    I'm not entirely sure where to start. We had an amazing stay from start to finish. If you're reading this and thinking of booking to stay here, do not hesitate! It will not disappoint. The Old Chapel is one of those places you wish you owned, my friends and I all agreed that we really could live there. The photos, and it's exterior are deceiving, the place is like the Tardis, it is huge inside by comparison to how it appears on the outside. ...
    I'm not entirely sure where to start. We had an amazing stay from start to finish. If you're reading this and thinking of booking to stay here, do not hesitate! It will not disappoint. The Old Chapel is one of those places you wish you owned, my friends and I all agreed that we really could live there. The photos, and it's exterior are deceiving, the place is like the Tardis, it is huge inside by comparison to how it appears on the outside. We stayed for 3 nights over New Year's Eve, we were lucky that it bucketed down with snow, making the cottage and the landscape picturesque, we were kept lovely and warm by the large log burner and huge antique radiators. The place was reminiscent of the cottage in the film, The Holiday (for those of you who have seen it). The location is perfect, if you'd like a secluded break but not completely out in the middle of nowhere. The village of Gillamoor is only 2 miles away which has a lovely little pub, and was a great little winter's walk. The layout of the cottage is beautiful, with an open plan loft converted bedroom overlooking the living room, the living room is spacious and comes complete with a TV, DVD player, a stereo and drinks fridge. There was even a Christmas tree put up when we arrived. The master bedroom has a huge new bed, queen size I believe, it was definitely different to the one we saw in the photographs. There is also a modern en suite bathroom. The kitchen is a good size and has almost all the necessary utensils. The garden is amazing and has a little brook running alongside the house. as well as having a good sized patio and a outdoor bench and table, which would be great for BBQ's in the warmer months. I really could go on rambling about the place. We will most certainly be looking at staying again in the spring time. I really can't recommend the place enough! Thank you for an amazing weekend.

About the location

FADMOOR

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.
