Very spacious accommodation
We stayed at this cottage last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The accommodation is very spacious and upon arrival exceptionally clean. There were many thoughtful extras in the property, including kitchen items, plenty of towels instead of the usual one each and although we didn't get to meet the owners, they had left us a lovely cake, so we were happy. There is a well stocked shop in this quiet village, and Pocklington is easy to get to for more shops and supermarkets. Overall a very enjoyable break.

Spacious property in need of TLC
Spacious, airy property in a delightful village setting. The seating is uncomfortable and seat pads to the sofas need attention. The Extractor fan/light was not working nor a strip light over the counter worktop in the kitchen, it was difficult to see the dial settings on the hob (had to use a torch)! I note that in October 2015 that a reviewer also complained regarding the seating and nearly 12 months down the line the sofas are no better. Reported the lighting issue to the owners the day before we left and it was three full days before a response was received.

Great place for walks and relaxation
We found the Old Chapel to be the perfect base, for exploring East Yorkshire and the east coast. The Chapel itself was a delight to stay in, comfortable and relaxing, with plenty of space in which to relax. The Village and local area provided ample opportunity for walking, which always seemed to lead to the excellent Village pub.

Absolutely fantastic!
This is the second year in a row we've stayed at the Chapel and once again it has not let us down. I only wish that it was my permanent residence as its so beautiful! The village itself is quiet and very friendly. There are plenty of walks to do, as well visiting local attractions such as York and the Eden Camp. We would definitely come again and make it a third year running. The rooms are spotless, both years we've been greeted with a cake on arrival which after a 4 hour drive was perfect with a cup of tea! Pet friendly too which is great for our little cavapoo - the outside courtyard was perfect for having a drink outside in the summer sun! I could go on more but I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a calm, peaceful yet stylish and modern get away :)

We fell in love with The Old Chapel; it's just a beautiful home inside and out. It's set in lovely surroundings. The village itself is charming with very friendly people. We had a wonderful holiday and would definitely stay again.
