Lovey little hidden gem in North Norfolk, makes for a great base to explore the area, with lovely walking locally... and even a playground for the little ones. The cottage is charming, full of character, with enough space for a relaxing family break.

Thanks very much Dan - really happy you found The Old Chapel to be a hidden gem! I also appreciate your feedback comments - including how it was a little hard to find (it really is a hidden gem!!). For some reason satnav directions to the postcode stop in the middle of Saint Giles Road which is why I let guests know to continue to the end of the road to find the cottage.

We loved staying here! Sharon gave us a lovely warm welcome with plenty of tips about the local area. The chapel is spotlessly clean and really comfy. There is a sweet garden that is a sun trap. Perfect location for exploring North Norfolk. Thank you!

This place was far beyond expectations. The place was clean without being precious and very comfortable. The surrounding woodlands are amongst most beautiful in Norfolk. An unexpected and hidden gem. Loved.
