STONE BUILT BARN CONVERSION WITH RURAL VIEWS

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Porth - Chy Byghan

Cosy cottage that sleeps four near surfing and family beaches and Newquay

Just half a mile from the large golden sandy beach at Porth and even less to Whipsiderry beach on the coast road just north of Newquay, this is one of a small group of single and two storey cottages with country views. The cottage is also just a couple of miles from the rest of Newquay's surfing beaches including Fistral and Watergate Bay. Watergate Bay is also known for it's kite surfing and is the home of Jamie Oliver’s new Fifteen2 restaurant. It was also the setting for the ITV series Echo Beach. There's a footpath near the cottage to the bay. For those who enjoy a walk it's around a mile.

Cosy Cottage: Chy Byghan is one of a number of cottages converted from stone built barns around a central courtyard. Snuck into one corner, the double glazed front door opens into a small entrance hall with a shower room W.C. with hand basin on one side, and a double bedroom facing the inner courtyard on the opposite side. At the rear of the cottage, a door leads through to a bright living room with a natural decor and colour scheme and two windows looking across the road to fields and the countryside.

There is a seating area with a new sofa bed (with a special matress designed to be good for your back)and a kitchen/diner with a pine table and bench seats and a galley style kitchen area with light coloured fitted units. The cottage has recently been refurbished and the floors in the kitchen area and hall are laminated with new carpet laid in recently elsewhere. We also installed a new washing machine a couple of years ago.

There's a shared car park at the rear of the group of cottages

What's nearby: If you want to give the car a rest then jump on a bus. There is a service that runs along the road next to the cottages during the summer months.

Porth beach offers safe bathing and is just a ten minute walk by road, as are a pub, cafes and the coastal footpath. Whipsiderry beach is at the end of the road and takes us about 7 minutes to walk to with a 5 year-old and a nine year-old so we think that's not bad! It's in a cove and has got caves and rock pools to explore and a vast sandy beach when the tide is out and it a good surfing beach which not that many know about! There's a convenience shop in the camp site just a few minutes walk down the road which you can also use. Local hotels in the area welcome non-residents to their restaurants. Golf, horse riding and ten pin bowling are all available nearby.

More about the cottage: The cottage has many features including a microwave, and a travel cot and we've just popped in a new funky kettle and toaster for 2011. Electricity and heating is inclusive. Ideal for a couple but for a value holiday it can sleep up to 4 (2+2 a double bed and a new double sofa bed). The bedroom has just been refurbished in time for the 2011 season with new bedroom furniture. We have also recently put in a new fridge to the kitchen.

We've owned our cottage for a good few years now. Jill and I studied in Cornwall and fell in love with the place then. A few years later when finances permitted we made the plunge to buy a property in Cornwall that a) Looked good and we could afford and b) that we could rent out at an affordable rate so that others could enjoy the beauty and fun that is Cornwall too. Oh and of course it had to be near the sea!

Excellent location

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 11-Jul-2011
  • Date of Stay: Jul 2011
We stayed in the cottage in July 2011 and really enjoyed it. Although it is quite small it was very comfortable and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The location is perfect for us, very close to Newquay and beaches and other attractions. The residents are welcoming and friendly and we will definitely stay here again in the future. I would recommend this property to people of all ages but be aware that some residents are permanent and have work to go to so consideration is required.

Communication with the owner is very good.

After a slight detour, we found the cottage. For the 2 of us and a very inquisitive Lurcher, there was plenty of space. It was also clean and tidy, and more importantly everything worked. We also liked the fact that the people in the area were a mix of visitors and residents, and after a couple of days most of us were chatting like old friends.
Very useful as a base to get just about anywhere, whether that would be a beach or a drive through the countryside.
We would definately recommend this property to anyone, and also would gladly stay there again.

Easter April 2010

My wife and two dogs, a boxer and a doberman all stayed here comfortably over Easter, in April 2010.
I would highly recommend this to anyone with pets as there is some lovely fields directly opposite the property where you can walk your animals off the lead. It is also very close to Newquay town center and there is also a vets nearby.
The view is nice, and the cottage is very warm. Parking was easy. This is a good value for money rental.
