A beautiful property in an idyllic setting. We had a wonderful relaxing stay in these surroundings.

One of the best cottages/houses we have stayed in, well furnished, thoughtfully decorated, plenty of equipment and accessories particularly in the kitchen for example. Everything worked and had been checked and looked after, which was a real bonus. Plenty of space in side and out, so we could all enjoy some quiet time as well as family time around the super dining table by lovely wood burner and Esse oven, which we had no control over whatsoever heat wise but enjoyed the warmth it gave us for our annual winter break. Lovely countryside around us and plenty of places to walk nearby. We didn't venture far sadly, due to Covid restrictions we kept ourselves to ourselves. We would all love to visit Chygowlin again, next time we'll visit the surrounding area.

We're so pleased that Chygowlin offered a peaceful haven during these unusual times. We do hope that you'll be able to return and enjoy the walks and attractions that surround this lovely house. Tanya, Customer Support

Our second stay at Chygowlin. Loved it last year, loved it this year, and hoping to love it next year. Its location is just about 20 minutes from everywhere. Still hoping for that lottery win so that we can make an offer on this place.

Thank you for your lovely comments for your stay at Chygowlin House. It sounds like this property ticks all the boxes and your visit was exactly what the doctor ordered - another booking next year might just be the icing on the cake for 2021. Fingers crossed for that lucky ticket! Sarah, Customer Support

If you like total seclusion, deafening silence, and tranquility this is for you. The house is really comfortable, the garden is huge and exciting if you have young children. Nothing not to like and it’s within easy reach of so many beaches and glorious walks. We’re definitely going back again.

One word...Amazing!

Beautiful, well equipped house with lovely garden in a very quiet location. Yet very close to shops in Truro and easy reach to both north and south coasts. We will try and get back there again soon.

Chygowlin House worked very well for a festive retreat. The property was wonderfully quiet (and no one was living in the attached cottage at the time). Great central location (although a challenge for Waitrose to find!) fairly close to Truro, Falmouth, some excellent beaches and walks.

The house and grounds are simply beautiful, it has been exquisitely and sympathetically restored with just the right amount of modernity. The decor is inspiring, the house embraces you the moment you arrive, we spent a very relaxed and peaceful few days. Thank you.

We truly delighted in our stay at Chygowlin House and hope to return in the future.

The house was just beautiful, oozing with quality and style. Thoroughly enjoyed by the whole family. Excellent location for exploring Cornwall. We will be recommending the property to friends!

beautiful cottage, has everything you need for a great week away. Gardens are lovely and cottage is in a very good location.

Fabulous property, beautiful location with easy access to Truro and Falmouth.

Nicest property we've had the pleasure of staying in. If we ever won big on the lottery, would make an offer to buy this place. Stunning gardens and layout. Tasteful interior and decor. Loved it. Only worry is that as more people stay here it will be so popular it will be permanently booked up in the future.

My family and two grandmothers stayed at Chygowlin house for some days. The place is just great and we really enjoyed it, eventhough the weather was not perfect. But we had so much space in the house and the fantastic garden surrounding the cottage. It was our first stay in Cornwall and we are happy to come back. greetings fom Vienna, Austria Meine Familie mit 2 Großmüttern verbrachten einige Tage in den Osterferien in dieser traumhaften Gegend. Das Cottage ist so schön und als wir ankamen, standen wir erstaunt davor und waren uns nicht sicher , ob wir richtig sind. Aber obwohl das Wetter nicht immer so toll war, könnten wir uns gut im Haus aufhalten, weil das Haus so groß und geräumig und der umgebende Garten wunderschön sind. Es gibt absulut nichts zu beanstanden, von der Buchung bis zum Aufenthalt und ich kann es nur wärmstens empfehlen. Ich hoffe, dass wir auch wieder einmal hier zurückkommen und dann definitiv länger bleiben, da es noch so viel zum Anschauen und Erkunden in dieser Gegend gibt. Liebe Grüße aus Wien, Österreich

We stayed at Little Chygolin last year and the this year decided to stay at Chygowlin House. I can recommend them both for their quality furnishings, great artworks and spotlessly clean presentation.

We had a wonderful stay at Chygowlin House. Both the house and garden are fantastic. Beautifully furnished and well equipped. The location is great for getting out and about. Would definitely recommend.

Chygowlin is a lovely spacious house in beautiful gardens with lots of places to visit within easy reach. Trelissick House and Trebah Gardens well worth a visit. St Mawes on the Roseland Peninsula via the King Harry Ferry also worth a visit.

A truly beautiful cottage, inside and out! Really cannot fault anything.

Worth every penny, a wonderful cottage and superb quiet surroundings!

We had the holiday that we wanted, we went home fully relaxed . This holiday house took our breath away on arrival , to see my family's faces was just so funny they thought l had taken a wrong turn. This was truly a dream location with gardens to match the house.

We had a wonderful holiday in Chygowlin House. It’s a beautiful property in an idyllic setting with fantastic gardens which our children spent many happy hours exploring. Although quite remote (a car is essential) its an ideal base to explore both the north and south coasts.
We would thoroughly recommend this property and hope to return!

We had a wonderful holiday - thank you so much for accommodating our needs at short notice and allowing us to extend our stay because we were having such a great time. We will definitely book a holiday cottage with you again.

A lovely and spacious cottage with a beautiful garden set in a peaceful yet accessible location.
