Chain House

Chain House

Chain House is a delightful Grade 11 listed Georgian House located in the historic South Hams town of Modbury (the first town in the UK to go plastic bag free!)

Front View of Chain House

This delightful property has been in the same family since 1960 and has been extensively renovated during this time to incorporate a self contained annexe at the rear of the property. It is this 3 storey space that is open for rentals.

Back Garden

Accessed via its own front door, this Chain House extension is a wonderful space to kick back and enjoy all that Modbury and the stunning South Hams has to offer. The charm of this property is the way in which it has been lovingly restored but with the added benefits of 21st century essentials. It is a comfortable and easy space to live in that has retained all of its original character, features and architectural integrity.

Walled Garden

Enter via the front door and immediately in front of you is a wide staircase taking you to the first and second floor.

Main Stairs

But first, turn left and enter the lovely light kitchen furnished with a large wooden table to seat 8 comfortably.


Fitted out with a double range cooker and all the mod cons and cupboard space you need, this large space is the perfect hub for family and friends to gather.


One step down takes you into the large dual aspect living room with windows overlooking the rear garden.

Living Room

Furnished with ample seating and flat screen television this room is full of olde world charm.



The first floor houses 2 double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The bedroom at the end of the hallway has both a double bed and a single making this a great space for a family with young children.

Furnished with a Queen bed, single bed and chaise longue, this is a perfect space to relax and get away from it all!

Bedroom 1

Top Suite

There is also a large bathroom on this floor. 

Ensuite bathroom to bedroom 1

Please note that due to architectural constraints this bedroom is not accessed via a conventional door but has a heavy curtain at the bottom of its own staircase, separating it from the lower floor for privacy.

Top Room

TV, WiFi, Hairdryers, and Tea/Coffee making facilities are in all bedrooms.
Outside is a lovely large terrace with table and dining chairs. 

Back Garden

There is a Weber charcoal barbecue and a number of garden sun loungers to be found in the garden shed. Please note that this is a shared garden with the owners but they are very considerate and you will therefore only really share this space with their cat and dog! 


Please note that there is no private parking on site. There is street parking and a Pay and Display car park within a 2 minute walk.
The front part of the house is occasionally home to the owners but the two sections have locked doors between and your privacy is assured. The walls are so thick, it is really like being in a completely separate house.

Church Street, Modbury

The surrounding countryside is stunning, designated an area of outstanding natural beauty, and the views from the house open across the rooftops to meadows beyond. It is perfect for small family gatherings, or groups of friends to relax and explore the area.

Beautiful view 

Pets are welcome but they must be friendly as there are resident dogs and a cat sometimes on site!
