Fantastic family stay at Christmas
Absolutely loved this place! Off the main road with parking for 4 cars, if needed, the chapel ticked all our boxes! Beautifully clean with high quality furnishings, linens and drapes. Very well stocked with kitchen items and good quality pans. Good double oven and largish fridge freezer. Good WiFi and would imagine lovely to sit out in the gardens in the summer. Peaceful with occasional owl at night! Only problem was having to leave after one week!!

Quiet, lovely views but sadly not perfect I expected more
The place is quite lovely, however it's not perfect. Let down by grubby carpets and soft furnishings and faulty oven. I feel although there is a team of cleaners that cope quite well, there is no overall management to pick up on the red flags, or monitor maintenance and grounds better Lots of maintenance issues and security problem, so I would not stay again, even tho it is lovely, such a shame really.
