    • “Stairs to bedrooms not suitable for anybody having difficulties with climbing stairs and not suitable for children. There is no TV so make sure you have your own set with signal by wifi. The bedrooms are quite small and being in the roof angles can be a little tricky. That said the owners live next door very pleasant and helpful and provided an excellent cake to welcome us to the property. The facilities provided are more than adequate and of very good quality and the property is quiet and calm.Unique features excellent underfloor heating and wood burner if you want to use it. Nice small outside sitting area that catches the morning sun. Lots to do around the area and beautiful countryside.”

    • “The Chapel was in the perfect location for us, near to all the things we wanted to do, and lovely and comfortable to come back to at the end of the day.”

    Mrs Mordue, NORTHAMPTON, May 2018

    • “Simon and Teresa put a very personal touch to our arrival. A cake, flowers and handmade soaps. A wonderful and unexpected surprise. They were very helpful and friendly. Offering advise on cycle routes, places to visit and pubs! We very much enjoyed staying at the Chapel. It was an excellent base and allowed us easy access to Dorset's many attractions. The Chapel is an amazing place to stay in, and it was lovely to meet Simon and Teresa”
