    The Chapel is a nice, family-friendly place to stay. It is spacious and nicely restored, and the kitchen is pretty well equipped. We had issues with the heat and a clogged shower and the owner came right over to help us. We appreciated their prompt attention. We enjoyed our time over Christmas there but felt there were a few things we should draw potential renters' attention to. First, there is no WiFi. We overlooked its absence in the listing which is our own fault. However, it should also be noted that there is also very poor or no mobile coverage. When in the house, we did not get reception (multiple carriers). We had to stand outside to use our phones, look up things online, etc. If we had known of this, we probably would not have stayed here. We have an elderly family member and the lack of phone service was a concern, especially when he was tired and wanted to stay behind while the rest of the family went in to town. Second, we understood we paid a premium for the holiday, but tacking extra fees on to our accommodation for heat was a bit of a slap. All told, we paid more than £1500 for the holiday week after the added heating fees. Sadly, telling people they’ll be charged extra for the heat probably encourages even more use of it than not. Especially after paying so much for the property. Renters should be advised to get their cash for the heat ahead of time as there is no ATM in Marksbury. Finally, despite getting pre-approval for our dogs, someone (not sure who) neglected to include (we’ve been told) that additional cost in our bill. Several days after we departed, I was contacted by the owner and told to pony up yet more money. I had thought the dogs were already included in the accommodation charge. Given that the bill is not itemized, I can only take the owner’s word that they were not. I am grateful to cottages dot com for their help on this.

    We really enjoyed our time at The Chapel and it is excellently situated for access to Bath, Bristol etc. The only issue was the lack of WiFi and internet signal. It made researching local attractions tricky.

    A beautiful cottage in a stunning location. We had a very comfortable stay there. Unfortunately we hadn’t realised there was no WiFi at the cottage. It was our responsibility to check when we booked and we failed to do so, we made an assumption that WiFi would be standard. This is the only reason I would not use the Chapel again as, having a very poor phone signal it made it difficult to keep in touch with my elderly father who was home on his own.
