An impressive escape for families and larger groups alike, The Old Chapel comfortably accommodates up to sixteen guests throughout the year, and is a fantastic base to explore Dartmoor National Park, the Teignbridge coastline and the fabulous range of local shops and eateries on offer in the historic town of Chudleigh and surrounding area! Looking for something with the same great features but for less people? Outside of the main season we can also offer reduced occupancy discounts for a three bedroom configuration as The Old Chantry!
A large, pet-friendly family home that is perfectly suited to gentle get-togethers and family celebrations, The Old Chapel offers a mix of traditional character charm combined with the modern fixtures you would expect when staying in South Devon. Come rain or shine, families will love sitting out and watching the sun set in the private garden as the stream runs along the border, after a day of fun in the private 12m heated indoor pool with adjoining sauna room. Not in the mood for a dip? Why not release your competitive side with the games room, complete with pool table, darts board and table football, as well as selection of board games!

The Local Area
Chudleigh is a town steeped in local history, and is an undiscovered gem in many ways. Although nestled away in the trees, Chudleigh is in fact less than ten miles from the centre of Exeter, with a great selection of nearby attractions to keep everyone entertained: Haldon Forest Park with Go Ape Forest Adventure, cycle hire and miles of woodland tracks (5 minute drive), Virtual Jet Centre (2 mins), Finlake Riding Centre (3 mins) and brilliant outdoor activities, including climbing, at The Rock Centre (2 mins). There are 3 golf courses all within a 6 mile radius, plus plenty of scenic walking on Dartmoor (15 minute drive) and along The South West Coastal Path.
If you're not looking for an active break then why not take a trip to the cathedral city of Exeter (15 mins drive), with its Princesshay and Guildhall shopping centres, or have a day relaxing on one of the surrounding beaches at Teignmouth (20 mins), Shaldon or Torbay.
Linen, towels & pool towels provided for your stay.
There is a gym area by the pool with cross trainer, rowing machine and exercise bike.

What an amazing Christmas we've had. Being able to stay together under one roof was so special for all of us and your incredible home was the icing on the cake. The pool, games room, lounge and kitchen space is fantastic. We were never on top of each other and have had a really brilliant time. Great memories have been made this Christmas. Thank you.Mc Elligotts - 25th December 2019
Thank you for a fabulous weekend at the Old Chapel. The house was perfect and we could not have asked for anything more. Everything was spotless when we arrived. Beautiful flowers on the dining table with a lovely hamper of goodies. We had 12 children between us all and they were all kept entertained by the pool which they loves and the quiet break out time. The bathrooms were a big novelty with the jacuzzi disco bath and shower that could fit a whole football team in super family friendly with high chairs/kids bowls + cutlery, travel cots, etc. Already talking about our next stay! Thank you from all of us. NCT Crowd from Bristol - 24th November 2019
An amazing family weekend. There were 15 of us staying of us, but because the house is so big didn't feel like we were on top of each other. The children + adults loved playing in the pool - the inflatables and music were a great hit! We would definitely recommend this accommodation and will hopefully be back at some point in the future. Thank you so much for the scones, cream, jam and Prosecco. What a lovely touch. The house and kitchen are well equipped for a big family - it was great not having to pack the kitchen sink. Thanks again, we will back. Vanessa & John - 8th November 2019

From meeting Vanessa and John as they greet us with a very warm welcome. We just knew we were going to have a wonderful week. Thank you. The house is just perfect for a family get together. Lovely lounges and relaxing rooms for all to enjoy. The large dining room was fantastic for family meals and Bingo evenings. The games room was used daily by young and old (we are a very competitive family). Darts who was a big hit for newcomers, the ladies did well. And I guess the star of the house the swimming pool, we all loved it, we all used the pool twice daily and on a couple of days three times, it was a huge plus with us all.

We booked chudleigh for a big family gathering. From the moment we walked in we saw just how grand and plush the property was. The towels on the bed, freshly baked bread and welcome treats in the kitchen, the vast space in the house and the gorgeous and well maintained swimming pool.The house itself is so big that everyone had their own room and space and the communal areas the perfect size for family games and eating. We made use of the bbq and loved sitting outside in the garden. Also we made regular use of the swimming pool and sauna. The property was fantastic and we had the best weekend!Mrs Wadhwa, Middlesex - 3rd July 2017
