    • “We stayed here end of May beginning of June, i meant to review earlier but things been a bit hectic with wedding plans lol. Anyway holiday at Chapel Green was fabulous, owners were so friendly but not over bearing. Cottage was comfortable and had everything we needed, especially the conservatory which was a wonderful place to sit and eat breakfast, lunch or just to relax in the evenings. It is near enough to tourist sites to not have to drive too far, but is also away from all the hustle and bustle so great to relax. We took our jack russell terrier and she soon settled after exploring the garden and then choosing her seat also in the conservatory lol. Access to shop and pub is a bit of a walk back to cottage but food in pub is worth the climb.”

    • “Chapel Green was a great place to stay at and as a base to visit the local small towns and harbours. The gym was a favourite with the older children and teenagers, as was the wi-fi connection. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. A welcome surprise were the wine, orange juice and milk in the fridge on arrival. We also made use of the gas barbecue a few evenings.”

    • “Upon arrival we were greeted by the owners of the cottage, lovely people, they gave us a guided tour of the premises and left in the kitchen was a bottle of wine and chocolates, a lovely thought. The house was very comfortable, spacious, home from home, ideal for a large family, pets are welcomed with open arms. Linen provided in abundance, conservatory overlooks wonder views of the forest like setting, lots of ground to the property, all round a fabulous place for a holiday. The location is great as a starting place to explore Cornwall, if you don't mind walking, there is a nice walk down to the village shops, pub which serves very good food, supermarkets are but a short ride away. Restaurants, places to visit are easily reached from here, great as a base. The house is full of games for children, if you are a book worm, there are loads of books to read. The kitchen is well equipment, AGa stove takes a little getting use to if not used before, there is also a convensional cooker in the utility room, you couldn't want for anything else. The whole holiday was fantastic, the only minor dislike about the property is that the kitchen is a little on the dark side if the sun is shining into the conservatory, other than that there is nothing to be found fault with this property what so every, plus it is being extended to cater for even bigger families. Ground floor facilities would be ideal for someone who has difficulty with negotiating stairs, albeit not steep stairs, very slight climb. It also holds a small gym upstairs for those who are fitness freaks and miss their daily workout. You wouldn't wish for more.”

    Dr Paterson, King's Lynn, November 2015

    • “Wonderful location, with very helpful owners, cottage was a delight to stay at.”

    Mr New, Gloucester, October 2015

    • “This property is the best one that I have ever stayed in. I have stayed in many different places over the years, and can honestly say that this is true. It is really and truly beautiful. It was clean, spacious and beautifully furnished with lovely surroundings and plenty of parking. Everything was perfect. A big thank you to the owners who made us so welcome and were so friendly on our arrival.”

    Mrs Mcguiness, London, September 2015

    • “Lovely holiday. The owners are so friendly and very kind; we would recommend this cottage to anyone.”

    Mr Oborne, Lincoln, August 2015

    • “The house and grounds were fantastic with loads of space and it was very relaxing. The owners were very warm and friendly.”

    Ms Blane, Leighton Buzzard, July 2015

    • “Lovely large house, everyone enjoyed their stay. The owners live nearby and are very friendly and helpful. A great location for exploring Cornwall.”

    Mrs Cleveland, Epsom, June 2015

    • “"We were given a lovely welcome; a home from home atmosphere. There was plenty of room for a big family group. The owner was flexible and very helpful. The house was warm and had everything we needed for our weekend away."”

    Mrs Freeman, Exeter, March 2015

    • “There aren't enough words of praise for this particular property, it's location or the owners. We were greeted by the owners, shown around and made to feel extremely welcome and comfortable. The property itself is vast and the photographs really do not do its cosy yet spacious feel justice. Being in such a secluded and beautiful spot was such a treat and made it easier to relax, yet at the same time we were central to all the sights Cornwall has to offer. As soon as we arrived, we knew it would be tough to leave - even the dog was sorry to say goodbye, and we can't wait to book this exact property again for all these reasons and more.”

    Ms Counsell, Bristol, February 2015

    • “Lovely cottage with period features and a great big lounge area which was important for us as a big group. Open views from the conservatory.”

    Mr Jain, Twickenham, December 2014

    • “The house had everything you needed. The lounge is very cosy as well as the conservatory. The local pub you will find extremely friendly, everyone makes you feel welcome. The local beaches are good as is the local shop.”

    Mrs Arberry, Bristol, November 2014

    • “The house is beautifully spacious, with plenty of room for our party of 10. A lovely conservatory where the adults could hang out while the children were rampaging in the sitting room/gym - when we were not sitting in the garden. The owners, who live on site, are absolutely lovely, very helpful but not intrusive and very laid back. The kitchen is extremely well equipped - more than enough of everything. The Aga was very popular. A convenient location for lots of lovely beaches and easy access to other parts of Cornwall. We had a great holiday.”

    Mrs Broadway, London, July 2014

    • “Lovely holiday, brilliant cottage. Owners welcoming and very friendly. Really did not want to come back home!”

About the location


Mevagissey 5 miles; St. Mawes 18 miles; Truro 14 miles.

With its history rooted firmly in tin mining, the village of Polgooth is now a quiet settlement on the outskirts of St Austell, frequented by visitors enjoying the area's outstanding countryside. Just 3 miles from the sea, the village is close to several lovely beaches, and the south-west coastal path also runs close by. The area has a host of visitor attractions, with the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Tall Ships Harbour at Charlestown all within a 15 minute drive. The quaint fishing harbour at Mevagissey, with its passenger ferry across the bay to Fowey, is just 5 miles away, and the beautiful Roseland Peninsula with the villages of St. Mawes and St. Just-in-Roseland lies just a little further. Enjoy a coastal walk and take in the wonderful views, spend a day on the beach, or visit one of the numerous attractions close by. A fantastic location, any time of the year.
