I booked a chapel cottage for four nights from Friday to Monday. My reason for visiting Cornwall was to attend a jewellery course that ran over the weekend. Given the time of year that I went (24-27th August with a Bank Holiday Monday), I was impressed at the price of staying here; it is cheaper than the B&Bs and crappy Travel Lodge/Premier Inns (they're both the same anyway) and you can come and go as you please. They also have flexible booking with a minimum of a two-night stay.
There is enough car-parking for all the guests, the location is above the village of Lostwithiel in a really tranquil, pretty spot with the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and local amenities all close by. I was staying in 'Fountain' Chapel cottage and found it to be very clean, very cosy, with everything that I needed and with a massive chapel window. The bathroom is a little small but I'm a large lady and still found it comfortable to use.
The owners are very friendly and give you a little tour of the property; there is a footpath down to the village, a couple of ponds and an outside swimming pool. I am planning on doing another course in Cornwall and I really, really hope that I can stay here again. I am already recommending it to everyone I know! All in all, it was a very pleasant stay.
