About the property

Holiday Home in South Creake, Nr. Burnham Market, North Norfolk - Wonderful Views, A Large Beautiful Garden, Great For Families And Entertaining

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 lovely village in a conservation area that 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 is an old Norfolk farmhouse which is now a spacious 5 bedroom 3,500 sq feet home that has just been fully renovated and redecorated. Our private garden is nearly an acre in size and has been lovingly tended by the same gardener for over 30 years. There is a large area of lawn, mature flower borders and spectacular specimen plants such as the Wisteria that covers the flint barn in the garden, home grown magnolias and clematis. There is also a large patio, garden furniture and barbecue.

About Katherine Taylor

Calum spend his childhood holidays on Brancaster’s wonderful beach, and his family later moved to the area. We have since spent many happy holidays in North Norfolk enjoying both glorious summer days and blustery windswept winter weekends on the beach with our three children.

For us Norfolk is a magical place and we love the village of South Creake, so when The Chantry came on the market for the first time in 35 years, we jumped at the opportunity to look around it, and we were instantly bewitched by its charm and the beautiful barn and gardens. The house was in need of major TLC, so we spent many evenings planning how best to restore it whilst maximising the space and light, enhancing the views out into the garden and being true to its own period character.

Why Katherine Taylor chose Kings Lynn & West Norfolk

We bought a property in North Norfolk because so many of our happiest memories stem from here.

We toyed with buying somewhere in the Alps, or where the sun is guaranteed to shine, but there is something wonderful in returning to a place that you know and love. A place with huge expanses of stunning beaches; pretty Norfolk villages with cottages build in flint and brick; the market towns of Holt and Burnham Market with their boutique shops; the farm shops and artisan producers and a mass of fabulous places to eat.

We had spent enough time in Norfolk to know that it is just as special in the snow, the wind, or a spectacular thunderstorm as it is on a hot balmy day – you just need to be prepared for all eventualities (including sunbathing on the beach at Easter in 2011!).

What makes this farmhouse unique

The house is located up a quiet lane and has views over meadows, its own large, enclosed garden and to the church.

The large, open plan kitchen is wonderfully light and is a great place for lengthy lunches. The downstairs bedroom is great for older children in search of some privacy or equally for people that find climbing stairs harder than they would like. A separate playroom and sitting room means there is space for children to make a racket, whilst allowing you some down time.

The rickety table tennis table in the barn makes for an entertaining evening and for younger children, the large laurel shrubs provide a perfect setting for making a den or playing hide and seek. The bowling lawn provides space to play cricket, football, badminton etc (don’t forget to pack the them!).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely weekend thank you - The Chantry is in a great spot, is a beautiful house set in fantastic gardens. I'd certainly recommend it to friends.



We had a really superb time and were joined for day time visits by various relatives who all thought the house a great venue…. We thought the renovation (we had seen its original state when you bought it ) was superbly and tastefully done throughout and cleverly put together to maximise the space. It certainly provides flexible accommodation and also helped with the dogs who we were able to keep entirely within the hard floored entrance lobby or in the garden chasing balls thrown by the gardener throughout the week and they were happy! … I would definitely recommend it to others.



We had a lovely weekend, the Chantry was fabulous certainly a fantastic venue for a family gathering.



You have a wonderful house, and have done a fabulous job of renovating it and making it a really comfortable place to stay.

Fab stay at a lovely house...

  • 5 of 5

Katherine was very helpful when booking The Chantry.

The house was perfect for our large family. The house is in a good area, lovely beaches and pubs near by. The two boys loved the room and den. All the family had a perfect stay including the dogs who had a great time running around the large garden. Would stay again....:)

Wonderful holiday rental in superb location

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a fantastic week staying for New Year at The Chantry with some family friends and their children. You will not be disappointed if you rent this holiday home. It's situated down a quiet lane opposite beautiful fields and the duck pond. The property itself is extremely well designed and great for groups with the open plan kitchen/diner.seating area that looks out onto the beautiful gardens. The kitchen is extremely well designed and is very well stocked with plenty of crockery etc for a large group. The cosy lounge with open fire had plenty of comfortable seating for us to relax and enjoy. Our children were older so the playroom wasn't used but I can imagine if you have young ones then it's ideal for them. Our teenagers loved the area for table tennis and darts even in the cold. I can imagine in the summer it's superb and plenty of space in the beautiful garden . The beds were extremely comfy with lovely linens too and the large luxury bath a real treat. Showers were all excellent too. All in all I would definitely recommend this property and the owners were really helpful with our booking - the welcome fizz and beers a treat too thanks Katherine.

We love Norfolk as an area with plenty of beach walks with the dog. Would recommend Wells-next-sea, Brancaster, Holkham Beach and Holkham Hall plus Sherringham.
