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 property in ideal location”
Reviewed September 4, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Fantastic property in ideal location for the Peak District National Park. Heart in mouth road to get to Chapel House just adds to the charm. First visit to the Peak District and all parts are easy to get to from the property with Bakewell (the town and pudding) a favourite. If you do not want to venture too far afield there is a lovely hillside walk just opposite the property, complete with sheep and cows that provide the morning alarm call!

“Great location and beautiful countryside views”
Reviewed July 14, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had a lovely stay at chapel house despite the rainy weather. The house was in a good location for exploring the Peak District and had beautiful countryside views from all windows. The owner was very helpful and provided suggestions of things to do with a baby. We particularly enjoyed
curbar edge, dovedale, tissington village and we also visited chatsworth house which was great to walk around with a pram. We would definitely recommend the property to others!

“The Perfect Accommodation ”
Reviewed May 30, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Brilliant. Everything to a very high standard. Comfortable beds and more than ample space to sleep 5, 6 if you want to share a large single or sofa! Wood burner made for a great evening of cheese and red wine!

The owner of the cottage David was brilliant. Lots of info and made the whole booking process clear and trouble free. Very prompt on emails!!

No down sides at all really. Both pubs are good in the village. Both of them offering something completely different. The steak at The Gate is brilliant and so are the new owners!

All in all, A+++++

“A lovely place to stay”
Reviewed May 13, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

All of the basics are covered in this charming Chapel House. The place is very well organised and all necessary equipment and information have been carefully provided and admin is both friendly and highly efficient. The surrounding countryside, both the fields opposite the house and the areas a short distance away, represent England at it's most beautiful.
The village has two good pubs which both sell pretty reasonable food but differ from each other in character. Sadly there is no village shop however a vending machine provides what some would see as the basics. It's fine as long as one isn't too fussed about wholesomeness because, from my liberal-bourgeoise-Guardian-reading viewpoint, there is very little that I would ever consider eating from the selection on offer. Fortunately there are some good food shops not too far away. The kitchen at the house is fine and sitting eating around the dining table with all that light and space is a recommended experience.
The Chapel House is not lavish but it is very comfortable and has a great lived in feel. There are books and paintings and objects around which make the place a homely. As I stay in hotels quite a bit this made a big difference to me and was an unexpected bonus.
I would highly recommend this rental.

“Oh the serenity!”
Reviewed May 12, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The Chapel House in Brassington is one of the best places to pass a weekend or week in The Peak District bar none. This is a truly authentic rural experience - no nearby conurbations, or encroaching suburbs - just fields, villages and some of the best pubs in the country. The Gate public house in Brassington is the real deal - a 17th century hostelry that was built in the year of Shakespeare's death and once served as hospital for a nearby skirmish during the English Civil War. The food there is excellent as is the beer. The Peak Trail is nearby and is a great place to start a cycle ride through the area. It follows the path of a disused railway line and is therefore perfectly flat - a cheat's way of seeing miles of this hilly district without having to negotiate one hill! Highly recommended.

“Great cottage, very clean, shame about the parking.”
Reviewed April 10, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We loved staying at Chapel House, the owner David gave us very precise instructions which helped a lot when it came to parking our two cars. My husband & I along with our two children shared the cottage with my sister and her partner. There was plenty of room for us all. However my sister and her partner had to park down the hill in the next street outside the church which wasn't ideal. Everything else was fab. The Miners Arms got a big thumbs up from us, food amazing and a very warm welcome. Ye Olde Gate Inn also good, nice enclosed beer garden, we were made to feel very welcome. Outstanding views on your door step. Matlock only a 15 minute drive away to Heights of Abraham.

Management Response

The parking space will be enlarged in the next few weeks. The idea is not really to park two cars, rather make parking easier for any sized car. However it may be possible to park two small cars side-by-side, but one would be blocked in by the other. Extra and safe parking is just 100 metres away and, if you read through my five years of feedback, this is the first time this issue has received a mention. However I mean no disrespect at all to this reviewer who clearly felt it should be pointed out, and who I thank for taking the trouble to write a review.
