The Norfolk Chantry
The Norfolk Chantry is our special holiday home in beautiful North Norfolk – with 6 double / twin bedrooms which sleep 12 in great comfort and 14 when a couple of kiddie beds are added. If you appreciate lots of space, comfort and character then The Chantry has the ingredients for a wonderful holiday or well earned break.
South Creake is just 4 miles from Burnham Market and 6 miles from the sea, making it an ideal base from which to explore and enjoy Norfolk’s huge beaches, picturesque villages and fine hostelries.
The Chantry was originally 3 medieval cottages that were combined to create a farmhouse about 100 years ago and was given its current name in 1926. It has since been extended over the years and is now 3,600 sq feet and has recently been fully renovated and redecorated.
The large kitchen is open-plan with a sitting and dining area creating a sociable centre to the house. 5 meter long sliding glass doors bathe the room with light and give uninterrupted views of the beautiful garden. There is also a separate more formal sitting room and a playroom for kids and a large welcome hall which is ideal for dogs, coats etc … but also a great location for Christmas morning breakfast in front of a log fire.
The well-tended private garden is around an acre in size and contains a wisteria covered games barn with table tennis and there is plenty of room outside for croquet … or football if you prefer!

The Chantry is our much loved Norfolk holiday home and sleeps 12 (-14) in great comfort. We have countless happy memories of having other families to stay and friends over for long, lazy, laughter-infused meals that with our busy lives so often seem to escape us when at home. The house has masses of space so family members can have quiet times as well and don’t feel they are falling over each other the whole time as can happen in smaller holiday homes.
We love it … and hope you do too!

The Chantry sits on nearly an acre of gardens near the Norman Church of St Mary’s in South Creake. With open views over the meadows you will certainly feel you have escaped from everyday life leaving you ready to relax.
South Creake is a thriving village just 5 minutes from Burnham Market and 10 minutes from the sea.
