A very comfortable and tastefully converted chapel. The owners have provided everything needed for a lovely holiday and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was a very peaceful and relaxing break. The property has a nice garden which would be lovely to relax in if the weather was warmer. All the rooms overlook it and there are multiple bird feeders visited by many small birds - lovely to see. The property is a couple of miles from the village of Kilkhampton and it is easy to explore (with a car) a range of attractions in Cornwall and Devon. There are also some lovely areas to explore very close to the property. We hope to visit again soon! Thanks!
Bishops is warm, cosy and one of the best equipped cottages we have stayed in. The chapel is in a lovely rural location, with Tamar Lakes nearby but close enough to local amenities and attractions. As expected in February the weather wasn't great but we enjoyed a walk about the upper lake and to get out somewhere everyday. On return the cottage was very warm and we enjoyed the wood burner, but didn't need it to keep warm. Loved all the original chapel features built into the conversion and my daughter and I enjoyed the experience of cooking on the Aga. I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a peaceful break and hope to visit again.
What a beautiful chapel to stay in.. it is totally charming, clean, warm (I stayed in October) and has everything you need. Nestled 5 mins away from the village of Kilkhampton it is an ideal holiday location. A wonderful base for visiting Cornwall. Will definitely stay again !
We had a lovely stay at this beautifully renovated chapel in February 2017. It was warm and cosy on cold evenings. All the equipment, furniture and fittings are of a very high standard and we loved the little reminders of the historic past of this converted Wesleyan Chapel including the gothic windows, antique wall clock and antique clasp Bible in a special Bible cupboard. The cottage is full of charm and character and we warmly recommend it. Next time we would come back in warmer weather to be able to take full advantage of the lovely garden and decking.
There is much on offer in the wider area, we travelled to Paignton Zoo near Torquay, Arlington Court (National Trust) north of Barnstaple, the breathtaking cliffs and beach at Sandymouth (National Trust) and Splash swimming pool in Bude, a quiet and attractive resort.
We were also impressed with Sallie's prompt responses to our booking and email queries.
Stayed here over New Year with my wife and four children.
Exceptional – This place has the wow factor. Exceptional accommodation with every detail right. Very decent, straightforward, honest and generous owners.
Enchanting – Beautifully restored Chapel with great sensitivity to the buildings spiritual history. The building is the best place we have ever stayed to rest body mind and soul. It’s just a very special building and setting. The area is also wonderful. For us the perfect distance from civilisation if you want it, but cut off enough to feel like you really have escaped.
Comfortable – The owner’s generosity of spirit really shines through. Every detail is well thought through. The Chapel is very well heated. The beds are very comfortable. The furnishing is very tasteful. The owners allow you to enjoy the place as if it is your own private escape. Really, we cannot fault anything.
We will certainly be going back as soon as we are able.
