  • "Nice quirky cottage close to coastal path and good bus routes."

    Very nice views to rear of property, perhaps some raised decking would be good.

  • "Comfortable cottage with sea views at the back."

    Enclosed front and back gardens ideal for dogs and children. Within easy reach of Sennen, St Ives and Penzance. On coastal bus route. Well equipped kitchen, four double bedrooms ( furniture rather sparse if that sort of thing bothers you). Effective heating in all rooms if coming out of season. Owner very friendly and responsive. Would stay again if coming to this part of Cornwall.

    Cottage was well equipped, parking was good, directions and info from owner and landlady helpful and friendly but cottage was a bit dark and dingy with very low ceilings

  • "Certainly value for money, this cottage suited us for its location near to the coastal path, and easy parking."

    the bedrooms were cramped, with no bedside cabinets and little storage space, and the stairs were uneven and odd. we got fed up with banging our heads on the beam going up and manoeuvring to get down, so if you are tall, be aware. one bedroom had a shower unit accessed from beside the bed, which was strange, and the ‘main’ bathroom was only accessible through the kitchen. so, a bit odd really, however, an excellent water and heating system, plus a nice wood burning stove helped, but our over all impression was a bit make-shift. we were a small party and coped, but a full house would be quite a squeeze. Pendeen has basic but good facilities. 5/10

    Thank you for your comments. I would like to highlight that the property is a 19th century building which is over 200 years old. The property has been fully renovated. Going up the stairs and entering the kitchen, you may have to duck, height depending but there are visible signs displayed to that affect. We are pleased to see you had enjoyed you stay. Again, thank you very much for your comments and for taking the time to let us know your thoughts. Customer feedback is very important to help us continually improve our standards. Property Owner

  • "Cottage was lovely, clean and well equipped and we totally enjoyed our stay."

    The following are recommendations/suggestions that may or may not be useful, that may help other guests staying at the cottage. The ceilings are quite low on the stairwell to the kitchen and up the stairs and three of our party hit their heads many times!. I wondered if it would not be possible to put up some kind of visual warning on the lowest parts to remind taller people to remember to lower their heads before using the stairs/steps, we eventually did remember but do think this would be helpful to taller guests. Key to rear gate would have been useful to allow access rather than going out roadside all the time, but perhaps this is locked for a reason.

    Thank you very much for your valued comments and glad to see you enjoyed your stay. You will be delighted to know that we now have such signs displayed in the relevant areas. Property Owner

  • "We have just returned from a fabulous stay in Chi Lowen."

    The cottage comfortably fitted 5 adults and 1 teenager. We enjoyed having meals at the table, chilling in the cozy sitting room and sitting outside watching the amazing sunsets. We loved discovering Portheras beach and exploring the mines. Pendeen is within easy access of St Ives and Penzance. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

  • "We had a really wonderful holiday at Chi Lowen."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean, good amenities, and our highlight was the wonderful view of the sea in the back garden. It’s a great location for exploring this part of Cornwall if you have a car, there is so much to see within a 20 drive of the property. Finally the owner was thoughtful enough to leave some nibbles for our arrival which was a lovely touch and much appreciated. We would love to return!

The property

On a road that many consider to be one of the finest drives in the UK, you will find on the south-west coast of Cornwall the village of Pendeen, home to this delightful holiday home Chi Lowen.

A traditional granite cottage beautifully renovated to bring it perfectly into the 21st century, it is host to four bedrooms and features outstanding views out to the sea, perfectly suited to a couple or group of avid walkers because of the proximity to the coastal path.

Enter the cottage after a fun-filled day and move into the sitting room to put on the woodburning stove, set in the middle of a vibrant orange fireplace, complementing the rooms decor and the sofas beautifully, a great place to unwind with a glass of wine.

When it's time to prepare the evening meal, follow the chef into the kitchen/diner and sit at the long farmhouse style bench oak table and be impressed when dinner is served.

The kitchen is equipped with every appliance you will need, and looks out of the back of the property overlooking the sea.

An enclosed gravelled patio area lies to the back with seating, so you can come out and enjoy your morning coffee and watch the world wake up as you do before this gorgeous vista.

When it's time to rest your head at night, the first-floor is home to four bedrooms; two king-size, one of which has an en-suite shower, and two doubles, each with rustic exposed granite stone walls and wooden ceiling beams.

all of which are served by a first-floor WC and hand basin, and the family bathroom found on the ground-floor with a WC, hand basin, bath and shower over.

Being in the centre of the quaint coastal village of Pendeen means you have pubs and shops on your doorstep, as well as various small local businesses with fresh local produce.

Take advantage of the proximity to the coastal path and walk alongside the sea to experience some stunning scenery and landscapes, and stop along some of the most picturesque coves and landmarks.

You are near to the famous Land's End where you can enjoy a great day out with the family, or head over to the popular town of Penzance, move further to Marazion and walk up to St Michael's Mount when the tide is out.

Chi Lowen is a beautifully presented traditional cottage that you will love returning to after exploring the amazing Cornish coast.

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