“A Special Place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have an unusual family! Two little kids and two grown up kids and a permanent wheel chair using Daddy! Finding a place , not only big enough for the 6 of us , but one that accommodates a disabled person and isn't ugly - is a major undertaking! However The Old Chapel ticks all the boxes, beautiful property, so well planned and renovated. A sheer delight, quiet but central enough for tourist activities! Already booked for next year! Well done Fraser and Rebecca!

“Beautiful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The Old chapel is a unique and beautiful place to stay. Arriving on a cold and wet day it was nice to be able to have the wood burner blazing within minutes of us getting there. We used this loads and it warmed the place beautifully - there was ample fuel provided too. The garden was a particular delight and both myself and my grandson loved it . the old chapel gave us plenty to smile about, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend the old chapel to anyone who is looking for a tranquil place to stay.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Second visit to property and again, wonderful. Arrived to a warm welcome with the log fire up and running and a fantastic Victoria (home made) sponge cake. Visited with my cousin from Canada, Margaret and Dave. (they loved it) also in the party my other cousin Malcolm and Karen with lovely little Jack (he loved the adventure with his new mate Ian) not forgetting us Kevin Margaret and Ian. Lots of smashing home made food, thanks to my wonderful wife (always in the kitchen) Will return. thanks.

This is a beautiful place to stay. It has lovely views of the Lakeland fells, a superb interior and lovely quaint country cottage garden. The owners were very efficient with booking etc. we even had homemade chocolate brownies on arrival. Thank you for a very pleasant stay.

“Totally fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Myself and my family had the most amazing time in the 2 weeks we stayed at the Old Chapel! We were greeted by a lovely light fire by the owner? And I must say such a beautiful welcome, the owners could not have been nicer? The house itself was spotless and had everything u would need for such a comfortable holiday! Hotel standard! Just what u need with children! Our little boy loved playing in the den at the top of the most amazing garden! We are returning to the old chapel for Christmas! As we just totally loved it! Thanks Fraser and Rebecca!

“One of the best we have stayed in”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Well what a excellent weekend stay in a fantastic converted chapel, with many features you would expect from a chapel but with all the mod cons you would want in a holiday home.
Property very very clean (which is not always the case having stayed in a few holiday homes over the years). Log fire easy to use and kicks out some heat. Top quality kitchen, showers and all other facilities 100% we even had access to the fruit and veg growing in the garden and green house, how nice is that. All in all a great short break. Property suitable for families, young and old and even that romantic break away from it all. Many thanks Kevin and family with friends.
