Previous visitors' comments about The Old Chapel:
The chapel fitted our criteria perfectly. It was quirky which was interesting. Most things were to be found in the house and there was ample provisions to tie us over.
Mrs Green, Plymouth, September 2012
There was lots of space and things to do in the cottage. The place had character.
