  • "Despite being ill, we had the most wonderful stay."

    The property is beautiful, we left with home envy and Elvis certainly didn’t want to leave. Your hospitality is second to none and I will be recommending Chapel Green to anyone looking for a stay in Cornwall.

  • "It was a lovely setting and the owners were most helpful and friendly."

    We all enjoyed the house and there was enough room for 6 adults 2 kids and a toddler. Plus 2 dogs. It was great to have a kitchen and a utility area it was most useful. Lots of kitchen ware to use. Could not fault it. The indoor swimming pool was good for both adults and children. In a lovely part of Cornwall and the village pub was excellent.

  • "We stayed as a family of 5 and with our two border collies at the opening up of this lovely Accomodation after lockdown."

    We were impressed that the swimming pool was operational, that chocolates for my wife’s birthday and a bottle of bubbly with eggs, milk, sugar were left for us to use which was a nice and an unexpected surprise. There are plenty of facilities including an Arga which was always helping us feel warm. The weather in the area after 9pm was cold but warm inside with both the central heating and lovely fire place in the main living room keeping us warm. We played board games every evening after eating out all so enjoyable and watching Sky Sports. We only needed to use 3 of the 5 bedrooms. Good location, within easy reach of beaches, many great towns, villages and shops. The owners should feel proud of this property, the facilities and the quality of this wonderful place. We would love to come back when we get the chance. Thank you from all of us and our two happy border collies. Best Wishes Paul and Barbara
