  • "A great location for coastal or woodland walks."

    The 2 ferries walk is definitely worth doing. Several gardens nearby - we enjoyed the Hidden Garden. Friendly, helpful host. The Old Chapel is an unusual & comfortable base.

  • "Beautiful place, very comfortable and clean."

    The owner was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We took our young dog but as there is no garden we had to take him along the main road at the front of the house to the side lane each time he needed to go out. There is a field across the road but the entrance is a bit overgrown so I didn’t use this. Overall a beautiful house, very spacious, comfortable with gorgeous views across the countryside. Would recommend for a relaxing stay especially with the log fire and jacuzzi bath!

  • "An absolutely lovely stay in a gorgeous setting."

    The chapel is spacious and well stocked with everything necessary to make happy holiday memories. The WiFi was a bit hit and miss, but that was fine for us as we were determined to keep off our phones. We also made an effort not to use our cars and Fowey became a regular haunt and enjoyed the coffee at Brown Sugar Cafe. The walk up the hill was a bit of a shock but after a week we soon got used to it. Loved our time at the chapel!!!!

  • "We arrived on a grey drizzling Friday evening to be met by Chris who welcomed us to the Old Chapel."

    First impressions were very favourable a stunning property in the heart of Cornwall. The weather improved on Saturday and for the rest of the week we enjoyed blue skies. Chris was extremely friendly and helpful during our stay and we enjoyed our chats with him when we got back from exploring Cornwall at the end of the day. The property was clean and comfortable the en-suites didn’t disappoint either the only complaint we had and it’s a minor one was whilst looking at the beautiful sunsets in the west it was hard to watch the television due to being dazzled by the sun. It would be difficult to put up some kind of blinds and to be honest the sunsets were a small price to pay ………………………………………………….……..Jon Janet and Stan

  • "We spent a lovely week in this very unique property that had everything you could need, the only reason we gave it a nine instead of a ten was because there was no outside space to sit."

    We did have great evenings round the very sociable table upstairs playing games, thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home x

  • "A wonderful place to spend ones holiday, the chapel had everything we needed and more."

    The owner was so friendly and helpful and even lit a log fire for us before we arrived. He was always on hand if we needed anything, but we didn't have to contact him at all. Thank you to the owner for allowing us to stay at the old chapel and making it such a great holiday.

  • "We had a lovely week at the old chapel ."

    The owner was very helpful . Well equipped and a unique place to stay , the views from the lounge were wonderful. If I had One suggestion get rid of the rug in lounge as it is a trip hazard and not needed as beautiful carpet there already .

The property

Fowey 2.6 miles via the Bodinnick Ferry.

This converted chapel is a unique retreat based in the small town of Lanteglos, close to Fowey and in the heart of what is considered Du Maurier Country on the South Coast of Cornwall.

Hosting three bedrooms, The Old Chapel welcomes families and friends seeking a rural getaway with easy access to the attractions of South Cornwall.

Relax in the sitting room with the large gothic style windows providing superb rural views, or make use of the wall-mounted TV for a family movie night.

The kitchen/diner can be found in a mezzanine area just above the sitting room, complete with a selection of appliances and a dining table for all to gather round.

Each of the bedrooms are thoughtfully furnished to provide comfortable sleeping areas, with a choice of two doubles, one with a convenient en-suite shower room, or the twin room which is perfect for the little ones.

There is also an attractive bathroom which features an alluring Jacuzzi bath, so you can enjoy a soothing soak to help recover from a day of rambling the outdoors.

Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy exploring Cardinham Woods, offering excellent walking opportunities deep into the woods and an activity trail for the younger ones.

Head into the town of Fowey and you will have plenty to see and do – visit the aquarium, museum and St Catherine’s Castle, or explore a host of gardens and stately homes, offering something for everyone.

Sandy beaches await at Readymoney Cove to the south or Polkerris and Par Sands are firm favourites.

The picturesque Lerryn with it's pub, stepping stones and picnic area is a worthy visit.

The Old Chapel is a lovely base with plenty to occupy your time.

About the location


Lostwithiel 8 miles; Polperro 8 miles

This small town and civil parish lies at the mouth of the River Fowey in south Cornwall. The estuary of the River Fowey forms a natural harbour, which enabled the town to become an important trading centre. There is a wealth of things to see and do in and around the harbour. Whether you enjoy getting out on the water, playing golf or finding out more about the history of the area, you are sure to find something to suit the whole family. Harbour cruises leave the Town Quay regularly in season giving you a superb view of the town, but for the more adventurous, rent your own self-drive boat, kayak or paddle board and explore the waters for yourselves! The town is steeped in history, so why not join a guided tour of either Fowey or Polruan? You can even join an owl experience, play golf, go horse riding or pursue your artistic talents with pottery or painting courses. There is the aquarium, museum and St Catherine's Castle, as well as Readymoney Cove, all waiting to be explored. If you get peckish, or fancy something thirst quenching along the way, there is a plethora of pubs, inns, cafes and restaurants to choose. Whenever you plan to visit, keep a look out for the festivals, fairs, markets and theatre performances on throughout the year. There are many family attractions in the area, including Mevagissey and Charlestown harbours, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Discover them all from this fantastic base!
