Very Good

“New Year at the chapel”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2020

We had an amazing time staying at the chapel for a 4 night break. There were 6 of us plus dogs and we walked a marathon in 3 days!!! The chapel was well equipped and the pool table and aga were a great added bonus. The beds were extra comfy and the garden was great. Thanks for a fantastic break.

Owner's reply: Hello Andy, thank you for your lovely review! I'm really glad you had a good time – I genuinely love having guests who love the chapel and area as much as I do, Jane and I would be privileged to have you stay again. For a cottage in the middle of the countryside, there is a surprising amount of stuff to see and do, I'm glad you made the most of the area – and of course the White Horse! (Tim and the staff are always very welcoming whenever my family goes there – which is every time we stay at the Chapel!) It's also nice to hear you made the most of the house, the snooker table is a favourite of mine – and the library is a work in progress, I don't suppose I shall stop collecting books to appeal to all tastes until there is no more room for bookshelves (and we're a long way from that!). Glad also that your dogs had a good time – we're committed dog-lovers too and it's a great spot with the big closed garden and Exmoor right on the doorstep. Incidentally, I don't know if you knew, but the spring in the garden is one of the holy wells of Somerset and probably predates the Chapel (which itself was built around 1200AD) – and perhaps even Christianity. Just thrilled to hear what a good time you had Andy. I hope you took away lots of lovely memories and that we might welcome you all back one day. Jason

“Lovely cottage with a beautiful garden”

Reviewed 21 May 2018

The chapel was everything we had hoped for, very clean and comfortable. The garden was beautiful with all the spring flowers in bloom and dog safe as fully enclosed. The cottage was warm and cozy with good sized rooms. We had 2 good meals at The White Horse which is just a 5 minute walk up the road. It has a nice garden too. We never tire of Dunster or Lynmouth and enjoy the river walk at The Tarr Steps. We would happily stay here again in this quirky, pretty cottage. Thank you Jason and Jane for your help.

Owner's reply: Hello Lyn, Thank you very much, I'm so pleased you had a good stay! We do make every effort to make you feel at home – so it's great to hear that we're doing something right. The White Horse is a smashing little pub, and my family never tire of visiting Dunster; for a relatively small medieval village on Exmoor, there always seems to be something new to see there. It was an absolute pleasure to have you stay Lyn, we'd gladly welcome you back! Jason

Owner's reply: Thank you for those lovely sentiments, I'm really happy you had such a good stay! It really means a lot to me to hear you had such a great time. It certainly sounds as if you made the best of West Somerset too – it's a smashing area, my family love visiting Exmoor. It is an unusual building, and I love sharing its history and foibles with guests; I'm glad that we got everything right in preparing it for you too – the privilege was all ours to have such appreciative guests to stay!

Owner's reply: I'm very glad to hear you and your family had a good holiday Mark, the garden is set to let dogs have the run of the garden without getting out - also good to see a thumbs-up for Exmoor Adventures too.
