The property

Forming part of a converted chapel, the other half being occupied by the owner, Chapel House offers unique and charming accommodation on one level.

Its countryside position on the edge of the hamlet of Porth Kea makes this an ideal retreat for a couple, with the bars, restaurants and shops of the vibrant cathedral city of Truro on the doorstep just 2 miles.

For families it makes for a quiet and relaxing holiday with creekside walks and beaches close by.

Chapel House boasts a characterful and interesting interior with high arched windows framing the picture perfect countryside image beyond.

The living room is a light and spacious room open plan with a comfortable seating area, dining area and kitchen to the side.

The bedrooms, double and twin rooms are pretty and bijou and are separated from the main room by beautiful oak panelling that can be partially folded to create an even further open plan layout.

There is a splendid, fully tiled bathroom with double ended bath that gives a touch of decadence.

Outside there is a small patio garden for your private use that looks across the farmland and fields beyond and at the end of the drive, a short walk through the owner’s field is a lovely spot for a picnic or barbecue.

Porth Kea is an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Within half a mile Combe Creek and the inlets of the Truro and Falmouth rivers can be explored.

Enjoy a stroll to the King Harry Ferry where you can hop aboard across the water to the breathtakingly beautiful Roseland Peninsula or visit the National Trust Trelissick Gardens.

The vibrant harbour town of Falmouth can be reached in 15 minutes, its streets lined with shops, cafes and restaurants.

Further along the beaches of Swanpool and Maenporth where kayaks and paddleboards can be hired for exploring the coast on water.
