    The large furnished patio and extensive grounds face out onto stunning Penwith moorland and the interior is both spacious and comfortable. We also had the most comprehensive Welcome Basket provided on our arrival that we’ve had anywhere which was a lovely and generous gesture. Few holiday properties warrant a return visit in the future but this is certainly one to use again when we’re next in the Penzance area. Many thanks to the owners for their hospitality and assistance.

    I am sure this is just one of the consequences of living in such a beautifully rural setting and it did not spoil our holiday

    Thank you for your feedback. The TV has now been fixed (retuned) and the WiFi can be temperamental but no guests have mentioned it before. Property Owner

    The lodge was very clean, well equipped with lots of lovely clean glasses and a great number of dinner plates, cutlery etc *which I am guessing were all new in response to an earlier review) and the space was amazing, there were 8 of us which included 2 children. It was very peaceful and the outside space was great too, especially for the dog. A very generous welcome pack was waiting for us on arrival and Nicola is on hand if you need her but leaves you to enjoy your holiday. We have stayed at the other smaller property, Carne Vue, and we felt exactly the same about that holiday. We would certainly recommend both of these holiday cottages to friends and we plan to return. Thank you Nicola and Sykes.

    The layout of the Lodge is ideal for a family get together. The Lodge had all the essentials needed to support our needs. The grandchildren had a view of the Alpachas, pony and the Rhias when outdoors much to their delight. The roads leading to the lodge are narrow but not to be phased by that as drivers are very careful and there are many passing places. A great holiday was had by all!

On each visit I have come away feeling refreshed, relaxed and I have made so many happy memories at Chywolow that I will cherish forever. My parents loved the calming feel of the place, my young boys loved the open space and animals close by, you really couldn't ask for a better place to stay. I thank you because for me and my family this is truly what holidays are made of.

    Felt still. In the middle of nowhere! Quality appliances, spacious & thought through TV in all bedrooms. Animals in the garden entertained our grandchildren no end! Plenty of sofas/chairs etc. Excellent shower facilities. Areas for improvement include more and decent cutlery. Some crockery chipped. And replacements of cloudy through constant dish washing, glasses which are horrible ascetically. Small things which detract from the ‘classines’ of the property. But overall well appointed & lovely modern home from home in a stunning setting. We loved the time spent here.

    Spacious, clean and very well equipped. We enjoyed it's location. It was in a lovely, quiet location but not too far to the shops or beach.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave this feedback. We are sorry to hear that you found the approach difficult, but unfortunately this is beyond our control as it is illegal to cut the lane hedges between March and September. With regard to the cleanliness, our housekeepers are extremely thorough and we have not previously received comments of this nature, as you will see from our feedback.

    It was absolutely beautiful, peaceful. The lodge itself had all the mod-cons and very very spacious- couldn't believe the size! All bedrooms big and with TVs. Double bedrooms were king size! Remote controlled velux windows which I thought was very cool! The lodge was very clean and due to everything going on at the moment I was feeling slightly apprehensive about staying but when we arrived and checked it all out I was so happy. The lodge was spotless and everything was cleaned to such a high standard. Lovely outdoor furniture, I often sat on the swing with my coffee in the morning. Lovely walks nearby and the beach was beautiful! Overall we had a lovely time as a family which we needed! We will definitely be looking into staying here again.

The property

With a Scandinavian style interior, Chywolow Lodge sits in the tiny hamlet of Great Bosullow within 3 miles of Penzance, is perfect for respite and for those with limited mobility.

Wheelchair friendly.

Far reaching countryside views and an incredible sense of space make this a fabulous rural retreat surrounded by beautiful moorland, Iron Age settlements and mysterious standing stones.

The property is set on a seventy acre farm and there is a field with ponies and Alpacas.

All on the ground floor, this holiday bolthole makes a great base for family and friends.

The open plan living area with kitchen, dining and sitting area is good for gatherings, relaxation and feasts.

There are four comfortable bedrooms all with TV's and one with en-suite shower room, plus a family bathroom and garden room.

The terrace is perfect for sunny breakfasts and the expanse of grass around the property is perfect for a game.

This is a walker's paradise so bring your boots and head out across the moors to the North Coast.

Nearby Pendeen has local facilities plus a pub but we recommend heading North to Gurnards Head where there is a food lover's delight; The Gurnards Head.

The nearest white sandy beach is the hidden Portheras Cove between Pendeen and Morvah but better known Sennen Cove is only a short drive west.

Penzance is 15 minutes and St Ives can be reached within 25 minutes drive, both towns are worthy of a visit with some great cafes, restaurants and galleries to peruse.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


St Ives 8 miles. Helicopter to Isles of Scilly - 30 minutes

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.
