The old chapel has been architect-designed and accommodates three in two bedrooms. The chapel has a modernist but quirky flair and is surrounded by a large garden. It sleeps three in two bedrooms, and is situated in a quiet village south of Fakenham.

The space
The chapel has been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard and provides accommodation for two to three. There are no doors, so the space has an airy and light feel. The chapel was refurbished by an architect and its many features include a double-height main living cum dining room with a wood burner, a conservatory space leading to a south-facing patio. Original floor tiles on the groundfloor and built-in custom made cupboards and wardrobes give the upper floor a unique flair.
The kitchen and bathroom are on the groundfloor, and are well-equipped, and the two bedrooms have a kingsize and a double bed respectively.
The bathroom boasts a large power shower, the kitchen a fridge with a freezer cabinet, dishwasher, mircrowave and induction hob. The house is fully equipped to allow you to cook a special meal. Seating is provided in the dining-cum living room, which has a large refectory table, six chairs, a large three-seater sofa and freeview TV, auxiliary speaker, and windows to three sides. The garden is accessed from the house through a small conservatory with two leisure chairs. The garden is unusually generous for a chapel, and is south facing so you can enjoy meals on the patio in the sunshine. A rustic BBQ is provided.
The chapel has electric heaters in all rooms, and a woodburner provides extra warmth and a nice focal point in the main room.
Access to BT wifi is provided.

Norfolk, England, United Kingdom

Wellingham is a small hamlet which is mentioned in the Doomsday book, and has not changed much. It has a wonderful 14th century church open to visitors from dawn to dusk which is famous for its painted wood screen dating back to the 1532.
The next village with amenities including a shop/newsagent/postoffice/drycleaner, a butcher and a pub is Litcham, about ten minutes by car. A large array of independent shops, supermarkets, a small museum and restaurants can be found in Swaffham to the South and Fakenham to the North.
The Norfolk champagne coast, the beaches in Holkham or Burnham Straithe, are only 35 minutes away, and the immediate surroundings are suited for rambling in the wonderful Nahr valley, enjoying walks or birdwatching in various nature reserves, or visits to the many nearby stately homes, including Holkham, Sandringham and Houghton House.
