Created with romance in mind, this beautiful former chapel is a hideaway for two that will capture your heart while you relax overlooking the fields and moors beyond.

Set in scenic Danby Dale a Victorian Methodist Chapel built in 1853, has now been exquisitely refurbished. The beautiful Danby Dale can be explored on foot across the many footpath trails, through Botton Village and to Danby village. On your nearby strolls, stop off at the local creamery or organic health food shop to pick up something delicious for your dinner. More demanding walks further afield throughout the North York Moors and on the coast-to-coast route's. Head towards the coast for a day at the beach at Whitby, just a short drive in the car. Take a tour to Goathland, famously known as the film location for 'Heartbeat', the station here has featured as Hogsmead in the Harry Potter films.

Step inside the generous entrance hall. Hang your coat and slip on the complimentary slippers provided and head into the cosy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with stylish and vibrant furnishings. A wood burner sits nicely beside the sofa, perfect for those colder months, put a log on the fire and warm the entire room in no time. A kitchen sits to one side of the chapel and is equipped with an electric oven and hob and fridge, perfect to rustle up a hearty breakfast or romantic dinner, ready to dine at the dining table with your loved one. A few steps take you up to the mezzanine, sit back on the comfy chaise lounge, read a book or simply enjoy the views of the moors outside. When its time to turn in, make your way up the stairs to the beautifully presented double bedroom finished with low level windows so you can enjoy the view from your bed. Completing the accommodation is the ground floor shower room with shower and WC. You won't want to tear yourself out of the shower providing you with a refreshing start to your day.

Outside there is a built in bench where you can enjoy a glass of fizz, celebrating a toast to your getaway or just a few steps from the chapel is the beck, where you can sit and listen to the babbling brook and watch salmon and trout.

Very well designed conversion of a small Victorian building, everything has been thought out well and made comfortable and tasteful. The chapel is very isolated at the bottom of a valley, so no phone but the Wifi is excellent. A beautiful rural area, excellent for walks and peaceful relaxation.

The Chapel is very clean, cosy and comfortable with a real log fire which quickly warms up the living area and bedroom. A lovely little place to spend a few days exploring the Moors and nearby beaches and quaint villages.

A quiet little gem, just as described on the webside. Perfect for walks with the dog, talking to sheep, not meeting many people, just relax and have some contemplation-time. The bed is of good quality and there is everything you need inside the house. It was my first time in the Yorshire Moors and won't be the last.

This cottage is in an absolutely idyllic location, and with no internet whatsoever provides a perfect break, and a wonderful opportunity to spend evenings by the log burning stove, talking, listening to music and drinking wine! Cottage is like a little tardis - looks tiny on outside, but excellent design and plenty of space within. Lots of places tRead moreo visit within a short drive, and Danby has a lovely little railway station too, that provides an alternative way to travel around the area. Hide

We had an amazing digital detox week with our rather anxious cockapoo in a delightful location where we immediately felt at home and where our dog was relaxed due to the calm surroundings. The chapel is small and perfectly formed and a great base from which to travel and explore North Yorkshire. We happened upon the 160th Danby Show during our stayRead more and had various trips to the coast and surrounding villages. Oh and the parking spot is idyllic by a babbling brook. Hide
