The Old Chapel, Thwaite

Under Offer
Guide Price £385,000

The Old Chapel is beautifully situated in the heart of Swaledale and on the fringe of the small rural village of Thwaite. The village is located on “The Pennine Way” and “The James Herriot Way” with the Coast to Coast route nearby. There is an excellent selection of local amenities, ensuring a thriving village community.

It is within reasonable commuting distance of several local market towns including Hawes, Kirkby Stephen, Richmond and Leyburn.

The Old Chapel comprises a Grade II Listed former Chapel built in 1863. It has been converted to provide two separate properties. The refurbishment has been finished to a high standard. The Old Chapel is presently run as two holiday cottages and has a Visit Britain 4 Star Gold Award. The Chapel is split into East Chapel and West Chapel with the accommodation over three floors on the East wing and four floors on the West wing. The property benefits from picturesque views over Thwaite.

The Old Chapel has been run as an established holiday let over many years with a gross income of £34,000 pa. It has had an 80-85% occupancy rate and offers considerable potential to continue and develop further this commercial use. It also offers the flexibility to run it wholly or partly as a B&B, private dwelling or other live/work mixed use.

The property is accessed via a gated gravel driveway. Both the East wing and the West wing have the benefit of two separate patio areas. The East wing patio area overlooks the village of Thwaite with Kisdon Hill in the background. The West wing patio area overlooks the beck and waterfall.
