  • "The chapel was gorgeous and secluded, this is the 2nd time I have booked with Sykes Cottages and will continue to do so with them."

    We had a fantastic time, our little dog came with us she loved it, there were 3 paddocks for her to run around in. The beaches were beautiful and the weather was kind to us with a couple of really hot days.

    Great to hear you had a fantastic stay at Trevenning Chapel and enjoyed visiting the wonderful local area. Property Owner

  • "We had a delightful stay in the chapel."

    It was lovely. Very comfortable, warm and spotlessly clean. Everything we needed was there for a wonderful weeks holiday in Cornwall. We stayed in March and the weather was not bad, it was warm, cloudy and we only had a little drizzle a couple of days so we were lucky. The bottle of Prosecco was a lovely touch and very welcome after a long drive. There is a small issue with damp at the base of the back wall of the toilet. Due to the height of the ground being a little too high I would imagine but it certainly did not effect our stay. I would highly recommend the Chapel as a lovely base to explore north Cornwall. I would think the summer months are wonderful there.

    Many thanks for your kind comments I am very glad the weather did not affect your plans for the week. Property Owner

  • "The Chapel is in a beautiful rural setting with excellent access to exercise paddocks for our dog."

    The Chapel is small. Our weather was extremely wet and there was limited space for drying outdoor gear and dog towels etc. However, it is comfortable and cosy. Just one issue with limited hot water. Our query with the owner was immediately responded to.

  • "Lovely property, my husband and I have just spent two weeks there."

    The owner was very friendly and helpful and there was a welcome bottle of wine when we got there as well as fresh milk and tea/ coffee sachets. Very handy for visiting Port Isaac,Padstow, Eden Project etc. If I could change one thing it would be to have a small wardrobe. Failing that ( space was well used and it would be awkward to place one),then a second white stand with hangers would be helpful. There was plenty of drawer space though. I would absolutely recommend Trevenning Chapel.

    Only addition I would make would be a welcome pack with milk as the local shop is two miles away and has limited opening times. Clothes washing pods would also be an added bonus.

    We had family staying in port isaac an had requested alternative accomadation in port isaac but was yourselves after only 10 minutes of the initial booking.We only stayed 1 night there and had to find somewhere in port isaac to be with family .so we paid £880 for 1 night which is disgusting and think your customer care is a disgrace so ended up paying twice for the same holiday thanks to you

  • "Beautiful chapel conversion in beautiful surroundings."

    The location isn’t exactly in Port Issac which is a few miles away. Perfect if you want to get away from it all, very peaceful. Spotlessly clean however the property did have a damp musty smell about it. Our host was very nice and the complimentary Prosecco was a nice touch.

  • "A lovely little converted chapel."

    Stunning views. Perfect for our dog with no hassle as there was so much space for her right from the doorstep. Very very secluded and private even with the owners across the way and another larger rental property next door. I think if I had to find any fault, and it would be nit picking it would be that having driven all the way from Wiltshire and not being able to check in until 4 in the evening, a small carton of milk in the fridge would have been welcome for a cuppa until we unpacked and found the supermarket. Regardless, a fabulous stay, thank you!

    Peaceful location and loved the small courtyard complete with birds and squirrels where we could enjoy our breakfast outside. The Chapel has everything you need and is very clean. Fantastic central location to visit the beautiful beaches and sites from Port Issac in the North (where we got mixed up with the filming of Doc Martin) to Polperro in the South and also went down to St Michaels Mount and Mousehole for a day. We would certainly love to come back again.

  • "We loved this place so much."

    It's close proximity to Bodmin moor, the Camel trail an major roads to go to either coast was wonderful. The cottage has everything you need and was very comfortable. I feel like theres nothing else to say on the cottage as it really was perfect for us! Just note that the courtyard attached isn't enclosed, but there was (when we were there) some small paddocks that allowed us to let out dog off the lead safely for a great run around. The walk to the nearest pub is 1.7miles with some proper Cornish hills thrown in- but is well worth it. We found very little traffic, and felt safe walking as long as we were mindful it was a road! Camelford is the nearest village for a larger coop I think, we found it very easy to find and get too and it had parking next to the shop. We can also highly recommend the Snail cafe at the start of the Camel trail for snacks, icecream and bacon sandwiches! Thank you to the lovely owners of Trevenning Chapel, we have had a really wonderful time

  • "As a company I have used you a couple of times and will continue to do so but on this occasion the description of the chapel was a little misleading."

    ‘Private and enclosed ‘ garden was in the description and neither were. For us this cottage however nice inside the surroundings were not as private as we would have hoped for. The interior and furnishings were lovely just not private enough for us.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Trevenning Chapel. In the description of the property it does specify private garden in the back but shared garden in the front. The grounds of the property are specified being shared as well but only with the owners and Trevenning Barn Property Owner

    Very cosy & surprisingly spacious, lovely comfy bed .The cottage is not too far away from anywhere really. We took our bikes & the owners kindly let us store them in their car port. Had a couple of bike rides direct from the cottage,once to Port Isaac and then across Bodmin Moor to Blisland. The cottage is not too far away from the Camel Trail either for anyone wishing to do use that trail.Walks as well from the cottage,so we didn't use our car much once we got there, except a couple of times in the evening when we ate out., and one day when we took a trip to Polzeath and walked to Rock and back a lovely walk well worth doing.

About the location


Lostwithiel 6 miles; St. Austell 13 miles; Padstow 16 miles; Newquay 21 miles.

Bodmin, the one-time County Town of Cornwall with its narrow streets, shops and pubs, is perfectly placed for exploring all that this fabulous holiday area has to offer. The outstanding surf, rugged cliffs and hidden coves of the north coast beaches and the quieter sands and river estuaries of the south coast are both 15 miles away while on the edge of town is the fascinating museum and haunting presence of the old Bodmin Jail. The popular Camel Trail for cyclists and walkers also winds its way through the town on its journey to the sea at Padstow. Close by are the open spaces and wind swept grandeur of Bodmin Moor while the incomparable Eden Project (11 miles), Falmouth’s National Maritime Museum (30 miles) and the beautiful harbour town of Padstow with its famous pubs and restaurants (16 miles) make for great days out. Also within easy reach and ideal for a fun-filled day out, guests can visit Lanhydrock House, the small town of Fowey and Charlestown with its Tall Ships, The Eden Project and Lostwithiel. There is a good choice of country pubs and restaurants in the surrounding area.

Note: Babies welcome, regretfully no children over the age of two years.

Note: Dogs are to be kept on a lead when outside of the property and on lawned areas, there is a paddock available for off lead exercise.
