June 2023

What a wonderful place to stay, home from home.  Thank you so much for an awesome part of my 70th celebrations.  Absolutely beautiful.  Everything is perfect here, many thanks.

Thanks again Sue, Chylowen looking glorious as always.  Like the new extra touches for this year ! Feels even more homely. Thanks for enabling us to celebrate our aunties 70th birthday with a short stay. hope to stay again shortly, cheers !

July 2023

Thank you Sue for this wonderfully comfortable home, so attractively decorated and furnished, so comfortable and with so much storage space.  We appreciate the location, the views, the comfy bed.  We hope to be back !

Despite the wet weather we had a great week at Chylowen. The house was spotlessly clean and comfortable and in a good location for exploring North Cornwall.  A great family break, thank you.

August 2023

Thank you for providing the most perfect holiday home in this beautiful part of the country – we couldn’t have asked for more, even the weather was good to us ! We enjoyed the coastal walk from Tintagel to Boscastle, visiting the castle and discovering the local beaches, Bossiney Cove being our favourite.  We would love to come back.  

Another year at Chylowen and another fabulous holiday ! Thank you Sue & Kearon for such a wonderful comfortable holiday home.  Some lovely sunny days so visits to Polzeath and Crooklets were in order and kept our 2 boys happy.  Great fish and chips from TheBig Fish and as ever, I just love looking at the views from the lounge with my morning cuppa. Once again we will be back again next year, thanks for everything.

Thank you Sue and Kearon for another amazing week at Chylowen. Fantastic weather again.  We have had so much fun, lots of beach days, Summerleaze and Polzeath.  Amazing sunsets at Trebarwith Strand, dolphin watching from Padstow Harbour.  We cant wait to come back.

Such a lovely place and relaxing holiday.  Not lucky with the sun this year, but fun nevertheless.

September 2023

Thank you for such wonderful weather ! What a beautiful cottage, we have spent time in many holiday homes but this has been like home from home, the attention to detail is outstanding, clean and every detail thought of, thank you.  Beautiful area, Ye Olde Malt House Inn in Tintagel exceptional of ambience and food.  The Port William at Trebarwith Strand does a fantastic Sunday dinner and views of the bay to die for.  This cottage is 6+ stars, will highly recommend and will be a go to for when  next in the area.  Highly Recommended.


MAY 2022

Lovely stay, very comfortable and cosy and in the perfect spot.

JUNE 2022

Another epic break at our second Cornish home !! Thanks Sue for how you turn out Chylowen, it’s lovely and we are saddened to leave every time we stay.  Hopefully we will be back soon.,  Many thanks.

What a beautiful place in a beautiful county.  We have stayed in many cottages in Cornwall but this rates as the best. A wonderful weeks holiday enjoying the superb surrounds.  We’ll be back soon.

JULY 2022

What a beautiful place to spend our holiday.  We have been very lucky with the weather and the views from the house are spell binding.  Susan is very helpful and nothing is too much trouble.  After the year we had in 2020/21 it was the holiday we needed.  Thank you, warmest regards.

Thank you for a very comfortable stay ! Everything you could possibly need! Just like home ! Love the king size bed, struggled to get up most mornings.  Absolutely wonderful view, with spectacular sunsets.  Don’t want to go !

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chylowen.  Freya commended “I want to stay here forever”. Sue and Kearon are very hospitable and go above and beyond. We leave with our “batteries fully charged” (weather was also good!). Hope to return in the future.


Such a beautiful house in an amazing location.  We never want to leave,.  Thank you for our trip to the castle and we can’t wait to visit again !

We have had an amazing week, the house was everything and more we could have asked for.  Location was perfect for walks and beaches.  Also out was the hottest week of the year!! Was like being abroad.  Thank you so much for our stay.

We have had a lovely family holiday.  The house is fantastic and had everything we could have  wanted/needed.  It has been a wonderful base to explore Cornwall from . We are all going to miss those fantastic views.

Every time we step into this house we feel the weight lifting from our shoulders.  Some good weather! Beach most days. Bodmin Jail on a rainy morning followed by a walk along the Camel Trail.  Will definitely be back as we want to cycle it all next time! Thank you for another fabulous stay !

