We had a very nice stay at The Chapel which has been sympathetically restored & has great character. The property was warm, comfortable & well equipped with a good, modern shower room.

A picturesque and cozy getaway on the grounds of what was once a country estate, this well-furnished and thoroughly modernised chapel is the ideal getaway cottage for a couple in search of a romantic getaway. NB the stairs to the first floor are quite steep, so perhaps not for those who struggle with that sort of thing

Great location, a place to chill. Views from cottage qintessentially rural England with delightful sunsets across the lake. The accommodation is furnished to a high standard and is comfortable, cosy and warm. The situation of the cottage and its immediate surroundings give a good sense of privacy. It is adjacent to a working farm. The kitchen, sittRead moreing room and bedroom are all on seperate floors, and the stairs to the bedroom/bathroom are steep. Those 6' plus beware of beams.

Dating back to the mid 1400 this is a characterful old Chapel modernised over 3 floors with all mod cons. Lovely views over the pond and summer house with boat and canoes available to mess about on the water.

We loved our stay. The chapel was in such a fabulous position , looking out across the pond watching the ducklings was a delight, as was having a relaxing cup of tea in the sheltered areas. It was an ideal stay with our dog and we walked for miles taking different routes from the door each day. It was very well furnished and equipped and extremely Read morecomfortable. There are also a few very welcoming pubs an easy walk across field which was a bonus! The WiFi was excellent allowing me to study. Hide

We just spend a lovely 5 days at the Chapel and absolutely loved it. Very cosy and well equipped. The Chapel is absolutely perfect for 2 and whilst (yes) the steps to the bedroom are steep, and the kitchen ceiling low, it was no issue at all and my wife and I are tall. The surrounding countryside is beautiful with fantastic walks in the nearby MalvRead moreern Hills. We had a great time and would certainly return. Hide

The chapel was fabulous and in a lovely spot. The only sounds we heard at night were owls. There was a pub in the next village. Great if you want to walk around the area or just have a quiet place to stay. The only negative thing to say is that the stairs to the bedroom are very steep.

Beautiful little cottage, very comfortable and cosy in a very private location. Whilst the grounds are shared with 2 other cottages, the grounds are so extensive that we didn't feel they intruded on us at all. There are 2 nice pubs within walking distance and a scenic public footpath which takes you into the village to avoid the busy(ish) main roadRead more. The stairs are very steep up to the bedroom but it didn't cause us a problem. A little gem. Hide

This was a stunning property and location. Very well equipped and very comfortable. Be aware if you are tall this is an old building and the kitchen ceiling is low and the stairs to the bedroom steep. We worked around that fine tho both being tall we had to duck in the kitchen. We would return because it's a unique property and so quiet we relaxed Read moreso easily. Highly rated. Hide

This is a beautiful chapel cottage which has a lot going for it. It has amazing views to the front. I really wanted to write an outstanding review for this place but you can't help feeling that the place has been neglected. The biggest let down was the cleanliness of the property. I would have expected in the current climate that it would have beenRead more spotless. Unfortunately it was not - it was pretty superficially cleaned.

A lovely characterful property, ideal for a romantic getaway. The property is well equipped including good WiFi and TV facilities; even a priest hole! The only caveat is that you need to be able to climb the stairs / steps up into the bedroom which are steeper that the average staircase.

Superb character building with great views across the estate and lake. Cosy and quiet, ideal for a weekend break. The cottage has been fitted to a high standard and we appreciated thoughtful touches such as the local eggs and coffee cake.
