13/08/19 Hester H Farm Cottage Fantastic welcome and service, Julian and Kate were wonderful hosts and went far beyond what was necessary to make our stay enjoyable. Julian has an answer to every question about local beaches, shopping, travel – and all of his recommendations were fantastic. When the fridge freezer packed up during our stay they had a new one in place within 24 hours, and provided space in their own fridge for our food in the meantime. Chypons is a great location for a holiday in the far west of Cornwall, and we'd definitely be returning soon if it wasn't quite so far from home for us.

10/08/19 Frances K River Cottage Thank you Julian and Kate for being the perfect hosts and superb Cornwall Cultural Ambassadors. Loved our stay at Chypons Farm in River Cottage. The cottage was immaculate and so tastefully decorated and the gardens are such a delight. Great selection of holiday reading books available - especially The Shell Seekers that I took great delight in re-reading. Thank you both again and I look forward to a return visit very soon.
10/08/19 Melissa B B&B My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights during a trip to Cornwall and we were so impressed. We stayed in the BnB suite and were so pleased with our stay. The room was beautifully decorated and very clean, plus it was a great size so we had plenty of space. Julian met us on arrival and was really helpful offering advice on what we should do while we were there which we took him up on. My favourite part of our stay was the breakfast, Julian and Kate had stocked the fridge with lovely local produce, including Cornish yogurt, fresh strawberries (which were refreshed each day), apple juice, fruit etc. There was also a range of local muesli and two fresh muffins from a local bakery each day. It felt like such a treat and really made the stay extra special. We also had plenty of teas and a great coffee machine. Besides all this, we had good wifi and a TV with plenty of channels. The bathroom was great too with shampoo, shower gel and conditioner provided, plus nice hand soap and hand cream. There's also a lovely garden you can make use of with plenty of areas to sit and enjoy the scenery. Looking for an excuse to come back to Cornwall so we can stay here again! Loved it!
09/08/19 Alex J River Cottage Our stay at River Cottage was absolutely perfect. Julian and Kate were fantastic hosts taking time out to talk us through the local area and even finding more details on our specific interests. The cottage was spotlessly clean and decorated beautifully and in a very traditional English way, all set in magical gardens. Will definitely be back and cannot recommend highly enough.
04/08/2019 Ursula W Waterside Lovely place to be located in Cornwall. Beautiful country lanes and walks, close to Penzance and St. Ives. We really liked our stay and did a lot. Cottage was very well appointed and hosts friendly and helpful.
03/08/2019 Charlene K The Barn was surrounded by absolutely gorgeous countryside. It was very quite and peaceful. The location was perfect for exploring the west coast. It is only a short drive from St Ives, Penzance and many beautiful coves and beaches. The accommodation was spotless and very comfortable. It was a home from home. It had all the amenities needed to prepare meals if you wanted. Julian and Kate were great hosts. They communicated well and were there to let us in. We had a lovely stay at The Barn and would stay there again when visiting west Cornwall.”
30/07/2019 Susan B B&B A lovely sympathetic restoration of a barn to provide well appointed holiday accommodation. We had a lovely one night stay at our Bed and Breakfast barn. Beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Plenty of tea coffee and milk provided. Fresh fruit and yoghurt provided for breakfast with muesli granola and cornflakes and banana muffins. Julian our host was very helpful and friendly. Would certainly visit again.
26/07/2019 Maeve M River Cottage Classic country feel experience Although a little remote in feel it was only a short drive to all the must see places in Cornwall. The accommodation was a beautiful cozy old style cottage filled with lovely antiques and well equipped for cooking at home. My only recommendation would be a guest bbq in the lovely summer garden as the only outside eating area was not next to cottage.
17/07/19 Lianne S B&B We had a wonderful and unforgettable stay in the B&B suite! We were greeted with a warm welcome from Julian and Kate and they shared their local knowledge and secret spots for exploring the area during our stay which were just a short hop in the bus/taxi or drive away! The room was so clean, comfortable and beautifully laid out, with all the mod cons and nortical coastal charm and a picturesque outlook onto the communal area. The delicious breakfast of locally made and sourced food and drink were very thoughtful touches. Julian and Kate were super hosts, the location is ideal and the accomodation is by far the best in Cornwall that we have stayed in! We have recomended their place to our friends and family and we will be returning next year!!!!
09/07/2019 Hannah W B&B First night as husband and wife We booked Chypons Farm for 1 night on the 7th July, the day after our wedding in St Ives and it did not disappoint. Right from the beginning, Kate and Julian were so friendly and kind - you can tell they really take pride in their bnb. It is in an ideal location, with a lovely drive through the moor to St Ives. When we arrived Julian met us and showed us around, he was friendly and put us at ease. With the wedding being a few very full on days, Chypons Farm was the perfect little Eden to get away for a night after it all. Particularly liked the decor and the cow calling the next morning! We will be back next year.
07/07/19 Dave D B&B This has been our 3rd stay at Chypons and as perfect as the previous visits. We’ve stayed in both the B&B & in River cottage. Julian & Kate do a wonderful job at looking after you, the accommodation is beautiful with a great deal of thought and care gone into it. The location is so tranquil that you really are away from the hustle and bustle of life. Keep doing what you do at Chypons, it really is spot on!
07/07/2019 Susan R The Barn Warm welcome for a excellent break Excellent. Didn't want for anything. Hosts were wonderful. Easy to get to other places. Quiet relaxing.
2/7/19 Elaine N River cottage We had wonderful stay at River Cottage very cosy spotlessly clean and very well equipped.Julian and Kate are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble always available for recommending good places to visit and eat.Chypons farm is ideally situated for Lands End,St Michaels mount and the Lizard and for visiting and learning all about the history of mining in the area.We wouldnt hesitate to recommend this property to anyone looking for a peaceful retreat
01/06/19 Penny M B&B Fantastic stay in a beautifully restored barn. Very spacious for the 2 of us. Julian and Kate were wonderful hosts, giving us lots of ideas of places to visit and even supplying a rug for us to take to the Minnack Theatre. Breakfast was delicious.
01/06/19 Emma S River cottage “Julian & Kate were absolutely fantastic hosts - they went above and beyond what was expected and nothing was too much trouble. Before we'd even arrived they'd sent us a whole list of 'things to do', as well as very clear directions to the property (to avoid those narrow Cornish lanes) and even went as far as booking us a table at the local pub, The Engine Inn, so that we had dinner all sorted on the day of our arrival. When we arrived at the house we were greeted by the lovely Julian, who quickly showed us around and then left us to get settled in. River cottage was beautifully presented - immaculately clean, cute decor and plenty of room for the two of us (it would have easily fitted a small family). Already impressed with everything so far, we were then further treated to a cream tea (yum!) and lots of fresh flowers, cut from the garden, in the cottage too. The cottage itself was airy and clean, plenty of room to spread out and make ourselves at home. The other cottages nearby were also booked during our stay here and although we all shared the same courtyard (for parking) we never felt like we were overlooked by anyone and the cottages thick walls meant that noise was never an issue either. It is well located between St Ives and Penzance - away from the hustle and bustle of the fishing villages - we got to visit loads of different places over the course of the week. If you are planning to visit St Ives then I'd recommend parking at Lelant Saltings or Carbis Bay and catching the train to St Ives, as the coastal views from train ride were worth the fare alone, beautiful! Another highlight for us was our trip to Porthcurno beach and the Minack Theatre, an absolute must-see in my opinion. We also ventured 'north' to the Eden Project (took about an hour each way). We visited Land's End, walking along the coast from Land's End to Sennan Cove (quite an easy walk, suitable for most abilities) and also walked from Penzance to Marazion, where we then caught the boat over to St Michaels Mount. We also explored the ancient village of Chysauster (owned by English Heritage) which was only a few miles down the road from the cottage - ideal for those days when you don't fancy venturing too far. We really enjoyed our stay at River Cottage and would wholeheartedly recommend staying with Julian & Kate - they were superb hosts. We hope to come visit again some day soon!”
20/04/2019 Helen T via Airbnb The Barn “We had a wonderful week staying at the cottage. The hosts were welcoming and thoughtful, the place was spotlessly clean and the surroundings were absolutely beautiful. It is a perfect location for exploring both coasts and the amazing beaches of Cornwall. We’d highly recommend staying at the cottage and would like to thank Julian and Kate for hosting such a lovely holiday. We’ll definitely be back!” “Thank-you for being such thoughtful and friendly hosts. We all loved staying at the cottage :)”

15/1/19 Robert Chypons Barn was such a lovely place to stay, very quiet and in a rural location but very close to St Ives and Penzance. Our stay was part holiday and part business and the barn had everything we could have asked for.
01/2019 Lydia W Waterside from Airbnb. We have had a wonderful stay at this cosy, rural cottage. The house was clean, warm and welcoming with everything that we needed for our visit. Our hosts were close by and readily available. Thank you for making our New Years Eve break extra special. We had a great time in St Ives and your accommodation was a pleasure to return to after our trips out. Happy New Year fr Lydia, Bob and Chris
24//18 from Google with ****** The Barn Beth B Stayed here for 6 nights, And it was lovely. The barn is where we stayed and I really can not give our vist a bad word. Lots to do near, and lots of place to eat. Our stay was fantastic, The barn was lovely, tidy and clean. Very comfy bed too! Julian you was a fabulous host. Thank you very much. See you soon.
