  • "We had a lovely week."

    The house was very homely, clean and well furnished, and so interesting historically. The owner was so friendly and helpful, when she popped in a couple of times we would have welcomed her company for a longer visit. We would definitely visit again.

  • "We loved Chapel House - as other reviews have stated, it is much nicer than expected from the photographs."

    The property is very spacious, warm and characterful and a really good price for the size and quality. I was expecting it to be a bit draughty and chilly, especially at night, seeing as it was November and it is a such a big old house, but it was extremely cosy at all times. The bed was king size and extremely comfortable. It would be useful to have a shower in the main bathroom and there were bits missing from most of the games upstairs but we didn't use them anyway. We had a lovely break and would thoroughly recommend this property.

  • "We couldn’t wish for a better, more comfortable and spacious house."

    It was so warm, cosy and had everything we needed (very well equipped). The location is great, close to all the places we wanted to see in Cotswolds. Our two 14y.olds have enjoyed having the whole floor / game room to themselves. The kitchen has everything you might wish for. All the rooms are gorgeous with original features and lots of character. The surrounding area is very nice and peaceful. The grounds are really well looked after, with gas BBQ, garden table and chairs, very pretty. Very happy with our choice, hope to stay there again!

    A great stay in a beautifully renovated character house with easy access to excellent walks and beautiful countryside in very easy driving distance.

    Felt like a princess. The owner Margaret was always lovely and helpful. Easy access to surrounding countryside and beautiful villages, plenty places to see and keep you occupied. Myself and my friends would definitely stay here again. Great experience

  • "I have used a number of companies that facilitate self catering cottages and all have been really good however i have to say Sykes cottages seem to have gone that extra bit further."

    I was updated prior to the holiday and received useful information on what I could do or see whilst on holiday. I received welcome messages on the day of arrival with useful contact information if i had any questions. Then emails on wishing me a good holiday and reminders on the procedures when leaving at the end of the holiday. Some could say that this was overbearing however it was far from it. All emails where easy to follow and very helpful and let me just worry about enjoying my holiday. I respect of the cottage it far exceeded expectations, ok not in the most picturesque places in The Cotswolds but that not the point. We needed an comfortable, safe clean and and relaxing cottage. This was spot on and with extras, there were rooms we could all stretch out in and rooms to hide away and relax and all so comfortable.

    Very spacious & full of old world charm. Very well equipped kichen/utility. Lovely, comfy lounge with a great dining area. Bedrooms big with plenty of storage. There was only one shower - but it was excellent. Lovely garden, only downside was the weather, it prevented us from using the BBQ!

    We all enjoyed the quirky style of the house and my 2 teenage children particularly enjoyed their den on the 3rd floor, equipped with a pool table, table tennis, a big tv and even their own shower room. Highly recommend this house and thank you very much to the very friendly host Margaret.

Chapel House And Cottage

Nestled on the outskirts of the pretty village of Leonard Stanley, a few miles from the bustling market town of Stroud in the Gloucestershire countryside, are these two charming stone cottages. These heart-warming cottages are steeped in history and benefit from some of their original features such as their exposed beams. Spend your evenings in the sitting rooms and cosy up with your loved ones reminiscing about the day's events whilst the TV hums in the background. Discover the farmhouse-style kitchens, complete with all the necessary appliances for cooking up some delicious meals, whilst the dining areas are perfect for gathering of an evening and toasting to a wonderful holiday. You can choose from a range of bedrooms, all individually styled with furniture for storing your personal belongings and bathrooms for enjoying a refreshing soak in the tub at the end of a tiring day. There is a small communal gravelled garden where you can take a cup of tea in the morning and watch the sun rise with a good look in hand, or dine alfresco. Set on the outside fringes of the Cotswolds AONB, there are a number of trails for walking and cycling opportunities to get involved with such as the Laurie Lee Wildlife Way and Stroudwater Canal Walk. Make sure you visit the nearby town of Stroud for its award-winning farmer's market, considered to be one of the most popular in the UK. The Stroud district is home to a range of historic houses, such as the 12th century Berkeley Castle, the Elizabethan Manor House of Chavenage House and the Grade listed Frampton Court. There are a number of golf courses within driving distance for those keen golfers or those just wanting a fun-filled afternoon, whilst the keen watersporters can enjoy a coat trip at the Cotswold Canal Trust. Chapel House and Cottage is the perfect place to stay in order to access many of the Cotswolds' finest sights.
