"My wife and I stayed at Frogwell Chapel for 7 nights in September, and what a wonderful little place it is, a real credit to the owners Julie and Alan. Comfortable and beautifully and tastefully appointed. Fantastic views from the decked bbq area, where you can watch the buzzards soaring overhead - magic! Highly recommended, and to top it all a lovely welcome pack. So many, many thanks to Julie and Alan, for a wonderful break!

"Fantastic premises. Building with great character, very clean and extremely well furnished and equipped. Great welcome pack including the "dog treats" Loved that premises were self contained within dog secure boundary fence and gated driveway parking. Direct access into field alongside for the dogs was an excellent feature to the property. Location is in a superb position for access to Dartmoor, Bodmin moor and coastlines to the North and South. We were very impressed with this property and will look to book again in the future."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-03-09
"My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights during a holiday in the UK and we both wished it was longer. Frogwell Chapel is delightful - thoughtfully converted with chapel architecture blending into the tasteful decor. The sofas and bed are wonderfully comfortable, the kitchen very well equipped and we both agreed we have never stayed in such a clean holiday home. Well done! The welcome pack on arrival was quite outstanding and the host was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2016-09-28
