When we first bought our chapel in Gorran High Lanes back in 1991, it was completely derelict. The roof was caving in, and it needed a great deal of work to make it liveable! We worked tirelessly to fully renovate it but left in many of the original features giving it a unique and quirky charm.
Despite this, for 25 years, we wondered why our beautiful chapel conversion never turned into a profitable rental business. Over the years, we went through countless rental agencies but only ever had a handful of school holiday bookings. Made worse by the bookings we did have, bringing in some nightmare guests… The property was costing thousands a year in bills and upkeep, and we had no choice but to sell. However, what happened next completely changed our outlook.
