Excellent location with onsite parking, close to a Pub with a very good Menu. Plenty of walks and beaches close by, my dog loved it. Short drive to the Lizard and Lands End and in between, to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Chyvean has it all, inside and outside showers, electric car charging point etc., etc.,even a stairgate to stop the dog going upstairs.

Brilliant cottage - really well equipped and comfortable in a great location with a fantastic pub!

A great cottage to stay in . The beds were really comfortable, the place very clean with everything you needed there. We also loved the location because it was quiet and there were lots of beautiful walks you could go on.

Perfect place to stay - one of our new favourites!

Nice little house, well looked after and recently refurbished. Close to the coast path with Church / Poldhu Cove and Porthleven within hiking distance for a pair of 7 year olds. Gunwalloe itself has a pretty decent play park and a library in their bus stop, which we all enjoyed, and this is a great base for trips out to Lizard, Helston, and further afield!

Beautiful home is a peaceful little village. Easy access to coastal walks and little coves. We had a brilliant time and would love to come back in the future.

This is an absolutely lovely cottage for a family holiday and exactly as described on the website. It is located five minutes drive away from Church Cove which is an ideal, family friendly beach. There is also a beautiful beach within walking distance of the cottage, perfect for evening strolls and very close to the Halzephron Inn. Slightly further afield, but still within easy driving distance, are Helston (for food shopping), Lizard Point, Poldhu beach and Porthleven which boasts a wide variety of places to eat. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and would very happily return in the future.

We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is very comfortable, everything you need is at hand and the beds are cosy. The house offers the chance to explore the local area with lots of great costal walks. We will definitely be back.

A lovely, welcoming house. Well equipped with cosy beds.

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful cottage. Such a lovely place!

A lovely comfortable cottage which thanks to the directions given was easy to find. It is clear that much thought had been taken with both furniture and décor. Comfy beds and sofas added to a relaxing break. The cottage is ideally situated for some beautiful coastal footpath walks, including Gunwalloe to Porthleven and Gunwalloe village to Church Cove.

We really enjoyed our holiday at Chyvean. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped, and very cosy with a great stove. The road is quiet and there's a children's playground, and the Halzephron Inn is a great pub a few minutes walk away. Even though it was half term we often had miles of the beach to ourselves even when Church Cove was busy. Great walks with the dog along the coastal patch to Poldhu Cove and Porthleven too. Can't wait for our next holiday!

Lovely comfortable cottage, great location. Very pleased to have found this cottage.

Chyvean is one of the best cottages we have stayed in. The house is in a lovely quiet location for the beach which was perfect for walking the dog. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. The beds are amazing…..where are they from?! Great that the courtyard garden is enclosed for the dog too. Easy to walk the local pub which served great food. Close enough to explore other great places in the area. We will definitely be back very soon!

A wonderfully comfortable cottage with all the creature comforts within easy walking of a great beach and a cosy pub.

A really lovely tastefully decorated and cosy cottage in a beautiful location. Beautiful beach a stones throw way and a fantastic pub. Good access to Porthleven
