“From Home to Home”
Chapel House more than exceeded our expectations! We knew from the website that the property was pretty and had excellent views but what we didn't anticipate was to feel like we had arrived 'home'. The cottage has a wonderfully homely feel and is exceptionally clean - kitchen, crockery, cutlery and bathroom are important ones to mention! We arrived late on a Thursday evening having driven up from London after work for a long weekend. We got the woodburner going straight away and sat in front of the TV with a mug of tea to relax before going to bed. We woke to outstanding views from all the windows and what seemed like cows and sheep looking into the cottage. Our days in the beautiful village of Brassington comprised of long circular walks on two of our days and a short one on our final day. All ended with a drink in either one of the two very cosy pubs which were busy with the friendly locals. We had planned to eat out on at least one of our days there but my husband and I were always keen to get back home to Chapel House, get the woodburner going and cook and eat there before settling in front of the TV. Our final day arrived far too quickly and we were both sad to be leaving Chapel House and Brassington. We will definitely be going back to Chapel House and can certainly recommend it as a place to stay if wanting to getaway in the UK or if visiting Derbyshire.
“chapel house exceeds its description onthe website wonderful”
We were home the moment we stepped in the door. Spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, feels like home in a beautiful setting. Plenty of interesting places to visit excellent mountain biking, walking.We had a wonderful week and were sad to leave.We would love to go backnext year.Really good communication with David our first time booking online with no problems and swift return of deposit. Thanks.
“Excellent house,great location,hope to return.”
We loved staying in Chapel House.It really felt like somebody's home not a rental house.Full of character and originality.Spectacular views from the windows which surround the living space on all sides.We found everything we could need in the kitchen,right down to the tumble drier.I would certainly reccomend the house to anyone considering a stay in Brassington and hope to stay there again in the future.
“A perfect place to chill”
Well, what can I say except I had the best sleep in months. I know the village is quiet but Chapel House itself is a very peaceful and soothing place somehow. Not only does it have a nice atmosphere, with lovely objects in it, but it is very practical and easy to use, with everything in the right place. And what a treat to be able to literally walk straight out of the door and into the Peak District. Perhaps it was partly the time of year we visited (May) but the landscape around Brassington is gorgeous. And the pub, the Gate, is a wonderful old village pub - like stepping back in time. All in all, a memorable short stay. Thank you!
“Perfection in the Peaks”
Chapel House is exactly as it looks on the photos - a perfectly peaceful haven set at the bottom of lush rolling hills where the main 'traffic' is the four legged kind who lazily graze in the fields above. Apart from the beauty of the surrounding countryside, I loved the homely feel of Chapel House. It is comfortable and cosy and equipped with all the essentials. In many senses, it felt like 'home'. I loved the fact that when I ran out tinfoil, I could borrow and replace. There was salt, pepper and oil on the windowsill, all we needed to get a fire going, games for rainy weather, CDs, DVDs , books, blankets, and a file containing everything we needed to know about the house and nearby places of interest. It was the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful Peak District or simply to close the door and head off into the hills behind the house. We came away feeling 100% rested. Thank you David.
“Comfortable character property”
Lovely quirky, comfortable cottage. Great location for walking, many walks from the door. Nice to have short walk to both pubs in the village, we had a lovely meal in The Gate. Although the parking is tight you could easily park up & not move your car for the weekend. The owner David is very approachable and was very helpful when we had to change our dates at the last minute.
“our annual 'away-time' with women friends”
We have stayed here twice before, and really like the Chapel itself with has excellent provisions, very attractive decor [but not overfilled with 'stuff', which can be irritating when unpacking your own belongings], but also it's perfect location on the edge of a quiet village, with a great choice of different walks to go on. We would be more than happy to return here in the future.
“Really lovely house in a great location”
We have just returned from a lovely stay at Chapel House. We really liked the house itself. It was spacious and the views from the beautiful chapel windows were great. The house is comfy and well appointed, with everything you could need in the kitchen and living areas. After reading previous reviews I was expecting a tiny car parking space, but we didn't find that to be a problem at all! We have a 5 door Ford Focus which fitted easily into the space. We weren't sure where to stay in the area and were very happy with Brassington. The village itself is lovely and having two pubs on the doorstep was great. Ye Olde Gate was great and we had a couple of great meals there (catering for carnivores (my husband) and vegetarians (me) alike!) The open fires were lovely and everybody was really welcoming. We only drank in the Miners and, whilst it wasn't as cosy or smart as Ye Olde Gate, the staff were really welcoming. We were very lucky with beautiful sunny weather and there were some great walks from the door of the house. We particularly liked the walk to Parwich and back via Bradbourne. The Sycamore Inn at Parwich made a good half way point for a nice pub lunch. It's only a short drive to Dovedale where we did a nice walk up to Milldale and then round via the top of Bunster Hill where the views were amazing. The only tip I would give is to take a hot water bottle with you if you are going to stay in winter. When we arrived the storage heaters had been off for days which made for a fairly chilly first night!!
Owner's reply: Sincere apologies about your chilly first night. This was due to a mix-up in communication with the new cleaner. Normally the heating is put on in advance of guests' arrival.
“Chapel House is delightful and quirky set in a beautiful village with lovely views.”
I struggled to decide between excellent and very good. It really was excellent and met all our needs. We were extended family members aged 50, 64 and 86. Us younger girls gave up the bedroom with easy bathroom access to our older companion and we did get used to crawling under the beam if we needed the loo in the night, wouldn't have fancied doing it for another week, but I imagine most go away for a week so you can get away with it. Otherwise, we made ourselves at home immediately and this is what Chapel House encourages in it's lay out and decor - it is just so homely and welcoming. It has a lived in feel to it which we liked very much. You can go for lovely walks from the accommodation as long as you like undulation. Characters in the local area added to the experience. Brassington is a lovely village, it's worth reading up on the village and the local area, making it all a bit more interesting.
Owner's reply: The top landing is split by a large beam, a king post truss. There are two short staircases either side of this beam leading to a bedroom and bathroom on one side, and two bedrooms on the other. Children (and sprightly adults such as this reviewer) may choose to go under the beam to access the bathroom from two of the bedrooms, rather than take the short staircase down and back up again on the other side.
“Welcoming, characterful home from home”
Beautiful building inside and out, in a great location - over the tiny road you are walking in open countryside. Good facilities inside, the porch was great for wet coats and boots. There was plenty of space, we liked the open plan of the ground floor - others may prefer more separate rooms. We appreciated the washing machine, tumble dryer and drying rack provided! The village of Brassington is lovely, we recommend The Olde Gate Inn heartily for wonderful food in unpretentious surroundings at a reasonable price for excellent quality. Fly in the ointment - the parking space is tiny. We put a Volvo V40 in it with difficulty, didn't ever have to move the car to allow wide load to pass, but it stuck into the road by a good 6 inches. The property is across several levels, so not ideal for those with small children, or who find steps difficult. (No problem to us)
Owner's reply: I will look into making the car parking space bigger. Meanwhile I'd like to point out there is plenty of secure parking available nearby the church, if guests don't like the provided space. The lane is for access only and there's never been a problem about cars sticking out a few inches.
