Our 4th stay at the property which will unfortunately be our last due to a false accusation made after our stay by the owner Terri (03 June 2017)
The property was very clean, comfortable and well equipped and the location is very good for visiting places of interest on the north norfolk coast. Sally from Brackley, Northamptonshire (16 February 2017)
We arrived late on saturday and was very disappointed to have to make up the beds, it was surprising that the waste bin in the bedroom contained the previous guests rubbish and the bed broke after a previous repair plus part rolls of toilet paper for 2 loos. The curtain fitting in the bedroom was broken and coming off the wall and the net curtains in the bathrooms afforded no privacy from the neighbours when used with the light on. The kitchen drawer unit was broken and light globes needed replacing. The wifi worked for 1 day then was off for a week before being fixed. During this time we had no communication with the outside world from the property, no mobile or landline. The positives are that this property is in a beautiful location. If these issues are addressed with good maintenance, cleaning, tlc and a bit of generosity it would make a fantastic holiday rental. John from Australind Western Australia (19 November 2016)
The house itself is comfortable ,though I suggest you bring your own pillows, and is set in lovely peaceful surroundings. However , having stayed in many holiday homes, I felt that the owners had no interest in the enjoyment of their guests. I have never before had to make my own beds and it is many years since I have been in one that did not even provide a tea bag for initial use. Having been previously provided with everything from trays of tea and home baked cake to bottles of wine and milk, bread ,tea and coffee to welcome guests I did not feel at home.the wifi was on only two days out of seven and I found the list of instructions eg . put the used bedding in the bath, move the bins to the end of the drive (the latter not easy on thick gravel), rather offputting. B. from Skipton (15 October 2016)
A comfortable apartment in a good location. Wifi reception was often poor, particularly on week days. our arrival was marred by poor directions, a lack of any sort of welcome pack, having to make up our bed & little toilet paper. Paul from Clitheroe (08 October 2016)
A beautiful property in an idyllic location, felt guilty when we drove past the ducks at bought in case we woke them! . very homely apartment in an historic building, would have liked some info on that! . lots to do locally. . the orange tree at thornham to die for. No mobile phone signal at all which was a good thing! excellent wifi though. Lovely new shower, kitchen well equipped but sofas a bit too unsupportive for my back! (that probably says more about my back than the sofas!). lots of stairs so don't attempt with bad knees, but definitely a lovely "church view" that's worth the climb! Sue from Herne Bay (17 September 2016)
A beautiful place to stay. Some minor maintenance issues which did not affect our holiday. David from Wolverhampton (10 September 2016)
Quiet location, close to our activities, only problem regarding car parking upon arrival, but easily sorted. Pleasant weather contributed to a nice family holiday. James from Oakham, Rutland (20 August 2016)
Good location, great new shower and all very clean. . . biggest issue was that the advertised wifi was between.5mbps and a maximum of 4.25mbps, we both had work to do so very frustrating, it's understandable in rural norfolk where the service is poor, but don't offer what you can't deliver. Susan from Norwich (07 May 2016)
Our 3rd stay in this apartment. Very spacious in a great location and good facilities. Internet connection poor, but otherwise great. Terri from West Midlands (02 April 2016)
We spent a lovely peaceful christmas there in a lovely setting. The apartment is warm and cosy. Janet from Halifax (28 December 2015)
Outstanding loved it had a great relaxing girly weekend Confirmed Guest (29 November 2015)
We loved church view. Great apartment in a gorgeous setting, fabulous location. Very clean, warm & welcoming. Well equipped for a family much larger than us three. Victoria from Holmfirth (31 October 2015)
Enjoyable holiday cottage a little tired in places, shower access restricted. Ann from Lowestoft (11 September 2015)
Church view is a lovely apartment in a delightful part of north norfolk. The accommodation is comfortable, spacious and well-appointed and was spotlessly clean on arrival. . sadly there was a bit of a problem with the boiler and hot water supply during our stay . but hopefully this has now been sorted out. We would definitely consider staying at church view and would recommend it to others. Sue from Belvedere (05 September 2015)
Completely excellent! definitely recommend! Deborah from Milton Keynes (08 August 2015)
A comfortable and spacious maisonette in an atmospheric period property. The location is quiet, charming and almost as if time has stood still. Having no internet was a plus as far as I was concerned! a lovely relaxing stay and lots to do in the surrounding area. Will from London (01 August 2015)
Don't be misled by the description "apartment". this is really a large, two bedroomed house on three floors, the ground floor being merely the entrance hall. This accommodation suited us 100% as we were only in the area for a weekend, to babysit young grandchildren whilst son and daughter in law went to local wedding. Would certainly visit again, but not with young children. it is a pity there is no outside space whatsoever - no good with children. Otherwise, everything perfect, good clean spacious comfortable accommodation. Everything worked. well recommended without children or animals! . hope to visit again. Leonie from Leeds (29 June 2015)
