We offer a warm welcome and affordable holiday at Chycarne, a traditional Cornish farm, built in the 17th century and situated in a conservation area of outstanding natural beauty and World Heritage Site.
South facing and set in six acres of grounds with truly magnificent panoramic views over the surrounding unspoilt countryside and beyond to Mounts Bay from the Lizard to Penzance.
Nestling on the side of Tregonning Hill, Chycarne Farm is a unique and beautiful retreat from the rest of the world. Each season has something to offer here. Being so far south, the warm sun and mild climate produce sub-tropical vegetation. Wild flowers grow in profusion along the stone wall hedges in Spring and Summer. In the Autumn and Winter the heathers, gorse and bracken form a carpet of colour on the hillsides. The original granite farm buildings have been imaginatively converted into comfortable self-catering accommodation. Surrounded by peaceful gardens and paddocks, where you can sit and relax and enjoy the unique atmosphere and views.
9 self-catering cottages, sleeping between 2 people & 4 people in each.
All the cottages offer extremely good value and are well equipped. They are completely self-contained and comfortably furnished. All have a fitted kitchen area, full size electric cooker, refrigerator, microwave oven, filter coffee maker, toaster and kettle. They also have an HD Freesat receiver, Flat screen Television, DVD player, radio/alarm clock, coal effect fire, convector and off peak night storage heater.
