Chycarne Farm Cottages nestle on the side of Tregonning Hill, just a short drive from the stunning beach at Praa Sands. The original granite farm buildings have been imaginatively converted into comfortable self-catering accommodation providing an affordable holiday in beautiful west Cornwall. Towan at Chycarne Farm is a wonderful one bedroom cottage with country and garden views.

Property Details

Offering a warm welcome and affordable holiday, Chycarne is a traditional Cornish farm, built in the 17th century and situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty and the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site. South facing and set in six acres of grounds with truly magnificent panoramic views over the surrounding unspoilt countryside and beyond to Mounts Bay from the Lizard to Penzance. Nestling on the side of Tregonning Hill, Chycarne Farm is a unique and beautiful retreat from the rest of the world. Each season has something to offer here. Being so far south, the warm sun and mild climate produce sub-tropical vegetation. Wild flowers grow in profusion along the stone wall hedges in Spring and Summer. In the Autumn and Winter the heathers, gorse and bracken form a carpet of colour on the hillsides. Surrounded by peaceful gardens and paddocks, where you can sit and relax and enjoy the unique atmosphere and views.

Towan at Chycarne Farm is a ground floor, one bedroom cottage with country and distant sea views, situated on the end of a block of three cottages. It is accessed from a gravel path up two steps. Fully refurbished in 2013, it is presented to high standards and has the benefit of a 5' double bed in the bedroom.

Accommodation
Ground Floor only: Kitchen, living area with a table and 2 chairs and two comfortable recliner chairs with footstools, modern fitted bath with shower over and WC, bedroom with 5' double bed with fitted wardrobe and dressing table.
Exterior: Garden furniture is available immediately outside the cottage and in addition you have access to the shared grounds of Chycarne, including a giant chess set and play equipment for younger children. The views from around the site are dramatic. There is an enclosed dog walking field on site.

Facilities & Services
Heating is via night storage and electric heaters. The kitchen has a freestanding electric cooker & hob, microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge with freezer compartment. The living area has a TV with DVD & CD player. There is WiFi available. This is an iron and ironing board available. There is an on site laundrette with coin operated washing machine and tumble drier.

Miscellaneous

Electricity, bed linen and towels are included. There is off road parking available for 1 car with further space available for trailers etc. Two well behaved dogs (more at the discretion of the owner) are permitted at the property at the extra charge of £25 per dog per week, although please remember you cannot leave dogs unattended in the property alone. Regrettably no smoking is allowed. A highchair can be made available upon request.

Short breaks are available during quieter periods.
£100 pre-authorised to your credit or debit card as a security deposit is required.

Property Location


Praa Sands in the South West of Cornwall is located between Helston and Penzance. The town contains many facilities including a shop, pub, post office and Praa Sands Gold Club. The nearest large supermarket is Morrisons towards Penzance. The extensive beach stretching from Rinsey Head to Hoe Point is extremely popular with the whole family, Prussia Cove, Perranuthnoe & Marazion are the nearest beaches, all within a few minutes drive. When the North Coast is 'blown out' you will find the surfers flock to Praa Sands for its powerful waves coming straight in from the Atlantic Ocean. Just inland from the beach is Pengersick Castle which dates back to the Bronze Age. Nearby Helston is famous for its Floral Dance in May, a day when the whole town stops and dresses up for the days many dances through the streets. From Penzance you can take the Scillonian for a day trip to the picturesque Isles of Scilly, well worth a visit if you have never been. 10 minutes down the road lies Marazion famous for St Michaels Mount, home to a medieval castle and a working local community. St Michaels Mount is accessible by causeway at low tides, or by boat. The castle is leased from the National Trust by the St Aubyn family who reside at the property maintaining and working the grounds.

Chycarne is only 1.5 miles from the beautiful beach and surf at Praa Sands and about the same distance from Rinsey's rocky cove (NT). Prussia Cove film set for 'Ladies in Lavender' and Godolphin House (NT) of 'Poldark' fame, are nearby. Four miles away is the market town of Helston, full of Cornish history and tradition, with it's Furry dance in early May. For children of all ages there is Flambards Theme Park next to Culdrose Air Base famous for many air sea rescue missions. There are sights to be seen around Goonhilly Earth station where the large dish Arthur is now a listed building. Try your hand at riding a 2 wheeled Segway. These together with the Seal Sanctuary at Gweek and the nearby coastal village of Porthleven provide any holidaymaker with a wealth of interesting visits. Only 7.5 miles away is the lively town of Penzance where trips to the Isles of Scilly can be taken by helicopter or ferry. St Ives is only 14 miles away on the north coast with its beautiful bays and artistic areas.

Chycarne is central for the areas and villages of the Lizard, Helford, Land's End and Mousehole. Facilities for golf, sailing, course and sea fishing are all available within two miles. You can take country and coastal walks or visit local country pubs for well priced meals or shop in the local super stores at Helston and Penzance. There are a wealth of gardens to explore. The mines at Lelant, Geevor, Bottalack and Poldark are a short drive away. The
Minack Theatre and Porthcurno beach are well worth a visit. There are world famous art galleries at St Ives and Newlyn.

Excellent accommodation in a lovely setting

Our fourth time staying at Chycarne and another lovely holiday. Since our last stay the cottages nave been upgraded to a very modern standard and offer a very comfortable, well-equipped home-from-home. The owners are also extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. The location in Balwest is beautiful in itself and perfectly centrally located for all the attractions on both Penwith and the Lizard. We would certainly stay at Chycarne again and recommend it very highly.

