Quirky 1760 chapel resting in the heart of Shropshire. 6 mins to Ironbridge & Telford. Self contained. Warm welcome, large peaceful room with private ensuite bathroom, wifi, TV, self catering equipment and open countryside views. History, privacy & character guaranteed. Enjoy a beautiful country haven & relax.

The space
Our lovely old house is oozing with history and has many original Chapel features, sitting within our small holding, in the centre of a picturesque rural lane on a nature reserve. This room is on the private top floor. We live downstairs and have a communal front door.

Your large room has a standard double bed with luxury down duvet and pillows (non-down available on request). We have recently installed beautiful ensuite facilities for this room. There will be a welcome tray in your bedroom for your convenience with an array of teas and coffee and biscuits on offer as well as a welcome pack, TV, comfortable sofa, hairdryer and other travel necessities. We also provide a 45 litre refrigerator, toaster, microwave, kettle and cutlery and crockery items so guests can simply self cater. We ask that you keep things clean and tidy up as you would at home!

We are happy to prepare the room for anything up to four family members although it's standard decor is a double. We can add a fold up bed for one extra guest. If you book for four in total the two extra beds will be airbeds due to space restrictions. This will of course impact on the space available but it enables a family to be accommodated in one room together. It is a budget choice when booked for four of course. Please be clear on this. We have larger rooms which accommodate four easily but they are not ensuite. The sofa will be removed for bookings for four guests.

For a more spacious group booking; we have two additional rooms we book out, and can provide beds for up to fourteen guests.

We have three local pubs and a grocery shop in walking distance.
Our home is unique in that it appears to be quite rural and yet is just 5-10 minutes from the M54 and Telford and the International Centre itself, as well as only a mile or so from Ironbridge, Ironbridge Gorge and the museums and world heritage sites there.

We have no over looking neighbours and the area is beautifully quiet. For most of the year you will be awoken by bird song in the mornings.

Free parking is available in a private layby next to our house or safely further up our little lane where we park our own vehicles.

Guest access
Guests have sole use of their booked room and private ensuite facilities and can come and go as they please.

We offer hot, hearty home cooked evening meals for £10 per person and simple toast and cereals breakfasts for £3.50. Please order in advance. These will be served to your room for your privacy and convenience. There is no downstairs guest breakfast or dining room.

We are not self catering accommodation using our family kitchen, but provide simple self catering items in the room (microwave, toaster, fridge, kettle, crockery and cutlery). Please leave these clean and as you find them.

Checks ins and meal service will now be fully adhering to social distancing guidelines.

Other things to note
Chapel House is a big old house down a picturesque non maintained gravel lane, which can get muddy in wet weather. In cold weather it will not be as warm as a new build; there's no sitting around in T-shirts when its cold outside! Our home has buckets of character and history in a delightful location, and is a very happy home, and what we offer reflects that.

We have a very friendly dog and two pet pigs, a pot bellied and a kune kune. Our dog stays downstairs only and guests need not meet him if they are not happy around dogs.

The best thing about our neighbourhood is its idyllic setting and historical value. The houses are all different and have sprung up over several centuries. It is a pretty place to be. We live on a quiet no through lane which looks out onto woodland with stunning countryside views. Our hamlet is rural and quaint with every house on our lane a hodge podge of local history spanning some 450 years.

Hi! Ty and I are a medical researcher and teacher enjoying the best of Shropshire life in a beautiful part of the county. We live with our children and pets; our dog Billy, Lola the pot bellied pig and Albert the kune kune pig - I'm working on chickens! We enjoy dog walking, live comedy and love nights out with friends. We also love having people to stay and our house is often the venue for parties and BBQs. We have a huge home and love having a houseful of guests, which is why we thought AirBnB would be a good way to go. We've done loads of travelling in the past, in the form of backpacking and volunteer work, and have been and lived pretty much all over the world so enjoy meeting people from near and far. We're very hospitable and want you to feel at ease in our home, and enjoy a comfortable, well equipped, professional stay. We aren't a hotel - don't expect that, but we are warm and welcoming with a quirky home and love meeting people from around the world... as well as our super staple business travellers who arrive shattered and need a safe place with a decent room, hot shower, brew and bed. We salute you harried business folks. So to all our future guests, give us a smile and there'll be a very warm welcome and lovely room with your name on it. Hope to meet you soon.
