Chapel Bank is a very unique cottage. Once a Methodist Chapel, built in 1859 by Cornish miners, it is now a cottage with a difference with the benefits of 21st century comforts in a historical building with many original features. The cottage is a great base for active families and groups, or just for relaxation, perfectly located for access to the fells, with local village amenities and pubs all a short walk away, and perfect to come home to after a satisfying day out!
What is the capacity for Chapel Bank House?
The property is ideal for up to six adults or families alike with spacious rooms. The house is laid out over three floors and is upside down in layout with its living areas located on the top floor (trust us the views are worth the climb). Chapel Bank House is a well-appointed property with quality furnishings and appliances.
What can guests enjoy when staying in the Coniston area?
Coniston is an excellent location for outdoor lovers, with some great year-round hiking, biking, water sports, fishing and cycling. There are several great trails to be found in the area for cycling enthusiasts and the delights of Grizedale Forest are just a short ride away. Every year Coniston provides 5k, 10k, marathon and half Marathon options for runners of all capabilities. For those who come to walk the area, no trip to Coniston would be complete without a climb up the Old Man of Coniston. However, for those of you who want more of a relaxing stay, the Ruskin Museum is located in Brantwood, a Victorian home of Philosophe John Ruskin, where frequent events and art classes are held.
