The Chapel on the Green is a lovely quirky property in a fabulous location. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners, who provided a delicious welcome basket, and gave excellent suggestions for places to go, places to eat, that all helped us make the most of our week.

We had a great time. The chapel is a lovely space and Glasbury is very pretty. We enjoyed some wild swimming from the little beach. We even saw a kingfisher and a jumping salmon by the river one morning.
