The property

Middleton-in-Teesdale 2.5 miles.

Settled amidst the gorgeous scenery of the North Pennines AONB is this Grade II listed former church, Newbiggin Chapel.

Presenting a reverse-level layout to take advantage of the wonderful views from the first floor, Newbiggin Chapel boasts contemporary style within a traditional setting, creating a unique and interesting contrast.

Bring your group of six to this unusual holiday cottage, entering onto the ground floor to find three elegant bedrooms to choose from and unpack your things in, with two doubles and a twin.

Each room is adorned with quality furnishings and features an en-suite, with the master double boasting a wonderful bathroom, home to a bath and walk-in shower, before leading to the ground-floor utility, while the other two feature sleek shower rooms.

Travel upstairs to the first floor to find original window arches and exposed beams, along with preserved features such as the original altar rail from the chapel and a potbelly stove, and of course beautiful views, creating a delightful setting to relax in after busy days of exploring.

Whether streaming your favourite film or show on the Smart TV whilst sinking into the fabulous sofa, gathering around the kitchen island for a toast to your holiday while the chef of the group makes a start on dinner, or taking your place around the sophisticated dining table for quality time tucking into a tasty meal, you are sure to be impressed with the style and layout of this beautiful converted chapel.

The village of Newbiggin is just a stone's throw from the incredible High Force, one of England's most impressive waterfalls, so you can embark on this adventure right from your doorstep, simply pull on your walking boots and follow the River Tees up river to take in the glorious scene of this 21m cascade into the plunge pool below.

Visit the Bowless Visitor Centre to find a wealth of information about things to see and do across the North Pennines, with Summerhill Force and Gibson's Cave being just around the corner from the centre, offering another amazing sight!

Venture out on plenty of walks to make the most of the fantastic location, with the Pennine Way being a great walking route to follow, as well as the Teesdale Railway Path, whilst the surrounding peaks and fells of Fendrith Hill, Mickle Fell, Hilton Fell and Burnhope Seat to name a few all make wonderful outings with amazing views at the top!

Grassholme Reservoir is an excellent fishing spot and is one of the top 'any method' fisheries in the country, settled amidst beautiful countryside, you can spend several peaceful afternoons here.

Book an exciting day at The Kingsway Adventure Centre to experience something new with everything from gorge walking and waterfall swings, to canoeing and kayaking, as well as a low ropes course and archery, there's something for everyone to enjoy!

For those seeking a unique and stylish holiday home in Teesdale, choose Newbiggin Chapel for a holiday to remember.
