A spacious family holiday home with indoor heated swimming pool, in the former woollen town of Chudleigh with the country walks on your doorstep and the beach in reach.

The Old Chapel ticks all the boxes - perfect for guests in search of a large period property in a good location with all local amenities on the doorstep. The fabulous pool house is fabulous, a great place to get together and enjoy some fun with family and friends. It’s rare to find a property with a pool, sauna and games room for your sole use!!

Over time, The Chapel has been extended and transformed into a unique holiday home with ample accommodation for up to 16 people in 6 bedrooms - two with ensuites and 4 separate bathrooms. The gardens are extensive and there’s plenty of parking on the driveway.

The property is within walking distance to the shops, pubs and restaurants of this ancient town. We recommend visiting Exeter, with its first class university and beautiful cathedral and green, museums and galleries. The lovely Northernhay Gardens on the northern side of Rougemont Castle are the oldest public gardens in England so well worth a stroll. It’s also a great place to shop and stop off for lunch with some excellent cafes, restaurants and stylish shops.

Chudleigh, known as 'The Gateway to Haldon', is a market town steeped in history and perfectly placed for visiting Dartmoor and the South West. Visit nearby Ugbrooke House and Gardens (open Jul - Sep), Haldon Forest Park with cycle hire and miles of woodland tracks, GoApe Forest Adventure, Virtual Jet Centre, Finlake Riding Centre and brilliant outdoor activities including climbing, at The Rock Centre. There are 3 golf courses all within a 6 mile radius, plus plenty of scenic walking on Dartmoor and along The South West Coastal Path, not forgetting the 22 miles of South Devon beaches!

Eating out is a real treat - from pub fare and fish & chips to a Michelin starred restaurant Gidleigh Park, and everything in between. Try the Riverford Farm & Field Kitchen Restaurant in Buckfastleigh, specialising in dishes prepared from locally grown organic veg and meat from local farms.

Mrs Shirley C,

Have had a wonderful time in your beautiful house the pool was used all the time. We have stayed in many holiday cottages large and small but this exceed them all. The attention to details was second to none there was no item or equipment we couldn't find. Thank you from us all.

Shirley + Family,

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your wonderful home. The pool was wonderful and the master bedroom served us very well. Thanks again.

Hampton Family,

What an amazing Christmas we've had. Being able to stay together under one roof was so special for all of us and your incredible home was the icing on the cake. The pool, games room, lounge and kitchen space is fantastic. We were never on top of each other and have had a really brilliant time. Great memories have been made this Christmas. Thank you.

Mc E,

Thank you for a fabulous weekend at the Old Chapel. The house was perfect and we could not have asked for anything more. Everything was spotless when we arrived. Beautiful flowers on the dining table with a lovely hamper of goodies. We had 12 children between us all and they were all kept entertained by the pool which they loves and the quiet break out time. The bathrooms were a big novelty with the jacuzzi disco bath and shower that could fit a whole football team in super family friendly with high chairs/kids bowls + cutlery, travel cots, etc. Already talking about our next stay! Thank you from all of us.

Previous Customer,

An amazing family weekend. There were 15 of us staying of us, but because the house is so big didn't feel like we were on top of each other. The children + adults loved playing in the pool - the inflatables and music were a great hit! We would definitely recommend this accommodation and will hopefully be back at some point in the future. Thank you so much for the scones, cream, jam and Prosecco. What a lovely touch. The house and kitchen are well equipped for a big family - it was great not having to pack the kitchen sink. Thanks again, we will back.

Vanessa & J,

Thank you for sharing this wonderful house. It's stunning, we've all had a brilliant stay.

Previous Customer,

The 8 of us had a great time we all loved the pool we were in it every day, we also liked the game room, it was epic.

Previous Customer,

From meeting Vanessa and John as they greet us with a very warm welcome. We just knew we were going to have a wonderful week. Thank you. The house is just perfect for a family get together. Lovely lounges and relaxing rooms for all to enjoy. The large dining room was fantastic for family meals and Bingo evenings. The games room was used daily by young and old (we are a very competitive family). Darts who was a big hit for newcomers, the ladies did well. And I guess the star of the house the swimming pool, we all loved it, we all used the pool twice daily and on a couple of days three times, it was a huge plus with us all. Once again Vanessa + John Many thanks for trusting us with your beautiful home.

The Milne Family,

Fabulous stay here! Ideal for a family. The pool was great and the kitchen very well equipped . Plenty of information about how to work everything. Good Location for loads of beaches! We had a really lovely time to celebrate a 40th birthday. Plenty of space for us all to sit around the dinner table.
