This beautiful bungalow is an ideal choice for a small family to explore the stunning coastline and picturesque villages.

Chy Bean, Cornish for little house, is an ideal relaxing base from which to explore and tour this beautiful county. This single-storey, detached, holiday home boasts a relaxing, well-established, enclosed garden with a lawn and mature trees, making an ideal spot for an al fresco breakfast or evening meal.
Carlyon Bay is a picturesque village with pretty tree-lined roads and a sandy beach, perfect for building sand castles, playing games or simply lazing and listening to the sounds of the sea. Crinnis Beach is home to pop-up restaurants and seafood bars along with a summer season cinema screen, right on the sand. The picturesque village of Charlestown, reached on foot along a path in under 5 minutes, is a popular film set location and is used as the set for the TV drama, ’Poldark’. This World Heritage site is home to tall sailing ships, many local bars, pubs, cafés and its own pebble beach.
The bustling, seafaring town of Fowey is close by with its narrow, winding streets and quirky shops and the Eden Project is just 3½ miles away. There are also the Lost Gardens of Heligan plus many National Trust gardens which thrive in the gentle, warm and sheltered area of Cornwall’s south coast, all within an easy driving distance. Cycling, sailing, kayaking and horse riding are available locally and Truro, Padstow, St Ives, Looe, Polperro and Newquay are close by. Beach ½ mile.

    Nice cottage. Good location for sightseeing. Not as handy for the local beach as I’d hoped.

    Although it was clean, it was tired and below the normal standard we have been used to. It had a strange smell i.e.old. The bathroom needs an extractor. Needs upgrading generally. We struggled to open the front door, and resorted to using the side door.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. It is difficult because there is and always has been an extractor fan in the bathroom in full working order and I have no idea what the smell is they mention. In response to this guests’ comment, I have however had the carpet professionally cleaned, even though we and the carpet cleaners could smell nothing, bought new curtains and cleaned the leather lounge suite with white wine vinegar. With regards to the front door we received no complaint during their stay and as it was working when we left before their arrival we were unaware of any problem, however we did get a locksmith on their departure which we would have done at the time had we been informed. We would have done our utmost to try and resolve things as the comfort of our guests is of paramount importance to us.

    We had a great holiday and Chy Bean was the perfect base. The location is amazing, just above Charlestown harbour. The cottage had plenty of space and character features. Equipment levels were very good. A very nice place to spend a week.
