    Mr HeyburnOct 2021

  • "We were worried about a previous review and contacted you."

    We received reassurance that all would be well and the caretaker also confirmed that they had given the place a good clean. The Old Chapel is well situated for country walks. The pub is a genuine old style hostelry. We enjoyed our holiday.

  • "Cottage had overpowering smell of damp, surfaces in the downstairs area particularly (bedrooms + bathroom) were cold to the touch and clammy."

    Bathroom had black mould on ceiling and in tile grout. The property had not been cleaned properly with built up (sticky) dust on surfaces and flies etc. Stuck on blinds etc. The boiler has insufficient hotwater to fill the bath more than ~20cm making it nothing more than an ornament and meaning if more than one person wanted a shower the second person could not be sure they wouldn't get showered in cold water. This property needs a lot of work to get it up to a standard for it to be suitable for letting, don't book. We ended up coming home after 1 night of a 5 night stay as we could not relax.

The property

Surrounded by stunning scenery, in the picture perfect village of Drewsteignton, Old Chapel makes a wonderful base for families and friends to come together and explore the beauty of Dartmoor National Park.

This desirable area of Devon is ideal for those seeking peaceful relaxation amid pristine countryside.

With a reverse level layout, enter on the first floor to a lofty open plan living space, with wooden floors, raftered ceilings and a roaring woodburning stove.

Take a seat on the comfy sofas and settle down with a good book or a classic film on the smart TV.

In the kitchen you will find an impressive red Range style cooker and everything you'll need whilst on holiday to cater for your group.

The large dining table provides the perfect place to enjoy a home-cooked meal together and some quality family time.

When the evening draws to a close, choose from three pretty ground floor bedrooms, one with a kingsize bed, and two twin rooms.

All are serviced by a ground-floor bathroom with a freestanding bath and separate shower.

Enjoy summertime alfresco meals in the courtyard garden before heading out to explore the local area.

Drewsteignton enjoys a range of good pubs nearby and some excellent eateries.

After an afternoon exploring Castle Drogo and its extensive gardens, rambling in the National Park or walking nearby Teign Gorge, why not take an evening meal by the river or in the nearby town of Chagford, where you'll find quaint shops and boutiques.

Further afield, the cathedral city of Exeter offers plenty of retail therapy and family-friendly attractions, whilst the golden sandy beaches of the south coast can be reached with a short drive.

Old Chapel is a wonderful choice for a country getaway to glorious Devon.