03/11/2018 River cottage Laura D “We stayed in River Cottage and it was wonderfully warm and cosy inside with all the necessary amenities. We had delicious scones on arrival and were greeted warmly by Julian, who was very helpful and gave us ideas of where best to go and where to eat nearby. The cottage is perfectly placed to explore South Cornwall being halfway between Penzance and St Ives, and we managed to visit some lovely places such as Land`s End, Marazion and Porthcurno, which was well worth a visit at sunset. We had a brilliant time and want to thank Julian and Kate for being so welcoming and informative throughout our stay!”
06/10/18 BnB suite Gill P Chypons Farm is way above any other B&B where we have stayed. A beautiful room and very comfortable bed. Pretty garden. Julian and Kate have thought of everything to make our stay such a pleasure. Very well situated for St Ives, St Michaels Mount and the Cornish coast. In the room there is all the information needed about restaurants and things to do. We had some good meals at the White Hart at Ludgvan
16/09/2018 Roy F BnB “Quite simply a delightful spot to spend some time. Julian & Kate are exemplary hosts and gave us a lovely welcome upon arrival. In need of a bit of info and some sign-posting, they kindly organised dinner at a local spot, The Winners Arms, after a few suggestions, which was very enjoyable. The room feels very welcoming and spacious, with plenty of expected bits and nice touches to make you feel relaxed and ready to forget about travels, routine and anything else that you've escaped from. Lovely outside garden, summer house to find some books and games in and, all-in-all, a place to discover and enjoy.”
13/9/18 MG BnB “Wir hatten sehr schöne Tage bei Julian und Kate! Die Unterkunft ist sehr großzügig, sauber und ausgesprochen geschmackvoll eingerichtet! Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt! Auf den ersten Blick liegt „Chypons Farm“ mitten im nirgendwo. Nach ein paar Ausflügen ist uns aber aufgefallen wie unglaublich Central die Unterkunft liegt und wir hatten zu all unseren Zielen sehr kurze Wege! Zudem hat Julian unseren Aufenthalt mit seinen Tipps sehr bereichert. Wir sind Ihnen gefolgt und hatten unvergessliche Tage dort!” "We had very nice days with Julian and Kate! The accommodation is very spacious, clean and very tastefully decorated! We felt very comfortable there! At first glance, Chypons Farm is in the middle of nowhere. After a few excursions we noticed how unbelievable Central the accomodation is and we had very short distances to all our destinations! In addition, Julian has enriched our stay with his tips. We followed you and had unforgettable days there! "
7/8/18 AS B&B Wonderful place to stay, so peaceful. Everything was perfect. The location is just right for all your sightseeing. We stayed at the B and B and would highly recommend it,the decor is beautiful, with the most comfortable bed. Fresh muffins every morning makes the stay heavenly. We will definitely be rebooking a holiday here again, really sad to leave. Thank you Julian and Kate for a much needed rest. Anna and Jonathan South Wales
24/8/18 HR Waterside This was our a second stay here at Waterside cottage. We enjoyed our stay this time as much as our first time. The cottage had everything we needed, and Julian was a great host , even giving us a lift into town when our Taxi did not turn up. It is a lovely base for exploring Cornwall. We enjoyed our welcoming present with a bottle of Prosecco, scones, jam and clotted cream. Thankyou for a lovely holiday, from Matt, Louise, Hannah and Sophie Redfern.
11/9/18 S T Waterside We had a great holiday in August staying in Waterside Cottage. The cottage was super clean, cosy, well equipped and nicely decorated. Julian and Kate were always on hand if needed giving us local knowledge and recommendations. There was a lovely garden to relax in. Great location between St Ives and Penzance. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend. A great place to stay. Steph, Robin, Iona and Claire.
19/07/2018 B H River Cottage Rural Relaxation! Wonderful relaxing week in 'home from home' cottage. Friendly welcome from owners who are on hand if needed, with plenty of tips for places to explore/eat out. Lovely garden to relax in at the end of day's exploring with local pubs in the area offering great food and ale. Plenty of landmarks and places to visit within easy driving distance. Highly recommended for a relaxing holiday, enjoying Cornish hospitality and scenery.
17/07/2018 River Cottage BL "Stepping into the space took our breaths away! Spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, and unexpectedly kind touches (homemade scones and jam, clotted cream and milk from the neighboring farm). Helpful travel tips and a beautiful garden topped it off. This was a wonderful stay"
27/06/2018 Simon A Farm cottage. Simply charming...the cottage is beautiful and Julian and Kate are wonderful hosts. Ideal location for exploring the south of Cornwall. Highly recommended. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay at Chypons Farm Cottage. We have all had such a lovely time and absolutely loved the cottage. Our little girls loved their sea side bedroom and enjoyed running to the summer house and exploring the garden. The cottage was so charming and the commodities were all there. Your hospitality was very much appreciated and the scones were fantastic. Thank you both so much for making our Cornish holiday a wonderful experience. Best wishes to you both, Stephen, Florina, Malcolm, Susan, Maia and Sara
24 June River Cottage Franz L “Julian und seine Frau waren perfekte und freundliche Gastgeber. Das Cottage war sehr sauber und liebevoll eingerichtet und eine voll ausgestattete Küche. Zur Begrüßung gab es köstliche Scones mit leckeren Topping. Sehr gut ruhige Lage zum erholen. Idealer Ausgangspunkt für Ausflügen um den Westen des Cornwall zu erkunden.”
09/06/ From our BNB We were welcomed by Julian, who showed us where to park and walked us around the studio apartment. He took the time to explain everything and answer any questions we had. The standard of the studio is excellent, one of the best we have experienced, quality furniture, sofa, tv, everything you would want and need during a stay. The studio was spotless, cannot fault it at all. The breakfast was a vast choice of local produce, fruit, fresh muffins (Kate even asked what flavour we would like!) yoghurt, cereals, everything and more. The outside space was extensive, calming and beautifully maintained. I can only highly recommend a stay at Chypons Farm and Julian and Kate’s hospitality. In fact my sister and I could have just moved in and we will definitely be returning soon. Thanks Julian and Kate. Tips for other travellers Chypons Farm is centrally located to everything you would want to see in Cornwall. Good position for north and south coasts. Julian has a vast knowledge of the area and all it’s amenities. Sculpture Gardens, St Michaels Mount, it’s so close to everything, so good a position to visit the main attractions.
13 June 2018 River Cottage 5 Stars from SS. Fabulous accommodation in a really beautiful location. The cottage is gorgeous, spotlessly clean with lots of home comforts and great all round facilities. Julian and Kate are lovely hosts, really helpful and it was a pleasure to stay at River Cottage.Thanks to you both for your wonderful hospitality. We had a really fabulous few days in River Cottage and absolutely loved it. The trip out to Zennor was amazing, thanks for the recommendation and also thanks for the lift down into St Ives. Best wishes to you both
11 April The Barn David S A beautiful cottage that felt like home straight away. Clean, warm and well equipped. Everything we needed. The scones and jam that were left for us were amazing!
09 Apr 2018 Tanya The Barn. We had a wonderfully relaxing 4 night stay in ‘The Barn’ cottage. Julian and Kate made us very welcome and have equipped the cottage with everything you could possibly need for a perfect stay. We will certainly be returning in the future. Tips for other travellers Tremenheere sculpture garden and Trebah gardens were both lovely places to visit, neither of them being too crowded. Views over to St Michael’s Mount from the top of Tremenheere were stunning. A train trip in to St Ives from Lelant Saltings park and ride is well worth it. Views across the bay and no stress with trying to find a parking space in St Ives.
01/04/2018 Airbnb 5 Star review by Erin BnB Suite “Julian & Kate were fantastic hosts for our Cornwall visit. On the first day, they showed us around the space and gave us great suggestions for places to see along the coast. The room we stayed in was so beautiful, spacious, clean, and had everything we needed including tasty Cornish breakfast treats. We would strongly suggest to anyone coming to St Ives or the surrounding area to stay in this peaceful Bnb. We definitely plan on coming back next time we're in the area!”
18/08/18 5* review from Facebook Dave D This place is amazing, loved it so much last year we are returning for Easter! The rooms or cottages and wonderfully set out, the hosts are welcoming and knowledgable and where its situated you can get anywhere in cornwall easily! Fab place
01/01/2018 Facebook review with 5* Absolutely wonderful. We stayed in the self catering cottage over Christmas this time. The cottage was lovely and warm and it felt like home from home. It was clean, well equipped, beautifully decorated and the beds were very comfy! Julian and Kate are lovely people and can't do enough for you. There was even a lovely surprise gift and Christmas card waiting for us when we arrived... Along with some delicious home made mince pies! We stayed in the bed and breakfast accommodation in September 2017 and were so pleased with the accommodation, situation, the care and little touches that we returned! The gardens are also lovely for relaxing in and listening to the bird song. I have no hesitation in recommending Chypons Farm as the place to stay when visiting the area. Excellent all round. We will be staying there again this year!
