Tucked away just off the centre of the village is 2 Chapel Cottages in Fylingthorpe which leads directly into Robin Hoods Way a leisurely 8 minute walk. This is a building with a history. A charming stone built cottage, formerly a small village chapel but converted to its present use over a hundred years ago. The cottage is very well appointed, with a stylish modern kitchen, but retaining the character of the 1800's. Wesley is reputed to have preached at this chapel a number of times.
A homely lounge with sofas and big squishy cushions a feature gas stove to warm those fingers and toes and dining area. The shaker style kitchen has a fabulous range cooker with integral fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Ground floor bathroom.
