If you're looking for peace and tranquillity then this former chapel is perfect! Combining expansive scenic views, a delightful open log fire and quirky little touches. The Old Chapel is sure to soothe the soul.
Aptly named, The Old Chapel has been beautifully converted to mix the old and new, with original features and elegant contemporary furnishings. Located in a quiet, peaceful hamlet with a backdrop of the synonymous Uffington White Horse it's perfect for a family of four or two couples (plus their pet pooches!) looking for a break in the country.
Exposed brickwork, open log fire and rustic wooden floors are all mixed in with luxury touches, big snug beds and stunning views. Huge picture windows in the bedrooms and living areas frame the unspoilt views over the beautiful South Downs countryside.
The well-equipped kitchen with a wooden dining table and pew benches is a very sociable space. The light and airy sitting room boasts luxurious sofas, a cosy laid fire and French windows overlooking rural bliss. Upstairs, the two sumptuous double bedrooms have very comfortable beds and share a bathroom with a bath and separate shower.
In wonderful surroundings, there is a delightful cottage garden with paved path to the front and a small back garden with a tiny stream overlooking fields. Complete with seating and a barbecue, the garden is ideal for alfresco dining in the summer, or simply relaxing in the peaceful atmosphere with a refreshing drink.
