Welcome to the Old Chapel in Slad, Gloucestershire; a luxury self catering Cotswolds holiday rental, with a stylish, contemporary interior. Described by The Guardian as 'one of the best cool holiday self-catering accommodations in the Cotswolds...it's both homely and stylish.' This characterful holiday home, a spacious converted Cotswolds chapel, is set on the slopes of the Slad Valley in the heart of the Cotswold Hills, one of the most picturesque and unspoilt locations in England. It is available for holiday rentals and short breaks all year. The hamlet of Slad, immortalised by Laurie Lee in 'Cider with Rosie', boasts glorious views, endless great walks and one of the best pubs in the Cotswolds - The Woolpack, just 300 metres from The Old Chapel.

Described by The Guardian as 'one of the best cool holiday self-catering accommodations in the Cotswolds...it's both homely and stylish.' This characterful holiday home, a spacious converted Cotswolds chapel, is set on the slopes of the Slad Valley in the heart of the Cotswold Hills, one of the most picturesque and unspoilt locations in England. It is available for holiday rentals and short breaks all year. The hamlet of Slad, immortalised by Laurie Lee in 'Cider with Rosie', boasts glorious views, endless great walks and one of the best pubs in the Cotswolds - The Woolpack, just 300 metres from The Old Chapel. Built in 1865, the converted old chapel is stylishly furnished without being contrived. The furniture is a mix of antique, retro and contemporary. It offers very comfortable self-catering holiday accommodation for up to 10 guests (no more than 8 adults) and is ideal for two families to share. The owners continuously maintain the Old Chapel to a high standard. Home comforts include a large and very well equipped kitchen-dining room and a huge open-plan living space with wood-burning stove. Separate TV areas for you and the kids, with smart TV, Playstation and high-speed broadband. With a wonderfully quirky graveyard in the garden the Old Chapel is a long way from your usual self catering Cotswolds holiday cottage. Surrounded by wild flowered meadows, ancient woodland and rolling hills, with breath-taking views and walks directly from the front door, this is an ideal self-catering base for Gloucestershire walking holidays, and is well-positioned for visiting other parts of the Cotswolds, and towns such as Bath and Cirencester. It is available for long weekends, one week and two-week breaks.More

Absolutely brilliant, facilities excellent, host couldn’t do enough and the views are amazing. Local pub also served good food. Had Ocado delivered so cooked a lot as well. V handy as so close to Stroud and good railway service to Paddington. Would highly recommend.
