The kitchen area is also well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Venturing back down the stairs and onto the ground floor, a useful utility room with washer/dryer has also been provided and is located by the separate study room with a desk, leather chair and extensive views of the countryside.

We stayed here as a group of 8 along with two 16 month olds and 3 dogs. The place is absolutely stunning and there was so much room for all of us. It did not feel cramped at all. We would definitely consider staying here again. The only thing that was a bit tricky for us was the location as its quite far away from a supermarket. More because of neeRead moreding things for the little ones. Would highly recommend staying here. Hide

James Chapel is very spacious- well equipped with everything we needed. Beautiful views across the countryside. Location is very quiet which suited us perfectly but it is a short drive to the nearest amenities which may be a drawback for some people. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The house was lovely - plenty of room for our party of 3 adults, 2 children and 3 dogs. The beds were very comfortable which is always a bonus in a holiday let!
