Chy an Bara is a beautiful 18th Century Listed cottage in the heart of Madron, a pastoral village set above Penzance and Mount's Bay. The rustic, semi-detached cottage is an ideal retreat for guests looking to explore the beaches, moorlands and ancient monuments nearby; Lanyon Quoit, Madron holy well and Chysauster to name but a few.

Cosy and warm with a roaring wood-burner in the sitting-room, Chy an Bara has a well-equipped kitchen/diner also on the ground floor, and upstairs the family bathroom is set between two light and airy bedrooms. Most rooms have original window seats, too.

Outside the south-west facing, enclosed, walled patio is a sun-trap with plenty of space to enjoy the rays whilst enjoying a well-deserved break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

A trip to far west Cornwall is not complete without visiting both Land's End and Sennen Cove. Elsewhere, The Minack Theatre, even if you don't stay and watch a show, is worth the trip for the views alone. Porthcurno Beach is delightful and there is a fascinating museum there, the only one in the UK dedicated to Global Communications. Penzance is home to the famous Art Deco Lido, book in early for a swim in this sea water pool or the geothermal pool and grab a reviving coffee in the café afterwards.

Mousehole and Newlyn are a short drive away and the narrow and quirky streets well worth exploring - seek out one of the many tempting cafés or restaurants and enjoy some fresh fish, a proper pasty or a tasty ice cream. However you spend your time, this area won't disappoint as there is something for everyone with beaches galore, historic houses and gardens or maybe even a day trip to the Isles of Scilly, you are sure to have memorable holiday.
