Deugh An Chy

Godolphin Cross, Cornwall

Great for families or friends, lovers of West Cornwall and of peace, comfort and style


4 bedrooms


Sleeps 7


A truly beautiful home with heaps of interesting books on the shelves, things to cook with in the kitchen, fresh flowers and an eclectic mix of styles – this is a well-loved place, the antithesis of a sterile holiday cottage and families will be very happy here – there’s even a piano in the living room if you feel inclined to play. Stand at the bottom of the pretty (enclosed) garden with plenty of lawn, and the 1780s stone cottage appears to be smiling down at you. Inside is bright, light and filled with comfortable seating and lovely big tables for convivial meals. Fling open the wide French doors from the underfloor-heated kitchen; on chillier days there’s a big wood-burner, sofas to snuggle in and books to explore. Cooks will be thrilled with the kitchen: find space for chatterers, loads of cupboards and a state of the art oven. Sleep like logs in peaceful bedrooms with pretty fabrics, smooth white cotton on deep mattresses and views. Walk to the National Trust’s Godolphin House; you’re close to Porthlevan with its shops and restaurants. Deugh An Chy means ‘House of Welcome’ and that’s certainly how it feels.

A home- from- home,especially if yours happens to be particularly lovely, comfortable, clean, well- appointed & welcoming. Our second visit, plus two grandchildren (5 & 8) from the US, who learned badminton and cricket in the safe, spacious & v well - tended garden, then ice-creams on the terrace while watching the wildlife.The information file provided is full of ideas about things to do locally, whatever the weather. Catch the train from St Erth to St Ives for wonderful sea views. After busy days we all slept soundly in our extremely comfortable beds. The perfect Cornish holiday retreat.

What a wonderful place to stay! Deugh an Chy was the perfect base for our week in Cornwall, the cottage is a delight and the surrounding area had so much to offer. There was plenty of room for our party of five adults, the bedrooms were all very comfortable with plenty of storage and really good quality bedlinen. The bathrooms were very high spec and as for the kitchen, well, we couldn't have asked for more. Drinks on the terrace were a regular fixture, (with entertainment provided by the peacock, a pheasant and the resident rabbits) before dinner around the lovely kitchen table. Perfect.

The cottage is beautifully appointed and has a well equipped kitchen, which the whole family used to the full. Beds and bedrooms were good and the lounge comfortable and cosy. It has a pleasant garden which if the weather had allowed we would have spent more time in. Booking was simple, the owners very friendly and helpful and we would certainly go again.

Anne, Burntwood

I was so pleased I booked this cottage for our week down in cornwall. It's in a really peaceful spot with so many lovely places to explore nearby. We found it extremely cosy and well equipped with everything we needed to cook up some meals as we didn't want to eat out all week. Our 2 year old also loved the house and garden as it's very child friendly. Owners were really helpful when I made the booking. So all in all a perfect week and we would definitely return here.

  • The heritage: National Trust owned Godolphin House is a 20 minute walk away through fields and woods. World famous St Michael's Mount is a 15 minute drive - walk across the causeway, boat back and watch the wind surfers in the bay - or join them!
  • The beaches: From super safe blue flag Carbis Bay for the bucket and spade brigade to Sennen Cove and Porthmeor for surfers. Pretty coves on the Lizard including Kennack Sands and Kynance Cove for rock pools. Boat trips from Porthleven and Penzance.
  • The gardens: the sub-tropical valley gardens of Trebah where you can enjoy occasional concerts, Trelissick with its ferry to the Roseland Peninsuland and Glendurgan with its maze -all within 40 mins. Lost Gardens of Heligan and Eden Project - 1 hour away.
  • The Art: Visit Tate St Ives and the surrounding quirky galleries including Barbara Hepworth's home and studio .The Penlee Gallery in Penzance celebrates classic Cornwall. Other galleries in Newlyn, Truro and Falmouth.
  • The walks: Walk up Godolphin Hill from the house and view north and south coasts. The dramatic and beautiful coastal path is easily accessible - choose a section and take a picnic or visit a pub for lunch on the way.
