Summary

The Old Chapel is a former small chapel, located close to the heart of the quintessential Cotswolds village of Northleach. This peaceful village benefits from a number of shops and restaurants, and is perfectly located for exploring the surrounding countryside or visiting the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds.

The Grade II listed, detached stone chapel has been beautifully converted, to create a unique and stylish holiday cottage, whilst retaining character features, including stone arches, stained glass windows and vaulted ceilings. The character of The Old Chapel is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a flatscreen TV and a modern kitchen.

The property sleeps a maximum of 4+1 people (with the +1 on a chair bed), in two bedrooms, with one bathroom and a downstairs cloakroom. There is an enclosed garden and off-street parking is available. The Old Chapel is an ideal retreat for friends, couples or a family, looking for a peaceful getaway.

Description

The grand front door of The Old Chapel opens into a good sized hallway. The ground floor rooms are:

•Living/dining room: A beautiful room, with stone arches, stained glass windows and wooden floors. There is comfy lounge seating for five, with a TV and DVD player, and there is a circular dining table, also with seating for five, set in the semi-circular 'apse' of the chapel;

•Kitchen: Accessed directly from the living/dining room, the modern kitchen contains a four ring electric hob, electric oven, fridge freezer, microwave, toaster and kettle;

•Downstairs cloakroom: Contains a toilet and a wash basin, as well as a washing machine and a tumble dryer.

A spiral staircase leads up from the hallway to the landing, off which are the following character filled rooms:

•Master bedroom: Contains a king size bed;

•Mezzanine bedroom: Contains a double bed and a chair bed, which can be made up into a small bed suitable for children, if required. This is a galleried room, which overlooks the living/dining room, enclosed only by a wooden rail;

•Family bathroom: Contains a bath, walk-in shower, toilet and wash basin.

The front door leads out into the gardens of The Old Chapel. There is a small lawned area to the front of the property, as well as a gravelled parking area to the front and side, with space for three cars. A gate at the side of the property leads through to the enclosed rear terrace, which contains a table and chairs, and a charcoal barbecue during the warmer months of the year.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This property was well suited for us and the Northleach location was ideal for the hiking vacation we had planned. We enjoyed our vacation but had some issues to contend with.

On arrival, the house was cold and adjusting the wall thermostat had no effect. Since there were no directions in the Welcome booklet about this we called the manager. She told us there was an electronic controller in a closet that the cleaning staff leaves in standby mode even though guests are expected. Adjusting this hidden controller warmed the house nicely.

We also had some continuing issues with the hot water system. This unit heats the water over night but then doesn’t activate again until either the tank is depleted or its night timer is triggered. This caused us problems since, as hikers, we did not need hot water until we returned in the evening by which time the stored water had cooled off rather significantly. Since this was a newly installed system, this particular quirk was not diagnosed for several days. Fortunately, there is a backup system that can be activated. It is our understanding that information explaining this feature has been added to the Welcome booklet.

As just stated, this problem affected our stay for several days. While the management company (CHHM) continued to work with us, ultimately it was the owner of the property who needed to compensate us for our inconvenience. The owner did finally respond to us, but it took him six weeks to do so.

The lowered rating we gave this property is due to the property owner’s slow response to our situation.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Cotswold vacation despite these problems. The Old Chapel is really a wonderful property in a great location.

Lovely Cotswolds Rental

  • 5 of 5

We came over from the US specifically to visit the Cotswolds. The old chapel in Northleach was the perfect location. We visited many surrounding towns and villages of Stratford-Upon-Avon, Chipping Campden, Gloucester, etc. Gifford's Circus is a must-see. Sudeley Castle was also a great place to see (Gifford's Circus performed on the grounds of the castle). I now want to move to Northleach. Everyone was so warm and friendly. Due to the spiral staircase I would not recommend this place for young children (5 and younger) or the elderly (unless they want to sleep downstairs on the couch). More seating would be nice...just one additional comfy chair.

Peaceful and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We spent 6 wonderful nights at this chapel. The village is charming and unspoilt by tourism. This is a perfect base to explore The Cotswolds and make day trips to places a little further afield.

The chapel had everything we needed and was comfortable.

I would happily stay here again and recommend to friends.

Thank you for a great stay.
