  • "Poor lighting in bathroom and lounge."

    Shower not suitable for average adult. Furniture not practical in kitchen or bedroom too much clutter about. Pointless games room unless your twelve. Main concern lack of exits if there was a fire. Why the Xmas decorations in November?Why always alcohol in welcome pack and not bread milk and eggs. Disappointing place. Clear the tack and gimmicks it's a holiday let after all.

    Sorry the property did not meet your expectations. With regards to the games room and furnishings; these are featured in the photographs online and I would urge that you check property descriptions and images online prior to booking to avoid future dissapointment. Sandringham had its Christmas fair last week and our property was to be part of the same experience, hence the decorations. In addition, I can assure you our property also has a professional fire report which commends its safety and is reviewed annually. Thank you for your suggestion for adding milk and eggs to our welcome pack, this is certainly something we will consider, however I was glad to see you'd enjoyed the complimentary drinks!

  • "We had a wonderful week stay at the Old Chapel, set in the little village of Flitcham."

    Situated on the main road which can be busy during the day but it was hardly noticeable inside the property. Stylishly decorated and tastefully furnished throughout. We had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Bed was super comfy too it being a Tempur mattress. Our friendly neighbour was on hand if we needed help with anything. We were especially pleased with the Sky TV which had Netflix and Disney+ so we could watch films etc at our leisure. There are lots of dog friendly places to visit and you won't have any problems finding somewhere to eat with your furry friend either. All in all a great place to stay whether you want to relax or be out and about. Will definitely be back again in the future, thank you to Roger our host.

    Thank you so much for your very kind words, it was a pleasure to welcome you as guests and we very much look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

    The wine and crisps welcome was a lovely touch. The down side for us was that the oven was desperate for a clean. Would have liked instructions for use of oven and central heating, sorted out heating with the help of Paul next door. Thermostat needed new batteries. One shower very small, but other than that we had a lovely comfortable and relaxing week.

    Thank you for your note. Sorry to note about the Oven we shall ensure that is not done again. Central heating and oven notes are within the church binder and new batteries are always available in the cleaning cupboard. One of the two showers is smaller but we decided the roll top bath was original and worthy to keep and also it provides options to those who like a long soak! Many thanks. Property Owner

    Clean comfortable and very well equipped, however there wasn't an iron, which actually made my stay perfect and Patrick looked fine in creased trousers. The garden was beautiful and secure for our little dog. The neighbour next door was friendly without invading our privacy, which was welcoming. We would have no hesitation in recommending this delightful property. We are also considering a return next year.. Thankyou.

  • "Property stank of dogs on entering."

    We could not eat in the kitchen such was the odour. Not cleaned properly at all. Lounge similarly doggy to the extant that dog allergy triggered without any live dogs present. Even with antihistamines we had to leave after just 2 nights. Do not stay here if you are allergic to dogs. Entry to off road parking dangerous if you want a safe exit, or a safe entrance means backing out onto the main road through the village. space for 2 small cars only. Entertainment good for teenagers, location nice, close to coast and Sandringham.

    What a howler ! Why would you rent a dog friendly property when you have an allergy? If you had a peanut allergy then you would not eat a sneakers bar. The property has a tilled floor (common in Norfolk) which exceeds 75 percent of the property, the carpet in the lounge is washed twice a year if not more and dogs not allowed upstairs or on the furniture to eradicate smell. Review such as this are disappointing and factually wrong, we are sorry you chose the wrong property for your condition. Property Owner

  • "Nice quirky chapel with garden."

    Great location to visit Hunstanton and Sherringham. A lot of thought has gone into chapel and we liked the decor. Owners very helpful. The only thing we found difficult was that the village was very busy with traffic, so there was constant noise and you can hear the road in the chapel. There is also building works going on next door. This is out of the owners control, but we were hoping for a sleepy village and this was not the case. We were a couple so the cottage was plenty big enough. I think 6 (as chapel has 3 bedrooms) it maybe be cramped downstairs. Also if you have children there is games room which would be ideal but the table football as in photos is no longer there, so maybe photos need updating. We enjoyed exploring the area and there are plenty of places to visit.

    Thank you for your comments. New photos have been ordered and the table football was unsafe due to damage caused by other guests so we had to remove it. The chapel is based on a working estate (Sandringham) and so an element of road noise is to be expected at peak times the road is also evident in the picture we are pleased you enjoyed the decor.

  • "Uniquely lovely!"

