“Home from home”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Even before we arrived we were made very welcome with the directions sent to my phone. A beautiful setting with all the facilities I could have asked for. Very friendly and helpful and a great breakfast. Comfortable bed, great shower, ample parking, interesting lounge and paintings in the hallway. We are going back. Book early!

Room Tip: They all look good to me.

Chycara House is one of the best kept secrets of Cornwall! The place is wonderful and the owners are really friendly and helpful. The house is warm and friendly and packed with interesting art from local artists! I'll be back for another visit soon! :)

We were lucky with the weather & the location being central to cornwall. We were even luckier choosing Chycara, it does everything it says on the tin & lots more. I am sure if I list all the pro's we shall have trouble with availability next time I try to Book. We will definitely be seeing David & Linda again.

Chycara hosted our wedding reception in April 2014. David and Linda have been the perfect hosts throughout our planning responding to our numerous queries promptly and positvely. They were so generous with their time allowing us to meet suppliers there and also full of advice and suggestions.

Chycara was the perfect location for our special day. The beautiful lakes, mature trees, landscaped gardens and great facilities meant that we could share our favourite aspects of Cornwall with friends and family visiting from afar. We had a village fete theme for the reception and David and Linda didn't bat an eyelid when we asked if we could install a coconut shy, hook a duck and other lawn games into their gorgeous grounds. Nor when we asked if we could bring in a donut and popcorn vendor. The children loved the easter egg hunt which sent them scampering amongst the trees and shrubs.

The grounds were a beautiful backdrop for our photos and all the suppliers were amazed by this little gem at the heart of Cornwall.

The marquee was the perfect size for our 65 guests and David and his team were happy to speedily put away tables after the wedding breakfast to make space for dancing. The newly installed toilets were great and the catering team were pleased with the kitchen too.

Guests stayed on-site and at other locations nearby. Those who stayed at Chycara enjoyed the a great stay and were greeted by the most delicious breakfast in the morning. My husband and I also stayed on at Chycara for a few days to recuperate from a busy few days. It was the perfect place to recharge our batteries and spend afternoons in the swing chairs soaking up the calm and tranquil surroundings.

I would whole heartedly recommend Chycara as both a wedding venue to other couples - its amazing value - but also as accomodation for visitors.

Thank you so much David, Linda and the Chycara team (including the cats) for making our special day, extra special.

Initially couldn't find the location but was talked in by the owner (using hands free), although very much my fault for not paying enough attention to the directions given!
Very friendly welcome for a weary traveller.
Great location, large grounds with pool house, tennis court, etc.
Room was very clean and tidy, twin beds, separate bathroom.
Good well stocked lounge - plenty of books, games, DVDs, etc.
Free WiFi
Would definitely go back for either business travel or holiday

Second time we have visited. Such a beautiful setting. Both Linda and David are fantastic hosts, really make you feel welcome. Definitely good cooks. Breakfast was fantastic.
Such good value for money, especially with the facilities available at Chycara. We will definitely be back again, not 2015 but 2016!

Thanks for such a fantastic stay yet again!

Came here mainly because of the reviews. Can anything be as good as this? Well yes, it can. A very friendly welcome on the two occasions I used the place. Fantastic rooms and bathrooms. Tremendous location, very beautiful grounds and gardens. I really can't think of a negative comment. Linda and David are perfect hosts. Even Alex Polizzi would be challenged to find anything here. Stay here, you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: The two I saw were equally fantastic
