The Old Chapel
The Old Chapel brings comfort and luxury together in this well-appointed cottage for six guests. Perfect for romantic getaways and exploring Exmoor with family.
This delightful cottage is in the centre of the attractive and unspoilt village of Withypool in the heart of the Exmoor National Park. Sympathetically converted from an original chapel the cottage is furnished to a high standard throughout whilst retaining some original character and including individual pieces of furniture that acknowledge the history of the building. The Old Chapel is in a slightly elevated position which allows wonderful views over the valley of the River Barle as well as views of the Exmoor countryside. Withypool benefits from a post office and village store, tea rooms and a character 17th Century country inn with a unique and storied history. The surrounding countryside is ideal for walkers with many beautiful walks that can be enjoyed directly from the village.
