Staying in this beautifully restored town house in its row of elegant merchant houses lining North Brink, is an experience which brings a taste of authentic history and luxury that is quite exceptional.
With accommodation ranging over four floors, the house mixes the refinement and elegance of the early nineteenth century with the convenience of a modern six bedroomed house.
The private terraced garden and free access to the magnificent walled garden of Peckover House makes this a splendid setting for a friends’ or family reunion. Pubs and restaurants are within easy walking distance and there are a further 35 acres of National Trust parkland just two minutes away.
Wisbech, as well as its attractive historic quarter, has good road links to rest of the country, including the Norfolk coast, Ely and Cambridge, all of which are within easy reach for contrasting days out.

Things to see and do nearby
- 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.