7/10/17 Chypons BnB Christine Superb accommodation with every comfort. Spotless. Great base for touring especially when you can return at the end of a busy day to such a relaxing and comfortable place to stay. Just the right level of care and attention from very welcoming hosts. We will definitely stay here again, since it was a real gem.
20/8/17 Waterside - Lauren's Mum aged 36 A return visit to your beautiful cottage, and just as perfect as our first stay. We spent most of our time at Perranuthnoe away from the crowds. Thank you for telling us about this wonderful beach. We loved your suggestion of Porthleven as well, best fish and chips we've found in Cornwall. A week is never enough!! p.s Lauren also loves the smell of Cornwall towels. See you again next year.
20/08/17 Waterside by Lauren aged 8 We really enjoyed our stay at this cottage and will definitely come again. Your suggestion to go crabbing was great, and we will try it on our nearby beaches. We loved Perranuthnoe, and we found some nice rocks which we put in your plant pot. I hope to come here again as your cottage is lovely, and so is the countryside view. The garden is lovely too, but I've had 2 snails on my window. Everything about it is lovely, and I am pleased to say how you have put so much effort into it.
14/8/17 Waterside Denzil M On arrival the best cream teas in Cornwall. Hosts Julian & Kate very helpful indeed with local information. Accommodation spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Everything we possibly needed was in the cottage. Definitely recommend.
13/08/17 Chypons BnB Lesley H What can I say that hasn't already been said. Excellent, Excellent Excellent all round. Great hosts, great accommodation in the b&b converted barn. We would like to have stayed longer. Thank-you Kate & Julian, sorry we did get to see you before we left we really enjoyed our stay. Jack & I will certainly recommend your place to friends coming over from New Zealand
31/07/17 River Cottage Liam R Beautiful cottage set in an undisturbed country farmyard. River cottage is gorgeous combining historical character with all the mod-cons. Highly recommended.
28/6/17 River Cottage Pat T Delightful cottage River cottage is delightful. Situated in a peaceful location but close enough to plenty of places and attractions to visit, situated almost halfway between St. Ives and Penzance. Julian and Kate are attentive hosts, and gave us a wealth of information both before we arrive and during our stay, nothing was too much trouble for them. The cottage was very comfortable, immaculately clean, and we even had a delicious cream tea awaiting us on arrival, as well as milk in the fridge and tea and sugar provided. So we enjoyed that in the garden which also has a summerhouse for less warm days I guess. We were blessed with really good weather all week, so that was a bonus to a very enjoyable stay. When visiting St. Ives, we took the train from Levant Saltings after parking the car at the Park & Ride there. We also visited Falmouth and also left the car at the Park & Float and got the Ferry into one of the Quays in Falmouth.
26/06/2017 Farm Cottage James P Lovely We had a lovely stay at Chypons farm. It was spotlessly clean and well presented, furnished with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The hosts Kate and Julian were friendly and helpful, offering suggestions of places we might want to visit and ensuring we had everything we needed. We had a 16 month old toddler with us, so a cot, high chair and stair gates were all provided to help us. Chypons farm is well located half way between Penzance and St Ives, we were able to visit all of West Cornwall from the cottage. Thanks for everything!
Mon 15/05/2017 Farm Cottage Wayne S Review title Excellent stay great location Review We travelled all the way from malta for a great week at the chypons cottage. The location was perfect as it was between st ives and penzance. We have a 2 year old boy and Julian the host was very accommodating, ensuring we had a high chair, a cot and safety gates for the stairs. The cleanliness of the cottage was immaculate so our first impression was fantastic. There are local walks around the cottage and towns close by so this location would accommodate for every type of holiday you are looking for. Thank you from Malta. Would definitely recommend this cottage for anyone looking for a trip to Cornwall.
Wed 07/06/2017 HazelD The Barn Loved our visit to Chypon''s! I stayed in Chypon's barn with my two daughters (9 and 6) for a week 27/05/17-03/06/17. The barn was lovely, we were greeted by Julian on our arrival who showed us around the barn. The barn is neat, very clean and well equipped. I really appreciated the fresh flowers and cornish cream tea that was waiting after a long drive! The barn is perfectly situated to explore Cornwall. We were able to see and do so much in our week and Julian was on hand to provide us with local knowledge about where to visit which helped alot! We went seal watching, horse riding and to attractions such as the Geevor Tin Mine and Eden Project. My children adored playing with Julian and Kates dog, Dennis. It was the highlight of the holiday for them! The garden at Chypon's farm is lovely too and we enjoyed a picnic in the garden when the weather was nice. Would absolutely recommend and would love to stay again!
Mon 08/05/2017 What a gem! We stayed in Chypons Barn for a week. The Barn is wonderful, it has lots of space, it was very clean and very complete. Julian and Kate made us feel very welcome. We were pleasantly surprised by the lovely scones, stawberry jam and clotted cream that was ready for us when we arrived! Of course we ate them the 'Cornish' way. Julian had a lot of useful tips about places to visit and he also knows the best pubs to go to for a lovely meal. I recommend The Barn to everyone! We certainly hope to come again.
Wed 19/04/2017 River Cottage A really nice place to stay We stayed for 3 nights over the Easter weekend and had a great time. The cottage was lovely and we were provided with essentials (homemade scones, clotted cream & Jam) to help us settle in after a long Journey. We were made very welcome and Julian helped with recommendations on places to visit. The cottage is in a good location to explore Cornwall with both the north and south coast within easy reach. The only problem was that we didn't stay for long enough.
Sat 22/04/2017 Waterside Wonderful short family Easter break in a beautiful and well equipped cottage We booked last minute and were not disappointed. A home from home in beautiful countryside near St Ives with homemade scones awaiting us on arrival. The cottage was very well equipped, comfortable and warm with easy access to the main towns and villages nearby. The owners were super helpful in offering local advice of what was worth visiting during our short stay. We would highly recommend staying here.
Tue 18/04/2017 Fantastic location, lovely accomodation Had a super stay at Chypons Barn, it was easy to find and a great location, not far from St Ives. The owners were helpful and friendly, and gave us some great suggestions for evening meals. The accomodation was delightful, just like the pictures, and everything was clean. We only used the kitchen for breakfast as we were out and about during the day and ate out in the evening so we didn't use the kitchen much. I'd definitely stay there again.
Sun 16/04/2017 What a gem Well we wanted to go to St. Ives but couldn't find anywhere to say. Then I stumbled upon this lovely place and it was really great. Being able to pull up and park with your car is not usually possible in central St. Ives but the cottage was only a 10 minute drive away and with wonderful rolling hills and views this was very pleasant. We arrived to fresh scones and clotted cream and jam and the place was very comfortable. Our kids loved it and the shower was v good also.
Sun 16/04/2017 River Cottage home from home lovely Lovely cottage very well presented, good location for st Ives. The owner was very helpful, would definitely stay again.
Wed 05/04/2017 Barn LS Best dog-friendly accommodation I''ve ever stayed in! A fabulous stay at Chypons Barn. The barn itself is very clean, beautifully decorated and everything is of excellent quality. All of the small touches are thought of, from dishwasher tablets, teabags and milk, information packs about the area right through to homemade scones upon arrival (which were lovely!). The hosts are very friendly and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. They provided some great recommendations for restaurants in the area. The bed was very comfortable and the barn has everything you might need for a comfortable stay. We had a great time and would love to stay again, 10/10!
Farm cottage Tue 28/03/2017 John H My stay at Chypons Farm was lovely. Julian & Kate were very warm & welcoming. The cottage itself was beautiful. Couldnt have asked for more. Will definitely be staying again
March 19, 2017 David C via TripAdvisor with 5 stars River Cottage. Riverside is a fantastic cottage. Its roomly sitting room with beautiful antique furniture and large comfortable winged arm chairs is a joy to come back to. The down stairs shower and toilet plus the upstairs bathroom and toilet gives a lot of flexibility. The main bedroom is large, the single room spacious again with lovely antique furniture. St. Ives is only 3 miles away and in season I suspect best visited by bus which stops just near the cottage. The location is quite and peaceful and well placed to visit all the attractions Cornwall has to offer. I usually never go back to the same place but like to explore other options. This is an exception. The owners are very friendly and helpful. There is everything you would want including all those small things you forgot to bring like tin foil.
12/1/17 12:38 David and Carol O River Cottage We highly recommend Chypons; we treated ourselves to a two week holiday in River Cottage and it really was a lovely treat. We had home made scones, jam and Cornish clotted cream ready on our arrival which was very welcome and a lovely treat especially as it was our wedding anniversary. We found the accommodation really comfortable, clean and homely and enjoyed the luxury of having the two bathrooms. We had stayed at Chypons previously (in Waterside cottage) and had no hesitation in booking to return again knowing the high standard of holiday accommodation on offer.
3/1/17 18:21 Farm Cottage Meg K We had a very lovely stay at the Farm Cottage with our family of 5. It was a quiet getaway that offered all we needed for a break for a few days over the new year weekend. Our children (ages 9,18, and 19) were thrilled to have wifi and the location was ideal for exploring the area around Penzance and St Ives. There was a courtesy bottle of champagne and chocolates waiting for us...thank you Kate & Julian for such a lovely welcome. It would be great to go back one day.
