We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The house was beautiful and spacious, very conveniently located and Louise could not have been more accommodating. The communication was excellent and she did everything she could to make our stay wonderful

Fantastic house and lovely garden. Louise has thought of everything you might need to feel at home. It was perfect: crisp white bedding, fluffy pillows, comfy beds, great size and layout of the rooms, delightful views from the top floor. Can't think of anything that could be improved, except maybe having a parking spot a bit nearer the house (not that it did us much harm walking a few dozen metres from the carpark, given the number of cream teas we ate during our stay). I've now decided I much prefer the area to North Devon, which is our usual holiday location. South Devon is great because of the river walks, as well as the beaches being less crowded. It's really a world-class spot. Best day out was a trip to Lydford Gorge where the kids swam in the river - such a beautiful place.

Thank you for choosing Chain House and I'm so pleased to know you all enjoyed it here so much. Your family were delightful guests Wendy, and we're so pleased you were able to maximise on getting out so much to enjoy much of what the South Hams has to offer. I really hope you do come again, it would be a pleasure to welcome you back here.

Chain House is an amazing place and Lou is a fantastic host. The house is perfectly placed in the town of Modbury with its collection of shops, pubs and cafes and so accessible to the many beautiful local attractions. The accommodation suited us perfectly as a family group of six. Plenty of room to eat and socialise together and also spaces to escape to to read, relax or have a bit of quiet time. The garden is stunning, immaculately cared for and full of personal touches like the 'war horse' metal sculpture and the carved wooden bench that nestles in a secluded sunny spot. We loved relaxing on the hammock and garden loungers at the end of the day in the evening sunshine with a glass of wine! All in all we had a wonderfully relaxing break in Chain House and would highly recommend it to others. Lou and Piers are such welcoming hosts and have prepared Chain House to give guests everything they could need, it really felt like we were coming 'home' each evening. Thank you!

We spent a week at Chain House and enjoyed every minute. The house is amazing and has absolutely everything you could possibly want. Louise and Piers were perfect hosts , welcoming and friendly. Modbury is a lovely little town with nice places to eat. We enjoyed the White Hart. Nearby Bigbury beach is great for the day. We parked at couple of minutes walk away in the village car park and bought a South Hams weekly pass for 40 pounds. Which we used all over the area all week. We would definitely recommend this property for a lovely holiday.

We were privileged to be the first people to stay here and we loved our stay at the Chain House - it felt like being at home! Such a lovely house and everything we could have asked for! Louise was a wonderful host - relaxed but exceptionally thoughtful! Thanks for making our stay so easy and enjoyable! Modbury is great place to stay in the beautiful rolling South Hams with a small supermarket, a deli, a butchers, a pharmacy - and 3 diverse but lovely pubs/eateries! The house has been restored beautifully with original fittings and all of the rooms are top notch - especially the homely, fully equipped, jumbo-sized kitchen/lounge! The house has wonderful views across the valley - watch out for morning mist in the valleys on a sunny morning! Beautiful!

Hi Rob, I Hope you can come again, and it goes without saying you would be incredibly welcome to return at any time. We really enjoyed meeting you all, and quite honestly Piers and I and, not forgetting the resident dogs and cat, felt we had the immense good fortune to have made some good new friends.
