  • "This is our 3rd stay whilst visiting children."

    It is welcoming, has everything we want or need, and there a little touches that make us smile each time.

  • "Fantastic property."

    Me and my partner have stayed in multiple properties in pendra loweth but this is by far the best. The property was very clean and in fantastic condition. Also had plenty of utensils and everything we needed for our stay. Would highly recommend this property and will book this property again.

    Thank you for your feedback. The bushes in the car parking area are the responsibility of the site management. We are glad that this didn't spoil your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future. Property Owner

  • "This is our 4th visit to Chy-Nans as we have family living nearby."

    It is convenient for Falmouth and the local beaches. Internally it is clean and comfortable bur we were disappointed not to be offered a change of bedding and/or towels as we stayed in the property for 2 weeks. Externally the patio area is in need of a little tlc as it is somewhat weed infested and uninviting to sit out on.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you weren't offered a change of linen and towels, this is something we will discuss with our housekeeper. We will also ask our maintenance man if he can keep a close on weeds in the patio. We do hope that these two things won't deter you from returning for another visit in the future. Property Owner

  • "Property was comfortable and well equipped."

    Location was great and convenient. Initially wasn't sure about the fact that it was a holiday village but it was quiet and the facilities were good. Only complaint is the WiFi. The speed was terrible. 0.3Mb per second download speed. It would barely load a web page. This is not really acceptable. We restarted the router a number of times but had not joy. I am not sure if it should be more or if there is something wrong with the setup. Anyway, it should not be advertised as having WiFi with these speeds. Or at least tell us that the speeds are slow so we can come prepared. Thanks

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback. We are sorry that you experienced some difficulties with the Wi-Fi during your stay. We haven't received any previous comments regarding the Wi-Fi . We have just come back from the property ourselves and the Wi-Fi worked fine during our stay. Aside from this we are glad that you enjoyed the property and its location. UPDATE: Following your feedback, we have now had a new router installed at the property, so any issues should now be resolved. Property Owner

  • "We booked the property for two weeks and were disappointed that a change of bedding and towels were not provided for the second week."

    We change bedding and towels at home once a week and would have liked to do the same when on holiday.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback. Please accept our apologies that you were not offered a change of bedding and towels, this was clearly an oversight which will discuss with our housekeepers. We do hope aside from this that you had an enjoyable stay. Property Owner

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our week - helped by some lovely weather."

    The 'garden village' location was peaceful and attractive, though we were there out of the main season. We found the property was sufficiently accessible for someone like my wife who uses a walking aid, though it isn't intended to be fully disabled accessible. If necessary use the entrance on the opposite side to where the parking space is located, as that has a ramp. We did find on our arrival that the kettle was not working - this I checked was not due to the plug fuse. However, this was not a major issue, as we could use the microwave for hot drinks. There seems to be some confusion as to the required departure time. The information sent with the key collection details stated 9 am whereas information at the property stated 10 am

  • "Bad experience as there was a generator outside my bedroom for a few nights."

    I really loved the accommodation, it was lovely. I was reimbursed for the inconvenience which was great. I was given less than 24 hours to leave the property as apparently I was not allowed to stay there as I was going to work from the property. I found this really strange as I was not doing any different than holiday makers. They leave in the morning for a day out and come back in the evening. I asked for a refund for the week as I was not allowed to stay for my second week I had already paid for.....nope, no refund. Not a good service and I will make sure people know about it.

    Thank you for your feedback. It does state in the property description that bookings for anything other than holiday or leisure are not permitted. Unfortunately this seemed to have been missed by yourself. We are glad to hear of your positive comments on the accommodation. - The Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "The cottage and site were lovely with lots of equipment supplied with regard to home comforts."

    We had a good week with lovely weather as we used this as a base and was out most days. However there were disappointing things. We had a problem with a slightly unclean quilt cover and emailed Cornish Cottage holidays as the office was closed over the weekend, who didn’t even reply to our email, but we managed to speak to the cleaning team who gave us a clean cover. The cottage was not as clean as I would have liked, as the rugs were not vacuumed and a few cobwebs. VERY Disappointed that we were not informed the Spa was closed and also the on-site club house was closed on a Saturday night without prior warning apart from a board outside when we got there.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with some elements of the property. Had you let the cleaning team know that you were unhappy with the clean, they have offered to come out and do a re-clean. Unfortunately, we have little control over the facility open times. We are however glad to hear you had a good stay. Property Owner

    The towering neighbouring trees help keep it cool on hot days. As reported elsewhere, the overnight hot water heating does not appear to work. We had to use the boost button to get hot water. Also, the extractor fan appears to suck air into the bathroom, so it is advisable to shower with the window open at least on its latch.

