Craigston Chapel, Carriacou

Craigston Chapel, Carriacou

History

Craigston Chapel was built in the 1930’s , on the grounds of Craigston Great House, itself built in 1784, to serve the Catholic community of the nearby village of Bogles. The story goes that the completed building was never consecrated, as plans changed, and over time the building was used as a store room and an animal pen. As a young boy growing up at Craigston I remember a flock of sheep being penned there at night and streaming out to pasture in the morning.

Having lost the roof in a long forgotten hurricane, it was refurbished as a cottage in 1968, and has recently undergone another up-grade and modernization.

The building has very thick stone walls……making for a cool interior…. in European Farmhouse style, and is essentially one room internally with a partition separating off the bedroom from the open-plan living, dining and kitchen areas. On each side of the building there are extensive verandas giving a choice of lounging space, either to avoid the sun as it moves overhead, or to catch the constant breezes on the Eastern side and the glorious sunsets over the Harbour on the Western side. .

Although built in the Great House grounds, which comprise 10 acres of landscaped gardens and orchards, Craigston Chapel is far enough from the main house for it to be completely private, and, although accessed through the main gate, has its own side drive and parking.

This is a very charming, very breezy, cottage, with all needed amenities including free WiFi and internet radio, and lovely views of the town and harbour. It is nestled against park-like mature trees on the Eastern side.

This cottage is ideal for a couple, but could accommodate one other adult or child on a roll away if desired. It is within easy walking distance of the main town of Hilsborough and several beaches.

This is an ideal, historic and very affordable, location from which to explore and enjoy Carriacou.
