If you have a desire for sweeping coastline views, top notch furnishings, comfortable beds, beautiful linens and fabulous bathrooms, then The Chapel is for you! If you dream about enjoying a magical sunset surrounded by your friends and family around a large outdoor dining table cooking fresh local fish and lobster enjoying views out across the garden to the sea beyond - then yes, you have found your perfect holiday destination in beautiful Cornwall.
The first floor open plan living-room is an amazing space, with enormous windows, huge Stuv log burner and vaulted ceiling; it's a complete joy, offering the most stunning views. The fabulous kitchen with every appliance to hand, sits at the other end of this space. Star gaze, storm watch, read or just relax and have a petit dodo (little sleep) in the separate sunroom with wood burner; both provide a great ambience in the evening to ensure you and your guests are cosy and warm whilst relaxing on the lush sofas.
Even if you are a keen cook or wish to have the wonderful Cornish chef Benedict Quinn entertain you (which we can arrange), the kitchen will be ideal for preparing any gastronomic delight. Port Isaac is just down the road so you can go and buy some crab, lobster or fresh fish and return to The Chapel and barbeque to the delights of your guests or use the range cooker for boiling, grilling or oven baking your purchased morsels.
On the ground floor there are three double bedrooms (two with en suite, one with private sun terrace) and one room with bunk beds. All are beautifully styled with Sweet Pea and Willow beds, Hypnos mattresses and maximum thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and duck down pillows. The third double bedroom and bunk bed room share a stunning bathroom, complete with separate shower.
There are three bathrooms; the two en suites and the family bathroom are fitted with underfloor heating and the finest of fixtures and the drench shower, deep bath and copious amounts of hot water will ensure everyone is dressed for dinner on time. Frette bath towels and Laura Ashley beach towels are provided.
With 1.5 acres of private gardens with stunning views and surrounded by beautiful Cornish countryside you will really be pushed to stray from this lovely garden. With evenings spent using the outdoor dining area with barbecue, plancha, pig roaster, outdoor oven and outdoor log stove, why would you want to stray very far!
