Chy Pol is a charming, two-bedroom bungalow resting on the outskirts of St Minver, a quaint village just a short drive from the coast in Cornwall.
Boasting off-road parking for two cars, an enclosed courtyard, and a collection of well-presented, contemporary interiors, this delightful abode welcomes a family or group of four friends seeking a refreshing, self-catered Cornish escape.
Park up out front of Chy Pol, taking a brief moment to soak in your new surroundings before heading inside. Upon entering, feel instantly at home as you're greeted by a tastefully-appointed, open-plan living space housing a fully-equipped kitchen, a dining table with ample seating, and an inviting sitting area with sofa, chair, a crackling woodburning stove, and a sleek, wall-mounted Smart TV.
On warmer days, make the most of the enclosed courtyard and there is a garden area, pulling up a chair to delight in some alfresco dining with the help of the barbecue. If bringing a canine companion, there is a dog exercise field through arch between neighbours numbers 3 and 4, behind the rest of the block, to give them extra space to run.
When the sun has set, head back indoors to refresh with a refreshing cleanse under the shower before you finally hunker down for a well-earned rest in either a plush king-size or bunk bedroom.
If you can tear yourself from your lovely new base, jump in the car and explore what's on offer in your local region.
Take the short drive to Rock to stock up at the local Nursery Stores for your essentials and why not tuck into lunch or dinner at The Pityme Pub, The Mariners or for a fine dining treat, The Dining Room? You'll find plenty of temptations at Barnecutts Bakery and can purchase your fresh fish from the fishmongers. Keep going down the road which ends in the beach car park and enjoy a stroll on the coastal path or along the beach.
For a full day out, make a beeline for Polzeath, a bustling coastal town popular with surfers, where you and your loved ones can spend a day sunbathing on Polzeath Beach, hiring a board and trying out the waves or savouring the local cuisine with a meal at the Cracking Crab or Surfside.
From Polzeath, the steep coastal path rises to take you round to take in unrivalled sea views at Pentire Point and hike around to the Rumps, a stunning nature reserve home to rugged cliff sides and scenic hiking paths.
Enjoy all of this and more when you choose a stay at Chy Pol.
