Chypons Farm is a collection of holiday cottages in a wooded valley, just outside St Ives. Once a farm, these 300-year-old granite buildings have been beautifully converted into four holiday lets and a self-contained B&B suite.
Farm Cottage sleeps six people, Waterside Cottage takes up to four guests, and River Cottage and The Barn each have room for three visitors. The B&B Suite is perfect for two. The cottages are arranged around a courtyard planted with cheerful pots and surrounded by mature woodland. Inside, the cottages are individually-decorated and extremely comfortable, with those thoughtful little touches that make a holiday extra-special.
We 'discovered' Chypons Farm around 9 years ago and have been back numerous times since (as well as recommending it to friends and family who now stay too!) we usually stay in The Barn as it's nice and cosy for the two of us.
As always, the welcome from Kate and Julian was warm and inviting, they are always on hand to offer advice and help. The Barn itself is like a home from home, plenty of space to put away your clothes and food! Since we last stayed a new heating system has been installed so we were so toasty!
The Farm is in a perfect location, we can easily get to anywhere we want to in ...more
Excellent warm welcome by Julian & Kate, roaring fire on arrival along side a Cornish cream tea with home baked scones. The cottage has everything you would have in your own home and there is a warmth and homely feel within the cottage.

Lovely place to stay - a farmhouse with everything needed and just a generally pleasant set of buildings in a village just outside of St. Ives. It was particularly nice to have a river running past the bedroom. There are a few pubs a short drive away, and St. Ives is around 10 mins away by car, or longer by train (leaving the car at a station park and ride, as suggested by the host). The only downside is that you do need a car whilst staying, as in addition to the drives to St. Ives etc., there don't seem to be any immediately accessible walks from the farm, and there are no pathways along the...more
After initial trouble locating the property (our fault) Julian (owner) was there there to welcome us. We were later than expected time as there was a delay on train arrival, and picking up hire car. We arrived at 1900.
River Cottage was a delightful property, very well equipped and decorated. Everything one would expect at a holiday home.
Milk, tea bags and coffee sachets were provided
An extra bonus was a plate of scones, with clotted-cream and jam. Thank you.
Julian suggested that if we wanted to eat out he could phone the nearest pub, to book us a table, which we did.
The pub, 'The Eng...more
