This stunning 19th-century church promises a memorable holiday, with its stained glass windows, vaulted ceilings, wood burners and large garden.

Located in the rural hamlet of Hollocombe in mid-Devon, this stunning converted church of St. Michaels & All Angels was built by the Earl of Portsmouth in 1891 and has one of only two Saddleback towers in Devon. It was decommissioned in 1978 and has been beautifully and sympathetically restored and converted to provide a wonderful unique country retreat with historic charm. Ideal for a relaxing break or to celebrate a special occasion, this detached property retains many of its original features that have been blended together to create a beautiful holiday home. From the vaulted ceilings in the bedrooms and stained glass windows, to the large inviting living room with wood burner, original vestry with second wood burner and state-of-the-art kitchen, this is a property promising a memorable holiday. Outside the garden has a large patio area providing the perfect spot to enjoy peace and tranquillity, as well as for al fresco dining. There are some great public footpaths and bridleways directly from the house into the surrounding countryside. Just to reassure you, there is no graveyard at this property!

    One of the best places we’ve ever stayed. We loved it so much that we are returning for Christmas this year. A fantastic place to stay, extremely well equipped and welcomed by the lovely Gilly who thinks of everything to make your stay so special! We would recommend this wonderful gem to people of all ages!!

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your lovely review. It was such a pleasure to greet you and your beautiful family and glad you had a great Christmas at St Michaels. It’s exciting to have you back next year… You were such thoughtful guests and even brought your own logs for the fire. I really look forward to seeing you all at Christmas this year and have a great 2019. Best wishes Gilly xxx

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Was lovely to meet you all and so pleased you enjoyed staying at St. Michaels. I’m sure your beautiful dog enjoyed the lovely walks right outside the house. Nice to know you saw so many nice places in Devon and hope your trip to Dawlish was as memorable as you expected. Best regards.

    We decided to celebrate my 50th birthday here with family and we're glad we did. The chapel was everything and more we had hoped for. Would certainly come back.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Even the off season snow storm didn’t spoil your birthday… It was a pleasure to meet you both and I am so pleased you enjoyed St. Michaels. It’s always a pleasure to meet such nice respectful guests and you certainly were. Hope to see you again. Best wishes.
