About the property

2 Bedroom converted Chapel sleeping 4, ideal base for walking and touring.

Tucked away in a very quiet part of the village of Buckden, The Old Chapel was a former Wesleyan Chapel built in 1891 and has been converted to a luxury holiday cottage.

The cottage sleeps 4 people and a travel cot for babies.

Pets welcome (charge).The cottage is an ideal place for a relaxing holiday in a very peaceful village within the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. It would suit couples or families that either want to walk and explore the local countryside and mountains or those who want to use it as a base to explore further afield such as Wensleydale, Swaledale, Skipton and beyond. The cottage is self-catering with a pub and village restaurant (summer only) within walking distance and 3 further pubs within a 2 mile radius. We pride ourselves on providing a cottage that you will think of as “home” for your holiday with everything you need for a well earned break.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

This holiday was so relaxing and perfect. The Old Chapel was quaint and very homey. It had a feeling that welcomed you as soon as you stepped through the door. The local pub wasn’t to our liking as it had fancy type meals, we were expecting pub meals of pie and chips or fish and chips, so we just had a drink or two. The local tea room you must visit. It was lovely and the food spectacular. We visited Middleham Castle, Mount Grace Priory and gardens and Bolton Castle. All three was lovely but Bolton Castle is by far the best castle I have seen in the 15 years I have spent in the UK. If given another chance, we would book again. The only thing I didn’t care about was the man that lives in the back half of the chapel was constantly back and forth the side of the house where there are two huge windows. It was rather annoying and felt like it was an invasion of privacy. But it didn’t deter from the holiday.

“You scored when you picked this one!”

That was the comment my husband made when we walked through the doors and had a look around at The Old Chapel. While it’s hardly on the beaten track, if you’re looking for walking trails at every turn or, like the two of us, for a quiet get away in a beautiful location with super accommodations, look no farther - The Old Chapel at Buckden has it all!

As octogenarians, long walks aren’t our gig, but we did enjoy the shaded path along the River Wharfe and found our way to several of the pubs for a lager and a cider, as well as tasty meals. In fact, the Lamb Hot Pot at the Racehorse Inn in Kettlewell was incredible! A trip to Hawes on Thursday evening to see the sheepdog demonstration was not only interesting, a first for us.

Meeting Ted and his wife, Margaret, was a special treat, and it was our good fortune to be in Buckden for the Garden Walk. The only way our stay could have been more enjoyable is had we known earlier that there’s a tea room in Buckden!

excellent, relaxing, warm and cosy

  • 4 of 5

the Old Chapel was a warm and cosy haven for our weekend of Walking in gails and white outs. Two trips up the Pike in wild winter conditions were rounded off perfectly by having a warm, cosy and well equiped place to retreat to for wine and recuperation ;-) we'd wholeheartedly recommend the Old Chapel to any looking to enjoy the beauty of the Dales.
