We've just come back from a 3 night stay at the Old Chapel. A group of four in our twenties and loved the place the minute we walked in. The Chapel was so well equipped and stocked with teas and coffees, so much crockery, cutlery, utensils, dishwasher (with tablets) and everything to make it your home. Two cosy bedrooms, a great sized bathroom. The fact towels and linen were provided was a massive bonus.
Bookshelves in the bedroom and main room suited
to both old and young, several board games and TV with several DVDs so you're never stuck for something if you choose to stay inside.
Great wide space with the amazing log fire (and great smell from all the wood panelling) created a lovely atmosphere. Lots of leaflets for the area and food nearby.
We went to Cannop Cycle Centre to do the family trail which was a lovely trip and less than 10 minutes away and also a day trip to Bristol (50 mins).
The two of us from Brighton were thrilled to see sheep walking outside the Chapel!
Only downside to the area was a lot of places serving food closed earlier than we would be used to, but as mentioned there were plenty of options for takeaways in the Chapel.
All in all a wonderful stay. We would definitely return and really can't fault it. Would recommend to anyone.
My friends and I spent the bank holiday weekend at this beautiful cottage. It has almost everything you would need together with a fully equipped kitchen perfect for those that like to cook. Lots of beautiful scenery a short drive from the cottage. It was the perfect stay.
We stayed in the Old Chapel for 5 nights in mid-June. It is in a quiet location on the edge of the forest. It is very well-maintained and has everything we required to make our holiday relaxing and comfortable. Every amenity we could think of was available. Besides walking the many forest paths right outside the front door, we enjoyed a bike ride and a visit to Mallards Pike, as well as a visit to nearby Puzzlewood and Chepstow Castle. The chapel was conveniently located for us to make separate day excursions to both Stratford-Upon-Avon and Bath, as well. The owner, Doreen, is very pleasant to deal with and really went out of her way, above and beyond, to make our visit as smooth as possible - even so far as to make a trip to Heathrow to find the best route for us to the chapel! We would highly recommend the Old Chapel to others seeking a relaxing get away.
This is such a peaceful, welcoming place - absolutely the best-equipped cottage we have ever stayed in. Doreen, the owner could not have been more helpful in our initial exchanges and The Old Chapel more than lived up to our hopes and expectations. Situated on the edge of the forest, with walks on the door step and lots of attractions within easy travelling distance, it was perfectly situated - though we enjoyed just being in the cottage relaxing by the lovely wood-burning stove. Comfortable, clean, characterful - we will certainly hope to return before too long.

Just got back from a week in this beautiful cottage. Myself and my husband have stated in lots of places around the country but I have to say the old chapel so far tops them all. Situated in a very central location for exploring the forest of Dean and has every thing and more you could need. Very good living space with a lovely log fire which I really need practice at as only had it going once and that's because it was set ready to go!!! Overall a lovely cottage which I would recommend and stay at again. If you need a good restaurant then the ostrich is perfect proper old pub with out of this world food.
