  • "Beautiful property set in the countryside which suited our needs exactly."

    We’ve booked to go back the same time next year as there is still plenty to do and see in the area. That probably sums it up . . . .

  • "We found Little Chygowlin a beautiful small cottage set in lovely grounds."

    It was very peaceful and a great place to relax. It is very comfortable and well equipped with everything needed. The cream tea left for us on arrival is a really nice touch. Its location made it easy to visit several different places and attractions in Cornwall without having to travel too far. We would definitely recommend this cottage to friends and family.

  • "We were very impressed with this cottage and gardens, the pictures don’t do it justice."

    Very quiet location which was fabulous and it had everything we needed and wanted. Would definitely recommend this cottage the only downside was the very uneven private road leading to the cottage.

  • "Gorgeous little cottage, in splendid isolation, down a track about a mile long."

    Does share gardens with a bigger holiday cottage, but on this occasion, we were on our own. Steps, down to the bedroom and bathroom, are quite steep and would pose difficulty to anyone with a mobility issue. TV has a reception issue with any BBC channel but then we spent a lot of time out and so, as far as we were concerned, wasn't an issue. Finally, we did have a painter & decorator, on site, while we were here. Apparently we should have been informed of this by the letting agents but we didn't receive any such email. However we didn't have an issue with him being on site as we spent most of our time, out. The gentleman, infact, was an invaluable source of local information and we got on with him very well, I think he appreciated that we let him get on as he's been trying to decorate this property for a while but some of the clients have been less inclined to allow him on site.

  • "This is a very comfortable and well equipped cottage, cosy and warm."

    Although adjoined to the main house it is not apparent that the bathroom and bedroom can be easily overlooked from people going to the house and from their windows. May we suggest that a tray/box be available as you enter for muddy/wet boots etc. Please provide water glasses the size suitable for G&T / fruit juice etc. The access track from the road has an atrocious surface with many deep pot holes and loose rubble.

    Many thanks for completing your feedback, both the bedroom and bathroom have wooden shutters which can be closed when required. The owner will look to provide some larger glasses. It is made clear on the website that the access road is an unmade lane and not suitable for all cars. Property Owner

  • "Lovely welcome with flowers and cream tea."

    Cottage was very clean and well equipped, heating and hot water in abundance, The bathroom was very luxurious and bed very comfortable. A few minor niggles. Could do with some hooks to hang outside coats, especially if wet. Wifi password was incorrect for network available, left message about this with Michelle but no response, fortunately 4G coverage was good enough so didn't pursue. A more comfortable sofa with addition of a coffee table would be good. Surprised to find cottage was a wing of the larger house, and garden was beautiful and spacious but shared. Would recommend the property except for the access road. We were warned that lowered vehicles would have a problem, but only a tractor could drive down it effectively. Suggest the owners experience the numerous giant potholes for a week and see how they feel.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and found the property to be well equipped and very comfortable. Thank you for bringing these points to our attention. We have now added the WiFi code to the key collection details, for convenience, and we can also confirm that a new sofa is being purchased. In reference to the access road mentioned, as stated on the website details, the property is accessed via an unmade lane and may not be suitable for low slung vehicles. Caution and care is best taken, as in most rural areas. Property Owner

  • "This cottage was exactly what we were looking for and was described in the listing very accurately."

    It was quiet peaceful and above all very private but within easy reach of all local amenities and attractions. On arrival the accommodation was spotlessly clean and extremely well presented with every imaginable appliance/gadget available to ensure a comfortable stay. The quality of furnishings and fittings were of a very high standard with an exceptionally comfortable bed and superbly appointed bathroom again with very high quality fittings. A log burner with all the necessary equipment was, once mastered, a very cosy addition on chilly evenings although the whole property benefitted from underfloor heating which was very efficient. The cottage also benefits from extensive outside gardens and paddock for our dog. Fresh flowers with scones/cream and jam was a nice welcoming touch as was milk tea and coffee etc. This property was perfect in our opinion and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it for a wonderful quiet and peaceful break, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. My only other comment (not a criticism) would be to provide a folder with instructions on certain equipment within the property ie log burner, heating system and heated towel rail. Also to include the location of local amenities ie pubs restaurants and shops and also the wifi password. Overall a very satisfied customer.

  • "Lovely, cleverly converted little property with great facilities in a beautifully peaceful setting."

    Steven, the gardener, was a pleasure to meet and Alfie, our Lab, had a ball exploring the grounds.The National Trust's Trelissick is nearby for great dog walks and Truro is in very easy reach for shopping/restaurants/theatre, etc. Such a relaxing stay.