Once again another very comfortable stay.  We have had an awful year so far, so the change of scenery and peace and quiet was just what we needed.  The weather was awful but I’d rather be looking out of a wet Cornish window than a wet Northampton one! Thank you for sharing this fantastic place with us, I have no doubt that we will be back again soon. We managed to get to Bude twice, Crackington Haven and Port Isaac in between the heavy rain.


APRIL 2021

Hurrah to being able to holiday again – and what a fantastic place to stay – this is our 4th visit to Chylowen and it has never let us down.  Stunning walks and sunsets – and family memories.  Thanks Sue, we’ll be back !

After the trials and tribulations of Covid for the last year (we left last March to go into the first lockdown), it has been wonderful to return and recuperate in your lovely house.  We have had a great holiday, Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you again in October

MAY 2021

Lovely home to stay in.  So lovely to be only a couple of doors away from my uncle! Have enjoyed the walks to the castle point, and the walks into town and spending quality time outside the King Arthurs with John and his friends.  Thanks Sue for all your help. See you again soon.

We had a great time in Tintagel.  We explored the coastline, beaches, mini golf, St. Nectan’s waterfall, Camel Trail, Tintagel Castle.  Weather was great and your house so comfortable that we could not wish for better.  We definitely hope to come again.

JUNE 2021

Wow! What a beautiful house, real credit to you Sue.  A well equipped home from home and Cornwall never lets us down!! Hoping to finalise booking for next year, many thanks!

Delightful house – perfect for us! St. Nectans Glen and Waterfall a joy.  Pencarrow Gardens beautiful.  Went to Boscastle early to avoid the crows.  A lovely holiday, well worth the long drive.  Many thanks.

JULY 2021

Thank you for sharing this lovely house, it is truly a home from home.  We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay, very lucky to have had extremely good weather too.  Many thanks.

Thank you so much! This is one of the best holiday homes ever, so clean, so well equipped – a joy! We have had the most wonderful time – helped by amazing weather.  Our grandsons did not want to go home (and neither did we).  Many thanks.

Thank you for letting us stay in this most comfortable holiday home. We have had a fantastic week and have been in the sea every day.  Definitely worth the long journey from the north east.  The house is immaculate, extremely comfortable and has everything you require.


Another brilliant stay in a lovely, well equipped holiday home.  Although the weather was not as kind as we had hoped, we managed a beautiful beach day at Polzeath (go early) and nice to see everything in the village back open and bustling.  We would certainly recommend to others and thank you both again for a wonderful holiday.  After the craziness of the last 12 months just what we all needed.

Wow – what can we say? We’ve stayed in this holiday home many times and its always been spotlessly clean and very comfortable.  This year is no exception.  A fabulous holiday made so much more perfect with the constant sunshine! Beach almost every day – Crooklets, Widemouth and Polzeath.  Bude Sea Pool and a visit to Lanhydrock. An idyllic part of the world and we don’t want to go home!! We will be back next year.  Thank you so much!





January 2020

Such a lovely holiday let with great provisions.  We would definitely stay again.  Views from the windows were stunning.  Thank you !

February 2020

Fantastic, well equipped house with lovely views.  Well located to explore the area, Rocky Valley was a hidden gem! Enjoyed a great meal at King Arthurs Arms.  Thank you

Perfect stay in your wonderful house.  It was everything we hoped for to be able to relax and chill.  Tintagel is absolutely beautiful and we’ll be back for sure.  Thank you for an ideal stay and best wishes.

March 2020 – July 2020 – Chylowen was closed due to Covid restrictions.  We happily re-opened on the 4th July 2020

July 2020

Thank you for a lovely holiday, lovely comfortable house with great provisions.  Stunning views despite the weather.  Lots of lovely walks in the area and cute restaurants nearby.  We would recommend the Rocket Store for amazing fresh seafood (Boscastle).  Thanks again for the lovely accommodation, will definitely come again !

Watched the sun go down outside the master bedroom and was beautiful!  We love the location and although lucky with the weather found plenty to do even though we expected more to be closed.  This visit was exactly what the family needed and have booked again for next summer !

August 2020

We were not so lucky with the weather but still had a perfect 2 week family break.  Such a beautiful part of the world with so much to explore.  And the house felt like a home from home, so comfortable !  Thank you

September 2020

We will definitely return ! A fabulous stay in a lovely house, close to Tintagel and the perfect base for exploring.  The house is spotless and well provisioned for everything we need.  An extremely comfortable stay and given the ever changing covid landscape, the owners have ensured both our comfort and safety.  Thank you ! Would recommend King Arthurs for a pint of Korev, Pengenna near the Castle for the best pasties, the Port William at Trebarwith for breaktaking views.  We will definitely return !

