The Pumphouse is close to the historic towns of Cambridge, Ely, and Kings Lynn, and the north Norfolk heritage coast. The Pumphouse sits on the banks of the river Wissey in the corner of the new Wissey Valley Living Landscape reserve run by Norfolk Wildlife Trust. You cannot get closer to nature, nor find a more secluded retreat. With 5 bedrooms, an interior spa, and a huge kitchen, this is the ideal place for a retreat, a family reunion, a party, or just to get back to nature.
The Pumphouse is an isolated 'get back to nature' type place. Inside its industrial and contemporary with concrete, wood and brick. Outside there is the deck and barbeque, and then just nature. In front of you is the river bank with beautiful walks, and next to you is the nature reserve, teeming with birds. On the track down you will see every kind of animal, from deer to hares to geese and herons - it really is an escape. Once inside you are in comfortable easy to use space - spa, big screen TV with Sky, huge kitchen, and comfortable en-suite rooms. Oh, and we leave you with a wonderful hamper of local produce to get you going - Enjoy.......

Gathering nectar and pollen from the local shrubs and wildflowers, we have 3 colonies of bees living in beehives along the edge of our land next to the wetlands.
You have access to all areas - make yourselves at home, but please treat our home as you would treat your own.....
