    “Had a fantastic few days in this property.”

    The village was great. We loved the personnel touches Tracey and Gary left. Villages were very nice and welcoming. Cottage was beautiful and well equipped. We would definitely recommend anyone staying here for the location to the lakes or just to chill for a few days. We watched lambs being born fox’s and otters near the village.

The property

This wonderful 19th century converted Methodist chapel lies in the heart of the Eden Valley, in the quiet and peaceful village of Sandford. Chapel Cottage offers comfortable and unique accommodation for a couple, two couples or a small family of four wanting to take advantage of this fantastic location; equidistant from the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks, as well as the North Pennines AONB, there are plenty of opportunities to explore the surrounding countryside on foot or bicycle. Enter the property and discover a homely sitting room with a plus sofa, placed in front of the lovely woodburning stove, alongside the TV with Blu-ray player, where you can enjoy a family movie night, curled up by the fire. Step into the kitchen/diner, where the dining table offers seating for the whole group to enjoy a meal together, with a bench that was reclaimed from the chapel when it was renovated, plus a well-equipped, contemporary kitchen, styled with neutral tones, offering a range of appliances to assist you with all of your culinary requirements. Upstairs are two bedrooms; a double with exposed stone feature wall and a charming twin with an exposed stone feature wall and sloping ceiling with Velux window offering a lovely countryside view, along with a family shower room, where you can all prepare for each day. Outside, there is roadside parking for one car, while at the front there is a charming, enclosed yard with seating, ideal for a morning coffee and a spot of breakfast in the sunshine. Sandford village has a lovely pub that is just a short walk away, while the historic town of Appleby-in-Westmoreland is just over four miles away, offering a wider selection of amenities and attractions. Resting in a loop of the River Eden and overlooked by the Pennine mountain range and offering distant views of the Lake District fells, this picturesque town offers fantastic walking and cycling opportunities, including the Cumbria Cycle Way, Westmorland Way, Pennine Way and the Coast to Coast Walk, as well as giving you the chance to watch steam trains pass by along the Settle-Carlisle railway. On the fringes of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Kirkby Stephen boasts old cobbled streets, fascinating, traditional architecture and delightful picnic spots with spectacular views of the North Pennine Ridge.

About the location

APPLEBY-IN-WESTMORLAND

Penrith 14 miles.

The historic town of Appleby-in-Westmorland lies in a loop of the River Eden and is overlooked by the North Pennines, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with the Lake District Fells showing on the western horizon. Set at the heart of the lush Eden Valley and steeped in history, this is one of the loveliest towns in the north of England and was originally the county town of Westmorland. Appleby is nestled between the Lakes and Yorkshire Dales, so guests can enjoy the contrasting scenery of these two National Parks, plus numerous walking and cycling opportunities as well as the fantastic leisure centre in the town. Appleby has a wonderful selection of quality independent shops, cafes and delicatessens selling locally produced food and crafts. The picturesque street of Boroughgate, with some interesting old buildings, is at the heart of the town and links the well-preserved Norman Castle with the fine medieval Church of St. Lawrence. Appleby is a major stop on the Settle-Carlisle Railway, which is one of the most beautiful railway journeys in Britain, and still today many of the old steam trains wend their way along this line and over the historic and awe-inspiring Ribblehead viaduct. With the delightful Ullswater and the magnificent Lake District within easy reach, this is an ideal holiday location.

Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