02-Nov-16 10:04 AM Marie A Farm Cottage Really enjoyable stay The photo's of this property do not do it justice, it is quirky, prettily decorated, warm and very well equipped. We were welcomed with everything to make tea or coffee as well as lovely home made scones with jam and clotted cream, much appreciated. The location is great between St Ives and Penzance so not far to drive to get to all the lovely places around there.
Mon 17-Oct-16 9:30 AM Waterside Harriet S.B. Wonderful, We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chypons Waterside. Kate and Julian were very accommodating. The house was clean, modern and tidy. We were left some milk, tea and coffee as we arrived the early hours of the morning. We are already looking at going back early next year and can't wait.
Sat 08-Oct-16 4:58 PM Waterside Trudie B. A lovely weekend break. Lovely quaint cottage, situated in lovely countryside not far from St Ives and Penzance. Although we arrived quite late due to traffic, we had a warm friendly greeting by Julian one of the owners and were left some lovely freshly baked Cornish scones, jam and clotted cream. The cottage was lovely and cosy, clean and very welcoming. We were not too far away from the train station and enjoyed our short train journey into St .Ives on Saturday, and the fare was reasonably priced too. We hope to come back and stay there again in the near future. Will definitely recommend it to family and friends.
5/10/16 11:03 What a cracking little find. We arrived late at night still to be met by the owner Julian to greet us. Waterside cottage was lovely and cosy, great location. Had delicious scones with jam and cream left for us by the hosts Kate and Julian, will definitely recommend Chypons and hopefully go back again
Mon 03-Oct-16 1:35 PM Waterside Gary S. We enjoyed a great week in the lovely, cosy, clean and well appointed cottage. The hosts Julian and Kate were very welcoming and helpful. They provided us with valuable local information. It was in a good location between St Ives and Penzance. After touring and sight seeing it was a quiet, relaxing cottage to come back to. We would definitely recommend Chypons and will hopefully go back again.
Mon 03-Oct-16 7:37 AM The Barn Kim A. Wow! What a wonderful Barn to stay in. Chypons Barn is such lovely accommodation located between St Ives and Penzance. Great to visit south Cornwall. We were met on our arrival by Julian and a delicious cream tea with fresh scones baked by Kate which after a long journey was much appreciated. The Barn was spacious and well equipped and provided us with a homely base for our holiday. The owners were more than helpful providing advice and information about the locality. Poppy the Jack Russell loved it and made herself at home. The Barn is only a few minutes drive from the A30, which allowed us to easily get to places such as The Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, amd Healeys Cyder farm all highly recommended. Lands End is not far and we enjoyed the amazing scenery and coastal walks there. Note that once you have paid for parking there you can return for no additional cost multiple times during a 7 day period. We would recommend parking at Lelant Saltings park and ride amd taking the train into picturesque St Ives. The harbour town is quaint with lots of cafes, restaurants, galleries and independent shops! The fish and chips here were delicious. We will definantly be returning not only to Cornwall but also Chypons Barn. Loved it! Thank You!
Tue 13-Sep-16 8:55 Bekki H. The Barn. A lovely week in Cornwall. This is a great base to explore the west of Cornwall. The owners are a mine of information about where to visit and to eat. We took our dog with us and he was made to feel very welcome to. The cottage was very clean and welcoming and contained everything we needed. We would stay here again if we returned to visit this part of the world.
10/9/16 12:07 Just spent a week at Waterside Cottage which was excellent. It was beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable. Kate & Julian were helpful hosts and provided a delicious cream tea on arrival. We had a thoroughly enjoyable week with glorious weather. We hope to return at some other time.
Tue 23-Aug-16 1:28 PM Excellent cottage, excellent location, excellent hosts. On our arrival we were greeted by Julian & Kate and were given a guided tour of the cottage which is lovely, there were home made scones, home made jam and clotted cream in the fridge. Milk and teabags were also available. The facilities were excellent, nothing was overlooked, little touches like dishwasher tablets, toilet and kitchen rolls, washing up liquid etc. The garden is lovely and very well tended with a summerhouse full of helpful brochures and information for holidaymakers use, Julian & Kate are wonderful hosts and full of interesting and useful advice on the best beaches, walks, eating out, nothing was too much trouble we just had to ask. We were only there for a week and it was not long enough to see and do everything that was available, we would definitely visit again. Highly recommended, thank you Chypons Barn for a wonderful holiday. Kind regards Dave & Karen Ashby
Sun 21- Aug-16 15:15PM Copied from Facebook 5* Rhoda Cooper A perfect place to stay to enjoy St Ives and the surrounding area. Gorgeous beaches and great places to eat are all within a short drive. This is the second time that we have stayed at Chypons Farm. The cottage is beautiful and has absolutely everything you need. There is also a lovely garden and summer house which the kids enjoyed playing in. Thank you to Julian and Kate for all the helpful tips and particularly the cream teas on arrival.
Fri 12- Aug-16 8:11PM Copied from Facebook 5* Jemma T Waterside. Beautiful cottage and surroundings with fab hosts. Perfect place to base your holiday with everything you might need (good to come home with very little washing to do) Julian gave us many top tips and we are so glad that he did, the beaches he suggested were perfect for our little family with small people
Wed 03-Aug-16 2:58 PM NH Waterside Cottage was delightful! Just how I imagined a Cornish cottage should be. It was in excellent condition, well maintained and perfectly located. The gardens and summer house provided a great outdoor area to relax in of an evening. The lack of mobile signal in the cottages was more than made up for by the strength of the wifi and Kate/Julian's willingness to order taxi's if required. Both Kate and Julian were great hosts, providing ideas for days out, places to eat etc. Nothing was too much trouble and they couldn't have been more helpful. I would recommend Chypons Waterside without hesitation.
Tue 02-Aug-16 8:11 PM WS Farm Cottage Brilliant quiet location with everything you could need provided in the cottage. Stayed in the farm cottage as a family of six. We had a wonderful time spent in beautiful surroundings. The location was quiet, relaxing and equidistant to Penzance and St Ives. Good restaurants and pubs all within a short distance. The cottage was sparkling clean with everything provided you could possibly need. Our youngest daughter was introduced to Swingball (down at the summer house in the gardens around the cottage) The owners have fantastic local knowledge and are able to recommend places to eat, drink or explore. The location was very good for heading to Lands End, St Just and any number of the more southern Cornish spots. We had a very relaxing week and would highly recommend staying here.
Wed 27-Jul-16 7:44 PM Colin H Despite a later-than-planned arrival at Chypons farm, we were warmly greeted by Julian who quickly showed us into The Barn, and showed us where everything was. The accommodation was very comfortable and spacious and ideal for our purposes. We were very fortunate to be in Cornwall for the best weather of the year so far, and enjoyed an excellent week, getting out and about to many familiar haunts and a few new and interesting locations. Julian and Kate were very helpful with information and ideas for places to visit, and some excellent pubs and restaurants. We hope to return to Chypons again for a future holiday.
Sunday 3 July, 2016 8:15 PM Eddie M River cottage Chypons Farm is nestled away in the peace and quiet of the Cornish countryside. Julian and Kate were a mine of useful information helping out with OS maps and good advice. River Cottage was spotlessly clean and well presented. The cream tea on arrival was very much appreciated. The perfect base for touring beautiful Cornwall and a lovely comfortable cottage to come back to. An absolute delight. Thank you.
Mon 27-Jun-16 7:33 AM Farm Cottage JS We are delighted that we found Chypons Farm Cottages. We had a most enjoyable and relaxing stay. Kate and Julian made us feel very welcome, starting with the cream tea that was waiting for us when we arrived. The cottage was well equipped and very attractively presented - we had everything we needed for a very pleasant stay. Chypons Farm is very well situated for St Ives and North and West Cornwall, and we thoroughly recommend it.
Friday 17th June 08:43 Copied from Facebook 5* Sorry to be leaving so soon. Lovely time, once more, at Chypons. David delighted with internet download speed (fast) and I delighted with the cream tea that awaits your arrival. Oscar and Ruby loved The Cottage and can't wait to romp on the beaches again. Big Thank you :)
Tue 14-Jun-16 8:33 PM We had an excellent holiday at Chypons Waterside. The cottage was in a perfect location between St. Ives and Penzance, and within easy travelling distance to west Cornwall's beautlful countryside and coast. The owners of the cottage welcomed us with a traditional cream tea, and were extremely helpful advising on suitable walks, local attractions and places to eat. The cottage was quiet and peaceful with access to a lovely summer house and secluded garden. The cottage was comfortable and well equipped.
12/6/16 08:43 BH Had a wonderful time in river cottage. It had everything we needed. And was extremely clean. In a lovely setting not far from St Ives. The owners could not have been more helpful. Would love to stay again.
4th June 2016 Copied from Facebook V B reviewed Chypons Farm – 5 star · A great stay in Farm Cottage. Excellent accommodation for family groups wanting to holiday together. Ideal location, just a short drive to St Ives and Penzance. Lots to do in the local area, including beautiful sandy beaches. Would highly recommend these cottages.
Sunday 15th May copied from Facebook with 5 Stars DM We just spent a wonderful week in the barn with our dog. It was scruplously clean and fully equipped. Julian and Kate are wonderful hosts nothing too much trouble and a font of knowledge. They left fresh flowers and a Cornish cream tea what a lovely touch. Central for all the places of interest. We would have no qualms of revisiting and can really recommend . Thank you both for a wonderful stay.
