Chy Kala literally translates to 'straw house' and this lovingly designed property has been constructed using the environmentally friendly straw-bale method. Impeccable attention to detail has been given to the design and build of this wonderful house, which is sympathetic to its beautiful countryside surroundings featuring handcrafted English Green Oak, Douglas Fir, Chestnut and Larch throughout. 

Entering this home there is a central lobby, with a downstairs WC to the right. Off the hallway is the large well-equipped kitchen/breakfast room. Also off the hall is a light and spacious lounge/dining room with comfortable sofas, woodburner, TV and french doors leading out to the garden. The whole of the downstairs has slate tiled floors which benefits from under floor heating throughout.

A beautifully hand built light oak staircase leads you up to the first floor with a roomy landing, which features a balcony with views over the garden and countryside. Off the landing there is the master bedroom with double bed and an en-suite bathroom with bath and separate shower. The second and third bedrooms have twin beds and all three bedrooms have lovely countryside views. The family bathroom with large double shower and bath is also on this floor.

Outside there is a gated driveway and enclosed gardens with lawn and patio area with seating. There is also a wood store where you can help yourself to logs for the woodburner.

Chy Kala is located in the pretty little village of Newtown-in-St Martin, on the Lizard Peninsula, and is within walking distance of the Prince of Wales pub which serves excellent food. Chy Kala is the perfect base for exploring the rest of The Lizard peninsula area of Cornwall and the nearby town of Helston is a just a 15 minute drive away.

Previous Customer,


Helford is an idyllic little village set on the Helford River, just south of Falmouth. The area is blessed with stunning scenery – beautiful countryside, glorious walks following the meandering river and a plethora of quiet little coves and bays along the coast.

The whole region is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a number of picturesque villages and hamlets dotted throughout the landscape. Whether you stay in Helford village, Maenporth, Gweek, Coverack, Manaccan, Flushing or Porthallow, each has its own charm and character, with thatched and white-washed cottages a real feature. Why not explore all of them, sampling the quintessentially English village pubs along the way!

Helford is situated on the east coast of the Lizard Peninsula, with Lizard Point a must-see attraction. Other great days out in the area include the Seal Sanctuary, the sub-tropical paradise of Trebah Gardens and firm family favourite, Flambards. The nearby towns of Porthleven and Helston offer restaurants, supermarkets and pubs and, of course, the harbour town of Falmouth is just up the coast, providing for all your shopping needs, excursions and more.
