Close to the picturesque fishing harbour at Mevagissey and the wonders of Heligan Gardens, this utterly delightful semi-detached chapel conversion is a wonderful example of thoughtful and skilled craftmanship. Attention to detail is evident at every turn, all topped off by superb quality fittings and furnishings offering every comfort you could wish.
The impressive living space on the ground floor, filled with light from soaring arched windows, accesses an inner hallway with a big family bathroom and thickly-carpeted stairs which lead up to the en suite master bedroom and twin bedroom above.
A paved courtyard outside is sheltered by high fences and provides the ideal place for a morning coffee or evening meal on warm summer days. Set on the edge of a small village and with beaches, fishing harbours and coastal footpaths just a couple of miles away, this is the perfect holiday location.
This gorgeous Victorian Wesleyan chapel has been converted with the utmost care, from the beautifully precise pointing on the sandy stone walls outside to the lime plaster on the walls inside. Original features are cleverly incorporated into luxurious 21st Century living, so the wooden-walled vestry becomes the entrance porch, the soaring ceiling in the living-room gives a wonderfully spacious feel and toasty warm under-floor heating keeps the temperature just-so. Intricately carved wooden screens and wrought iron balustrading frame the raised dining-area and the preaching balcony above looks down to the sitting-area. Comfort is guaranteed with heated towel rails, a double-ended stand-alone bath, wonderful bed linens and deep pile rugs. There are inspired shots of gloriously bright colour in the soft furnishings, adding a vibrant and contemporary touch.
With private parking and a sheltered courtyard, everything is set for a wonderful holiday. If you can drag yourselves away, the popular Polgooth Inn is less than half a mile away and offers a warm welcome and good food, and there are several other renowned village pubs within a couple of miles. Gardeners will love exploring Cornish gardens at Heligan, Trewithen, Tregrehan and the grounds at Caerhays Castle, with the famous Eden Project most definitely not to be missed. Fishing trips from Mevagissey and kayak hire from Pentewan are all on hand, with the shops and restaurants in the small Cathedral City of Truro just a half-hour drive away.
