The rear garden overlooks open fields, often with the cows, sheep & deer watching you, & has a patio area with table, chairs, & Webber barbecue. Play boules on the lawn & then watch the sun set over the woods with a glass of something cool! You might even be lucky enough to see the badgers at dusk. Do some star gazing with the telescope you'll find in the "mini summerhouse". On a clear night the night sky looks like a glass dome, with no light pollution. Magical! There is also a small sitting area to the side of the chapel which is an afternoon suntrap, & a seating area beside the burn for a relaxing read, with the calming sound of trickling water.

Northern England region
Northumberland is steeped in history, with a "castle every mile", Hadrian's Wall, historic Hexham & Corbridge, Alnwick gardens & castle, Beamish museum, & Durham on your doorstep, you will never be short of things to do during your stay. Northumberland is known as "Land of the big skies" due to the dramatic, ever changing scenery & wide open, sparsely populated countryside. A great place to get away from it all.
Juniper is a tranquil village, close to historic Hexham & Corbridge, with their shops, cafes & restaurants, theatre & cinema. With 2 great local pubs within a couple of miles its a great central spot from which to explore Northumberland.
Hexham is a bustling market town with an award winning Farmers' Market, Old Gaol, ancient Abbey dating back to the 11th century, yet with modern facilities - a leisure centre, cinema, theatre, shops, restaurants, cafes, park with children's playground, & Hexham is also on the main train line into Newcastle with a 1/2 hourly service.
Corbridge, with it's winding lanes of shops & Cafes & riverside walks along the Tyne offers a lovely day out. The Roman Wall museum is well worth a visit. Hadrian's Wall is only a few miles away, with Housestead Fort showing how the Romans used to live, Vindolanda, with rare Roman finds, & of course the beautiful wall itself to walk along in spectacular scenery.

"Charming riverside property in pretty rural village"
We had a lovely stay in this old chapel it was very warm and cosy throughout out our late winter week, we even had some lovely bright sunny days which was an unexpected bonus, and a couple of bright starry nights.The owner Clare was very helpful and had taken the the time to bake us a delicious cake on arrival.Plenty of things to do whether that be exploring the history of Hadrain's wall or shopping in the local towns, or taking a stroll along the numerous local footpaths. Our little girl loved being near the river even though we had to share it with the local geese and ducks.This is an unusual property with a practical solution for providing full kitchen facilties, and has incorporated a lot of the original features from the chapel with tasteful decor and and furniture all of whch makes it a delightful holiday home.

"Idyllic location and a hidden gem"
We loved this cottage, it was spacious a very luxurious bedrooms, with sufficient bathrooms to keep everyone happy. The location is stunning and peaceful with busy Hexham only a few miles away. There were a couple of easy to reach pubs and the dogs had a blast. Lots of local walks and a great welcome from clare and the chickens ...
Lovely chocolate cake on arrival and a sweet little private garden.

"Couldn't wish for a more idyllic spot"
This beautifully unique property is in the most idyllic spot you could possibly imagine. Right next to a river, which runs alongside a beautiful wooded area, perfect for dog walking, which was much enjoyed by Charlie (a Collie cross), and Una (a lurcher). In the little hamlet of Juniper, this property is far enough out of Hexham to be nicely secluded, but not too far if you need some shopping.
The decor and furnishings inside the chapel are wonderful. The only negative point I could possibly think of was the lack of a potato masher in the kitchen, but not exactly a holiday spoiler!
After popping out one morning, we returned only to be welcomed by a delicious homemade sponge cake with fresh strawberries in a tin on the doorstep. Even though the chapel is right next door to the owners house, I think we only saw them once, so were not made to feel as if we were being scrutinised. But it was nice to know they were there, had we needed any assistance or information.
We all agreed that we would love to return to the chapel in the summertime, as we were rather unfortunate with the weather. Even so, we managed a trip to Hadrian's Wall, and popped over to Penrith (only about an hour away) to visit a friend. A wonderful long weekend was enjoyed by all our party, and even though it's a long old drive up from Kent, it's certainly somewhere we'd be delighted to revisit. Definitely recommend to anyone.
