About the property

Cottage in Trunch, North Norfolk, England - Peaceful Idyllic Location - 2 Miles Off The Coast Near Mundesley

Pumphouse Cottage is the annexe of The Manor House, Trunch. It has been renovated in 2008 to a high standard and offers a self-contained single storey accommodation. The cottage is only 2 miles off the North Norfolk coast near Mundesley. In addition to its double bedroom, the lounge offers a comfortable bed-sofa where another 2 guests might sleep. The cottage has been tastefully converted with partly vaulted ceiling and is furnished to a very high standard in both modern and traditional country style. It offers a wood burner in the lounge, wireless internet access, off-road parking and its own garden and terrace with garden furniture. The accommodation has high quality wooden floors throughout, except for the traditionally tiled bathroom and cooking area. It still holds its original sash windows, together with newly installed modern double-glazed windows and a French door to the patio. Guests have also access to their own washing/dryer machine and utility room. For those who like to sit outside and relax there is a west facing patio area with a table and chairs and a further secluded garden area. There is private off-road parking next to the cottage. We accept well behaved children as well as well behaved dogs by prior arrangement.

We are both multilingual - John speaks fluently German and also Italian, while Susanne, besides her German mother tongue, also speaks French and Spanish.

Susanne Mason purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Susanne Mason chose North Norfolk & Coast

We love North Norfolk because of its beautiful landscape and nature, the seaside, the charming villages and market towns, the peaceful lifestyle. At the same time, Trunch is a very active, lively village, and most people are very friendly, helpful and laid back in our area.

Public transport is very good - trains and buses running at regular intervals to Norwich and London.

What makes this cottage unique

Pumphouse Cottage enjoys a very tranquil, peaceful setting on the edge of the village, with just open fields around. At the same time, the village shop and pub can be reached within a 5 minutes walk. And the nearest beach is just a 5 minutes drive away.

Our guests praise the cottage for its cosiness and comfort. They say it is far more spacious than it might seem online.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The peaceful idyllic setting is perfect for exploring North Norfolk. We had a fantastic time."

"Facilities excellent. We loved watching the birds in the garden whilst eating meals - a real 'home from home."

" A lovely, comfy, clean & warm cottage - very peaceful. Lovely sandy beaches. "

" Charm & practicality were offered in equal measure at this efficiently constructed retreat. Would highly recommend! Five stars ***** "

" Quiet, cosy & comfortable. Ideally located for so many attractions. Will be top of list for a place to stay whenever we come to Norfolk again."

Beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutly loved our stay with you in trunch! It was perfect for what we were looking for; a quiet weekend away with our 2 dogs. Close to the quiet sea side town of Mundesely, approximately a 10 minute drive from the house. The beach was beautiful, clean and quiet! The little house it self was lovely! Well cleaned, lovely set out, gorgeous garden for the dogs to run around in, and you didn't hear a sound from the house attached. I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to come back! Thank you.

Beautiful Little Cottage in the quaint village of Trunch in North Norfolk

  • 5 of 5

The property was in a perfect location for us. We took our 2 well behaved but boisterous Boxer dogs and the surroundings were excellent for them and us, with a large garden area for them to run around in.

Once they got familiar with the boundaries they had the freedom to move indoors and outside without us worrying and if they did venture off to explore the gardens of the main house, the owners were fine about it and even made a fuss of them.

The accommodation was really well laid out, clean, well equipped and well maintained, although with the location being a little remote, it would benefit from a larger fridge to save time on multiple trips to the supermarket for groceries, which was in North Waltham, although the village shop was quite reasonable on price and well stocked.

The property owners were excellent and after the initial introduction and handover, although they checked with us a couple of times during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed, they just left us to it, which suited us.

The property is located on the edge of farm land and is ideally located for both countryside and coastal walks, with larger coastal towns such as Cromer, Wells-next-Sea and Holkham just a short drive away.

Can’t wait to go back !

Beautiful little annex in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

I loved our stay in the pump house cottage! When we arrived, it was very easy to find. We were welcomed with a warm hello and given a tour of the pump house. The little house itself was perfect! Well laid out, clean, tidy, accessible and had the most beautiful garden! We had a good tv, the Internet, access to places to go, to eat, to visit with a map that the lovely owner had made herself! I loved everything about the house and garden! we didn't hear a thing from the attached house, we felt as if we were in our own home! We felt it was the perfect location for us; quiet with beautiful views and plenty places to walk. A short 10 minute drive from a local sea side town; the beach in mudesely was beautiful, quiet and clean! I would 100% recommend this stay and we can't wait to come back and visit again with our puppy dogs! Thank you!

Lovely setting.

  • 4 of 5

Only stayed for two nights so didn't use the cooking facilities. Had to ask for the heating to be put on as the evening was chilly. Clean property with a comfortable bed.

Owner's Response: Dear John Allen, Thank you for your review. We're glad that you enjoyed your short stay and found everything to your satisfaction. Our apologies again for the mix-up about the heating after you came back from dinner out on the first evening. This doesn't usually happen. Hope to see you again before too long.