We have been very comfortable in this well equipped house.  Visited Trebarwith, Boscastle twice – to show our son – walked along the coastal path towards Tintagel.  Beautiful views from the lounge.  On the foggy days we visited Pencarrow House and gardens and walked into Tintagel and visited the Camelot Hotel and had a cream tea.  Treyarnon Bay and Padstow was a beautiful day on Thursday about 1 hour away.  Paddled in the sea, last visited on our honeymoon 40 years ago.  Thank you !

Very comfortable accommodation, home from home.  Enjoyed the wine and eggs, did the coastal walk to Boscastle on a hot day.  Shame to say we got the bus back.  Visited St. Nectans Glen, lovely walk from here.

In such a strange year, where we thought we might not get a holiday, it was lovely to enjoy a few days away together.  What a lovely, clean property, with great views.  Lovely local walks and of course, the Castle.  With thanks.

October 2020

Beautiful property, all mod cons and fantastic views.  Thanks Sue for a lovely stay.  Weather could have been better.  Let’s hope our next visit will be kinder.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at Chylowen and Treven/Tintagel.  The house is in an excellent location yet still lovely and quiet with excellent views.  We packed in Boscastle. the Eden Project, Port Isaac, coastal walking around Tintagel and Padstow.  For those reading this we highly recommend The Old Malthouse for a wonderful meal.

Thank you Sue and Kearon for the nice touch of leaving us wine and fresh eggs from your very own hens.  All the best.

We were really pleased to fit in a week away before lockdown 2 in this strange year.  We enjoyed a number of bracing walks on various stretches of the coast path in weather ranging from howling winds and hail to warm sunshine.  All thoroughly enjoyable regardless.  Lovely to come back to a very comfortable house after all the fresh air.  Really enjoyed our stay in a stunning area.






Another lovely stay as usual.  Thanks for everything, Jackie and Ronnie.

April 2019

What a lovely house, very comfortable,  Such a great place to stay as a base for visiting Bude, Boscastle, Tintagel and the Eden Project.  The weather was good to us, the kids enjoyed Bude beach and Trebarwith Strand, having a paddle and a swim.  We also visited Hidden Valley with the maze and trails.  Sorry to be going home, Heather, Dean and family

3rd visit – we love it here – a home from home.  This time the week started cold so we did some exploring – Lanhydrock House (National Trust) at Bodmin well worth a visit.  Scorching hot now so plenty of beach action – walk to Boscastle – its amazing. Thanks Sue & Kearon – we’ll be back! The Smith family

May 2019

Thanks – we have had a great time.  Nice easy walk into Tintagel.  Chylowen is a lovely house, well equipped, we had all we could possibly need for our stay, thanks for the eggs and wine.  We had plenty of day trips out, Bude, Newquay, Bodmin, Port Isaac to name a few.  Our grand-daughter enjoyed exploring the rock pools at Trebarwith and she walked all the way to the waterfall at St. Nectans Glen and back, a very tired little girl, sleeping well.  Watched some lovely sunsets over the sea.  Wish we were staying longer.  The Millard family.

We’ve had a lovely time in Chylowen and Tintagel.  Thank you very much for the bottle of wine and the lovely free range eggs.

Thanks for everything Sue, we’ve had a great week.  The house was perfect for us – very comfortable with a great location.  Kids loved body surfing at Trebarwith.  We’ll definitely be back for another visit.  The Gerrards.

June 2019

Have enjoyed our two week stay here.  House very clean and comfortable, will miss the lovely views.  We missed the cream cows when they  moved fields.  The weather has been good, managed to do the walks we wanted. Would gladly stay here again.

Loved Cornwall, loved the house.  Everything you could need is here.  Found some beautiful beaches and the weather has done us proud. Will be recommending both the house and Cornwall to friends and family, can’t fault anything! Had a great time! John and Cora

July 2019

August 2019

We had a great time and packed lots in.  Eden Project, Lands End, Botallack, Polzeath, Trebarwith, Port Isaac and Boscastle with lots of strolls into Tintagel too.  The house had everything we needed and provided a good base for our first family holiday to Cornwall.

