A stunning conversion of a former Methodist Chapel, the Old Sunday School is a holiday home on a very grand scale, both in its sheer size and simple opulence. Quietly situated just a minute's walk from the harbour, this is a holiday home like no other in the village – it has vast proportions that will take your breath away. Light streams through the original large arched chapel windows, showing off the vast open plan kitchen/dining room on the ground floor, with an impressive central staircase which leads to the large first floor circular gallery, furnished at either end with two sitting areas. Everything has been thought of for guests, with luxurious furniture and furnishings throughout and thoughtful design features, with all four bedrooms having either en suite bathrooms or en suite shower rooms. It doesn’t come any better, or bigger, than this!
Double doors to entrance hall, staircases to the left and right leading to the first floor. Double glass doors to a vast open plan kitchen/dining room, full of light, which will quite literally take your breath away. The huge proportions and architectural features of this building, with its arched chapel windows, a circular first floor gallery supported by original pillars and an elegant central staircase, will never fail to impress. The whole effect is one of light, space, and grandeur, and the slate flagstone floor which runs throughout the ground floor just accentuates the incredible scale of this room. Kitchen area to the right with cream Shaker style units and wooden worktops, incorporating a breakfast bar. Inset black Zanussi ceramic hob with oven underneath, stainless steel extractor fan, fridge and Neff dishwasher.

We have stayed in many properties in Porthleven over the years and this is by far the most spacious. We were visiting for Flora Day in Helston and have had a lovely time. We think the property is lovely and well-equipped. Overall, a fantastic place and we would recommend it to others who needed a property of this size.The Horne Family, Reading, Berks and Ampthill, Beds.
A fabulous conversion, definitely with the wow factor! The 6 adults and 2 youngsters loved the character and space, and we enjoyed Porthleven, with its beach, harbour and good restaurants, as well as the surrounding area including Great Expectations at the Minack. We loved it! Thank you!Hoyles family and friends, Lincs and London
We can recommend Kernow Coasteering (if you are fit and able!) for a great day/morning out and we enjoyed surfing with Dan Joel Surf School at Poldhu Cove. Minack Theatre (Tosca) was a highlight (take all weather gear!) and somehow we managed St. Ives (Tate Modern) & Penlee House Art Gallery and Museum, Penzance. We have spent a busy 7 days and go home rested from the humdrum of life! (Also, walked round the Lizard and enjoyed a late swim at Kynance Cove).Julian Bryan and family, Midlands
Lovely week at The Old Sunday School - gorgeous place with lots of space and the weather has been amazing! Lovely lazy days and so many great places to eat and drink. Thank you! We'll definitely be back.Clare, Phil, Maisie, Tim & Co. London, Preston and Blackpool
Had a wonderful week. Weather super. House is just as good as always. Have recommended it to lots of friends who have also enjoyed it. Great family house. Here's to the next time. PS Even the surf was good.The Patchett family, Inkley, W. Yorks
Lovely spacious venue. The kitchen is superbly equipped with everything a large group with a child could need. Porthleven is a lovely place, good restaurants, friendly people. Lovely holiday!Stratton and Cunningham families, Herts.
Had a fabulous week, 8 of us had plenty of space and the open plan living area has been so comfortable! Porthleven is a wonderful place with lots of great eateries, drinking holes and friendly people - we can't wait to come back!!! ***** (5 star). Praa Sands is a wonderful beach for body boarding and the kids had great fun crabbing and jumping in the harbour!The Leightons and friends, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Notts
