Chy Lowen has an ideal location for proximity to the centre of Falmouth with access to restaurants, cafes, and shops but the location for walking is steep with stairs and therefore difficult for anyone with mobility issues.

A lovely, well equipped house in a great location in the heart of the town and with great views over the harbour.

We had a lovely stay at Chy Lowen. The house is lovely and spacious and was very comfortable. Despite being warned that the beds in the top bedroom were only suitable for children, my father inlaw was happy to be up there as he’s not a big man and it meant he had his own area and shower room. There are lovely views over the harbour and all the shops and restaurants are just a 5 minute walk down the road - probably not ideal if you have mobility issues. Everything about the house was really clear in the book and we had no problem with the facilities. I will definitely look up this cottage if we come to Falmouth again.

Chy Lowen is an ideally situated property overlooking Falmouth town and harbour. It's a 5 minute walk away from the high street with plenty of shops, pubs, restaurants, cafes etc to choose from, and then around 15-20 minute walk from Castle and Gyllyngvase beach which was ideal for us. We did find the layout a little odd with no toilet on the "ground floor" with the living room and kitchen, and then bathrooms and bedrooms on the lower one, and the terrace leads out from this floor too so would be a bit awkward to have a meal outside, but still a nice outdoor space to have. The house is a little old fashioned in places but overall comfortable and has everything you need. The location is definitely the best thing about the property, with good parking for two cars also a big plus. Wonderful views to check the weather and sea conditions for the day from the living room. Thanks for a lovely stay.

We're so pleased you had a lovely stay and thanks so much for sharing your review. We'd love to welcome you back again soon. Julie, Customer Support

Beautiful location, stunning views. Would not recommend using the garage if your car has a slightly lower suspension. Hopefully the owners will replace the mattresses soon as this is the only point putting us off staying again.

Thanks so much for your feedback and we'll certainly share your thoughts with the owners. We hope you enjoyed the fabulous views from the property. Julie, Customer Support

Chy Lowen is an ideal spot to enjoy the many great things about Falmouth.

We enjoyed our stay at Chy Lowen. We travelled by train and the property is within walking distance of Falmouth Town station. Also it is only a short walk to the town centre. Some people might find it hilly but that is what Falmouth is like. Not a problem for us. The house is bright and well decorated and nicely appointed with good views over the harbour.

A very comfortable and well equipped house in close proximity to the high street with all the shops and restaurants, and the two beaches. Highly recommend.

Very comfortable and well equipped house. Excellent view and location.

A quiet cottage with a stunning view

Wonderful location. Very clean and well equipped. Fascinating views. Excellent broadband that could easily support a Smart TV.

Lovely house ,lovely location would love to return.

We have been visiting Chy Lowen since 2014 and find it a fantastic house for our needs. At the end of a cul du sac it is very quiet, yet is close to the town for everything you need. The house has a garage so there are no concerns about parking and the view over the harbour provides great entertainment.

We spent a wonderful week in the cottage, which fulfilled all our expectation. We enjoyed all the commodities as well as the stunning views over the harbor and the various offers of the town.

Overall very good, great location and views across the harbour, but garage door lock needs to be sorted soon.

Thanks so much for your review. We're so pleased you loved the location and the great views across the harbour. Thanks for letting us know about the garage door during your stay and glad you were still able to use it. The owners will be looking to replace the lock in the future. We very much hope to welcome you back again. Kelsey, Customer Support

A wonderful stay at Chy Lowen, we would absolutely recommend it without hesitation. A great location (2 minute walk to high street) and the house was clean and homely. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Excellent for family get-together because very good kitchen and lounge facilities but also space for separate quiet time .

Full marks to housekeeping. It was very clean and felt very Covid safe. It is a beautiful cottage with wonderful views. It suited us perfectly.

Excellent views of the harbour and close to attractions in the town. We could have sat all day watching the world go by from the living area. Would recommend Restaurants down by the Maritime museum.

This is a beautiful property in a fantastic location, just a stones throw away from the high street but in a quiet street. I became addicted to watching the comings and goings of the boats in the harbour! The property is very clean and well equipped, I would love to stay here again!

Wonderful holiday home, beautiful views across the harbour. Stunning church with harbour and boats, very serene.

Very pleased with our stay at Chy Lowen and would certainly be happy to revisit and recommend

Chy Lowen is a well appointed and equipped cottage with wonderful views over the harbour and estuary conveniently located in the centre of Falmouth with easy access to the centre of town and access to ferry boats and beaches. Three is plenty to do and places to eat in Falmouth but the house has enough space and comfort to relax, enjoy the views and self cater if that suits.

As previously stated this is superb house in an excellent position with a three minute walk into Falmouth high street.

Property and location were perfect. Thanks a lot for such great holidays.

We all absolutely loved our stay at Chy Lowen. It’s a beautiful cottage, clean and bright with exceptional views. The High Street being just a hop and a skip away was perfect too. We look forward to visiting Chy Lowen again sometime.

Thank you for your review of Chy Lowen - we're really pleased you liked this property with wonderful views over the harbour and the towns facilites nearby. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Alison, Customer Support

This was our 5th visit and we had a great holiday once again. Above all this is a property with great views over Falmouth harbour giving interest both day and night. We look forward to visiting again

This is a spacious, light house in an excellent location for Falmouth town centre - we loved it!

