Cottage in Runswick Bay, Nr. Whitby, North Yorkshire Moors, Yorkshire, England - Nestled In The Heart Of This Quaint Seaside Village And 75 Metres From The Blue Flag Sandy Beach
About Phil McNeelance
We purchased High Chapel in 2003 as a closed Methodist chapel and set about carefully and tastefully converting the chapel to a practical family holiday home for ourselves and our two daughters. We regularly use High Chapel ourselves and have been renting the cottage for about 4 years now. We never tire of visiting High Chapel and use it as a tranquil resting place from our hectic lives in the Midlands. Having said that, we love to sail and swim in the bay and regularly run the coastal path to either staithes or Sandsend as part of our regular fitness training for athletics and triathlon events!

Why Phil McNeelance chose Runswick Bay
We love the uniqueness of Runswick Bay with its traffic free environment surrounded by quaint cottages. The views across the Bay from the chapel are totally relaxing and the morning walk along the beach is just so refreshing. There are fantastic walks from the chapel or a short car journey to Whitby provides ample retail therapy when required! Runswick Bay is a quiet and peaceful location most of the year and the chapel compliments this with it own unique atmosphere.
What makes this Cottage unique
High Chapel is spacious and characterful for entertaining friends or family and the availability of free WiFi ensures contact with the outside world if and when required. The fixtures and fittings are all of a high standard and the log burning stove and underfloor heating provides ample heating and atmosphere for warm and cosy evenings in.

A wonderful few days in an amazing building in an outstanding location.
Took a few days out for some rest and relaxation. Couldn’t have expected more.
A superb property in an idyllic village on the coast of North Yorkshire.
Timed perfectly with the weather, I couldn’t recommend it any higher.
Stunning place to stay
This place has the big Wow factor ! It's very well equipped and very cosy. Close to the beach and pub . We had had a great family break at the Chapel and would love to come back again
Calm and relaxing
We have had a lovely week staying at High Chapel... a unique (in my opinion) Chapel conversion... we particularly enjoyed the log burner giving a very cosy feeling, bedrooms were warm and spacious and more important very comfy beds... Runswick Bay is very picturesque and beautiful, I particularly enjoyed the cliff walks which were easy to follow. Phil, the owner, was very helpful prior to our stay and quick to respond with any queries, I would definitely recommend High Chapel for a relax and rewind
