The Old Chapel holiday home details

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, and super comfy beds that you won't want to get out of, the interior has a slightly boutique, industrial/warehouse feel with an odd 'nod' to the chapel's past.

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.

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. Only a twenty minute drive to the beautiful north Norfolk coast where you can discover charming coastal villages, some great gastro pubs, fantastic scenery and lots more.
