Chapel Gallery is a notable building with a roadside position at the foot of the popular Market Town of Hawes in Upper Wensleydale. It is adjacent to the play ground, directly opposite the crowd pulling Ropeworks, Dales Countryside Museum and main town car park. A prime retail position with guaranteed footfall.

Hawes is a busy town famous for it’s cheese as well as the stunning surrounding countryside. It has a weekly open air market and a wide range of shops, restaurants & cafes, a primary school, church & chapel, doctors surgery and active community life. It is very popular with both tourists and locals alike.

The building is a spacious (3900SqFt), full of character retained from the chapel conversion and offers scope for a huge range of business opportunities. The current owners have modernised the main retail floor, accessed from the street, to give a contemporary gallery with excellent natural light and display space. It would equally well make a beautiful restaurant or tea room, using the adjoining office store room as a kitchen area, planning consent dependent.

The lower ground workshop is approximately (1250Sq Ft) and accessible from the side garden, with large street level doors. It has 3-phase electrics and as well as the main room, has two good store or work rooms.

The apartment, which can be accessed independently from the ground floor, offers excellent family sized accommodation with 4 double bedrooms, modern shower room, kitchen and large living room with multi fuel stove. One of the bedrooms is currently used as a superb cinema room. There is a huge loft space with development/storage potential. The apartment could be let as separate residential or holiday accommodation if required.

Outside there is a small low maintenance patio area, and free street parking.

Chapel Gallery offers a rare opportunity to have quality commercial premises with excellent on site accommodation in a honey-pot town within the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

There is a professionally designed website www.chapelgalleryhawes.co.uk which is well worth a look! The Gallery is currently closed for personal reasons but there are domain names, trip advisor reviews, branding and a list of artists ready to exhibit, if someone wanted to continue a similar business, by negotiation with the owners.
