“Superb cottage, perfect for our christmas.”

We booked our christmas break at chapel cottage early last year and communication with Tim and Alison has been excellent, nothing was a problem. The cottage is absolutely idilic for a warm and cosy christmas break, great log burner with an endless supply of logs, fantastically equipped kitchen for cooking the perfect roast dinner. The only thing that was missing was the snow for that extra christmassy feel. We would throughly recommend this cottage if you just want to get away from things and relax which is what we did. All surrounding local pubs were excellent with great food too. This cottage must be stunning in the summer!
A big thank you to Tim and Alison.

Perfect!

“Perfect Best Ever Holiday Home”

We spent a week here as a family of three - 2 adults and one 7 year old. I can honestly say this is the best place we have stayed in. We received a warm welcome. Tim and Alison couldn't have been more helpful both when making a booking and when we arrived .
The cottage has character and is very charming. It is very well equipped and has everything you could need including even toys and games for children. It's in a very quiet location. We love the fact that the bedrooms are dark at night thanks to the thick curtains. It's in a great location - everything we wanted to see and do was between 30-60 minutes drive away.
We would happily stay here again and recommend it to all.

We were made very welcome at the beginning of our stay in this beautiful cottage seeped in history. Even before we arrived the owners answered all our queries and made booking so easy. We arrived late but the owner cheerfully showed us around the cottage which was even better than on the photographs.
It is a long time since I have had a week of such good nights' sleep. The mattresses were so comfortable and everything was spick and span.
The garden was lovely and our little dog loved it. The weather was good for us and it was so nice to be living in such a pleasant village.

“Picture perfect cottage, fantastic facilities.”

We spent this half term at Chapel Cottage with our 2 young boys and the grandparents and had the most fantastic time.
Chapel Cottage is all you would hope from a pretty thatched cottage. It has flowers growing round the door, a wooden porch and mullioned windows.
Inside there are 2 staircases one wood one stone and a lovely wood burning stove in the lounge. It is cosy and inviting.
However the kitchen is a big surprise as it has all the mod cons you could ask for and plenty of room to sit and chat over breakfast or whilst cooking dinner.
Tim and Alison are kind and friendly and gave us advice as to which site s to see in the area, of which there are many.
A thoroughly enjoyable stay.

We had a weekend break at Chapel Cottage with three children and a dog. It is located in a quiet, pretty village with a large garden available to guests.
Our hosts could not have been more welcoming, including the offer of taking a supermarket delivery of shopping if required!
The cottage itself was fantastic -- absolutely beautiful and fantastically well equipped. It was clean throughout with plenty of towels, bedding and lots of logs for the wood burning stove.
I could not recommend this property highly enough.

A very pleasant week with kids 8 & 10 (and Grandma) happy and occupied by local sites in spite of uncertain weather. The cottage is very attractive, has been recently redecorated and is very well equipped. There's loads to do in the area and lots of good friendly pub's for lunch and diner. We were well received by Tim and Alison, and help is at hand if required. Most definitely recommend it.
