Wonderful place to stay - 22nd March 2019
This is a beautifully converted chapel, with huge attention to detail and design, obviously a little quirky, but so thoughtfully laid out. Light and bright with superb bed and bedding, thick grey carpet, comfortable seating area, very well equipped kitchen area, and plumbing that works extremely well. A thoughtful welcome pack awaited us, a lovely greeting from the charming owner, brochures clearly visible showing how everything in the kitchen works. The standard of this property is hard to beat! - 26th February 2019
Amazing place, beautiful surrounding. very comfortable. Prof Johannes H Smit - 30th July 2018
The owner is very helpful and Nayland is a delightful village. Bob Jackson - 28th May 2018
Highly recommended. Excellent throughout and a wonderfully helpful host. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ This is a truly unique place, full of history and with quality furnishings perfectly complementing the first class conversion work. The owner has taken great care in choosing every detail and provided a warm and informative welcome. Ideal for couples wanting a high quality break in a very special village. Nayland is a beautiful gem of a village with a huge history in every building, well worth exploring in its own right.Mr Jackson - 25th May 2018
What a wonderful 2 nights we had at The Old Chapel Annexe. Everything about it is just perfect. Who would of thought that an old church would be a nice place to say? Believe us it is! So tastefully decorated and comfortably appointed and the owner so welcoming and friendly. Thank you so much.The Bannisters - 6th August 2017
