About Chaplain's House

On the edge of the Tyntesfield estate, this Gothic Revival style house makes a striking holiday escape.

Live in Victorian grandeur in this striking three-bedroom house. Carefully curated to retain its special Gothic Revival style, Chaplain’s House offers a rare opportunity to stay in an authentic 18th-century building. It’s set over three floors where you’ll find period features in all its rooms from fireplaces and window seats to the dark wooden floors. 

You’ll be on the edge of the formal gardens and wider estate of Tyntesfield. Be sure to explore the main house free of charge, where you’ll find many similarities to the interior of Chaplain’s. 

Further afield, the Somerset Levels are dotted with fascinating villages, cosy country pubs, and miles of stunning walking routes. Hop on the M5 and drive seven miles east to Bristol for its famous suspension bridge and bustling harbour.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
