  • "We had a wonderful stay."

    This is a beautiful property with great views and very well appointed. There was just 2 of us staying so we had plenty of space. I worked from there for a few days and the wifi worked perfectly for all my video calls. Some feedback/comments: - There was no 'welcome book' so we got a bit confused as to where to put our rubbish and any other check out procedures but we did find the bins by the parking - There was no iron or ironing board (didn't both us but might bother others) - Main bedroom is massive but the en suite shower does have a low ceiling (it didn't bother us because we just used the shower downstairs) - The second bedroom is quite small (we didn't use it so again it didn't both us) - We were only left with towels for the 2 of us so this meant we didn't have hand towels for all the bathrooms which was a bit annoying. - It is a steep hill to walk down to the Ferry Inn (pub), cafe and water and no parking down there so I wouldn't recommend the property for people with mobility issues.

The property

Resting a short distance from the banks of the River Dart in Dittisham, Devon, you will find the brilliant, converted church property of The Old Chapel.

With allocated parking for one car, a stunning façade and interiors featuring exposed stone, shutter windows and a chandelier, and a superb position close to nearby amenities, this fabulous home welcomes a family or a group of sharing friends for a relaxing, self-catered stay in tranquil Devonshire setting whilst enjoying some river glimpses.

Enter your new home-from-home, hang up your outerwear in the front hallway before you step into the impressive, open-plan living space, which comprises a fully-equipped kitchen where delicious dinners can be prepared, a dining table with ample seating where you can gather to savour your meals, and a sitting area with vaulted ceilings, two sofas, a woodburning stove, and a sleek, wall-mounted Smart TV that serves as the social hub of the home.

Head upstairs, where you can enjoy views overlooking the sitting space from the mezzanine-level study, before you head to refresh with a rejuvenating shower on your way to catching your rest in either a plush king-size or double bed, the latter of which enjoys a gorgeous view of the River Dart from Velux windows.

If you can tear yourself from your lovely new base, set out to explore the many delights on offer in your local area.

A short stroll will bring you to your nearest post office that sells homely essentials, whilst a hearty pub lunch can be had at the nearby Ferry Boat Inn or The Anchorstone waterside restaurant.

When you're ready, hop on the ferry and cross the river to pay a visit to the National Trust site of Greenway Boathouse, or if something more exhilarating is desired, head west to the Woodlands Family Theme Park for a fun day out.

Further afield, a short drive south will bring you to Dartmouth, home to the Dartmouth Museum for history buffs, the picturesque Royal Avenue Gardens, and the ancient sites of Bayard's Cove Fort and Dartmouth Castle.

When you're done, head back to your new abode and unwind on the raised garden where you can soak in more of your scenic surroundings with a glass of your favourite tipple in hand.

Enjoy the ultimate escape to Devon by booking The Old Chapel.

Please note: Due to the location of the garden and the steep steps, children should be supervised.

Please note: As this was a former chapel, the old graveyard is adjacent to the property.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


  • Dartmouth 3.5 miles
  • Totnes 7 miles

Dittisham is a picturesque village surrounded by rolling countryside, located on the banks of the River Dart in the South Hams. Wander along the quiet streets lined with quaint, stone cottages and lush gardens, until you reach the waterfront. Dittisham’s quayside is often regarded as the hub of village activity. Stop at the Anchorstone Café for a spot of lunch while taking in the fantastic river views. Try your hand at some crabbing with the kids on the dinghy pontoon. Visit the iconic pink Ferry Boat Inn (or FBI as it is known locally). Ring the bell for the ferry and head across the Dart to Greenway, the once holiday home of the renowned Agatha
Christie. For outdoor activities, there are sailing schools and boat hire also paddle board and canoe hire, as well as plenty of
scenic walks. The harbour town of Dartmouth is just a short drive away or ferry away, and offers an array of shops, a cinema, plenty of restaurants and even a castle. Further afield, you will find plenty of fantastic beaches such as Blackpool and Slapton Sands, as well as key destinations such as Salcombe, Totnes, and Brixham to explore.
