Description

Built in 1830, this historic property is situated in the heart of the attractive market town of Hexham. Originally designed as Hexham’s first ‘Ranters Chapel’; it was named after The Ranters renowned for their impassioned preaching. The chapel occupied both this property and the adjoining one and still retains the original dual entrance through which men and women worshippers could enter separately.

Today, Ranters Chapel has been beautifully transformed to create luxurious self-catering holiday accommodation. Immaculately presented throughout, the layout of the accommodation is quirky and boasts oodles of charm. Spread over three levels the main entrance opens onto a sleek, contemporary dining kitchen, which is particularly well-equipped. One of the double bedrooms, with convenient en-suite shower facilities is also on this floor. A spiral staircase leads down the lower ground where there is the main living area with additional shower room and laundry. Bi-fold doors lead from the lounge to a fully enclosed patio garden. With another two bedrooms (one double and one twin) on the first floor and an additional bathroom, this well-appointed property is a suitable choice for the gathering of families and friends alike or for those couples seeking something rather special....
