Property code: NCC40

A thoughtfully converted chapel, offering stylish yet comfortable accommodation for four guests, enjoying an enviable location in the village of Warham, only 2 miles from Wells-next-the-Sea.

Set in the idyllic Norfolk village of Warham, just 3 miles from the coast, this traditionally furnished converted chapel provides a cosy and welcoming retreat for guests. Its stunning original windows give a taste into its history, with high ceilings and exposed beams following the theme. A conservatory leading into a charming rear garden is a delightful spot to have a spot of lunch and two bedrooms and a family bathroom make this property perfect for a couple or small family who are looking for a real home-from-home experience.

With an excellent pub under a half-mile walk away, you can pop in for a hearty lunch before heading out to see the two medieval churches in the village - a surprising discovery for such a small parish. There is a little railway station which is on the narrow-gauge Wells and Walsingham Light Railway, where you can hop aboard for a trip to Wells-next-the-Sea at the coast. Here you will find many more shops, a charming quayside and a fabulous sandy beach.

Further afield, you can drive the 4 miles to Holkham Hall and visit the magnificent stately home and rolling parkland of this estate. Offering a full programme of events throughout the year, it is a great place for both children and adults to discover some of the UK’s marvellous heritage as well as the Holkham National Nature Reserve, one of the most important in Britain. Stop off at the Courtyard Café for a cream tea before heading home.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The cottage is well equipped in a quiet location,with a quality local pub a few minutes walk away.For a quiet relaxing place to be youre in the right place.Our only criticism is if you bring dogs or you are a walker you have to walk nearly two miles by road and track to reach the coastal path as the village and surrounding areas are not blessed witRead moreh public footpaths!

The property has a great location for the beaches of Wells and Holkham and the North coast of Norfolk in general. The local pub - the 3 horseshoes - was excellent. The outside looks impressive but the inside is rather tired and much of the decoration not in keeping with the building. It was comfortable but a little underwhelming and as such we didnRead more't feel great value for money. Having said that; we had a great time in an excellent location; just don't expecting period charm on the inside. Hide

Lovely home from home cottage with added history. Extremely well equipped, comfortable and in a central location for all that we wanted to visit.

The Old Chapel has great character and is so well equipped it is like a home. A few miles away from the busy coastline, the chapel is still close to many north coast attractions and a peaceful retreat at the end of each day. Our fifth visit and we will return!

A fabulous well equipped, dog friendly cottage off the main road between Wells and Cromer and ideally located to explore that part of the coastline. There is plenty to see and do for all age groups. Miles of beach, woodland walks, historic railway, museums of all types the list is truly enormous. The Three horseshoes pub is a short walk away which Read moreserves great beer and good food. We had a great time. Hide

Excellent location for visiting North Norfolk. Spacious throughout with full amenities including a lovely conservatory. The garden whilst relatively small captures the sun in the afternoon.

It is a lovely well equipped cottage. Very comfortable in a pretty village with a nice pub that does very nice food. It is only a short drive to Wells-next-the-Sea where there are lots of dog friendly walks on the beaches. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
