Aphrodite | Luxury Coastal Holiday Home | Boscastle, Cornwall


Trevalga, Boscastle, Cornwall, UK

An enchanting luxury coastal holiday home hidden between the mystical villages of Boscastle and Tintagel, Aphrodite promises a restorative self-catering escape on the edge of the wild North Cornwall coast. Perfectly placed for watching ombre sunsets melt from heavens to horizon, here is a blissful base for creative solo breaks and romantic couples' getaways with dogs in tow.



Bright, spacious and set over five beautifully appointed floors, Aphrodite enjoys spectacular sea views running up and down the undulating cliffs of rugged North Cornwall. Settle around the crackling fireplace and let Mother Nature's magic show take centre stage through the glorious radius windows of this luxury coastal holiday home. Whether it be glassy summer days or dramatic winter storms, the cinematic coastal views impress whatever the forecast. Gather up your loved ones, two and four-legged alike, to discover all the secret hiding places this whimsical holiday home in Boscastle offers.


A tranquil haven where relaxation reigns, this luxury chapel conversion is delightfully eclectic in every way; upcycled furnishings complement the quirky design, while simple Scandi-style white-washed floors run throughout. Ease into the day by watching the sea from the comfort of the king-size bed, hands wrapped around a cup of tea. Down the stone spiral staircases to the lower ground floors, the deep bathtub awaits for lengthy soaks in heady essential oils, while the monsoon shower wet room is just the place to rinse off from a day tramping along the Cornish coastal paths and splashing in the secret coves with the dog at your side.


With the South West Coast Path just minutes from Aphrodite's doorstep, throw on walking boots and explore North Cornwall's spectacular surroundings. Trek through the ancient woodlands of St Nectan's Glen, just two miles down the lane, where ivy-clad trees hide Cornish piskies, or continue along the cliffs to descend the steep track through the Vale of Avalon to King Arthur's castle and Merlin's Cave. Home from a days of adventuring, retreat to the gardens and summerhouse located across the lane from this coastal retreat, to soak-in the last of the day's sunlight and magnificent views of the Atlantic.

From the owner

“Aphrodite has a very special place in our hearts; especially beautiful on a summer´s evening when the sun pours in through the arched windows and fills the space with a golden, celestial light and magnificent coastal views. This really is a magical part of Cornwall.”

From the owner

For a while we had been hunting for a 'home with a view' somewhere tranquil and calm with that something extra special. Before we had even stepped foot inside the property, the sea views that greeted us from the winding track down the hill were impressive and had us immediately captivated. Inside, and spread over five floors, the space and sea views really captured our imagination.

We went from the ground floor down to the bathroom then scrambled right up to the crow's nest mezzanine, struck by the sitting room views half-way. We envisaged where we'd place the bed immediately, rearranging the house in our heads, and we left after that first visit keeping everything crossed that it would be ours.

There is a wonderful sense of calm that falls over you when you visit and we wanted this to be reflected within the interior style, so we used a cool palette of pastel colours to decorate. We have thoroughly enjoyed making the property our own; giving pre-loved furniture finds a new home, looking out for quirky pieces that reflect the history of the building and putting on our own take on this 'heavenly' home.

Guest Testimonials

We have had the most wonderful stay at Aphrodite. Such a pity about the weather but we did a lot of exploring along the coast. The attention to detail, decor and character in Aphrodite will be hard to match! The views are spectacular and the welcome hamper was such a nice touch. Pretty as well as spotless which is just such a nice surprise always! Thank you for all the attention to detail, we will most certainly recommend this cottage to friends.

We really liked the property and it felt very comfortable, the fact we could take our dogs along with us was great and the real reason we booked, the views are stunning and the area is very peaceful although strangely the road can be quite busy.

What an absolutely beautiful place it is. I really enjoyed my few days and I was so comfortable. The owners have done an absolutely superb job, thank you very much for a fantastic few days.

It was a perfect location close to the beach and within walking distance to the sea, with spectacular views from the house. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely property.

What an amazing jewel you have made of this chapel. We loved the little details and the lovely warm atmosphere. Calming down, feeling good, and relaxing all came very easily here in this special place. We and our two dogs loved exploring Cornwall. The people, nature walks, and the coastline was all perfect. Hopefully, we have the chance to come back soon. Thank you for the great experience.

Words are not enough! Aphrodite is such a gem. The countryside and nature around it are beautiful and there was so much to explore, or just to relax. What a wonderful holiday. Thank you all at Unique Homestays.

Thank you for this lovely experience. This is one of the most beautiful houses we have ever seen. The decor and restoration are fabulous. Thank you Unique Homestays for arranging everything so well and for the warm welcome.

