Pointed arched windows of 2 trefoil headed lights to each side of chancel, and to east and west ends. South porch has virtually semi-circular arched doorway with hollow-moulded surround with C19 timber gate. Plain ceiled barrel roof. Fine C15 timber inner doorway, ogee-headed with shallow hollow and ogee moulded surround in straight-headed similarly moulded surround. Original ledged door of 2 wide planks with strap hinges, old lock and handle. External wall monuments to south side of nave to Robert Hatch d. 1699 to left of porch (recorded as being inside the Church in 1844) and to right of porch to Grace Webber d.1801 and John Webber d.1823 by Manning and to William Melhuish Esq. d.1770.

Chancel. Nowy-headed commandment boards with moulded timber surrounds to each side of east window. C19 altar rails and small altar table. Patterned tiled floor. Nave. Principally C19 or early C20 nave seating with decorative carved bench ends, but some C16 carved bench ends survive towards west end on south side of nave. Tympanum over site of rood inscribed probably in early C19 with the Creed and Lords Prayer, the sides filled with scroll-work bearing verses. Hat-pegs survive at intervals on each side of nave and chancel. Probably early C18 pulpit with panelled faceted drum with wooden tester over with moulded cornice, and desk to north side incorporating turned candlestick. On north side of nave is a painted C18 cartouche with the opening 2 verses of Psalm 95. Painted Royal Arms of 1726 over south door. Perpendicular-style font, octagonal, with quatrefoil panels. Stained glass in east window to James Gould Esq and wife, both died 1857. Wall monument to chancel south side to Henry Byre Esq. d.1821 and wife, with heraldic crest in oval medallion to base. Satterleigh Church is remarkable for its diminutive scale, its bell-cote, and the richness of its interior fittings, including C15 ceilure, C16 bench ends, C18 pulpit, tester and tympanum and painted text and modest C19 restoration.
