With abundant wildlife in the large garden and surrounding fields, its inglenook fireplace for cosy winter fires, patio area for al fresco summer meals, masses of daffodils and primroses in the spring and spectacular views of countryside glowing gold in the autumn. With central heating throughout Chapel Cottage is the perfect hoiday during any season.

Mr Main

A perfect rural escape without being too isolated. It has all the character, and quirks, you would expect of a thatch several hundred years old. Exceptionally it is in its own large secure plot. A sheer delight. If it is to continue to be let during the colder seasons it does however need some investment in the heating. The storage heaters are ancient, inadequate, and in at least one case (living room) not working.


Dear Mr Main, Thank you for your feedback. At the time of your stay in September 2020 Chapel Cottage was heated by electric wall heaters, unfortunately we were not aware that one of the heaters wasn’t working. Please be assured that if you had contacted during your stay, this would have been remedied straight away. We can now confirm upgrades to the heating system have been made with the cottage now benefitting from gas central heating, making it the perfect winter retreat. We do hope to welcome you back in the future. Kind Regards The Sweetcombe Team
