General

Arriving at Porth Chapel is like something out of a dream. Tropical plants fill the surrounding gardens transporting you to an exotic, faraway land. Step into your snuggly little cabin and fall in love with the rustic and stylish interior. So much care and consideration has been put into the craftmanship of this cabin, which was created by the lovely owner. With upcycled features throughout such as wooden pallet walls and handmade tables, it's a truly charming hideaway with the most calming and quirky character.

The open plan living space invites you to have the most relaxing getaway. The unique, duck egg blue wood burner is the most gorgeous feature to snuggle up by on a cool evening with a glass of red in hand and a decadent, local cheese board to tuck into. When you are ready for a restful night sleep, sink into the sumptuous double bed and drift off to dreamland. The spacious shower room is cleverly tucked to the right of the bed, and it is just wonderful for refreshing your sun kissed skin after a day of rugged coastal rambles and wild swimming. The kitchen is perfectly equipped with everything you need to prep delicious holiday delights. There is a microwave which is skilfully nested within the extra worktop space, an induction hob, toaster, kettle, fridge with freezer compartment (for those all-important ice cubes for your gin and tonic) plus a dishwasher.

The space is light and airy due to the high ceilings but is also incredibly cosy. The wooden beams are decorated with twinkling fairy lit branches, warm copper features flow throughout the cabin, such as the bed frame and kitchen tiles, plus the large industrial hanging lights really do create the most inviting ambience. With eccentric brick walls and textured wood clad areas, you'll be making notes for decorating and upcycling your own home from the very moment you arrive. Within the cabin is the most amazing wall mounted flat screen TV, perfect for relaxing mornings in bed enjoying a cup of tea and watching your favourite film. There's also a brilliant sound system, so you can enjoy listening to your favourite tunes while cooking up a storm.

Step outside your humble abode and soak up the Cornish sunshine. Pop into Newlyn and purchase freshly caught fish from the traditional fish market and enjoy an evening of cooking in nature over the impressive gas barbecue. With plenty of areas to sit and watch the world go by, you can bring your four-legged friend along and relax on the sun-soaked deck, the most idyllic spot for your morning coffee or evening tipple under the stars.

There is another hideaway onsite, Poldhu shepherd's hut and a holiday cottage, but please note the properties are positioned in a way so you have plenty of privacy.

Out and About

By now we are sure you understand that Porth Chapel Cabin is nothing short of a dream and the local area just adds to the unique charm of this wholesome hideaway. Set back from the main road between Penzance and Lands' End, you will find the cabin just past Newlyn in a hamlet named Buryas Bridge. This road can be busy during peak seasons, as it's the gateway to some of Cornwall's best beaches. However, your hideaway is tucked away offering total privacy amongst a tropical Eden. Having easy access to this road and a bus route that takes you to Penzance and Land’s End, means you can reach many stunning landmarks with total ease.

Within walking distance you'll find Newlyn. Up and coming in so many ways, this traditional fishing town is host to many well-established eateries such as Mackerel Sky. There's also a charming wine, tapas and coffee bar named Lovetts which we highly recommend and if you are looking for Cornwall's best ice cream then you are in luck. Jelbert's is loved by all locals and is the only place to go for a traditional Cornish vanilla ice cream (clotted cream on top, ofcourse!) On a rainy day you can visit Newlyn Film House, a gorgeous boutique cinema that also offers delicious food and refreshing beverages. A stone's throw from Newlyn is post card pretty Mousehole. With quaint cobbled streets, boutique shops and delicious places to eat such as The Old Coastguard, The Rockpool and 2 Four Street, it's well worth a visit. A little further afield you will find Lamorna Cove. Famous for its smuggling history, this picturesque fishing village is the perfect spot to sit and watch the world go by while enjoying a picnic. Just a short distance from Lamorna is Porthcurno with its piercing blue waters, white sandy beach and famous theatre perched on the clifftop (The Minack), you won't want to miss a day trip here. Sennen Cove isn't far and is perfect for those who love surfing and long lazy beach days. St Ives is within easy reach not to mention Penzance high street which is only 6 minutes in the car. You'll find the famous art deco Jubilee Pool along Penzance promenade and The Alverne is an amazing restaurant in town. Book in advance to avoid disappointment. Just past Penzance is quaint Marazion, where you can find the magical island castle of St Michael's Mount and lots of lovely galleries to explore. We told you, this hideaway really is positioned in the perfect spot for exploring the very best of West Cornwall!
