Award winning Architect designed conversion of a Methodist Chapel, which was a place of worship for 150 years until being converted to a home in 2000 when it featured in 'Living Etc.' magazine. It has been available to rent as a holiday home since late 2015.
The modern conversion retains the original features such as the double height ceiling meaning the space is very light and airy, perfect for a relaxing break.
At Ground Floor the Living / Kitchen / Dining Areas. An ‘L’ shaped sofa provides ample space for you to relax with freeview smart TV & blu-ray player to keep you entertained and a wood burning stove to add to the heat and the ambience of your stay. The Kitchen area has a 4 plate electric hob together with both fan and conventional ovens, an american style fridge/freezer, various utensils, cutlery, saucepans, frying pan, small wok and oven dishes. Not to mention the kettle, 4 slice toaster, microwave oven and cafetiere. There is a dishwasher below the sink and hidden away under the stairs is a washing machine. The Dining Area has a table and chairs to seat four very comfortably. There is ample crockery, cutlery and glassware. A full inventory is emailed prior to your arrival so you are aware of what to expect from the kitchen contents. This is only to ensure that you do not duplicate any items by bringing them from home uneccessarily to hopefully help to reduce your luggage.
At the Mezzanine level there are two Bedroom areas and a Bathroom. The two Bed areas have glass balustrade viewing to the Living Area below. The Master Bedroom area has a king size bed and side boards with shelving below and reading lamps above. This area is provided with a DAB radio alarm clock. The Second Bedroom area has a small (4ft wide) double bed with bed side table, shelf and bed side lamp. The Bathroom appears modest from the outside, but is comfortably equipped with an electric towel rail, washbasin, WC and bath with shower facilities over. Linking these three areas is a landing with a substantial amount of wardrobe and storage space including an airing cupboard with it's own hanging rail, wardrobe hanging rails, hangers, shelving and a shoe rack.
There is a hair dryer, an iron, ironing board and folding clothes horse for your use should you require them.
Each bed is provided with 4 pillows and a duvet. Bedding (2 x mattress protectors per bed, 2 x pillow protectors per pillow and 1 x duvet protector per duvet, 1 x pillow case per pillow, 1 x fitted sheet per bed and 1 x duvet cover and 1 x throw per bed ALL changed weekly or before each stay whichever is sooner), towels (4 bath sheets, 2 hand towels and 2 bath mats ALL changed weekly or before each stay whichever is sooner ) and toilet rolls are provided for your stay. If you run out of toilet rolls we ask that you provide more yourself. If your stay lasts over a week the beds will be changed for you during the weekly clean. We keep the kitchen stocked with some basic essentials such as dishwasher tabs, soap, hand cream, washing up liquid, salt, pepper, laundry detergent, fabric conditioner, a first aid kit, bin bags, tea and hand towels and dish cloths.
To welcome you upon arrival the kitchen is stocked with a limited supply of Clipper tea bags and coffee and hot chocolate sachets with brown and white sugar sachets and a pack of local hand made biscuits (usually shortbread). A pint of fresh milk will be available in the fridge.
All of these complimentary items are provided as standard.
!!CHILDREN!! : Due to the nature of the property, especially at the Mezzanine level, while we encourage "Babes~in~arms", but we do not feel it suitable for "mobile" children between 9 months and 7 years old. Sorry. Young babies and children aged 8 and over are welcome. For reasons of safety due to the fact that there is a Mezzanine floor above ground level separated only by a handrail and glass panel to (adult) waist height young children may be at risk of falling if they climb onto the rail. These stipulations are for general guidance only. Obviously it is your responsibility to ensure your children's safety. PLEASE ASK if you have any questions about this aspect. We are always happy to help with advice/further photos etc. Please also see the full range of photos in the listing. Because we have highlighted the potential dangers we accept no responsibility for injury or other consequence of a fall accidental or otherwise. Clearly the property is unsuitable for those of any age who sleepwalk. Although it is open plan it is not possible to see the bed in the other room when you are in bed yourself nor is it possible to see the beds properly from downstairs. Your child's safety is your own responsibility at all times.
BABES~IN~ARMS: We have a good range of equipment for babies staying at The Chapel including a travel cot / change table / bassinet combo with bedding, a secure high chair, Jogger City Mini push chair (suitable from birth), age appropriate cutlery and crockery, play mat, change mat with replacement washable covers and a baby bath with bath toys. Hopefully this will help reduce the space taken up in your car for the journey here! We have some suitable cot linen, blankets, a sleep bag and towels, but you'll probably want to bring your own in addition. All of the baby equipment is of a good quality and is checked and steam cleaned before and after each use. Please let us know when you book if you would like to use these facilities so that we may prepare them ahead of your arrival.
DOGS & PETS: Sorry, but due to the nature of the property and lack of enclosed garden, we do not feel it suitable for animals to stay.

Please feel free to contact us if another day would be preferable and we'll see what we can do. Arrive: anytime after 3.00 PM on a Friday or 4.00 PM on other days. The Chapel may be ready earlier on occasion and we are happy to text you if you let us know in advance that you'd like to know if this is the case. Vacate: before 10:15am. The Chapel is immaculately presented and professionally cleaned and checked between each visit. In addition to this there is no need to remember to put the bins out for collection as this will also be done for you.
WI-FI / INTERNET ACCESS: Wi-fi / Internet access is available. Details for connection are found in the information welcome pack. This also means you can use the smart tv to access catch up tv using BBC iplayer, itv player, All4 etc.
HEATING: Each of the main areas of The Chapel has its own individually controllable energy efficient electric heater (the night stores in some of the photos have been replaced) which is pre-programmed, but allows you to easily override the settings should you need to. For those of you who wish to, the wood burning stove is available for use. We ask that you only use the complimentary well seasoned wood and kindling provided. Additional wood can be purchased for a (small economical) fee during your stay.
The Chapel is in Wing, a modest traditional village within the glorious Rutland countryside. The local pub - The King's Arms - is just a few minutes walk and excellent for food and drink. Wing situated between the county town of Oakham and the near by town of Uppingham, both being historic market towns. Each town and the villages which surround them are of much interest from an historical and architectural point of view as well as the many independent specialist shops, museums, art galleries, hostelries, garden nurseries, restaurants, cafes and tea rooms. In Wing you will find The Kings Arms Inn and Restaurant, less than a 3 minute walk from the door, which provides locally sourced food and ale alongside roaring open fires and a short walk to the edge of the village you’ll find yourself at Wing Hall where you can sample the delights of the Farm and Village Shop. On Sundays you can enjoy afternoon tea at the village hall and various attractions throughout the year.

Kaplica jest absolutnie wspaniałe i niepowtarzalne, i przekroczył nasze oczekiwania. To potrafi być zarówno przestronne i przytulne, z naprawdę inteligentne wykorzystanie przestrzeni. To było idealne dla naszego 4-dniowego rejsu na Nowy Rok. Colin i Samantha zapewnił, że mieliśmy wszystko, co potrzebne. Podobało nam się również zwiedzić okolicę. Gorąco polecam pobyt tutaj.Katie2017-01-02T00:00:00Z
Kaplica jest genialnym kompaktowym "domek" z nowoczesnym typu Scandi dotyku, ale bez narażania jej dziedzictwa architektonicznego. To jest bardzo dobrze przemyślane w każdym pomieszczeniu używanego obejmuje nie tylko podstawowe informacje na krótki pobyt, ale wiele innych udogodnień. Kochamy to!Jane2016-12-27T00:00:00Z
