An excellet property, in an ideal quiet location.

A lovely property, very well equipped and with fabulous gardens. Within easy reach of great places to eat and wonderful beaches and coast path walking. This was our third visit and I very much hope we will be back

A wonderful home from home. Lovely cottage with beautiful gardens. Great location for exploring West Cornwall. Plenty of superb beaches and walks nearby.

We had a wonderful family holiday at this amazing house. Spotlessly clean on our arrival, very comfortable beds, great facilities and an amazing location. Plenty of local walks so you never have to drive but also some great beaches and pubs nearby if you want to venture out. The garden is absolutely fantastic.

Lovely location Extensive grounds 3 showers!!! Lots of games

Very quiet location but close to amenities and beach, every single possibility catered for including birthday candles!

Lovely cosy clean cottage with comfy beds. The garden and fields were fabulous and very dog friendly. The location was peaceful and quiet. We had a slight issue with a water leak which was dealt with swiftly by the friendly owner [Jemma]. Long Rock has a great dog friendly beach with car park, together with the excellent 'Mexico inn' for a bite to eat [also dog friendly] Also highly recommend Rick Steins in Porthleven which is also dog friendly.

Wonderful location, very peaceful, beautiful garden. Our dogs had a wonderful time chasing the bunnies in the garden! Great location for exploring south Cornwall.

Beautiful but currently problematic.

It's great to see that you felt Chy-an-Hobi was a beautiful cottage; we'd have to agree. We've obviously now spoken and you explained that the property was lovely but the enclosed garden didn't quite work for your dog. Unfortunately we'd never be able to guarantee that a garden would be fully escape-proof, as we know that the most determined of dogs will find a way, regardless of gates and fencing....! We really appreciate your time in chatting through your thoughts with us. Classic Cottages

This was our 2nd visit to the property and already have a 3rd booked - lovely well equipped cottage with fabulous gardens - can't wait to go back

lovely, warm comfortable cottage in a great location. Fabulous garden and plenty of space. Highly recommend.

I absolutely loved our stay at this house. It’s a gorgeous house, very well equipped and set in the most amazing gardens. The area is very pretty and you can walk behind the house up onto the moors. The location is great too - the Gurnards Head pub, which does amazing food, is up the road and Penzance is only a couple of miles away. It’s a short drive to all the best beaches and coast path walks. I absolutely recommend Chy an Hobi, it’s the perfect holiday home.

We had a fantastic holiday at Chy-An-Hobi. A beautiful cottage in a wonderful setting with lots of space for our two children and dog to play. We didn’t want to leave! It had everything we needed and was very comfortable and welcoming. When we had a plumbing issue, the owner sent a plumber round the same day and the problem was fixed straight away. A great base to explore this stunning part of Cornwall. We look forward to returning.

For anyone requiring a holiday rental, in a very quiet location, with loads of room, both in the cottage and garden, then this is the place. Only a couple of miles from Penzance, but so quiet and relaxing.

Perfect cottage to explore the South West Coast as its bang in the middle of the south and north coast with dramatic scenery on the coastal path. The cottage has everything you need and is very cozy and comfortable with the most amazing well maintained outside gardens and paddocks. It is a very peaceful and relaxing place to stay.

This place is amazing. Great garden, peaceful but easy to reach tourist hotspots. Absolutely perfect cottage. Would love to spend another holiday here. Couldn't fault it.

We had a wonderful break and thoroughly enjoyed walking the dogs on the surrounding beaches and exploring the local lanes , on our next visit we have planned a walk to Zenna and a pub lunch ! Just can’t wait ,it’s all lovely

A wonderful cottage for our holiday in Cornwall. Great Location away from the hustle and bustle but yet close enough to get to everywhere we wanted. Beautiful large garden and paddocks for Milo (our German Shepherd) who was on his first holiday to Cornwall, this made everything just perfect for him and us. I would highly recommend staying at this cottage if you are a couple wanting some space or a family needing the space, kids and dogs will love the outside space.

Simply an absolute joy to stay here, in a location completely away from it all, in perfect surroundings, yet still so close to Penzance. Not only did we the adults love it here, but the dogs had the time of their lives too, in all of the garden!

A beautiful, and extremely well equipped cottage, situated in a serene location. Spent a lovely week in absolute comfort, and couldn't ask for a better location or abode. I would definitely consider returning.

This cottage is excellent for a large family or a group of friends (as we were) Very safe and everything you need is there Ok no wi-if or mobile signal (unless you go up the hill) but that didn't bother us An excellent base for exploring Cornwall Would defenitely stay again

An amazing place to invite the whole family to relax and enjoy.

We were very happy with the accommodation. It was comfortable, although a little on the cold side in the evenings. The location for us was perfect as we had easy access to all the coastal beaches and towns in west Cornwall. We would return to this property.

Thanks for taking the time to review Chy-an-Hobi. We were delighted to hear the cottage and its location worked well for you overall. It's a shame you were a little chilly in the evenings - the cottage has full oil fired central heating which can be adjusted on the radiators for comfort and we hope that the wood-burner helped to take the chill off a little.

Loved it, everything we wanted and expected. Beautiful cottage, lovely grounds, very comfortable.

I really cannot recommend this cottage enough, it is stunning. Huge outdoor space, lovely décor and very clean. There is no Wi-Fi or phone signal but this provides a great opportunity to really switch off from the world and enjoy the cottage and its surroundings.

The cottage has everything you need and really felt like home for our time there.

A fantastic cottage in an ideal peaceful location, still close to Penzance.

Lovely cottage and location is quiet and it is easy to access north/south coast and all amenities whilst being within lovely countryside.

Delightful cottage and gardens.

The size and layout of this property made it ideal for our family group of five plus dog to stay in comfort, whilst still allowing us space for peace and quiet when needed! Parking was easy with two large cars, and although in a quiet location, there are many places to explore within only a view minutes drive of the house.

A super place. Well-located, comfortable, beautifully renovated, well equipped and a lovely welcoming bottle of wine and biscuits to boot! Excellent indeed!

Fabulous location, not too far from amenities but a feeling of peace and tranquillity.

Nice house & grounds.

The cottage was everything we hoped for. Beautifully furnished, comfortable and welcoming. The wine and biscuits was a lovely touch.

The gardens and paddock are very special indeed and we were totally relaxed laying on the sun loungers each day. Will definitely be coming back.

A fantastic cottage which was roomy and well appointed. Ideal for dogs and their owners! Really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

Fantastic place for families and dogs!

Our first visit to cornwall and this cottage made it perfect lovely furnishings a beautiful garden lots of useful info about the area and very clean with good quality equipment. I think we will be back

Great cottage offering all the necessities as well as some extras to make a home from home. Comfortable and welcoming, we'd stay there again.

Great house, cosy comfortable and very well equipped.

We had a fantastic holiday at Chy-an-Hobi. The cottage is well-furnished and every bit as good as it looks in the photos in a lovely rural setting and with an extensive garden. It is very well placed to explore the west of Cornwall. When we had problems with the en-suite shower the owners were most apologetic and tried to get it fixed as soon as possible.
