  • "What a great holiday we had, 5 adults and two little dogs Fantastic garden for all creatures human and canine Brilliant well equipped kitchen, great showers !"

    A few low beams and doors for anyone 5' 9 or above you need to duck :) pretty much what you would expect from an old cottage

    Thank you for your valuable feedback and so pleased that all of you had a fabulous time! Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cottage, fabulous dream garden, full of character and charm."

    Lots of room for everyone, with games room at the bottom of the garden - great fun playing croquet. Good facilities, modern kitchen with huge bifold doors opening onto garden, ample bathrooms and comfy beds. The Cow Shed is a wonderful quaint conversion, with en suite. Mark was a perfect host, a cream tea and Prosecco was waiting to welcome us! Centrally situated and convenient for Truro and Falmouth. I would highly recommend this for a family to get away from it all. Loved it!

    Thank you Alexis for your kind words and for being such lovely guests! Thank you from Susie (the gardener) too! Property Owner

  • "A wonderful place with everything we could have wished for."

    A beautiful garden and spacious house with so many nice things and views to enjoy and explore. It is an excellent location from which to visit all the must-see places, and at the same time feel completely at home in Cornwall. It is a real gem. Many thanks to the owner who did everything to ensure we had such a great time at this dreamy cottage!

  • "Little Chycoose was the perfect holiday home for me and my family."

    It's a stunning house, spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. We loved sitting in the beautiful garden and playing with all the games provided. The children especially enjoyed the tree swing! The location is great and we were able to discover lots of lovely parts of Cornwall. We were planning our return trip to Little chycoose before we'd even left!

    Thank you so much for your kind words. So glad you had a lovely time and enjoyed the both the garden and house. We look forward to welcoming you back Property Owner

  • "Little Chycoose is such a gorgeous house in a beautiful setting."

    It’s so homely and comfortable - and the garden is perfect to potter and play in. Yes, there were some cobwebs, but I actually found that quite charming as I opened the original windows to let the sun in. The places that mattered (bedding, bathrooms and kitchen) were spotless. The owner was so helpful and accommodating - and the welcome pack was a generous and lovely touch. Fresh flowers, Prosecco, cream tea - what’s not to love! I was born and brought up in Cornwall and I felt perfectly at home here! Thank you for a lovely stay.

  • "Little Chycoose is a lovely house in a lovely setting but was spoiled by the poor standard of cleanliness throughout the house, including black mould around the bath and the windows, some of which we couldn't open."

    The plastic cloth covering the table in the kitchen had not been wiped for a long time and when we cleaned it showed how dirty it was by looking at the grime on the cloth that was used. This was the same for many of the touch surfaces in the house including in the cow shed and the glass topped table in the garden. We felt we had to wash every utensil, cutlery and plate before we used them. A water jug was found to have dead flies in it and there were dead flies that had not been swept away from floor space. The detergent drawer in the washing machine was filthy with brown stains encrusted inside it. This cottage has not been adequately cleaned for a long time. The whole house needs a deep clean to reach the standards we expect in a holiday cottage, never mind during a pandemic when cleaning standards are supposed to be paramount. This falls way below the standards we have come to expect in holiday cottages we have previously stayed in. If this is the standards we can expect in a Sykes Cottage we will not be booking with Sykes again.

    From Mark, Thank you for your comments and what turned out to be very good feedback indeed. We were initially shocked by your findings one of our cleaning team had tested positive on a LFT in the morning. The replacement had tried his best to do the beds and bathrooms however not being an experienced cleaner there were clearly areas that he had not addressed and other areas that he skimmed over. I am so sorry that this impacted on your holiday. The same issue happened the following week but as we did not receive this excellent and detailed feedback until after you had left, it was too late and he had completed the changeover again the next week with again disastrous consequences to our previously excellent feedback record. Please feel welcome to get in touch, you have my details and I am keen to apologise unreservedly for this to you and find a way to address your negative experience. From Sykes Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We have arranged for someone from our Quality Assurance Team to visit next month at which point the issues you have raised will be addressed. Thank you for bringing these to our attention.

    It's in need of a deep clean (cobwebs, windows, dust), some items did not function property, sleeping was uncomfortable and the outdoor furniture was shabby. I would definately not stay here again.

    This opened up the already fabulous room out onto the garden where we were able to sit and enjoy the sun with a drink.

  • "Loved loved loved our stay!"

    ! It was a really homely cosy house, and we loved the Bose speaker for music, very nice surprise! My husband and I stayed in the ‘Cow Shed’ while my parents stayed in the main house. The Cow Shed is a great little escape for couples as has a Kingsize bed and en suite in it. The owner Mark was very helpful and extremely understanding. The garden was something out if a novel with all its wild flowers. Highly recommended!!!

