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

Thank you for a lovely holiday – the cottage is fantastic and you thought of everything.  The wine and eggs were a great touch.  The walks were lovely and the views are amazing.  Tintagel is the perfect holiday destination,  Thanks so much! The Liveseys

Thank you for such a well presented house with everything we needed for a fantastic week.  In such a good position with easy access to coastal path and lots of different beaches. Enjoyed submerging ourselves in King Arthur and Merlin story and bodyboarding in the sea.  Thanks for the wine and eggs! The Nelsons

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.

Had a fantastic time.  House has everything you could possibly need.  Would certainly come here again in the future.

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.

We had a lovely time in Tintagel and my daughters wedding was fantastic. Thank you so much for the wine and egss. Very thoughtful, we are coming back.

April 2018

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 !!

Thanks for a lovelt stay. Chylowen is a fabulous house, so homely and cosy. We have had a great time. Lots of walking on the coastal path which is amazing, if challenging at times!! King Arthurs Arms great food and lots of good beer. Will recommend to friends.

September 2018

All pluses and no negatives for this hoiday HOME – home being the operative word as it is so homely. Great location – great places to see – St. Nectans Glen, Rocky Valley, even made it to St. Michaels Mount and the Minack Theatre. Two hour journey but a great day out. Thank you for letting us stay and for the wine and eggs which was appreciated. Hope to stay again one day and will recommend.

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 !


February 2017

Had a wonderful week in Tintagel. It is such a pretty village and so different from home. Thank you for providing such a comfortable abode.

March 2017

Brilliant accommodation. We’ve been really comfortable and happy here. We’ve also found lots of interesting things to do every day. Fun on the beaches at Trebarwith, Daymer Bay and Crackington Haven. Surfing at Polzeath – for younger family members. Walks along coastal path and visiting the Castle at Tintagel. All good. Thank you.

April 2017

Another fantastic week – we love it here. Accommodation perfect – we could ask for no more. This time we hired bikes from Wadebridge to Padstow – lovely and flat – but book the day before (Bridge Bike Hire). We spent 3 days crabbing – go to Rock – thats the place. Will definitely be back. Thanks for a good week.

May 2017

Had a lovely stay at Chylowen. Walked everywhere, drove south and north, then spent lovely time in our “adopted” home for the week. Thanks so much.

We had a wonderful time staying in your beautiful cottage and exploring this fantastic part of Britain. It had becoime our new favourite area and one we shall remember for a very long time. Thank you for your hospitality, delicious eggs and especially the wine!

We have had an excellent week in Cornwall helped in no small part by staying in this beautiful house with its fabulous views. The weather has been mixed but has in no way detracted from our stay in this picturesque county. Many thanks to Sue & Kearon for providing such a comfortable “home from home” and for the eggs and wine. We shall return …..

The house is lovely everything you could want, had a great week here, enjoyed our days out. Thanks so much.

June 2017

Arrived Sat 27 May, unfortunately no sunshine in sight! A beautiful holiday home, well equipped to suit all needs. Friendly owners available if needed. Tintagel is a fairytale village, we would highly recommend a walk down to Tintagel Castle and Merlins Cave. Also Padstow & Fowey are lovely to visit. Good places to eat are the Mill House and the Malt House, both offering a good standard of service and food. Would definitely visit this house and village again.

We have had a wonderful week in this fabulous house. The weather has been mixed but most days the sun put in an appearance at some point. The house is in a great location, its easy to get to most places from here, and Tintagel itself is really lovely. The castle is fantastic and well worth a visit. Many thanks to the owners who have thought of everything. The house is really well equipped and short of nothing. Thanks for the eggs and wine, a lovely thought. We would love to come back. Many thanks.

Thank you so much for a fabulous, clean, tidy and comfortable holiday house. 3 scorchio days – hot, hot, hot – so lounge seats for garden were much appreciated. Have to say have never been so grateful to see the cloud when it eventually came. Very relaxing holiday, as we were neding a break, so not a lot of exploring, Did make it to Lands End which was good though. Lots of nice craft, jewelery and souvenir shops in Tintagel and nice places to eat. So many thanks, we have enjoyed our stay.

July 2017

Fantastic cottage – we have had a wonderful holiday. Weather has been really kind apart from 1 day. Thank you to Sue and Kearon for letting us stay at Chylowen. The cottage is so well equipped with everything you could need – especially as we forgot the travel cot – so thank you ! Had great days out at Bude, Widemouth Bay, Polzeath, Padstow, Newquay and Treknow. Son No. 1 enjoyed the surfing a Polzeath and Fistral Bay and Tintagel is great for walking and some lovely shops/pubs that have great food. Sad to leave as the week has been great and the 7 days have flown by. Many thanks for making this a lovely holiday.

