How to find us
Pumphouse Cottage at The Manor House, Trunch, North Norfolk, is ideally situated for visiting the beautiful Norfolk beaches, The Broads, the stately houses of Blickling, Felbrigg, Mannington and Wolterton, as well as the wealth of wonderful hidden churches, the local market towns of North Walsham, Cromer, Wroxham and Aylsham, and of course the vibrant city of Norwich with its museums, cathedrals, art galleries, shops, theatres and market.
The Manor House itself is a beautifully restored period building in a semi-rural tranquil setting at the edge of the village. The village of Trunch hosts a Pub, "The Crown Inn" , a lovely historic church, St Botolph's, a village shop and a post office.
The 14th-century church of St Botolph's is famous for its carved and painted wood canopy. Only four such canopies still exist in England. High quality concerts take place regularly at St Botolph's.
St Botolph's also features a hammerbeam roof with carved angels, as well as medieval misericords under the seats in the chancel. Lord Nelson's daughter is said to have been married in the church.
There is easy access to the Bittern Line, the Network Rail connection from Norwich to Sheringham.
And for those who enjoy walks, there are miles of footpaths (the cottage is on the Paston Way) along either the beach or the cliffs. There is public transport from Trunch to North Walsham, Norwich, Wroxham or Cromer (train or bus) and the coastal villages (bus), available at hourly intervals.
