A beautifully converted home in a fantastic location - highly recommended!

June 2019

This was the most wonderful stay in an absolutely stunning building and everything about this place is perfect - the most glorious interior and gardens. This was our base for our wedding in Lyme Regis and it will forever hold a special place in our hearts. We really could not have asked for anything more and hope to return again at some time in the future. Many, many thanks.

We spent 2 wonderful weeks at Musbury Chapel. It really is an exceptional holiday cottage, from the outside maintaining the character of a chapel whereas inside it is beautifully restored and designed. It is obvious that the owners lived there for some time and had thought of every detail. Everything we needed was provided, even lots of toys for children. We also enjoyed the beautiful view from the outside sitting area. The housekeeper did a great job preparing everything beautifully. Shopping : small SPAR shop 3 minutes walk, large TESCO supermarket in Axminster (5 miles away). Eating : The Hind, a great pub, just 3 minutes walk.

March 2019

Excellent cleanliness levels and well equipped if cooking. One of the beds was not made up upon arrival, however, they came to rectify the problem within an hour or two. Would thoroughly recommend the chapel and area.

Thanks for your review of Musbury Chapel - it's great to hear you found a well-stocked kitchen for all your holiday cooking needs. We're so sorry that one of the beds hadn't been made up on your arrival but really pleased that this was addressed quickly for you. We do hope you'd consider another trip to this part of Devon in the future to continue your explorations of this wonderful area. Bryony, Customer Support

Excellent accommodation within easy access of sea and countryside. Shop and pub in easy walking distance. Our Granddaughter enjoyed discovering all the many toys and books. Probably one of the best cottages we have stayed in.

October 2018

Wow, wow, wow! We were blown away with the beautifully restored chapel. Everything thing that we needed was provided, including everything for our young children. The location is perfect, with a short drive to Lyme Regis, Seaton and Beer and a mixture of sandy and pebble beaches.

An amazing place and we felt lucky to stay there. We also hope to be back next year.

October 2018

Lovely building and the mix of old and new items within was just right and interesting.

Everything we could have wanted was provided.

September 2018

We had a wonderful 4 days at Musbury Chapel. The location, interiors and attention to detail was perfect. It truly felt like a home away from home.

An excellent location, and the chapel had everything you'd need for a holiday away with families with children and pets.

Can't recommend highly enough.

September 2018

Overall this is an excellent facility with a wonderful family/homely and relaxing feel to it. Can't help but love the neighbouring cows that come to meet you on arrival.

September 2018

A lovely property in a good location for exploring the Jurassic coast. Very well equipped with fantastic views over the Devon countryside.

September 2018

Wonderful place. Really was home from home and everything was thought of... spotlessly clean. We will definately be recommending the Chapel and would be happy to stay here again if or when we visit Devon again.

August 2018

The cottage is an absolutely wonderful space in a great location for east Devon & west Dorset. The added home from home touches made it a pleasure to come ‘home’ to and those days when the weather was inclement meant staying ‘at home’ was equally enjoyable.

August 2018

One of the best rental properties we have stayed in. It felt very much like someone's home, rather than an impersonal letting. The space is great for families or groups of friends, with acres of room to gather in the living area, or at one of the two dining tables. The views from the kitchen are lovely, and the garden is thoughtfully planted to give privacy and make the most of the views.

Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
