The Old Chapel
Cornwalls Best
Holiday in Cornwall

Zennor Village is situated just half a mile from the South West Coast path in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is a very picturesque small farming village boasting an 11th Century church, a pub and the oldest privately owned museum in Cornwall. Close by is the quaint seaside town of St. Ives with its cobbled streets and acclaimed for its golden sandy beaches, famous art galleries and numerous restaurants and cafes.

The Old Chapel Backpackers is an ideal midway point for anyone wishing to walk the coastal path from St. Ives to Land's End or for anyone wishing to walk from St. Ives, stay the night and walk back again. We are also perfect for anyone interested in outdoor activities such as rock climbing, water sports, birdwatching, fishing, diving, surfing etc. or exploring the many hidden coves or for those who simply want to relax, unwind and get away from it all.

We are a small independent family run backpackers. We can accommodate 32 piople in six rooms (Max. 6 people per room) including one family room (and you do not have to be a "backpacker" to stay with us). Everyone is welcome!
