“Restful, retreat, right up our street!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

Chycara was perfect in every way for a couple's long weekend break. Peaceful surroundings, warm hosts, great breakfast options, comfy/ quiet bedroom. An added bonus for us was the animal presence, with friendly domestic cats and free range hens, delightful!

A perfect country retreat in good reach to explore all areas of stunning Cornwall. Lovely owners, beautiful grounds, great pool and Jacuzzi, yummy breakfast, very impresses just what we wanted. We loved it so much we extended our stay. Thank you Chycara we will be back.

We had the 2 bed chalet in the beautiful gardens surrounding this B & B.
NB: It was a bit hard to find! Our sat nav went a bit mad when we were near the postcode - so be warned. If you're good at map reading however, you'll probably be ok!

Both Linda and David were very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. e.g. one day we woke up to no heating or hot water and the handle on the toilet flush broke too, but David got these fixed very quickly while we were out for the day.

There were a few minor niggles - the hot tub temperature was inconsistent. One day stone cold, the next day too hot, the next day perfect and the following day too cold again. However, this was a minor inconvenience really. The swimming pool was ok, and the tennis court was excellent (if you like tennis like we do!).

Little bits of the chalet could do with a bit of TLC too, e.g. the light above the mirror and shaving point weren't working and one of the cupboard door hinges was broken - again, only tiny problems but noticeable and worth fixing.

Nonetheless, we all had a great time (helped by the weather which was superb) and we would definitely recommend Chycara to anyone wanting a lovely relaxing break in this beautiful part of Cornwall. We will definitely stay again if in the area.

I chose one of the chalets in the gardens , as I was expecting vistor's - had the living room / dinning area + kitchen to cook for yourself.
Thought it was better than sitting in a hotel bedroom , or hotel reception - it was not much more than the standard room.

Room Tip: Worth the extra for a chalet - as it's like a Home from Home.

I've just spent my second week at Chycara House, just as enjoyable as the first. LInda and David are very accommodating, and keen to ensure everyone enjoys their visit. My stay is work-based, so I've booked yet more weeks, and looking forward to going back on Monday!

The owners were lovely, there if you needed them but, left you alone if you're after a bit of peace and quiet. We stayed in the lakeside lodge which was lovely, clean, spacious and comfortable. We stayed as a family of five but, didn't get chance to use the excellent facilities such as the tennis court or swimming pool. We will be going back for a longer stay at some point for sure. Peaceful, tranquil but close enough to any amenities should you need anything.

Only stayed for one night this time, but DEFFO, going back. It's a gem. The whole place is stunning. Nothing was to much trouble for the owners David and Linda. Breakfast was awesome with FRESH eggs coming from the chickens that are kept there.
