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.

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 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.
