About the property

Quiet rural retreat, close to Penzance, ideal for beaches and SW coast path

Chyenhal Garden Cottage is bright and sunny and has been imaginatively renovated to a high standard by its artist owners. It is full of character with painted wood panelling, beams, roof lights, art and a cosy wood burner. The large windows create magical pictures of the beautiful gardens in which it is set. Approached along a picturesque bridleway there is plenty of off road parking and it is set in quiet countryside but still just minutes away from everything you need for a great holiday.

The living area is spacious; relax on the comfortable two seater sofa and enjoy the play of the flames in the wood burner or enjoy the outlook on garden and countryside. This connection with the outside is also one of the pleasures of dining by the window that looks onto the beautiful cherry tree and is bathed in the glow of the late sun at the end of the day.

The well equipped kitchen area includes ceramic hob and hood, fan oven, microwave, fridge freezer, and washing machine.

The bedroom is spacious and has a double bed, wood panelling and is filled with light and sunshine in the mornings and is warm and cosy at night. The en suite bathroom has a large shower enclosure and power shower.

Step outside the door and enjoy time in the sunny courtyard garden that is just for your use; BBQ and dine outdoors. We also have an acre and a half of garden here which we are very happy to share with our guests; feel free to stroll, relax and enjoy time in what one guest described as our "little piece of paradise".

Beautifully appointed and very welcoming

  • 5 of 5

A lovely holiday in a fabulous cottage. A welcoming cream tea on arrival that was delicious and much appreciated. The cottage was very well equipped and in a very picturesque and peaceful location. Spotlessly clean cottage and friendly hosts.

Ideal country retreat

The cottage was very well appointed and comfortable, perfect for a secluded get-away for two. Good base for exploring the countryside and little seaside hamlets.

Little piece of heaven........

  • 5 of 5

Really lovely cottage set in beautiful gardens. Easy to find with directions provided. Cottage was very well equipped and spotless when we arrived and was easy to keep clean as we had a dog with us. One of the comfiest beds ever. Loved the log burner and the cottage was warm and cosy. Lovely artwork and paintings in the cottage. Handy location for visiting everywhere. Claire and Bern (owners who live next door) were very friendly and we arrived to milk in the fridge and scones with clotted cream and jam - which was very much appreciated. Have no hesitation in recommending the cottage as a fab place to stay- must be lovely in summer as would be able to sit outside and take in the peace and quiet! Hope to be back again sometime.

Chyenhal Garden Cottage is situated on the Cornish Penwith Peninsula in beautiful countryside. Nine miles from Lands End it is just minutes away from Penzance, Newlyn and Mousehole situated on stunning Mounts Bay. Step out of the door and walk from here along bridleways and through fields to the picturesque fishing harbour of Mousehole with its beach, restaurants and old world Ship Inn. It is here that you can join the South West Coast Path which affords some of the best coastal walking to be had anywhere.

Penzance itself is an attractive town with promenade, listed Lido and harbour, shops, restaurants, pubs and galleries. Explore Chapel St, see the Egyptian House and try great pubs like The Turks Head and Admiral Benbow [look out for bandits on the roof!]. Sea trips to look at the abundant wild life of the bay and coast on the sailing catamaran Marine Discovery are are highly recommended; this years highlights include huge numbers of dolphin and porpoise, an enormous shoal of Blue Fin Tuna and a Humpback Whale! The bay offers great sailing, kite surfing and sailboarding.

Newlyn is still a working harbour and is the place to go for all kinds of fish fresh from the boats. As well as the harbour and fish market there are restaurants, pubs and the historic Newlyn Art Gallery.
