Looking down to Chy Lowen from the grassy park above...look at those wonderful views!
The dual-aspect sitting-room is very light and welcoming.
The dining-table sits in the window bay.
The open-plan dining/kitchen-area.
The double bedroom on the lower ground floor (Bedroom 1).
The seaward exterior of Chy Lowen, seen from the street below along with the terrace also with amazing views (please be aware the grassy area is not part of the property).
The road outside is a quiet residental dead end road so has little passing traffic.
The bay window provides a fabulous vantage point.
A coal-effect electric fire for cosy evenings in cooler months.
The view from the sitting-room (binoculars provided!).
What a wonderful view to enjoy as you gather for meals.
The view from the dining-area (the church clock does not strike at night!).
The kitchen-area is light and bright and fully equipped.
The double bedroom has a door out to the terrace (Bedroom 1).
This bedroom has an en suite wet-room (Bedroom 1).
The twin bedroom on the lower ground floor (Bedroom 2).
Plenty of light floods into the twin bedroom (Bedroom 2).
A nice deep bath for soaking in after a day exploring.
The lovely big family bathroom has a claw-foot bath and a big walk-in shower cubicle.
The shower head has both spray and waterfall functions.
The sitting-area on the first floor.
Steep stairs lead down from the first floor (please take care with children).
Plenty of books and games to keep everyone occupied.
There is a little kitchen-area tucked away beside the dresser on the first floor, and a shower-room too, making this an almost self-contained floor for added independence.
The views from the sitting-area on the first floor.
Harbour views from the top floor windows.
The bedroom on the top floor is the perfect hideaway (Bedroom 3).
The terrace catches the morning sun and is accessed via the lower ground floor either from the hall or master bedroom.
Even the bathroom has an amazing view!
Swanpool beach is just along from Gyllyngvase.
The garage fits a medium sized car (such as a golf).
The extra car parking space is also suitable for a medium sized car (such as a golf).
Looking from Gyllyngvase towards Pendennis Castle.
Gyllyngvase beach is less than a mile away.
Perhaps hop on the ferry to Flushing and see if you can spot Chy Lowen from the beach (looking back at Falmouth).

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.
