The Old Chapel


A beautifully renovated, wonderfully positioned converted chapel in the heart of one of the area's prettiest villages. Wootton Rivers is within the North Wessex downs Area of Outstanding Natural beauty, with beautiful walks along the Kennet & Avon Canal, the Ridgeway and Savernake Forest. The village has a 16th century thatched pub a few doors down from the Chapel. We are also on the National Cycle Network route 4 as well as near to great restaurants such as Stein's and Dan's in Marlborough. 

Perfect for couples looking for a quiet, romantic retreat or young families with one or two small children. The master bedroom is open to the stairs (stair gates top and bottom if required) with bedroom 2 off the main bedroom. (You are welcome to book for three adults as long as you are happy that the person in bedroom 2 must access the stairs and bathroom through the main bedroom.)

The kitchen is fully equipped including dishwasher and washing machine. There is also a heated airer, iron and ironing board at the property. The shower room has under-floor heating.

There is a large fenced garden over looking a field, which typically has cows in during the spring and summer. The garden is currently being landscaped but by the Spring 2019 there will be an outdoor eating space just outside the french windows so you can take in the views. Prior to the garden being finished, you are still very welcome to access it, especially those who need to let their dogs out (but please remove any dog mess).
