About our home

We live in a beautifully situated converted chapel in the Peak District national park. The Chapel is light, spacious and full of character with extensive views over the village and green rolling hills of the Peak District national park. The original wall pews and pulpit form part of the furnishings and the large gothic windows face south and west creating a sunny and dramatic space. The main lounge feels warm and cosy under the mezanine and features a cast iron stove.

There is a self contained apartment called Chapel Croft which can be included in an exchange. Chapel Croft was originally a croft and stable for the preachers horse. It consists of a bedroom, bathroom, lounge and kitchen area.

Outside there is a garden terrace, which has further beautiful views across the village and up the valley. The Chapel is surrounded on the other sides by open fields for grazing sheep and a village green with play facilities for children.

Beeley is an historic village that forms part of the Chatsworth estate. It is small and picturesque with traditional cottages, brook, ancient manor house and an old country church. The River Derwent is just a stone's throw away and Chatsworth House and formal gardens a delightful 40 minute stroll along the river. There is a village pub plus a cafe / shop situated just down the hill from The Chapel. The pub (The Devonshire Arms) is an atmospheric old coaching inn renowned for it's traditional beers and fine dining. Both the village cafe and the pub have big log fires in the winter and pretty gardens for the summer.

There is an adjoining Sunday School annexe on the north side of The Chapel which is currently rented out.