Lovely week – Tintagel is a wonderful place. We all had a fantastic time staying here at this lovely holiday house. It is a great property and just what we were looking for! The whole family thoroughly enjoyed all the walks that were easily accessible from our front door; the location is perfect. Thanks for making this a great holiday.

Fantastic cottage thas has everything you need, plus those things you didnt realise you did need! Great location for Tintagel and the surrounding areas and great beaches for the kids to go body boarding. Mixed weather towards the end of the week, but still plenty of things to do including visiting Tintagel Castle and Merlins Cave. A really enjoyable week.

August 2017

Our second stay in this localy area and house. Worth a visit – Rocky Valley, Trebarwith Strand, St. Nectans Glen, Bossiney Cove. There is a nice walk from here to Tintagel Church, round the back past the Castle and into Tintagel. Nice eateries – Pickwick Inn, St. Issey, Journeyman St. Issey (must book) and Port William at Trebarwith Strand. Weather not great for us this week but there is so much to do in this area- never a dull moment. Thank you for a lovely stay,

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. The house was spotless and in such a great location. We have stayed in lots of homes in Tintagel in the past and this was the best one! Wonderful for a 2 week stay. Lots of lovely places to try out including the Eden Project, the Plymouth Aquarium, The National Maritime Museum, Falmouth etc.,

Another great week in Cornwall. The sun even put in an appearance. Many happy hours spend down at Trebarwith bodyboarding, surfing, sandcastle building and paddling. Lovely comfortable house,why do holidays go so quickly!

We had a great week here in Cornwall in Chylowen. We enjoyed the house and the landscape especially the coast path very much and we hope to come back to Chylowen again in the future! Thank you !

We spent a wonderful week in Tintagel. Chylowen is a very comfortable house with fantastic views in front and in the back of the house. We are happy that we could stay here. Thank you for your friendliness. Chylowen was the perfect base for our weeks holiday, a lovely cottage, with beautiful views, very child friendly and plenty of space. Having a washing machine has been a life saver with a toddler, trips to the seaside and dodgy weather! Will definitely be recommending Chylowen to friends and family, and I am sure we will be back again to explore more of beautiful Cornwall. Thank you for having us.

A comfortable holiday home for us as a base for our travels in beautiful Cornwall. The weather was kind to us as we almost walked our legs off. The Court Experience in Bodmin is well worth a visit as well as Port Isaac. Lovely cliff top views . Thank you for your kindness and friendliness.

September 2017

The house is extremely comfortable and we had a good stay. Great location and good for evening walks along the coast.

Thank you for sharing this cosy cottage with us, weather was kind, although very windy. Went to St. Nectans Glen, beautiful walk, Tamar Otter Sanctuary – fed the deers, Bude, Crackington Haven beaches. We hope to come back in the futre, thank you once again.

October 2017

Lovely cottage, beautifully looked after and spotessly clean. Lovely welcome when we arrived. Thank you for allowing us to share this beautiful place, we have had a fab time.

This was our first time away where we rented a house. We were not let down. Sue’s communication was fantastic and the house was beautiful, the wine and eggs were a lovely surprise. We filled a lot into this week and will definitely be back in the future. Thank you for all your help and kind consideration.

April 2016

Spent an enjoyable week in a lovely comfortable and well equipped house and a beautiful part of Cornwall with plenty of things to keep the boys amused.

Lovely cottage, great views. North Cornwall is beautiful – we have been here many times and it always feels like coming home!

“Wow” a very comfortable house with everything you need even wi-fi for the teenagers!

“Wow” the views brilliant, fantastic things to see, walking distance.

“Wow” the weather has been a scorcher.

Could not have been better, thanks, will come again.

June 2016

Lovely to return to Tintagel after 40 years absence when we stayed at Lincoln House! All just as welcoming. Had a lovely sunny/hot week, walking on the cliffs to Trebarwith, trips to Lost Gardens of Heligan , Padstow and Port Isaac.

Thanks for being made so welcome.

Comfortable, spacious and clean accommodation with lovely views and easy access to many parts of Cornwall. We very much enjoyed visiting Golitha Falls, Port Isaac, Boscastle and Padstow. It was great sitting in the conservatory every evening after our tiring adventures out. We would definitely recommend Chylowen.

Thank you for making this cottage very good for children. We had a very nice stay, very relaxing. Thank you for the lovely stay !

