Stunning Converted Methodist Chapel

Waterfront holiday home with kitchen and fireplace
The Chapel was built in 1803 and converted recently into a beautifully designed house with large social spaces which are perfect for entertaining friends and families. As you enter the chapel you are welcomed into an enormous drawing room with 2 lounge areas, a dining area and the main staircase taking you to the first floor. The main lounge is focused around a large stone fireplace with an 18kw wood burner with 2 large sofas and 2 chairs. The second lounge area with a L shaped sofa and chair is at the front of the house where you can enjoy the morning sun and watch the boats go by on the river. The dining table comfortably sits 12. Through the oak arch you enter into the large country kitchen with a seperate pantry/utility room and cloakroom. Spiral staircase to the first floor, french doors out into the garden. A 6 gas ring/electric double range oven and a dining table that seats 10. Outside there's are 2 lounging areas, one with an open fireplace, dining table and a Weber drum BBQ. And if you have a boat - A private mooring at the front of the house.

On the first floor are 4 large double bedrooms all with king sized beds and memory foam mattresses - the master bedroom has a superking sized bed and the 2 front bedrooms enjoy views across the river. A large wetroom with rainfall shower and a lovely bathroom with large roll top bath. A large hallway with seating takes you to the dial staircase and up to the second floor with exposed beams and another lounging area. Here we have an open plan master suite with the 5th king sized bed, and 2 occasional guest beds that can be made up anywhere in the house. A large lounge area with 3 sofas and various chairs plus a 48" Samsung smart tv. This room measure 10 metres by 6 metres so plenty of space to relax or socialise.

We have a Sonos music system throughout the house, 2 Samsung smart TVs with Netflix and Amazon

The chapel is in the village of Upwell which has 3 pubs all within walking distance of the house, a post office and convenience store next door and a butchers plus a fish and chips shop!
Lovely walks along the river and through many orchards. A park with a child friendly enclosure. A 12th century church and a narrow boat company within the village that can pick you up from outside the house and take you for day trips on the rivers...

Excellent Property for a large gathering
Lovely property. Great for a large gathering of either family or friends. Ideal for christmas. Owner very quick to respond to queries both before and when we had an issue when away (fuse box had tripped). Would recommend.

Amazing house for a 60th family birthday party
Wow, the house is amazing. For a family of 9 people there was plenty of room for us all. The garden is great and we spent nights sat outside or around the large table. Everything is thought of for your stay and we would definitely recommend this to anyone thinking of renting this property. Gregory the owner is very helpful and nothing is too much trouble for him. The location is quiet (which we wanted) but there is a lovely pub in the village we a few of the group went too (to watch football on sky - but they didnt have it lol). A walk around the village is a must and the church over the road is lovely to have a walk around to blow off the cobwebs. A fantastic weekend was had by all, would definitely recommend, thank you the Hargadon gang

Absolutely stunning home, perfect for a big group
This was such an amazing place to stay for a group of 12 friends getting away for the weekend. The house is absolutely amazing- the old wooden doors and original features give it such character and the decor is super luxe - it made for a weekend that felt like a real treat! With a handy shop next door and a 30minute walk to the local canoe hire everything was easy and convenient. Only tip would be to make sure you book your taxis in advance as there are clearly not many in the area and we struggled to get hold of one at short notice when calling from the train.

Family stay in Old chapel, Upwell Village
We had a lovely stay in the Old Chapel, Upwell village. The house is beautifully furnished and elegant throughout. We enjoyed a luxury stay for 9 days. The bedrooms and bathrooms are stylish and plush, the social living areas are spacious also. Top floor allowed the teenagers in our family to have some space away from their parents for films and gaming. The kitchen is of high quality and cooking or BBQ and entertaining for a family of 9-10 was very easy. The owner Greg was incredibly helpful and responsive to our many queries in the weeks before our arrival date and also with very helpful advice during our stay. We enjoyed a lovely canal boating day out from March marina, A day in Ely, and at Holkham beach, visiting Great Bircham windmill also. All worth a visit. Lovely family meal out at the Moorings restaurant and fresh deli shopping at Worzols. Thank you Greg, for allowing us to stay in your lovely home. We hope to return again soon. best regards Sanjay & Melissa
