The Old Chapel

The Old Chapel in Slad, Gloucestershire; a luxury self catering Cotswold’s holiday rental, with a stylish, contemporary interior. Described by The Guardian (December 2013) as ‘one of the best cool holiday self-catering accommodations in the Cotswold’s…it’s both homely and stylish.’

Gather your loved ones and prepare to be amazed at this stunning, country chapel in the majestic Cotswold glades. Nestled amongst the flourishing slopes of the idyllic Slad Valley, it offers luxurious accommodation in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Marvel at its stylish interiors or at its fairy-tale façade or at its magical views and quirky graveyard. Made famous by Laurie Lee in the classic ‘Cider with Rosie’ novel, the iconic Slad Valley is something truly special.

The Old Chapel was originally built in 1865 and has since been expertly converted into a luxury, family home. Its magnificent original features have been carefully restored, while its contemporary, interior décor will leave you truly in awe. Admire its historic arched windows and its vintage furniture or its chic, modern fittings and statement artwork.

The L-shaped living area is spacious and bright and has plenty of room for the whole family to spread out. A sleek, designer kitchen is complete with state-of-the-art mod-cons, while salvaged church pews sit around the family dining table. Light the wood burning stove and curl up on the relaxed leather sofas or throw open the patio doors and head out into the gardens. There’s TV and WIFI to keep the kids entertained, along with an outdoor trampoline and cosy, indoor playroom.

Its four gorgeous bedrooms have room for up to ten and are perfect for up to 8 adults and two small children. Explore the master en-suite bedroom with its super-king-size bed or the traditional double room with its vibrant deckchair. Both are finished with an exquisite attention to detail and have an array of antique dressers, floral prints and beautiful, shuttered windows.

The third family bedroom can sleep up to two adults and two children and has a comfy bunkbed and two sink-in singles. Its unique petal-shaped window frames mesmerising country views, while sweet, little trinkets are joined by childhood jewels. Just across the hallway is the final bedroom where you’ll find a single bed and a pull-out trundle.

The Cotswolds is known for its breath-taking natural beauty and is bursting with bountiful wildlife and radiant hillsides. Picnic in the wildflower meadows or beside the enchanting woodland trails, watching for the prancing deer and striking birds of prey. Walk up verdant hillsides or through the lush Snows Farm, visiting chocolate-box villages and picturesque market towns. Stroud and Painswick can both be found nearby, while the much-loved Woolpack Pub is just 300 metres away.

This characterful holiday home, a spacious converted Cotswold’s chapel, is set on the slopes of the Slad Valley in the heart of the Cotswold Hills, one of the most picturesque and unspoilt locations in England. It is available for holiday rentals and short breaks all year.
