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

An exceptional converted chapel featuring many original features including stained glass windows and ornate ceilings, a unique holiday home for a large get-together. Dales Chapel is ideal for large groups of family or friends. It is a former Methodist chapel which dates back to the late 1800s and 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. This entertainment room has a full size snooker table, fussball table, home cinema area with HD projector, Sky Q, DVD, Wii and surround sound speakers, and two seating areas to relax with wood burners set in limestone fire surrounds either side of a bar area with 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 area is perfect for walkers of all ages and abilities, with several footpaths leading from the village. 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 here. The area offers an abundance of walking and cycling for all abilities. Selset and 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.
Barnard Castle is a beautiful old market town 10 miles away, and is home to the magnificent Bowes Museum, famous for its mechanical silver swan. Killhope Lead Mine is within a thirty-minute drive, as is Bishop Auckland, where the spectacular outdoor Kynren show takes place every year during the summer months. Beautiful Durham city and The Lake District are approximately a 50-minute drive away and well worth a visit. Shop 20 yards, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

    This is a warm, spacious and well equipped holiday home suitable for a mixed age group. Having a bedroom on the ground floor for older guests. And lots to do for the younger guests, they have their own play room. So suitable for everyone from 1 to 100. Lovely local amenities and walks.

    The house is absolutely beautiful and modern. I and all my guests were very surprised when we arrived there. I was celebrating my 30th birthday and i couldn't imagine better place to celebrate. There were many things to do for kids and adults. I wish to come back there again.

    We visited Dales Chapel (Springfield House) for a family gathering to celebrate a 40th birthday. The house is fantastic for a large family group and Sam was an amazing host and honestly could not have made us feel more welcome.
