At Ground Floor the Living / Kitchen / Dining Areas. An ‘L’ shaped sofa provides ample space for you to relax with freeview smart TV & blu-ray player to keep you entertained and a wood burning stove to add to the heat and the ambience of your stay. The Kitchen area has a 4 plate electric hob together with both fan and conventional ovens, an american style fridge/freezer, various utensils, cutlery, saucepans, frying pan, small wok and oven dishes. Not to mention the kettle, 4 slice toaster, microwave oven and cafetiere. There is a dishwasher below the sink and hidden away under the stairs is a washing machine. The Dining Area has a table and chairs to seat four very comfortably.

At the Mezzanine level there are two Bedroom areas and a Bathroom. The two Bed areas have glass balustrade viewing to the Living Area below. The Master Bedroom area has a full size (5ft wide) double bed and side boards with shelving below and reading lamps above. This area is provided with a DAB radio alarm clock. The Second Bedroom area has a small (4ft wide) double bed with bed side table, shelf and bed side lamp. The Bathroom appears modest from the outside, but is comfortably equipped with an electric towel rail, washbasin, WC and bath with shower facilities over. Linking these three areas is a landing with a substantial amount of wardrobe and storage space including an airing cupboard.

There is a hair dryer, an iron, ironing board and folding clothes horse for your use should you require them.

Bedding, towels and toilet roll are provided for your stay and we try to keep the kitchen stocked with some basic essentials.

Outside, to the front of The Chapel there is a small graveled area which is just big enough for a few chairs and a bistro table (provided). Perfect for sitting out under the stars and having a bite to eat and drink. While The Chapel is strictly no smoking, please feel free to use this outdoor area to indulge. Please help yourselves to the culinary herbs growing in the wall baskets.

CYCLE STORE: Down the side of the building there is a store which you are welcome to use. It is large enough to comfortably stow away a few bicycles and has a bolted door which can be padlocked to provide security. We ask that you bring your own padlock for your own peace of mind. A padlock may be borrowed for a small deposit during your stay.

WASHING LINE: Down this side of The Chapel there is also a retractable washing line.

CAR PARKING: Car Parking is on the road directly in front of The Chapel.

HEATING: Each of the main areas of The Chapel has its own individually controllable energy efficient electric heater (the night stores in some of the photos have been replaced) which is pre-programmed, but allows you to easily override the settings should you need to. For those of you who wish to, the wood burning stove is available for use. We ask that you only use the well seasoned wood and kindling provided. Additional wood can be purchased for a (small economical) fee during your stay.

CHILDREN: Due to the nature of the property, especially at the Mezzanine level, while we encourage "Babes~in~arms", but we do not feel it suitable for "mobile" children between 9 months and 12 years old. Sorry.

BABES~IN~ARMS: We have some equipment for babies staying at The Chapel including a travel cot / change table / bassinet combo, a secure high chair, push chair (suitable from birth), age appropriate cutlery and crockery, play mat, and a baby bath with bath toys. Hopefully this will help reduce the space taken up in your car for the journey here! We have some suitable cot linen, blankets and towels, but you'll probably want to bring your own in addition. All of the baby equipment is of a good quality and is checked and steam cleaned before and after each use. Please let us know when you book if you would like to use these facilities so that we may prepare them ahead of your arrival.

DOGS & PETS: Sorry, but due to the nature of the property and lack of enclosed garden, we do not feel it suitable for animals to stay.

CHANGE OVER DAY: Generally the change over day is Friday, however for those long weekenders or mid-week breaks Monday can be arranged. Please feel free to contact us if another day would be preferable and we'll see what we can do. Arrive: anytime after 3pm. Vacate: before 10:15am. The Chapel is immaculately presented and professionally cleaned and checked between each visit.

WI-FI / INTERNET ACCESS: Wi-fi / Internet access is available. Details for connection are found in the information welcome pack. This also means you can use the smart tv to access catch up tv using BBC iplayer, itv player, All4 etc.

On your arrival there will be an information welcome pack, containing all you need to know about The Chapel and its facilities as well as local amenities,attractions and other such tourist information. However, should you require any information before you get here please do not hesitate to contact us.

Location description from owner

The England region

The Chapel is in Wing, a modest traditional village within the glorious Rutland countryside situated between the county town of Oakham and the near by town of Uppingham, both being historic market towns. Each town and the villages which surround them are of much interest from an historical and architectural point of view as well as the many independent specialist shops, museums, art galleries, hostelries, garden nurseries, restaurants, cafes and tea rooms. In Wing you will find The Kings Arms Inn and Restaurant, less than a 3 minute walk from the door, which provides locally sourced food and ale alongside roaring open fires and a short walk to the edge of the village you’ll find yourself at Wing Hall where you can sample the delights of the Farm and Village Shop. On Sundays you can enjoy afternoon tea at the village hall and various attractions throughout the year.

The South Shore of Rutland Water is well within a 10 minute car journey with easy access to its various attractions such as sailing and water sports facilities, cycle tracks, bird-watching, fishing lodge, walking, climbing wall, reptile and bug zoo, crazy golf etc, etc.

The Rutland countryside’s highways and byways are ideal for cycling and walking alike and there is a multitude of footpaths and bridleways which crisscross the agricultural land between the towns, villages and hamlets.

For fishing, walking and cycling, the Eye Brook reservoir is a 13 minute drive and Wakerley Woods is 15 minutes away.

A 20 minute drive hop across the border into Lincolnshire will see you in Stamford with its nearby Burghley House famed for the Burghley Horse Trials, being the back drop to many period dramas, its gardens and its historical architectural interest.

There are various golf courses throughout the county from the historic Luffenham Heath Golf Club to the newer Rutland Water and Greetham Vally Golf Courses

“OK”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2016

Would not write home about it. Nice location. Bedrooms are open to the whole rental. No privacy. Otherwise good but would not book again.

Owner's reply: Hi David, We are sorry you found The Chapel disappointing however, the property description does state quite clearly within the listing "..This property is open plan design – the only internal walls being around the Bathroom!.." and we feel that we have demonstrated this very clearly in the photographs provided. We are not sure what more we can do to make guests more aware of the internal arrangement of the property? Any suggestions would be welcome. We hope your next holiday let is more suited to your requirements.

“Relaxing Break”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2016

We had a lovely relaxing break in The Chapel. The property was spotlessly clean, well equipped and with excellent appliances. It was the ideal place to explore the beautiful county of Rutland.

Owner's reply: We are glad you enjoyed your time at The Chapel... Sue and Kerrie, our cleaning fairies, do a fantastic job for us and we will ensure that we pass on your comments.

“The Chapel Wing”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2016

We had a very good stay The Chapel was a very interesting and well equipped base to stay and explore the area. The owners were helpful when we had a problem and were able to give any advise we needed. With several folders on the amenities in the area which were very useful.

Owner's reply: We are glad you enjoyed your stay and found the information folders useful. Thank you.

“Amazing bolt hole in a super location”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2016

Everything about the chapel was brilliant. The warm welcome from the neighbors (hello Kev ), the beautiful and tranquil setting and the great village pub..amazing food and lovely staff. The farm shop at Wing Hall is superb, selling gorgeous local food, it made me wonder why I had brought supplies from home! One note of caution: we are reasonably fit but the hill on bikes from both directions between Wing and Rutland Water was an absolute lung buster...but that first pint once done will have been well earned

Owner's reply: We're are really glad you enjoyed your stay.. hopefully we'll see you again soon.
