Long weekend @ The Chapel

The silence around The Chapel, another Landmark Trust property, was absolute. Apart from the occasional sound of the trees rustling in the wind and the birds chirping, it was so quiet that it felt like we were in an airless vacuum.

The time seemed to stand still at Lettaford, Devon.

After our sojourn at Martello Tower last August, which turned out to be a huge success, we decided to have another long weekend at their property. ‘How about The Chapel? It looks so cute and cozy!’ Hubbie and I peered into his iMac and read the details.

A small granite building stood next to a small stream…

Landmark Trust aquired and restored the property in 1981. As the name suggests, the building used to be a chapel where the locals had their weekly congregation during 1860 to 1977…

The interior of the property was simple but had a lovely homely feel to it…

The room also contained a kitchenette…

A roomy bathroom. I was delighted because I hated a shoebox-size one…

Beds with comfortably firm mattresses…

However, Hubbie grumbled about the bed next morning. According to him, the bedpost was touching his calves all night long and it kept him from having a decent sleep. Oh dear, being 6’5″ tall doesn’t make his life very easy, does it?

Hubbie and I were so excited to show our Bella her very first countryside. It was a great shame that she wouldn’t be able to run freely because she was still recovering. However, all the smells and the sceneries of Dartmoor would be amazing for her. Let’s hope the weather will be kind to us, I prayed before I fell asleep…
