This beautiful stone chapel with an original dove tower, once owned by John Myers, cousin of William Wordsworth, has been restored keeping its character with original oak beams, exposed stone walls and locally mined slate. The Chapel is quiet and romantic and enjoys beautiful views of the Whicham Valley, Black Combe Fell, and the Coniston fells at the top of the valley. The Chapel is arranged with the living area on the upper floor to maximise the fell and valley views, and there is a woodburner for those cosy evenings. It also boasts a large bathroom with a freestanding bath and large wet room style shower. A paradise for lovers of wildlife and birds, the cottage is located amongst 5 acres of garden and woodland, and surrounded by fields in a separate area of a working farm in the Lake District National Park. There are wonderful walks from the cottage and just 1 mile away is the Irish sea and a beautiful dog friendly beach at Silecroft. The Whicham Valley is remote, unspoilt and an idyllic corner of the Lake District, ideal for walkers, mountain bikers, climbers, nature lovers and those enjoying the peace and beauty of the countryside. The Duddon Valley, Southern Lakes and fells are easily reached with Coniston Water, Ennerdale Water, Wastwater, and Lake Windermere all within half an hour’s drive. Visit Muncaster Castle, La’al Ratty Miniature Steam Railway or the South Lakes Wild Animal Park. Horse riding is available nearby including Cumbria Heavy Horses and beach rides at Silecroft. Massage and beauty treatments can be arranged nearby or at the cottage. The Chapel (26506) can be booked together with Fell View Cottage (W44181) to accommodate up to 7 guests. Beach 1¾ miles. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