  • "On the whole the property was fine and very clean but there were a few areas which really let it down: 1."

    Large cobwebs in the conservatory and a large nesting spider 2. Broken glass by skirting board next to dining room table 3. Four bottles of beer in freezer compartment which had burst caps off and therefore spilled beer which had frozen and rendered freezer unusable. As it was integral to fridge couldn't defrost it as would then have had unusable fridge. 4. Very dirty and dusty shelf in one wardrobe which we had to clean before using The bungalow is on a corner of a main walkthrough so the conservatory lacks privacy and constant kids on skateboards/scooters etc....

  • "This property is ideal for us (We have mild mobility problems) and we enjoyed a largely excellent stay despite the Covid restrictions and low temperatures !"

    The oven and cooker hood lights require new bulbs and the hot water system took a bit of getting used to but with family living locally hopefully you will see us again in the future. We have a confirmed booking for next Christmas ref 75G39-21-EN. The only problem was the Broadband advertised as available. The best download speed I could achieve was 0.7MB/Sec. at 0400hrs most of the rest of the time it was less than this with Sky (the provider) promising speeds of around 35 MB on a basic package (0783A) fitted My son who lives close by and works for BT in Truro had a look around and established that the estate was properly equipped and that on application, Openreach can install an upgraded connection free of charge which will rectify the speed problem. It is up to the owner of course but I am sure they would want their clients to access a proper broadband system rather than one that just about enables one to read a newspaper on the internet !

  • "The cottage although compact has everything needed and is a nice location by the stream."

    On the downside, the welcome pack here was not as good as we have had at other cottages. I would also make you aware that the conservatory appeared not have been cleaned, as there were cobwebs and dead flies on the window sills. The double bedroom is okay but the bed is very uncomfortable and one wardrobe door cannot be opened without removing a bedside locker. The cottage is warm and there was plenty of hot water if needed. The cottage does get a lot of foot traffic passing by so is not private unless you keep the blinds down. The facilities on site seem good although we didn't use them.

The property

Chy-Nans is one of only three bungalows by the stream within landscaped gardens in the Village of Gardens at Pendra Loweth, in the peaceful valley close to Maenporth Beach in Falmouth.

There are onsite facilities including tennis courts, children's outdoor play area and an indoor splash pool (seasonal opening hours) making an ideal venue for families seeking relaxation and recreation close to the coast, with accommodation all on the ground floor.

Dine in the sunny conservatory, and relax in the open plan living area, a smart and modern space with kitchen combo.

There are two well-appointed bedrooms and a pristine bathroom.

Open doors to the patio area with picnic bench, set in communal grounds with gentle stream running by.

Set on the far edge of the Village, Chy-Nans enjoys access from the winding lanes which lead in from Swanpool road; a 15 minute walk to Swanpool beach with beach cafe or 10 minute drive to Falmouth resort with fabulous attractions for all.

Home to the National Maritime Museum, visitors will enjoy an amble through the narrow streets or a boat trip across the River Fal or up the Truro River.

Maenporth beach is the perfect spot to spend a day on the sands, but close enough to pop to for a couple of hours of just an invigorating swim.

North Helford is a quintessential Cornish visitor destination; a mix of beach, creek and woodland serve some of our most interesting and historic villages and towns.

Chy-Nans makes a delightful retreat for enjoying the best of this region of Cornwall.

About the location


Mabe 3 miles; Penryn 2 miles; Truro 11 miles.

Falmouth, with its magnificent natural harbour (the third largest in the world), winding streets and beaches, will keep you occupied for hours. The town's old harbour-side pubs, excellent shopping, art gallery and stunning National Maritime Museum simply complete the picture. Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII, is Falmouth's most popular attraction, sited on its own peninsula with superb panoramic sea views. Across from Falmouth harbour is the beautiful town of St Mawes, surrounded by the rocky coves, sandy beaches and lush green countryside of the Roseland Peninsula. Go there by car (15 miles) or take the passenger ferry from Falmouth (15 minutes). For nature lovers there is the Swanpool Nature Reserve, a lagoon and site of special scientific interest teeming with a variety of wildlife. There is also a golf course. Falmouth offers such a rich variety of landscape and attractions for people of all ages, it is sure to tempt you back time and again.
