We really enjoyed our stay at Chy Morva. The view across the fields to the sea was great, and the sense of calm and remoteness in the AONB was wonderful. It was a short walk across those fields to Porthcurno beach, the Minack Theatre, and the Logan Rock pub. The house was comfortable, well maintained and in good condition. The upstairs living room / kitchen has a lovely high ceiling and great views from the balcony. Nespresso machine, and a big TV were unnecessary but very much appreciated. The hosts next door were friendly and welcoming - and we really appreciated the cream tea provided for us on arrival. Highly recommended.

Our second visit to Chy Morva and it was all as we remembered. Such a relaxing place with stunning views and so warm and cosy even in the howling wind. We love the Penwith area and even in November there are plenty of places to visit. Not to be missed is the local market held at Sennen on a Tuesday morning and the farm shop at St Buryan is a winner for quality produce and a coffee. We also really appreciated the fantastic welcome hamper. Best ever!

We're thrilled you returned for a second visit to Chy Morvah and are so glad it was just as good ! Thanks for your helpful local tips - we hope to welcome you back for a third visit soon. Julie, Customer Support

Excellent property. Excellent hosts. Far exceeded our expectations.

We had a fabulous break at Chy Morva. The cottage is absolutely outstanding - clean, fantastic views, well-appointed with high quality fittings. The upstairs open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area was particularly impressive, light and airy with a lovely balcony with wonderful views - but also a cosy place to hunker down with wood burner etc should the weather not be kind. The welcome package is VERY generous and the owners next door were friendly and helpful but never obtrusive. It is a 10 minute walk across the fields to Porthcurno and the beach and similarly a 10 minute walk to the Logan Rock Pub.

We definitely will be back for another visit.

We have just returned from a winter break at Chy Morva. The accommodation and location are outstanding. A very short walk from the beautiful Porthcurno beach this property gave a perfect blend of practical living and luxury. The owners who live in the adjacent property were discreet but available if we needed them. The view from the balcony is pretty spectacular. We would not hesitate to recommend a stay.

A lovely place to relax in, with the stunning views. Very warm and comfortable. Very friendly and helpful owners. The local shop at nearby St Buryan very well stocked and also impressed with the Farm shop at St Buryan.

We had an excellent time at Chy Morva. It was extremely clean and comfortable. The owners provided a very lovely welcome package too. We would definitely recommend it to friends and family and would rebook to go again ourselves too.

Thank you.

The cottage was of a very high standard, well equipped, extremely comfortable, and made for an idyllic week. Lots of extra touches from the hosts made it extra special and use of the garden area and lovely gas barbeque was a bonus.

Our second visit to Chy Morva, one of our favourite holiday cottages. Top quality accommodation and great location make it the ideal choice for visiting this lovely part of Cornwall. Can’t wait to return!

Lovely house, very well equipped. Excellent location, short walk across the fields to Porthcurno (get the right footpath!) Very helpful hosts.

One of the best cottages we have stayed in. Very stylish and comfortable. Kitchen fitted with top notch equipment and everything you would need. Very generous welcome pack. Lovely cream tea on the veranda. Lovely views both back and front.

It beat our expectations. The hosts were very friendly and really helpful. Facilities were amazing. The property is even better than the pictures. The area is beautiful and the beach at Porthcurno is breathtaking. Liked: Everything about the property.

Our second visit to Chy Morva, a beautiful property with a fabulous view, and every room so stylishly furnished and decorated. The weather was not kind to us, but it was interesting to be in such a dramatic location during such a stormy week! Visited all our usual favourite places; also snuggled up and watched some good films. Highly recommended!

We had a marvellous week in a stunning area. Absolutely recommendable.

A fabulous retreat!

A wonderful holiday let with fabulous sea & country views from the upside down living room & kitchen. Only a short walk to Porthcurno beach & 10 mins drive to Sennen. Chy Morva was very well equipped with an incredibly generous welcome pack. Spacious for 4 with a great outside space & access to a BBQ. Would highly recommend.

A very high specification cottage, with lots of nice touches. Welcome supplies were provided which exceeded our expectations. Great location for walking coastal path and other walks. Also 10 minute walk to Porthcurno beach, and local hostelry. We will definitely return.

A well equipped cottage that exceeded our expectations. Generous welcome pack including wine, cream tea. fruit and log fire on a cold Spring day.

Beautiful location, with amazing views of the sunrise and sunset over the horizon. The property was fabulous, with a very high standard of décor and very stylishly fitted out.;

Beautiful location, stunning high end interior. Could not want for anything once inside. Could have quiet easily bought food and stayed in all week.

Fantastic cottage, 5 stars!

Very stylish, comfortable, well equipped property in a peaceful but not too remote location with distant sea views. Friendly unobtrusive hosts who quickly dealt with one small housekeeping issue that arose. Visitors book would be handy as always good to hear other guests observations, recommendations etc. Would recommend this property.

Chy Morva is a modern, fantastic and stunning property in a wonderful location with panoramic sea views .

We received a warm welcome from Angela to this wonderful top spec cottage, very peaceful with beautiful views of the coast. Sitting on the balcony watching the birds in the garden and looking out to sea was just perfect, very restful and relaxing. Just a 10 minute walk across the fields and your onto the beach or coastal paths. The cottage has a well equipped kitchen along with lovey bathroom and en suite. Top class linens and towels. The extras Andrea provided were a lovely surprise from wine to scones with clotted cream, milk, butter, tea, flowers etc. Would throughly recommend this gem of a cottage if your after some peace and quite.

We had a superb stay in this beautifully appointed cottage. Andrea’s attention to detail is meticulous. There is nothing we can think of that was not provided.

We had a friendly welcome from a very generous host. Tea , Coffee , Wine , Cream Tea, Jam, Marmalade, Milk, Bread, Butter and Biscuits all provided which helped us settle in on a hot Sunday afternoon after a long drive.

Everything was to the highest possible standard. Fixtures and fittings perfect. Shower and bathrooms superb. The large TV was welcome especially with the World Cup showing.

The location is beautiful. Balcony views outstanding. Porthcurno beach easy to walk to with no need to move the Car. Just be careful at Porthcurno if you have young children as the water becomes very deep after only a few metres from the shore. Perfect swimming for Adults and Teenagers.

Wall to wall sunshine helped but even if that had not been the case we would have been perfectly happy !

We have been coming to this part of Cornwall - with Classic Cottages - for the last 20 years and this cottage is one of the very best we have stayed in
