Experience - The Area...
Less than a 30 minute drive from Port Isaac and Tintagel on the stunning North Coast and with an abundance of moorland walks on the doorstep, this beautifully renovated property was once the pulpit and organ loft of a 19th century chapel. One of two holiday properties lovingly converted from the original chapel, The Organ Loft is tucked away to one side of a quiet country lane as it winds its way out of the village of St Breward on the western side of Bodmin Moor.
St Breward has a village store/P.O., The Old Inn pub and restaurant, and the highest church in Cornwall, all about a 10 minute walk away; there is also a children's playground in the village and riding stables just over a mile away. For a wider selection of amenities, the towns of Wadebridge, Camelford and Bodmin are a 20 minute drive respectively and have a good selection of local shops and a sports centre with swimming pool.
The spectacular coastline and beaches at Trebarwith, Tintagel, Port Isaac and Polzeath are each about 10 miles, there are golf courses nearby, and the area abounds with rural footpaths; the Camel Trail can be joined at Wenford Bridge only two miles away.
Stay - The Accommodation...
Retaining many of its architectural features with high arched windows, the property is approached from the parking area where there is space for 2 cars and a gently sloping path leads up to the sunny patio and front door, adjacent to rural fields.
An entrance lobby and inner door opens at mid-level to a smartly fitted kitchen with soft closing cabinets and an adjacent dining area flooded by natural light coming through an elevated window and skylight at the rear. To complete the accommodation on this floor is a bathroom W.C. with hand basin, shower over the bath and heated towel rail.
A feature spiral staircase with a polished concrete pillar and stairs made from the original church pews leads up to the first floor and a galleried sitting room with ornate wood panelling and comfortable seating arranged before an arched window looking down onto the patio area.
To one side is a restful library/games room with a well-stocked bookcase, the original wooden floorboards, an internal stained glass window and a further arched window with countryside views to the rear.
On the ground floor of the property, a spacious hallway with storage for coats and footwear, gives access to two delightful bedrooms; the master bedroom with antique furniture and a king-size bed looking out on to the patio and the second bedroom with two single beds.
The property is fronted by a sheltered paved patio with garden furniture which catches the sun for most of the day and at the rear, one step leads down to a service courtyard with steps and a path leading to the lane. Children and dogs will need supervision outside.
