A exceptional converted chapel featuring stained glass windows and ornate ceilings, a unique holiday home for a large get-together.

Dales Chapel, formerly a Methodist chapel which dates back to the late 1800s, provides a spacious and characterful holiday home. The Grade ll listed chapel conversion combines original character with contemporary living to great effect and is situated in the market town of Middleton-in-Teesdale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and historically the most northern of the Yorkshire Dales. The property retains many original features including stained glass windows and an ornate ceiling to the striking second floor open-plan entertainment area with snooker table, home cinema area, two seating areas with multi-fuel stoves set in limestone fire surrounds and bar area with built-in dishwasher and fridge and granite work surfaces. Middleton-in-Teesdale has pubs serving food, shops and tea rooms and there is plenty to keep you occupied. The Pennine Way passes through the village and half an hour’s brisk walk brings you to Low Force, the first of a series of spectacular waterfalls in the area. One of Middleton’s attractions is High Force Waterfall - England’s largest single-drop waterfall - and there’s a lovely walk popular with families. Barnard Castle and Bowes Museum are easily reached and the area offers walking and cycling for all abilities. Selset or Grassholm reservoirs are nearby for fishing and sailing. The splendid scenery encourages all kinds of outdoor pursuits, from cycling along the C2C route and cross-country hacks, to watersports and wonderful walks. This charming market town is more like a big village, framed by the Pennine Fells and nestling beside the River Tees. Enjoy its delightfully old-fashioned and relaxing atmosphere. The Lake District is a 45-minute drive away and well worth a visit. Shop 20 yards, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

    very interesting location many things to visit limited parking facilities

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you. We’re pleased you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately, the limited parking is beyond our control. As this was previously a village chapel, most people walked to service, so parking wasn’t an issue. Hopefully, the rest of your stay made up for that.

    As you can see from my ratings of Dales Chapel, Springfield House we loved it, the Chapel has been converted into a wonderful place to stay for a holiday, in fact I would love to live there, it was everything I'd hoped for and more. I took my family there to celebrate my 70th birthday so there were 3 generations, we took games but there was no need, everything there you could want, games for young children, full size snooker table kept teenage boys occupied but best of all the Wii, so much fun had by all age groups, just perfect. Thank you also to Tarnia she had to come & let us in on our last day because my husband who had insisted we all do a sweep of rooms to make sure we hadn't left anything was the only one to do so, left sat nav inside, now why am I not surprised!!! Hope to return one day in the not to distant future 😄👍

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you so much for your kind words. I’m so glad it was a memorable birthday celebration, and we would love to welcome you all back again.

    Brilliant property in wonderful location. Lucky with weather at end of March for going out but if it hadn't been there was a great selection of things to do in the house. Wonderful snooker table - the lads were in heaven. A marvellous little sitting room full of children's toys and books. Our three year old was in heaven too. Bedrooms a bit noisy was only downside but not easy to rectify how property converted with the wooden floors. The décor of the bedrooms however was beautifully done. A lovely touch was a welcome basket holding lovely local cheese, crackers, butter, milk, easter fancies, coffee, tea, sugar, biscuits. Everything in fact for an afternoon tea.
