'Maple' with 'Willow' beyond.

The SeaView from 'Furze'

Situated on the south-facing side of the Trebarwith valley, with an uninterrupted view across farmland and sea to Trevose Head Lighthouse, Chylean is rural but not isolated being the last property in the hamlet of Penpethy, 2 miles from the sea, 2 miles from Tintagel and 3 miles from Camelford.

 

Beautiful Sunsets behind the Headlands

Our Peaceful, Unspoilt, Wooded Valley

Our 3 cedar chalets are set in 2 acres of Unspoilt Cornish Countryside with typical Cornish flora and fauna - so bring your binoculars!
Some local residents caught on camera by our visitors:-

For Birdwatchers :- 

Our RSPB 'Garden Birdwatch' saw all these birds on our birdtable :

Robin, House Sparrow, Hedge Sparrow, Blackbird, Pidgeon, Greater Spotted Woodpecker

  Blue Tit, Great Tit, Coal Tit, Long-tailed Tit, Chaffinch, Greenfinch, Goldfinch

Also seen in the area have been Starlings, Jay, Wagtail, Buzzard, Kestrel, Seagulls, and there are probably many more we don't know about !

For Stargazers :-

With no villages nearby and low-key site lighting we have no 'light pollution' so our night skies are truly dark.

From the top of Chylean on a clear night there is an uninterrupted view of the entire night sky and all it's Stars.
Trevose Head lighthouse can be seen flashing to keep sailors safe.

 All the chalets have a  cooker,  water heater, refrigerator, shower cubicle, flush  toilet, fan heater and colour television. Each has a futon in the lounge/kitchen. Only the larger chalet has a washing machine and drier.
