An architect and some enthusiastic lovers of this country church battled against all odds to save it. Originally built by the architect Temple Moore, it has been beautifully restored and has retained many of the original features and colours with the addition of Nordic insulation and a brand new wing of contemporary loveliness. In the church there’s a wood-burner, a dining table with pews for feasting and a bedroom in the chancel with little doors to close behind you. The original soaring ceiling is wooden and curved, providing super acoustics. Its beautifully equipped kitchen with blood red glass tiles sits next to the main body of the church and links the old with the delightfully airy new. Light floods in here and the calm grey tiled bathroom with lush big bath will be perfect after wandering the heathered moors. At the back a sunroom with sofa bed overlooks the burgeoning garden. Next door is a working farm with waddling ducks, cheeky chickens and grazing sheep. Helmsley, a lovely busy market town is a mile away; The Star, a revered pub, is a short drive. A welcome pack will cheer your arrival at this unique place.
