This stone-built, one double bedroom, cosy cottage was previously the vestry to the old Primitive Methodist chapel for Whitehall. The cottage has undergone some restoration whilst maintaining many of its original quirky features. The walls have been stripped back, tanked and insulated then finished in pine cladding. The Vestry stands above the village of Nenthead and enjoys delightful panoramic views.

The accommodation benefits from electric heating and double glazing, with a large stove providing additional warmth downstairs, and the accommodation comprises: Entrance Porch, Open Plan Living Room/Kitchen to the ground floor, Double Bedroom, Bathroom/WC, Stone Outhouse to the side of the property and Small Cottage Garden to the Front.

The property would be an ideal holiday cottage, first home or somewhere to downsize to. It does require some work to finish off the improvements that have already been done, but the materials that have been bought to do this will remain in the property.

Chapel Houses is a row of three cottages just above Nenthead on the road to Wellhope and Whitehall, with fantastic views across the valley. Nenthead is a former mining village and reputed to be the highest village in England. It is within easy reach of Alston (5 miles), Allendale (11 miles) and Hexham (20 miles). The village was developed in the middle of the 18th century and has a shop and junior school, with buses running to and from Alston, and for the winter months they have their own village snow plough. The village has a strong community feel to it.

An early viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the location and potential that the cottage provides.
