The photos don't do it justice. What an amazing place to stay. Much bigger than you think it will be and fantastic to wake in the morning and the only thing you can hear are the birds chattering. Would highly recommend.

Thank you for your lovely review Kerry and it was a pleasure for me to help with those last minute things before a wedding, and especially as your partner was the best man and needed assistance! Hope you'll be able to visit again in the future - you'll be very welcome.

The Chapel is a gorgeous little place (although much bigger than we imagined) and we enjoyed a lovely weekend, with our mini schnauzer, who loved the surrounding countryside! Sharon is a wonderful host and provided everything we could need for our stay! Highly recommended :)

Thanks for all your kind words Leah :) I'm really happy you all enjoyed your stay at The Old Chapel, which does indeed seem to have a Tardis-like spaciousness about it - other guests also mention this! Also glad you loved the local countryside; a wonderful area for walking.
