    Property description
    West Down
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    OLD CHAPEL is one of those real gems that cannot be missed when considering your holiday. Lovingly converted from an original Chapel, it has a wealth of original features and tremendous charm. This includes the magnificent conversion of the pulpit into a quality wooden staircase, original and new stain glass feature windows, double volume beamed ceilings and even some of the original pews. The owner of this home has taken great care to collect sympathetic articles to enhance the character and warmth of this home.

    As you enter the OLD CHAPEL KNOWLE through the large original double church doors, you are immediately greeted by the cavernous space and height of this property.
    Down the passage you enter the enormous double lounge on two levels, where th...

Also a large courtyard and an elevated garden and deck. Inside the property has been filled with period items that enhance the ambiance. Also the pub just... more

We had an absolute ball staying in this huge, beautiful chapel. With two different wings and a mezzanine balcony, it was easy to play lord of the manor; when we weren't playing pool, bagatelle or any of the other games hidden away here. We were dining a huge estate and access to the private parking area was a squeeze but... more

We just loved it. A largeish Chapel which has real character, it would have been big enough for a family of five but we didn't feel as if we were rattling. It was in a lovely quiet village which was bag dark at night, 3 doors up from the local pub. It was getting autumnal when we arrived so we...
