Originally built in 1888, the chapel was converted and extended in the 1970's. It has been substantially renovated and updated by the current owner over the last two years.
The Old Chapel boasts many original features including the original large double door entrance, eight large arched windows with full height slatted oak shutters (the windows have coloured glass insets).

spectacular double height sitting room which has a gallery / library above.
A large wood burning stove sits in a contemporary free standing chimney breast in the heart of the chapel room.
