    Lovely property but a bit too remote for us really. Lots of cupboards in the kitchen but they were all full of things you don't need these days and no space to store groceries etc.but other than that everything was how you'd want it to be.

    We had a fantastic week staying in this property. You need to drive a bit to explore as there is not much to do in ashwater. This is an excellent location for anyone wanting a relaxing peaceful location. Very well equipped and very comfy. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

    Very nice accommodation on the Devon/Cornwall Border. Property is very well equipped in a lovely area - we loved the peace and quiet - there's a secluded garden overlooking a field with sheep at the back of the chapel - nice to sit out in the evening with a bottle of wine and just unwind.

    Had an amazing time, cottage was superb and had everything you could possibly want... downside is the parking is limited but you can always park by the pub which is five minutes walk.. village pub is nice and accomadates both children and dogs and the food is amazing value for money with lots of choice.. village shop is worth a visit if only to support the local community... access to village can be a little concerning if your sat nav is having a bad day but overall an amazing place that I would love to goback time and time again..

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your lovely comments. Unfortunately I cannot widen the driveway and I know this is an issue. Cars have become bigger since we purchased the chapel.

    This was just what we were after for our holiday. Warm and cosy, well equipped, quiet village, lovely pub, lovely village shop, friendly locals. Thank you so much for offering this lovely place for holidays, we'd quite happily stay there for a few months! I'm sure we'll be back.

    Lovely cottage and local pub. Decorated for Christmas so really homely. Parking but tight for my car but managed to reverse in - snug but sufficient. Will be booking again.

    loved the property very much. it was the style of the property that made me choose it .we felt at home and could relax in the two large sofas,the parking unfortunatly was a bit tight for my sons car but we soon sorted that out by getting out the car before parking .would like to come again in the near future.

    We found the Former Chapel to be very clean and comfortable had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Our grandchildren although disappointed not have internet access in the cottage managed really well without and had a great time . The only issue is the tight parking space at the side of the Chapel just take extra care driving into it and you will be fine we had a couple of mishaps . Small friendly shop in the village and the Inn is well worth a visit for dinner
