Escape everyday life and embrace going off-grid at Wesleyan Chapel...

Renovated with every modern luxury in mind, step inside this recently refurbished 19th-century chapel via the picturesque entrance vestibule and find a magical blend of high-quality craftsmanship, rich fabrics, and traditional features. A double-aspect log burner sits at the heart of the room, with original timber beamed ceilings, church pews and arched windows alongside all of the modern home comforts you could wish for on a luxury self-catering getaway in Yorkshire.

Gather your group together in the open plan modern kitchen and dining space, complete with a choice of coffee machines, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and electric aga. Indulge in breakfast at the kitchen island sitting on the high stools, or entertain lengthy evening meals around the large dining table. Standing proud at the heart of the home is the two-way log-burning stove which creates a warming atmosphere, separating the living and dining area.

Catch up in the kitchen or stay cosy by the flickering fireside whilst watching the enticing scenes outdoors in the comfortable living area. A blend of breathtaking scenery and incomparable grandeur combine to make Wesleyan Chapel a truly five-star Yorkshire holiday destination.

Wesleyan Chapel sleeps up to eight guests in four stylish double bedrooms, which can be found down a stone staircase on the lower ground floor. Each bedroom, with its private bathroom, is just as luxurious as the next; rich in personality with characterful furnishings and elaborate wallpapers.

Bedroom one has a stylish 4'6 double bed with an en-suite bathroom comprising a bath and an overhead shower. Bedroom two has a spacious 6' super king bed which can be split into twin beds on request, perfect for children. The family bathroom offers a roll-top bath, perfect for soaking muscles after a long day exploring the Yorkshire Dales. A door leads outside to the terrace with a private seating area in bedroom three, where this is also an ensuite bathroom with bath and overhead shower. Bedroom four offers a 4'6 four poster bed with south-facing views and an en-suite shower room.

The great outdoors won't keep guests inside these pretty walls for long, no matter how sumptuous. Step outside from the lower floor to a garden patio to the South side of the house. Further round with views over the river and fields is a second area with comfortable outdoor seating and a large gas BBQ. Step into the bubbling hot tub to enjoy the panoramic views of the Yorkshire Dales and beyond in perfect privacy and tranquillity.

Wesleyan Chapel is dog friendly, allowing two well-behaved dogs (at an additional charge). Families with children and infants are welcome, with a travel cot, high chair and stair gate available on request.

The modern kitchen has an easy to use electric Aga and hob, a fridge, freezer, Smeg coffee machine (flat pods), Nespresso coffee machine (standard pods), dishwasher, island with two stools and a dining table seating eight guests, plus a full kitchen inventory for that home-from-home experience. Wesleyan Chapel includes high-quality bed linen, towels, bathrobes, and luxury toiletries.

There is a starter pack for the kitchen, fire, and washroom, and of course a locally sourced welcome hamper. The property has limited mobile signal, however, it offers good wi-fi throughout.

The off-street parking area for 3-4 cars is across the road from the entrance to Wesleyan Chapel. The house layout is upside down, with the bedrooms and bathrooms on the lower floor and the large open-plan living, kitchen and dining area on the ground floor. There is a step between the kitchen and the sitting area, and a double-sided log burner separates the spaces. A staircase leads down to the four bedrooms, the bathrooms and the garden. The garden is enclosed, and the hot tub is on the same lower floor as the bedrooms. There are two alfresco seating areas around the house.

Three bedrooms are en-suite, and each has a 4ft6 double bed. Once inside the ground floor is on one level, with one step into the ground floor bedroom and en-suite bathroom. There is a ground-floor cloakroom off the entrance hall.

Upstairs both bedrooms are en-suite with showers separate to the bath tubs. The sn-suite in bedroom 3 is a shower room, whilst the others have a shower over a bath. Bedroom 3 has a 6' super-king bed which is zip and link and can be configured as twin beds, and uses the large bathroom opposite.
