The Old Chapel is positioned upon a leafy quiet lane close to the centre of the charming village of Slapton which is a few minutes from one of the South Hams’ most well known stretches of coastline at Slapton Sands. This former Methodist chapel, dating back to the 1860s, has recently undergone complete refurbishment and now offers light, bright and welcoming holiday accommodation, and it boasts two highly sought after amenities being private parking and a sunny enclosed garden – both of which are rarity in the village. The property’s open plan living area and modern facilities will appeal to both families and couples alike. The village, which has a rich history and is surrounded by unspoilt countryside, has much to offer including a well stocked village shop and two locally renowned pubs. A short walk leads to Slapton Sands and the South West’s largest freshwater lake at the nature reserve at Slapton Ley. The Old Chapel provides a relaxing base from which to enjoy the delights of the village and the South Hams.

We had a lovely time, its a great holiday location with everything you could possibly need and great to have parking outside,
Excellent location Great fully equipped kitchen Lovely enclosed garden Clean property Good parking space Wi-Fi connection ok The turquoise colour scheme in The house worked well. Enough room to hang clothes in the main bedroom.
The cottage could not be faulted apart from the double bed
We had a lovely stay, regular visitors to Slapton every year. The old Chapel is comfortable and ideal for our needs together with our small dog Sam. Love the village everyone really friendly. Highly recommend the The Queens Arms in Slapton, excellent food and drink together with Sandra, Kevin and their team.
Usual Toad Hall high standard cottage. Pretty village. Both pubs in village good - Lovely garden at Queens Arms. Useful well stocked village shop. Lovely beaches at South Milton and Bigbury.
Fantastic property for a couple and dog. Will be booking for 2019
We enjoyed a wonderful short break at the Old Chapel which we found to be very well equipped and lived up to expectations. We would have no hesitation to book this property again if we were to return to Slapton. Thank you.
Lovely and quiet, high standard of decoration. Would really have appreciated a hair dryer and possibly a clothes horse which might reduce use of dryer time from owners point of view . Didn't upset me but there was hair in the bath plug which might detract for some people.
Thank you for your feedback, this will be forwarded to the owner and we are sorry for the cleaners' minor oversight with the bath plug. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay at this great property and we hope to see you back soon. Many Thanks The Toad Hall Team

The Old Chapel in Slapton was our ideal holiday home this year in the picturesque and beautiful village of Slapton close to all amenities and local attractions. The property was well equipped for our 2 week stay and brilliantly looked after and clean on arrival. The garden was also well looked after, it would however have been useful for further information on the garden as we thought it was not completely enclosed for our small terrier as she could easily get under some of the fencing (where it meets the wall) and escape, so sadly we had to keep her on a lead in the garden. Otherwise it was a brilliant holiday home in a lovely location and I would not hesitate in recommending it to my family and friends and I hope to be able to visit again in future.
<p>Thank you for your helpful comments and the website now states that small unattended dogs might be able to escape. Glad you had a great holiday and we hope to see you again very soon. The Toad Hall team.</p>
