I stayed at Chy an Gwedhen with my girlfriend at the start of August for four nights. This was my second visit and I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Cornwall! Gill and Mike are fabulous hosts and can't do enough to help you. I enjoyed an excellent cooked breakfast and pastries and had a room with great view out onto... More

We chose this B&B from the net, certainly one of our better choices. Gill and Mike went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible and provide us with an excellent breakfast. The room was very comfortable with wonderful views over the bay. The only blot on the holiday came when I inquired about a round... More

Excellent accommodation in beautiful location. Really good breakfasts, food and menu choice to a high standard. Room very clean with sea views across the bay in stunning surroundings. Gill and Mike are the perfect hosts and were very good in helping with luggage and in accommodating our friends from overseas. We have stayed there over many years for our 2... More

We have recently spent three nights at the Chy an Gwedhen b and b in Carbis Bay, Gill and Mike were very welcoming and gave us tea and biscuits on arrival, our room (no 4) was spotless and beautifully decorated with lovely sea views over the bay, and was quiet and peaceful. There was an extensive breakfast menu that you... More

We spent this year's Easter weekend at Chy an Gwedhen and it was beautiful. Our friends got the twin room, we got the single one. As Gill had told us before booking, the room was not bad for a single and it proved to be more than enough for me and my husband. I liked the way the rooms were... More

I can only endorse what most of the other reviewees have said. Although I was travelling alone & therefore had the single room, the bed was a small double and therefore I slept really well unlike most other places which have only a single bed where you spend all night clinging to the edges scared of falling out if you...

Nice people, clean, pleasant and well kept house and garden, quiet, convenient for buses around, just a 10 or 15 min. walk from the center of St. Ives. What more can you want? Oh yes, a breakfast galore, which you will also get. And a very good one too!

The hosts Mike and Gill make you feel welcome from the start. The room we had, room 3 has excellent sea views, the b&b is in a good location although the coastal path is quite challenging in parts we found the walk along the main road easier and the views from this just as nice. We thought the breakfast mediocre... More

I stayed at Chy an Gwedhen with my girlfriend and having never stayed here before it was a lovely Bed and Breakfast. On arrival I was immediately greeted by Gill and Mike and offered help with cases.