Modern large comfortable apartment set in beautiful tranquil surroundings. the wifi signal was terrible. Confirmed Guest (15 June 2015)
Perfect in every way, our only negative would be having to make your own beds - after a five hr journey it wasn't appreciated however we couldn't fault it otherwise and would definitely recommend staying there. Tracey from Cheshire (18 April 2015)
A lovely cottage with a quiet, but great location. The only thing missing was an area to sit outside. Sarah from Hertfordshire (06 April 2015)
This was our families first visit to norfolk and chuch view provided us with a good place to relax in after a busy day cycling and exploring the local area. The flat was warm and had all the conveniences you would need. The garage provided a great safe place to lock the bikes up and the kids loved feeding the ducks at the pond around the corner. If you need somewhere to escape the daily grind and enjoy some peace and quiet we would definitely recommend church view in old hunstanton. Andy from Cumbria (03 April 2015)
Fabulous property in a quintessentially english setting Andrea from Raunds (08 March 2015)
Very spacious. Well equipped. Loved the location and everyone very helpful and friendly. Lynda from Northants (02 March 2015)
The details of the apartment seemed just what we were looking for but having read some of the previous comments, I was a little put off initially but having contacted the letting agent, who spoke to the owner, we decided to book. The apartment is very spacious, it is spread over three floors and is well appointed, with a dishwasher and a washing machine. The sitting room has an open fire and gets very cosy with a proper fire going. Regarding previous comments, there is no smell in the bathrooms and there was ample hot water for a bath. The shower has been upgraded and gives a good hot shower. The kitchen hot water takes about three minutes to come through but is then more than hot enough to do the dishes. The wifi was not working, which didn't really bother us. I reported it to the letting agent who were going to look into it. If not having wifi is a dealbreaker, you might wish to check it is working before booking. . we took our bikes because of the good cycling nearby, and made use of the bike storage which is a full sized locked garage which was ideal to store and maintain the bikes. . overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it. . Andy from Birmingham (21 February 2015)
We loved the location and the accommodation was both spacious and comfortable. however, the problems with the hot water system proved to be a pain. as there were only two of us, we didn't use the dishwasher, but getting hot water to the sink took ages. as the shower wasn't too inviting, we hoped to take a bath, but could only get luke warm water. there is a very unpleasant smell in both bathrooms, which increases when the loo is flushed. Jacqueline from Shaftesbury (03 October 2014)
The cottage is a flat in a former vicarage converted into a few properties. It exceeded expectations- the location was ideallic and the accommodation substantial. The flat was very well equipped and the dishwasher and washing machine were easy to use. It had plenty of everything in the kitchen and it made it a lovely stress free experience. There were full sized staircases in the flat so they weren't steep but the stairs to the bedrooms only had a handrail on the inside turn so you had to walk on the narrow part of the step if you wanted to hold on. It was fine for us even carrying our twins but a bit unusual to see no outer rail. The flat was extremely spacious and light with gorgeous views of surrounding walled gardens and the huge medieval church. There is no garden belonging to it but a short walk takes you to the duck pond opposite the church and you are out in the countryside anyway. The approach to the property is down a gravel drive just before the private entrance to hunstanton hall. There is public access to the estate on thursdays and it's a pleasant walk. Old hunstanton has a great big beach past sand dunes with beach huts on and there's a good pub at the best western called the ancient mariner inn that looks out onto it. We travelled round easily and took our girls to alsorts. They enjoyed bircham windmill and snettisham park the most. There is a little farm at the windmill where they can watch sheep being milked and climb the windmill and snettisham farm park had a brilliant deer safari where you go out on a tractor trailer to feed the red deer. The deer push their heads through the bars of the trailer to feed from your hands so you get really close safely which is amazing and you can see the whole herd including the huge stag. We had a fab holiday in west norfolk and not a drop of rain. Highly recommended if you want to escape the rat race to a picturesque countryside location with a relaxed pace of life. Jane from Leeds (13 September 2014)
Everyone I dealt with ,from the owner to the key holder ,where pleasant and helpful! however,the plumbing arrangements leave a lot to be desired, especially the deliver of hot wate to kitchen sink. The shower cubical is a bit tatty. Lack of garden/ outside sitting area lets it down for us. Others visitor may not mind this.other than that, it is perfectly adequate but no more than that. Michael from Ilkeston (16 August 2014)
Very peaceful location. Andrew from Nottingham (09 August 2014)
Fabulous place and we all love it, hence returning, our only criticism is the shower.. could really do with a little money spending on it, it's quite poor Jo (30 March 2014)
We arrived and didn't believe all that was ours. Beautiful home, beautiful location. We will return soon for sure !!! Mark from Market Harborough (02 March 2014)
