The Experience

Chapel House has its very own sense of ‘hygge’ and special charm. Peter and Jane have that clever gift of creating an inviting, open-house aura, so there will be a roaring fire when it’s nippy, snug sofas and books to browse, chats over tea and a slice of cake or tot of whisky or wine, thick cotton robes, peaceful airy bedrooms…

The guest wing is beyond the kitchen and feels very private. The ground floor bedroom has doors out to the garden; the upstairs room has a large window leading out to a little roof terrace with seating – a popular suntrap. Jane loves to rustle up generous breakfasts – fresh fruit salad and yogurts, croissants, local sausages and bacon. Packed lunches too if you’re going fishing – Peter can arrange a day on the river Test.

Explore historic Salisbury and Winchester, visit Stonehenge and NT Mottisfont Abbey and Stockbridge Down – all within 11 miles. Relax in the vaulted sitting room on your return home – cheerful Labradors, Yoyo and Mango, will greet you.

Accommodation

Reviews

It was a treat on a rainy day to visit this warm and welcoming house with its friendly and interesting owners. I felt very at home and would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Chapel House for a wonderful relaxing stay in the depths of the Hampshire countryside. If you happen to love fly fishing, I cannot think of anywhere better!

Beds were heavenly. Excellent water pressure in the showers. There is a lovely fireplace and super comfortable couches to curl up on and spend a quite afternoon daydreaming or perusing Peter and Jane’s extensive book collection. We headed off fishing, then enjoyed a day trip exploring where Jane Austen lived in Chawton.

Steve, New york

We spent three fun-filled days at the Mantles’ enchanting Hampshire “Chapel House” in early June 2019. Our lovely room and bath in the brand new (very private) wing of the house looked out onto a beautiful garden with huge sheep grazing in the adjacent pasture. Two delicious dinners at Chapel House and one at an excellent pub in Stockbridge, as well as delightful wicker basket lunches at two huts on two different beats on the Test were memorable. Jane and Peter are the ultimate hosts, warm, welcoming and eager to share their very special part of England with us.

The village is situated in the beautiful Valley of the River Test, birthplace of flyfishing. Peter arranged two days of guided fishing on the Test, which was a thrill for Steve. There are a number of interesting day trips that the Mantle’s are happy to arrange. Chapel House, as the name implies, was formerly a chapel, but has been renovated into a large and comfortable house. Our accommodations were very comfortable, and the highlight is Jane’s cooking and Peter’s uniquely engaging dinner conversation. They are terrific hosts, and make everyone feel welcome and at home.

Location

The neighbourhood

Nether Wallop is a small village in an area of prime chalk streams; Chapel House is down a gravel drive lined with espaliered pear trees. Attractive Stockbridge, three miles away, has an excellent deli Thyme & Tides, cafes and a good pub; there are more good pubs in Longstock (nearly three miles) and Houghton (five miles). The fishing on the river Test is near Romsey – about 25 minutes by car. Grateley station is three miles and Peter is happy to pick you up – there’s no bus.

Local points of interest from Peter Mantle

  • Salisbury & its fabulous cathedral, which, as even the Russians now know, has the tallest spire in Europe. Now Novichok-free...
  • Winchester & its equally fine & huge cathedral with Isaac Walton’s tomb and Jane Austen’s grave; famous private school and great shopping.
  • Stonehenge, a must-see, although too commercialised and tightly-managed for our taste
  • The pretty town of Stockbridge - great quirky shops, pubs and live trout swimming in the main street. Mind your head in the low-ceilinged Greyhound bar.
  • National Trust gardens at Mottisfont Abbey - stunning.
  • Countless gentle walks in ancient woodlands or on butterfly-filled chalk Downs; perfect pastoral scenery; quintessential England...

Introducing

Peter Mantle

Peter's father once described his career as "the perfect downward spiral"! Law, accountancy, financial journalism, publishing. A keen fly fisher, he found a fishing lodge in Ireland, which he and Jane restored and ran for years; award-winning Delphi Lodge was chosen as one of the '1,000 Places To See Before You Die'. Delphi Club in the Bahamas was their next creation; Chapel House is their latest venture.
