This beautifully restored Cotswold stone chapel sits within acres of established grounds and woodlands, a perfect retreat for all to enjoy whatever the time of year.

Sapperton is a picturesque Hamlet in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty above the valley where the River Frome runs, offering easy access to a wealth of gardens, National Trust and English Heritage sites. The Cotswold Way passes nearby for keen walkers, along with the historic canal with towpaths meandering through the valley into Stonehouse. For those looking for a little more adventure there is the Cotswold Gliding Club offering day courses. Gatcombe Park for enthusiastic eventers, Bath, Badminton, Tetbury and Cheltenham for the races, theatre and seasonal festivals to include the literature and food festival to name but a few. Take afternoon tea in Painswick with a visit to the Rococo garden. For those wishing to relax the acres of grounds make a peaceful haven.

Take in the peace and tranquillity as you wander to the original entrance of this former chapel. The main entrance gives way to the formal dining hall, with exposed stone walls, vaulted ceilings and a bespoke made wrought iron chandelier that simply finishes the room. The dining table can accommodate up to six guests and is great for entertaining. Take the stairs down to the ground floor where you will find the first snug a great place to hide with a good book or curling up on the sofa with a good movie on the TV. A larger lounge is also accessed via this small lobby with large sofas and armchairs, two wood burners set into original fireplaces are waiting to be lit. The kitchen/breakfast room enjoys the light from the gardens and is well-equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. A small table and chairs sit to the side and is a great base for breakfast and morning coffee. There is also a separate WC on this floor.

Very tastefully furnished and very comfortable. We used the kitchen facilities a quite a few times, had everything we needed. It had plenty of room for 6 adults and a dog. Loved the location, very peaceful and lovely wood next to cottage.

Reviewed by Peter, 23rd August 2019

The cottage was difficult to navigate with different levels and narrow passages Just too quirky for us!SELECTED!.!ENDOFSELECTED!

Reviewed by Philip, 16th April 2019

A delightful place that feels like youve stepped into another world. The house is comfortable and spacious and the adjoining woodland and walks around are all part of the magic.

Reviewed by Karen, 4th April 2019

We stayed here for 3 nights with our grown up children, their partners and our dog. It was perfect, plenty of room for all of us. The Old Chapel is a beautiful property, it is very remote but that is what we wanted. Lots of walking (to the pub!).

Reviewed by Lee, 9th February 2019

This is an amazing property, the location is quite remote but two pubs within a 45 minute walk or 10 minute drive are both really nice. The house itself is awesome, the dining is one of the most impressive Ive ever seen! The Sonos surround sound is an added bonus that isnt in the particulars.
