Beautiful from the outset, this magnificent former Methodist Chapel sleeps ten and is a fantastic choice for celebrating special occasions and milestone birthdays with your nearest and dearest. It has breathtaking original features and a yellow and red brick Romanesque-style exterior. Upon entering, you’ll be welcomed into a vestibule that has a cloakroom for storing all your coats and shoes after a lovely day navigating the surrounding Yorkshire Wolds.
Inside is impressive and contemporary with a decor that celebrates the property’s classic architecture through vaulted ceilings and a magical stained glass rose window that sends a cascade of rainbow hues across the open-plan living space. Elegant fixtures, electric reclining armchairs and squashy sofas create a hygge atmosphere in the lounge area that’s enhanced further by the crackling wood burner at its heart. Imagine curling up under a throw with hot cocoa and slabs of chocolate to listen to the gentle pitter-patter of raindrops outside, feeling deliciously snug inside your sanctuary.
Foodies will be awestruck by the sublime kitchen and choice of dining options, and even the most reluctant of cooks will feel at home chopping vegetables and rustling up something tasty with the range of equipment. There’s an electric hob, a double oven and grill and a slow cooker for cooking up a storm, whilst the American-style fridge-freezer and additional fridge have ample space for storing all the goodies you’ll be able to source locally. For caffeine enthusiasts, the Tassimo and Dolce Gusto coffee machine is a bonus treat. Perch at the breakfast bar for light breakfasts or light candles and gather everyone around the dining table for formal meals, enjoying chatter that lasts well into the night. There’s also a dishwasher, a washing machine and a tumble dryer for taking care of practical matters.
The stairs lead up to an entertainment area that’s sure to surprise and delight your entire party, inviting you to put on some toe-tapping tunes or set up the snacks for an extra special movie night. There is a large TV and Sky Q for your viewing pleasure, but the competitive souls amongst you will adore the air hockey/table tennis table. Nestled under the original timber joists with natural light pouring in through the balcony doors, this area is excellent for socialising or simply curling up on the deep sofas with a good book.
The bedrooms are decadent and inspiring with the comfiest of beds dressed in crisp linen and velvety-soft scatter cushions. There’s a TV in two of the bedrooms for catching up on your favourite shows whilst snuggled under a duvet, and each room has the luxury of a private en-suite for invigorating showers. Three of the bedrooms are upstairs on the first floor, and two more can be found back downstairs on the ground floor.
Throw open the courtyard doors and step outside for al fresco drinks in the sunshine and leisurely dips in your exclusive hot tub. Watch the sunset and wait for the stars to come out to play as you sink into the bubbles, brushing away your worries as you give in to complete relaxation. Wrapped in a robe, retreat to the balcony upstairs with your glass in hand. The views from here are a treat for constellation spotting, and in the morning it’s a delight to watch the world come to life as you take your very first sip of coffee.
In terms of practicality, there is off-road parking on each side of the property with room for three cars in total. You’ll also discover a handy utility room with an additional washing machine for all your laundry needs.
