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.

About Susanne Mason

We enjoy very much running a B&B in our main house and letting Pumphouse Cottage, the former outbuilding of the house. It is great meeting people from all kind of directions and nationalities.

We have been living here for over 10 years and are very happy to give you as much advice as needed to make your holiday a good experience.

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 Trunch

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 and garden ideal quiet position

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage with everything you need. Added bonus of a beautiful garden to relax in. Especially nice to have a private area, not having to share the garden with the owners. We enjoyed having breakfast in the garden and watching the sun go down with a glass of wine in the evenings. Susannah and her husband are lovely people, making sure we had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. On hand to give us lots of information about the area. The property is placed in a ideal quiet location, only a short drive from the coast and easy access to Norfolk and the Broads. We explored a lot of the area, which is a must for any bird and wildlife lovers. There was nothing we could fault about this property and would definitely stay here again if we ever return to Norfolk

Very nice property in a quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the peace and quite of the property and found some good places to eat out. It was good having some National Trust places to visit as well as Norwich and Sandringham. The weather was wonderful and the sunsets were spectacular.

Exactly as the advertisement said it would be--charming!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in a picture card cottage, that fulfilled all of our needs .

The owners could not have been more helpful ,and welcoming for our dog too.

That meant a lot to us, and we would thoroughly recommend this accommodation to dog owners in particular.
