You can sit back relax and enjoy the Swans, Ducks, Kingfishers, woodpeckers, Barn owls that are becoming more and more common in the Waveney valley , can also be seen from the banks of the river, if your lucky you may even see the Otters that have been released over the past few years by the Earsham otter trust, or just enjoy feeding the fish, and watch them jump.

"Character cottage in wonderful countryside location."

We have just returned from a weeks stay at Pump cottage. This is our second visit and would recommend this cottage. A wonderful cream tea awaited our arrival, along with the friendly hosts John and Jackie who made us feel more than welcom. The cottage is set in idylic countryside with outstanding gardens which lead dowm to the river. A really remarkable holiday cottage well worth a visit.

"Fantastic"

Lovely well appointed cottage, with period features. Comfy beds, and extensive dvd collection, loved the disney cartoons! We spent several lovely hours by the river at the end of the garden although i failed to catch the big chub, we saw numerous kingfishers and watched the bats as adrkness fell. Owners were great, we had cakes and a complimentary bottle of wine in the fridge when we arrived!! Owners also have green fingers and much fruit and veg was home grown and cheaply available. Our dog Zebedee loved it, although he was a bit confused by the hedgehog he met!! Will recommend to our friends.

"TO GOOD TO BE TRUE"

When you go to the property the first thing that meets you is the warmth of Jacky and John. You are then shown your cottage which is wonderful. Your stay there then starts and whatever you like to do is all at hand ( walking fishing sightseeing or just relaxing) . I have been about ten times and have never been disapointed. I will also be going back for more. Its the ideal place to get away from the ratrace.
