ROBERT GREENFIELD purchased this cottage in 2012


Great period building in a stunningly picturesque location overlooking the famous bird watching nature reserve to the sea.

Peacefully located yet a short 5-minute stroll to the beach and all the amenities of Salthouse Village. Nearby are all the fabulous attractions that North Norfolk has to offer.

This locale is famed for it's hauntingly scenic, wild beauty, it's no wonder artists, writers, and filmmakers flock to this part of the North Norfolk coast.

What makes this cottage unique

Chapelmarsh contains a wealth of period features, including an original stained-glass panel, which we restored during our renovation in 2012. We offer a truly high-spec accommodation with all the modern amenities necessary for a luxurious, wonderful stay, moreover the sea-views from the cottage are absolutely breathtaking!

Many of my interiors have featured in magazines, and combined with our experience of running a former multi-award winning boutique establishment dubbed the 'Best B&B in England' over a number of years, so subsequently, we know what will appeal to the discerning visitor. Attention to detail is paramount! Something really special that makes our holiday cottages stand out from the rest, and a place where you will want to return time and time again!

Superb in every aspect

  • 5 of 5

We found this gem last year and stayed in April 2016 - I didn't think about writing a review at the time but now I am looking at properties for this year I realise I should have. This is the most wonderful property in a fabulous situation. I still think about the view from the kitchen and the beautifully designed rooms. Absolutely loved our stay here and were made to feel most welcome with flowers and chocolates and wine. Great local pub, amazing sunrises (and sunsets from the beach) great walks and cycling, wonderful beaches and seals! I would have no hesitation in recommending Chapelmarsh.

Lovely February getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a really good find, very clean, warm and cosy with great extras such as fresh lilies, chocolates and a bottle of wine. We would certainly recommend Chapelmarsh and has the added bonus of sea views.
