The Old Chapel: Dufton Pike as seen from Knock Pike

General

  • Quiet, family-friendly site on the edge of the North Pennines
  • A short walk to Murton Fell; 30 minutes’ drive to the Lake District
  • Fresh eggs available on site; 15 minutes' drive from a pub and café

Peace and quiet, chickens and ducks and the North Pennines… that’s the way of The Old Chapel, only a few miles’ walk from Murton Fell on the edge of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In this quiet part of the countryside, good scenery isn’t on the short side and the North Pennines isn’t the only splendid landscape… the Lake District National Park is half an hour’s drive away too.

All the family are welcome on this farm - there are portaloos, a hand-washing point and a standpipe with clean tap water to go around. Turkeys, chickens and ducks potter around this place too, meaning that there are plenty of fresh eggs, good news for those of you who are planning a barbecue.

Where to source those other bits and bobs for the grill or snacks to sweeten up your next hike? The site is in a little village known for its peaceful setting and it's just 10 minutes’ drive from the small town of Appleby-in-Westmorland and 15 minutes from Dufton, where there’s a café and pub that dishes out homecooked food.

When you're ready to take on Murton Fell, the hill is just 10 minutes’ walk away from the site, so you’ll have a good walk right within reach.

Local attractions

Nosy to know more about the North Pennines? Well, you’ll soon get to grips with all its waterfalls, hills and the likes, as there are a fair few popular patches within driving distance of the site. When you’re after somewhere close by, there’s High Cup Nick (five minutes’ drive) for an eight-mile trek up into the hills.

After that, deeper into the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, waterfalls come into play. There's Cauldron Snout (an hour and 10 minutes) below the Cow Green Reservoir and the powerful High Force Waterfall (55 minutes), where fishing and kayaking are in full flow on the river Tees and cycling and shooting on the surrounding land.

While you’re up that way, Ashgill Force (an hour) is a quieter waterfall and Summerhill Force & Gibson's Cave (55 minutes) has a little alcove for visitors to peer out from behind the cascade.

Then to turn back the clocks a little… Barnard Castle (half an hour) above the river Tees is from the 12th century and the sensory garden and turrets are still intact for you to have a look around.
