"Great property in a great location with great hosts"

The property is in a great location to explore all that Norfolk can offer. The property was very clean and is in a very safe area with good private parking. The very friendly owners live onsite and are always available to help, provide local information and to provide suggestions of places to visit. A great place to get away from it all.

"Beautiful comfortable country cottage"

A lovely cottage , with every comfort and every thing you could wish to find in a home, heated modern shower, very clean and well maintained. comfortable beds made up for your arrival, nice bottle of wine in fridge and cream tea what could be better. Jackie and John fantastic hosts, beautiful grounds leading down to the river and fishing . plenty of safe private parking and lots of peace and quiet in a beautiful setting . Very reasonable cost and you get a lot for your money. The location is good for traveling around with plenty to do and see in the area , and given the fact the cottage is heated it is suitable for winter and out of season breaks too. will be more than happy to visit again. Love the place

"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.

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.

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.

I used to go on holiday here and spent a christmas here with my family when i was a child and to be able to now take my two children here on holiday giving them the experience that i had when i was a child just shows what a truely wonderful cottage and surrounding grounds this place is. Jackie and John are two wonderful people who do everything to make you welcome! The cottage is beautiful and feels just like home. The gardens and river at the bottom of the garden are just perfect and truely magical. The kids and i had a lovely holiday!

"You'd have to go a long way to find better than this"

Jackie & John Spooner make all their guests extremely welcome including our dogs and are always willing to solve any problems that may arise, nothing is too much trouble for them. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped - home from home. The grounds are lovely and with the river at the end of the gardens there is always somewhere peaceful to sit and watch the ducks, swans and kingfishers. It is always difficult to leave at the end of our holiday but we keep on returning. We have made eight visits so far and there will be more to follow.
