The Old Chapel is a converted Primitive Methodist chapel which retains some wonderful original features including fine wooden flooring and the original tea service made when the property was built in the 1860s. The drawing room is situated in the original chapel itself and features original windows, a fireplace with a mantel shelf and a pair of gothic style glazed doors leading to the dining room, which is filled with light from glazed walls and sliding doors, which offer views out to the gardens.
The well-fitted kitchen has maple units and next to this is the boot room with a separate door to the garden, while the study sits off the entrance hall.
Upstairs the first floor has a galleried walkway above the drawing room and accommodation has exposed beams throughout; the en-suite master bedroom has a triple aspect and there are also two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
