Nr Downham Market, West Norfolk
The loft styled refurbished Pumphouse offers five double bedrooms, three of which are en-suite, an indoor spa with views towards the nature reserve and the Norfolk fens.
The Pumphouse offers practicality, comfort and coolness in equal measures and has a fabulous large open plan living area with amazing views and a well equipped kitchen, state of the art AV system, and wood burning stove.
For those who want to make the most of the rural location for rambling or riding, canoeing in the river, or exploring the neighbouring wild life reserve, this is the perfect spot. For those who fancy an opportunity to let their hair down with barbecues, spas and a bit of fun in the country, the Pumphouse is also ready and waiting.
With a large outdoor deck, a barbecue big enough to roast a hog, the indoor spa and an entertainment system that would meet the expectations of most teenagers, this is a great place to relax.
The Pumphouse was built in 1849 by the then owner of the surrounding farmland. The pump drew water out of the fenland drain which runs up to the Pumphouse from the south and discharged it into the River Wissey via a large cast iron pipe running through an arched brick culvert in the dyke, which serves as the river bank – the vestige of this is still visible.
