  • "The New Chapel is excellent accommodation, everything you could need is there in a beautiful, clean and homely place to stay."

    We loved it so much we will definitely book again if in the area. First rate and best place we have stayed- highly recommend.

  • "The cottage is well set out and very comfortable."

    Everything we needed was available. Bike hire available too. Parking on the road was fine as a quiet road. Local walks but no local shop/pub. Easy to travel into Hornsea town and large Tesco. Would happily recommend both Chapels as we stayed in the smaller unit before.

  • "Sensitively renovated property in a quiet village."

    Interesting layout. Excellent bathrooms and compact bedrooms with large, comfortable beds. Nb: no garden but a pleasant village green a short walk along the road. a car is a must (no problems parking on the road) as the pub and shop are closed Thank you to the owners.

  • "Lovely cottage and enjoyed a wonderful stay."

    Have scored the accuracy as only 3 out of 4 as the pub has now closed - some time ago by the look af things - and no site of a shop. Neither of these things bothered us but may bother some so should really be corrected. The accuracy for the cottage itself was spot on - 4 out of 4. The kitchen has everything required, lovely dining area, and the beds were very comfortable. Would recommend this cottage to anyone - wonderful base location to explore wonderful countryside and beaches. Very good communication with owners as well - no issues whatsoever.

  • "The Old Chapel was a great base from which to visit the local area and the coast."

    It was exactly as described and wonderfully warm and cosy in the winter evenings. We cooked our own evening meals and found everything we needed in the kitchen. Highly recommend this place.

    The cottage had everything we needed. It was clean and comfortable, and was great value for money in terms of what we got. We would certainly recommend the cottage to others.

    Dawn was very helpful, we had a problem with the freezer which was promptly resolved. Accommodation was perfect for two couples as we each had an en-suite. Location was also good. Quiet village a short drive from local amenities.

  • "An unusual design and layout for a holiday property, when compared with your average house, but it really works!"

    Very comfortable accommodation with every facility that you need. A quiet location and it is only 4 miles from the sea and is well placed to visit the East Riding.

  • "Not as advertised ."

    Not near a shop but is advertised as being , local pub has very limited opening hours and is shut Monday and Tuesdays. ( no mention when booking) very poor phone reception in chapel . Lovely owners , property lovely and clean k but had we know not as listed no shop , local pub with limited opening and poor phone connection we would not have booked . Spend all holiday walking to end of road or going out, to get any phone reception , so far from ideal .

  • "Beautifully converted chapel."

    We could see and smell how clean it was when we arrived and were put at ease straight away. It was a pity that covid restrictions meant that the kitchen equipment was limited and the books and dvds had been removed. Would thoroughly recommend it to people wanting to explore such an interesting part of Yorkshire.

  • "The chapel was renovated to a high standard, we loved the high ceiling and mezzanine floor and original window features."

    The owners had thought of everything with a surprise welcome box and extras like soaps and coffee and tea. The property was situated in a quiet spot, in walking distance to a nice pub and a short drive to Hornsea. In Hornsea there were lovely places to eat and we particularly loved the Italian restaurant. Would definitely recommend!

  • "We let ourselves in and found a lovely room in front of us, with 3 settees and a couple of chairs."

    And a lovely looking fireplace. The downstairs loo was a bonus. The kitchen/diner had all we needed, with a lovely welcome package of beer, fizz, biscuits and uht milk in the fridge. We used the smaller bedroom, with the zip and link bed, which was very firm. There was plenty of storage space. You need to make sure the immersion heater is on, otherwise there is no hot water. Though lighting the stove adds to the hot water. We had no issues parking outside. The local pub, a 2 min walk away, serves great simple food, Wed's to Sun. A 1.8 mile walk takes you to the Falcon, in Withernwick. Well worth a visit, the food is great, the staff friendly and the prices are very competitive. Med Mex in Hornsea is good, as is Sonali spice, nearby. A drive to Spurn Point, is well worth the effort, it's an 8.5 mile round trip, with miles of golden sand, fabulous. Bridlington, was closed!, Flamborough a good walk and Filey lovely. The Trans Pendine Trail (TPT) is worth a walk or cycle, though Hull is not nice!! . Ps the outside cycle storage is not ideal, or overly safe, if you have expensive bikes, like us. Consider, carefully, storing them in the property!! We would highly recommend this property, its in a lovely village and area.

  • "The property is perfect, we really enjoyed our time at the new chapel."

    You have everything you need within a 10min drive, we took our bikes and used the cycle paths close by. The supermarket and Hornsea beach are also around 10mins away. The facilities in the accommodation were excellent, the village is small and there isn't anything there but plenty around including a pub a few mins walk away, it wasn't opened due to coming out of lockdown so can't comment. We took a drive to Hull which is around 30mins away and found a great city with lots to do(except during our time there) We would happily return one day.

    Excellent part of the world for cycling , the write up said secure cycle storage but it was iron hoops at the front not a lock up outbuilding which was a disappointment it didn’t detract from the holiday in any shape or form but if I had known I wouldn’t of booked because my cycle costs around £2000 and I’m not in the habit of leaving it outside

The village was exceptionally quiet and peaceful and the pub only a few hundred yards away where we enjoyed two very nice evening meals.

  • "The chapel was lovely to stay in, cosy and modern in a beautiful old building."

    Like staying in a Grand Designs home! it's been really thought out well with a designer interior and finish. Don't pack the kitchen sink! its well equipped and has an easy to read welcome pack. Just a little thing like having a plug in night light in my bedroom as well as easy to reach bedside lights was much appreciated. Amazing coast and country side around. Loved Hornsea very pretty the Mere, town and seafront, has everything you need 5 minute drive away. Would recommend Pockilngton market and the scenic drive around the wolds and villages as well as Bridlington, almost forgot Beverly too Beautiful! and lots of free parking in towns, makes a difference.

    The cottage lacks attention to detail in certain areas which was a shame. Overall a good stay was had just a shame standards were not met.

  • "The chapel is beautifully done and very comfortable."

    Just 100 yards away or so there is a very welcoming pub with good food. There is plenty to keep you occupied within easy reach and even more if you are prepared to drive an hour or so. Perhaps the only drawback is the lack of outside space but the positives far outweigh that.

    Booking was easy - Sykes app is so useful and takes the hassle out of the whole process. I didn’t have to find time to chase details or worry about payment as it was all done automatically. I received a text 2 days before with details of key collection and the owners had left comprehensive instructions about everything we could possibly want or need to know. Fantastic and highly recommended. Thank you for helping us enjoy half term.

  • "Whilst the chapel was lovely conversion - it somehow wasn't comfortable."

    Major problem was the energy efficient lighting - fine in principle but impossible to find a spot where you could read a book - needs a decent reading lamp at least. Same problem in the rear bedroom which we used - very poor bedside lights - one of which didn't work. (Couldn't use the front bedroom as the rooflight blind will not close.) Range of kitchen equipment poor and of poor quality - difficult to cook a full meal with what was available.

  • "We felt that there were a few basic kitchen items unavailable, for example - a potato masher and a medium sized casserole dish or oven dish."

    A larger frying pan would also have been useful, the one supplied was too small for pan frying fish. However, on the plus side, when we had a problem with the water failing to drain away in the shower, the owners responded to it very quickly and rectified it the same day.
