  • "Wonderful stay."

    Had everything you could want if you have children. A fabulous holiday rental.

    Ms KeenanDec 2021

  • "This was our 2nd time of staying at Chapel Cottage, a beautiful place to stay with lots of breathtaking coastal walks, it had everything we needed for our stay and the welcome pack of scones and tea was lovely after a long journey, thank you to Linda the housekeeper for having the place beautifully cleaned and presented, that's why we came back because we couldn't fault anything."

    We will be back again at sometime in the future.

    Mrs BurrowsNov 2021

  • "Lovely cottage, spacious inside and well equipped."

    The garden is small as described, but perfect for our dog to stretch her legs when we weren’t out exploring the countryside/ coastline together. My only recommendation for the kitchen would be a big lidded dish for casserole/stew for the size of the party (sleeps 8), or a slow cooker - autumn/winter comfort food, easy to prepare and leave to cook, whilst you are out. The house was clean and fresh and a lovely cream tea awaited us on arrival. Thank you, we will be back!

  • "Lovely spacious cottage."

    5 Adults shared this and we had entry of space. Rural as expected. Didn't expect it to be so close to the pub that every morning between 5.30 and 6 you were woken by the comings and goings of the bin men and trades people. The garden is very very small the picture taken with a wide angle lens is very misleading. Cottage far to hot with Rayburn on all the time made it unpleasant at night even with all the windows open. Thank goodness it wasn't the height of summer! Lack of cleaning products and minimal larder bits, oil, herbs etc doesn't help when you have a 20 minute drive to a supermarket. Check in not till 5pm is rather late don't blame it on Covid 3pm would have been much better. All round they could have done better.

    Mrs MacleanSep 2021

  • "We enjoyed our stay very much and the only downside was most properties have a downstairs cloakroom/toilet nowadays and this facility was missed greatly by young and old alike!"

    Two bathrooms upstairs though. Old Smithy Pub did good food but it became booked up very quickly so two days notice is a must in this era of staycation. Nearest large supermarket was 8 miles away in Kilkhampton, Coop or 11miles in Bideford, Morrisons

    Mr GibbonsAug 2021

  • "A beautiful cottage in a beautiful location very comfortable and well equipped for a perfect family holiday"

    Mrs BowyerJul 2021

  • "Chapel Cottage was very comfortable and made an excellent base for exploring this part of the North Devon coast"

    Ms MunroJun 2021

  • "Gorgeous cosy cottage - loved our stay."

    As two families staying, the second double bedroom was tiny which is fine as it’s a lovely cottage. But the mattress on a normal size double needs to be really firm (I could feel the springs) if it’s only a double these days... my only constructive feedback. Otherwise a perfect stay. The garden is small but perfectly formed - beautiful and great location for all the beaches around Bude, Welcombe Mouth and of course The Old Smithy Inn where we ate twice!

    Mrs SpringsguthMay 2021

  • "POSITIVES. Fantastic cottage, clean, everything you would need in facilities."

    NEGATIVES. only moan we could find was one of the double mattresses was not that good. WOULD DEFINITELY GO BACK.

    Mr Wilks-wiffenMay 2021

  • "We had a lovely holiday at Chapel Cottage."

    it’s a beautiful property and a great location. It had everything you could probably need. If I had any criticism it is that some of the bedrooms were rather small. My husband and I was in one of the double bedrooms and really I think that is more suited to a single room.

    Mrs JohnsonJul 2019

The property

This cosy cottage is attached to an old chapel in the heart of Welcombe hamlet, 1½ miles from Welcombe Mouth.

Head down the steps to the porch into a hall where you can leave your boots and coats, and then through to the big country-style kitchen with its lovely traditional beams, Rayburn and dining area.

The sitting room is another cosy room where you can snuggle up beside the wood burning stove.

Head on up to your four bedrooms where you will sleep peacefully after exploring the lovely unspoiled scenery all around.

You have a sunny little bench to sit out and enjoy a morning coffee in your little enclosed garden.

There’s no need to cook at this cottage unless you want to, since the ancient thatched pub which serves up excellent food is just 100 yards from the door.

You may have worked up an appetite by walking down the valley to the cove – or you can just drive down and park by the beach.

If you are an experienced surfer this is a great beach to hone your skills, or just enjoy sitting quietly on the beach which is sheltered between picturesque high cliffs.

The South West Coast Path passes by, leading you to Hartland and dramatic views, as well as providing great bird watching opportunities.

With the good pub and an interesting beach so close, Chapel Cottage is a welcoming base for unwinding.

About the location


Bude 12 miles; Bideford 14 miles.

A pretty country village just one mile from the high cliffs, rocky coves and golden sands of the north Devon/Cornwall coast, as well as the beach at Welcombe Mouth with its sand, rocks, and some fabulous waves to ride. West, along the coast, are excellent beaches at Widemouth Bay, Sandymouth and Bude. To the north the coast path winds its way toward Hartland Point Lighthouse and on to Clovelly (8 miles) with its steep cobbled streets leading down to the harbour and pub below. No cars allowed here but you can hire a donkey for the ride! In the nearby area are several farm and theme parks, golf courses and outstanding gardens whilst the amenities of Bude are a mere 12 miles away. Everything for an enjoyable holiday.