I've stayed in many self catering properties, some of which have been truly exceptional for location, comfort and value for money. I put Chy Lowen (992) at the top of that group. Assuming Falmouth's steep hills aren't an issue (if they are, don't go there), what's not to like about a property situated on a quiet 'no through road', great views, allocated parking and only a two minute walk to the shops, pubs and ferry? All the rooms are big, well equipped and are warm and comfortably furnished. We were staying out of season, but even so we thought a week's stay was remarkable value (except that the parking permit fell off the car dashboard and we ended up with three parking tickets in two days for failing to display the permit - it's an allocated bay, no one else can park there but.........oh well a £105 lesson learned).
It's understandable that the beds in one of the twin rooms are described as suitable only for children. However, one of our party was happy to take that room because it effectively gave him the top floor, including a bathroom, all to himself. He's in his late fifties and if he can do it........worth asking, is all I'm saying. Falmouth is a great place and the locals are lovely. My favourite pub was the Oddfellows (100yards). Breakfast in Fuel (150yards) will set you up nicely (try the pancakes). The Maritime Museum is expensive and probably not worth the money.....all a bit child orientated. Check out the ferries - great fun.

We loved this property for its home from home feel and location.

A very comfortable and well equipped property in a great location - literally five minutes walk from the High Street. Great view of the "big boats" in the Harbour to. For me, it was a magic balance - in the middle of town but felt very private.

Chy lowen is a beautiful, well equipped cottage with outstanding views with the added bonus of off steet parking. The property is within easy walking distance to its many shop's, pub's and restaurants.

We loved the quirky layout of the house and it had everything we could possibly need for our stay. The upper floor was a big hit with two teenage boys who felt like they had their own little flat as it gave them space to do their own thing. We couldn't fault the cottage itself.

We loved the house and the amazing views over the harbour. Its position just above the main street is ideal. The garage and extra parking space is a great bonus.

A beautiful house with a breathtaking view over the harbour. Easy access to the town and perfect for explore all beautiful and great sights of Cornwall. An excellent location, highly recommended !

Chy Lowen is in a perfect location in Falmouth. Easy access to the shops, pubs and restaurants and for walks on the South West coast path and surrounding area. Ideal for groups of friends with the numerous bathrooms and plentiful living space. You can easily spend the whole day sitting in the bay window overlooking the harbour. All in all a perfect base to explore Falmouth, it felt like home from home.

Lovely cottage with great location, views, third visit and will probably visit again

Simply, a great cottage in an excellent location.

A great location for exploring Falmouth and the surrounding area. Lots of restaurants nearby and supermarkets if you decide to eat in. A very well-equipped, clean and comfortable property. Bring a long lens for your camera, if you have one - the views from the property over the harbour are amazing!

We enjoyed the beautiful view to Falmouth harbour and the short ways to beaches, harbour and shopping mile

Excellent location with all amenities within reach; a place that is full of light and space. We wished we could have stayed for longer!

A lovely cottage with great views, in a very convenient location. Plenty to see and do in the beautiful surrounding area, without even having to get in your car.

We loved this cottage from the moment we walked in. It is homely, welcoming, has gorgeous views and is ideally located. The photographs don't really do it justice.

It's great to hear that you had such a wonderful holiday. Thanks for your comments on the photos - we'll have a look to see if they can be updated, but we're happy if guests find the reality even better than the photos! Tanya, Customer Support

As we are from Perth in Western Australia to us Chy Lowen represented everything we could have asked for in an English Cottage by the sea in beautiful Cornwall. The position on the hill overlooking the harbour and the wonderful church bells ringing was just lovely. We had a great weeks stay and it felt like a home away from home rather than a holiday cottage.

Very lovely comfortable house that you feel very much at home in and the view is stunning

A light, airy and sunny cottage, well located on quiet road just up from centre of town with flexible and comfortable accommodation and parking. A truly "home from home" holiday gem!

Superb views, quiet location.

Have used your company for many years for properties in and around Falmouth. It's central location was the main reason for choosing. Good for nightlife, the view and easy walking access to the beachfront. The garage was a bonus. Service and property were faultless as usual.

Our group had a very pleasant stay here at Chy Lowen, we had concerns about the church bells we soon got use to the steps down to town centre

Reply from Classic Cottages

Thanks for your review of Chy Lowen; as you found, the church bells only chime between the hours of 8am and 10pm, so don't have too much of an effect on most people's sleep. There are some steep shortcuts down steps into the town, but for a slightly more gentle descent you can follow the road along and downhill to the hub of the town. Tanya, Customer Support

We all had a fantastic and comfortable holiday at Chy Lowen, accomodation was exceptionally high, views of Falmouth Harbour to die for and, not only that, we had moderately good weather for the week only spoilt by some drizzle on the Thursday.

The proximity of the property to the shops and ferries (a short walk downhill) meant that we could leave the car in the garage and do our bit for the environment.

The only, minor, down side was that the bells of the church opposite chimed the hour from 8.00am to 10.00pm daily but we soon got used to them and eventually ignored them. They may be a nuisance to light sleepers.

Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
