Chy Dama Wyn is set in Couch's Mill, a peaceful hamlet about a mile from the popular riverside village of Lerryn. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside belonging to the Boconnoc estate that was once owned by William Pitt. The nearest shop is in the village which spreads along both banks of Lerryn creek and messing about on the river is a big part of local life. It was here that Kenneth Graham based Wind in the Willows and the tales of Ratty and Mole on the riverbanks, overshadowed by Ethy Manor (Toad Hall) on the hillside above the village. The Ship Inn serves delicious local food and is a great place for an evening beer. Lostwithiel is 3 miles away and offers a wider range of shops. Chy Dama Wyn is a charming old stone cottage which many years ago served as the village shop. It has now been carefully modernised to provide very comfortable and characterful accommodation. The Lerryn River forms the boundary at the end of the garden. Because there is no light pollution, the garden can be a great place for star gazing.

The village has a post office and village shop, "Lerryn River Stores", which also provides fresh tea, coffee and cakes seven days a week, ideal for walkers taking advantage of the many beautiful walks in the area. The Ship Inn, dates from at least 1762 and there is an Elizabethan bridge crossing the river or alternatively why not try crossing using the famous stepping stones. The village hosts an annual 'Seagull' race, for any type of watercraft providing it is propelled by a 'Seagull' outboard motor. This event attracts competitors from all over the world looking for an extraordinary challenge.


We love staying there and the big garden is a bonus for our dog. The owners are very friendly and helpfulMr R Jefferies - 3rd October 2017
The property was lovely and was ideal for our needs. The garden was an added bonus for us On a personal basis I would have liked a bath and I think a second toilet would be an advantage. The holiday cottage was ideal for us with the lovely secluded and enclosed garden for the dog. The owners are lovely people and we found it very interesting talking with them. When we contacted company it was a very pleasant change to be able to talk to someone, Sue, who was very helpful and efficient and not to have to do everything anonymously onlineMr R Jefferies - 6th April 2017