    Quaint characterful older areas are cosy, whilst the new parts are airy bright and modern. Well equipped kitchen enabled us to enjoy an evening meal in comfort after a day of exploring all that Cornwall wall has to offer. All in all a lovely holiday enjoyable for all the family including the 4 legged members! .

  • "I must admit the older part of cottage I found a little disappointing (not as clean and bright as pictures lead you too believe)."

    However the kitchen and above space was exactly as pictures show . Amenities worked well. Also The Cow Shed was true to pictures I did not realise this was the 4th bedroom and a walk across the yard. There was no towels or bath mat in there on arrival. We took towels over from cottage. None of this spoilt our holiday we had a lovely week while we were there and we had a most relaxing week.

  • "Little Chycoose was a fantastic base to spend a week in Cornwall."

    The cottage was spotless, the facilities excellent, and it easily accommodated six of us. It was a great base for days out cycling the old mining trails, walks on the coastal paths, pub lunches and trips further afield. In the evening we were able to spend time in the wonderfully light and spacious kitchen eating and drinking, and then retreat to the cosy lounge to watch TV before bed. The scones with clotted cream and jam when we arrived were especially welcome! I would recommend Little Chycoose to anyone looking for a place to spend a holiday in Cornwall.

  • "We had a wonderful stay in Little Chycoose for the Christmas period."

    The owner was onsite to meet and greet us, which was really helpful in terms of getting to know some of the features of the house. After such a long journey the welcome pack was much appreciated! The house was very warm and cosy when we arrived and the facilities were great, we didn't want for anything! We had friends come and join us on Christmas day, with the wonderful kitchen catering and entertaining a large group was no problem!!

  • "The house was lovely spacious and well equipped -just as it appeared on the web site - and ina very beautiful part of the world."

    The stay aas marred by an investation of flies which meant we could not keep open the beautiful sliding doors or the windows. There was an ele tric fly zapper but that was not enough to control the problem. Even sitting outside the summer house proved uncomfortable. Our very nice neighbour told us that he had never known a summer like it and wondered if a newly occupied chicken farm in the vicinity was to blame. This was obviously not the fault of the owners but it did put a blot on the holiday especially as my ausutistic granddaughter is terrified of flying insects and we had problems getting her to come out of her bedroom. The kitchenwas particually beautiful and the piano a much appreciated extra.

  • "Little Chycoose is a wonderful place to stay."

    It has ample space - the bedrooms are a good size and there are three bathrooms, which was essential for us. The kitchen is great: it is large and very well equipped. The patio doors mean you have wonderful views of the garden. The area is extremely quiet, which was also a great boon for us. There is room for three cars in the driveway, which was also great. We thought the location might mean it would take us a long time to get to the coast, but in fact it was not a problem at all, as it meant we were ideally located to go either north or south. Holywell, Crantock and Godrevy beaches were our favourites. We would not hesitate to book this property again.

  • "Wir konnten eine Woche dieses wunderschöne Cottage als unser Ferienhaus genießen."

    Mit Scones und Blumenstrauß wurde uns ein netter Empfang bereitet. Das Cottage ist sehr gut mit allem Erforderlichen ausgestattet. Kochen und Essen im modernen Anbau, Schlafen und Wohnen im gemütlichen Altbau. Dazu ein schöner Garten, Gartenhäuschen und sogar Grillmöglichkeit. Geschirrspülmaschine, Waschmaschine und Trockner sind vorhanden, natürlich auch Wifi. Das Cottage liegt zwar mitten im Nirgendwo - man könnte auch sagen in wunderschönster Landschaft - aber relativ mittig in Cornwall und daher perfekt als Ausgangspunkt für Erkundungen in alle Richtungen. Die nächsten größeren Supermärkte liegen 15 Autominuten entfernt in Turo. Wir haben uns hier mit unseren Kinder sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen gerne ein anderes Mal wieder! PS: alle Bilder stimmen 1:1!

This handsome character residence provides a relaxing escape from modern life pressures to a tranquil setting in the peaceful hamlet of Bissoe.

A spacious cottage with contemporary kitchen with a mezzanine floor and fabulous bi-fold doors taking you into the garden.

Traditional meets modern, is definitely where this property sits.

A convenience store and pub serving delicious ales and food are within a 5 minute drive.

Little Chycoose is a lovely base for exploring all parts of Cornwall.

There are a host of opportunities being under 10 miles from the beautiful beaches and dramatic cliffs of the north coast and the meandering creeks and tidal moorings of the Roseland Peninsula.

Bissoe Cycle Hire and Loe Beach Watersports Centre are all located within a 10 minute drive and it is also an excellent destination for walkers and naturalists with scenic footpaths along the nearby creeks and inlets of the Truro and Falmouth rivers, the beautiful National Trust owned woodland park at Trelissick and the sub-tropical gardens at Glendurgan and Trebah, and there is also Cornwall's spectacular global garden,The Eden Project which is always worth a visit.