Sunday 15th May copied from Facebook with 5 Stars MJ Myself and my best friend spent 4 wonderful days at the Chypons Farm in the Barn Cottage. What a beautiful setting,remote enough to find peace and tranquillity but close enough to so many great places. The cottage was not at all what we expected from a holiday home as it was spacious and comfortable and extremely well equipped. Not something you find very often. The hosts, Julian and Kate, well..... you will have a hard time finding better. It was our first time in Cornwall but definitely not the last.
Sun 24-Apr-16 11:34 AM Margaret T River Cottage Booked last minute to have a break in area of Cornwall where family came from.5/5 Booked at last minute but couldn't have been happier with the location and accommodation. We stayed in River Cottage and it was very well furnished and was just what we had hoped for, a home from home. The downstairs shower room was an excellent facility. The owners were very welcoming and there were fresh flowers and a cream tea waiting for us on arrival. Location was perfect as you could easily reach both the south and north coast in a very short time, with lots of places to visit easily in a day. Copy of review submitted on Up front reviews

27-Mar-16 8:00 PM Carol O Waterside Review title :- A lovely comfortable and homely stay. My husband and I returned from a lovely week in Cornwall having booked a late availability deal here at Chypons Farm. The farm buildings have been converted to a high standard and Waterside Cottage was well equipped and well furnished, tastefully decorated and homely and suited our needs perfectly with the added nicety of fresh flowers on our arrival. Our local bread, eggs and veg from a local farm were waiting for us on arrival (pre ordered just a few days earlier). Julian and Kate are friendly hosts and are on hand for any local information that may be required (there is also local tourist info in the cottage). No mobile phone signal but free WiFi. Chypons farm is in a good location and in a very scenic area. We visited Penzance, St Ives, Zennor, St Just, Heligan, Porthleven, Marazion, Trengwainton Gardens and Godrevy. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing Cornwall in the spring with lovely daffodils in the fields, road sides and verges plus a lot of yellow gorse in bloom. Copy of review submitted on Up front reviews
27/9/15 21:00 Amanda M The Barn Fabulous week stay at the barn. The accommodation is beautiful, home from home. Lovely home made scones jam and clotted cream waiting for us from our hosts Kate and Julian.The local farm shop is a must. Our rotty Bella had a lovely time .
21/9/15 19:51 Sybil W River Cottage. We have just returned home having spent a week staying in River Cottage, Chypons Farm. What a delightful cottage. We endorse everything Jenny Van T wrote about it. Everything we wanted was there - and more! We thought the wet room fantastic. We are already recommending the cottage to friends who may be interested in a holiday in this part of Cornwall.
21-Sep-15 11:35 AM Colin C Farm Cottage Had an excellent 2 weeks in the lovely Chypons Barn. Spotlessly clean, and well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Such a peaceful and relaxing setting. The friendly owners, Julian & Kate, were always on hand to offer help and guidance for things to do in the area. The homemade scones on arrival were a lovely and delicious touch. We highly recommend Chypons, and will definitely be back !
15-Sep-15 9:57 PM Nei C Farm Cottage beautiful holiday cottage, in the perfect South Corwall location. Fantastic Cornish holiday spent in a very beautiful holiday cottage, with perfect location, for access to all South Cornwal has to offer. The accommodation offers everything you could possibly need and is perfect for young families. Julian and Kate were the perfect hosts, who couldn't do enough for us and provided traditional Cornish cream tea in the cottage on arrival.
06/09/2015 10:39 Jenny Van T River Cottage Beautifully appointed cottage in a peaceful location. This is a lovely cottage, and we really liked the tasteful furnishings and the thought that had gone into setting it up for comfort and convenience. The beds are comfortable and it's great having a bathroom and a shower room, facilities that in my experience cottages dont often have. The kitchen is well set up, with a dishwasher as well. There isn't a washing machine but there is a laundry room next door where you can use the washing machines, and we thought that was actually much better. The cottage is in a great location - you can hear the sound of the river and it was nice for us townie types to be somewhere cool and peaceful. There is a nature reserve just up the road for interesting walks, some good eating pubs nearby, and a lovely garden and summerhouse with a barbecue. This is a very special part of Cornwall, with something for everyone e.g great beaches, St Ives just down the road, tea rooms, potteries, art galleries, Neolithic sites, museums, you name it. The cottage owners are very helpful, friendly and informative, and all in all, we had a great couple of weeks.
Facebook review 24/08/15 – 5 star My family and I have just returned from a third successive stay at Chypons Farm. Kate and Julian always provide a warm welcome and the cottages well furnished and clean. We did not hesitate to take my in-laws with us this year. Chypons Farm is ideally located for exploring the area from St Ives in the north, to Penzance in the South and West to Lands End. The Lizard peninusla is within 30 minutes drive. We can totally recommend The Barn for families with one child, and Farm Cottage for larger groups. Happy Holidays!
“Beautiful cottage, perfect location, highly recommended” 5 of 5 starsReviewed August 6, 2015 (from Trip Advisor) Beautiful cottage, very clean and with everything you need. Juilan and his wife are so welcoming, making sure we had a stocked fridge with butter and wonderful steaks from the local farm shop. Perfectly located for St Ives and St Michaels mount. Highly recommend taking a drive along the wonderful bays near- go for a walk in Prussia Cove. The hosts are very welcoming and the cottage is wonderfully comfortable, highly recommend either for a relaxing get away or base to visit a range of areas near by! Also lovely cones and cream left as a little treat from the hosts is always a winner with me! Thanks again!!
12/8/15 21:03 Jodie C Waterside Facebook review Spent a fantastic week here in Waterside Cottage. Beautiful location and cottage was superb. Very friendly hosts with lots of information available. Excellent for accessing beaches at St Ives and also for Marazion, St Michaels Mount and Porthcurno. Lovely inland walks too. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a lovely holiday retreat.
3/8/15 19:50 Michael B The Barn Super time had in the Barn Cottage @ Chypons Farm. Everything we needed supplied including good weather .Comfy beds, great garden to relax in. Good days out at Tremenheere riding stables and coast 2 coast karting. Many thanks for a great holiday.
17/6/15 18:44 Jill P River Cottage These are lovely cottages in a great location. They are especially well kitted out and really feel like home-from-home. Kate and Julian were extremely welcoming and helpful hosts throughout our stay, but especially helping us get back on the road when my car broke down on our last day.
Thu 11/06/2015 13:00 Farm Cottage Peter G. In May 2015 we had two wonderful and relaxing weeks in Chypons Farm cottage, where we felt extremely comfortable. The cottage is very clean, distinctly cosy and has a tasteful interior – there was nothing we missed. The property includes a beautiful and well-groomed garden with a little summer house. The owners Kate and Julian are very nice and gave us a warm and hearty welcome and supplied us with valuable tipps during our stay. The weather allowed us daily trips from which we especially liked the plenty wonderful gardens, Saint-Michaels-Mount, the Minack-theatre and Lanhydrock with its great manor. We can also recommend two pretty tea rooms which are located nearby the Chyphons Farm: - the „Penderleath Tea Room“ (opposite oft the Engine Inn) which has delicious cakes and scones, - „Zennor Chapel Guesthouse“ where the ploughman’s lunch is very recommendable! Furthermore we can recommend: - the „Engine-Inn“, a very cosy pub nearby with good bar meal and an acoustic night with live music each Tuesday evening, - „The Lodge@Balnoon“ – a nice inn with good food at a reasonable price and a carvery each Sunday noon and evening. - Also all the other pubs and tea rooms we visited in this region were very nice and had a great service and extremely friendly personal. We experienced the locals in general as most friendly, hearty and helpful. We felt very comfortable at the Chypons Farm and the whole region. Im Mai 2015 verbrachten wir zwei wunderschöne und erholsame Ferienwoche im Farm-Cottage. Wir haben uns dort ausgesprochen wohl gefühlt. Das Cottage ist sehr sauber und ausgesprochen gemütlich und geschmackvoll eingerichtet – es fehlte uns an nichts. Zum Grundstück gehört auch ein hübscher und sehr gepflegter Garten mit Sommerhaus. Die Besitzer, Kate und Julian, sind sehr nett und haben uns sehr herzlich empfangen und uns während unseres Aufenthalts mit guten Tipps versorgt. Das Wetter ermöglichte tägliche Ausflüge. Besonders gefallen haben uns die wunderbaren Gärten, Saint-Michaels-Mount, das Minack-Theatre und Lanhydrock mit seinem großartigen Herrenhaus. Empfehlen können wir zwei hübsche Cafés ganz in der Nähe von Chypons Farm „Penderleath Tea Room“ (gegenüber Engine Inn): mit sehr gutem Kuchen „Zennor Chapel Guesthouse“: der Ploughman’s Lunch ist sehr empfehlenswert! außerdem den „Engine-Inn“, ein sehr gemütliches Pub in der Nähe mit gutem Bar Meal, vor allem aber die „acoustic night“ am Dienstagabend, wenn dort Live-Musik gespielt wird und „The Lodge @ Balnoon“, ein Inn, in dem es gutes Essen zu fairen Preisen gibt, jeden Sonntagmittag und abends „Carvery“ (Buffet) und in dem man hübsch sitzt. Auch alle anderen Pubs und Tea Rooms, die wir in der Region besucht haben, waren sehr schön und wir wurden überall ausgesprochen gut und freundlich bedient. Auch die einheimische Bevölkerung haben wir als ausgesprochen freundlich, herzlich und hilfsbereit empfunden. Wir haben uns auf Chypons Farm und in der gesamten Region sehr wohl gefühlt.
