Description

A rare chance for the whole family to stay in a converted chapel providing spacious rooms, a large dining table and even a games room.

The Old Chapel Retreat, a charming, detached, 19th-century chapel has been skilfully restored to retain much character and charm throughout. It provides quirky, clever holiday accommodation whilst retaining some original stone floors and walls. Perfectly located in the heart of this pretty picture postcard village with quaint inns and tea rooms. Within walking distance is the medieval grand fortress of Raby Castle with its 200-acre deer park surrounding the castle. Barnard Castle, a thriving market town, is only 5 miles with exciting shops and pubs. Auckland Castle, home of the Bishop of Durham and the wonderful nature reserve at Low Barns, is also close by. Beamish Museum lies only 20 miles away where life in the 1800s/1900s can be relived in this working museum. Motor enthusiasts may like to visit Croft Circuit only 12 miles. Durham city, only 17 miles, has a magnificent castle dating back to 1072, a beautiful cathedral, fine shops, galleries and eateries. Try a day exploring the magnificent Roman Wall country in Hexham and Corbridge, easily reached in under an hour and close to the Pennines. A little further venture to Northumberland taking in the magnificent heritage coastal route, stopping off to see Alnwick and explore the castle used to film Robin Hood, Harry Potter and Elizabeth. Meander through the cobbled streets, or visit the enchanting Alnwick Gardens with one of the largest Treehouse restaurants and water fountains. Relax with a drink and barbecue in the enclosed courtyard area after a day out exploring this exciting area or head up to the top floor for a relaxing game of pool in the games room. Shop and pub 25 yards.

    Very comfortable and well equipped for our 50th birthday get together. Convenient for local shops and pub. More outdoor space would be nice but the character of the property made up for it.

    We booked this cottage for a long weekend to accommodate family travelling to our wedding so that we could all stay together as it was a small wedding. The Old Chapel was ideal for this purpose. Plenty of space to either stay together or have a bit of peace and quiet. Lovely little restaurant over the road serving a good Sunday Lunch

    Amazing property with everything you could need there. Lots of space the kids loved the games room. We will be stopping there again & i think it will be hard to find somewhere else that will live up to this house.

    The only downside was the lack of sound proofing which made the house very noisy with children running about otherwise it was lovely
