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. Similarly, outside space is nice but neglected and overgrown. Hide

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.

Unusual holiday home for two people in a beautiful location convenient for Hereford and Ledbury. The chapel is very comfortable and thoughtfully kitted out. The surroundings are lovely, especially the lake where one of us swam (not the dog who doesn't like water). Warning: the staircase up to the bedroom is steep.

A lovely, quirky mediaeval building renovated to a good standard and all the open space around was a bonus for excercsing the dog, who enjoyed a daily swim in the lake. The only negative I can think of is the steepness of the stairs, definitely not for the disabled.
