Chy an Eglos is a private holiday home rental, 4 miles from St Ives in the heart of the hamlet of Zennor. 

The local pub, with its sea view pub garden, is pigeon steps away, as is the South-West Coast path and all its breath-taking scenery out over the Atlantic Ocean. This home away from home, is a Grade II listed Georgian style property with four bedrooms, sleeping 7-8. Well behaved dogs are very welcome.


The Lounge

Our lovely lounge has seating for seven, soft squidgy sofas perfect for relaxing or napping in, and plenty of books and games for your enjoyment.  There’s also a cosy wood burner for any chilly evenings; fluffy blankets, logs and kindling are supplied, all you need to bring are your slippers!  There’s all the entertainment facilities you could possibly need, with Internet enabled TV, DVD Player and a wide selection of films, wireless speakers, Google Smart Speaker... and super-fast WIFI throughout the house. 

The Kitchen & Dining

We have a very well-equipped kitchen, with farmhouse style dining table for eight people, and a large open fireplace with an Aga, that gently heats the room making it a cosy place to hang out for long lazy lunches or fun family meals.  There are instructions in the kitchen for how to use the Aga if you’re not initiated – and suggestions for waffle and pancake making for indulgent breakfasts!  The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, under-counter fridge, and Nespresso maker.  There is a second fridge and freezer in the utility, along with washing machine and tumble drier.  There is also a Weber BBQ in the courtyard garden which you are welcome to use.  

The Bedrooms

We have taken the time to make sure all our bedrooms have comfortable beds and extra lovely bed linen to ensure you have a peaceful nights sleep.  A fluffy hand and bath towel for each guest is provided, and additional beach towels are also available.  Hairdryers are available in 3 of the 4 rooms. 

The Master bedroom has a super-king bed, which can be arranged into two full sized single beds if required.  It’s a spacious and light room, decorated in the palate of St Ives, and has views out over the front garden.  When made into a super-king the bed has luxurious mattress topper for extra comfort.   


The Double bedroom is a king-sized wrought iron bed, decorated in hues of blue.  You might not hear the Atlantic from the bedroom, but you know it’s only a couple of minutes walk away. 


The Single bedroom is standard sized, and people often comment that this is their favourite room.  There’s something about the light and airy feel and the room’s views of the garden and up across to the hill and dairy farm on the other side of the village, that frame the serenity of this part of the world perfectly. 


The Bunkbed room has two 6x3ft beds, so standard width and only 3 inches shorter than a standard single – suitable for adults and children alike.  We provide games, toys and a selection of books that we hope will inspire a fun stay.  Recalling stories of the Mermaid of Zennor or the Mousehole Cat are some of our favourite bedtime reads!  A child stair-gate can be provided, and a travel cot too if required. 

The Bathroom

Spacious family bathroom comprising of a bath with shower over, WC, sink & heated towel rail. Two fluffy towels are provided for each person, and beach towels are also available in the summer months.
