“Delightful cottage”
Reviewed February 19, 2017 for a stay in July 2016

We have stayed at Pump cottage several times over the years and have always enjoyed a relaxing comfortable stay. The cottage is dog friendly and very well equipped. The wooded grounds are beautiful and the fishing is good.

“Brilliant holiday in every way!”
Reviewed February 18, 2017 for a stay in October 2016

I came here with my friend after listening to her telling me all about it. I could never have imagined the beautiful setting, the air of calm and tranquillity or the friendliness of Jackie and John. The whole area is beautiful, the grounds alive with birds and beautiful flowers, even swans on the river. What could be better than to sit in perfect peace by the river, watching the birds and enjoying the sunshine. The accommodation was excellent, and a four-poster bed too!! Jackie and John had left us milk, eggs and scones, with butter and jam and cream too, plus everything we could possibly need - including games and puzzles for a rainy day. We couldn't have been treated better! We will definitely be back!

“Wow!! Perfect in every way, peace and tranquility.”
Reviewed February 18, 2017 for a stay in October 2016

Wonderful cottage set in a quiet Norfolk village. Everything you could need ready and waiting including the milk, scones, jam and cream! Our hosts Jackie and John and not forgetting Rosie the dog, welcoming and always on hand for a chat or to make suggestions for days out. Walks down to the river to watch the swans, kingfishers and owls - absolutely beautiful. Having breakfast outside and sharing it with the blackbirds! Plenty to see and do if you want to have days out but just sitting down at the river is wonderful. The perfect holiday for getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday living. We are already planning our next visit.

“Perfect could not fault, other than we should have stayed longer.”
Reviewed August 1, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

A very joyful stay. The cottage was well equipped with everything we needed. We have never stayed in a traditional beamed cottage before so that was an added bonus for us (the wife and two teenage daughters).Jackie and John made us welcome from the second we arrived. We all especially enjoyed their very large garden complete with its very own section of river. For us the icing on the cake was the wildlife which included daily visits by several groups of swans, hedgehogs,squirrels and a variety of birds including kingfishers.And the local pub ("The Kings Head") is only a couple of minutes walk away which serves great food and bake their own bread which you can buy to take home.