29/05/2015 19:42 The Barn From Facebook Tim Boyle – 5 star Our first trip to Cornwall has been unbelievable. There are so many places to go and things to do in this wonderful county. "Chypons farm" was a perfect location. The Barn was a perfect self catering accommodation. Very comfortable! The facilities were well thought out for a perfect holiday. Kate and Julian made us very welcome and went out of there way to ensure we had fabulous time. We will be back! Tim Lisa Ted and Woody the dog. Thank you
(Copied from Trip advisor)“Excellant cottages and superb service from friendly hosts.” 5 of 5 starsReviewed May 17, 2015 NEW River Cottage is set in a woodland setting alongside two other cottages and a converted Barn. All built around a stunning garden with unusual plants and a handy summerhouse full of information just right for easy reading in this suntrap. The cottage itself was clean and spacious with everything you could ask for, full of antique furniture, lots of comfy chairs, hi-fi and flat panel TV. A good comprehensive kitchen area with all you would need including all cleaning cloths etc brand new so not been used by others. ( A fad of mine!) The owners, Julian and kate provided excellent communication through emails in the booking process and gave really comprehensive pre-stay information that we found really useful. Car parking is available directly outside River Cottage which was very convenient. We would recommend any of the Chypons farm accommodation without hesitation for couples and families wanting a quiet, peaceful and convenient cottage situation for nearby St Ives and the rest of Cornwall. Wonderful break and quality time for rest and recuperation for my wife Dawn after a hip replacement operation. Could'nt fault it at all.
15/5/15 16:53 Holger R., Farm Cottage. Perfect cottage with very helpful owners, who know what you can do, if the sun is shining or it´s raining cats and dogs. Beautiful surroundings, and a nice pub with loveable people and the right music in walking distance. We (family with 3 kids) have had an eastern holiday we´ll never forget. Thank you Kate and Julian for everything!
7/5/15 21:01 Helen L River Cottage. Julian and Kate were wonderful hosts of their beautiful stone cottage. We arrived to flowers, scones, cream and jam and just what you need to get started. The spotless cottage is spacious, with very comfortable beds and furniture. The decor is rural cottage without the chintz. The kitchen is stocked with all you could need. Everything is clean and works efficiently. It is set in a beautiful part of the world and we loved rambling over the coastal footpaths and commons. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts who live on site. We received lots of helpful information before we arrived including an on line food order from a nearby farm store. As we don't use a car they organized taxis to pick us up and drop us at the delightful St. Erth train station, supplied us with bus schedules (yes, there is a great bus service at the end of the road!) and made friendly suggestions for places to visit. They have created a lovely informal communal garden with a small summer house replete with interesting books and information. We would definitely return and have already recommended it to many of our relatives and friends. Brilliant!!
3/5/15 08:53 John and Michelle M The Barn. Had a wonderful week Julien and Kate couldn't do enough for us. Hoping to go back next year.
30/4/15 21.05 Colin C River Cottage. Just coming to the end of a fantastic week at Chypons Farm. Perfect in every way. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough! Thank you Julian and Kate for your hospitality!
19/04/2015 16:18 Manfred B. Waterside Cosy cottage in great location The beautiful cottage is well located in a quiet spot between St. Ives and Penzance. The owner Julian was very helpful and gave lots of useful advice.
7/1/15 00:10 Jenny D Farm Cottage We spent a very enjoyable New Year in Farm Cottage which is full of character and charm and very well-equipped. Kate and Julian are great hosts. We celebrated new year's eve in St Ives, in fancy dress, and were impressed by the fireworks at midnight and the friendly atmosphere! Would definitely recommend Chypons Farm to anyone.
6/1/15 08:53 Emma R. Waterside. Very warm, welcoming and wonderful! A must stay for all those who like their creature comforts when you need a break from it all. Kate and Julian are wonderful hosts and provide a great friendly service.
31/12/14 18:16 The Breach Famiily. A big thank you for a memorable Christmas spent at Farm Cottage 2014. An Idillic location close to some wonderful places to visit, although a car is needed. Farm cottage was very spacious, beautifully presented and really well equipped . On arrival we were xWgreeted by a lovely Christmas tree a bag of festive goodies and a roaring fire. Kate and Julian take a great pride in ensuring you will want for nothing and were always very friendly helpful . Thoroughly recommend it for all ages. Thanks again.
13/10/14 15:30 Alan R River Cottage Thanks for making our stay with you so memorable. Great place, great surroundings good people. Freda and I were really impressed with the cottage. Thanks again
“Lovely cottage in a quiet location” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed from Trip advisor September 30, 2014 Jade P Julian and Kate were excellent hosts and they couldn't do enough for us. The cottage itself is so lovely and it has everything you could need. It's in a quiet location so there's no noise or anything to bother you. Many towns and attractions are within easy reach. The cottage was great and I would recommend it.
26/9/14 06:52 Peter Günther Waterside Wir verbrachten zu viert eine herrliche Woche im Waterside cottage und Dank der vielen nützlichen Tipps von Julian könnten wir tolle Ausflüge unternehmen. Sehr empfehlenswert sind Minack, tin mines und lizard Halbinsel. Durch die extrem gut ausgestattete Küche und Saintsbury in Pencance könnten wir uns oft was Leckeres zubereiten. Sehr gemütlich, freundlich und echt empfehlenswert. We spent a wonderful week four cottage at Waterside and thanks to the many tips of Julian useful we could do great trips. Highly recommended are Minack, tin mines and lizard peninsula. The extremely well equipped kitchen and Sainsbury in Penzance we could often prepare something delicious. Very welcoming, friendly and really recommendable.
We spent a nice and pleasant saty in Waterside. Our 2 weeks in this quiet cottage was perfect with the garden . Our little boy enjoy it! We also enjoy the great tradition of the Cream tea especially the one prepared by Kate and Julian for our arrival.
Patricia E River Cottage 14/9/14 09:03 We three sisters have just spent a week at Chypons Farm in the village of Nancledra and we had a wonderful week. The cottage was clean and comfortable and nicely decorated with everything you need, and a very peaceful garden. Situated a short drive from the hustle and bustle of tourists but only a short drive to the most wonderful beeches and cliff walks and lots of restaurants and pubs. Julian and Kate were most helpful and we were met with homemade scones and Jam. We had a fantastic week the only problem was a week is not long enough and would love to return.
Coryn F The Barn 08/09/2014 15:25 We had a very enjoyable week in Chypons Barn - Julian and Kate made us very welcome. Chypons Barn is set in the village of Nancledra which is just outside St Ives - so is away from the hustle and bustle of tourists. There's a lot of interesting places to visit and most easily accessible from Nancledra+ a lot of pubs and restaurants for meals out
Barry S The Barn 28/8/14 08:28 I THOUGHT THAT FOR A DOG FRIENDLY ACCOMODATION WE COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR ANYTHING MORE, IT WAS VERY CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE. IDEALLY WE WOULD HAVE LIKED A PAVEMENT ON THE ROAD LEADING UP TO THE LOCAL PUB.
Brigitte HF Waterside 27/8/14 23:36 We have spent 2 wonderful weeks on the Chypons Farm.Kate and Julian were wonderful and hearty hosts. Already before beginning the trip Julian supported us with many useful tips. And also during our stay Julian had good recommendations for us ready over and over again. Also the cottage met all the wishes. By the affectionate furnishing and many small comfort we felt almost like at home. With creamtea and fresh flowers we felt welcome immediately. The cottage is conveniently located and offers a good starting point for many activities. A great combination of hosts and lodging we highly recommend with pleasure.
Katie O. River Cottage 26/8/14 13:54 We have just returned from this cottage (Aug 14). We were very happy - spacious, very well equipped and impeccably clean. Can't fault it, was also great value for money and we plan to return one day. Also I had to rearrange the dates and cut short my stay at short notice and the owners were incredibly helpful and accommodating in relation to this, going out of their way to accommodate my new requirements (they were not obliged to do so but they did, to help me out). This was greatly appreciated.
9/8/14 15:01 Jeff B The Barn This is a brilliant cottage if you want to relax and chill out. The owners are very helpful and friendly, giving lots of information about the area. It is a great place to take your dog with several dog friendly beaches nearby. We would highly recommend the cottage and the area.
M Cole Farm Cottage 4/8/14 08:45 We really enjoyed our week in Chypons Farm Cottage. The cottage had wonderful character and plenty of space for a family of five with 3 teenagers. The place was excellently equipped, good internet, satellite TV, DVD player, a wonderful fireplace and most importantly for a family of five, 2 bathrooms! The garden was a fantastic asset we really enjoyed having a wonderful bbq, the garden house was equipped with all the bbq tools and a place to sit and read quietly. In summary fantastic location, quiet, very nicely appointed and would strongly recommend.
