About Isabel Roberts
We came to Stoke Gabriel after 15 years in another nearby village. We fell in love with the river, the village community and this special corner of Devon. My husband and I live in the main bungalow that you drive past to get to the chalet. My husband works full time, I work 4 days a week. Our aim is to give you space and privacy but we are here if you need us.
Isabel Roberts purchased this Chalet in 2010
Why Isabel Roberts chose Stoke Gabriel
Over the years the chalet has served as a stable, a garage for classic cars and an office for the previous owner. It was in a sorry state when we bought the property and in 2016 we decided to completely rebuild it as guest accommodation. After the conversion the builders, the building inspector and several friends and relatives asked if they could move in. When not in use by guests we like to sit on the chalet patio ourselves and enjoy the peace and quiet and the beautiful views, particularly the sunsets.
What makes this Chalet unique
On summer evenings around 9pm if you sit still on the bench at the front of the chalet you may see the badger (known as Mr B) run up the field to the garden next door. Although it is idyllic in summer it is also a snug spot to curl up in the winter on the comfy sofas with a cup of fresh coffee. It is a perfect place to read a book or just look out the French windows at the cows in the fields in the distance.

Kirk’s bank holiday weekend
The chalet is absolutely fantastic, very well equipped and looks brand new, we felt like we were the first people to use it. We would very much recommend this accommodation and will definitely be going back again.
Lovely peaceful and relaxing holiday
An amazing little spot hidden away in the Devon hills. Thanks Isy for hosting us in your beautiful and immaculate chalet. The views are stunning and we were lucky with the weather and enjoyed sitting on the patio admiring the view! The chalet was spotless and had everything we needed.

The Chalet is the perfect place for peace, quiet, comfort and absolutely stunning views! It was also immaculately clean and well presented with every detail attended to. Isy is a wonderful host - warm, friendly and thoughtful. We only had four days at The Chalet - not nearly enough - but we would most definitely return for a longer spell - we didn't want to leave. Thank you Isy, we couldn't have asked for more!
