  • "We (a mixed group of adults and teens) absolutely LOVED Wesleyan House."

    It was really spacious with everything you needed and all of high quality. The outside area is a real suntrap and handy as next to the kitchen for drinks/snacks. The private parking space is a bit tight and I think a SUV would struggle - HOWEVER there is plenty of fee parking literally opposite the front door. We wouldn't hesitate to book again and hope to return again one day. Thank you so much for a memorable stay.

    Thank you so much for the lovely feedback We always love hearing how much guests enjoy our beautiful chapel Property Owner
