Often described by guests in the log book as 'doggy heaven'. The Pump House is situated in the Dedham Vale, an area made famous by the the artist John Constable. Indeed Nayland Church contains an original Constable painting.
Dedham and Flatford Mill are close by. Stoke by Nayland itself is less than 1/2 a mile away and well worth exploring. As well as the two great pubs there is a well stocked and welcoming village shop.
The church, with its splendid 120ft tower dominating the landscape, is worth a visit. Hadleigh is just five miles away providing the usual supermarket facilities but do enjoy the more leisurely shopping experience in Hadleigh high street. Parking is free.
Just a mile away is Stoke by Nayland Golf Club, not only offering a round of golf but also providing every sort of pampering and beauty treatment you could wish. Sudbury, a delightful market town, is eight mile away and well worth exploring. Do visit Gainsborough House, the birth place of the artist Thomas Gainsborough.
Behind the town hall on market hill you will find all the tourist information you could wish.
