A stunning property in a great location. The chapel conversion is beautifully done and the extension makes the most of the wonderful views. It is furnished and equipped to a high standard. Convenient for Saunton Sands and a great base for exploring the North Devon coast and countryside. We had a wonderful holiday and cant wait to return.

We have stayed in many holiday cottage properties in Wales, north and south of England over the years and this property is by far the cleanest.

Dove Chapel is a lovely cottage for a family holiday with quick journeys to the various North Devon beaches. It is very spacious with plenty of room downstairs. All the equipment we needed was readily available. Largest double is downstairs which may be an issue for some but advantage for others. The only thing I would change if I could was the roaRead moredside parking which was a little tight with a large family car but it is clear in the brief so wasnt a surprise to us.

Dove Chapel was a fantastic base for our holiday in Devon. The property is in a stunning location overlooking the estuary. The lounge room with bifolding doors overlooking the garden, fields and valley below and onto the estuary youd never get tired of in any weather. The rest of the property was immaculate and very well equipped. The only thing toRead more bear in mind is the property is down quite a narrow road up a hill. You can park pretty much outside but have to tuck it in tight. Hide
