The Old Chapel

England: East of England: Norfolk and the Broads: Hindolveston

English Tourist Board Four Star Gold Award

The Old Chapel is a beautifully restored 19th century brick and flint former Primitive Methodist chapel located a few miles from the idyllic North Norfolk coast.

The original character of The Old Chapel has been preserved, with the main body retained as a dramatic open-plan living area reaching to the heavily-beamed roof; this is overlooked by a mezzanine bedroom accessed by a cast iron spiral staircase. Sleeping accommodation is provided by a king size bed in the mezzanine , supplemented by a double sofabed in the main living area. In winter The Chapel is particularly cosy with a wood burning stove in the corner inglenook fireplace and a very efficient oil-fired modern central heating system, making it an ideal year-round Norfolk holiday cottage. The bright and airy fitted kitchen has plenty of work surfaces ideal for self-catering, and is equipped with all modern conveniences, including electric hob and oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and other facilities: everything you need for creating great meals from the amazing produce available locally. We’ll even leave a couple of bottles of locally brewed real ale and a pair of the famous Bray’s Cottage Pork Pies in the fridge to get you started. The roomy modern bathroom is equipped with a WC, sink, shower and washing machine attached. If the peaceful North Norfolk lifestyle leaves you craving 21st century leisure pursuits, don’t worry. The Old Chapel is equipped with broadband wireless internet access, high definition television and DVD player, internet telephone, and cabling so that you can just plug your iPod into the hifi system. There is also a selection of games and a good collection of books. Comprehensive details about how to get the most from your holiday in the village and the area can be found in the folder on the bookcase. The accommodation furnishings - including a working harmonium - reflect the building’s origins, and these are enhanced by fittings collected by the owner, a photographer based in Moscow, from his international travels, primarily in Russia, the Former Soviet Union, and Central Asia. The Chapel is also decorated with a small selection of the photographer’s iconic work for various international publications: prints are available for purchase on request.

Views, wildlife and local environment:
The south-facing patio garden enjoys uninterrupted views of open fields and Hindolveston Wood. The garden is equipped with a barbeque, table and comfortable seating for outside dining: perfect for communing in the evening with our nearest neighbours, the wild pheasants and barn owls who reside in the adjoining fields.
