Chapel Point House, just a short distance from our Fowey Hotel - The Cormorant Hotel & Restaurant

A Grade II listed property which is thought to have been the inspiration for a Daphne du Maurier novel has gone up for sale in Cornwall, and comes complete with its own beach.

Chapel Point House was designed by Scottish architect John Campbell in 1936, and is set in 12 acres of land, which is also home to two further houses.

The beach is currently open to public use, but has the choice of being a private space. The house itself contains five bedrooms, four reception rooms, three bathrooms and a drawing room.

Just how much will this property set you back? Current estimations are around the £3 million mark, but it has attracted a lot of attention, so estate agents are predicting it will sell for more than that number.

This is the property that is believed to feature in the 1969 du Maurier novel "The House on the Strand". Although the house is located just outside of St Austell, the story is set just a short distance from our hotel in Fowey, near the village of Tywardreath. The name of the village in fact translates from Cornish into English as "House on the Strand".

Cornwall was quite often the inspiration for du Maurier's novels, and this was no exception. If you would like to see why Fowey and the surrounding area were used to create her masterpieces, why not book a room at the Cormorant Hotel and come and see for yourself?
