  • "Lovely ground floor flat situated in a quiet lane close to Polgoon Vineyard just outside of Penzance."

    Great location for easy access to Penzance and the Penwith Penninsula. The flat was modern, tastefully decorated with good facilities. Parking is adjacent to the front door and is suitable for 1 large vehicle or two very small vehicles. Access is via a narrow private road. The owners live on site and the flat lis fully maintained by Sykes. We experienced a minor maintainence issue and this was promptly resolved by Skye’s with the owner also following up to ensure “all was well”. We visited just before Christmas and felt the flat was “great value for money”. We would happily rebook at this location.

  • "This property is situated just off the A30 at Penzance towards Lands End,next to the Polgoon vineyard on a track to the Castle Horneck Youth Hostel."

    This track is badly maintained with large potholes before turning right onto another track to the property which can only be described as a glorified farm track just wide enough for 1 car.The photos are misleading as the place where the picnic table is situated is where you park the car,and the wooden structure is the owners garden shed which is next to the kitchen window. The property itself was clean and comfortable,but being a basement apartment suffers from condensation meaning you have to open all the windows in the morning or come back to a fusty smelling property,and has a dehumidifier running in one of the bedrooms to try to combat this.The stream at the side of the property and woodland probably doesn’t help with this.This property also has no proper rubbish bins meaning you have to separate all your rubbish into different coloured rubbish sacks and leave them outside.Penzance has excellent transport links with a mainline railway station with the bus station and tourist information next to it.It also has a fantastic promenade with a heated open air swimming pool at one end,or just behind the railway station is a walking/cycling path to Marazion where St Micheal’s mount is.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased that you managed to see so many of the great attractions around West Cornwall during your stay. We are please to report that since your visit the weather has allowed us to replace the surface of the lane and road approaching Chydour. We love being next to the river however with this comes moisture in the air. We do all we can to minimise the effect on Chydour, including a dehumidifier. Guest are welcome to turn this off while using the property. Property Owner

  • "The photos didnot show that the appartement was in the basement of the main house."

    One bedroom has no windows at all, there is a airfreshener which has to stay on all the time. The television is hanging to high and you have to twist your neck to look at it. We had lovely weather but there was no possibility to sit outside. The view from the high windows is on grasslevel of the mail house. The appartement is close to the town, and it is a great location to visit the south of Cornwall

    Thank you for leaving your constructive feedback. Chydour is perfectly described as a ground floor apartment. You are correct that 1 bedroom has no windows, we personally feel this is great for children as you can totally blackout the room. The owner has taken the comments on board in relation to the position of the TV and has lowered this since your visit. The outdoor space is limited and guests do not have access to the owners garden, however a small table and chairs has been carefully positioned to allow for some al fresco time. There are also some lovely woodland surrounding the cottage that guests are free to wander. Property Owner

  • "Hello Whilst the property is of a high standard i."

    E comfortable bed, dishwasher, washer dryer, beautiful decor etc we feel that we have to mention a big negative that we encountered on a daily basis during our stay. Although the weather was reasonable the outside single track lane to the property was in a terrible state, having many large and deep potholes and areas of mud. Due to having to reverse out every time we had an excursion we were not happy to navigate deep potholes which we could not avoid hitting (some water filled). Our vehicle suffered inside and out necessitating a valet on our return. We came home 24 hours early as heavy rain was forecast the next day which would have impacted even more on the condition of the single track lane to the property. It should also be noted that the 'sitting out' area is totally shaded and there are quite a few cars and vans going up and down the lane in very close proximity which felt uncomfortable. Anyone unable to reverse their vehicle would struggle to use the parking space allocated next to this property. We feel the photo does not reflect the lane and sitting out area and we have to ask Sykes to review this. Thank you.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you found Chydour and its amenities comfortable and to a high standard. Our rural cottage is in a beautiful woodland location and the recent unseasonal weather has affected the lane up to the property. We are very pleased to report that the surface of the lane is scheduled for full replacement as soon as good weather allows and repairs are regularly made after severe rain in the meantime.

  • "This was, by far, the nicest bnb we've ever stayed in."

    The place was spotless, smelled clean and the beds were comfy. The towels and bedding were good quality, adequate heating was supplied, all kitchen needs were met and there was even a bath! Outside, a stream with little waterfalls rushed past the front door and beautiful trees filled our view with b birds singing all day. The smallest negative is that I felt bad using somebody else's driveway to turn my car around. This comfortable place was good value and was the perfect base for day trips or a walk into Penzance.

    Thanks for your feedback, we are so glad you loved Chydour. Property Owner

  • "Had a lovely holiday at Chydour visiting our usual favourite places around Penzance."

    The apartment was very clean and comfortable and scones and cream on arrival a nice touch.However it was quite difficult to turn car round in narrow lane outside until kind neighbour said we could use her drive.So I think this should be noted in write up as we only had smallish vehicle.Also somewhere to sit outside of a evening would have been nice.

    Thank you for your feedback, we will look into this and review the arrival instructions. We are glad to hear you had a nice stay and hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

Penzance hosts Golowan, the Midsummer Carnival, and The Literary Festival. There are also The Exchange, Newlyn and Penlee Art Galleries. One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas is the spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, the coastline hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves as well as winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by a causeway to the shore at Marazion is the National Trust’s stunningly beautiful St Michael’s Mount with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens. Walk across at low water and take one of the ferry boats back when the tide is up. Penzance with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must as it is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Isles of Scilly as well as being the harbor. The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops towards Land’s End. On the way, stop off for a coffee and a rest at beautiful Lamorna Cove, explore the open air Minack Theatre and marvel at the cliffs as you approach Gwennap Head. A stunning walk for those seeking solitude, exercise and some of the UK’s best coastal scenery. Penzance is the perfect holiday base. Ideally placed for exploring this land of Celtic myth and legend and with enough to do and see in the immediate area to keep all the family occupied.
