Towan at Chycarne Farm - a barn conversion that sleeps 2 guests in 1 bedroom
Great pet friendly Cornish cottage
Booked a last minute holiday and struggled to find a pet friendly location that wasn’t crazy prices for summer . Found Towan cottage and pet friendly so booked. Space very well laid out compact lounge/ kitchen but everything worked well. Great bathroom /shower and bedroom. Remote location but very peaceful and good views .
About 10 mins drive to Praa sands and 15 mins to Porthleven( great choice of restaurants )
If you want a peaceful , good value for money escape for 2.. or 3 with dog ! and don’t mind the drive you can’t go wrong here.
Good location within 20 mins from beaches ,very clean and fitted out well owner and family very friendly, Home from home

It was really lovely to come back to Cornwall again, We stayed here last year in the Tre cottage and loved it then so came back. And to celebrate a birthday and anniversary too. The new cottage we stayed at was modern cosy and Everything is so local and nearby and plenty to do and see. Its lovely to see the different type of properties there are available at Cornwall cottages. Owners are very helpful and understanding. accommodating and friendly. We will come back again.
Overall a lovely place to relax, peaceful and quiet. Clean, comfortable accommodation. A little disappointed that the end property didn't have a sea view from our window's , ( which we were expecting ).
towan in early october
Had really good weather-which always helps.
Cottage was cosy, quiet and clean. Potentially quite a lot of other guests and Oli, the really very helpful manager, seems to be on site a large amount of the time.
only suggestion would be to upgrade bedlinen.
A nice cottage that was well located for our week away from work.
The cottage appeared to have been recently renovated and was neat and tidy.
Praa Sands in the South West of Cornwall is located between Helston and Penzance. The town contains many facilities including a shop, pub, post office and Praa Sands Gold Club. The nearest large supermarket is Morrisons towards Penzance. The extensive beach stretching from Rinsey Head to Hoe Point is extremely popular with the whole family, Prussia Cove, Perranuthnoe & Marazion are the nearest beaches, all within a few minutes drive. When the North Coast is 'blown out' you will find the surfers flock to Praa Sands for its powerful waves coming straight in from the Atlantic Ocean. Just inland from the beach is Pengersick Castle which dates back to the Bronze Age. Nearby Helston is famous for its Floral Dance in May, a day when the whole town stops and dresses up for the days many dances through the streets. From Penzance you can take the Scillonian for a day trip to the picturesque Isles of Scilly, well worth a visit if you have never been. 10 minutes down the road lies Marazion famous for St Michaels Mount, home to a medieval castle and a working local community. St Michaels Mount is accessible by causeway at low tides, or by boat. The castle is leased from the National Trust by the St Aubyn family who reside at the property maintaining and working the grounds.
Chycarne is only 1.5 miles from the beautiful beach and surf at Praa Sands and about the same distance from Rinsey's rocky cove (NT). Prussia Cove film set for 'Ladies in Lavender' and Godolphin House (NT) of 'Poldark' fame, are nearby. Four miles away is the market town of Helston, full of Cornish history and tradition, with it's Furry dance in early May. For children of all ages there is Flambards Theme Park next to Culdrose Air Base famous for many air sea rescue missions. There are sights to be seen around Goonhilly Earth station where the large dish Arthur is now a listed building. Try your hand at riding a 2 wheeled Segway. These together with the Seal Sanctuary at Gweek and the nearby coastal village of Porthleven provide any holidaymaker with a wealth of interesting visits. Only 7.5 miles away is the lively town of Penzance where trips to the Isles of Scilly can be taken by helicopter or ferry. St Ives is only 14 miles away on the north coast with its beautiful bays and artistic areas.
Chycarne is central for the areas and villages of the Lizard, Helford, Land's End and Mousehole. Facilities for golf, sailing, course and sea fishing are all available within two miles. You can take country and coastal walks or visit local country pubs for well priced meals or shop in the local super stores at Helston and Penzance. There are a wealth of gardens to explore. The mines at Lelant, Geevor, Bottalack and Poldark are a short drive away. The Minack Theatre and Porthcurno beach are well worth a visit. There are world famous art galleries at St Ives and Newlyn.
