A real gem of a place. Mr Patrick O'Hara - 16th October 2017
Philip and Mary are the kind of people where absolutely anything is no trouble and every need that guests may have is catered for. There was a wealth of information at hand in the Old Chapel..Miss Donna-Marisa Lewis - 24th March 2017
We loved the character of the place. Old mixed furniture and touches like the harmonium and other old items made it feel special rather than the standard ikea fit out. Kitchen had everything we needed. LOVED the sauna. Mrs Sophia Stevens - 20th February 2017

Thank you so much for making our Easter Break really special, with a lovely welcome basket.Kingswood & Andy Butt - 21st April 2014
Coming back from a just too short stay at the Chapel we'd like to inform you that we enjoyed our stay very much. The chapel is very tastefully converted and you'll find there everything you need. Having two bathrooms and a very well stocked kitchen is a real plus. Not to mention the sauna. Beds were very comfy. You feel the private touch in every detail. Ideal starting point for touring North Norfolk. We would certainly recommend this cottage.Ms Bolus - 7th March 2009
