    About this property

    This stunning 19th-century church promises a memorable holiday, with its stained glass windows, vaulted ceilings, wood burners and large garden.
    Located in the rural hamlet of Hollocombe in mid-Devon, this stunning converted church of St. Michaels & All Angels was built by the Earl of Portsmouth in 1891 and has one of only two Saddleback towers in Devon. It was decommissioned in 1978 and has been beautifully and sympathetically restored and converted to provide a wonderful unique country retreat with historic charm. Ideal for a relaxing break or to celebrate a special occasion, this detached property retains many of its original features that have been blended together to create a beautiful holiday home. From the vaulted ceilings in the bedrooms and stained glass windows, to the large inviting living room with wood burner, original vestry with second wood burner and state-of-the-art kitchen, this is a property promising a memorable holiday. Outside the garden has a large patio area providing the perfect spot to enjoy peace and tranquillity, as well as for al fresco dining. There are some great public footpaths and bridleways directly from the house into the surrounding countryside. Just to reassure you, there is no graveyard at this property!

    The nearby villages of Winkleigh, 1½ miles, Chulmleigh and Dolton, both 4 miles, have local shops, coffee shops and pubs.

    "Fantastic place had everything but not close to anything"

    "Lovely cottage , great facilities but a drive to go anywhere which you either like or don’t."
    Cornelius ‐ 18 Aug 2018
    "A beautifully restored property which was a pleasure to stay in. The kitchen facilities were first rate and the bathrooms were a hit with the women in our group. Even though we stayed in August, the wood burning stove came in handy in the evenings and added real character to the main room. Our host Ginny was warm and welcoming and the basket of food and wine she provided was a lovely touch. We came away with great memories after spending the week touring the N.W coast and charming towns of Devon."

    "Absolutely amazing property and Gilly was so welcoming too. Set in a beautiful location, St Michael and All Angels is a lovely place in which to stay, relax and visit many interesting towns, villages and coastline. The countryside is right on your doorstep providing for many forest walks. Dartmoor and Exmoor are both within easy reach too. The property itself is outstanding and is a truly wonderful place to unwind and pamper yourself. It is both luxurious and comfortable and is a real 'home from home'. The garden is beautifully maintained and has seating areas all around. I would love to return there again and would happily recommend it to anyone seeking luxury and tranquility. I would also like to make a special mention on the perfect welcome hamper - thank you so much!"

    "We stayed at St. Michael & All Angels for 4 nights at the end of July and it is a truly stunning house. It is very clean and the attention to detail is noticeable. Don't worry if you forget to pack something, chances are you will find it somewhere in the house.Even our Dalmatian dog was pampered. There were treats, dog blankets and a luxurious dog bed in the living room.The garden has a raised patio area which is a suntrap on these long summer days. There are also many public footpaths locally to take lovely country walks.We would highly recommend this property for a grand house, beautiful country walks and great beaches within a 40 minute drive."

    "We decided to celebrate my 50th birthday here with family and we're glad we did. The chapel was everything and more we had hoped for. Would certainly come back."
    Georgina ‐ 27 Jan 2018
    "What a find. Can not believe such a place could be found in that area. Well done Gilly for your unique interior design.Would definitely not stay there again in the winter/rainy season. The immediate roads are appalling. However, we were there to celebrate a family birthday and there is nothing much you can do about the date being in January. As a family of 6 adults and a dog we really settled in and found the Church very comfortable, warm and relaxing. Lots of care and attention to detail had gone into the preparation for our stay. We felt we could ask any question and nothing would be too much trouble."
