Property code: LEECH

Stunning former-Wesleyan chapel, situated in the seaside village of Lee Bay, with its picturesque beach and well-regarded pub just a short walk from the property.

Lee Bay is a quiet, unspoilt village with a welcoming village pub, which also operates a tearoom from Easter through to October. The bay after which the village is named has a fantastically secluded beach, which at low tide offers a lovely sandy area, perfect for children to play and build sandcastles. The surrounding area is full of interesting places for days out, including Combe Martin Wildlife Park, the town of Ilfracombe, Exmoor National Park, and the expansive beaches at Croyde and Woolacombe.

This former-Wesleyan chapel, dating back to 1889, has been lovingly maintained and updated to offer stylish accommodation where period features sit alongside modern conveniences. It is one-of-two adjoining properties which can be booked either individually or together, to accommodate a total of seven guests. The property is approached via a set of external stone stairs, on which guests are asked to exercise caution. At the heart of the property is the stunning open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, which is dominated by three beautiful stained glass windows which overlook the dining area. A double-sided chimney within which sits a double-sided wood burner, separates the dining area from the lounge, where comfortable sofas give guests a relaxing space from which to enjoy the TV, DVD, and iPod dock, or perhaps enjoy one of the selection of board games. The kitchen, which is set off to one side, is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, and dishwasher, whilst a shared utility room has a washing machine, tumble dryer, and fridge/freezer. Grand wooden staircases at either end of the room, lead to the first-floor accommodation where there are three bedrooms. The first of these is a galleried double room, situated on its own mezzanine floor, whilst the two further bedrooms are double and single respectively. Guests should note that all of the bedrooms have some reduced head-height due to the sloping ceilings. The bathroom offers a bath, separate shower, and WC.

Outside, the property benefits from a south-facing patio with garden furniture and a BBQ, which gives way to a lawn area and a terraced flower garden, which enjoys far reaching views to the sea. There is roadside parking for one car just downhill from the property, with additional parking available in the nearby village car park.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Nice location but does need some tlc and a really good spring clean

Reviewed by Jodi, 15th July 2017

I am sure some people would enjoy the the quirky and quaint atmosphere of the converted church but I'm afraid it wasn't for me. It didn't feel very clean - there were a lot of cobwebs, and some of the cutlery and pans weren't washed very well. It smelt a bit musty too. The location was lovely being in the gorgeous little village of Lee. On the posiRead moretive side, it is very spacious with plenty of good DVD's and games to play. Hide

Well dressed rooms, good size kitchen/diner and sitting room. Shortage of toilet rolls/kitchen towel and no cling film seem to be a bit on the tight side.

Reviewed by Lydia, 27th December 2016

We had a great holiday here at New Year - cold and sunny outside but the fire really helped and plenty of wintery cliff top walks. The kids loved the quirky chapel, I would like to bring the bathroom and the seaside home with me.
