Stunning modern architectural design encompasses the restored ruins of this romantic Gothic chapel, all set in beautiful, idyllic countryside, just a fifteen minute drive away from the coast.

Stunning modern architectural design encompasses the restored ruins of this romantic Gothic chapel, all set in beautiful, idyllic countryside, just a fifteen minute drive away from the coast.

The ingenius blending of ancient ruins and contemporary, stylish design have transformed Thursford Castle into a unique and very special property. Located midway between the villages of Thursford and Great Snoring and discretely tucked away within a private, landscaped garden, this fabulous and supremely comfortable single-storey accommodation enjoys luxurious underfloor heating throughout and forms a glazed quadrangle, set around an inner landscaped courtyard garden, with the historic remains of a former chapel at its helm. Beautifully furnished and light-filled throughout, Thursford Castle deserves to be featured in a glossy interiors magazine.

Prepare to be impressed as you enter the castle through the heart of the old chapel into the sociable living area with beamed ceiling. Open-plan and spacious, with a bespoke and well-equipped kitchen at one end; a cosy sitting area with wall-mounted television at the other; and a large dining table dividing the two. Bi-folding doors, opening to the inner courtyard garden almost complete one side of the room and flood it with light. A double-sided wood burning stove, inset below the television, has a sliding glass door and a sophisticated integrated vent system dotted around the top of the room which circulates warm air. Behind the sitting room, sharing the warmth and light of the wood burning stove, is a relaxing snug where you can choose to be quiet, perhaps read a favourite book or catch up with a film or series on a widescreen Smart television with both surround sound and Sky. From this side of the house, a glazed hallway, again with bi-folding doors opening to the inner garden, leads to three en-suite bedrooms (two king-size and one twin) as well as a games room/study where the table football is bound to let off some competitive steam! The deluxe super-king size master suite sits alone at the opposite end of the house and enjoys its own glazed hallway on the right side of the main entrance.

Outside, choose to sit or dine in the pretty inner garden with gas barbecue; or enjoy a stroll around the large, landscaped gardens that surrounds the house. Quiet and very private, this is the owner's main and much loved home, whilst residing in separate, private accommodation - providing guests with the opportunity to share and enjoy their dream and inspired vision for saving a piece of history and bringing it back to life. Groups of friends, couples and families are all welcome to have the pleasure of enjoying this very special house - all to themselves!

Two Knapp 2-seater electric bikes are available for guest use during their stay. The bikes are designed to carry two people and are perfect for nipping two miles down the road into Walsingham, where you can explore the farm shop, local cafes and pubs. You can then head further afield to experience North Norfolk from a new perspective. Additional electric bikes are available to hire, by private arrangement, with the owner on arrival or pre-visit via www.torque-ebikes.co.uk. Route maps can be provided. This holiday at a glance
