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.

The old Chapel is a very nice and historically interesting cottage. It is located in Fulbourn; a village with easy access to Cambridge, surrounding villages and the Duxford Imperial War museum.

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.

About the neighbourhood
The village of Fulbourn is mentioned in the Doomsday book and still has many ancient buildings. The village centre is only a few minutes walk away and has good pubs (all serving food) and local shops. The butcher and greengrocer sell excellent local produce.

Cambridge University, only 5 miles away, is one of the oldest and most famous universities in the world. The city of Cambridge also has a good selection of shops and attractive parks and walks along the river Cam. Punting on the river is a traditional way to spend warm summer afternoons.

Cambridge is famous for its cycling and we provide 2 bicycles which you can use to travel to and around the city.

The Imperial War Museum and Duxford is a great day out where you can go round and even inside the aircraft.
