It’s really difficult to put into words how incredible the Old Church is. It’s over 500 years old and full of interest and curiosity. Staying here felt like a real adventure. The building and surrounding area is so beautiful, and once inside we were amazed by the space, comfort, …

Very cosy and warm due to the aga and beautiful renovation. A thoroughly unique experience which will likely be once in a lifetime. We had a very enjoyable stay and the property even had fast Wi-Fi for our business needs which was an added bonus.

Laura's place is wonderful. A beautifully converted church tucked away in the countryside but not too far from the beach! We celebrated a 30th birthday there with the whole family and we couldn't have asked for a better setting. The church has all the amenities you need including…

Gorgeous property, excellently renovated. I cant believe how old it is! Very green area with lots of walks available. Note - We had a full house and it does run out of water in the shower if everyone uses it one after the other, but the bathtubs upstairs will probably still have…

Rishangles Church is an amazing place to stay. It was such an exciting place to explore and our whole group loved it. The communal spaces were well equipped with everything you need, and the garden was beautiful, with a huge cushioned outside seating area which we'd not spotted …

Response from Laura:
Occasionally guests do not respond to the unique, heritage quality of the Old Church and expect a place that has no 'character' and is kept like a 5* hotel, not a 1000 year old medieval church - I also think Kat didn't find the large cupboard in the kitchen which is well stocked with crockery and glasses, serving platters etc - this is extraordinary and has never happened before! My housekeepers keep the place very clean, but high ceilings are difficult to clean! As for a dead mouse - I will explore!
