The Old Chapel is situated up a small lane, right next to woodland in the Royal Forest of Dean with wonderful walks right on the doorstep. It has been sympathetically converted retaining much character and charm. There is lots of pine cladding on both walls and ceilings. Most of the accommodation is on the ground floor, with the exception of the galleried bedroom which overlooks the lounge.

The Old Chapel exudes a feeling of peace, calm and tranquility; a place where you can get in touch with your soul.

Situated in a very central location for exploring the forest of Dean and has every thing and more you could need. Very good living... more
