The fascinating Victorian Cotswolds chapel that's been transformed into a stunning rental

  • This fascinating building began life as a chapel in 1902 and was named the Victoria Memorial Chapel
  • It was used to hold religious services until 1984. In 2016 it was transformed into a beautiful rental 
  • Gothic panelling was added throughout, dividing the main hall into a bedroom, study area and shower room 
It’s a heavenly holiday rental, that’s for sure.

There are fabulous walks and views in nearby Rodborough and Selsey and Painswick village, dubbed the ‘Queen of the Cotswolds’, is also well worth a visit.
