The Old Chapel is a delightful high standard B & B. Sue & Phil are so welcoming and accommodating. This is our 3rd visit and will come again. Lots to see and do in the area and Phil is a great source of knowledge. The breakfasts are amazing as are the views. This is a wonderful spot to relax, unwind... More

Breakfast was well-presented & excellent. The area is very quiet & only a short walk to the centre of town where we had a v.g. dinner in the... More

We loved staying at the Old Chapel, it is a very fine and tasteful conversion with the most amazing views from the upstairs living room. We were made to feel like welcome guests rather than paying visitors. The bedrooms are large and tasteful decorated. The bed was huge and comfortable. Breakfast was divine. I don't think I have felt so... More

High spec bathroom and conveniences all around. Beautiful building and great views, the shared common areas are magnificent as is the made to measure breakfast. Quality screams everywhere.

As a long time business traveller, it was very refreshing to be given such a warm welcome here (and we had only booked that day). Everything about this stay was comfortable, the room, the bed and the breakfast was first class. And Shaftesbury is a delightful town and well worth a visit.

A very unusual B&B fantastic room, spotlessly clean. Only stayed one night but wished we could have stayed longer. The guest sitting room had incredible views over 3 counties and the breakfast was a choice of fresh fruit, cereals & full english or continental if required. The hosts were friendly & helpful with a store of local information They have... More

My wife and I stopped at The Old Chapel for just one night in June while sightseeing in SW England. We were welcomed warmly by our hosts Sue & Phil. I gather that the former chapel has undergone several transitions over the years, but the last by Phil has created a wonderful guest-only upper level which is very visually appealing.... More

Exceptional accommodation for a b and b and hosts are very welcoming and helpful. Spoils you for anywhere else. Close to a local pub but quiet location. Town 10 mins walk. Surely a first choice for a stay in the town.
