Fantastic as always

By Lynn Watts on 28-Jul-2019

Just had our 5th stay at this fantastic cottage.

Love coming here it really is home from home. Beautiful,location, spacious, clean and the most comfortable beds.

Rachel and Simon the owners are always a pleasure to deal with, and also provide a great welcome pack.

We were very lucky with the weather and will miss our daily walk in to St Ives, especially the long way via Carbis Bay.

Sadly cannot return next year due to graduation taking place, will be back in 2021 to continue making wonderful memories here.

Thank you for everything.

Fantastic stay

By Via Tripadvisor on 23-Apr-2019

What a fantastic cottage, Rachel has literally thought of everything to cater for a family. The house is huge and so comfy. The garden is gorgeous. Unfortunately we had limited sunshine but what we did have was glorious, a perfect space to enjoy the sun.
The facilities that you are allowed to use include use of the adjoining caravan site which has a pub, pool (outdoor) outdoor and indoor children’s play areas a small shop, a spa and a direct walkway to get to the path to walk down into st ives, oh and a bus to st ives.
Locally is a great little pub and lots of walks (and geocaches for those that fancy it)
All in all a fantastic break for me, my husband, our 1 year old and our pooch.
Will definitely return.

Beautiful Location

By Via Holiday Lettings on 26-Aug-2018

We had an amazing time in this beautiful cottage. Wonderful location a bus straight to St Ives from the touring park, lovely owners who took our shopping in on arrival when we were delayed on arrival. The camp site has activites which you are free to enjoy. Would I book again? In a heartbeat. The cottage is immaculate beds are comfortable the whole house is pristine clean and very roomy.

Return Guests

By Steve Plant on 13-Jun-2018

This our 3rd stay at the Old Chapel, which says it all really. We still have a few days left but I thought I would provide some feedback for prospective visitors now. The house is always clean and well decorated. There are nice touches, like a coffee machine and pods along with some other “essentials”. The house has a lovely feel, I’ve experinced this more this week, because unfortunately I broke my leg on day 2 of our holiday, The information pack gave us everything we needed in terms of getting treatment. Whilst we love the hustle and bustle of St Ives, we love staying in Halsetown, which has good access on foot (sadly not for me this time), bus, or taxi. A1 cars do a fixed price deal to Polmanter for £5.50 ATM. The Halsetown Inn and Polmanter Stable Bar offer decent food on the doorstep. Parking is easy at the Old Chapel, which is not the case with much of the property in St Ives, where a house of this size and quality would cost more. In short it gives us everything we need.

Excellent Stay

By Via Tripadvisor on 30-Mar-2018

Easy to find and a lovely property. Clearly nearly refurbed and done to a good spec. The property was spacious and very well equipped. We had an an suite each with one room having it's own external bathroom with a bath. It was very warm and the beds were comfy.
There is an excellent entertainment system for the lazy night in which was lovely.
The area is under 10 minute drive from St Ives town, which is fine as you'd struggle to find a property so spacious and with parking in town. Plus, it was so peaceful!
Just down from the property is a local pub which has some spectacular food and cocktails. The quality of food far exceeds what I would expect from a small local.
We'd absolutely stay again.

we had fab time, loved the accommodation, loved st ives, loved everything about our stay.

First rate accommodation in a great location

By Via Holiday Lettings on 02-Aug-2017

An excellent holiday home that has been equipped with all mod cons by owners who really understand the requirements of their guests. You can use the facilities of the Polmanter touring park which is ideal for children. You can walk to St Ives in 25 minutes but the return journey is all uphill and will take longer. Alternatively you can use the bus service which runs between St Ives and the nearby Polmanter touring park. We really enjoyed our stay at The Old Chapel.

Perfect in every way

By Lynn Watts on 15-Jul-2017

Just returned home after our 3rd stay at The Old Chapel. Simon and Rachel the owners very friendly and efficient. Lovely little welcome pack on arrival, spotless house, beds extremely comfortable with stunning views to wake up to.

We walked in to St Ives via Carbis Bay a few times, this is our favourite walk, the bus runs frequently from Polmanter Park, if you prefer to catch the bus.
Loved coming back here after the hustle and bustle of St Ives, so tranquil. Lucky with the weather again and sat out in the garden most afternoons on the return from our travels.

We've booked again for next year and now and wouldn't stay anywhere else. It's perfect.

Thanks again Simon and Rachel, can't wait for next year

Family Stay

By S Johnson on 04-Jun-2017

Beautiful house in a great location! 4 great sized bedrooms, 3 with an ensuite and and then a family bathroom. Kitchen / dining and living room all open plan which is great for socialising.
We also took our 2 small dogs and they loved it. the Garden is perfect for kids and dogs and the shed had plenty of fun toys for the kids to play with.
You can also use the polmanter touring park facilities and bus service which was ideal. The touring park has a little shop, dog excercising area, pub, park, pool and soft play centre!
You could also walk into st. Ives which only took us about 30mins.
I love this place and would definitely come back!
Great holiday.
