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.

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. You can even get to the Lake District in an hour by car. For those who prefer a coastal landscape, the Fylde Coast whose popular resorts include Blackpool and Lytham St Anne’s, is also within an hour’s drive. For those who prefer to leave the car behind, there are many beautiful walks in and around the area. Other activities available locally include golf and fishing. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

    We loved this place, it was so cosy and welcoming, the owner Laura was lovely and the house had everything we needed, it’s close to the market square yet was quiet at night and we weren’t disturbed by traffic noise at all - would definitely recommend this gem

    My wife and I have been booking self catering holiday cottages and apartments in the UK and Old Chapel House is certainly at the top of the list when it comes to location, interior design and facilities. Ideal location to tour the area and visit the market towns of Lancashire.

    The Old Chapel House was perfect for a weekend with friends (3 other couples) whilst attending a wedding in the Ribble valley. Laura was super friendly and helpful, ensuring we had everything we needed including local dining recommendations. Everyone in our group commented on what a great find the house was. It would be perfect for a weekend of exploring the local countryside or a peaceful get away with family and friends. I would definitely recommend.

    We had a very enjoyable long weekend at this beautiful house which was a perfect place to be with our close family for our golden wedding celebration. The house was obviously renovated with love and care and we send our congratulations to Laura, the owner. A lot of thought had been given to furnishings etc and it was well-fitted out for visitors. We were welcomed by Laura and shown round the house and spent our first evening sitting round the dining table being served by our personal chef who cooked a delicious celebration meal. ( Details have been left with Laura.) Local amenities were only a few yards away and the area was very scenic and unspoiled. All of us would highly recommend a visit to this property and we thank Laura for sharing her beautiful house with us.

    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.
