Thank you for the lovely review. We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Old Chapel.
This is a glorious and spacious home in a renovated chapel. Quite unique.
Wonderful home in a converted chapel. Very spacious and great amenities, beds and linen etc as well as a well equipped kitchen. The location is stunning - art in the Slad valley. Great walks and lots of beautiful villages to visit.
OUTSTANDING! The Old Chapel is remarkable. The views...The modernity of the interior is brilliant.
3 families shared this beautiful old building. The appointments were superb. The area is quintessential Cotswolds. The manager, Debra, is extremely responsive and reliable. Highly recommend!
Such a comfy stay
This is a beautiful place. Cozy beds. Cheerful decoration. Amazing kitchen. We loved our stay. Thank you so much!!
Like a fairy tale come true
My family (myself and my spouse, our two young boys, and my parents) stayed at the Old Chapel during the last week of May, 2018, while on holiday to celebrate my father’s birthday and my parents’ anniversary. It was a magical home-away-from-home, and we had a wonderful time.
The Old Chapel is a place of stunning beauty, inside and out. We happened to stay during the height of springtime, so were there to witness the superabundance of flowers that envelope the property this time of year — wisteria, lilac, roses, honeysuckles; sitting in the gardens was a heady experience. Indoors, the converted space is impeccably styled with eclectic and whimsical taste, and is a perfectly comfortable place for family relaxation — every detail has been considered for the comfort of guests. The rooms are airy and bright, some lit by the church’s original rosette-windows; wonderful beds with with sumptuous bedding; the bathrooms are modern and have good water-pressure. The kitchen is outstanding — an enormous, beautifully designed space equipped with every tool you need to produce a restaurant-quality feast. Overall, the atmosphere is calm and cheerful, with new details of decoration and design to catch the eye at every glance (art-lovers are in for a special treat).
All of this, and I haven’t yet mentioned the bucolic views of the sheep-dotted hills and hedgerows to be met in every direction, the immediate proximity to the various places of literary renown around the village of Slad (thanks to local author Laurie Lee’s memoirs), and the Woolpack pub less than 5 minutes down the road… it would be hard to create a more perfect place to stay while visiting the Cotswolds, or anywhere else.
Thank you so much for the lovely review and I am delighted that you all enjoyed your time relaxing at the Old Chapel.
We look forward to welcoming you all back one day.
Amazing property in a stunning location
The Old Chapel in Slad is a fantastic holiday home. We arrived with the family on Friday and loved every minute of our weekend. The house is beautifully positioned with a great outdoor space. The inside is beautifully kept and decorated and well stocked for all of our needs. There are lovely walks on the doorstep and the Woolpack pub just down the road is certainly worth a visit. Stroud town is only a 5 minute drive and the farmer market on Saturday was well worth visiting. Would recommend to anyone who loves this area of the Cotswolds.
We are so pleased you had a great time, thank you.
The Cotswolds is designated as England's largest 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' – as an area it’s 100 miles north to south.
Here in the South-West Cotswolds the area has a slightly wilder nature, especially in the five beautiful valleys around Stroud, of which Slad Valley is considered the most unspoiled. These are the real Cotswold Hills; nature reserves, meadows, wild orchids, steep climbs and wonderful views, away from the crowds of tourists you find in north Gloucestershire.
Two miles away is Painswick, 'Queen of the Cotswolds', one of many beautiful villages in the area. The Rococo Garden is a must, and you have a choice of stunning mansions, abbeys and castles within a short drive.
Closer to home - a 2 minute walk away - is the famous Woolpack Inn, a timeless pub that serves fantastic food and ales and one of the best views you can imagine.
Nearby Stroud has an award-winning farmers' market on Saturdays, and swimming, cinema and bowling to keep children happy.
Other Activities: horse riding, golf, hiking, country pubs, gliding, shooting, dry-slope skiing.
