The Experience

Go rock-pooling on Gyllyngvase Beach, and head for the café’s hot spot: an outdoor sofa with those ever-changing sea views. The position of this immaculate 1930s villa, on a residential street a stroll from the coast, is idyllic.

With three luxurious bedrooms and a cloakroom back downstairs, it’s perfect for a group of friends or a family. The kitchen is a cook’s dream with all the basics left for you too. Outside is a wraparound garden with sunny places to sit all day, including a large patio with a barbecue and all you need for al fresco dining. On windy days settle in with games, toys and wood-burners (there are two plus a good stock of logs).

Falmouth is abuzz with creativity. Check out its surf shops, craft shops, artisan coffee shops, and Rick Stein’s lunchtime fish and chips. Book a Sunday roast at the Boathouse on Beacon Street. Take a trip to St Mawes across the bay. Hike the coastal path to Maenporth beach, or to Henry VIII’s fortress, Pendennis – two miles, and worth every step.

A lovely holiday house, extremely well positioned for Gylly beach and all facilities were excellent. David and Denise were brilliant hosts, highly recommend staying here.

Katherine, London

Our family, with three kids under 5, had a magical time at Chy Wyn. Everything was taken care of - we were provided with stair gates, high chairs, and even bath mats and kids toiletries. Not only that but the house has everything you need for the beach. This just made it so much easier and therefore more relaxing! The house is very comfortable - easy to cook in, reliable WiFi, strong hot water, comfortable beds - and we arrived to fresh scones, bread, and basics. The area can not be beaten. A safe path directly to the beast beach in town. You won’t regret choosing chy wyn! We will be back.

Zoe, Reigate

This is the way to run holiday accommodation. We thought we'd walked into a new house. There was everything we needed, and everything worked. David and Denise are fabulous, helpful hosts and their generous welcome pack was much appreciated. I think this is probably the best self-catering experience we've had!

Steve & Debbie, Norwich

What an amazing house and hosts. The house is gorgeous and so comfortable! And David and Denise were magnificent hosts. There was a yummy Cornish Crammer Tea awaiting us on arrival as well as other treats which were greatly appreciated. David responded very quickly to any questions or queries. Highly recommended.

Richard, London

This sublime home exudes calm and charm and is just minutes from the beach. It has been masterfully restored and furnished to perfection by David and Denise and is understated beachside luxury in every possible way, from gorgeous rainfall walk-in showers to the feather sofas and top-notch cotton bed linen. Plus, it has a great garden for relaxing and al fresco dining. I loved it.

We’ll be back, likely in the Summer

Glen and his family were excellent friendly guests and left Chy Wyn in great condition. We would be very happy to host them again. 5 stars. David

David, United Kingdom

Chy Wyn is everything you could possibly want in a holiday rental, it has recently had a total renovation and everything in it is brand new and excellent quality. The beds were so comfortable, the bathrooms so luxurious, the towels big and fluffy. Sumptuous feather sofas in the lounge. There is so much attention to detail in Chy Wyn that anyone booking it and staying here will definitely not be disappointed. Waking up each morning with a beautiful sea view will be a memory that will last forever. I cannot recommend this property enough, and will be returning here for sure.

Michelle, Suffolk

This house is TOTALLY worth a visit! It was just as it was in the photos and absolutely lovely. David and Denise were great hosts and thought of lots of little extra touches to make our stay more pleasant. There were 4 lovely beach towels hanging up and waiting for us along with some games for our children and lovely flowers in all the rooms. The house is perfectly situated and literally, only a few minutes walk to the beach. There are lots of nice restaurants in Falmouth. Even if the weather isn't great, the house is very comfortable and homely, you can easily stay there relaxing.

The neighbourhood

The house is in a quiet residential street, close to tennis courts and a hop from Gyllyngvase beach; pop to the beach for your morning croissants and sourdough; walk into the centre in 15 minutes. A university town with a strong emphasis on the arts, Falmouth has an all-year-round buzz: galleries, sailing regattas, ferry trips, foodie festivals, independent shops, excellent restaurants and more.

Local points of interest from David Tanat-Jones

  • Try a pasty in one of the shops along the main Church Street and The Moor; take away fish and chips at the award winning Harbour Lights; pick up organic sourdough and granary bread from Gylly Beach Bakery and have lunch with a view at the cafe.
  • Lots of good restarants in walking distance: Rick Stein’s Maritime House or Hooked on the Rocks for great fish, Princess Pavilion for Sunday roast and gigs/entertainment.
  • Good pubs too: The Boathouse for a range of ale, wine, cider and great food, or Jacob’s Ladder for drinks and live music.
  • Have a go at kayaking and paddleboarding at Gylly Beach; play golf at Falmouth golf course with stunning views across Falmouth Bay. On rainy days, visit the National Maritime Museum (20-minute walk) or the independent Cinema at the Moor in town.
  • Maenporth (30-minute walk) has a great beach, cafe and cafe/restaurant The Cove with fab views. Join the South West Coastal Path down the lane from Chy Wyn or take a ferry trip across the bay to St Mawes.
  • Wander 26 acres of sub-tropical grounds at Trebah Gardens (15-minute drive) or visit the National Trust Trelissick Gardens in Feock (25-minute drive). the Eden Project and historic Georgian town of Charlestown are around an hour's drive.


David Tanat-Jones

David and Denise, who live nearby, greet you with a generous welcome pack. Recently retired property professionals, they sold their property business in 2017 and upped sticks to Falmouth. With two grandchildren living up the road, and a home "with views to die for”, they could not be happier here.