Very roomy with very comfortable beds. Very nice surroundings with lovely duck pond and church. 15 min walk to beach along roads. My main criticism is lack of sitting out space. Beautiful gardens surround the cottage but you cant use them : ( would prefere not to have bright red sofas and would like a larger tv to watch dvd's on - it seems really small from the other end of the room where the seating is! Nicky from Sheffield (26 February 2014)
It was interesting and novel to stay in a former old vicarage and the property is charmingly positioned on the edge of old hunstanton close to the church. We enjoyed our stay, however, overall I would describe it as satisfactory rather than rate it higher because it just missed the standard in a few simple but important ways. The kitchen could have been cleaner as there were [dog?] hairs all over the table cloth and an unpleasant stained j-cloth left wet in a sink surrounded by broken tiles. There is a lovely large bathroom but the only shower, which is in a separate room, is very old and you have to be both slim and nimble to get in and out of the door. The information in the cottage encouraged you to park carefully in front of the garage or inside it to avoid blocking other residents. I tried to use the garage as the parking space was a little tight for my car but found it full up with a kitchen! so, if you want to stay in a character apartment in a lovely quiet location and are happy to live with its little foibles then i'd recommend it. David from Dean (11 October 2013)
Great location very quiet and close to an excelent restaurant called the lodge. Francis from London (29 September 2013)
Excellent very quiet location. Well equipped although some of the appliances need replacing. Leslie from Staffordshire (21 September 2013)
Great location and views, perfect for visiting the neptune. However, just need to bear in mind you have to cross the very busy main road to get to the beach, and it's a good 20 minute walk. towels and bedding a bit tired, but it is the end of the season. Susan from Norwich (06 September 2013)
Location- tucked away in the very tranquil part of old hunstanton. 20 min walk to the beach. We will stay again but bring our own bedding for the following reasons (bad points). Rie from Essex (12 Jul 2013)
Fantastic location, beautiful views all around. 5 minute drive to the beach. Clean, spacious. hope to return again. Emma from Leicestershire (13 May 2013)
Absolutely lovely location to unwind relax and recharge. Will be going back for sure. Gary from London (17 February 2013)
Plenty of space except 'dining'part of kitchen diner. Clean and superb location. Nice and quiet. John from Nottingham (15 September 2012)
Delightful cottage with plenty of space in pleasantly quiet location within walking distance of the sea. Pleasantly furnished. These factors outwiegh the points below. Confirmed Purchaser (18 August 2012)
In an excellent location with lots to do nearby. Peaceful setting and roomy accommodation. Customer 42 (April 2012)
Very quiet part of Old Hunstanton but only short walk to the beach. enjoyed being on first floor as good views of the church and surrounding gardens etc. Would benefit from a sitting out area easier to use as it seemed that it was the same area where our car was parked. Customer 43 (August 2011)
It was in a nice quite location but handy for visiting places of interest by public transport. Customer 44 (May 2010)
Good peaceful location. Customer 45 (May 2010)
Light and spacious accommodation in a quiet village. Cut down Smugglers Lane and the path across the Golf Course and you are on a stretch of glorious sand in 15 mins. On a clear night go and look at the stars from the drive - fantastic! There is a football pitch a few minutes walk from the door that would be safe for younger children to run about on. Customer 46 (August 2009)
The property was spacious and airy. Good sized rooms. Pleasant surroundings. Excellent holiday however there was no mention that it was a flat/apartment in what used to be the Old Vicarage until I read the directions that took me to "Flat 1". Customer 47 (July 2009)
Great view from the kitchen. Spacious flat. Customer 48 (June 2009)
Lovely accommodation, beautiful surroundings, within easy reach of local bird reserves, excellent amenities nearby. Would definitely book again! Customer 49 (May 2009)
Perfect base for local nature reserves. Customer 50 (May 2009)
Church View has a lovely idyllic setting looking towards the Church. Our toddler enjoyed watching the ducks in the nearby duckpond, and it was a short walk to a lovely sandy beach and the local village shop and the beach cafe. We enjoyed a very comfortable stay at Church View. Customer 51 (April 2009)
The property is in a beautiful location and has a very homely feeling to it which makes it an excellent place for relaxing in. Even though there is no garden to use with the property there is a football field just down the road for children to run and burn off excess energy (i have 3 boys under 9) and they love the place. Its our 2nd visit and this time around we found that the second bedroom has been refurbished and also the shower room and other bedroom repainted. A good walk to the beach only downside is the main road which you have to cross but you can park yr car up near the lighthouse/pitch and putt ground. Plenty things to do in surrounding region. Highly recommended by us. Customer 52 (May 2008)
Church view far exceeded our expectations, excellent. Customer 53 (April 2008)
We had a wonderful time at Church View a beautiful setting in a quiet village - the house was spacious for our 3 boys to run around (lack of garden did not spoil holiday but would have been great to have one). You have to cross main road to get to beach which is a 10-15 minute walk from property. A great base to see around the north west of Norfolk which has a lot of varying delights for all ages and interests. Customer 54 (August 2007)
