A beautifully renovated, wonderfully positioned converted chapel in the heart of one of the area's prettiest villages. Wootton Rivers is within the North Wessex downs Area of Outstanding Natural beauty, with beautiful walks along the Kennet & Avon Canal, the Ridgeway and Savernake Forest. The village has a 16th century thatched pub a few doors down from the Chapel. We are also on the National Cycle Network route 4 as well as near to great restaurants such as Stein's and Dan's in Marlborough.
Perfect for couples looking for a quiet, romantic retreat or young families with one or two small children. The master bedroom is open to the stairs (stair gates top and bottom if required) with bedroom 2 off the main bedroom. (You are welcome to book for three adults as long as you are happy that the person in bedroom 2 must access the stairs and bathroom through the main bedroom.)
The kitchen is fully equipped including dishwasher and washing machine. There is also a heated airer, iron and ironing board at the property. The shower room has under-floor heating.
There is a large fenced garden overlooking a field which has many interesting visitors such as rabbits, deer and barn owls, amongst others. There is an outdoor eating space just outside the french windows so you can take in the views. Guest access the whole property. Interaction with guests. We are available to contact most of the time on the telephone but please be aware that we both work during the week and so please bear with us if we don't reply immediately.
There will be an emergency contact number at the property. When we are in the village (we live very nearby) we can come to greet you or answer any queries.
Other things to note For foodies their is a wide choice of excellent pubs and restaurants in the local area, including: Rick Stein's, Dan's and Zaika in Marlborough, The Swan in Grafton, Red Lion in West Chisenbury, The Outside Chance in Manton, The Bell at West Overton and many others. For those using the Old Chapel as a base to explore, we are only 20 mins (11 miles) by car from Avebury Neolithic Stone Circle and 35 mins (20 miles) from the more famous Stonehenge!
