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.

Things to see and do nearby

East Anglia, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire

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.

    Made enjoyable.....

    It is always a pleasure to arrive at one of your properties and find it in spotless order. often, we have found a tea tray ready and milk in the fridge. That is so delightful and welcoming. We recommend National Trust as an organization and as a holiday location to all our friends. We keep our previous catalogues so that we can offer them to friends. As overseas visitors, it is so important to know that the facilities will be as we expect. Thank you for making so many holidays memorable. I should add that, on this occasion, there was a handwritten welcome note beside fresh flowers on our arrival. The note will go into my scrapbook for this trip. It was so kind.

    Made enjoyable....

    We had out of hours access to the Peckover House gardens and the kids were thrilled by this "secret garden", accessed with its own special key through a door in a high wall. Wisbech was a great base for exploring the fens and North Norfolk and took us to a remarkable and fascinating town that we would never have ordinarily stayed in, as it's not a "classic" tourism destination. Sometimes those places are more intriguing than picture postcard locations with a single story to tell.

    Access to the gardens in Peckover House was amazing. We were lucky enough to meet Emma, the house manager, who was fantastic and very helpful in meeting all our needs

    To be able to visit and enjoy Peckover Gardens at our leisure especially in the evenings. The Cottage itself was very cosy and had been decorated with thoughtful character. The flowers and biscuits were a welcoming surprise on our arrival. The Coach House Loft was conveniently located for visiting other National Trust places in the Cambridge/Norfolk areas.

    This is a property which allows after-hours access to the gardens of the NT property next door which always feels like a special privilege. The caretaker clearly has very high standards of housekeeping! It was spotless and in great order