Emily F Farm Cottage 30 June 2014 12:36:26 We recently spent a week at Chypons Farm Cottage near St. Ives. We found the cottage itself to be in excellent condition, very clean and tidy with all the little details taken care of. The cottage was stocked with all necessary equipment for a self-catering holiday, with some very thoughtful touches such as a selection of books and games, CD player and a wealth of information on local days out and things to see. Kate and Julian were extremely kind and helpful - we felt very welcomed by them and they could not do enough to help us during our stay - from welcoming us with a lovely homemade cream tea, through to recommending places to eat out and helping us with travel plans on our days out. They were fantastic hosts and made our holiday that little bit more special. The cottage also benefitted from a beautiful shared garden which was very peaceful and private - suitable for relaxing and reading a book in the sunshine, enjoying a picnic at lunchtime and retreating to the summerhouse for a glass of wine and a game of scrabble in the evening! The cottage was situated a short 10 minute drive from St Ives, with easy links to park and ride services on both the bus and train into St Ives town. I would highly recommend staying at Chypons Farm, and cannot think of a single thing I would have changed! In fact, we have already re-booked for next year and will be passing on our recommendations to friends and family! Thank you for a fantastic holiday! xxx
4/6/14 13:41 Farm Cottage. Hi, six of us plus a 7 month old baby came to stay at Chypons farm from the 24th May for a week. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. The cottage had everything you could possible need whilst on holiday even baking equipment which we made use of. We found the location to be good because we felt it was out of the way enough to be relaxing but close enough to the main roads. Lovely surroundings with a summerhouse and picnic bench to use in the garden. Thanks for a great holiday :-)
25/05/2014 15:21 Waterside On arrival we were met by the owners, Kate and Julian, who were very welcoming. The cottage was lovely and a cream tea had been left for us. The garden and summerhouse at the accommodation was an added bonus, ideal for relaxing in with a cup coffee. Julian gave us lots of suggestions of where to visit and which beaches had great cafes etc. We wanted a great holiday and that's exactly what we got. John R
23/5/14 12:28 The Barn. Nice location close to St Ives and other places of interest. Lovely accommodation, comfy rooms and extremely well equipped. Dog friendly and the owners are very friendly and extremely helpful. The homemade scones was a nice surprise after a long trip... Sara & Carolyn
20/4/14 09:24 Farm Cottage Another fantastic stay at Chypons Farm, we stayed in the cottage and it has been perfect, the changes Kate & Juilian have made were amazing from the double glazing to the decor it was noticeable from the minute we stepped in the door. This is our 4th visit here, just love the location for all our favourite places.Thanks again for making us so welcome. We will definitely be back. Karen, John, Becky & Bradley
31/3/14 15:03 Farm Cottage Julian and Kate provided a lovely place to stay last week. We were in Farm Cottage which is full of art and interesting things. Thank you Julian for fixing the dvd player and fire! We were a litle inept. I would recommend Chypons as a lovely place to stay and will definitely be back one day. :) Madeleine
16/3/14 10:27 Thank you for our perfect, peaceful and beautiful holiday. The barn was wonderful and had everything we could possibly need. A real home from home. We stayed with our 1 year old daughter who was very content here and loved Dennis, the very cute resident dog. It was a wonderful location to go off and explore being only minutes drive from st ives and Penzance. Julian and Kate were very welcoming and provided recommendations for places to visit and eat (that all important Cornish pasty). The cream tea on arrival was just what we needed after our long drive. We will most definitely be coming back to stay here. Thank you again- Sarah, Andy and Penny xxx
8/3/14 16:49 Beautiful place to stay! lovely cottages, welcoming owners and brilliant area, lots to explore! with Ancient monuments dotted around the close area you couldn't be stuck for things to do or places to visit. I would highly recommend a stay at Chypons farm and look forward to returning there soon. NN the barn autumn 2013
14/11/13 12:37 Waterside July/August 2013 "We enjoyed every day at Chypons Waterside. Kate and Julian were lovely hosts and we felt very welcome. They took care that we get everything we need. The cottage was very comfortable and good equipped (we missed nothing). It was also a good place to start day trips (Julian gave us a lot of advices) or to stay in their "botanical garden". Wir haben jeden Tag in Chypons Waterside genossen. Kate und Julian waren wunderbare Gastgeber und wir fühlten uns sehr willkommen. Sie habe sich um alle unsere Belange gekümmert. Das Ferienhaus ist gemütlich und sehr gut eingerichtet gewesen (wir haben nichts vermisst). Es war auch ein idealer Startpunkt für Tagestrips (Julian gab uns dabei jede Menge Tips). Man konnte aber ebenso in ihrem schönen gepflegten "Botanischen Garten" verweilen." I hope you and Kate are doing well. We remember a lot our lovely stay at Chypons Waterside... I wish you all the best. Christian
8/11/13 12:24 Lovely welcome, very friendly and especially enjoyed the cream scones! Cottage was clean, warm and cosy and we loved the local pub The Engine, attending the quiz and firework display. Would highly recommend a stay here and hope to return in the future. Fay H Waterside November
9/10/13 08:03 Julian and Kate were without doubt very friendly and helpful to us and everyone who stays. The kitchen had everything you will need for a great meal or just snacks the lounge was warm and cosy. The bathroom and the shower rooms were large and clean. Both bedrooms were good sizes and beds comfortable .the Wi-Fi was free but did not work inside very much as the walls inside were thick, but this was a very minor fault and the rest of our stay was faultless. I can only say thank you, Steve & Kim W. River Cottage Sept/Oct
6/10/13 15:23 We had a very enjoyable stay at Chypons Barn this August. The accommodation was very clean and well equipped. Chypons Farm is also ideally suited for exploring West Cornwall. The coast road between St Ives and Sennen and the lighthouse at Lizard were among our favourite places. Thanks Kate and Julian, we will be back. Amanda, Darren and Samuel T
29/9/13 16:09 My wife and I stayed here in July 2013 with our 16 month old daughter. A lovely place to stay in a lovely part of the world. Couldn''t have asked for a better place to stay. Very homely cottage and very friendly and welcoming owners. Perfect for accessing St Ives - park and ride from Lelant salting's. So much to see and do locally. Lovely communal garden to relax in. Highly recommend this accommodation :-) We will be returning! Kevin D Chypons Barn
29/9/13 16:07 Comfortable cottage in a good location. A lovely comfortable cottage in a good location. There was plenty to do in the immediate area and the garden and surrounding of the cottage were beautiful. Angela D Farm Cottage
29/9/13 16:05 Lovely quaint cottage The cottage was very well equipped and very nicely decorated! The use of the garden with the summer house is a nice touch and the owners were very helpful and friendly. Nicky G Waterside
17/9/13 18:37 This cottage was wonderful with everything we needed. THE COUPLE RUNNING THEM WERE VERY HELPFUL AND VERY FRIENDLY. They have worked very hard to get such high standards in such a short time. It was lovely to be able to sit in the gardens as well. We went there during a very hot week but the cottage was very cool so we slept very well. We could not find anything wrong and had a very enjoyable holiday. WE shall return, maybe next year. Christine L in River Cottage
16/9/13 13:02 We stayed In River Cottage at Chypons farm in August. Great location and as with other comments Julian Kate so helpful if you needed any advice or help. It is central between St Ives/ Penzance, with Lands’ end and so many other attractions within easy reach. With a nice pub handy you couldn’t wish for more. The accommodation was top drawer ..recommended. Regards Neil S Liverpool
9/9/13 16:22 Our stay at Chypons was excellent, the peaceful and beautiful surroundings made it extra special, our cottage was very well equipped and charming. Julian & Kate are warm, friendly and helpful, generously lending us maps for our bicycle adventures in the local area. The train to St Ives was easy and meant we enjoyed the beautiful scenery (we decided not to hire a car for our holiday and do not regret this decision). Top highlights were cliff walking from Zennor to St Ives stopping to admire the seals on Julian's recommendation; cycling to Marazion; the Cornish roller-coaster (open top bus) round the coastline; surfing in Gwithian; and wonderful Cornish food - fresh fish and farm shop homegrown delights. We love Dennis too- Julian & Kate's young spaniel! Our favourite pasties and 'afternoon tea' ice cream were found in the idyllic and charming Mousehole at Jessie's Dairy. Thank you for such a relaxing and memorable holiday! Kate & Paul, River Cottage, September 2013
31/8/13 13:58 Just returned from a lovely week in Farm Cottage. The weather was good so we enjoyed a number of days out and about exploring ! Carbis Bay is beautiful as is Kynance Cove , The Lost Gardens of Helligan is a must ! Thanks to Julian's advice we found and enjoyed the best Cornish Pasty we've tasted in St Keverne and also stumbled across Roskilly Ice cream which is a gem of a place ! The cottage whilst secluded is also ideally situated to be able to enjoy both coasts and also very close to Marazion and Penzance as well as St Ives and Hayle. There's a lovely local pub which you can walk to across the fields. There's also lots of excellent walking in the area! This is the 4th time we've stayed at Farm Cottage and will definitely be returning ! Sam & Adrian Farm Cottage August
