The Old Chapel in Gunthorpe not far from the North Norfolk coast is a really stunning chapel conversion, a stylish & luxurious holiday cottage – a perfect rural escape!
This super characterful holiday retreat has the ‘wow factor‘ in abundance. With clever interior design, the use of fabulous fabrics, statement wallpapers and heritage paint colours, an eclectic mix of contemporary and ‘antique’ furniture.
Enter the front door and walk into an open plan light-filled living space combining the kitchen, a dining area and an elegant, but cosy seating area around a log burning stove (pour a glass of wine, open a good book and take a pew).
Double french doors lead out onto the terrace (with glazed canopy and bespoke dining table) and pretty parterre garden, with open rural views beyond.
At the rear of the room, a door opens into a wonderful chill-out, dual aspect snug/cinema-style tv room, with sumptuous four-seater sofa and widescreen tv inset into library shelving and door opening onto the patio.
Upstairs are two glamorous bedrooms (king size and super king zip-and-link, both dressed with high thread count linen) and two bathrooms.
Although The Old Chapel is just perfect for a romantic getaway, it is equally suitable for a group of friends, as well as a small family.
This pretty and peaceful rural village is a superb base from which to explore both rural and coastal North Norfolk at any time of the year.
Our family of 4 + dog thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Old Chapel. Lovely property with garden backing onto fields. The facilities were great and the welcome pack gratefully received. Only thing lacking about the location is a village pub and shop within walking distance. Have already recommended to friends and family.

The village of Gunthorpe is situated in a shallow valley on the eastern side of the A148 King’s Lynn to Cromer road.
At the centre of the village is a green where there is a convergence of five roads. In the north west of the village there is a parish church which is dedicated to Saint Mary.
Close by is the old village school which was built in 1869, but now closed.
It is a very historical village with many interesting buildings including Gunthorpe Hall, designed by Sir John Soane who was the architect of The Bank of England building in Threadneedle Street.
Close to the market towns of both Fakenham and Holt and just a short drive to the coast.
