With wonderful walks, two fantastic pubs and uninterrupted south facing views over the Box Valley, The Pump House is an extraordinary sanctuary of bucolic peace and beauty. A dedicated labour of love rejuvenated this 1930s Art Deco utility building in a sublime and secluded rural setting. It is the ultimate Constable Country retreat nestled in a private wild water meadow next to the River Box that runs through the Dedham Vale.
Originally built in 1938 as the village pumping station, it was fully restored and extended in 2005 to create an ethereal space with an unrivalled connection to its stunning natural landscape thanks to the extensive use of glass. Equipped and furnished to offer a wonderful stay. Boasting an open plan social living accommodation. A well-equipped kitchen allows dining from home, and the dining room enjoys a full wall window and a wood burning stove, perfect for the cooler evenings. The sitting room located in the glass conservatory style extension has large comfy sofas, the perfect place for great conversation, and offers an uninterrupted 180-degree view over the Box Valley and has French doors leading out to the terrace. The paddle stairs, compact and steep ladder-styled stairs, lead into a cinema/snug with a sofa bed for additional and alternative sleeping, and a large Smart TV. Outside is a large raised wooden terrace with seating and an outdoor table along with a BBQ. A side ramp leads down into the private water meadow that is half left wild and half mown and features a separate river bank seating area and direct access to footpaths.
Stoke by Nayland is popular with many returning visitors, standing in the county of Suffolk, lying close to the border with Essex, it offers an idyllic location within the Debham Vale and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
