“Utterly fabulous”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This characterful chalet is in a remote and peaceful location, with just a 10 minute walk along a bridle-path to lovely Towan beach and is ideally situated for all the stunning walking opportunities of Roseland.

Lettings operate on a "leave it as you would like to find it" basis and this level of trust appears to work well, because I found it as clean & well equipped as I could have wished for, so I took that as a challenge to ensure that I left it spotless for the next visitors to enjoy the same first impression following my departure.

There are no retail opportunities closer than a very pleasant 35-40 minute walk across fields and along bridle-paths (bring a good torch with you if perambulating after dark), the nearest village is Gerrans (no shop and a pub (The Sub Standard) (sic) that is the subject of it's own review on TripAdvisor - best to check it out beforehand if you're considering dining options). This chalet is perfectly set up for self catering types who like peace and isolation - I loved it!

Liked best: Hearing constant birdsong and the breeze blowing through the trees in the absence of all extraneous noise
Liked least: Leaving at the end of my stay, you can still the furrows in the ground where I was dragged away kicking and screaming

Reviewed 21 November 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We have visited Towan Beach Chalet three times and are going again in January. Beautiful, peaceful location. Clean and comfy chalet. Home from home. Secluded beach with seals through autumn and winter. Lots of lovely walks and nearby places to visit all easily accessible. We love it.

“What a lovely holiday”

This was our 3rd visit in as many years.The booking process is stright forward with good comunication from the owners. The chalet is very comfortable and welcoming and is set in lovely countryside. The sandy beach is a 10 min walk away and is dog friendly and never crowded. As the owners of 2 Labradors , this is the ideal holiday for us and we look forward to visiting again next year.
