Chapel Cottage in Ilfracombe, North Devon, offers glorious self catering accommodation in a charming cottage brimming with character and history. Situated in a spectacular costal village location and boasting 2 acres of flat gardens and field, our holiday cottage will prove to be an unforgettable holiday destination.


Our stunning self catering holiday home was originally a Celtic Chapel and by AD 1416 it was mentioned in Bishop Stafford’s register as a Chapel of Ease and in Bishop Lacy’s register in 1439 as the Chapel of St Wardred at Legh. The cottage has even had many famous visitors over the years including T.S. Elliot, Sydney Carter, Evelyn and William De Morgan and Anthony Powell. The latter wrote about his stay at Chapel Cottage in his book “Faces in Time”.

The sheltered and secluded cottage sleeps up to 9 guests in 4 bedrooms. Upstairs there is a superking ziplink bed and large twin ziplink bed with wonderful sea views and the tennis court and forestry to the right. We also have a king size bed with breath taking views up the valley, overlooking the magical gardens. Downstairs is a family bedroom with king size bed, single bed and cot, with extensive views of the garden towards the sea. The property has a spacious and sunny dual aspect farmhouse kitchen with a large dining table, perfect for families to enjoy delicious meals on. The kitchen also boasts a stable door and double internal glass doors for cooler day, allowing the sunshine in.

The property also has a relaxing and comfortable lounge with central wood burner and wooden floors, with double doors leading onto the tennis court and pretty lawns. The cottage also has another seating with table and chairs, ideal for unwinding on after a game of tennis or a day exploring the scenic bay.

Guests can enjoy playing on our private tennis court or stroll around our superb grounds which includes luscious lawns and beautiful paths. We also have garden furniture and a parasol on the patio area, with Weber BBQ for al fresco dining.
