“Exceptional”
Reviewed April 18, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We are a small group of 30 somethings who had lots to celebrate with a birthday, new job in the bag, an 8 yr wedding anniversary as well as reminiscing about a wedding last year. Boy, did we pick the right place to celebrate in! The location of the Church could not be better. Oswestry is a sweet town with numerous quality pubs and restaurants (handy, if like us you love a pint of ale), small shops to while away in and lovely walks via Offa's Dyke on the doorstep. Oswestry itself was not the best bit about our stay though.The Church won hands down. From the open plan space, to the fine collection of art that makes every corner a discovery, this is an uber-cool property that has been designed by owners with exceptional taste! The property invites you to be social due to the layout of the kitchen, living and dining area and the mezzanine upstairs gave us another space to hang out in for a change of atmosphere. The bedrooms and bathrooms are sumptuous and spacious with attention to detail throughout all of the finishing touches, meaning that often we chose to stay in rather than venture out, because it was the coolest place to be anyway! I literally cannot recommend this place enough. It offers genuine value for money, as it is so well equipped to a really high spec at a good price. Huge thank you to Simon for sharing his space with the world. If I owned it I'd be keeping it all to myself, but we are already planning our next trip!

“Beautiful house”
Reviewed April 15, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed in this lovely house over the Easter break. Everything was very comfortable and the open plan area was fabulous. The children loved it and there was a small playground 2 minutes away which they enjoyed.

“Stunning accommodation in a superb location. We loved it!!”
Reviewed April 12, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Highly recommended!!! The Church has to be seen to appreciate it's absolutely stunning and unique features. On the practical side, it is immaculately clean and equipped to the highest standard with everything that you need for a perfect break. Regarding the accommodation, The Church boasts an eclectic and stunning array of interior design and artefacts. We managed to discover something new on each day of our visit, and the fantastic disco lights were the icing on the cake for our daughter's 9th birthday! Our 11 year old son quite frankly had to be enticed away from the ultra cool mezzanine level, and our birthday girl will never forget her moment of discovering the sumptuous golden bed concealed behind the bookcase!!! My parents who joined us for an evening meal are still marvelling about The Church - its appeal equally impressed all generations.
The owners have put heart and soul into creating an outstanding property that cannot fail to put a smile on your face and provide a unique and memorable visit.

“Phenomenal time”
Reviewed February 17, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We had a truly lovely time. The church is well appointed and as soon as we walked in, we were filled with wonder and adventure, after exploring we settled down a little and divide up the rooms and brought the bags in. The artwork and decorations are tasteful, fun and yet quirky, the photos don't really do the place justice.It didn't take long until we all felt at home. It's a prime example of open plan communal living. The bedrooms were comfortable and well equipped albeit without wardrobes, but as comfy as they were there was an urge to spend more time in the main room. We found that we just wanted to be together as a family and enjoy each other's company. Cooking, eating, drinking, playing games, watching TV, reading books. Just existing together in a single space, it was lovely. I would go again anytime.

“WOW!”
Reviewed December 31, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We arrived to what looked like a small brick church. When we step inside we were amazed.
We were meeting our dad for an early Christmas and this place was perfect. The large open living space was made for family get togethers. Nice big dining table which we enjoyed our Chinese takeaway on and also the kitchen island which we sat around the following morning having coffee. Wifi and smart TV were a great bonus.
The bedrooms are also a great size and the beds were very comfy with lovely bedding. The bathrooms were to a very high standard especially the master suite which had a control outside of the shower which told you when it had got to the right temperature! The house had underfloor heating throughout which was a great treat.
Its a must stay and we will definitely be back!

“Think best hotel”
Reviewed December 29, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed here last minute and mid week. Arived late to a warm cosy huge space, high end kitchen, Bosch appliances, beautiful furniture, great art, quirky, incredible beds, fine cotton sheets, stone bath, rainforest shower and a damn good pub less than four minutes away. The Oak.
We will be back, many times as I work in the area.
Thanks to Jane and Becs for making this happen so easily

“Absolutely Amazing.”
Reviewed December 29, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Stay here for 3 nights just before Xmas. This place does not disappoint, from the very well designed spaces, to comfort & extra's galore. Its 2 mins from many shops & restaurants. It's lovely & warm. If we can we will return.
