Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Enjoy sea views from the comfort of your kingsize bed in the lofty master bedroom with private mezzanine level. Stone spiral steps lead down to the sanctuary of the luxury bathroom on the lower ground floor, where you can sink into the deep bathtub while your lover recites Thomas Hardy poems from the day bed. There is also a separate monsoon rain shower wet room on this level and a ground floor cloakroom.
With the rugged North Cornwall coastpath right on your doorstep, don your walking boots and explore the spectacular surroundings. Trek through the forested valleys of Boscastle and Tintagel, discovering legends of Cornish witches and the Hermit of St Nectan’s Glen. At the lower end of nearby Tintagel you will find a steep track that passes down through the vale of Avalon to the legendary site that is known as King Arthur's Castle and Merlin's Cave. The gardens are across the lane from the chapel and enjoy magnificent coastal views. Grab a blanket and head for the stone love seats to chink fizzing glasses as the sun sets on your perfect day.
Let Mother Nature's magic show take centre stage in the floor-length arched picture window in the sitting room. Settle yourself around the crackling fireplace with a glass of red in hand and prepare for majestic sunsets and dramatic coastal storms to entertain you, until you drift off to sleep under the soft light of the feathered angel wings in this angelic abode.
There is parking for one car. The chapel is equipped with electric cooker, microwave, dishwasher and combined washing machine and dryer.

AROUND THE PROPERTY
Style: A palette of cherubic blush, calm greens and cool greys offset natural stone and aged wood floors. There is a nod to the gothic and ecclesiastical majesty reigns through metallic accents and angelic accessories
Marketing Manager Francesca says
I visited Aphrodite on a beautiful summer’s evening and was immediately taken by its unassuming grandeur. The golden sun poured in through the arched chapel windows, filling the space with a celestial light which greets you with the warmest of welcomes, to this magical part of Cornwall.

FOOD AND DRINK
Create an indulgent feast in the cosy kitchen using the very best of local fodder. Boscastle farm shop (as well as serving great local food) is the perfect place to pick up some locally-grown produce. Back at the chapel, candelabras and ancient pews chock-full with well-thumbed reads set the scene for romantic after-dark dining by candlelight.
If you'd rather spend your luxury self-catering break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your party (on prior request and subject to an additional cost).
For a coastal inn with character in abundance, don your walking boots and head down the road to the Riverside in Boscastle which serves fresh local lobster. The foodie Mecca of Padstow is only a short coastal drive away, where you'll find the renowned seafood restaurants in abundance. For simple, rustic cuisine, real ales and fine wines head to St Tudy Inn or St kew Inn both come highly recommended and celebrate the finest seasonal local produce on offer.
