Chypons Farm is a collection of holiday cottages in a wooded valley, just outside St Ives. Once a farm, these 300-year-old granite buildings have been beautifully converted into four holiday lets and a self-contained B&B suite.
Farm Cottage sleeps six people, Waterside Cottage takes up to four guests, and River Cottage and The Barn each have room for three visitors. The B&B Suite is perfect for two. The cottages are arranged around a courtyard planted with cheerful pots and surrounded by mature woodland. Inside, the cottages are individually-decorated and extremely comfortable, with those thoughtful little touches that make a holiday extra-special.
We stayed just after lockdown. Julian was very helpful and check in and out was easy. The Barn was well equipped in the kitchen with everything we needed, lots of crockery too (6 of everything), a washing machine and dishwasher. The lounge was light and comfortable with a TV and well stocked bookcase. The bathroom has a shower, heated towel rail and lots of hooks for your PJ's while you're in there! The beds were very comfy - both the double and single. The garden was lovely and pretty with tables to sit at although not enclosed so our dog had to stay on his lead. All in all a lovey place ...more
My daughter Ruth and I spent a delightful week together in River Cottage, having not been able to meet up in person since January. Chypons Farm is ideally located mid-way between St Ives and Penzance, which was just perfect for the outings we planned for the week; the biggest highlight for us was the Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens which are only about 20 minutes away and are just spectacular, both for the gardens themselves and for the sculptures (and a very good restaurant!); other easy outings were to St Michaels Mount and St Ives (thank you, Julian, for the tip about using park-and-ride from...more
This is a delightful cottage in a great location well situated for visiting the furthest reaches of beautiful Cornwall.
The cottage was extremely clean & well presented. Equipped with everything you need including washing machine, dishwasher, oven, hob & microwave. Light and airy bedrooms and peaceful & quiet.
Friendly and helpful hosts for whom nothing was a bother.
St Ives, Penzance & St Michaels Mount are all within very easy reach. Cape Cornwall, Lands End & other fabulous places to visit only a short drive away.
One of the nicest & most relaxing holidays we have ever had.
This was our second stay at Chypons; we enjoyed our first visit so much that we had to return. On our first visit a couple of years ago we stayed in the Barn cottage which was lovely. This time we chose to stay in the Farm cottage, a much bigger cottage with two bathrooms and three bedrooms. Julian made us feel most welcome and we had an extremely relaxing week away, just what we needed during these current uncertain and stressful times. The location is perfect for making the most of what Cornwall has to offer: stunning coastline and wonderful National Trust gardens. We would highly recommend ...more
