Chyvounder, Cornish for “house by the lane”, sleeps five in three bedrooms. There is a double room, a twin room and a single.

The cottage in detail:

Downstairs there is a bathroom adjacent to a small utility area. The large kitchen is well equipped and has an old farmhouse type table which combined with the open beamed ceiling and the Rayburn stove provides the perfect setting for family meals or romantic suppers. The living room, like the kitchen, has a large fireplace but rather than an oil fired Rayburn in place it has a wood burning stove. In addition to the two stoves there are night storage heaters throughout the cottage and all oil, firewood and electricity is inclusive in the tariff.

Outside, Chyvounder has a large safe, sunny garden with plenty of lawned area and a terrace by the front door for al fresco dining. There is a private drive to the side of the house for convenient parking and a large wooden gate shuts the outside world out and children or dogs in. There is plenty of space for more than one car or even a boat if getting afloat is your thing. A safe launching and swimming beach can be found 300m down the hill from the farm, complete with easy access and amazing views.

Despite Chyvounder having been build centuries ago the cottage boasts excellent broadband with fibre to the premises. The local village of Mylor Bridge is nearby and it has a good range of shops, a pub and can supply you with most of your needs.
