What Past Guests Are Saying
Large and warm and comfortable, what else is there
Only stayed one night to complete our break after being in the tower the other side of the nave. Its quality and cleanliness are just a larger version of the Tower House, made for full size dweling, so not as quirky as TH, If we'd known about it when the children wee children, it would have made a good place for exploring the locality. None of the impersonal stuff that the big rental outfits deal out - real people who care about your holiday - stay here and find out.
Great place to stay
I think this would have been my third stay here as it is close to family in Dunning when I visit from australia.
The Chapel house has 2 bedrooms, 2 en-suites, large very comfortable lounge, dining room kitchen, entrance hall with seats and cloakroom (very handy for snowy boots etc) plus out door seating plus shared games room, actually in the old chapel it's self. Add to all that, good hot water, WiFi and clothes washer it makes for a very well appointed holiday let.
Spacious outdoor area, so just great for kids.
Sounds like a advert but no, it is just the perfect place for my wife and I and other visiting family. The owners are extremely hospitable and helpful
Would I return? Yes, next week actually.

Thanks for this great review which is much appreciated - we love our repeat visitors and reward loyalty with repeat booking discounts. We're making a small kitchen upgrade next week, part of our ongoing process of investment in our holiday homes that we think are quite unique.
