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!

    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 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.

    What a find. Can not believe such a place could be found in that area. Well done Gilly for your unique interior design. Would definitely not stay there again in the winter/rainy season. The immediate roads are appalling. However, we were there to celebrate a family birthday and there is nothing much you can do about the date being in January. As a family of 6 adults and a dog we really settled in and found the Church very comfortable, warm and relaxing. Lots of care and attention to detail had gone into the preparation for our stay. We felt we could ask any question and nothing would be too much trouble.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I am so pleased you enjoyed St. Michaels. I try to give my guests the luxury they would get in a 5* hotel at a good reasonable price. Unfortunately the country roads all over the UK are suffering due to Council waiting repair lists and the unusual rainfall in January. I am pleased to say the worst few holes have been filled. Thank you for your feedback and I am so pleased you enjoyed St. Michaels.
