This interesting and character-filled property has three bedrooms: one ground floor double with en-suite shower room, one mezzanine level double and one ground floor single with additional pull out bed.

This is a delightful, detached, stone built converted chapel situated in the sleepy hamlet of Rudland, just two miles from Fadmoor. The sympathetic conversion has led to an enchanting mixture of period-pieces and modern living space. With a ground floor double bedroom with en-suite, a quirky mezzanine-level bedroom set above the spacious living room and a wood-burning stove, this is an incredibly cosy property with lots of character. The country-style kitchen boasts a stable-door, opening onto the sunny mature gardens with a pretty beck trickling down the centre. The garden is a wonderful place to relax with a good book, or a glass of something cold, and simply enjoy the sound of the stream. Nearby are a variety of local amenities, all within easy reach of the property.


We stayed for the May Bank Holiday week, and wished we could have stayed longer. The Old Chapel looks deceptively small from the outside, but it opens up like Dr Who's tardis with a lovely spacious, high-ceilinged lounge with a mezzanine loft (which our son immediately laid claim to) and a big well-equipped kitchen with a lovely view onto the garden. Two other bedrooms were fine (one en suite), and there is a good-sized family bathroom. Everything was very clean (our one anxiety from some early reviews) and well maintained. The location is lovely, right up on the edge of the moors, no near neighbours or noise apart from the birdsong - curlew, cuckoo, snipe, woodcock, red grouse amongst others. It is a perfect base for walkers and there is so much to do in the area (eg Rievaulx Abbey), or for a day on the coast (eg Whitby or the Puffins at RSPB Bempton). A car is a must - several really nice pubs within 15 minutes drive, Helmsley is great for shops and Scott's Fish and Chips. Beadlam Grange farm shop has a lovely deli and does great breakfasts. The Old Chapel is a real home from home. We will be back.

A fabulous place - Very cosy. We had an amazing time and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for peace and tranquillity, we will definitely be going back!

The cottage was in a lovely location and well maintained, the kids loved the little wooded area and the treasure chest of toys to play with. The cottage was well stocked with everything you could think of! A super little gem of a place.

Absolutely lovely property is idyllic surroundings. Beautiful garden where you can see the odd rabbit and listed to the cuckoo. The cottage is well appointed and was spotlessly clean. The beds were extremely comfortable with quality bed linen. We really loved our stay here and were sorry to leave. It is a great base for travelling into local villages of Pickering or Helmsley, not to mention places further afield such as York or Whitby. The cottage has a charm to it and there are very nice neighbours not too far away who are on hand should you need anything. All in All we had a brilliant stay.

The cottage was well equipped with everything and everything. It is in a lovely tranquil area, it was peaceful and relaxing. The beds were extremely comfortable and the sheets were high quality cotton. We loved the garden which was perfect for sitting out in and enjoying the early evening birdsong, including a cuckoo. There are many small villages to visit in the surrounding area and it is a beautiful part of the country.
