The Old Chapel is a beautifully renovated former Wesleyan chapel in the heart of Cornwall.
Known in its original days as the Broadoaks chapel, named after the hamlet of Broadoak, it was built in the late 19th century and was used by a mix of farmers and workers from the local Boconnoc estate, the home of the Fortescue family, descendents of the Pitt family of parliamentary fame.
The chapel saw dwindling numbers in the post war years and by the early 1960s congregations were regularly in single figures and there was no longer the finance to pay for its upkeep and maintenance.
It closed in 1963 and was left to the elements for several years before being bought by a local cabinet maker and joiner who set about sympathetically converting it into a spacious, comfortable home.
The chapel lies beside the road to Lostwithiel and the bedrooms look east over countryside.
The current owners, Kimberley and Greg, are continuing to care for the chapel and have refurbished the entire property.
We very much enjoy living here and hope you will also enjoy your time at the former Broadoaks chapel.
We have refurbished all of the rooms to a very high standard giving the chapel a modern feel whilst still retaining some of the original features, such as the stained glass windows which feature in the Heligan room.
We also run our B&B to be as friendly to the planet as possible. For example, we recycle as much of our rubbish as we can, we use LED lights throughout the chapel, we use as many local suppliers as possible so your breakfast never travels far!
We have a lot of experience in managing and running hotels and put the same effort, care and attention into running our little bed and breakfast in the heart of the Cornish countryside.
We are sure you will feel relaxed thanks to the slower pace of life here, whilst still enjoying all of the modern features of a high quality bed and breakfast.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Kimberley & Greg