July 2016

Many thanks for a wonderful stay. The house is perfect and very comfortable with everything catered for. We had a fab holiday and our son loved the beach. Hope to be back some day soon!

A lovely house, very comfortable with everything we needed. The weather was really kind to us and we had a good week. Many thanks.

We have had a lovely week, coastal walks, trips to the beach, we enjoyed cycling on the Camel Trail, Hidden Valley is very good, Eden Project is excellent. Bodmin Moor, The Hurlers and Golitha Falls were fantastic. The cottage is lovely, thank you very much.

A lovely week in Tintagel. A home from home. This place realy does have everything a family needs and I mean everything. Lovely views front and back. A short walk into Tintagel. Heligan is amazing. Camel Trail is well worth doing and a better way of getting to Padstow than by car. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Excellent accommodation as are the hosts. I would whole-heartedly recommend this place to everybody. Views as they were 40 years ago, little has changed.

August 2016

Loved the Castle walks. Home from home stay. We will recommend and will deffo be back. Thanks so much for enjoyable hols. See you again.

Have loved our holiday home – a lovely house that has been so comfortable and so well placed. We have loved our evening walks to Merlins Cave. Tintagel Castle was great and we would thoroughly recommend. Like most guests we have enjoyed Bude, Padstow, Lanhydrock, Trebarwith and Boscastle (we were fortnuate enough to watch gig racing while we were there). So much to fit in and we were fortunate with the weather. Thank you for all the little extras and well equipped kitchen.

Reading back through this guest book this is our 5th entry and visit here, which I think just proves how much we love it here. Another brilliant holiday, as relaxing as it can be with a 10, 6, 3 year old but its been great fun. Days ouu included, Crealys, Boscastle and Padstow but also lots of body boarding on the beach We will be back again soon. Thanks for a wonderful holiday.

We’ve had a fabulous week! The cottage is very cosy and comfortable with fantastic views front and back. The cliff-top walk to Boscastle is fantastic. We have been lucky to have such great weather. Thank you very much!

Another wonderful holiday – hope to see you again very soon!


February 2015

We said we would be back – and we are, and will be again – soon, hopefully – Fabulous, thank you.

March 2015

An extremely comfortable house – with everything you need for a relaxing break. Very well equipped and to a high standard, would definitely return and recommend to others – well deserving of your gold award. Thank you for your hospitality.

April 2015

Another wonderful stay, thank you so much.

Great cottage, all you need, lovely area to be based in for out and about. I reckon we will be back. We normally go to Scotland but the Poldark effect worked !

May 2015

Great week, loved it so much! Don’t want to go home but we will be back in August! Really enjoyed staying here, right near the beach and the weather was great, had a good week, see you soon !

June 2015

Very good location for walking the coast path. Walks – out house turn right to YHS youth hostel road, to sea or 2nd right then down to the sea. Boscastle to Tintagel quite up and down, the Camel Trail by bicycle, up to Bodmin, down to Padstow, flatish under trees beside the river. The Old Post Office is fascinating to visit. Lanhydrock Hall covers the period 1820 – 1920. It was sunny all week !

Lovely spacious house in a very nice spot – great views. Thank you for the wine – much appreciated. Weather just right, not too hot, better for walking Will definitely recommend to friends and family.

Had a great week here, spacious and well equipped house in a great location for walking and visiting the local area. Some stunning scenery and beaches to enjoy. Thank you very much and we hope to visit again in the near future.

July 2015

Thanks for a great week, we explored, walked and cycled. Beautiful and stunning scenery. Visited Trebarwith Strand and Tintagel, both walks from the house. Merlins Cave very magical especially in the wind and rain. We had changeable weather but it is so different from one village to the next it didnt stop us exploring. Great house and well equipped kitchen with lovely views to wake up to. Will definitely come back ! Thanks for your hospitality.

Thanks for making the house feel like a home from home. We had everything we needed here and it felt so roomy. The beaches at Crantock and Trebarwith Strand were good. Thanks again.

We have stayed in many cottages around the country but this is the best yet – a lovely home, our stay has been great. Tintagel is a wonderful place. The views are second to none.

August 2015

We have had a lovely week, really relaxing and enjoyable. Such lovely surroundings and a lovely house ! Thanks from all of us !

We have had a lovely week here at Chylowen. The cottage is well equipped and homely. I love the various artwork around the house ! There is lots to do in the area : Tintagel Castle was spectacular but not for the unfit ! We enjoyed the walk to Trebarwith Strand and the bike hire from Wadebridge to Padstow was great fun. The Eden Project is worth a visit but better value if you go after 3.30 p.m. (and you avoid the queues). Thanks Sue and Kearon for your hospitality – we will recommend you.

