway.
Local Area - Firstly, within walking distance we have the Norfolk & Suffolk Aviation Museum and St Peters Brewery. The village's own Museum houses 50 aircraft; a large inside display, as well as buildings showing the history of other aviation related organisations- Very interesting for aircraft enthusiasts and non-enthusiasts alike.
The Old Rectory offers an excellent base for guests who wish to walk, cycle, fish or watch birds.
For walkers & dog walkers there are numerous footpaths including the Angles Way and Bigod Way- all of the cottages have Ordnance Survey Maps and we also have a small library of books detailing local walks.
