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!

August 2017

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

June 2017

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

February 2017

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.

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

July 2014

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

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.
