Description

Lovely spacious comfortable house in quiet rural Norfolk village opposite lovely, welcoming village pub

sleeps up to 10 adults,(+babies or small children) big lounge seats 12, big dining table seats 10. Ideal for families, parties, celebrations, holidays, weekend beaks. Available all through the year. Cosy in winter with good central heating and log burner.

Cots and high chairs available.

Four bedrooms. Bedroom 1 with 4 poster bed and ensuite, Bedroom 2 with double and single bed, bedroom 3 with double bed, bedroom four with 2 singles and 2 good quality futons. Additional folding bed and child's foam bed also available.

The name of our house is confusing as it implies it was the home of the village school teacher. As far as we know it never was. It was built in 1844 as a Wesleyan Chapel. The design is typical of early Norfolk non conformist chapel architecture. In 1851 there was a religious census made (the only time this has ever happened). It records

The design is typical of early Norfolk non conformist chapel architecture. In 1851 there was a religious census made (the only time this has ever happened). It records that an average of 70 people attended services at this chapel and records that on Sunday 30th March 1851 52 people attended the morning service and 46 in the afternoon including 12 Sunday scholars. In the 1880s the congregation became more numerous and affluent and then built the more traditionally designed Chapel which still stands next door.

This building was used was then used as a Sunday school and chapel rooms. Older residents of the village remember going to the Chapel services and the Sunday school and have happy memories of the Sunday school outings to Hunstanton. (The really canny ones used to go on the church treats too!).

Now a very comfortable house with large lounge with log burner, 4 good sized bedrooms. will accommodate 8 adults with ease with 2 older children/ teenagers and younger children including babies.

Bathroom facilities include: Ensuite to main bedroom with shower,hand basin and loo. Main family bathroom has roll top bath with handheld shower, handbasin and loo .There is a third loo downstairs .

Well behaved pets welcome. Lovely dog walks. Pub welcomes children and dogs(not compulsory!,).

There is room for double airbed in the lounge to give extra flexibility to the sleeping arrangements

George and Dragon Pub opposite is very welcoming.Search for Wereham George

Wereham

The ancient Saxon town of Downham Market is a delightful place to visit and is one of Norfolk's oldest market towns. Considered by many to be the gateway to the Fens, and with a network of waterways close by plus lots to see and do in the town and surrounding area, Downham Market is a great place for a weekend break in Norfolk.

Downham Market has a wealth of interesting historic buildings. In the main square see the town's unique black and white clock tower. Gothic in design and made from wrought iron, it is proudly considered one of Downham Market's most distinctive features.

The Town Hall is another beautiful building, which was built to celebrate Queen Victoria's jubilee in 1887 and remember to look out for the St Edmunds Parish Church - the town's oldest building.

“Picturesque and quiet cottage, perfect for families”

Reviewed 16 May 2012

We rented this cottage with a group of friends over a long holiday weekend. The place is quiet and perfectly picturesque, and has everything needed for an enjoyable weekend. The landlord & lady are very friendly too. During the weekend we visited Ely cathedral and Oxborough hall, two fabulous sights very near by. The only downside for us was the bad connection to public transport. Taxi from Downham Market is feasible, but we opted to rent a car for the weekend instead.

Owner's reply: Thank you.Really pleased you had a great time.
