This fabulous, detached chapel conversion is situated one mile from Clovelly and can sleep eight people in four bedrooms.

Old Chapel is a wonderful, detached chapel conversion, set in an idyllic, rural setting overlooking the fishing village of Covelly in Devon. The property has four bedrooms, two with en-suites on the first floor and two on the second floor with a shared bathroom. There is a kitchen with a dining area, a separate dining room, a sitting room with vaulted ceilings and a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace housing a woodburner and, overlooking the sitting room, a galleried snug with a library of books.

Outside, the property has its own 10 acres of meadows with a wildlife pond and plenty of space for off road parking. In a great setting for exploring this beautiful region, Old Chapel is perfect for a family holiday or a getaway with friends.


Picturesque and calming base
We stayed here a few years ago and we had a great time.Due to obvious restrictions in recent times we haven?t had an opportunity to return until now ,at the time of writing this review we are actually staying in the chapel. The ambience and setting is still amazing the whole calming experience of being here is well worth a visit, the views over the bay are outstanding. It's position just off the main Atlantic highway makes it a perfect base to visit all parts of the north Devon coast and countryside as well as some great pubs and tea rooms. The chapel has everything needed for a family or friends get together and is well worth a visit!

Don't expect 5 star cleanliness
When we arrived,the property had not been properly cleaned. The kitchen in particular was too dirty for us to feel comfortable using it. In times of Covid this is just not good enough. We only stayed for a matter of hours then returned home. Despite this,the owner is taking no responsibility and has refused us any refund. The property is advertised as having Wifi but it is too slow to be of any use. It is supposed to be a 5 star property but its cleanliness clearly is not.

What a Beautiful Place.
I cannot recommend The Old Chapel enough. The views from the property are outstanding. It is beautifully set out, spacious and very well equipped. The decoration and quality of the property is excellent and there is masses of room for eight people. There was a welcome pack consisting of a bottle of wine, scones, jam & cream and a box of chocolates. When we walked through the the front door the place felt just like home, a great place to holiday with family or friends.

Old Chapel is a wonderful property, very spacious and in excellent condition. It enables a relaxing and enjoyable holiday to be had by all. It is better in real life than it looks in the pictures and was perfect for the two families of 4 in our party.
Mr Fenn

An excellent spacious property for the 4 adults in our party. The cottage is ideally based for exploring North Devon with spacious grounds and lovely views of the countryside & sea. The cottage was clean and welcoming with lots of nice comfy sofas to relax on at the end of a tiring day sightseeing, and with a well equipped kitchen should you wish to self cater. A highly recommended property.
