We had a great stay at this delightful cottage, it was peaceful and good value, would recommend for a great stay.

Mr Robert H,

We stayed at 1 The Chapel, for a week in September 2017. It was great value for money, being much cheaper than a lot of other options that we examined and yet lacking nothing that you need for a comfortable stay. The kitchen (ground floor) had all we needed for cooking our own meals and the sitting room (upstairs) was bright, clean and well furnished. The one double bedroom and bathroom were all we needed. The location is 10 minutes drive from Porthleven, which is gorgeous, or a leisurely 2 hour walk east along the coastal path. It is also a short (10 minute) walk from The Chapel down onto the secluded beach at Rinsey Cove or an hour's walk west to Praa Sands Beach. All in all, The Chapel is perfect, and affordable for the couple who want a base from which to explore west Cornwall.

Praa Sands (pronounced Pray or Prah) is a village and beach located a few miles north of Porthleven and a few miles south of Marazion (home of St Michaels Mount). Famed for its fantastic waves and glorious mile-long sandy beach, it is a popular destination for visitors. With a beach café, golf club, village shop and pub, Praa Sands is the perfect place for a relaxing beach holiday. As well as its own brilliant white sands, there are also two neighbouring beaches; Rinsey Cove and Kenneggy Cove.

Praa Sands is situated between the Lizard Peninsula (the most southerly point in the UK) and the far west of Cornwall, making it easy to explore both of these stunning areas. Head west and explore St Michael’s Mount and Land’s End and experience the amazing art scene and fabulous food of St Ives. Or head south to the rugged Lizard Peninsula and walk the spectacular South West Coast Path. There are many idyllic little villages to explore in this beautiful part of Cornwall.
