  • "Beautiful, spacious, comfortable, quality, stunning views." many more adjectives could I use. Chy Lagen Hos is a most wonderful property full of space and light with a unique style running throughout. Whilst the modern fittings brought a luxury break feel to our holiday. A hot water tap for the tea and coffee is a real spoiler item. The views over looking the owners garden are fabulous, bringing a calming and tranquil vibe into the house and those ducks are such fun to watch and enjoy. The owners (Helen & Simon) could not be more welcoming and friendly, going out of their way to help and sharing their knowledge of the area, even giving a delightful tour of their own garden. Chy Lagen Hos is a home from home which encourages you to live in Cornish time and one you want to say ' Oh yes, home time..... We shall leave DRECKLEY!'

    We loved the showers, probably the best we have ever had! Our only recommendation would be to maybe have some chairs out on the decking at the front of the property. The evening sun was so lovely but it was mainly out of the front of the property and not at the back decking, so it would have been nice to have enjoyed it.

  • "We were in a little paradise."

    The cottage has a wonderful view! You are immersed in the beautiful nature. Surrounded by the pond and ducks and birds, it reminded me of the Beatrix Potter stories. I adore it! The cottage is spacious and modern. I loved the open plan kitchen and living room. We had a sunny day and ate outside. Newquay’s beaches are glorious, with miles to explore, perfect for long walk or if you are brave enough you can even surf in winter time. We ate delicious seafood at the Boathouse restaurant but you have to book in advance. There are so many wonderful places to visit, my favourite so far are: Fistral Beach, pentire Steps Beach, Barbara Hepworth Museum, Eden Project, Lost Garden and off course just around the corner the Potting Shade, perfect for breakfast! We were spoiled with a welcome treat!!! fresh eggs and a bottle of Italian rose’. What a wonderful place! I can’t wait to go back!

    Especially relaxing sitting on the decking in the sunshine with a good book watching and listening to the ducks and chickens. Thank you very much Helen and Simon for the eggs and wine they went down very well. Helen and Simon were lovely people and especially kind and sympathetic when we had to cut short our holiday because of illness but the time we were there was really enjoyable. Very comfortable, clean and cosy and hopefully we will be able to revisit sometime in the future.

  • "With the nightmare of the Corona virus upon us and a planned cruise still not cancelled by TUi we decided to book what we thought would be a safer option by staying in England and visiting Cornwall."

    It was important to us to have a central location for visiting all the lovely places and somewhere with peaceful surroundings where we could switch off and relax after our headland walks and days out. We were not disappointed. On arrival we were met by Simon the co-owner of the property who kindly brought us two bottles of wine and some eggs from their chickens that stroll around the beautiful grounds together with the highly entertaining ducks. I would also like to say how helpful and friendly Simon and his wife Helen were and how we enjoyed a tour around the garden which is really stunning and would add that photographs just don't do it justice. The bungalow is a large, open plan, beautifully finished property with everything you need, with TV's in both bedrooms and a really large TV on the wall in the living room, all 3 are smart TV's with Netflix, You-Tube etc. The bedrooms are both en-suite with plenty of storage, the kitchen is fully equipped, even a dishwasher. There is a separate toilet and a utility with a washing machine and drier, so it really is a home from home and has all you need for a long stay. Outside there is a very large decking/patio area which has to be seen to be appreciated and when you first go outside the view is quite jaw dropping, a large pond with landscaped gardens wrapping around it and total seclusion and privacy. At night it is deadly quiet, apart from the occasional quack, we had a great nights sleep. I would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful place, and to praise the owners for making you feel so welcome and for helping to make our stay such a lovely relaxing experience.

The property

A very luxurious ground floor apartment set in the heart of the delightful village of Quintrell Downs in Newquay, perfect for couples or a family of four.

This splendid accommodation has everything you could possibly want and need for a comfortable break in the popular seaside town of Newquay, from large spacious living to stunning outdoor views.

When you enter the property, you will see right down the extensive hallway to the large open-plan living area which features a plush L-shaped sofa and delightful, contemporary style woodburner with chrome flue.

This living space also features a substantial, deluxe wooden unit for storage and a fabulous kitchen, fully-fitted with all the necessary appliances.

The first super king-size double bedroom with en-suite shower features a private patio with a seating area, so you can sit and enjoy some peace and quiet all to yourself.

The second bedroom, again beautifully decorated with fine furnishings, also has an en-suite and French doors leading to the glorious balcony overlooking the duck pond.

Outside on the balcony are two lovely seating areas and a barbecue, the dining area for you to enjoy an evening meal 'alfresco' and two comfy armchairs to relax in.

This is a very peaceful, calming spot, overlooking a stunning woodland and duck pond.

Newquay is known for Fistral and Watergate Bay beaches, where waves from the Atlantic Ocean are great for surfing.

Also on the seafront, the Blue Reef Aquarium features an underwater tunnel going through a coral-reef tank, perfect for bringing the kids to see the stunning pufferfish, sharks and rays.

Chy Lagen Hos, which translates to 'duck pond house' in Cornish, is in an idyllic setting for you to really relax and enjoy what Newquay has to offer.
