The Old School House 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 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!).Read more

We had an absolutely delightful stay in the Old School House and can't recommend it enough. It's location in the village of Wereham is stunning - it overlooks the village pond, across from the church and opposite the pub. A perfect English village setting. The property is extremely comfortable and spacious - it has attractive decor throughout and plenty of equipment. Many places we've stayed tend only to cater for basic needs but the owners seem to have thought of everything.
This area of Norfolk is largely ignored and yet there 's much to explore. King's Lynn, Swaffham, Thetford, Ely and the North Norfolk coast a little further afield. The National Trust property of Oxburgh Hall is a nearby gem too. However if peace and quiet is what you need you'll find it here. We'll be back.

Roomy, comfortable and well-appointed accommodation in a chocolate-box English village setting.
I was really impressed by the facilities and equipment available. There are plenty of touristy places to visit within reasonable driving distance. The house has plenty of room and is very well-priced, especially for a large group - a club break, family reunion holiday, retreat etc. The wood-burning stove and stock of games and books make it an enjoyable place to stay even on a cold wet day.
