After something a bit different for your next rural retreat?Take a break from the norm with our range of quirky holiday accommodation. We’ve got the lot: rustic shepherd huts, cute caravans, glorious converted chapels, unique cottages and more.
Whether you want to lose yourself deep in the countryside in a cosy log cabin, bed down in a peaceful poolside windmill or take in the sea views from one of our off-beat coastal lets, we can help make your escape to the country truly extraordinary.
For UK stays, try the grandeur of a castle in the Scottish Highlands or vertical living in a West Country treehouse. Or, to keep your feet firmly on the ground, consider a luxury yurt in the Peak District. Your search for unusual holidays in the countryside could also take you further afield: try troglodyte life in a warren-like Spanish cave house or check in to a charming stone trullo in Italy.
The converted chapel, provides contemporary, stylish and very comfortable holiday accommodation. 4 bedrooms, large state-of-the-art kitchen-diner and huge open plan living space make The Old Chapel a unique Cotswolds holiday let. A ceramic induction hob is installed in …see more

Thank you for your valuable feedback. I must appologise if the Kitchen was not to your standards and in a clean condition when you arrived.
It is of course our intention that the place shall be clean when you arrive. As for the smell of fish, this is something which can be difficult to remove in a short time if the guests staying in the cabin before you have handeled fish in the cabin just before your arrival. Also, in the cod drying season, there is fish hanging all around the harbour, that also brings a smell to the entire harbour, but this soft outdoor odour lessens over the summer. After this season, we will evaluate whether we should make cleaning included in the rental, so there is a consistent standard, and no need to remind the guests of their cleaning responsibility if they have chosen to do this themselves.
We are hoping to bring internet to the cabin after this summer season is over and therefore ,we have not advertised this property with internet Access.
Thank you for visiting, and we hope you enjoy your summer.
