A spacious family holiday home with indoor 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.

We booked chudleigh for a big family gathering. From the moment we walked in we saw just how grand and plush the property was. The towels on the bed, freshly baked bread and welcome treats in the kitchen, the vast space in the house and the gorgeous and well maintained swimming pool.The house itself is so big that everyone had their own room and space and the communal areas the perfect size for family games and eating. We made use of the bbq and loved sitting outside in the garden. Also we made regular use of the swimming pool and sauna. The property was fantastic and we had the best weekend!Mrs Wadhwa, Middlesex - 3rd July 2017
