The Chapel is a stunning property located in the picturesque village of Poulton, close to Cirencester, the largest market town in the Cotswolds. Although small, Poulton has a well-regarded pub, a village shop and Post Office, and there is a children's playground and playing field. The village is very well placed for exploring the surrounding countryside, visiting the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds, or visiting famous places such as Bath, Oxford or Stratford-upon-Avon.
Originally the village chapel, the owners have beautifully renovated the property to a high standard, retaining many character features including an exposed Cotswold stone wall, wood burning stove and arched oak entrance door. These period features are complemented by modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a large Smart TV and a stylish kitchen with a roof lantern focal point.
The Chapel sleeps eight guests, in four bedrooms with three bathrooms, split across the main house and the annexe in the garden. There is a private landscaped garden at the rear of the property, and off-street parking for up to five cars is available on the gravel driveway. The property is the perfect place for a group of friends or family looking for a relaxing break in the Cotswolds.
Booking and payment
Character Cottages is a marketing agency and we do not own or manage any of the cottages listed on our website. Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.
For bookings commencing more than 10 weeks in advance, a 30% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking. The balance payment is then due 10 weeks prior to arrival.
All payments are made subject to the cancellation policy set out in the standard Booking Conditions.
Security deposits are not required (please note that guests are still liable for any damage or additional cleaning required as a result of their actions).
The maximum occupancy of the property, including its grounds, is eight guests, at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than eight guests at the property.
Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by up to two additional infants.
Up to two medium sized dogs are accepted, at a cost of £20 per booking per dog.
For the comfort of future guests, we ask that dogs remain downstairs, stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure.

Accessibility, health and safety
This is an old, former chapel with many character features, including steep stairs, some low beams and sloping ceilings, and multiple floors, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency.
A brook flows through the bottom of the garden which is separated by a fence.
The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.
No smoking is permitted throughout the property.

Unfortunately, Hen, Stag and other same sex groups are not allowed at The Chapel.
If you would like to enquire as part of a same sex group, please contact us, as these may be accepted at the sole discretion of the property owner. Please note that same sex family groups are welcome.
In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas.
If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.Get the full listing »
