Victoria Chapel is an absolutely beautiful home, recently renovated to the very highest standards. Light, airy and spacious (with huge high ceilings) yet so comfortable and welcoming for our December winter stay. The photos do not really do this home justice - no detail has been overlooked from the soft furnishings and toiletries to the equipment in the fabulous gourmet kitchen. Chris the owner was so thoughtful and helpful - I cannot rate our experience highly enough. When we finally dragged ourselves outside of the Chapel we found Topsham to be a delightful village with many welcoming pubs and restaurants plus lovely designer boutiques. We could have easily stayed much longer than our one week here and not tired of the area. We are definitely planning to return in the summer months to sample the local beaches and al fresco bars! So pleased we discovered Victoria Chapel. If you are considering this property I would say do not hesitate! ”