September 2015

Thanks again Sue and Kearon for a great stay, see you again soon.

A week in Tintagel and its been a blast,

But its come to an end after going to fast !

We had a bit of rain but plenty of sun,

5 ladies on hols, we still had fun !

We attempted new skills and bought a body board,

so packed up the car and surf beaches we toured !

A trip to Newquay, Bude, Trebarwith Strand,

A hill top walk and sunbathing on the sand!

Of course we shopped and spent a small sum,

Ate lots of cream teas and pasties, yum, yum !

We had dinner at King Arthurs just a short walk away

A perfect end to a perfect day !

Chylowen was amazing and very exquisite,

As soon as we arrived we were booking to revisit !

Its spot is ideal with a view of the sea

And in the garden theres even a palm tree !

The Moths have thought of all you’d desire

From DVDs and hot water bottles to a relaxing fire,

Foil, dishwasher tablets, towels and such

Its the little things that mean so much !

So we loved our stay and to Kearon and Sue

We’d love to say a massive thank you !!!

October 2015

What a find, absolutely perfect. Spent a week here at Chylowen, weather absolutely perfect, property wonderful. So much to do and see, would have loved another week and what lovely thoughtful owners ! Superb !

Another wonderful stay here at Chylowen. We are already planning our next visit, as there is still so much that we would like to see and do. Looking forward to next year.


February 2014

We have had a wonderful break, the weather has been kind to us, lots of fresh air with lots of muddy walks. Accommodation has been everything we would have hoped for with good customer service from the owners.

March 2014

Very spacious accommodation for the two of us, we enjoyed our stay at Chylowen very much.

April 2014

We have had a fantastic week. The cottage is lovely and we have seen some lovely sunsets. The coast walk from Tintagel to Boscastle was spectacular. We will come back again.

Another lovely stay in the “happy house”. Weather has been fantastic, we have been very lucky.

Gorgeous house, lovely views, great people. To put it simply “the best”.

January 2012

“Wonderfully comfortable, beautifully decorated and cosy cottage set in a relaxing and beautiful part of Cornwall. Enjoyed exploring the small coastal places and loved the English roast dinner and Cornish pasties. Took lots of photos and was fun to “rug up” and challenge the cold. We had a mix of weather and a great time of year to be a typical tourist with no crowd congestion. Wish we could revisit. If possible, we would loved to have stayed longer. Many great memories and tales to take back to Australia”

February 2013

“Well equipped home from home with lovely views. Thankfully the weather has been dry and sunny, despite the time of year. Excellent base to explore the area – Port Isaac, Wadebridge, Bude, Tintagel and the Eden Project all recommended. Also the Jamaica Inn worth a visit for a meal though beware the portions are huge. Thanks for a lovely stay – we may well be back!”

“Me and my brother had a nice time seeing Tintagel Castle ruins, thank you for a lovely time. “

April 2013

We heading for the lake in the hope of releasing Excalibur. Joking apart, a magical place, very peaceful. We will certainly stay here again and recommend it to our friends”

May 2013

“A lovely and well equipped cottage – home from home. So much to see and do in this part of Cornwall. Boscastle is pretty – always wanted to visit. Port Isaac was so much smaller than expected. Tintagel is lovely – felt our muscles ache after visiting the Castle. The fish and chips are lovely as are the hot donuts. Our final very warm and sunny afternoon was spent at Trebarwith – the boys loved the beach – very different from the ones back home. We will be recommending Chylowen to friends and family. Thank you !”

June 2013

“Our first holiday with our four month old daughter. This cottage has been great with all the facilities we’ve needed and more. We found plenty of places to visit for a few hours with a young baby. We enjoyed walking into Tintagel in the evenings. We’ve had a super holiday in this cosy house.”

July 2013

“A lovely week – gorgeous weather and a brilliant house. Very well equipped and all set up well for our two boys. The boys loved Trebarwith Strand beach and had loads of fun digging and splashing in rock pools. Will recommend the house to friends. Thank you for a lovely week.”

“Chylowen is perfect for the family. Spacious, well equipped and very homely. It is close enough to Tintagel to walk and use the facilities but far enough away not to be disturbed by the tourist hustle and bustle. There is so much to see and do in the lcoal area and after a busy week sightseeing it was always a joy to return “home” for the day to relax. 5 star “happy house” which we would thoroughly recommend.
