Further details indoors:
As you enter the OLD CHAPEL through the large original double church doors, you are immediately greeted by the cavernous space and height of this property.
Down the passage you enter the enormous double lounge on two levels, where there is seating easily catering for large groups, and a sofa bed. Light enters the room from both sides, transmitted through spectacular stain glass panes. Wood panelling, fascinating artifacts and feature walls complete the space.
The lounge has a games area, which contains a scaled down snooker/pool table for your enjoyment. Beyond the games area you enter a further living area, originally used by the Sunday school, and swathed in light. This double volume space contains the large wooden dining area, easily seating 8 as well as further living space and seating. To warm yourself, over a glass of red wine and a good book, is the electric feature fireplace.
From the second lounge/dining area enter the kitchen, with modern appliances and real wood surfaces, with electric 4-plate hob, fitted oven, microwave, fitted fridge, integrated dish washer, tumble drier and separate freezer.
Near the entrance you will encounter the first bedroom, with feature stain glass panes, ample storage and twin beds (can be converted into a double) - all lovingly decorated.
From the first lounge climb a large winding staircase, supported by the original pulpit, with commanding views over the lounge. On the upper level is the master bedroom with large double bed and en-suite shower room containing electric power shower, WC and basin. The room is lit by tasteful velux windows which do not detract from the character of the home.
Leading from the entrance hall there is a large family bathroom, which contains a WC, bath and basin. The bathroom lets in lots of light and is tastefully decorated in wood and neutral colours.

We had an absolute ball staying in this huge, beautiful chapel. With two different wings and a mezzanine balcony, it was easy to play lord of the manor; when we weren't playing pool, bagatelle... more

We just loved it. A largeish Chapel which has real character, it would have been big enough for a family of five but we didn't feel as if we were rattling. It was in a lovely quiet village which was bag dark at night, 3 doors up from the local pub. It was getting autumnal when we arrived so we didn't make use of the garden, but had we been earlier in the season we would have done so. A one mile walk into Braunton offered everything we needed and we visited many wonderful places using the car while we were there. We intend to return and have already recommended it to several friends.
Choice Cottages are very happy you enjoyed your stay at OLD CHAPEL (Braunton) and will pass your comments to the owner. We hope to see you soon for your next Holiday in North Devon.