September 2019

Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely house.  We loved the sun room and sat chatting for many an hour.  Love the area, very well known to us, hope to see you again soon.

Great location, well equipped accommodation, and warm welcome with wine and eggs.  We have stayed here several times and look forward to coming back.  Boscastle Farm Shop/Cafe definitely worth checking out.  Thank you for another wonderful stay.

October 2019

Chylowen is a beautifully furnished home, wonderful attention to detail, everything we could possibly need for our week, we would be proud to call this our home! We have a week in Cornwall every year, this house is by far the best, combined with brilliant location for all our travels and nook and cranny hunting.  We would not hesitate in trying to book here again.  Thank you so much for this wonderful home from home.

Wonderful house, wonderful location and wonderful memories! “Love it” says Jacob aged 6 (nearly 7)! Thank you.

This house is something to be very proud of. It feels like home the second you pull into the drive. We have all thoroughly enjoyed out stay here. The scenery is jawdropping when you can see through the clouds which have been novel living amongst. Thank you for providing such a wonderful place for us to call our home while we make memories, discover magical places and fall in love with Tintagel.

May 2018

What a wonderful holiday! The house exceeded all our expectations and we loved the views and being able to walk to the ciffs right from the house. I was brought up in Camelford and although I have lived in Canada, this area is still “homne”. It was especially wonderful to share this holiday with my adult children, who spent many happy holidays here as children, but who had not been back for 30 years, So many wonderful memories. Chylowen certainly lived up to its name, Thanks Sue for making us so welcome.

A really lovely base from which to explore the beauty of North Cornwall. A beautiful cottage, lovely walks and tremendous views from all dirctions. Thank you for the wine and eggs – a lovely surprise. Such a nice place to stay, clean and with everything you could need. Thank you very much from us all.

Thank you for a fabulous stay! Very well equipped, clean and convenient Will return! Thanks !

Thanks for the lovely comfortable, well equipped house. A real home from home. We enjoyed some wonderful sunsets from the lounge. The weather was good so we were able to walk the coast path to Trebarwith Strand to the west and Tintagel to the east via the pretty church and castle. We found a warm welcome and good food at the Tintagel Hotel.

July 2018

Lobely property, lovely views both front and rear. Home from home, facilities fabulous. Had a fantastic week here, weather was glorious. Great food at the King Arthurs Arms, found a jewel in St. Nectans waterfall, very peaceful and nice walk through glen to get to it. Very thoughtful to leave eggs and wine. Thank you. Will return here again so handy for Port Isaac, Padstow, Boscatle, and Tintagel lovely on its own.

Lovely comfortable stay, very enjoyable. We’ve enjoyed the local beach and Polzeath beach. Also had a lovely trip to Padstow. We’ve enjoyed the views and the sunset and had a lovely time.

Thanks for a great stay! The views from the upstairs were great, not to mention the walks around Tintagel and Boscastle. The house was well facilitated which meant we were comfortable. Thanks for the towels as well – less washing at home! We will definietly recommend to friends.

August 2018

Thanks for another gret stay Sue! We absolutely love Chylowen and its proximity to everything. Tintagel is always a good base to travel up and down the coasts. King Arthurs Arms has great food. The beaches at Widemouth Bay and Trebarwith are out favourites. Falmouth is worth the journey too. Thanks again.

Thanks for a great stay – our first visit to this house – was very clean and had everything we needed. Lovely location – close to walk into Tintagel village and visit Kernow Fudge – their clotted cream fudge is a must try! Thanks for a lovely homely two weeks away – felt like a second home !!

All pluses and no negatives for this hoiday HOME – home being the operative word as it is so homely.

We’ve had such a lovely week and have been so comfortable at Chylowen. Thank you for making it so comfortable and for eggs and wine. Its a great location to be based in, a lovely area. We loved Trebarwith Strand and the Port William. Great spot for a meal and watching the sun go down. I am sure we will be back in the future.

October 2018

Had a great week here in Tintagel. Chylowen is cosy, very handy for the coastal path and in a nice peaceful location. We didnt use our car once and managed to walk 41 miles over the course of our stay, taking in Trebarwith, Penhallick Point, Backways Cove and Tregardock, as well as Boscastle. Great pasties in Boscastle Bakery. The eggs and wine were a welcome gift, thanks !
