Unleash your indulgent side in this exquisitely converted Cornish chapel, where dreams aren't just caught, but made to remember.
Think of a 19th century chapel, and you'll most likely picture a striking building with beautiful stained glass windows, enveloped in serene tranquility, whispered prayers and the gentle rustling of pages turning in the Bible.
Fast-forward to the 21st century, and after a stay at Dreamcatcher you'll be adding "luxurious and supremely indulgent holiday accommodation" straight to the list!
Dreamcatcher is a unique and very special property, a spacious three-storey building that flexibly sleeps up to eight people in four bedrooms. You'll find it tucked cosily away in an area of outstanding natural beauty, a scenic peninsula to the south of Sancreed Beacon that features a superlative panorama of Cornish traditions waiting to greet you from the sunny windows! Beach and farmland scenes, together with moorlands, iconic Cornish mine stacks and even the famous St. Michael's Mount can all be viewed from this beautiful building.
With such a breathtaking vista awaiting you outside, it's only right that Dreamcatcher's interiors are just as compelling...and you won't be disappointed with the property's intricate attention to the tiniest of detail, from the chapel's original deed in the hallway and the clever use of reclaimed timber throughout, to the stained glass windows and quirky lamps that will illuminate your way. Lovingly restored to maintain the original character and tranquility of the building's history, you'll also find plenty of contemporary decorative touches, together with thoughtful design that maximises natural light.
No matter how you like to spend your holiday time, you'll find a space within Dreamcatcher that has been created with you in mind. The bedrooms, one including its very own ensuite wet room, have soft comfort and relaxation built right in, with their high-quality furnishings and fine linen sheets that are just perfect for snuggling under. Storytellers and book lovers will adore the well-stocked private library, with colourful streams of daylight flooding in through stained glass windows.
For those who like to congregate over a glass or two of good wine and conversation (or even a great film) the sumptuous drawing room, with its plush and inviting furnishings, is ideal. The main bathroom features a reclaimed cast iron bath and an indulgent rainfall shower with reclaimed timber all around for a rustic feel...all perfect for whiling away the cares of everyday life!
The spacious kitchen diner includes a romantically warming log burner, and is ideal for foodies, with plenty of high quality kitchen equipment and extensive preparation space for those laughter-accompanied, heartily decadent meals that go on all night! To get your foodie journey off to an excellent start, you'll even find a hamper waiting for you on arrival, packed full of tempting local delicacies.
The relaxation continues outside, where an open firepit provides the perfect setting for the kind of sunset and stargazing that inspires the loveliest of dreams. During the day, the cottage garden with its natural ponds becomes a haven for wildlife watching, with al fresco meal preparation from the secluded summer house.
Of course, on colder days you'll find plenty of entertainment inside, with sound systems, televisions equipped with Netflix and Sky HD, broadband and DVD/Blu-ray players all available.
If you can tear yourself away from Dreamcatcher, you'll discover a wealth of activity and adventure right on your doorstep. The nearby Drift Reservoir provides excellent bird watching and fishing opportunities for nature-lovers, and beaches with windswept hidden coves are abound - in addition to windswept coastal walks, why not try a spot of kayaking or surfing?
The famous market town of Penzance is just a short drive away, and there you'll find a mélange of local delights including fresh produce, wine and original souvenirs. Perhaps head to St. Ives for a gourmet meal, there are plenty of high quality restaurants to choose from, and of course you have to sample the essential seaside fish and chip supper over at the fishing village of Newlyn!
All manner of holiday-enhancing assistance can be provided, from baby and dog-sitting to food shopping, chauffering and additional cleaning...and if you want to indulge even more, why not arrange an in-house beauty treatment or two...or even for a private chef to come and cook you a locally-sourced feast in your kitchen?
For a ‘get away from it all' holiday that caters to every possible requirement in the lap of Cornish luxury, why not come and catch yourself some truly unforgettable dreams?
