We stayed here for a family friend's wedding. It is very near the centre of the village and the church so the location couldn't be better. We were offer complimentary tea and cake on arrival in the beautiful garden. Our hosts, Chris and Irene are lovely who clearly enjoy looking after people. We stayed in the Blue Room which overlooks... More

We stayed for one night, en-route from Sheringham to Cambridge. The traditional style house is beautifully decorated and maintained, and it is was a great pleasure to stay there. The owners could not be more friendly or helpful, and the rooms and beds are very clean and cared for. The breakfast is amazing, and for those that know American B&B,... More

With new owners at The Old Pump House you wonder whether it will be as goods as you remember. The standards were just as high - even if with different touches, not disappointed. Great to have all the delicious local produce for breakfast and of course Marmite on artisan bread. Lovely chocs in the room!

We stayed two nights at the Old Pump House and it is truly outstanding. Attention to detail and comfort for the weary traveller. Superb breakfasts, catering to all diets and tastes, superbly presented and expertly cooked. The rooms are spacious (at least ours was) and very tastefully decorated; modern but functional. This is not style over substance, but style where... More

Has been taken over in the past few months by a charming and enthusiastic couple who provide a warm welcome and serve a delicious breakfast, with ingredients largely sourced very locally. The accommodation was very comfortable with a number of thoughtful touches; we were going a wedding locally and the roads are dark - there was a torch in the... More

Stayed one night which was too brief, but room was very comfortable, hosts were very welcoming, and breakfast was superb. Great location just a very short walk from the main square, but still very quiet and peaceful. Recommended for anyone staying in the area.

The old Pump House is comfortable and very friendly. The food is excellent and the new owners make one feel extremely welcome. We have no hesitation in recommending wholeheartedly this outstanding B&B in an attractive market town close by many interesting and beautiful places to visit. We wish Chris and Irene every success. They certainly deserve it.