    Such a gem! The photos does not do it justice. We loved investigating each room and finding the unique charms and surprises that tied into the history of the chapel. A lot of thought and consideration has been put into the facilities and amenities. Fruit basket, lovely wine and prosecco. We received a lovely welcome from the very friendly and helpful neighbour. Even booking was a great experience. I got a phone call thanking me for the booking, had a lovely chat and was sent a link with all the info I could possibly need. Extremely thoughtful, accommodating and helpful. Going the extra mile in helping sort out an issue that was entirely our fault. Thank you so much! We definitely highly recommend this cosy, quirky gem.

    Thank you, it means an awful lot that you had a great time and enjoyed yourselves, welcome back any time! Property Owner

  • "The property is not as described."

    There's very little storage in the kitchen for groceries and there had been items left by previous occupiers. The instructions are not up to date and the television is far too complicated. The main disappointment was the bathroom facilities, certainly not adequate for six people especially as the downstairs toilet appears to be blocked and we did not use all week. On the positive side there are lovely neighbours and the beds were excellent.

    Thank you for your response. Its a shame you did not reach out about the toilet had you done so it would have been fixed. We assisted you very quickly regarding tv operation and using the correct remote for the sound when first arriving. We are disappointed at the review having received a string of complementary reviews and an increase in returning guests. The property has a uniqueness and that is part of its charm, its a conversion and so one would expect it to be at odds with mainstream housing of today. The kitchen set up is evident within the photos and therefore plenty of storage and provisions with previous reviews being very complimentary about kitchen facilities. Property Owner

  • "Wow, what a little gem !"

    ! Lovely converted dog friendly chapel in the heart of Flitcham. Our party consisted of 4 adults and a Westie. Was pleasantly surprised at the size of the property. Large well equipped Kitchen/Diner has everything you could possible ask for. Large lounge which easily seats 7 adults - combination of quirky sofa and chairs but very comfortable, downstairs WC, confined but does the job. Lovely games room if you have children Xbox, games and dvd galore. Three good size bedrooms, although twin didn’t have much hanging space but plenty in the master bedroom so daughter was happy to share . Hairdryers and towels provided in all rooms. Information guide on property and useful local information can be found in folder on dresser in kitchen. Good size rear garden with bbq and a lovely seating area. If you are taking your dog would suggest you close gates on driveway to secure garden as it wraps around. Sensor lights in driveway and leading up to the back door. A great location to explore the surrounding area, Cromer, Wells Next Sea, Hunstanton Old and New and of course a few miles from Sandringham. Paul the next door neighbour and his wife are a lovely couple, they have a wealth of information regarding the history of the village and the Royals. Roger the owner was on hand as and when needed, we had a little issue with the key safe, but a txt sorted this problem out, also recommended restaurants and places to visit. Building work is going on next door - however this did not affect us. The builders arrived around 8am and were gone by 4pm and they didn’t turn up everyday. Please bear in mind the location of this property there is no village shop or pub. We would definitely recommend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Have one suggestion bathroom light - could do with brighter bulb.

  • "General cleanliness was sub standard."

    The lounge smelt of dogs and we avoided this room for the whole week - we know pets are allowed but dog hairs on the sofa and we tried to use the hoover but this was entombed in dirt and dog hairs - the state of the hoover would have created more mess than cleaning it and to top it all the owner states "sofas are for humans"? The kitchen, appliances and cooking items were dirty and clearly had not been cleaned for a while. Dishwasher filter blocked with food? An uncared for property! The other main complaint was the building site right next door to property - morning skip delivery - workers vans parked in front of Chapel - crashing and general noise throughout the day - came home to some peace and quiet. It is the responsibility of the owner and/or Sykes to inform customers of any such works at the time of booking so we can make an informed decision. Images and video submitted to Sykes - pictures speak a thousand words.

    Thank you for your feedback. Sorry you are disappointed. The carpets received a shampoo prior your arrival, new scented oils were added to the lounge. The Chapel has a grounds-person as well as a housekeeper to ensure it remains cared for as well as all exterior woodwork being repainted in July. We shall ask the housekeeper to wash the utensils and move them into the draw to avoid contamination whilst cooking. We are sorry we failed to meet your expectations but the hospitality industry is still recovering from Covid. Property Owner

  • "The property was fine."