Blissfully quiet and above it all!

Towan cottage made an excellent base for visiting the far wet of Cornwall, from the Lizard to the Penwith peninsula. The farm had the added bonus of being very quiet , with extensive views across to the sea. The cottage itself, with its thick granite walls, keeps the warmth in and creates a cosy atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you. Ruth and Keith Howes

Great pet friendly Cornish cottage

Booked a last minute holiday and struggled to find a pet friendly location that wasnA?t crazy prices for summer . Found Towan cottage and pet friendly so booked. Space very well laid out compact lounge/ kitchen but everything worked well. Great bathroom /shower and bedroom. Remote location but very peaceful and good views . About 10 mins drive to Praa sands and 15 mins to Porthleven( great choice of restaurants ) If you want a peaceful , good value for money escape for 2.. or 3 with dog ! and donA?t mind the drive you canA?t go wrong here.

Towan

It was really lovely to come back to Cornwall again, We stayed here last year in the Tre cottage and loved it then so came back. And to celebrate a birthday and anniversary too. The new cottage we stayed at was modern cosy and Everything is so local and nearby and plenty to do and see. Its lovely to see the different type of properties there are available at Cornwall cottages. Owners are very helpful and understanding. accommodating and friendly. We will come back again.

Had really good weather-which always helps. Cottage was cosy, quiet and clean. Potentially quite a lot of other guests and Oli, the really very helpful manager, seems to be on site a large amount of the time. only suggestion would be to upgrade bedlinen.

Perfect and relaxing holidays with a magnificent view in a beautiful and quiet surrounding

Towan at Chycarne Farm is a beautiful barn conversion with modern and comfortable interior and equipment. The owner welcomed us and our dogs after our late arrival. The cottage was very clean and had everything you needed. In case of questions you get a quick response. Also a large dog playground was available. They loved it! From the kitchen window and the bench in front of the cottage you have a beautiful distant seaview. The whole area and the garden are a little paradise. We will come back!!!

Very sunny week in August 2016

The accommodation was exactly as described. The cottage is well laid out with tasteful modern oak furniture and a P shaped bath with plentiful hot water. There is Wi-Fi all around the site which works well. A modern kitchen with new cooker and hob. There is a clean functioning laundry room. The oak flooring is very easy to keep clean especially when the grass outside has just been cut. The only things I would have liked different is the addition of a small TV in the lovely bedroom and get rid of the plastic undersheet from the bed. It makes you very hot.! Other than that our stay was perfect :)

Nice and well maintained, perfect for a weekend getaway for 2

We travelled from London over the May bank holiday weekend. It was a very pleasant stay and Oliver was brilliant at communication and the poor chap even had to wake up at the middle of the night to so us in as we were stuck in the M5 traffic for hours. We were at the property for 3 days and the stay has been very pleasant. The property is located close to the beach but turned out to be a bit difficult to find for us, probably because we reached at 2 o'clock in the morning and also the postcode doesn't really take you to the property directly. Its a London thing I guess, we are just too used to finding the exact address from the post code and house number. Nonetheless, Oliver was very helpful and probably either stayed awake or woke up for us to let us in at that dead hour. We didn't really spend much time in the property but there was no problem at all with any of the facilities provided. Breakfast outside the cottage on the bench was a pleasant experience, especially for people like us who don't get to see much of greenery and sky and openness. Perfect for a couple or a small family. One thing to note, may be the living area should have a bit bigger TV and a small sofa rather than the 2 chairs provided. The chairs are good but a sofa would have been more comfortable. Also, please consider providing an option for guests to connect their own devices to play music or videos via the TV?! Just a thought.

Beautiful cottage

This is now the second cottage we have stayed in at Chycarne Farm and both have been beautifully fitted out. They are in a great location, being close to the north, south and west coasts, with Praa Sands being a 10 minute drive away. The cottage was warm and cosy with a very comfortable bed. You need a car as the farm is in a quiet, rural location, but this adds to the enjoyment. The only things I feel are missing are some of the basics, such as toilet rolls, or a couple of groceries (first cottage I've stayed in that hasn't had supply of tea, coffee, sugar etc), but as long as you know this beforehand, then you can go shopping first. Will definitely go back.

Towan at Chycarn Farm.

I thought Towan was very good for my purpose, namely to be a base for my wanderings in the area. I was returning to the places of my childhood. The accommodation is very clean and modern, simply laid out and everything easy to use. Read the manual to use the TV! Always a good idea to read the instructions first, how many of us do? The shower head has the potential to remove a toe. Bed very comfortable, bit on the firm side but I slept well, and I'm not a good sleeper. All very quiet. Could do with some decent sized cereal bowls and some decent sized mugs. The only negative for me was that it all felt rather sterile, by that I mean characterless. However, that said for what I needed at the time it suited me very well. I hope to return. A lovely area, much changed in many ways over 60 years but to me the essence of it all was still very much there.

A Lovely Week at Towan

Towan Cottage is a lovely place, very comfortable, in an excellent location with good facilities. The reason I scored Value for Money only as OK, is that it is a more a general comment about hiring cottages in the UK is that they seem expensive compared to similar properties in Europe, where you also get towels provided free of charge for instance and nearly always get a welcome pack. Having said that, we had a lovely week at Chycarne Farm
