We had a perfect stay at the Chapel for our friends hen weekend. The lovely pictures do not do this place justice - Graham and Matthew have a created a beautiful space, marrying the traditional charm of the chapel with their boho style beautifully.

The house was as we expected and perfect for our needs. We had a lovely time and the hosts were really helpful and friendly. My only recommendation would be a note on the boiling tap in the kitchen. A couple of my party thought it was just the hot tap and scalded their fingers. Other than that it is a superb, quirky, comfortable and fun place. The Read morelocal pub does excellent food as well!

The chapel was a really interesting building and we felt at home immediately. We loved all the artwork and books. The beds were comfortable and the space was perfect for eight adults and our dog. We would definitely stay here again, we still have so much of the region to explore and this was the perfect base for a walking holiday.

Stunning accommodation, the Chapel was everything that we could have wished for, welcome basket on arrival, the size of the place was enormous, plenty of room for our family holiday and the chapel felt very homely everything we could have wanted.
