  • "The Old Chapel is truely delightful."

    Its conversion has been done to a very high standard. We were very comfortable with lovely bed and bedding. The shower was very good and the shower gell and body lotion were lovely. I am tempted to buy some myself. The selection of goodies to welcome us was very thoughtful. Dorstone is a great village and the Pandy Inn well worth a visit.

  • "This is a beautifully converted chapel, with lovely and characterful accommodation."

    It is excellently appointed and we would definitely come again. We have high standards with regards to holiday cottages and this is one of the best we have stayed in. Dorstone is a very attractive village too.

  • "Lovely converted chapel, very well furnished and laid out."

    The owners live next door and are on hand if you need them but don’t intrude, the wine was just what I needed after a long drive, thank you. The pub is only a couple of minutes walk away and does some lovely food with generous portions. Great place to stay, definitely recommend.
