The Old Chapel, previously a mid-19th century Methodist chapel, has been sympathetically converted to accentuate the original features whilst providing a comfortable and relaxing space. Offering a unique experience, The Old Chapel boasts grandeur with a delightful mix of old and new. The restored, original, arched chapel windows and the Scandinavian woodburner form the focal point of the spacious open-plan living area and reflect the chapel's history and illuminate the open plan ground floor, providing a bright and stylish environment. The mezzanine level offers another viewpoint of The Old Chapel where you can sit back and admire the inspired architecture or just relax, enjoy a book and gaze out through the Juliet balcony to the rolling countryside views.

Ideally situated for walking the coast path with close proximity to a range of amazing walks to explore the picturesque coastal scenery on the Penwith Peninsula and the surrounding towns and villages steeped in local history.  The owners of The Old Chapel are keen walkers themselves and have produced a guide to 12 fabulous walks for their guests to try.  

Take your pick of the outstanding beaches or enjoy a day walking some of the best stretches of the South West Coast Path in Cornwall. Or take a short drive to the unique coastal attractions of St Michael's Mount and The Minack Theatre. After a day of exploring relax and unwind in the pretty, enclosed courtyard, get the barbeque fired up and dine al fresco on your outside dining furniture. Sleeping six guests in three spacious bedrooms, The Old Chapel offers a unique space for a family or a group of friends to enjoy a Cornish getaway.

Rarely have we found such a good property so well equipped, very good cooker and fridge and the beds were very comfortable

Mrs C,

We had a great stay - the chapel is lovely, a great base for the week and really comfortable.

Mr W,

Very comfortable and well equipped. A beautiful conversion from Chapel to holiday home.

Mrs W,

The Old Chapel is the perfect home from home, with everything provided to make your stay comfortable! The space is really stylish with lots of homely touches as well as stunning period features. We loved the mezzanine and the big old chapel windows! Plus the luxurious deep bath and fairy lights - great for relaxing! The kitchen is excellently equipped for proper cooking and the wood burning stove was such a treat on the wintry evenings. The location is great too - we explored the nearby beaches and towns on the Penwith peninsula as well as driving a little bit further afield to the Lizard! Can recommend the nearby Newlyn Art Gallery, Aunty May’s for delicious pasties and Logan rock - we saw dolphins and seals there on our last evening! A fantastic stay - we will definitely be back!

Ms T,

We have had a fabulous time here at the Penwith Peninsula, with beautiful weather throughout. The Old Chapel has been an excellent base, from which we could explore all the various places (Porthcurno, St Just, Lizard Point, St Ives and many more). The house is very nice and comfortable and leaves nothing to be desired. We also loved the beaches, (Porthcurno, Sennen Cove and Kynance Cove. We hope to be back one day!

Previous Customer,

We enjoyed staying here; beautiful house!

Mr Cenk T,


Penzance is an historic port, well known for being the most westerly major town in Cornwall. The town has an abundance of palm trees and sub-tropical gardens located throughout, a sure sign that you have arrived somewhere truly special, made even more distinctive by the sight of St Michael's Mount out to sea.

Take a stroll along the town's streets and discover the characteristic pubs, top notch restaurants, antique shops, art galleries and more or have a wander along the promenade, grab some fish and chips and sit on the seafront. If you fancy something a bit different, enjoy one of the harbour boat trips, sea safaris or fishing excursions.

The fantastic beaches of Perranuthnoe, Lamorna Cove, Kenneggey Sands and Praa Sands are all located nearby.
