The property

This fabulous, detached chapel conversion is situated in a rural location just one mile from Clovelly, a picturesque coastal village in North Devon.

Now a bright, contemporary holiday home with eight foot high church windows, this spacious property overlooks its own 10 acres of meadows, where sheep graze and guests can wander.

The property sits in an idyllic, rural setting and enjoys far-reaching views of the sea and Lundy Island, while the interior of this impressive conversion is equally striking.

A large hallway leads to a light sitting room, with vaulted ceilings and three large sofas facing a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, housing a multi-fuel stove.

From the hall, a spiral staircase ascends into a galleried snug overlooking the sitting room.

It has a good library of books, and when you need a bit of peace and quiet, it's the perfect place to catch up on some reading and enjoy the views of the countryside.

Next to the spacious kitchen, which has a breakfast area and a separate utility, the dining room has plenty of space for the whole family to gather together.

Upstairs is conveniently arranged, with two en-suite bedrooms on the first floor and two bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor, all reached via a traditional staircase.

The master bedroom has a TV and a balcony, with wonderful sea views across the meadows and wildlife pond.

The garden, meadows and pond provide a fabulous setting for family picnics, walks and ball games in the summer.

Lundy, the largest island in the English Channel, can be seen from here and regular boat trips to the island are available from nearby Bideford.

With its ample collection of long, sandy beaches, this area of Devon is a great for swimming, kitesurfing and bodyboarding, or, for an easy afternoon, visit the charming fishing village of Clovelly and try and spot the donkeys trundling up the hill with their packages.

With so many wonderful things to see and do, a stay in this beautiful chapel conversion provides the family with a huge variety of activities.

About the location


Bideford 8 miles.

The picturesque fishing village of Clovelly occupies a secluded, cliffside position and attracts visitors from the world over. A pedestrianised, cobbled street winds its way down the hillside passing the colourful gardens that characterise the village's pretty, whitewashed cottages, on its way down to the sheltered harbour. Local shops, pubs and restaurants crowd the working harbour from where the local fishermen show their daily catch of mackerel and check their lobster pots. Follow the stunning coast over the clifftops toward the romantic Hartland Point, or to the colourful market town of Bideford, with its quaint quay, medieval bridge and vibrant shopping area. Nearby, the famous Westward Ho! provides superb beaches and excellent watersports opportunities, while the Big Sheep Adventure Park will occupy the whole family! A beautiful and inspirational location for a memorable holiday.
