  • "Fantastic stay at The Chapel."

    Very clean and warm on arrival. Beautifully maintained with everything you need. Effective easy to adjust heating, constant hot water, good flow in shower and beautiful deep bath, quality towels provided. Comfy beds and seating. There is an en suite in the upstairs bedroom that is not mentioned in the description. Plenty of storage throughout. The property has a lovely tranquil away from it all feeling and unique, absolutely no light pollution at night. Set in a very small quiet village with lovely walks direct from the property for all abilities. The very large screen TV projector was amazing, works different to traditional TVs but full instructions provided, may struggle slightly if you are not very tall as needs turning on at the ceiling, my husband is 5ft 8in and managed well. Would have loved to have stayed longer than 7 days in this beautiful property . Harriet and Harry are excellent hosts, no contact key safe entry for arrival but only a phone call away if needed. We had a couple of questions which were responded to immediately. Would highly recommend.

  • "The Chapel is just wonderful."

    A real WOW factor. Very modern, but maintaining original features. The mezzanine bedroom with the pulpit...brilliant. plus an ensuite, which was not mentioned in the details. So a bonus! This property has been renovated to a very high standard. The beds were super comfy. Although the Chapel is open plan and spacious, it has such a cosy feel to it. The property is well located for getting out and about. So many places to explore Close by. I would highly recommend the Chapel. The owners have done it proud.

    Thank you so much for your kind words. We’re so happy you liked how we’ve renovated The Chapel and would love to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "Lovely property in beautiful surroundings."

    Points for improvement - a microwave would have been useful, as would instructions for the heating. Sometimes it was too hot and sometimes it was chilly. The fridge and freezer could have done with a clean. The projector was a bit of a faff to use and almost unwatchable during the daytime which was disappointing.

    Hi Clare, thank you for your feedback. We've only recently started holiday letting and it's great to know what people want. We've ordered a microwave and will have it in the property soon. We will also, look into changing the way people can watch TV during their stay and adding heating instructions to the welcome pack. We've also just instructed a professional cleaning company to do the changeovers so that nothing is missed in the future, apologies it wasn't up to standard when you stayed. We're glad you found Brackenfield a beautiful place to be in and would love to welcome you back. Property Owner
