poole pottery and disco lights!
We stayed in the Rainforest chapel for a week in February. Be warned that it gets cold even though the heating is on simply because of the size of the main room. Bring an extra blanket! The chapel is a huge space that has been really tastefully decorated with vintage furniture and pottery and glass decor. Throughout the chapel are remote controlled colour changing lights which can be turned on or off. We had great fun with these. They really give it that extra special touch and the main open plan living space is big enough to pull it off without being tacky. There was also a mezzanine level with twin beds, sofa and large tv with games console which gave us the option to spend the evening upstairs where it was more cosy or downstairs where it was more grand. There was also a really handy indian/chip shop very close to the chapel and some really beautiful forest walks nearby. Would thoroughly recommend a stay here to get away from it all.
