    My wife and I have now visited The Old Chapel three times. We appreciate its warmth, comfort, location [though we can imagine this will not be right for many other people], and cycle facilities. However, there are issues that we have not found previously. The first thing we noticed was that the door giving access to the bridge and garden had a broken handle, which made using it impossible and making use of the outdoor seating also impossible. This further meant the property had only one point of access and egress, which would have been dangerous in the event of a fire. In addition,some paint and plaster is starting to flake off, 2 standard lamps don't seem to work, batteries in remote controls were on the blink, a non-stick pan and tin opener were in desperate need of replacement, and then, on the day before we were due to leave, an electrical fault put out all the power upstairs and to the microwave oven. As it could not be easily corrected, we decided that for our own safety we would have to leave early so lost a day's holiday. Until this and the glass door are properly dealt with we would not recommend this property.

    We loved The Old Chapel so much and would love to return. Very comfortable throughout and tastefully decorated. We felt so lucky to be able to stay here. The outside bridge setting is particularly wonderful. Just a few tweaks to suggest: far too many gadgets and kitchen paraphernalia in all the cupboards so nowhere to put own food other than fridge/freezer. Hob is ceramic and very tricky to operate if you are not familiar with how these work. Operation instructions would have been really helpful. A few of the radiators require bleeding as not very effective in some rooms (bathroom was freezing cold)

    Great place very quiet . Dog hair everywhere would of enjoyed it better without it. A little tic needed in a few places but overall was brilliant.



    out of 10

    The cottage is in a lovely location and has many facilities. Could do with some touching up though, alot of things are broken.



    out of 10

    Extremely comfortable and well equipped cottage, perfect for a family break. The children particularly loved the garden. Good location for trips up to Hadrians Wall and the Lake District, with Penrith also not far away for shopping.
