    “The Old Chapel is ...”
    The Old Chapel is lovely.Clean,comfortable and very well equipped.We have holidayed on the moors many times in the last 50 yrs.,and was delighted with the property,and its location in a part of the moors which we have somehow overlooked over the years,usually journeying on up through Pickering to Whitby area.Overall,a nice break,despite the typical moors weather,fog and drizzle,but it doesn't detract from the beauty of the moors,and it doesn't rain in the "Lion" on Blakey Ridge!! Thank You..

The property

Fadmoor 2 miles.

A delightful, detached, stone-built converted chapel, in a tranquil setting in the small hamlet of Rudland, 2 miles from Fadmoor.

Retaining its original character, The Old Chapel includes a cosy woodburner, and a quirky mezzanine level bedroom above the spacious living room, which boasts a pitched cathedral-style roof with exposed beams.

The stable door of the country-style kitchen opens onto large, sunny mature gardens with a pretty beck trickling down the centre, a perfect spot to unwind.

Nearby Gillamoor has an excellent country inn serving food, whilst the market town of Kirkbymoorside has numerous pubs and restaurants.

Its position on the edge of the moors makes it especially appealing to walkers and cyclists with many trails, including Rudland Rigg which is very close by.

The area offers many attractions with local museums, castles, ruined abbeys, the North Yorkshire Moors Stream Railway, the coastal resorts of Whitby and Scarborough and the historic city of York among many.

About the location


Kirkbymoorside 2.5 miles; Pickering 10 miles; Helmsley 9 miles.

The pretty village of Fadmoor, dotted with old stone cottages, nestles amidst the beautiful countryside of the North York Moors National Park, 2.5 miles from the attractive market town of Kirkbymoorside. Kirkbymoorside is a charming place with a slightly 'old fashioned feel', and visitors will find plenty to keep them occupied in the many tea rooms, pubs and restaurants there. There is even an 18 hole course for golf enthusiasts. The excellent walking and magnificent scenery of the National Park are on the doorstep, and there are many picturesque villages, such as Hutton-le-Hole, close by. Pickering, the base of the North York Moors Steam Railway, is a must for all visitors, or why not enjoy the area’s museums, castles, trout fishing and local market towns. In addition, both the city of York and the resorts of the East Coast are within easy driving distance.
