Award winning Architect designed conversion of a Methodist Chapel, which was a place of worship for 150 years until being converted to a home in 2000 when it featured in 'LIVING ETC. MAGAZINE'. It has been available to rent as a holiday home since late 2015. The sympathetic modern conversion retains the original features such as the double height ceiling and arched windows meaning the space is very light and airy, perfect for a relaxing break. At Ground Floor the Living / Kitchen / Dining Areas. An ‘L’ shaped sofa provides ample space for you to relax with freeview smart TV & blu-ray player to keep you entertained and a wood burning stove to add to the heat and the ambience of your stay. The Kitchen area has a 4 plate electric hob together with both fan and conventional ovens, a large fridge/freezer, plenty of utensils, cutlery, saucepans, frying pan, small wok and oven dishes. Not to mention the kettle, 4 slice toaster, microwave oven and cafetiere. There is a dishwasher below the sink and hidden away under the stairs is a washing machine. The Dining Area has a table and chairs to seat four very comfortably. There is ample crockery, cutlery and glassware. A full inventory is emailed prior to your arrival so you are aware of what to expect from the kitchen contents. This is only to ensure that you do not duplicate any items by bringing them from home uneccessarily to hopefully help to reduce your luggage. At the Mezzanine level there are two Bedroom areas and a Bathroom. The two Bed areas have glass balustrade viewing to the Living Area below. The Master Bedroom area has a king size bed and side boards with shelving below and reading lamps above. This area is provided with a DAB radio alarm clock and a waste bin. The Second Bedroom area has a small (4ft wide) double bed with bed side table, shelf and bed side lamp and waste bin. The Bathroom appears modest from the outside, but is comfortably equipped with an electric towel rail, washbasin, WC and bath with shower facilities over. Linking these three areas is a landing with a substantial amount of wardrobe and storage space including an airing cupboard with it's own hanging rail, wardrobe hanging rails, hangers, shelving and a shoe rack. There is a hair dryer, an iron, ironing board and folding clothes horse for your use should you require them. TOWELS AND LINEN SUPPLIED Each bed is provided with BEDDING: Mattress, Mattress Topper, 2 x mattress protectors per bed, 4 pillows per bed, 2 x pillow protectors per pillow, Duvet and 1 x duvet protector per duvet, 1 x pillow case per pillow, 1 x fitted sheet per bed and 1 x duvet cover per bed ALL changed weekly or before each stay whichever is sooner. A freshly laundered fleece blanket is also provided. BATHROOM is supplied with: Towels (4 bath sheets, 2 hand towels and 2 bath mats, and 4 face cloths ALL changed weekly or before each stay whichever is sooner and toilet rolls are provided for your stay. If you run out of toilet rolls we ask that you provide more yourself. If your stay lasts over a week the beds can at your request be changed for you during the weekly clean. We keep the kitchen stocked with some BASIC ESSENTIALS such as dishwasher tabs, soap, hand cream, washing up liquid, salt, pepper, laundry detergent, fabric conditioner, a first aid kit, bin bags, tea and hand towels and dish cloths. To welcome you upon arrival the kitchen is stocked with a limited supply of Clipper tea bags and coffee and hot chocolate sachets with brown and white sugar sachets and a pack of local hand made biscuits (usually shortbread). A pint of fresh milk will be available in the fridge. The kitchen is stocked with freshly supplied salt pepper and olive oil. All of these complimentary items are provided as standard and are genuinely complimentary i.e. not built into the price we charge you. We do not provide food hampers or similar and this in turn is reflected in our lower prices. !!CHILDREN!! : Due to the nature of the property, especially at the Mezzanine level, while we encourage 'Babes~in~arms', but we do not feel it suitable for 'mobile' children between 9 months and 7 years old. Sorry. YOUNG BABES AND CHILDREN AGED 8 AND ABOVE ARE WELCOME. For reasons of safety due to the fact that there is a Mezzanine floor above ground level separated only by a handrail and glass panel to (adult) waist height young children may be at risk of falling if they climb onto the rail. These stipulations are for general guidance only. Obviously it is your responsibility to ensure your children's safety. PLEASE ASK if you have any questions about this aspect. We are always happy to help with advice/further photos etc. Please also see the full range of photos in the listing. Because we have highlighted the potential dangers we accept no responsibility for injury or other consequence of a fall accidental or otherwise. Clearly the property is unsuitable for those of any age who sleepwalk. Although it is open plan it is not possible to see the bed in the other room when you are in bed yourself nor is it possible to see the beds properly from downstairs. Your child's safety is your own responsibility at all times. BABES~IN~ARMS: We have a good range of equipment for babies staying at The Chapel including a travel cot with bedding, a secure high chair, appropriate cutlery and crockery, play mat, change mat with replacement washable covers, Potty, and a baby bath with bath toys. We have made up 2 storage bags to help you, one containing bedding items including sleep bags and one containing washing, changing and feeding items. Hopefully this will help reduce the space taken up in your car for the journey here! We have some suitable cot linen, blankets, a sleep bag and towels, but you'll probably want to bring your own in addition. All of the baby equipment is of a good quality and is checked and steam cleaned before and after each use. Please let us know when you book if you would like to use these facilities so that we may prepare them ahead of your arrival. DOGS & PETS: Sorry, but due to the nature of the property and lack of enclosed garden, we do not feel it suitable for animals to stay. CHANGE OVER DAY: Generally the change over day is Friday, however for those long weekenders or mid-week breaks Monday can be arranged. Please feel free to contact us if another day would be preferable and we'll see what we can do. Arrive: anytime after 3.00 PM. The Chapel may be ready earlier on occasion and we are happy to text you if you let us know in advance that you'd like to know if this is the case. Vacate: before 10:15am. The Chapel is immaculately presented and PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED and checked between each visit. In addition to this there is no need to remember to put the bins out for collection as this will also be done for you. WI-FI / INTERNET ACCESS: Wi-fi / Internet access is available. Details for connection are found in the information welcome pack. This also means you can use the smart tv to access catch up tv using BBC iplayer, itv player, All4 etc. HEATING: Each of the main areas of The Chapel has its own individually controllable energy efficient electric heater (the night stores in some of the photos have been replaced) which is pre-programmed, but allows you to easily override the settings should you need to. For those of you who wish to, the wood burning stove is available for use. We ask that you only use the complimentary well seasoned wood and kindling provided. Additional wood can be purchased for a (small economical) fee during your stay. More

About the neighbourhood
Beautiful rural historic part of the English countryside. Traditionally a 'playground' for visiting royalty this ensured the preservation of the rural character of the smallest county. More recently predominantly farming , with lovely countryside perfect for walks, cycle rides and getting close to nature. R.Water is internationally famous for it's birdlife and the two beautiful nature reserves on it's shores.Ospreys are now well established here and return to the Water each year, but the number of species of birdlife now at R. Water is immense. Despite an increase in visitor numbers recently Rutland retains an Olde World charm and laid back character. Much in Little is the County motto and there is too much enjoy and explore.
Getting around
It's preferable to have a car as Wing is a small village with only a limited bus service. Many local Taxi firms available. It's possible to walk to Rutland Water, if you are fairly fit, but it is a climb to return as Wing is on a hill overlooking The Chater Valley. By car it's about 5 mins to the nearest point on Rutland Water or 20 mins or so to the opposite shore. Nearby Shaws Coaches run outings all over the UK. Trains run from Oakham, 10 mins away by road, or Kettering, which is about half an hour by road.
