The Old Chapel



The Old Chapel was originally built as a Baptist Church around 1836.

It has been carefully restored and updated to provide quiet and relaxing self-catering Bed & Breakfast accommodation in the heart of The New Forest.

the old Chapel is situated opposite the owners’ house on the other side of the courtyard driveway, allowing you complete freedom and independence, the lodge is along side of the owners house and the forge is on the lane opposite the drive way

 The Old Chapel sits in the New Forest National Park in the charming village of Sway/Brockenhurst. Sway village has its own shops, post office, 2 excellent pubs, café and butcher,with the New Forest on your doorstep, you can expect to see ponies and donkeys grazing on the other side of the driveway cattle grid.  

The Old Chapel is child and dog friendly with forest access onto a quiet lane, so there are always Ponies, Donkeys and roaming cattle to give that New Forest feel.

Each room has a patio garden for enjoying breakfast, coffee or a glass of wine in the sunshine

The owner, Joanna will try to ensure that your stay is perfect, you need only ask, and if she can, she will get it for you.

As if the beautiful setting wasn’t enough or the charming courtyard, you really MUST SEE the inside to believe the luxurious and spacious rooms.
