Tucked away just out of sight of the golden dunes of one of Cornwall's most beautiful beaches, Little Chy self-catering in Holywell Bay is one of North Cornwall's best kept secrets. The owners of Little Chy have recently restored this beautiful home
The owners of Little Chy have recently restored this stylish self-catering abode, adorning it with carefully chosen mid-century design pieces, upcycled finds and a big warm dose of Cornish hospitality.
“Chy” means home in Cornish and, whilst Little Chy is smaller than the main house where the owners reside, it is certainly not little! Perfect for a couple looking for a romantic break by the beach, Little Chy’s contemporary open-plan living area is spacious and welcoming. From the fully-equipped brand new fitted kitchen, to stylish additions such as Ercol and G Plan furniture sitting alongside upcycled vintage pieces, this self-catering holiday house in Holywell Bay ticks all the boxes.
Little Chy has been lovingly created and guests can look forward to thoughtful touches such as fresh flowers and a welcome pack on arrival, luxury hand-soap in the bathrooms. These little touches set Little Chy apart from more run-of-the-mill self-catering homes in North Cornwall, and will delight couples looking for a perfect romantic holiday by the beach. After a day stomping the cliff path there’s nothing quite so delicious as snuggling up on the sofa to watch romantic movies with a tub of Cornish ice cream and a glass of something bubbly…
This stylish holiday home in Holywell Bay boasts a generous king-size bedroom with adjoining en suite shower room. If you are enjoying a babymoon or holidaying with a young toddler, the owners will be only too happy to supply a standard wooden cot or low toddler bed at no extra charge (please request either in advance of arrival), just bring your own cot linen and let the owners know if you’d like use of the room dividing screen too. The en suite bathroom's walk-in double shower is spacious enough for two (!) and the ideal place to wash sandy toes after padding up from the beach. Little Chy’s king-size bedroom suite has the added bonus of a separate WC, so no jostling for the shower room in the morning.
•The North Coast of Cornwall is particularly beautiful which is why even Hollywood loves it; Bond fans will be interested to learn that Die Another Day was filmed right here on the golden sands of Holywell! More recently the bay was used as a filming location for the new series of Poldark (although we are yet to see him ourselves, unfortunately!) For those looking to try their hand at surfing, Holywell Bay and the nearby beaches of Penhale, Crantock and Perranporth are all popular surf spots where surfers of all abilities flock to test their agility and prowess upon the Atlantic breakers found on this stretch of coast. The busier surf town of Newquay is just a short drive away.
There is parking for two cars on the driveway to the front of the property. The owners live in the main house above but have their own side of the drive so won’t block your view of the dune-tops. Surfboards can be kept to the side of the house, whilst there is a small store out front for buckets n’ spades, wellies and crab lines. Little Chy is 200 yards from the sand dunes of Holywell Bay and (dependant on tide!) just an 5-minute stroll to the beach.