Discovering Aphrodite is like walking around a fairytale book, with something to uncover in every corner. Incredibly beautiful and has a real wow factor. We enjoyed the views and watching the sunset every evening. The location is such a lovely area. Thank you Unique Homestays.

What a place! Every detail is just perfect and those views are magical. Many evenings were spent by the fire watching the sunset. We loved exploring the stunning coastline, topped off with a wonderful evening at the Rocket Store. We would highly recommend a visit. Thank you for a relaxing and enjoyable stay.

We spent almost a week in this magical place. We find the possibility of staying in such a unique place truly special. I mean, how many of us have ever lived in a chapel? Its cosiness helps us survive heavy winds and rain. The views are absolutely stunning so we could stay cosy and enjoy the experience.

What an idyllic property, a truly picturesque and peaceful place to spend our mini-moon. We spent many nights sheltered from the wind and rain in front of the log burner and enjoyed the luxury bathtub with its convenient champagne ice bucket. The local area has some lovely places, The Boscastle Farmshop is a must, both for local produce and the cafe. The Napolean Inn has a fantastic atmosphere and great food. Overall we had a fantastic week and would not change a thing. We look forward to returning in the future.

We had a lovely stay at Aphrodite. The property is amazing, totally unique and very special. We had some very relaxing and comfortable evenings in front of the log burner and some great days out exploring Tintagel, Port Isaac and Fowey, plus some lovely beach days at Polzeath and Polkerris. All in all, a fantastic break and we´re sorry to be going home. Thank you.

Aphrodite is gorgeous! We booked Aphrodite for a birthday and it turned out to be more special than we could have ever imagined. Beautifully decorated, stunning views, and a lovely summerhouse to sit and snooze in! All the extras were of fabulous quality, nothing could have been better. We sat many nights just watching the sunset, which was magical each time. Thanks for making it so great!

A wonderful Unique Homestay accompanied by fabulous weather. This converted chapel is a real treasure with hidden delights. This has been a memory that we will both treasure forever for its peace and serenity.

What a wonderful week we´ve had! An absolute gem of a place, one couldn´t have asked for more! Waking up every morning to that view lifts the spirits... how we will miss it! Thank you again!

Aphrodite really was the perfect place to celebrate a 50th birthday! Thank you so much for the welcome goodies including bubbles. We really enjoyed exploring the coastal path and would like to say a big thank you to everyone, especially the housekeeper, for all your help.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to your team for making it so effortless to stay at Aphrodite. We had a fabulous time in this lovely, spacious property in a beautiful location. It was truly relaxing. Just what we needed after the last year! We will be back!

We very much enjoyed every moment of our stay at Aphrodite and were blown away by its beauty, elegance, charm and character. From taking hot baths by candlelight to enjoying drinks by the crackling fire, we concluded our stay feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Although the weather was mostly rainy, we were lucky to experience some periods of sunshine, during which we enjoyed picturesque walks along the coast. We sincerely look forward to our next stay.

What a place! After all the strangeness of the last few months, Aphrodite has felt like an oasis. The view, the building itself and the walks straight from the front door are all fabulous. We feel very lucky to have been able to stay here.

We had such a lovely time here. Aphrodite is such a unique and characterful property, converted and decorated so beautifully and sensitively. We especially loved the living room and watching the changing colours of the sunset to the crackling and purring accompaniment of the fire. Spring is the perfect time to visit - long walks on coastal routes by day, and returning to the welcome embrace of Aphrodite. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

We absolutely loved our stay in Aphrodite and can´t wait to go there again, as well as explore more of your properties. Everyone we spoke to over the phone from Unique Homestays has been charming, helpful and a joy to deal with. We have already recommended Unique Homestays to all our friends and have told them all about our memorable, happy stay in Aphrodite!

We had a lovely time at Aphrodite, it was a fantastic location, perfect for visiting Boscastle and Tintagel! The property was beautiful and so comfortable. We have now enjoyed visiting several of the Unique Homestays properties and we look forward to booking our next one in the New Year!

We had an amazing week. We were both exhausted from work and are leaving feeling human and revived. We explored far and wide and loved every corner of North Cornwall. The biggest revelation was Boscastle itself - just magical! The food at the farm shop was the best we had all week. The terrace across the road from the chapel was the perfect place to have a drink on a sunny day with the sheep observing us and the magnificent views amazing us. Thank you!

We had a wonderful time at Aphrodite, it literally took our breath away when we walked in! There was nothing you hadn’t thought of, we loved all the little touches and will definitely be booking with you in future.
