About us

My name is Helen.  My husband and I live just outside Newmarket with our children and two cats.  Our family has enjoyed the North Norfolk coast for years.  We had always dreamt that one day we may own our own little bolthole to enjoy the big skies and unless golden beaches of North Norfolk.  Chapel Cottage is a much loved holiday cottage where we spend many happy weeks and short breaks during the year.  I am often in Warham making improvements to the cottage.  I love decorating, upcycling & painting furniture and working with local craftsman to create beautiful soft furnishings and furniture, using local or reclaimed materials where possible.  I always make sure that any trip to the cottage includes a walk along the Quay in Wells-next-the-Sea and a visit to Staithe Street and all its lovely individual shops.

We love the dunes of Holkham, the beach huts at Wells with its soft golden sand, the salt marshes and its abundant wildlife and the beautiful countryside around Warham.  We feel ourselves unwind the moment we spot the sea.

We fell in love with Chapel Cottage the moment we laid eyes on it in 2017.  It has that rare mix of being close to all the busy coast has to offer, yet set in a almost unspoilt sleepy Norfolk village, allowing you decide on what pace of holiday you want!  You can't fail to relax the moment you walk through the door.  The cottage is cosy yet spacious. It makes a great space for up to six guests, but works just as well as a romantic get-away for couples.  Some days you can hear the whistle of the Wells to Walsingham stream train whilst sitting in the garden.  Our family loves sitting in the garden, listening to the breeze in the trees, whiling away the hours, and leaving everyday pressures at the front door.  We hope you will too.

We look forward to welcoming you to Chapel Cottage

"Lovely cottage in a great location!

We had a great stay at Chapel Cottage - the cottage itself is very cosy & the beds are so comfortable. Great facilities. It is in a great location - we visited West Runton, Sheringham, Wells and also ventured to Norwich! Loved it! Highly recommended!"  02/08/2019
