Chapel Bank House, Coniston, Cumbria, LA21 8HJ
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.
Heading south out of Coniston, you turn right up a steep bend and the Chapel sits on your right. Drive round the back, there's a double integral garage with room for two cars with internal access to the house allowing you to easily load and unload the car without worrying about the weather! 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. 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!
The lane to the cottage is steep, twisty & narrow! Please drive carefully.
Please note the stairs in the cottage are wooden and un-carpeted. We kindly advise that guests supervise small children & pets on the stairs.
'Your comfort and well-being are our priority from the luxurious wool duvets with 100% cotton covers to the leather recliner sofas. Our aim is that you have a holiday with everything that you need for energetic pursuits or relaxation and refreshment.' The owners.
