Where the rainbow ends.
The open-plan living space downstairs compliments a holiday atmosphere.
It's snowing.
Flaming June
The view from the front door.
A double staircase circumventing a king post truss or vertical beam
The meadow opposite.
Walk from the door into open country or visit our two lovely pubs just two minutes down the hill.
Snowy frolics in the village.
The Kitchen Window
The dining area.
A spacious, light and airy bathroom
The newly extended car park.
The well-equipped kitchen, part of the open-plan downstairs. Cook, socialise and enjoy the view.
The Gate, voted 'Most Unspoilt Pub in England 2017' by The Good Pub Guide. Good food too.
A few hundred feet from Chapel House.
Cosy bedrooms with fabulous views across the valley.
Period features; the original Victorian shutters and bolts.
The White Peak at sunset
The small bedroom.
Up, up, up and away in my beautiful balloon - fly from Tissington or Chatsworth.
Through the arched window.
High up on the edge of the village but feels like open country.
A 12kw woodburner and electric heating will keep you warm in winter.
Friendly locals.
Near Rainster Rocks (10 mins walk). Panoramic views towards Parwich. This was once a tropical sea.
Everywhere that I roam...... Show me the way to go home.
A green and pleasant land.
Harboro rocks on the village outskirts. A Mecca for climbing beginners.
Not far from Pemberley?
View from the bathroom. Brush your teeth and watch buzzards at the same time.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed January 2, 2015 for a stay in November 2014

Chapel house was a wonderful break from the city. The house itself is beautiful inside with its wooden beams and original interior. The surrounding village is very quaint and everyone is extremely friendly. David was so helpful in organising wood for the fire before we arrived and the house was in an immaculate condition. There are lots of helpful brochures and books on what activities there are to do in the surrounding area. Overall, we had a great stay and will be revisiting! Highly reccommended.

“Beautiful cottage in beautiful Brassington!”

This is a lovely, cosy cottage in one of the prettiest villages in the Peak District. It's a very atmospheric historic building in a proper Peak village with all sorts of home comforts and touches: interesting antiques, a well-stocked cook's kitchen, lovely fresh cotton bed linen, comfy sofas, a big telly, for vegging out in front of, and the piece de resistance: the excellent log burner.
We came on a cold winter's weekend and it was wonderful to go out for a good hike and a dose of fresh air and then return to a roaring log fire. The hills are right outside the front door, there are two excellent pubs a stone's throw away (The Gate has not one but three open fires) and any number of great walks you can do right from the door.
It really has it all. I don't hesitate to recommend Chapel House to anyone looking for a tastefully decorated, cosy cottage in the middle of great walking country - enjoy!

“Happy times at Chapel House!”
Reviewed December 1, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Beautiful, dreamy house and lovely picturesque location! We had a great weekend here full of cooking, log fires, walks and a few in the local pub, perfect! Value for money and good facilities. We have already talked about a trip here again next year.

I.my wife and our kids have stayed at Chapel House for 9 nights and we had a fantastic time. The owner is very helpful and easy to deal with. The Chapel House is very good equipped with everything you need for your stay. We love Brassington where Chapel House is located. Just amazing. We woke up and while we made breakfast and we saw cows close to our window munching on fresh grass and when we looked from the other window we saw sheep's. Our kids loved it.They just could not stop steering at them. It's an amazing location. The neighbours are very friendly plus you can find two near by pubs with a pretty good beers and food you might enjoy as we did.We also loved We also loved The Knockerdown pub which is pretty close to Brassington and you can not miss this pub in the evening because its covered with hundreds of lights and beautifully decorated inside.
You could not finish the evening with a glass of wine or a beer and chill by a lovely fireplace.
We could write an essay about this cottage and the location. We highly recommend this cottage to everyone who wants to stay in a beautiful romantic and peaceful place.We loved it and We will be back.

We really liked this place. It was a brief stay and we had quite a lot to attend to during the day but it was always lovely to return to this home from home. It was just a pleasure to be there from the moment we arrived. We never went out in the evening but cooked at "home" instead. The place is well equipped and, anyway, we didn't want to leave it! Lovely village, too.

This wonderful house is absolutely perfect for all those who are looking for a place to relax and to pass either some quite days at home, enjoying the peaceful view over the small and picturesque village of Brassington, or to go out for some hikes in the region.
Overall the cottage is excellently equipped and all technical devices work flawlessly. There is a tasteful collection of CDs (a great mixture from Bob Dylan to Radiohead) as well as DVDs for rainy days. We really took advantage of all the travel guides, prospects and other useful stuff that are provided by the owner. Thanks to the heating, it constantly was comfortably warm and we could enjoy our evenings reading which was easily possible because of the powerful LED-lightning. The beds were all in a good condition, so was the bath room. Apart from that, free WiFi was available.
All in all, we were pleasantly surprised by the entire cottage where we spent a wonderful and easygoing week.

The owner was very responsive to questions and delivered all necessary information promptly before arrival at the property. We were even informed on the latest retail innovation in the village (a milk/bread/eggs vending machine).
The property was charming and all facilities worked accordingly. We liked that very much. Location is wonderful. Very nicely located for walks and bicycle tours (once you are over the first hill). Two pubs nearby, both with their own charm. Good food, friendly people.
Mobile phone reception is not very good...but that's a problem of the village, not of the owner. Wifi is available, but at a cost. A small point of improvement might be that that is made clear on the airbnb site.
All in all, we had a very nice holiday.

Management Response

Just to clarify: WiFi is free for things like checking emails and browsing. I have a limited allowance so I would only consider charging if this is exceeded e.g. with heavy-use applications like gaming and streaming. However, in the last year since I got WiFi, I can see guests are more likely to use the allowance, especially during the winter, so I am considering upgrading my WiFi package to an 'unlimited' usage.
