This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

Part of a converted coach house to the rear of Wainman House, this first floor apartment has a light and airy, yet warm and friendly feel. Access, through the former coach entrance gates, reveals a secluded inner courtyard which now provides a south facing outdoor seating area and private off road parking. Set within the historic quarter of Wisbech market town, just five minutes from the yacht harbour, the apartment is opposite more than 35 acres of National Trust parkland offering convenient walking opportunities from the doorstep. You will also be given a key to your own private entrance to Peckover's delightful garden for use on open and closed days. Free access to Peckover House and other selected NT properties during normal open hours.

East Anglia

The ancient kingdom of East Anglia has preserved much of its unspoilt character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions with attractions ranging from the University city of Cambridge and the Cathedral city of Ely, to glorious, often deserted, sandy beaches, lots of seaside fun, outdoor pursuits and the unspoilt waterways of The Broads. National Trust places in East Anglia are equally varied, ranging from the magnificent Blickling Hall in Norfolk, the impressive rotunda at Ickworth, near Bury St. Edmunds, the elegant Anglesey Abbey, to the dramatic coastline at Dunwich Heath, with its neighbouring RSPB sanctuary and the Anglo-Saxon royal burial site at Sutton Hoo.

    Lovely comfortable apartment

    Lovely comfortable apartment and a great base for exploring the greater area. Very well appointed and lovely and clean - thank you, Sheila. It is on a busy road with some traffic noise but not on a"pub route" so it didn't bother us at all.

    Lovely clean accomodation

    Lovely clean accomodation to use as a base to explore - Wisbech itself was very dissapointing. May I reccomend a DVD player!

    Our first stay in a National Trust cottage and certainly won't be the last.

    Our first stay in a National Trust cottage and certainly won't be the last. Excellent facilities, perfect location for seeing the surrounding area. Haven't needed the books we brought with us. Thoroughly enjoyed the Halloween party