22/7/13 11:52 Our stay in Cornwall was very special and we were very fortunate to have found these lovely cottages on the internet - couldn't think of anywhere nicer to put our heads down. It was especially pleasing as we had selected Chypons Farm from Sydney, Australia and were just hoping it would be as good as it looked - and it was. The cottages, although seeming very secluded, were so close to so many beautiful places and Kate and Julian's advice on where to visit were spot on and we thoroughly enjoyed these special places in a wonderful part of the UK. We especially enjoyed the "Float and Ride" for a visit to Falmouth and St Mawes. By the end of our week, we felt as though we were leaving old friends behind - what a wonderful time we had. Harry & Pam River Cottage June
2/7/13 18:40 Just returned from a 2 week stay in Waterside Cottage we had a lovely relaxing stay, Kate & Julian were very welcoming and helpful, the cottage is very comfortable & location lovely. Hoping to go back again in September. Mr & Mrs H June 2013
Chypons Barn is the ideal location to use as a base to explore the Penwith Penninsula section of the South West Coast Path. It’s central position makes it easy to complete manageable sections of the walk with the added bonus of returning to cosy, comfortable accommodation at the end of an exhilarating day. We spent a fantastic 2 weeks in June here and managed to complete the section from Portreath to Porthleven (73 miles) walking alternate days. This still gave us plenty time to visit all the many other attractions this area has to offer. This was done by splitting the walk into sections of roughly 10-12 miles each, using the car to drive to where we wanted to finish, then using public transport to get us to the start, enabling us to walk the coastal path back to the car with no time constraints, giving plenty of time for lunch or coffee breaks. For example driving to Hayle, bus to Portreath and walking back to Hayle, firstly along high level cliffs with the sea far below, then through the dunes and golden sands along the sweep of St. Ives bay, never a lonely or remote walk but still a scenic and rewarding one with facilities for food and drink along the route. Or driving to St Just then taking the open topped Cornwall Explorer(no 300) to Porthcurno and walking back via the most Westerly lenghth of coast in England, with its great granite headlands and massive rock outcrops, interspersed with isolated coves. Lands End can be visited and a stop at the Beach restaurant at Sennen cove for their chocolate brownies is recommended. As well as an ideal base for the South West Coast Path, Chypons is in easy reach of the Coast to Coast mineral tramway walk as featured in Julia Bradbury’s “railway walks” series on T.V. Again we combined car and bus, driving to Portreath, parking, then taking the bus to Devoran, walking the 11 miles back on easy , well signposted trails through Cornwall’s mining heritage area, with a stop in Scorrier for lunch. For anyone wanting to experience the fantastic scenery of the coast path, but not wanting to take on the rigours of long distance walking and carrying all the kit you might need, returning daily to accomodation of the highest standard in an idyllic location we recommend Chypons as the perfect holiday destination. Thanks again. Best regards Ian & Fiona
In a magical spot, straddling the uplands between St Ives and Penzance, Chypons Farm is a beautiful and very practical location. We had a fabulous week blessed by lovely Cornish sunshine allowing us to explore the many fascinating nooks and crannies of Cornwall's unique landscape. The actual accommodation is perfect and is micro-managed excellently down to the smallest details - no scrimping or mean-mindedness here. The owners are thoughtful, considerate and very helpful and the local paper girl Kerry will even deliver a newspaper every morning to chill out with. We had a great time here and hope you do too. Michael and Lisa, North Durham.
Just spent a lovely week in Farm Cottage. Very spacious comfortable and well furnished. Beautiful area and so convenient for sightseeing. Would not hesitate to recommend this Cottage. Julian and Kate are very friendly and helpful. Patricia H and family 20 May 2013
Had a wonderful time down in Cornwall and staying at the farm cottage made it all the better. Plenty of space and great hosts whom provide lovely cream teas for when we arrived. Would definitely consider staying again. We pretty much visited everywhere in cornwall and the central location made his easy. Adam & Nicola May 4th 2013
“Wonderful cottage, met all our needs and expectations” We loved our stay at Chypons farm, the cottage was wonderful and very homely it was just what we wanted (the decor was perfect!) Kate & Julian where very welcoming, we loved the scones and cream awaiting us! We wanted a break away for a couple of days and this couldn't of been a better location, amazing walks, the wonderful town of St Ives and fab local pubs we were spoilt for choice! I can’t recommend this cottage enough we can’t wait to come back. xxx Jody & Rich May 13, 2013
We spent a very relaxing and comfortable week in the Waterside. Well-furnished and spotlessly clean. Well located with plenty of nearby pubs serving good food. The cream tea waiting for us on arrival was a nice touch and was thoroughly enjoyed. Kate & Julian, the owners were most helpful. Been here several times now & we recommend it. David & Lorna 27-04-2013
We’ve loved the Barn – it was recommended by friends who stayed here before us. Many thanks also for makings feel so really welcome. Christine & Donald April 2013
Have just returned after a lovely stay in waterside cottage, the cream tea waiting for us on arrival was a nice touch and was thoroughly enjoyed. As usual the cottage was clean and cosy, a real home from home, Chypons Farm is in an excellent location with all sites and walks near by , we will definitely be back. Karen W 15/04/13
My daughter and I have just had a very pleasant stay at River Cottage. The Cottage and surroundings were excellent and felt like a real home-from-home. Julian and Kate couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and Julian proved to be an excellent guide to the ssurrounding attcations which are abundant. We particularly enjoyed St Ives, Marazion and Falmouth not to mention the two local hostelries - "The Engine" and "The Tinners". We will definitely be returning as soon as time will allow. Chris D 11/04/13
We have just returned from a lovely weeks stay at Chypons Farm. A lovely stone converted barn with plenty of space and kept in immaculate condition. Very clean and tidy. Julian made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We will be back again soon and thanks again for a lovely stay. Andy & Heather 10/04/13
Vi har nettopp hatt en meget behagelig påskeferie på Farm Cottage, Chypons Farm. Flott steinhus med meget gode fasiliteter, vi ble umiddelbart imponert over hvor godt utstyrt og lettstelt huset var, og en vakker hage. Et særdeles hyggelig vertskap var alltid tilgjengelig med gode råd om alt fra matinnkjøp av lokale produkter (Trenowin farm shop anbefales), fotturer langs kysten, lokale puber, fiskebutikker og trivelige landsbyer i området. Vi har vandret på spektakulære kyststier, besøkt St. Ives og Mousehole, sett mye vakker natur, kjørt gokarts og opplevd the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Vi har også fått mange ideer til vårt neste Cornwall-besøk, og kommer gjerne tilbake til trivelige Chypons Farm. Liker du tradisjonell engelsk cottage-stil er dette stedet. Tusen takk til Kate og Julian for et flott opphold! Sverre U L 08/4/13
We have just had a very pleasant Easter holiday at Farm Cottage, Chypons Farm. Great stone house with very good facilities, we were immediately impressed at how well equipped and easy to keep the house was, and a beautiful garden as well. Our very nice host was always available with good advice on everything from grocery shopping of local products (Trenowin farm shop recommended), coastal walks, local pubs, fish shops and delightful villages in the area. We have walked the spectacular coastal trails, visited St. Ives and Mousehole, seen a lot of beautiful nature, driven go-karts and experienced the Lost Gardens of Heligan. We've also got lots of ideas for our next visit to Cornwall, and look forward to returning to charming Chypons Farm. If you like traditional English cottage-style property, this is the place to come. Many thanks to Kate and Julian for a great stay! Jill S L 8/4/13
A fantastic stay at the Farm Cottage. The cottage itself is well equiped with everything you need for your stay and very clean and tidy. Our two children aged 14 and 11 really liked the cosy twin room which is just off the main bedroom upstairs. The downstairs bedroom can get a bit chilly in cooler weather but it has an electric blanket which certainly helped. Julian was vey promt and extremely helpful in solving a minor problem which occured during our stay. We would definately stay again and also would recommend to our friends. Sarah M 9/4/13
We found the location between St Ives and Penzance ideal. Quiet location but with easy access to the nearby towns. We stayed at River Cottage and found it nice, cosy and well furnished. Would definitely recommend. Ufuoma O 27/3/13
Farm Cottage has become our second home. Ideally situated between St. Ives, Penzance and the rugged north coast. A very warm welcome from Julian and Kate, a cosy wood burning stove and everything you could want provided for a perfect Cornish retreat. Annie H 12/3/13
We stayed at Waterside Cottage over the New Year and it was lovely! The space is cozy and feels like home away from home. Beautiful view with the comforting sound of the creek out of the main bedroom. We can't wait to come back. It's a lovely and quiet location, close enough for a jaunt to the Engine Inn for an unwind and perfect for getting to Penzance and St.Ives. Patrick and Aga 11/3/13
We spent a very relaxing and comfortable week in The Barn. Well furnished and spotlessly clean. A good sized kitchen with the latest appliances. Well located with plenty of nearby pubs serving food. Kate and Julian, the owners, were most helpful. Recommended. Christine and Paul 11/3/13
Thank you for a wonderful break, Julian & Kate could not have been more helpful, our accomodation was superb, kitted out with everything you could possible need for your stay, their attention to detail was fantastic especially the cornish tea and scones on arrival. Can't recommend enough and definately worth a second visit. Alison A 10/3/13
