Chycara House
Ranked #2 of 19 Truro B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 10, 2013

stayed for one night in glorious July, hot and sunny and ideal for sitting outside, lots to see and admire both inside and outside the house.
Breakfast was superb, loads to eat we were waited on from beginning to end.
we liked the surroundings and the eclectic nature of the furnishings and decor throughout the house and gardens.
Being so hot we needed the windows open and could therefore hear the traffic on the road behind the house where there was no view, just a tall hedge and bank, to be fair it was a bit dark and airless. the noise of other guests using the facilitates made it difficult to fully relax, felt like we were living in someone elses house - which of course we were!

Booked a three night stay in the B&B but the stay lasted less than an hour. When booking we asked for the same room as shown in advert but were given a completely different room which was very dark and dated, on inspection we found dust covering the bedstead, cobwebs in the ceiling and hair on the chairs. We moved the bed out to find not weeks but months of build up of dirt and dust. We asked to be moved rooms but this was not possible as they were fully booked?????? We carried our cases back to the car and made a swift exit

Even arriving in the rain could not detract from the beautiful surroundings of Chycara House. Every aspect of our stay was superb. David and Linda were the perfect hosts and went out of their way to be accommodating. The room was comfortable and tastefully decorated, breakfast was extensive, freshly cooked and very tasty - they even grow their own eggs! The swimming pool was nice and warm and we even tried to recreate Wimbeldon on the tennis court LOL! Located just outside Truro makes it the perfect place to explore Cornwall. On our list of places to return to for sure.

Room Tip: On mobile service but Wifi.

Just spent five nights at Chycara. Was given a warm welcome from Linda and David with a much needed cup of tea. Our bedroom was superb. Breakfast, well what can I say, from sharing the dining room, the company of other guests, to the very tasty meal. The grounds of the house were wonderful and immaculately kept. Would we return? You bet we would

This is our second visit and on this occasion we stayed for 3 nights in June and received a very warm welcome on arrival. The room was very nicely appointed with plenty of space. There was a very varied breakfast menu with a number of hot options all freshly cooked. The grounds are quite extensive and you can always find somewhere quite where you wont be disturbed. Our hosts, Linda and David could not have done more to make us feel at home, supported by their pussy cats of course.

Room Tip: If you're looking for a base to do some walking from or in the area, this is perfect

We stayed at Chycara for four nights. When we arrived we did not realise that we had a lodge and not just a room. The lodge was amazing, very clean and very well equiped. The grounds that Chycara is set in are wonderful, the scenery is lovely. There is also a swimming pool which guests can use the only down side was that during term time it is used for children swimming lessons so we could only use it after 6.30pm but we did have the whole pool to ourselves.
Would recommend to anyone who is after a relaxing break but you will need a car to get around Cornwall.
