Kitchen too small although well equipped really would benefit from a dishwasher.
Nowhere to put clothes away, no wardrobes or drawers which was very disappointing.
Having said that the furnishings, decoration etc.. were excellent a really comfortable stay which we all really enjoyed.

Excellent large accomodation for a big family group or group of friends, we stayed with four other adult couples (and 2 dogs!) and managed perfectly well for a long weekend.
Excellent location in the centre of the village, lots of shops and pubs/restaurants nearby and loads of great walks on the doorstep.
The accomodation is spotlessly clean and well stocked with everything you might need for a home from home break.
great accomodation...lovely area...good and friendly pubs.

We all loved the OldChapel Post House. It was clean and warm with lovely views. The location was also lovely with many walks. Shops and pubs nearby. We all loved the friendly pubs with their open fires. We had two small dogs in our party and we were made to feel welcome with them.
The only negative was no freezer.

Nice property, well equipped, comfy beds, there was only really 2 things that were a let down, firstly the property is advertised as 4x doubles and 1x twin that can be made into a double upon request, we requested 5x doubles but on arrival we had 4x doubles 1x twin, there was no way to make the 2 singles into a 'locked' double so they just had to be pushed together, so its not really and never will be a 'double'. The other problem was that there is an adjacent 2 person cottage (which can be rented via Sykes) and the occupants of that were playing loud music long into the early hours, we're talking 4 and 5am, on 2 or 3 nights which took the gloss off what was otherwise an enjoyable stay. I think Sykes need to take more care of who they offer lets to and if it wasn't them that let the small cottage then they need to contact the owners or drop it from their portfolio.
