Deep in the countryside but just a few miles from fabulous Padstow, this former Methodist chapel dating from 1830 is a perfect escape, whether you're a couple or a family with children. Step through the sky blue doors and you'll be transfixed by the stunning, airy space flecked by the jewel-coloured light from the stained glass windows. Open plan living makes the most of the vaulted ceilings, whilst carefully chosen furniture and fab kitchen compliment rather than clash with the original features.
Living and Eating
With one huge space filling the whole of the chapel, Seraphina is very much open plan. Walk through the doors and you’ll find yourself in a gorgeous porch with stylish lighting and beautiful original features such as the lovely wooden pew, perfect for tucking your wellies underneath after a bracing country walk.
Once through the porch you’ll find yourself in the breathtaking main living area. Directly in front of you is the huge kitchen island with granite work surface and in-built Smeg twin ovens, induction hob and boiling water tap – perfect for rustling up a feast. The kitchen lies to the right of the front door as you walk in and is fully equipped with everything you need including a jet black Smeg retro fridge freezer. In front of the island is a huge wooden dining table with comfy leather chairs and bench – perfect for a romantic meal for two or a bustling family dinner.
Leading on from this towards the back of the chapel are two gorgeous sofas and a massive flat screen TV – ideal for cosy nights in when all you want to do is curl up and watch a favourite film. Sky Q, an XBox and DVD player are also available for when you need to hunker down for the day. The overall feeling is lightness in this room – the light blues and whites match perfectly, and the finishing touches such as the beautiful wrought iron radiator, fab lighting and original features blend together perfectly to create a harmonious space.
A wrought iron spiral staircase leads up to the mezzanine level where you’ll discover the gorgeous master bedroom with en suite. White painted floorboards lead to the gorgeous king sized bed with dove grey velvet headboard – so comfortable you’ll think your sleeping on clouds – whilst rising above you the impressive vaulted ceiling with exposed beams is home to another television – ideal for lazy mornings or late night films. The pièce de résistance is the fab freestanding bathtub for two which overlooks the chapel below.
A second bedroom lies downstairs to the back and is a perfect den for adults and little ones. A custom made double bed with bunk over are tucked away with an industrial style ladder leading to the upper bed. There’s a pretty original fireplace and tiny stained glass windows, plus a television for favourite films.
The master en suite is home to a loo and sink whilst you have of course the delicious bath tub for two. Downstairs there’s a shower room with huge walk in shower – perfect for washing the sand away after a day on the beach.
There’s a small enclosed courtyard to the side of Seraphina that overlooks the babbling stream that runs past the retreat. This is a perfect spot for a morning coffee and for watching the world go by.
Seraphina is fully WiFi ready so if you need to get in touch with the outside world you can.
Seraphina will accept one well behaved dog. We charge £30 per dog per week or short break.
