This property is part of our English Country Cottages collection

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


Voted as one of the 50 coolest cottages in the UK - Sunday Times 2018, this Grade II listed holiday home is the perfect base for a family break away.

Dating back to the 18th century, this Grade II listed former Baptist Chapel has been lovingly converted into a tastefully decorated and contemporary holiday home, which exudes luxury and comfort. Successfully combining all of its original character and charm with the modern comforts guests expect from a holiday home, the property offers a unique experience.
On the ground floor is a fabulous open plan living space, ideal for families and friends to spend quality time together. Perfect for entertaining, the modern and well equipped kitchen boasts a huge central island with polished concrete worktops and glamorous bar stools. The dining area which is dominated by a reclaimed stone pillar, offers an opportunity for more formal dining. The double height living area, furnished with leather Chesterfield sofas and original Victorian range with gel effect fire, is the perfect place to relax and unwind. For convenience, there is also a downstairs toilet and cloakroom for coats and boots.
Upstairs there are four beautifully presented bedrooms, the master of which has flat screen TV and en-suite with toilet, shower cubicle and large vanity area with double wash basin. A well-appointed family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation.
The galleried landing which overlooks the downstairs living area showcases exposed stone work, original timbers and two beautiful chapel windows which flood light into the property, further enhanced by the stunning light fittings.
There is private parking for 3 cars and a free car park opposite for vehicles, and the entrance is down the side through two large doors. To the rear is a lovely patio with a table and chairs which is accessed via French windows from the kitchen area.
Situated in one of the oldest parts of Barnoldswick, and only 100 yards away from local shops, pubs and restaurants, Old Chapel House is well located for those who like to have a wide range of amenities right on their doorstep. Perfect for those who like to be pampered, Old Chapel House is attached to a fantastic beauty salon/spa. Converted by the same owner from a dilapidated second–hand furniture shop, guests can experience a wide range of relaxing treatments (payable extra), including Elemis facials, massages and much more. Please be aware any treatments must be booked directly with the salon prior to arrival to avoid disappointment, please state you are guests staying at the Old Chapel House when booking.
The market town of Barnoldswick is steeped in living history. Its ancient heritage dates back to Anglo Saxon times and it was even mentioned in the Domesday Book. The town is well known for its industrial heritage. Aside from having the highest point of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, Barnoldswick is famous for being the place where Rolls-Royce developed the jet engine in the Second World War. There’s also the town’s most iconic landmark, Bancroft Mill, with its working steam engine. The town has a good variety of shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants, as well as a twice weekly market.
Located just outside the Yorkshire Dales on the Yorkshire/Lancashire border, Old Chapel House is well positioned to visit many local and national treasures, making it a great touring base. Places of interest within easy driving distance include Skipton, Bolton Abbey, Haworth/Bronte Country, Yorkshire Dales, Ribble Valley and the Forest of Bowland, which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Old Chapel House. The property is stunning, spacious, clean, well equipped and has four lovely, very comfortable bedrooms. It was the perfect place to enjoy our family weekend and ideal for a large group, but also would be for a couple or smaller family. It also has a lovely outdoor space to relax or entertain. Laura the owner was really helpful prior to our stay and was able to recommend places to eat and local shops nearby where we could purchase party items for the celebration we had planned and also provided some essentials & goodies which was lovely. Not far from the property is the canal which provided a lovely walk, there is also a small cafe on the canal too. Skipton and Bolton are also a short drive away. The town, which is easily accessible and only a few steps away has plenty of shops and places to eat. I would highly recommend and will look forward to booking again.

    We booked a Christmas break and had the most wonderful stay. The property is stunning, sumptuous and very comfortable. The owner was very helpful and gave us a run through of the property at the beginning of our stay. This property is an absolute gem and many wonderful, family, memories were made. Thank you, Laura.

    The Old Chapel We recently spent a week in the old chapel with four of our friends. Everything was just first class from start to finish. We were warmly welcomed by the owner, who could not have been more helpful, not only in showing us around the property but also in giving us helpful informa!on about the town and surrounding area. The property itself is so comfortable and no expense has been spared in its renova!on. With a well equipped kitchen, spacious lounge area and comfortable beds, what more could you want? There is ample of road parking for three vehicles at the front of the property and the enclosed area at the back has ample seating and a barbeque. We would highly recommend this property.

    Amazing cottage, beautifully furnished with everything you need for a fantastic family holiday week in mixed weather. Ideally situated between places of interest in Lancashire and Yorkshire. Thoroughly would recommend this home from home.

    The house is beautiful and well presented but for our family needs we all prefer en- suite bedrooms and a garden . However I would recommend the property to others .
