In the heart of a quintessential Cornish village and only 500 yards from the sea you will find the charming Chyvean. Nestled in Gunwalloe on the Lizard peninsula, this delightful semi-detached property is set in the perfect position to explore this unspoilt part of Cornwall. Pretty Church Cove can be found along the coast path or a very short drive, and you are only a 10 minute walk from a fabulous pub too. If you want to explore a little further hop onto the South West Coast Path to discover foodie heaven at Porthleven and the fabulous beach and cafe at Poldhu or venture even further if you are feeling adventurous!

The bright blue door at Chyvean opens into a welcoming hallway, and you will feel a wave of relaxation wash over you as soon as you enter. The open plan living space is lovely and light, making this a great place to relax together. The cosy wood-burner is perfect for the cooler months or even after a swim in the sea to warm your cockles and the dining-table has plenty of room for you and friends to join.

The kitchen looks out over the enclosed patio which catches the morning and lunchtime sun, perfectly positioned for a long lazy lunch. The family bathroom is found at the back of the property on the ground floor, and has a bath and shower attachment. There is also a fabulous hot and cold outdoor shower to rinse those sandy toes and a muddy dog after a day out exploring this stunning part of Cornwall.

Upstairs you will find the three fabulous bedrooms all with hand-made mattresses from the south west of England for a true feeling of luxury. Each bedroom has a lovely outlook over fields and the countryside beyond, lie in bed and listed to the birdsong on your holiday, what a lovely way to wake for the day.

In addition to the patio, there is also a lawned area at the front of the property as well as parking for three cars on the gravel drive.

Although you are tucked away in the heart of Cornwall no luxuries have gone amiss at this newly refurbished property, with superfast fibre WiFi, exceptionally comfortable sofas and beds and a Smart TV, along with a cot and high chair (available on request), you will be in for a treat when you stay at Chyvean. This is a great base from which to explore the rest of Cornwall, only a short drive from a main road you can reach many famous hotspots easily such as St Ives, Falmouth and Land's End however it is the perfect base to just sit back and relax in too.
