  • "A lovely chapel in an amazing location, located up a single lane the property has so much history and character, the views from the rear garden are amazing and offer so much rest and relaxation."

    The hot tub is fantastic and we spent numerous hours relaxing in there. The local pub is only a short walk away, the food was delightful with very reasonable prices and the local shop which is attached to the pub is a little golden nugget and had everything you need and more. I stayed at the property with my partners parents and our two young children, the only real issue was the noise of the upstairs floorboards which I know cannot be altered due to the age of the property but may be a consideration for people with young family’s. Overall the property is located in a peaceful and relaxing setting where you can sit back and recoup. Would highly recommend!!

  • "Excellent quirky property."

    Had everything you might need. The owners have obviously put in a lot of thought. Lemon drizzle cake on arrival along with bread and milk was a nice touch. Shame we were unable to use decking area due to weather. Would love to return

  • "Fantastic find!"

    Beautiful scenery, short walk to a great pub serving good food and ales, no need for long drives to get anywhere, hot tub was brilliant and the overall standard of the property was high. Nice and clean when we arrived, comfy beds and a lovely wood burning stove. Pews for dining room seating were a bit hard, but that's nothing a couple of cushions can't resolve. Really happy with our stay. Would highly recommend.

    We made good use of the bbq facilities as well the hot tub, and enjoyed the views of the vast open lands. Having the Owner’s owned local pub with a 3 mts walk was a bonus as the food was plentiful and generous, as was the hospitality.

  • "Beautiful character property with everything you need for a comfortable stay."

    Plenty of storage and comfortable in a pretty location. Plenty of towels provided and well stocked Kitchen. Lots of quirkyness and reminders of being a chapel, even the organ and hymn books! Hot tub is amazing and well needed after the walks and days out in the surrounding area. Didn't need to cook as local pub The Stiperstones Inn has good food and varied menu (advise booking in advance as can get very busy and we went in Winter!). Locals very welcoming and friendly. Will definately be going back and would recommend.Owners Phil and Lara very accommodating (as was all the staff) and nothing was too much trouble.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the Old Chapel."

    The property has been redeveloped to a good standard and the main area was a delight to relax in, especially with the log burner. Having the hot tub to relax in after a days walking was a real bonus. The Old Chapel is set in the beautiful Shropshire Hills with amazing views. The Stiperstones Inn just minutes away is warm and welcoming. The food was lovely and we found the staff and local drinkers very friendly. We will certainly go back again.

    The Old Chapel was a perfect location in an area of outstanding natural beauty. We did some great walks and runs, exploring locally. The cottage was perfect with a wonderful freshly baked cake on arrival and the hot tub in the evenings that looked out over the rolling hills was idyllic. Local pub did great food, too! We’ll be back!

    The facilities are spot on abs the views from the hot tub are just what you need after lockdown! The cottage is ideally placed for walking and day trips to Shrewsbury and Ludlow to name a few. the Stiperstones Inn is on the door step and well worth a visit where you will receive a warm welcome!

  • "Absolutely stunning cottage!"

    It had EVERYTHING you could possibly need whike away - we took all sorts of things we thought we might need for self catering but needn't have bothered as this beautuful place has it all. The owners run the pub, literally a couple of minutes away from the cottage, and were really lovely and helpful. Everything you need to know is in a welcome pack folder set out when you get there and they gave us all the essentials like milk, tea, bread all ready for us! If you run out of anything, there's a shop right next to the pub too. All rooms are beautifully presented - the log burner is huge and a real bonus in the cold weather. The hot tub is amazing and is a 6 person one with plenty of room and views across the fields at the rear of the house. Beds are very comfy, bathrooms are gorgeous and all newly fitted. We had a couple of takeaways from the pub menu, and the food is great - very reasonably priced! I could go on about this cottage for hours and we already plan to return next year. It's a hidden gem in a beautiful place... just WOW! Thanks to the owners and we will return as soon as we can

  • "The Old Chapel is exactly what a holiday cottage should be."

    Everything you need for a comfortable stay is there. The under floor heating makes the whole place really cosy, especially with a fire in the log burner. The 'New for 2020' bathrooms are lovely and the bedrooms very comfortable. The large hot tub is an added bonus to unwind at the end of each day. The house has loads of character and is in a a very peaceful location. There are fantastic walks and bike rides from the door and the owners pub is a 2 minute walk as well as the local shop which is brilliant, stocks just about everything you will need. We are already planning a return visit and can highly recommend The Old Chapel.

    Full of character, you seem to spot something new each day. After some fabulous walks in the area the hot tub was very welcome. The views from there are stunning and it’s difficult to drag yourself out. Location is great with the Stiperstones Inn just down the lane. Try the Lamb Shank it’s delicious although they would not provide more gravy when requested. Apparently you have to buy another shank to get more gravy ..... very odd. That said a great holiday was had by all

    Perfectly situated . All amenities perfect . The view is exceptional , the cottage is exceptional as well . The local village and the owners pub is a 2 minute walk . A little note , absolutely nothing to do with the cottage but access to the cottage is up a single track road so a big car won’t have room to turn . The owners were very gracious and left milk , bread and lovely homemade cake upon arrival . We had a glorious week.

    From the moment we arrived we were made to feel extremely welcome. The Old Chapel is welcoming, cosy and comfy, with a lovely log burner and a spacious hot tub over looking the beautiful hills and countryside. There is everything you need at the chapel - from washing up liquid, to tea,coffee, ketchup, dishwasher tablets, cleaning stuff - everything you would need. The log burner is all set ready to light, there was milk and bread, plus a homemade cake which was delicious. We immediately felt relaxed and at home. The pub - The Stiperstones Inn is a short walk away, and as it is run by Lara & Phil you get a discount on the food there. The food is delicious, proper pub grub with a good selection and very reasonably priced. The staff an locals are also so friendly and make you feel like it is your own local! There are lots of beautiful walks to do, and it is truly a stunning location. We will be going back for sure. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

A short drive away is one of England's finest heritage towns with over 600 listed buildings; Shrewsbury nestles on a loop of the River Severn. Shrewsbury has a magnificent abbey as well as Shrewsbury Castle, which stands in beautiful gardens and is home to the Shropshire Regimental Museum. There's plenty of interesting things to do in the area, with Attingham Park, Wroxeter Roman City, the museums at Ironbridge, and the castle and Michelin-starred restaurants of Ludlow, all making this hillside village the perfect touring spot for your Shropshire adventure.
