Back in 1821, few would have imagined this former chapel’s future as a well dressed haven for holidaymakers. Crisp with character and a heavenly provision of furnishings, we love how modern minimalism mixes with rustic chic.
Welcome to your secret corner of Cornwall. Serenity greets you from the road. Follow one of the two driveways as the gardens sweep around you. Then, right there, in the middle of it all, St Docwin. Once an early 19th century chapel, its aesthetically beautiful conversion is sympathetic to the original structure and materials as well as to modern design trends and comforts.
The sitting room is a perfect mash of painted brick, pitched ceiling, Scandi style woodburner and crushed velvet sofas. A classy yet rustic chic vibe moves beautifully through the rest of the house. The slate floors ground you. Solid wood bedsteads promise a sound night’s sleep. Floor to ceiling windows create a bright space and beautiful views of lush mature gardens you won’t want to leave. The kitchen-diner continues the character with its exposed brick wall and dining table with benches one might imagine harking back to days of Sunday school.
Up in the rafters, a snug provides a TV, games and giant bean bags for downtime or playtime. Then downstairs a games room with a woodburner and pool table awaits to keep all ages entertained. This room has fabulous tri-fold doors opening onto a barbecue area with chiminea and the sloping lawn beyond that any dogs will love racing up and down. Around the front of the house a peaceful decked area with comfy rattan sofas is the perfect spot for digesting the morning papers over a fresh pot of coffee. Eco credentials include solar panels and a ground source heat pump. Should you wish to wander, a 10 minute walk steers you to the award winning St Kew Inn or a drive of the same length will lead you to the typically pretty fishing village of Port Isaac.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
Four beautifully laid out bedrooms welcome you. The slate flooring continues in the double room with en suite on the lower ground floor and in the bunk room with additional full size single on the ground floor. The full height windows of the double on the mezzanine level will lure you bed early and there’s another double on the first floor

What can we say- a fabulous location, peaceful and relaxing! We all want to move in immediately. We loved; meals outside on the terrace with honeysuckle wafting over us, boys playing pool, barbecuing freshly caught mackerel, chilling on the sofas and hidden delights. We will be back!Mr K - 31st January 2015