    Lovely building, in a lovely village. Although the road it’s on is a bit of a “ rat run” at times with it being a short cut to the coast. The chap next door was a true gentleman. The decor wasn’t to our liking but then we’re all individuals. With are own unique likes and dislikes. The sofa in the lounge was very difficult to get out of. The drive was a little cosy for two cars. Beds were surprisingly comfortable. The house is technology rich. The kitchen was a little cramp with very little space to store food. The low lamp and positioning of the table meant it was difficult to avoid hitting your head if you sat on the window side of the table. A door mat is needed in the kitchen. Nowhere to wipe feet on entering the kitchen. I used a mat from my car. The on suite isn't actually one in the true sense of the word. Shower yes, no toilet though. The down stairs toilet is very cosy. Just enough room to do what needs to be done, tall folks could possible find it too cramped We didn’t use the garden. Looked fine although you’d have to watch children with it being a raised garden with a good drop onto the path in places. Overall we enjoyed our stay the area is wonderful and with in easy reach beaches and places of interest.

    Thank you for your feedback. We've introduced a mat as suggested and bought a shoe rack. When looking at the property description it does clearly state en-suite shower and not bathroom, however the word en-suite has been removed. October is also prime potato season here in Flitcham and road noise will be unusually higher at various times in the months of September and October. When delivering the experience to our guests we deciding to move away from Magnolia and pine the sofa is from a well known chain advertising a laid back lifestyle consistent in our belief people on holiday wish to slow down. This is a Victorian period property full of character and charm that's part of its magic and away from todays square boxes and hemmed in gardens. Thank you for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "The Chapel itself had been done very nicely, however overall it was a challenge with 6 adults."

    The lounge was difficult to sit 6 people comfortably to watch TV. The sofa although looks fab it was very low to the floor and hard to get up from. The property also lists a downstairs cloakroom which again was difficult to use and for the bigger person would be impossible I realise its due to the design of the building,so not sure anything can change. One other thing which I think should be noted in the details was the garden,to access the main garden area was 2 very high steps or an equally steep grass bank, which again for the slightly less fit would be very difficult to use the garden, which is a shame as its very nice once you get there. Although we would probably not book this particular property again I'm sure we will book through sykes again.

    Thank you for your review. When we decided to decorate the chapel we had hoped we had catered for all, the sofa whilst low is a loaf sofa designed for a layback lifestyle, there are of course three armchairs that can be moved to accommodate guest requirements. We are sorry to note that you found the steps steep and the cloakroom on the small side, we believe the sympathetic conversion has kept the chapel original and in keeping with its original features.

    Fortunately for us the extensive building work next door was suspended during our stay, otherwise that could have been an issue. The property was well equipped, especially the kitchen , with high quality equipment. However we were constantly hitting our heads on the low hanging lighting above the dining table, for the first couple of days. The games room was a welcome bonus, our grandchildren enjoyed making use of it and the gaming chair. We were fortunate to have excellent weather for our stay, so made good use of the very pleasant garden.

    We are sorry to hear our property was not as tranquil as usual. This may have been due to it being harvest time when you visited. Norfolk is a farming county, and with Flitcham sitting on the working Royal Estate, there may have been a higher level of traffic during harvest season.

The property

Nestled right in the heart of the picturesque village of Flitcham, and accessed by a beautiful landscape of country roads deep in the heart of the Royal Estates you will find The Old Chapel standing proud waiting for you to retreat to.

Despite dating back to 1885, The Old Chapel has been lovingly restored and is decadently and considerately decorated throughout.

As you enter the gravel driveway which can accommodate two cars to the rear of the property you are greeted by a landscaped garden.

A large purpose-built BBQ area just waiting to be enjoyed at your dining leisure.

Contemporary stable doors open up onto a kitchen fit to provide and seat a feast with a traditional long church table and benches where many a meal can be consumed with pleasure.

A small downstairs toilet for convenience is tucked under the stairs.

A delightful games room excitingly invites you in for all gaming pleasure.

Lift the latch on the wooden door to enter a vastly seated lounge which welcomes you in to try a spot of local gin.

A large open fire just waiting to be lit… Pull the blinds, nestle down to the crackling pop of the wood fire, turn on the speakers, take a sip, and stretch out fully on the main coach to take in your choice of viewing or listening pleasure with complete surround sounds.

The upstairs of the house boasts a beautiful deep free-standing bath designed for stargazing fun.

The small shower is perfect for a rinse off after an enjoying day at one of the many sandy beaches and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and wildlife that nestled this gem of a hideaway.

The bedrooms consist of a large master with a king-size bed, a further two double rooms, one consisting of another king-sized bed, the other two singles.

Every room encompasses its own unique character complete with Tempur mattresses and cushions.

Plenty of storage throughout allows for a comfortable relaxed stay.
