Excellent space for bringing friends and families together
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.

Lived up to expectations
Brilliant accommodation for our family birthday gathering - six adults and four children, five and under. Very cold weekend but the house was warm and welcoming after day trips out.
Great social spaces - kitchen, living room and top-floor sitting room. Well equipped kitchen (we had a chef come in for dinner on Saturday and he was impressed!), loads of crockery, glassware and cooking pots, big fridge, good Sonos sound system.
All in all, value for money and very good place to spend a few days
Upwell Village is the longest village in the UK and links onto Outwell Village. Both villages have working 12th century churches, post office, butchers, pubs and grocery/convenience stores as well as garden centres and a local bus service
