This is very local to me and having lived here for quite a few years I've never managed to visit! Probably because it's only open on a Wednesday afternoon. When you arrive you'll need to open the gate and drive down the long path, the parking area is very small but that said there was no problems parking. There isn't... More

This is VERY local to us but it is still really hard to find - gate off a busy road, hidden down a track across a field. The parking is a bit dodgy as the grass is a bit long and, after a rain shower, a bit slippery. The chapel is very simple but has a very calm atmosphere. One... More

We went to see the chapel built by the Knights Hospitallier but it has been so altered its integrity as a chapel is lost. We were told that one owner converted it to a house and kept the last 20 feet as a private chapel and a later owner made a door through a window and put in another floor... More

it is set in a surprisingly pretty garden just off a busy and very ordinary suburban street and the whole building is very handsome to look at from the outside, but the part open is a single room which is starkly white-washed and the information available is slight: for example there is little to help understand or envisage what would...

Lovely gardens, quite retreat in a busy area. Not much too do but that is the charm of the place. It would be nice to get a cup of tea.

Saying this venue is a "waste of time" is harsh. What it is not is Chartwell or Knowle. It is a very small chapel constructed at the end of a private house. Set amongst some very pleasant gardens and surrounded by the river one side and a moat on the other three. Let me begin. You will come across the... More

nothing to say about this place really as there was not a lot to see, its a sort of old church with a private house built on the side, which someone lives in, the garden is quite pretty but that about it really.

Privately rented NT property. Only the small part of the original Templar chapel remains. Lovely gardens and a real peaceful haven being just tucked away from the busy main road.Only open on Weds afternoons

I really enjoy spending time here , a very quiet spot and well worth a visit ,especially during their open afternoons in May when the Morris Dancers are wonderful.
