The TC is a unique experience. Edging the Atlantic Ocean, the amazing scenery, with sea+mountains feeding every view. The renovated church, featured in George Clarke's TV, has 4 dbl bedrooms 1 ensuite, art deco family shower/bath room shared by rest. Downstairs loo, sofa bed in lounge, comfy 4 adult/child/snorer. If booked with adj Old Vestry it accommodates 12 with additional facilities
Designed Art Deco, quirky comfortable. 1 mile to local village, shops & pubs, she is remote and convenient.

The space
Sauna and Hot Tub add a bit of luxury and with 27 windows, situated to reveal the best of the views on every turn she offers a feast for the eyes. A small library with old church pews, down stairs TV lounge with open fire, (unusable in heavy winds) the church offers a space for every mood. The Dining Room sits 6 comfortably or 8 at a squeeze and with wall piano and music organ she can be used for fine dining or singalongs. The Old Vestry can be completely self contained for 1-4 people or by unlocking adjoining doors can become part of The Main Church to accommodate 8-12 adults. Sofa bed in the downstairs lounge has TV and open fire. Finished in Art Deco style and featured on George Clarke's Building a home in the country, it is beautifully quirky and inviting. All mod cons in an old fashioned style make it a comfortable visit back in time. Each room individually controlled with floor heating. Views are spectacular from every one of the 27, cleverly placed windows and skylights. Old booked library with reading room coaxes a day alone with an old lost treasure. Plenty of room to run or saunter around with walks and sights abundant on the door step. Fully stocked shop within 1 mile, beautiful walks, with 3 stunning pubs, each with a different adventure. 1 can only be accessed via fishing boat. Friendly folk with free roaming across non boundary land well encouraged. Hot Tub and Sauna add a little luxury with the most stunning views from each.

Guest access
If you book both the Main Church and Old Vestry together then you have exclusive access to all facilities. There are a few occasions when both can be booked separately and in this instance some outside facilities can be shared on a schedule. In some instances this means that the Hot Tub will need to be closed at 10 p.m. if a small family are staying in the apartment. Please check.

Other things to note
Challenging and aesthetically spectacular Golf Course at the bottom of the hill. Clubs and kit available to hire at the local shop. If you like your golf mean and rewarding then Seil Island 9 hole long par, 18 course is the one for you. Sea Fari's boat rides, Kayaking and diving. Cliff jumping, stone skimming. local sights, live music, mountain and coastal walks and climbs, wonderful sunsets and rises. A real joy of a place if the windy rain stays a bay.

During your stay
I live in London and visit around 6 times a year. Meaning on occasion I will be in either the Main Church or Old Vestry. There are a few friendly locals who manage the place and are knowledgeable and close enough to resolve any issues. I am on 24 hour call.
