Featured in ‘25 Beautiful Homes’ magazine, The Chapel, Chichester is a relaxed, open plan space that combines sleek, polished style with laid-back fun.

Perfectly situated just one mile from Chichester’s bustling city centre, there are sandy beaches in easy reach, and plenty of countryside to explore… making the Chapel an ideal holiday bolthole for everyone.

Underneath the spectacular vaulted ceilings awaits a cosy wood-burning stove to warm your evenings, as you snuggle up to a film on the Smart TV. Alternatively, challenge your loved ones to a game of snooker, fire up the Sonos sound system, or tinkle the ivories on one of two pianos!

You’ll find the chef-worthy kitchen at the rear of the chapel; a vibrant, quirky space that’s peppered with sociable spots. Chat with the designated chef over a glass of wine at the kitchen island or enjoy a coffee at the charming breakfast nook. Of course, there’s also an inviting dining table for celebratory feasts.

If the sun is shining, you may prefer to head out to the south-facing garden and sun terrace for a sizzling barbecue. Along with al fresco dining, you can challenge your loved ones to a vigorous round of ping-pong – a great way to work up an appetite!

Linger outside awhile, chatting and laughing together until the stars appear, then take your pick from one of five stylish bedrooms.

You’ll find the superking master room, complete with its luxurious en-suite shower, on the first floor, along with a second kingsize room that features an en-suite bathroom. There’s also a mezzanine ‘chill-out’ area that’s perfect for curling up with a good book.
