Stayed in October for a week... it was an absolute dream. A cake baked for arrival, spacious and clean. The hot tub and log fire were amazing. My partner, son and dog all feel the same. (Didnt smell like dog) The views are brilliant. It had literally every thing we needed from washing machine to a slow cooker. Plenty of walks in the area, stiperstones inn - great food, drink and service. There is also a little village shop selling most things. I would definately return as we were so sad to leave. My only critics that can't be altered or changed is the parking. Only just room for one car... You are able to leave your car at the stiperstones inn and also being 7 months pregnant I hadn't expected so many steep hills so be warned in icy conditions if you are to go winter time. I really can't praise this place enough.

Perfect weekend retreat
This was booked for a cold and wet weekend in January but it was an excellent choice. The hot tub was a real attraction and the cottage had absolutely everything that was needed, even things not often found in other holiday rentals. Great owners who work nearby, making it easy to pick up the keys and would have been great if there had been any problems ... but there were none. Being able to walk to the pub was a real bonus and an excellent time was had by all!

3rd stay at a stunning character property
As stated in the title,this is now our third stay at the old chapel,a truly individual property set in a stunning location. A large vaulted living room with huge log burner creates a very relaxing atmosphere,our Malamute dog loves to lie by the glazed window looking out into the country side waiting to go up the hills again. The kitchen is well equipped,bedrooms and bathrooms are in excellent order,there's adequate parking for a large car (we were in a crew cab pick up),though you are better to drive past the chapel turn around and reverse in to park. Shrewsbury is in easy reach,as is Oswestry,Welshpool,Newtown,church Stretton and the very appealing Montgommery with its lovely ruined castle. Another great asset in its location is the pub (Stiperstones Inn) which does great food,and possibly the 8th wonder of the world aka Johns shop where you can buy anything from a pair of wellies a pack of sausages or a set of screwdrivers !. A great place to stay and we have already booked in for 2017 and 2018. LOVE IT.

The location was excellent and the cottage was beautiful. Loved the fact that it was secluded and there were walks right on the doorstep. The hot tub was lovely as was the garden.
Mrs Adams

Liked absolutely everything. The owners love and passion for The Old Chapel and garden was apparent as soon as we entered the property. We and our two dogs enjoyed the scenic walks and especially looked forward to a soak in the hot tub, overlooking the most beautiful countryside. We couldn't have asked for better.
