We stayed in the garden lodge (2 bed), it was delightful, a real home from home. The indoor pool, hot tub & game facilities (Pool, table tennis etc) were an added bonus. The location is an ideal base and beaches & town centres were all within half an hour to 40 minute drive. Would definitely recommend this hidden gem. We... More

Beautiful, spotlessly clean room. Wonderful grounds with indoor pool and hot tub. Owners could not have been more welcoming. Great selection of choices for breakfast. My smoked salmon, scrambled egg and tomato was delicious. Could not recommend this place more highly. We will be back. Thank you!

Despite a small double room we had a beautiful stay at Chycara and our hosts and the ambiance in the main house made us feel at home from the first minute. From here you are just in the middle of Cornwall with short drive distances to all its attractions. Breakfast is excellent with a great choice and since all guests... More

We had only booked in for one night, arriving early evening, but would have gladly stayed longer. From the thoughtful and helpful directions sent to us by Linda and David prior to our stay and the warm welcome plus cup of tea or coffee provided on our arrival, we knew we were on a winner. The rooms were clean, comfortable... More

Spent a very comfortable short break at Chycara which we chose for it's central location, David and Linda made us feel very welcome and very much at home. Grounds were beautiful, accommodation very comfortable and breakfast show stopping especially the hogs pudding. Will definitely be returning with our 2 Daughters and will be recommending this to our friends.

Very nice lodge, very spacious and clean, pictures don't do justice on website.a few fixtures & fittings could do with updating, some kitchen utensils bit old & worn. Swimming pool nice & quiet, they do have lessons throughout the day but plenty of time for the guests to go in at lunchtime and early evening. Overall a pretty good place... More
