A charming conversion of a small country Methodist chapel. Largely open-plan, the original high ceiling has been retained with a large central hearth feature providing a focal point. Modern comforts mix with reminders of the former use of the building, such as a harmonium, chapel chairs and a pew.

The small village of Banningham lies between Norwich and the coast. There is an attractive old pub in the centre with the market towns of Aylsham and North Walsham within three miles. The village offers a good base from which to visit many different parts of Norfolk including the beautiful coastline, the renowned Broads and the fine city of Norwich. Local attractions include fishing lakes and The Bure Valley narrow gauge steam railway, where cycle hire is also available.


We very much enjoyed our 4 nights at The Old Chapel. The sauna was much appreciated after long walks on chilly days, the wood burner was also wonderful making for very cosy nights in. The cottage was very clean, delightfully quirky and located on a very quiet lane within easy reach of many places of interest. The owner took great care in ensuring we had all we needed and were settled in. Highly recommended.

Mrs L,

This was a great place to stay in an ideal location for us to combine a holiday with meeting up with friends and family. A unique property with many original features and very well equipped.

mr B,

We liked being able to have supper outside on two evenings and enjoy the views of fields. The summer house was great for a morning cup of coffee.

Dr D,

We loved the old chapel. We actually stayed on a previous occasion and loved it then too. It has been improved since our previous stay. New furniture and carpets and wood burner stove. The place has masses of character and is so peaceful and tranquil. It’s a wonderful little place to escape to.

Mr R,

Very nice home with superb log burner. Good location with easy access to all main areas (Broads etc) within 45 minutes drive. Lovely local steam train at nearby Aylsham.

Mr H,
