  • "The house and garden were fantastic and we would very happily go again, including at Christmas if it wasn’t already booked!"

    The location is also perfect for Truro, Falmouth and west Cornwall. Our only problem was that when the cooker stopped working no one from the west Cornwall branch of the management company responded to our midday call or the message we left. We fixed it ourselves that evening, fortunately. Otherwise, a top class property!

  • "This was our second year staying here."

    We loved the property so much we also hired out the adjoining cottage for our parents to stay in. The children love the garden and the layout of the house means everyone has plenty of space and their own bathroom. It is absolutely everything you want a family holiday house to be and the local toiletries and scones on arrival are really nice touches.

  • "The cottage very very good everything was clean and tidy we all loved it the large garden was great for the kids to run round the only downside was the weather, hopefully we will be back there next year."

    We all loved it great

  • "All as lovely as last year and thank you for filling the potholes!"

    Wifi issue (BT problem not the house) was dealt with well and they checked on us regularly to ensure it was getting sorted. But not a huge deal in such an amazing setting with so many other things to do. We were able to create some more precious family memories.

  • "This was our second stay and we would like to return next year."

    The only issue we found was that the internet connection to the wifi was not available due to an external fault and we happened to require a good network connect to work (as well as play) during our stay. The owners were understanding and as such we came to an agreement. Make sure your dogs have tick treatment too, it’s that time of year I guess and we had a visit to the vets whilst there. The gardens are maintained well, but long grasses on the edges still pose an issue when your furry friends brush up against them (this is not the owners fault, happens everywhere) Other than that, it was a great stay! During the stay we had seen in the gardens two road deer, a large eagle, a retuning green woodpecker, squirrels, bunnies and pheasants (I hope I spelt that correctly and not the other!)

  • "We have stayed here before with another company (who I must say were more attentive than Sykes) that aside, we knew what to expect."

    A lovely surprise with the opening up of the additional bedroom, my son used it and was very pleased to have somewhere to do his work on the spacious desk.But, no thought has been given about the quantity of crockery, cutlery, cooking vessels no that the house can sleep 8, with the opening of this lovely bedroom. We tried a 'toast' on new years eve and there were only a few champagne glasses. This house is so right in so many ways but I do think that the kitchen inventory needs updating. My only gripe was the nasty neighbour, who had a go at my young son last time we stayed in 2020 for being out on the driveway, (he was aged 19!) this time we put balloons up at the end of the drive for 2-3 hours so that my elderly parents could find the opening between the hedges in the dimming light, he not only knocked on the door to ask us to remove them, when we asked if they could stay until mid afternoon, he agreed then promptly removed them! I consequently stood at the end of the drive for a hour in the rain waiting! it was unhelpful, and unnecessary, we were a family not a bunch of hooligans. He also annoyed us bringing his digger down to where our cars were parked and scaring all the moss off the parking areas, he worked away for ages churning up all the mud as it was very, very wet, we couldn't get from car to house without trampling it everywhere. A very thoughtless gentleman indeed who obviously does not like holiday makers.

    All perfect. Fantastic grounds. A perfect holiday home for the festive season. Was very grateful that a Christmas tree and lights were provided.

  • "Our 3rd stay at Chygowlin and it was as good as ever."

    Love this place, it really is our favourite place to be. Everything just feels right about this property. Absolutely spotless on arrival - shout out to the lady who does the cleaning and a mid holiday change of bed linen too. If we ever win the lottery we would make an offer but not much chance of that happening, unfortunately. Far enough off the beaten track for peace and quite yet not far from loads of great places to visit. Hoping to return soon - although the price has risen quite significantly since Sykes took over from Classic Cottages.

  • "Chygowlin House."

    ...what an amazing place to stay. This is the second time we've stayed there & we now consider it our Holiday Home!!! It's pretty much the perfect location - off the beaten track but not that far from all the essentials & it's fairly centrally located to see the numerous sights of Cornwall. We'll definitely be back again - the only thing that could improve the facilities is a hot tub!!!!

    The house was perfect with beautiful gardens. The kitchen was well stocked. Toilet rolls, a kitchen roll and extra tea towels would have been welcome but this didn’t deter from a wonderful holiday. Would certainly recommend to friends and family

  • "A lovely private getaway for the family and furry friends!"

    You’re really out there away from all! The house was comfy and spacious and the grounds were well kept. If you’re lucky, which we were, we spotted deer, foxes, pheasants and rabbits. At night, take a torch for a walk around as it doesn’t get any darker (this was great as no light made it even better for star gazing!). I would definitely love to book again.

  • "This is a beautiful property with fabulous well kept gardens, a large family kitchen and dining room, and spacious lounge."

    The beds are comfortable and the outlook from all the rooms is onto the garden. The garden is NOT a shared garden with the adjoining property as a previous tenant had said, which caused a little discomfort as our neighbours that week thought it was (courtesy of that review) and rather spoilt our privacy for the first three days. The access road is a challenge, but the property is the reward. We had a deer in the garden and saw or heard various birds (owls at night) and the children had plenty of room to play in. All in all a total success.

There's no shortage of relaxing spots to sit, the conservatory offers a quiet spot for reading or working from home, or simply watch the birds and the wildlife.

Outside, children can roam freely in the enclosed garden whilst the adults relax on the sunny patio with a glass of red at hand and marvel at the sheer variety of pristinely kept shrubs and mature shady trees.

In addition there is a paddock for exercising your canine friend.
