From its lush countryside hamlets to its sprawling, bustling cityscapes, England’s chock full of totally gorgeous (and really bloody old) churches. There are so many of them in England, in fact, that loads of them aren’t actually churches any more. They’ve been converted into things like houses, breweries, bars and clubs – not to mention, of course, Airbnbs.
A few months ago Airbnb introduced a new feature that allows travellers to filter homes by new categories. One of those filters is ‘historical homes’ and lots of the rentals happen to be churches.
In other words, it’s never been easier to trek off for a more, erm, ecclesiastical holiday. So, from Methodist clock-tower penthouses and Love Island-style Victorian churches to quaint converted chapels, below we’ve found five incredible converted churches you can rent via Airbnb.
