2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
Fulbourn, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England
The Old Chapel is a cosy 2 bedroom cottage converted from an 1855 Baptist Chapel. It sits well back from the quiet road in a large garden shared with the owners who live next door.

The original front door opens onto a sitting room with a sofa and double sofa-bed, TV and DVD, internet, iPod dock and radio. Off the sitting room is the dining area which seats 4 and a well stocked kitchen with hob/oven, fridge/freezer, washer/drier, microwave, kettle, toaster, etc.

Upstairs there is a large double and small single bedroom and family bathroom with bath and shower attachment. The double bed has a feather duvet. We also have a travel cot and high chair if you need it. We also have extra folding dining chairs if you have guests.

We enjoyed staying here. The house had loads of character and a beautiful garden. I really wanted to give it 5 stars, but there were a few things that just brought it down. Kitchen - well equipped, however the gas stove took some getting used to. The kettle was covered in limescale, which we managed to mostly sort out. Lots...

Management response:

Dear Bob, Thanks so much for your kind review and we’re delighted that you enjoyed your stay. We normally check all the pots, pans, crockery and cutlery between guests, so we’re extremely sorry that somehow the cutlery didn’t get thoroughly checked this time. We’ve descaled the kettle since your stay and we're looking at the curtain situation so that we...

Additional amenities & feature info
The double sofa bed in the sitting room allows for another couple to stay if necessary, though we would not recommend anyone plans to stay on the sofa for a prolonged period!. There is also an extra single mattress in the little bedroom. This can suit two small children who can then share this room--however it is pretty small.

We now have a brand new central heating boiler to keep the Old Chapel cosy in winter and provide lashings of hot water. The bathroom has been newly refurbished with a brand new shower.
