Holiday Rental House
Grade II listed former Methodist chapel (1834) with commanding views of open countryside, located along a sleepy single-track lane. The ground floor is an extensive open-plan, split-level, light and airy living space which, by night can be transformed into a cosy, warmly-lit retreat from the rugged landscape outside. The lower level forms the seating area with a log burning stove, wooden floors with comfortable sofas, and occasional African and Middle Eastern rugs. The original arched wooden windows, period furniture and contemporary neutral fabrics all adding to its character. A couple of steps takes you up to the well-equipped kitchen and dining area.

The open-plan nature of this attractive living space compliments a holiday atmosphere and cultivates a sense of togetherness. The staircase, which is split by an imposing king post truss (on the landing) accesses all bedrooms on the first floor. One bedroom has a king size double bed, one a standard double and the third a 4' double (queen). All have wooden floors, colorful scatter rugs and crisp cotton bedding. The bathroom on this floor has a bath with shower over, a hand basin and toilet. All bedrooms and the bathroom have beautiful views of open country. This holiday cottage was highly recommended, in its price range, by the travel editor of The Observer. There is a garden bench outside on the bank for sitting out on. A footpath leads from outside the door up onto the popular High Peak Trail. If you like walking, or if your children would like larking about on the hillside in full view of the house, this is an ideal place. Chapel House is well located for visits to Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Alton Towers, all less than half an hour away across the National Park. Nearby Carsington Water (2 miles) offers a range of activities including nature and cycling trails, rowing, canoeing, windsurfing, sailing and bird watching.More

Nestled on the green hillside, in the friendly, beautiful village near Bakewell, Chapel House and it’s surroundings afforded us a warm and inviting stay in a setting full of character and charm. As we three women sought to find and explore our inner Elizabeth Bennets,...More

We stayed at the Chapel House with our 3 daughers and had a really brilliant holiday. Our host had furnished the house so thoughtfully, so we needed for nothing - there was even a first aid kit and hot water bottle. The Chapel itself is...More

Lovely setting and very cosy accommodation. We loved the village and everyone was very friendly - especially the Gate pub. The owner of Chapel House was extremely helpful and the instructions and local advice was very clear. Highly recommend a visit to Chapel House!

About the neighbourhood
Brassington is an attractive and unspoilt limestone village that nestles on a hillside about 800 feet above sea level. It used to be a centre for the lead-mining industry and has many cottages dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries with Tudor House from 1615, one of the most beautiful. Both village pubs are worth visiting but The Olde Gate (17th Century) was voted Britain's cosiest pub by The Times. Harboro Rocks, less than a mile away, is a popular destination for rock climbing beginners (see photos). Brassington is ideally located for The High Peak Trail (cycling and hiking), Tissington Trail (horseriding), Carsington Water (nature trails, cycling, canoeing, bird watching & windsurfing), Haddon Hall, Chatsworth, Alton Towers and The Heights of Abraham in Matlock Bath where you wil...
