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.

Chapel 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


Excellent getaway house. Beautiful chapel interior and exterior architecture. Very comfortable space inside. 2 big double bedrooms with a small bathroom inside each, 1 bunkbed room (with 2 bunkbeds), 1 smaller double bed room with 2 small windows on the top level (but no bathroom there, so will need to use one of the others). Great kitchen and dining table with good kitchen equipment. Separate room at the back with a pool table. There is a great front garden and deck (however this opens up to the road with no enclosure/fence - relevant for kids/pets). About a 10 minute drive to Wadebridge where there is a LIDL for groceries and Port Isaac. It was a lovely stay!

Previous Customer,


The pretty fishing village of Port Isaac is located along a stretch of coastline that runs from Pentire Point (just north of Polzeath), to Widemouth Bay, near Bude, and is one of many Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Cornwall. The port is surrounded by several other villages including Port Gaverne, Port Quin, St Minver, St Kew and the charmingly-named Chapel Amble. It is well-supplied with places to eat, including The Golden Lion pub, The Mote fish restaurant, and Outlaw's Fish Kitchen, run by Nathan Outlaw (who also has another restaurant in nearby Rock). The surrounding area is also well provided with traditional country pubs serving an excellent variety of food, including The Maltsters at Chapel Amble, The Red Lion Inn at St Kew Highway, and the St Kew Inn. Being close to the sea means you are also within easy reach of many maritime pursuits such as sailing and fishing, and can participate in a wide variety of water-sports including surfing at nearby Polzeath beach, kayaking, stand-up paddle-boarding, and coasteering. If you prefer a more peaceful, laid-back holiday, you can always sit in a tea room and admire the spectacular scenery, or indulge in a spot of wildlife watching.
