The Old Methodist Chapel (1878) has in the past been a chapel, offices, and a home and has now been lovingly renovated to provide a comfortable and unusual place to enjoy a holiday.
Situated only a short drive from Bassenthwaite Lake, Skiddaw and Keswick in the Northern Lake District it is perfectly placed to access all that the beautiful Lake District has to offer.
The Old Chapel will sleep up to 6 people offering a double en-suite room, a single/double room with electric tilting bed and wet room, and a double and single bunk bed. The Old Chapel has large beautiful gardens and a patio seating area. The property has disabled access and offers extra disabled facilities such as rise and recline chair and widened doors. The Old Chapel has been thoughtfully developed to provide a safe home for people suffering with dementia/Alzheimer’s with such things as temperature controlled taps and a ceramic quick cool hob.

The local village boasts 50 pupils and the school canteen provides nutritional meals, cooked onsite with local produce, to Amy’s Day Care Service. The village has a busy WI Hall, where Amy’s Day Care is based, and throughout the year there are many theatre and musical events held in the Globe Hall; the villages 2nd community centre.
The village pub serves local ales, home-cooked meals and offers a takeaway service and a village farm offers milk, eggs and vegetables.
Ireby music festival is an annual event which attracts over 500 music fans to enjoy many folk acts over a weekend in May.
This was an amazing house and we had the most wonderful long weekend here. The house is in the middle of the village with a farm at the centre where you can buy eggs and milk - couldn't get more idealic! Was everything we expected and more.
