About The Peckover CottagesA gorgeous Georgian house and a converted coach house make up this cluster of cottages in the heart of Wisbech, Cambridgeshire.
Two individual cottages sleeping 17 guests in total.
Coach House Loft is part of a converted coach house to the rear of Wainman House. This light and airy first floor apartment boasts rustic exposed beams and a secluded inner courtyard with a south facing outdoor seating area. Whilst behind its modest Georgian exterior, Wainman House boasts an elegant six-bedroom house where much of its refined neoclassical style remains. Mosaicked floors, wood panelled walls and period fireplaces run throughout, giving this holiday stay a truly luxurious feel.
As a guest, you’re entitled to free entry to Peckover House and, as an extra special bonus, you’ll be given a key to your very own entrance to Peckover’s beautiful garden. Explore the grounds at your leisure, even after all the other visitors have left.
You’ll be in the heart of Wisbech, the birth place of Octavia Hill, and where much of its historic Georgian architecture stills stands. Walk just a few minutes to shops, restaurants and its very own, 200-year-old brewery, Elgood’s.
The wildlife enthusiasts in your party should head to the Wash National Nature Reserve, just a 16 mile drive from the cottage. A short distance further the coastline changes from dramatic saltmarshes to ‘soft sand and big skies’ with miles of sandy beaches, pinewoods and dunes stretching from Hunstanton to Brancaster and beyond Holkham to Wells-next-the-Sea.
