Woodmanwray Chapel is a newly converted former chapel. Originally built in 1839, it now provides stylish and comfortable accommodation for up to 6 people in a peaceful location in beautiful Nidderdale. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and downstairs there is a large open plan living area with a double sofa bed, dining area and comfortable seating. The kitchen and utility rooms are separate and well equipped. A travel cot and high chair are available on request. The Chapel has been thoughtfully furnished to create a home from home whatever the time of year. It is well insulated with underfloor heating and a log burning stove, for cosy evenings whatever the weather. There is plenty of enclosed outdoor space for ball games and picnics and room to park several cars. Secure storage for bikes is available in a locked bike shed. Nidderdale is a quiet and attractive base for walking and cycling holidays, yet it is only a short car ride from Harrogate with its many amenities. Excellent food shops and restaurants are within easy reach in Pateley Bridge and there are several local pubs within a 10 minute drive.
2 bed cottage (sleeps 6) in peaceful location. An ideal base for walking and cycling. 3 miles from Pateley Bridge.

About Alison Simpson
My name is Alison Simpson and I live with my family on a neighbouring farm. If you come to Woodmanwray Chapel you will probably meet some of our farm animals! You may well see our sheepdogs being trained and we will certainly bring you some of our eggs. We are really proud of the Chapel and hope that all of our visitors will love it as much as we do. We think you will find that Nidderdale is a great place to visit.
Alison Simpson purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Alison Simpson chose Harrogate
Its a great location as its really quiet and peaceful, yet there is lots to do just a short drive away. Harrogate with its restaurants and shops is only a 20 minute drive away and from there you can take a train to the amazing city of York. Nidderdale offers charming scenery, lots of 'foodie' shops and friendly people. There are ideas for walks and cycle rides in the cottage and for kids of all ages there are gorges to walk, rocks to climb and rivers to paddle in.
What makes this Cottage unique
Although the Chapel is completely modernised it still retains a lot of its original charm in the stained glass windows and stone sun porch.

Well equipped and very clean accommodation. Nice quiet rural location
We enjoyed 3 night stay at this well equipped accommodation. The location was fantastic. A real get away from it all. The access to footpaths literally on the doorstep made our walking weekend very easy.
The layout of the conversion is very well thought out while keeping to the original purpose of the building with subtle nods to its chapel history.
Alison the owner was very attentive to our needs and we felt very welcome.
A fantastic place to stay

Beautiful surroundings and relaxing property
The accomodation is in a beautiful setting - perfect for walking, running or challenging road cycling. Lots to do and see in the area - beautiful and stunning natural scenery, charming villages and all the amenities of Harrogate only 20 minutes away. The property had everything you would need, including family games and DVDs for a relaxing evening after a day of strenuous outdoor activities.
